Sensation Camera Super Mod Ported to the HTC Vivid
Not long ago, we brought you a write up for a HTC Sensation camera mod that took the Sensation camera and improved it in almost every conceivable way. It was easy to install, easy to revert from if there were problems, and it just made using the camera a better experience for everyone. Well, there’s good news for HTC Vivid users. They can now install the same mod and make their cameras just as awesome.
XDA Senior Member zacgoesrawr has brought the camera app to the HTC Vivid in what looks to be a pretty complete port, which should bring all of the awesome without any problems. The mod comes in the same flashable update.zip format as the original. There are two available versions for users to choose from. One is for a specific ROM—namely the Inquisition ROM—and then a second should be compatible with all Sense 3.6 ROMs. For those who don’t remember, here’s a few of the key features of the mod itself:
Uncapped JPEG File size. Great photo quality.
Uncapped Video, recording 40MBPS.
Beta ISO 1250
Further increases in quality from before.
While smartphone cameras won’t replace a good Digital SLR, they’re “good enough” for most typical users who only need to take a quick snapshots. And since most of the time, lugging around a large camera is impractical, any modification to make your phone’s camera better benefits everyone.

On computers, the process has gotten relatively simpler over time, with Microsoft and Apple typically supporting the notion....
