Modern camera app focused on privacy and security with QR & barcode scanning.
What is Secure Camera?
This is a modern camera app focused on privacy and security. It includes modes for capturing images, videos and QR / barcode scanning along with additional modes based on CameraX vendor extensions (Portrait, HDR, Night Sight, Face Retouch and Auto) on devices where they're available.
Modes are displayed as tabs at the bottom of the screen. You can switch between modes using the tab interface or by swiping left/right anywhere on the screen. The arrow button at the top opens the settings panel and you can close it by pressing anywhere outside the settings panel. You can also swipe down to open the settings and swipe up to close it.
The app has an in-app gallery and video player for images/videos taken with it. It currently opens an external editor activity for the edit action.
Zooming via pinch to zoom or the zoom slider will automatically make use of the wide angle and telephoto cameras on Pixels and other devices supporting it. It will become more broadly supported over time.
By default, continuous auto focus, auto exposure and auto white balance are used across the whole scene. Tapping to focus will switch to auto focus, auto exposure and auto white balance based on that location. The focus timeout setting determines the timeout before it switches back the default mode. The exposure compensation slider on the left allows manually tuning exposure and will automatically adjust shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Further configuration / tuning will be provided in the future.
Camera permission is the only one that's required. Images and videos are stored via the Media Store API so media/storage permissions aren't required. The Microphone permission is needed for video recording by default but not when including audio is disabled. Location permission is only needed if you explicitly enabling location tagging, which is an experimental feature.
By default, EXIF metadata is stripped for captured images and only includes the orientation.
