Hi everybody I want to share this mod I made following the next thread:How to increase camera stats
All I made, after some testings, increase almost all values regarding to camera quality(encoder decoder audio video and image), and set it up as high as Note 3. The results are good, as I saw.

10/08/14 v1:
I doubled the audio quality from 128kbs to 256 kbps for all resolutions. High resolution is up to 288kbps
Increased video bitrate
Increased image bitrate
I able support to wmv and wma
I set estero channel to recording for all resolutions
Increased back and front camera values
And many more goodies I don't remember

11/08/14 v1.3:
Increased a little bit more bitrate values according to video
increased a little bit image quality. I think it's the max possible, but I keep trying to increasing it, to see any difference.

14/08/14 v1.5:
Increased audio quality to 320kbps
Re-adjusted values
added different FPS mod versions

--This is version #1 because I didn't increase all the low values. I installed it in my own phone, and everything is working superb.
Next release I will try to set it higher, as S5 and see what happens, if it's working or not. But by now we have achieve something good.--

Here are some previews: here you can see a little differences regarding to standard values vs. increased ones. Using HDR - strong. Stock Note 2 camera! I realize that after made the modifications the pic is more weighty. I hope you can see the difference in the previews, because I have to low the quality to upload it faster, in tinypic. Sorry.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Reboot into recovery
Install Camera Mod
Clear Cache/Dalvik Cache (Just to be safe...)
Reboot!

I didn't test the flashable zip, I only moved the file to "/system/etc" using root explorer and setting permissions, but you tell me.

The idea brings to my head, after testing S5 camera. When you open camera you can see an image super clear and in a higher quality, but when you take a pic, the quality was lower.

TO DEVS: PLEASE BEFORE YOU TAKE ANYTHING, PLEASE ASK ME FOR PERSMISSION. IT TOOK ME A SUNNY DAY TO MAKE IT.

REMEMBER THAT THIS WIILL NOT MAKE ANY MAGIC JAJAJA BUT WE HAVE SOMETHING ALREADY
ENJOY AND HAVE FUN!!

THANKS!

Great work @Austtin
I was for so long looking for a way to get better camera quality, because I don't know why but after the camera firmware update within the 4.3 the camera quality seemed lower than 4.1.2.
It was more of a disaster to take pictures and I can't carry my cameras everywhere.
So thanks a lot.
Wish something like this could be done on AOSP too, the picture quality isn't as good as touchwiz

yeah, I read that it could be placebo. But increasing the bitrate, the image is more weighty. taken the same pic, at the same place and same thing it increase from 2.xx mb to 5.xx mb. So it should increase the quality. The increasing of audio is something real, you can notice the bitrate when you play some sound recorded using camera. And in 480p I increase the (don't remember exactly I should check it) the heigh or width too. In a few days gonna see if I can add support for 4k pics, or if it gives me some forceclose or issue. And also I want to increase the camera values as high as S5, and then test and try again the s5 camera, and how it looks. I think some modification of the camera app, should be done. So this is the beginning.

Thanks Knight, I do my best. Always for help. Not only me if not others. I'm still testing, and I realize that the quality si better so far. Regarding to AOSP, I should check the files involved and what's the camera app too.
