Update- Upon further investigation I found a newer version on XDA. I am attaching a flashable zip in the post. Thanks to this guy - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=306

IMP - By default the app takes pictures in 5MP resolution. If you want to take pictures in 8MP resolution, just disable 16:9 mode in settings.

Just like all other Xperia SP users, I was completely dissappointed with the phone's horrible camera. Upon further investigation I realised that the issue was due to the unpolished and half-baked stock camera app and therefore some users posted Xperia M's camera app which performed better.

After some little searching on the internet, I found Moto X's camera apk.
The app does wonders on our device and performs better than Stock camera or google camera app, especially in terms of auto-focus department.
So, I suggest everyone to try it out. I am attaching the apk to the post.

Works on stock as well as custom ROMS.

NOTE - Produces great results while taking pictures of 'texts and documents' where stock app fails terribly.

Bugs - Not all features are working (eg HDR mode). But the app does a pretty decent job.

Yes. The zip doesn't remove your stock gallery. You can delete motorola gallery using root explorer.
