BlackBerry improves the PRIV camera, again

Users will have the ability to enter a mode with advanced manual controls giving them access to capture settings such as: shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, focus, white balance and exposure (EV) compensation

I am very impressed with the updates that BlackBerry puts out for the PRIV. This is an important one for the camera. Controlling the camera settings, especially white balance and focus is paramount for shooting video; unfortunately, manual mode is only available for photos, for now. And a manual focus is a must have if you try to shoot at night. There is more in store, including physical keyboard support for the camera.What a lovely update.

BlackBerry is also updating the keyboard and other apps provided for the PRIV. Starting June 6th they will roll out a maintenance update on top of Marshmallow, also bringing the device up to June security fix level.

Impressive. BlackBerry is doing all the right things.

And I also thought that I would be saying this, but I am considering this for my better half ;)

Ralph, it is an PK camera and better than Passport shooter. But there are better smartphone cameras out there.
