Some users, however, do depend on their phones to double as their camera. For those people, any camera modification that makes things a little better or easier is always a good thing.
Thankfully, many phones in the 2011 Sony Ericsson Xperia Lineup now have a mod to deliver 10 Mbit, 720p video recording thanks to XDA Senior Member hansip87. The mod is available for both ICS and Gingerbread, and should work on most Xperia devices from the Ray to the Pro.
