Hellow fellow forumlings
Disclaimer: This post is about taking VIDEOS. Not about photos.
Since I use Open Camera, the FP2 new Camera is at least useable. Thanks to @robbert.f for the tip back in 2018. Pointing and shooting still takes up to 5 seconds, but hey, I am happy that it works at all.
Now when I take videos I always get the “Bling!” shutter sound at the beginning. Of course, this “Bling!” shutter sound gets recorded first thing in the video. So after having taken some videos, I transfer them with MTP (yawn!) to my Windows PC.
Then I have to sit down and cut the first second out of every single video because they all start with the annoying “Bling!” shutter sound. I guess I could make a compilation with the first second of every video I took for a year and it would go BLING! BLING! BLING! BLING! BLING! …
I checked with the Open Camera forum and found out that this can be be disabled in the app’s settings if the camera supports the Camera2 API. If the setting is not there, the camera does not support it. I do not have that option in my app, so I determined that the FP2 new camera has no support for Camera2 API, at least not the level that’s required to shut off the annoying “Bling!” shutter sound when taking videos.
Soooo… anyone here who uses their FP2 with the new camera and the Open Camera app?
- Do you have the same issue?
- Did you resolve it and if so, how? I am open to alternative app suggestions as well. I have a brwoser and the F-Droid app.
