You can follow the life of the application on facebook and there is an existing and frequently updated documentation.
188.8.131.52 fixed only some minor bugs. E.g.: zoom bar will not disappear during video recording.
Important upgrades will receive minor version number. E.g.: next 1.0.7
Currently I'm working on motion activation for video mode and noise reduction for photo mode (when using camera at low light). I'm making progress on motion activation part of the software, so hopefully there will be an update on next week. Noise reduction has to wait a couple of week because BB is releasing BB10. I've heard that rumour they are upgrading Playbook with OS 10.0 too. Unfortunately my noise reduction library is a little bit slow for OS 2.1.0 but it is working really good on OS 10.0

Loving the app, it has replaced the native camera for me, the fact that it can take pictures faster than the native camera is enough reason to buy this, you dont need to worry about moving the playbook when you take the photo like in the native camera where there is a noticeable delay between when you press the button to take the picture and when the picture is taken, which results often in blurry images.

I can assure you I will continue developing this app. Thank you for supporting me.
@BB-Bmore: Motion activation is easy task but keeping camera in working state while screen stay off...currently it is not feasible. But nothing is impossible (or possimpible) so let me do some research.

Yeah that was my concern, nevertheless the app already has many more capabilities than the stock camera and it's great that your working on bringing even more. Thanks! Would it be possible to video record with filters applied? That would be a nice feature as well.

After coming across the application, may you consider the following suggestion. The trial version is limited in functionality, ads, and evaluation period. The application should be either restricted or with a fixed timeline but with complete functionality for satisfactory evaluation of the product. The rational is similar to when a potential customer goes to a car dealer and is interested in road testing their sports car to get a feel for its features and limits. If the dealer chooses to remove the turbo charger, leave only the first gear, and restrict you to driving around their parking lot, customers would not report a positive experience. The dealer lets you take it for a spin once or twice and expects some type of impression from kicking the tires. The dealer should not be expected to let the customer keep taking the sports car for another dozen or so road tests, so the customer should be prepared to buy it if they are satisfied. The trial application should be either restricted in capabilities which the customer accepts or it supports 100% capabilities for a limited period but not both. The latter would be preferable to avoid buyers remorse should they find something that does not meet their expectations.

I, for one, disagree with the above post. I think that the demo version gives potential buyers a pretty good feel for the apps capabilities, and further modification of the demo is unnecessary. If you can't tell whether you want this app from the demo, then you don't want the app. Plus, I'd prefer that you spend your time updating the full version rather than tweaking the demo version.

The metaphor of car vendor is great but how many times you buy a car in your life? Maximum 3-4 times in an average human lifetime (sounds like a first world problem). And you are right when you are expecting to test the full feature set for that amount of money. But in the case of this application the price is equal to a Chinese piece of junk that people orders every day or every hour. And hopefully this software is a little bit better than that junk.
So currently I'm waiting for the denial of the trial version. It will be removed from the market and I'm facing with the consequences that will cause less download for the paid version and negative feedback.
I'm apologizing for the people who downloaded the free/trial version.

Good news: time lapse video recording will be added in the next release (1.0.8) where you can customize the frame/sec. It will produce an mp4 file with 25fps playback.
Bad news: several patch is still waiting in the Blackberry review queue for weeks (almost a month) and they do nothing.
Here are 2 time lapse video created with Advanced Camera 1.0.8 without post processing:

Great news indeed! Looking forward to it. I guess all these crappy apps showing up in the new release section daily is the reason its so backed up.
Will there eventually be a motion sensor added or is that not doable at the moment? Thanks!

Re: Advanced Camera
Problem with the app:
I use the camera in aspect 16:9 and sometimes the button to take the picture doesn't respond, has anyone experienced this? I have also noticed that the app heats my playbook a lot, the app keeps running even when minimize and the app behaviour is set on paused.

Experimental motion sensor is already added in 1.0.7 but that is still waiting in the review queue (for more than a month). But as I mentioned I can't control the standby time (camera will shut-down in standby mode) and the backlight off feature.
Take picture doesn't respond at all? Do you need to restart the application to get working again?
Because there is a built in lock that is disabling shutter button until the picture is saved on disk.
I know that the app keeps running while minimized and it will be fixed asap. That heating problem I think it is a common playbook problem, isn't it?
