Camera51 is a new Android photo app that prides on great point-and-shoot results
Camera51 is a new and promising camera interface app for your Android phone that tries to resolve a pressing issue - how to shoot great photos from the first snap, without tinkering with the settings to no end. The app "detects and analyzes faces, scenes, objects and lines and guides you to the perfect frame in every click," say the creators, and it indeed takes the intelligent auto regimes of various manufacturers to new heights.

The piece features auto-framing, like a professional photographer would do, as well as manual selection, where you tap on the desired object to determine the best exposure settings for it, and can even choose up to three objects in a frame for the best all-around results. Camera51 will also warn you if there are peripheral objects in the frame that may interfere with metering in an undesired way. 

Unfortunately, all that object computing means that you have to have a pretty powerful device for the best, non-laggy results, so lower-end Androids might have issues utilizing the app to its full potential. If we've piqued your interest, give Camera51 a chance from the source link below, and tell us what you think about its results, compared to the stock camera app that arrived with your handset.

Do we really need an app to help you center photos so you can get a "perfect" shot? If you can't center an object on your camera phone, then you really shouldn't be taking pictures.

If you think a perfect shot is the one where your subject is centered, then you should install this app right away because it was made especially for you. Trust me, your photography will improve in ways you have never imagined.

I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, I know how to take GREAT photos. This app is a total waste of time. I know 100% for a FACT that I could take a better picture than you can even if you use this app. I am willing to bet you anything. You wish I didn't know how to take a photo. Cute comment by the way. +1

Just like you have an opinion, so do I. If I feel this is a waste of time, what's it to you? Also no one serves me...

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts.

How does having a Note 3 prove that you can take great photos? How are you even determining the quality of those photos? You know nothing about duartix to be certain that you can take better photos than him/her. Your narcissistic comment is stupid.

The same could be said of him. He said I needed the app. So if he can say that, then so can I. I originally said I didn't need this app, that it was a waste of time. He said no that I would benefit from it. So I challenged the individual. How is that narcissistic & or stupid? Chronos, do you even have a clue what that word means?

@SuperAndroidEvo: So, the only significant answer you could come up with was a pissing contest? Well, you are game. Please surprise us with your wonderful, perfectly centered and world wide acclaimed photography. I'll even give you the benefit of going first: here's two from me, and both were validated by two different communities that can't be said to be insignificant.http://www.dpchallenge.com/image.php?IMAGE_ID=844936 #6 in 68 submissions. and:http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=156348 #2 in 15 submissions I'll be waiting sitting...

I turn on the grid and use the rule of 3s.

Rule of Thirds is not about taking the subject in the center.

So true. It's about depth, framing, rule of thirds... There is so much more than centering. lol

That is if you own an Oppo N1/N1 mini to autofocus using your front camera

Android needs an app like ProShot for Windows Phone(and now iOS) or a professional layout like the Lumia Camera app front and center in its store. I'll have to warm up to Camera FV5 as the closest thing possible to what I'm looking for but I'll give this app some consideration when I switch over to Android.
