ok.. I just tried it... I took pics in my living room under florescant lighting and I can't tell that its better than the stock..... but the features far outweigh the stock and make the whole app worth while. 1. Its faster coming up. 2. Faster deleting, and faster between pics.. seems to handle memory better, or maybe uses more and therefore is faster. 3. has instant edit abilities "fairly full featured too".. not as dramatic as Picsay pro but not bad in a pinch and nice to not have to go to another app just to crop. 4. Zoom now goes to 6X 5. I like the feature to turn the shutter sound off. 6. Can set to auto save or not.... 7. Auto focus is fast and quick to release to allow the next pic. 8. Auto focus appears to be excellent at close range 9. Color reproduction or "white balance" seems perfect and skin colors are excellent. All in all, a drastic improvement over the stock app and worth the money. I have not as of yet found out how to change the iso or grainyness setting for low light pictures ...this would be a nice feature as the stock camera likes to err on the side of preventing blur and keeping the shutter speed fast at the expense of grainy shots. Not sure what features this hardware affords... but the more the better.... we can aways have auto settings for those who don't want to tinker. I see no reason why we get shortsheeted on features if the hardware will do it.
