I am looking for an Android application that would allow a user with Parkinson to take unblurry pictures. Gratis is better but not necessary.

    Could it be an option to take picture with a timer, and something like a gorilla tripod? I guess the users main problem is shaking?

    To avoid shaking you have three option, as far as I know: 1) tripod, 2) fast shutter times, or 3) multiple exposures and choosing the best. I think timer and tripod is the better option... But let us see if someone has a better solution

    Some camera apps have such a feature indeed IIRC: you push the shutter, and it takes a pic as soon as it's half-way "stable". I just don't remember where I've seen that when building up my corresponding app list. E.g. Open Camera mentions "Option to auto-stabilize so your pictures are perfectly level no matter what". Given it's Almalence behind that one, I'm willing to believe this. Not tried it, though (the feature I mean; the app is good).

    I have used a Sony DSC-TX10 digital camera (not an app) that has an Anti Motion Blur mode. It works amazing well if the subject or photographer are in motion (or both!). I have yet to determine exactly how it works, but I believe it may take several photographs in rapid succession to determine what is signal vs. noise, and then compose a single image consisting of only the signal. Perhaps there is a similar app available, or perhaps people with Parkinson's will be interested in that camera or a newer model. Sep 7, 2015 at 21:40

    Not a software solution, but perhaps worth mentioning: some Android devices have physical self-stabilizing cameras, such as the Nexus 5. (The whole camera moves a millimetre or two, within a mount on the circuit board.) I find it pretty effective, but I am not living with PD.

You need an application that has the following features:

  • Burst mode: takes a series of pictures very quickly
  • Sport or high speed mode: reads pictures very quickly

I recommend the app High-Speed Camera (GIF,Burst):

1. Supports high-speed shots (Up to 40 FPS).

  • Faster than normal DSLR camera.
  • Supports preview or auto save for burst shots.
