    Just like we are able to chose of we want to keep HDR normal photos, why don't we have the option to go into Settings to enable or disable camera filters.

    I think the camera filters add bulk to the camera app, and I don't want that added feature. I would like to disable it.

    But they still show up though. I'd rather not have all that running in the background while I'm trying to take a quick picture. It just increases loading times.

    Also, I filter them after. Not during. There are so many other apps for that.

    if you set it to "None" nothing is running. Not sure if serious or not...

    When you take a photo with a effect does it save it without the effect and one with the effect?

    It's still in the background though. I don't like that.

    The camera on my iPhone 4S and my dad's iPhone 5 opens faster than it did on iOS 6.

    I highly doubt they are taking up much resources (if any) until you actually push the button and select a filter and even then, the effect is negligible and unnoticeable. You are worrying about nothing.

    I don't think you understand how it works. Setting it to NONE is the same exact thing as this nebulous feature you want to disable it. NONE = disabled. There's nothing running in the background at all...

    What you're saying is the equivalent of wishing you could disable the "Bold" button in a text editor because it's running in the background.

    Well i know when I open Instagram all those filters bog down the app. So you have to pause before actually taking a picture. And even sitting down waiting at some points.

    If you have a problem with Instagram then that's entirely unrelated to this situation. None means it's disabled. It's not doing anything in the background until you actively use it.

    No it isn't. I don't think you understand how filters work or software for that matter.

    Camera app is super fast now on my 5 running the GM. Not only does it load faster but it's way faster taking pictures, filters or not. A photo used to be taken when the button was released (which added additional delay) and is now taken as soon as the button is pressed.

    As a matter of fact, taking a pic is so fast that when I first started using the iOS 7 with my phone on mute, I wasn't sure if I had actually taken the photo so I'd take an extra one!

    Definitely makes me question whether the OP has used the new app or is just complaining about a general lack of flexibility which frustrates them.

    Finally, there's no shortage of awesome camera app replacements (like Camera Awesome) so if you don't dig it, grab something else!
