Infact, why we get these low mb pictures?

Becouse we can't force 100% jpg on ICS yet.

They are in fact only around 95-99%

Increasing bitrate in media profiles will have no effect, there is a bitrate limit in camera apk. I have allready decompiled it and removed limit. There is also a kernel limitation . Of course we can't remove it becouse of lack of sources.

small size pictures don't mean that they are worse than big pictures. Depending on conditions of light... if u are taking picture of sun set and u have a lot of shadows and "dark" objects in front of sunset that would be low detail on good quality picture so mb is low. but if u take picture on sunny day in some park an u have clear trees and grass and a lot of details it would bu bigger in MB. So jpg functioning like that , and it is in no connection with camera quality. So more details, more sharp picture, more MB, and opposite :)

Auto enhance OFF!!! mandatory for good pictures.
Sharpen -1 is OK but I like to keep it stock.

I took hundreds of pictures wih Sensation and very few of them are above 5 mb and those pictures are SENSATIONAL good quality, it all depends on lght....

Best pictures taken with ARHD 3.6.11 on android 2.3.5 and moded variable bitrate camera/video also.

I will try this mod and report back. Please include revert to stock !!!

Is this HTC cameea tweak or AOSP ICS?

Can't you just mod media_profiles.xml? :p it takes 2 minutes...

This would be a great mod to get working with a 20 meg or higher bitrate for 720p or 1080p. We had this in Sense 3.5 just from editing the media_profiles.xml but like you mentioned no longer that easy.

Can you share what file you edited in the HTCcamera.apk to remove
the bitrate limit?

Who can we ask to take a look at the Kernel to remove the Bitrate limitation?

It wasn't just xml in sense 3.5.

Use apk tool to decompile it. You will love all those .smali files xD

    Okay if NODO-GT doesnt say anything about it, i can start working on my own. :)

    hey, check your PM.

    Meanwhile I'll give small Update what to expect in next Version.

    • Icreased Bitrate in 1080p Upto 40mbps!
    • Increased Framerate performance (stability)
    • Gallery App Link(button) Fix
    • Sligthly Costumized UI to fit ICS more (Maybe postponed to next version)

    7
    yes it is.
    I'm running virtuous inquisition 4 myself

    Alright, I fixed the Gallery link problem with the HQ mod for Virtuous Inquisition. This still has the low-compression + ISO + 20Mbps stuff, but the Gallery button now works.

    This is for Virtuous Inquisition only.

    Credits to G23 Mr Gimp for his Gallery link fix, and NODO-GT for his original work.

    Enjoy.
