HTC Sensation HQ Camera Mod Ported to EVO 4G LTE

With applications that help cameras and their features on the rise, it’s no surprise that phone cameras are being frequently modded to perform better.

The mod was ported to the EVO LTE by XDA Forum Member williamford. Not only is the mod available for download, but williamford also explains the method that was used to port it. This could be a good learning experience, as we here at XDA have been encouraging users to learn new things. It could also be handy for ROM developers who want to incorporate it into their ROMs.

Uncapped JPEG File size. Great photo quality.
Uncapped Video, recording 40MBPS.
Beta ISO 1250
