I’m having issues with the focus lock. Just isn’t locking… Still jumps in and out of focus with this mode activated. Not sure where im/the app is going wrong.
Would love to turn on the API setting. But Huawei decided to code the phone to be set at “limited” grrrrr….

OhPervyOne says:

Hello, Justin! I recently obtained a cheapie bluetooth remote shutter control called the AB Shutter. It’s supposed to be for iOS & Android.
Have you ever used a remote shutter control? I looked all thru your videos and I don’t see anything about this subject.
Do you know if my little cheapie device will work with OpenCamera? Or any other?
Please consider making a video on this topic. Maybe even do a review of a couple of products. It would be much appreciated.
Looking forward to it!

TomyTek Outdoors says:

Awesome video. This helped me make my first video for my channel using my phone. Then I eventually bought a DSLR. My phone actually kept over heating while shooting because I kept having to do retakes.

Ralph Dinkelmann says:

fantastic video! Always look at your videos first!
Just also wanted to know…who sings the song in the backround?

Nick Lavallee says:

Great tips. I personally appreciate these videos very very much as I am about to launch my YouTube channel for the first time and I’m quite nervous and new at this. Thanks again

Jason King says:

Fuck 4k… it is overhyped bullshit….1080p and OIS, 60fps and proper exposure+focus is what you need to make a good video and photo…

Praveen Kumar says:

How can I set 4k video in Lenovo vibe k5 plz tell me sir

Anyone know if there is a way to set my Save Folder (for videos and images) onto my External SD card instead of the default Storage on my Smartphone using the Open Camera App?

Muhammad Mustafa Sahaf says:

I accidently zoomed the video while usong open camera.
It is saved now.
Can u tell my how to unzoom the saved video?

Joseph Stott says:

Ummm… why did you tell people who are in AU&UK to select 25fps? What circumstances do you envision somebody recording video on an android device and needing to convert it to PAL? Because I have not seen it happen for about a decade. Even then it was on technology which was itself a decade out of date. :/

Tech Dreamers says:

Good video.

Open camera is the best camera app…

Rosser Runs says:

Thought this video was great. It helped with some of the basics and helped with some background explanations. Really useful to help with my own Channel.

J.R. Regenold says:

Open Camera app won’t shoot video on my Samsung s7 Edge. Press the video button, nothing happens. It works on my older LG
