Revamp the LG Optimus 2X Camera Experience

Occasionally, a stock application or two doesn’t quite live up to the expectations of its end users. Whether it be an email application that isn’t themed to the rest of the operating system, mismatched overscroll glow colors, or simply an application that isn’t performing performing as well as it could, there is always room for improvement. For those carrying the LG Optimus 2x, you now have the ability to make said improvement in at least one application.

XDA Senior Member |ErosizeD| presents BR CameraMOD, which takes the stock camera and camcorder experience and gives it a reavamp. To start, the camera is now capable of taking higher quality pictures, and the camcorder can churn out a higher frame rate. How much higher depends on the resolution, but the stock 9 Mbps bitrate cap  has now been replaced with 36 Mbps.

Higher Bitrates from 9 to 36mbps ( im trying to set 40mbps but the camera is weird )

While the modification is already quite an improvement over the stock camera and camcorder, that is not all |ErosizeD| has planned. In future releases, the bitrate should be boosted to 40 instead of 36, allowing for even higher quality and less blurry motion. However, the mod is not without its bugs. The current bugs reported so far include:

Sometimes the FPS went down to 24 or less when recording at ultra high bitrates.
Some kind of artifacts when zooming ( only sometimes ).
The phone may freeze if you dont have a fast micro SD ( when writing the video )
Some resolutions havent adjusted bitrate.

So if you can get beyond the issues, this is a fantastic improvement over the stock offering and should be taken advantage of.

For additional information, download links, discussion and more, check out the BR CameraMOD thread. As usual, don’t forget to make a backup prior to installation in case you need to revert to the stock camera app.
