Well, that one doesn't leap out as a camera application, and it's painfully slow to load. More accurately, it doesn't seem to load into anything. I haven't done anything or installed anything as far as I can tell, I was expecting that feature to just work straight out of the box. I don't want to be too harsh, because I support the project, but I'm surprised that such a mainstream feature of phones is not more mainstream in presentation and performance.

The Pro didn't really have camera drivers at the release. Only recently was initial camera support merged by the devs and I'm not sure if support in Megapixels was itself merged at all. Would recommend to check if you have an up-to-date installation. Details are also mentioned here: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/PinePhone_P...e_software

Mind that the software is written by the community (in their free and unpaid time), including the drivers. So if there is no power-user taking care of such features then it can take some time until someone implements the features. For the Pro there is currently only a batch sold to (kernel and other low-level areas) mobile developers, so the software is expected to be incomplete at this very early stage.

Sure, I understand, and I bought it to support the project. I thought perhaps camera functionality might be one of the core parts to be sorted out.
