CyanogenMod Focal, New Camera App From CyanogenMod

Today, CyanogenMod announced a new application for devices running under its custom Android software, namely CyanogenMod Focal, the first new feature to arrive on devices as part of the recently teased Nemesis.

The new camera application comes with a feel similar to that of the stock Android camera, though it does have a variety of customizations on top. The software packs features that Android users should already be accustomed with, including photosphere (called Picsphere) and panorama, as well as the option to snap photos while shooting a video. CyanogenMod Focal comes with a radial menu, offering fast access to options such as Front-Facing camera, Picsphere, Video, Panorama, and Photo, as Android Police reports. However, these are only some of the options that users will find available for them in Focal’s menu, as there are also a variety of other features listed there.

Some of them include Flash mode (Torch, On, Off, Auto), White Balance (Cloudy Outside, Daylight, Fluorescent, Incandescent, Auto), Color Effects (Neon, Sketch, Emboss, Aqua, Whiteboard, Blackboard, Posterize, Sepia, Polarize, Negative, Black and White, Disabled), and Exposure. Additionally, there are options such as Scene Mode (Theater, Sunset, Steady, Sports, Snow, Portrait, Party, Night Portrait, Night, Landscape, HDR, Flowers, Fireworks, Candlelight, Beach, Backlight, Best Shot, Augmented Reality, Auto), ISO Sensitivity, Burst Mode, Timer, and Color Enhancements. CyanogenMod Focal also offers Exposure Measure Mode, and settings such as Widgets Chooser, Auto-Enhancement, Exposure Ring, and Image Size.

Users will be able to easily learn what each option is by long pressing on it, a move that will bring its name up on the screen. For the time being, however, the new mobile application is available only in a beta flavor, and still packs a series of bugs that affect users’ experience with it. However, the CyanogenMod team is said to be working hard on patching issues and adding enhancements to it. Apparently, the team is set to include the new CyanogenMod Focal camera app in nightly builds as soon as this weekend, so that users could enjoy its features and test it intensively. Stay tuned for more on this.
