Prior to the update, I found the camera performance to be quite poor. It took a couple seconds usually to auto-focus and get a shot. Very frustrating. I purchased CameraZoom FX, which may have been slightly better, but not a huge improvement in my opinion.
So post-update, I found the performance to be much faster with the stock camera app. But now, just following an update to CameraZoom FX, I'm finding that the otherwise much more sophisticated CameraZoom FX app is painfully slow to focus, regardless of the focus setting I use. It takes well in excess of 2 seconds from the time I click a shot until it snaps. Compare this to the stock app, which now focuses quickly (less than quarter of a second, on average). CameraZoom FX seems a bit quicker in good light, but it's still much slower than stock.
Curious if anyone sees a similar pattern.
