The camera is such an important feature of mobile phones these days that many people make their choice regarding phones after seeing the phone's camera results. However, what good is the camera if the Camera app you are using doesn't take full benefit of the quality camera your phone has to offer? All Android phones come with a built-in camera app. This app is simple to use but hardly offers the range of features a camera app like Camera MX has to offer. Camera MX is a product of MAGIX and is a widely popular choice of Android users.
Camera MX offers a number of cool features that make it fantastic as a camera app. The app starts off with the phone's back camera as the default selection. You can switch between the front and back cameras easily while you can also use the phone's flash and turn on the phone's front and back torch while clicking pictures with the app. The app offers the opportunity of taking pictures as well as videos with the camera app. You can add in live effects in the picture you are taking with a number of effects available. You can use the color splash to change the color orientation of your shot while you can turn on the negative filter to make the picture spooky if needed. There are over six such effects and filters available to be used during pictures and videos. The cool thing is that you can change filters during the video recording so as to make your videos more dynamic as well.
There are excellent camera features that help in taking the right shot as well. With the grid feature, you can enable the gridlines on the camera so that you can further align your shot before taking them. You can also set the photo resolution between 1:1, 16:9 and 4:3 ratios as well. You can also define the type of setting in which the picture is being taken or the video is being recorded for the camera app to help you out however possible. You can choose between Steady Photo, Selfie, Action, Night and Party with each scene enabling features that help in taking the right picture.
There are also a number of cool features which are hardly found in other camera apps. You can record a time-lapse video using around 30 pictures to make the time lapse video. The results are cool, to say the least. The app also offers a Live Shot feature through which you can take a picture and record a video at the same time. There is also a cool 'Shoot the Past' feature where the app takes pictures for a duration before you actually took the shot. This means that you can choose between a number of shots and decide whichever picture looks the best.
Camera MX also comes with some solid picture and video editors as well. You will have 14 editing tools including trimming the video and changing saturation etc. for your videos with the video editor. There are 15 picture editing tools offered in the picture editor including horizontal straightening and mirroring effects.
