Camera Mod for Xperia Ray Brings Fast Capture, Better Sound, and Smoother Video
Smartphone cameras have come a long way—from being mere spec entries in the mid 2000s, to the serious point-and-shoot competitors of today. While most smartphones today come equipped with pretty decent cameras for point-and-shoot purposes, there is often room for improvement. If you’ve got a Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray and want to add features like fast photo capture and smooth HD video recording with high quality stereo sound, we’ve got a mod for you.
XDA Senior Member Rizal Lovins has taken MooDeD Camera ICS for Xperia Arc by XDA Senior Member jader13254 and modified it for the Xperia Ray, adding a few improvements in the process. The mod is meant for Ice Cream Sandwich only, and has been tested to be fully working on the official 4.0.4 ICS ROM for the device.
The mod can be flashed from a custom recovery. After installation, be sure to clear data on the camera app. For more information, head over to the forum thread.

This year, cardboard returned...
