Android developers are awesome. This time we're happy to report that over at XDA francois.d.dillinger has managed to pull the camera app from Sense 3.0 and its available for you to flash on certain Sense based ROMs for phones including the EVO and MyTouch 4G. Note that since the camera is a system app its a bit more involved than just installing the apk and requires root, but for panoramic photos, it sounds worth it.

As mentioned the big draw here is the ability to take panoramic pictures. If you've ever used a panoramic enabled camera before the idea is the same here. Start the picture, than you have a delay to sweep the camera over an area to capture a wider range than would be possible with a single frame. Obviously this is going to work best for a still image, but there is plenty of fun to be had in taking really trippy pictures too.

So far, the application is only running on Sense ROMs, with milage varying from ROM to ROM. francois.d.dillinger was kind enough to wrap the whole thing up in a zip for you to flash from a custom recovery if manually pushing the file, backing up your old camera app and changing file permissions sounds a wee bit intimidating. Either way you choose to install it though, be sure to post on the comments what kind of crazy stuff you're doing with the camera, and be sure to show your thanks to the dev over on xda!
