Sony Xperia Z2 Smart Social Camera and Addons Ported to Xperia Devices Running CM11

It’s often enjoyable to experience another device’s software package on your existing hardware. Because of this, it’s quite common to see applications and even complete ROMs ported from one device to another—and one of the most popular device-specific apps to port is the camera app.

You may recall that not too long ago, we talked about how the Xperia M2’s camera software had been ported for use on other Xperia devices. Now, the Z2’s Smart Social Camera app has been ported for your enjoyment as well. This port, just like the M2 camera port, comes courtesy of Senior Member xperiaz2.

Unlike the previous port, which was compatible with any Xperia device running Jelly Bean or KitKat, this Z2 camera port only works with Xperia devices running CM11. But on the plus side, this port brings you all of the features of the Xperia Z2’s Smart Social Camera app, as well as the latest Addons such as AR effect, background defocus (i.e. bokeh), voice balloon photo, Info-eye, social live, motion shot, and more.

While installing the Z2’s camera app won’t give you its amazing image sensor, you’ll at least get to enjoy all of its software features on your CM11-powered Xperia device. Head over to the ported application thread to get started.
