You should add that there is a camera module that has orange lense, like mine. Most if not all are bayer modules.

The Defy is delivered with two (as to the date of this post) camera sensors, one with a GREEN lens and one with a RED one.

To identify which camera you have, some capable and friendly members took photos which show the difference:

GREEN lens:

RED lens:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2&postcount=34 by viper. and the last three photos of
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&postcount=10 by zakoo2

So if in doubt, please check your lens before asking.

BTW: With the newly released Gingerbread SBFs the camera will ONLY work on Defys with the RED lens. This might be due to the fact that these releases target a successor device of the Defy AKA DefyPlus, Defy+, MB526. With these leaked releases, the camera on GREEN lens Defys might NEVER work, because the new device will probably not be delivered wit a green lens.

EDIT: As noted below, the lens color alone is not a reliable indicator to identify the camera module. It seems to depend on the camera module, not the lens itself, whether recording works or not. Please read the very informative post 2. The problem, however, only exists with the leaked MotoBlur SBFs (2.3.3, 2.3.4), not CM7 based ROMs.

To find out the module of your phone you can try the method explained by martin.flory on page 4 of this thread:

Logcat dont have any "CameraCommon" match.
How could i determine which lens i have?? I m bit confused b'cz there's one app in market to indentify lens of our defy, it says mine is green but it looks red in outer appearance. Actually i got it replaced, previously i had green lens and had rare pic size above 1mb but now size is around 1.5mb (better quality) under normal light. I mentioned about size b'cz i read some where size picture out of green lense is smaller thn dat of red, still it will be nice if i could some how able read BAYER/ SOC module in catlog.

Info 2 Late on this, but oh well
This is kinda late cause I recently bought a milestone 2 and kinda phased out my defy, but here we go.
I checked my phone when I got it and saw it was a green lense, but logcat shows that its bayer. And, on the MS2Ginger rom, the 720p works good, no forcecloses or anything.
Yay for green bayers!

Dude, download logcat and type in 'Camera', hit the home button and open your app draw and select your camera, hit the home button again and go back into logcat. You should be able to scroll down and see your camera lense listed as either a bayer module or a SOC module.

That app from the market seems bogus. :| I dont trust it.

Hello

Can anyone please help me?

i install the app called DefyLens which says that i have a Red Lens,

And my catlog says:
D/LibCommonCamera( 1231): CameraCommonHal: openCameraHardware()

D/LibCommonCamera( 1231): CameraCommon: Detected BAYER device

So that means that i hace a red Lens and I can record in 720p, am I right?

Sorry if this is a noob question, i am very new with android...

Thanks in advanced
