ICS Camera Mod for the HTC Sensation Makes True 1080p Recording Possible

If you are running Ice Cream Sandwich on your HTC Sensation and are a bit sad by the quality of the photos or videos you take, then have I got a bit of news for you. If you’re wanting to take pictures that are unsurpassed in quality then you should check out the HQ Camera mod.  This mod, created by XDA member NODO-GT, will give you the ability to record uncompressed videos as well as uncompressed audio. He’s also made photos look better too. It also has the following features:

  • 1080p Video Recording in 20mbps!
  • Increased Video Recording Quality
  • Rebuild Camera App with 0 Compression For Better Performance
  • 0 Compression on JPG Images.
  • Increase size cap of Images.
  • Improved Quality of Images.
  • Added Experimental 1250 ISO mode (Thank to krogoth)
This camera app rebuild makes your device capable of shooting videos at 20MB/s. He’s currently working on 720p mode as well as releasing a very high bit rate version for recording video at 40 MB/s. So if you’re interested hit the break below to get your download link. It’s always recommended to check out the forum thread for further details to see if there are quirks or bugs. Once you flash this in recovery turn auto focus off and set sharpness to -1 and you’ll notice a difference. Don’t believe me? Well we have a before and after shot after the break that should help convince you. Enjoy!
