Hey,

I know this is not a huge thread or the most useful ever, but i didn't wanna swarm threads with potentially irrelevant info.

But anyways, the camera improvements are great. You used to have your frame focused and the shutter came too long after the focus so you often had blurry pictures. Now you actually notice that it refocuses at the exact moment of the shutter (obviously "exact moment" is somewhat an expression). That alone improves the quality by a ton and most likely what they refer to when saying they fixed "stabjlity".

So after you flash to 4.0.4 don't fear to use your camera anymore!

I assume all the camera quality improvements will be present in the latest CM9 nightly based on Android 4.0.4 as well?

Thanks for this. I wonder if there's anything in the update that'll improve the graininess of the pics.

I use AOKP 29, and any AOSP based 4.0.4 should have similar core improvements. So yes, your assumption is right

The graininess does also seem to have major improvements. Overall the quality is A1. I dont wanna risk it and say its like iphone pictures but it sure as hell is one step closer.

This just got me excited...I use my camera a lot. I was going to hold off on upgrading to AOKP 4.0.4 build until they added everything back in but maybe I will make the jump quicker. Post some bad lit pictures up in the picture thread please and specify it is on 4.0.4 please. I am sure a lot of people would be interested to see these...

The yellowish issue when using the flash seems to be gone too.

After testing further I have to say my only complaint is that the shutter speed is not constant, as in sometimes it will take the picture instantly and sometimes it will lag a little (not because of focus)

I still wish there was a way to batch delete photos.

Long press on a photo while in the Gallery and then you can choose which ones you want to delete and delete them!
