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.
