Smile [Question] [Idea] Better Camera stock on Moto G

Hi XDA members and developers

I was thinking that the "camera problem" of the moto g maybe it's caused by a too high compression. I mean that any photo have a size of 1 MB, but on the Galaxy s advance is around 3 Mb at photo. So, anyone can mod the stock camera to make it better, for better photos?

As for compression theres nothing we can do, its up to Motorola.

Why not simply replace the camera with another app?

The camera isn`t bad realy considering the camera and sensor but it will never be turned to a top camera though because of the hardware limitations.

Mixture of hardware and software. I've read several reviews that say prost processing causes loss of detail. However this maybe due to the camera without it producing very noisy shots. In an ideal world I'd love to have an option whether or not we want to have our images processed by the software, that heavily.

Compared to the Moto X's response the camera, Moto Gs is nothing which is why I think Moto are reluctant to look into maybe toning it down a little.

You mean software limitations imposed by Motorola, likely to try to keep people from filling up an 8GB Moto G with minimally compressed pictures.

They dont want the Moto G to be to good, or Moto X and Nexus 5 sales will drop too much. Its up to the devs to mod the camera to make it beter.

Megapixel count has almost nothing to do with image quality. In fact, the average lens performs better on lower resolution sensors if their other features like size, light sensitivity etc. are the same. When it comes to image quality, the three major bottlenecks are the lens, the sensor quality and the imaging algorithm. My impression is that the Moto G has an average camera hardware with bad software.

BTW setting the aspect ratio from 16:10 to 4:3 improved the image quality on my device, I guess the software does not just crop the picture but it does some extra filtering too.
