How to take pictures using Samsung Galaxy A5 with always on flashlight

The original Samsung Camera apps doesn't have the constant flashlight functionality. The instant flash doesn't help much when taking pictures in the dark or low lighting as it only works when shooting. As a result the picture taken either does not have a clear cut focus and poor ambiance.

So the camera need a constant flashlight to shoot picture in the dark - in doing that we can adjust the focus and the zoom distance at will without guessing. The result of the picture taken will be more clearer beside having a sense of intentional focus. Apart from that it also reveals the in-depth detail of the object taken especially when it is shot from a close range.

To solve the flashlight problem we need another camera application that comes with the constant flashlight features. There are plenty of FREE Android camera apps from the Google Play Store and these are to name a few that I've tried.

1. Camera Flash Free - very simple primitive camera functionality comes with zoom and always on flash light. The lighting feature is very good and it can reveal in-depth detail of an object if taken from close range. Disadvantage of this apps it's just too plain simple without any other functionality other than the ads at the bottom.

2. Camera 360 Ultimate - This is quite good free camera apps for android comes with all sort of functionality to take pictures in several modes. However despite of the advance feature the lightning function is not as good as the Camera Flash Free. In addition the apps resource usage is quite heavy for the processor and memory where it tend to lag when using it. So personally i don't recommend to use the Camera360 Ultimate.

You can download more of them in Google Play Store

See the difference when pictures are taken under different lighting conditions. This shows how important to have good lighting in taking pictures otherwise the output is not satisfactory.

  1. Low lighting condition - blurry (not enough light)
  2. Instant flash light - Excessive and un-focus picture because no chance to select which angle to shoot
  3. Normal fluorescent light - too much white
  4. Constant always on flashlight - able to focus on the object angle
  5. Normal day light - have shadows and have limited ways to get correct angle
  6. Shadow - under fluorescent light there is a chance of getting shadow when your table or object facing against the light
