Camera Xpera S photo quality

Hi there,

i have a Xperia S with Stock Android 4.0 installed.
The phone has a good camera, but the photos are very highly compressed.
e.g. a photo with 4912x1080px is only 282KB in size.
Sony knows about the problem, but it does not look as if it will be fixed sonn.

My question:
Is there a photo app for Android with all the cool ICS-features (Sweep-Panorama and so on...)
in which i can set the JPEG compression quality by myself?

282 KB that seems a bit small, I'm getting between 2-3 MB

Info 2 other examples

normal shots:
4000x3000 shot at broad daylight: 1,74MB
4000x3000 at night: 2,05MB
4000x2250 daylight: 2,29MB

sweep panorama:
4912x1080: 376KB
4912x1080: 244KB

the normal shot qualitiy is ok, but not good.
The quality could be so much better, if i can set the jpeg quality higher / manually.

Use PROCAPTURE, its noise reducing mode is good enough, but a bit difficult to use...

My panorama's are around 480kb, normal 12mp pics are 2-3mb like others which is indeed over / aggressively compressed it's quite a dynamic rate in terms of whats in the pic determines its size.
I have tried the camera ics+ app which has quality settings but it doesn't seem to compress any less even on 'ultra' mode which suggests the compression is done early on in the software loops

is there anyway to lose the compression, maybe sony can do it if they want..the 12mp snapper is not up to the performance when in low lights and the flash (camera flash) is really weak, some workaround for the flash ?? maybe?? i am really happy using UCAM , as the Stock camera app is really buggy and 3 out of 5 shots comes out blurred , but still the flash is really weak and causes red eye problems in low light conditons

Using camera ics the file sizes of my images are significantly higher.
