Want to see it in action? No screenshot - it looks exactly the same as on TW ROMs - but here's a video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYX4PSVDiIU Apologies for the terrible quality, but it's hard to film a phone with the Nexus 7's front camera, and I couldn't find a decent screen capture app :<
Port for Android 4.3
Beta version NOW AVAILABLE, click here for details + download: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=135
It doesn't work as well as the 4.2.2 version - in particular, video recording is 100% broken, even in the AOSP camera - but you can still try it out if you don't mind this!
Port for Android 4.2.2
Working/Non-Working Features List:
Front and back cameras
Auto & Macro focus modes
White Balance options
Gallery shortcut (uses AOSP Gallery)
Possibly Working, depending on kernel:
(These features require that the mediaserver process can write to /sdcard (for burst shot/best face) and /data (for panorama). The only way to change this is using a modified kernel with an init.rc which gives it that access. In my experience, with Googy-Max kernel, Panorama works but the other two don't. Your mileage may vary.)
Not Working, may be fixed later:
Automatic mDNIe / screen brightness adjustment
Not Working, unlikely to be fixed:
Weather/city photo tagging in the media database (what's this used for exactly?)
Buddy Photo Share
External SD card
This patch is ONLY compatible with AOSP-based 4.2.2 ROMs running on the GT-I9300 and GT-I9300T; the international models of the Galaxy S3 (Exynos chip, no LTE)

This patch has only been tested on RootBox 4.1. Please let me know if you have trouble using it on any other ROM!
This is an experimental patch, and you install it at your own risk! I am not responsible for anything that occurs as a result of this. Always make backups.
You need a recovery that allows you to install .zip files; most likely CWM or TWRP. But you probably already have one of these if you're running AOSP on this phone
1. Boot into recovery mode: turn the phone off, hold down VolumeUp+Home and then press the power button
2. Make a Nandroid backup (not obligatory, but recommended in case something goes wrong!)
3. Flash the camera mod zip
4. Wipe the Cache and Dalvik Cache - just in case
Hope you enjoy it! Now go out and take some awesome photos
