heres a good sample of an end product that can be made by dpth. This site uses the 2d created by it to make real 3d xp bliss in 3d but its not blurred in the background like it would be if dpth made a 2d first. By the way dpth has two modes 2d and 3d. http://depthy.me is a website that makes real 3d pictures from 2d. I installed a gcam port to try this also with lense blur.

I'm definitely trying that on my Note 8 as I'm really not keen on the new Pie update to the stock camera, amongst other Pie 'improvements'.
Open Camera is pretty decent, it's one of my faves out of the 40+ I have installed, good image quality and fast to do whatever it is you want out of it.

Haven't tried this one yet. But if it stands out among 40+ apps you have, I think I should give it a go.
You really should. It's a solid and well developed camera app.

Can't remember if I metioned it or not, but Perfectly Clears is awesome, it uses whatever cam you asign to take the pic with, then it tweaks everything and the end result isn't just a saturated mess. Really good bit of software - it also has a slider so you can compare before n after which is very handy.

For photo editing, I usually use Lightroom CC, Snapseed, and VSCO. It's very easy to use, plus it's free! I don't normally use filters for editing. I think it will be a great app for you to achieve a more Instagrammable feed :)

So which camera did you choose? have you decided already?

Still using the stock camera app. I'll probably give open camera a go at some point

Well I find the stock camera app better cause some others look awful as some don't operate correctly or use lame ass effects like when you do video or just camera shooting looks incorrect or just slow capturing
