Samsung S6 Edge camera is fab

super fast, still not as consistent as iPhone

And the bloatware also makes it slower. Disable the S6's bloatware and you are left with a great camera that can be triggered easily and consistently and super quickly by double clicking the physical button. Bravo Samsung! Now please fix the rest of your really bad software by deleting most of it!

Tired of the Fuji Android app

why do I always have to manually connect it to my Android Phone?

What I really want is: open source RAW camera app on Firefox OS

pretty please ?

But in the meantime I'll settle for an open source RAW camera app that I can send pull requests to on iOS or Android or heck for the 3 of us who use Windows Phones, Windows Phone. (and if I can't get that Google fund Camera FV-5 and Manual app in the meantime :-) )
