Default [Q] Xperia U Camera

Dear all,

We XU owners must be aware that the camera of XU is nice when we all were using GB or any GB based rom but as the device got updated to ICS camera quality degraded. Camera was very slow while focusing and yellowish picture were coming same is with JB Roms. Can someone explain what can be the problem. if it is kernel related problem is there any kernel which is having good camera drivers and runs on JB or Kitkat Rom

thanx

Yeah i noticed it too, hardware is there but it seems sony didnt worked on the firmware side of the camera on ICS. Picture quality depends a lot upon image processing software.

I hope someeone could work on that.

Who man?? Not a single person has developed a rom on which camera works perfectly. Hope Sony has hidden something which was in GB but forgot to include in ICS.cuz in JB and Kitkat Camera performing the same. Might be some tweak by Sony for GB

In Stock ICS Roms problem is there.Jelly Bean there is a quite improvement (not much). The camera is just awesome in GB but its okay with JB n Kitkat.
