After I just saw, that KitKat's AOSP Gallery is supposed to feature an awesome photo editor
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOs0vLY6FvA
I tried to install the Nexus 5 Camera and Gallery APKs.

Camera: http://goo.gl/VEBuiq
Gallery: http://goo.gl/a2QHTA

Interesting enough, camera and gallery are now separate APKs. I was running the 4.3 versions before, but had to hack the camera so it runs on my i9305, and system libs filtershow_filters, mosaic, and lightcycle were required.
These APKs seem to run without root (?), and I was just able to install them like any other regular APK. I'm not sure though if that would be the case if I hadn't the 4.3 versions installed before.

Bugs:
- Gallery's photo editor FCs (damn)
- Camera's photo sphere does not work in portrait mode (but is fine in landscape)

Improvements:
- Camera's flash finally flashes at the same time the picture is taken. ^^

Questions:
- Is it true that camera and gallery are working out of the box without the need to root and push .so files to /system/lib?
- Can anyone bring the gallery's photo editor to life?

I'm on a Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE (i9305) with rooted stock Android 4.1 and Nexus 4 camera / gallery working before.

OK let's see I have had this camera on my phone since 4.4 dump was up.. I have i9305 running latest cm10.2... Camera needs the libs for panorama and photosphere to work properly. I don't have problem with camera it works perfect... I'll get back to u with gallery

The only problem I found with the camera. I took a picture last night in the dark. The picture took and the flash worked but the picture was pretty much like taking a pic with a phone backlight

Camera still requires libs. You can download it here and copy it to /system/lib (chmod 644). Gallery editor still not working. If anyone knows how to make it work, do update. Thanks.

i9300, SlimBean 4.2.2: Taking Photos, Photosphere (Portrait and Landscape) works (including libs from x86phre3x)
Viewing Photosphere is only possible as photo, the photosphere button shows no reaction

Don't want to trip my KNOX counter on the Note 3 and really want the 4.4 camera to work with photosphere, any chance someone can create an APK to include additions to system/lib?
