FCamera is great except there is no EXIF and no GPS coordinates, bright side:music plays!

The subject says it all.The low light, HDR and Fcamera apps of FCam (my FCam post) are great but I can't use them because there's no GPS in the EXIF or camera info in the EXIF. So great experimental stuff but not suitable for my daily use.

The final cool thing to report is that it doesn't stop the music player  from playing music unlike the N900 built-in camera app. Wish I had time and a Windoze box to hack the source code to fix the EXIF issues and add GPS.


I was all excited when I read about FCamera until I went to install it and it wanted to uninstall mobilehotspot.  It seems (unsurprisingly) that the kernel modules depend on the stock kernel.  Oh well... I'll have a look at compiling them for my kernel.

In the mean time, not sure if you've played with it at all, but BlessN900 ( claims many of the same features as the FCamera sample apps *but* without the kernel module requirement (aka it'll work on my phone).

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.
