Not much to describe :) No more bad photos on our HD2 :)

Disclaimer:
I do it just for fun when I have some free time and some mood :) So don't expect too much.
This app is free (and will allways be free) and for now it will not be available through Marketplace - just because it is not really easy to put it there.

Version 0.6.3 - Mango compatible, Download: View attachment SHCameraApp063.zip
- same as 0.6.2
- full Mango support

Version 0.6.2 - Mango beta1 compatible, Download: View attachment SHCameraApp062.zip
- preview for recorded video doesn't work (I cannot create one of the classes - looks like Mango issues)
- some UI lagging - again Mango issues
- maybe some other bugs
- image may freeze - simply tap the screen

Version 0.6.1 - Nodo, Download: View attachment SHCameraApp061.zip
- app now use native code - this means no way to put it to Marketplace, also app will work only on HTC devices
- preview for recorded video
- normal names for videos
- improved speed of save operation
- fixed problems with pictures rotation (still small issues remain)
- fixed autosave for videos

Known problems:
photo taken in portrait mode will require more time to save comparing with landscape photo.

What's next:
- will try to disable shutter sound (for now - there will be only registry key - look registry tweaks thread)
- propose your features :)

About custom photo/video resolution:
There is no way to have 16:9 photos or video recording in 1080p - application already using all supported resolutions.
And there is no way to add something else - unless someone will modify camera driver.

About Green/Yellow color in photos:
This is a camera driver bug - nothing I can do.

Donate me:
- your "thank you" and your feedback is a donation ;)

Fantastic app! I was so sad when my camera was taking such ugly pictures...there's still lots of room for improvement and added features, but for now, this is AWESOME. Thank you thank you thank you!

Thanks for working on this. Looking forward to future updates (maybe tap to focus, use of hardware button to take shot?) Video will be nice as well. I agree that you should set up a donation. Thanks!

    Ther's a regisrty hack that enable on-screan shutter button. Just hold the button, till camera lock focus, then relase.
    Go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Camera\Settings\, create a key named SoftShutterButton and give it a value of 1. The phone does not need to be restarted.

    I am not getting high resolution pictures, instead of 5MP it produces only 1296 x 972.
    fixed - 0.5.1 attached to the 1st post.

    Edit: Not working in bttf ROM after install sp1 cab, pictures aren't saved..

    I will check it - still cannot promise anything... Some of the other apps are not working as well (TouchXplorer) so this might be difficult to fix.
