We think that the Samsung Galaxy S III has a nice camera as it is with the 8-megapixel resolution and decent optics. However, that’s not saying we would like to see better resolution and higher image quality for still shots and video. If you want more than the smartphone will offer by default, custom ROM developer hyperX has released a new mod for the smartphone that boosts video recording quality.
The superfine mod for the smartphone will boost 1080p full HD video recording to 30 Mbit in superfine mode and adds in support for 192-kbit audio as well. Along with the high-end mode, there’s also 24 Mbit fine mode and 19 Mbit normal mode. The mod also gets the ability to record 19 Mbit superfine 720p resolution video along with 15 Mbit fine and 10 Mbit normal mode.
All the different video recording modes include the same 192 kbit audio recording. The future update hopes to add 60 fps capture to all resolutions. Other little things that you get with the tweak applied include the ability to start the camera while in a call and a shortcut to take photos during video recording using the volume up/down button. HyperX’s hack also changes the default action that won’t allow the camera app to load if the battery is under 15% charged.
