Low quality

Why does the video turn low quality when I click “save”?

Developer Response ,

To increase the quality of the photos, please tap on the info button on the top left in the camera view, then “Settings” -> “Resolution” -> “High”. If you are still unsatisfied with the result after that, please send me an e-mail from within the app describing to me the issue in more detail, and I’ll be happy to update the app with any necessary modifications.
