Default [Q] Kitkat camera in Omnirom vs Camera in Gapps (vs. CM?)

How does camera in OmniRom 4.4(.2) compare to the camera in 4.4.2 gapps camera, in terms of image/video quality, options, etc?

Is the camera in Omnirom the same as in CM11?

Is this question device specific, by the way?

Is this asking much too, but how camera works in android devices, in a nutshell? I ask that because I'm having problems with whatever camera a put on kitkat rom's, so it must be something on the base rom and on the camera (apk, libs) etc, and I would like to understand a lil' bit more.

One workaround available is to flash CM10.2 (4.3) libs, but I found the image quality specially when zooming worst. Is this just a trick of a mind that doesn't like downgrading?

I don't know about vs. CM camera, but I know that the GApps camera features the closed-source libraries for Photosphere, and I use that because I like my photospheres.

Which gapps are you using, btw? I'm on BaNKs with camera.
But I had to flash CM10.2 libs to stop camera FCs ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2505973 ).

Will you get FC's if you install Aroma gapps in CM11? Last nightlies I was testing both cameras and OmniRom looks better without flash.

I've been using this package with my Omni builds for a few weeks and seen no FC's.
