Open Camera Update
- New icon for switching between multiple cameras (note not all devices expose multiple cameras to 3rd party apps). For old behaviour disable Settings/On screen GUI/”Multiple cameras icon”.
- Aperture control (on supported devices, Camera2 only). Flash now supported for manual ISO/exposure. More custom video profiles. Improvements for log profiles (note this suggests behaviour of those profiles has changed). Auto-level feature now shows on-screen rectangle.
- Bug fixes and other improvements.
