Default Issue with camera resolution

I recently got my S4 a couple of weeks ago, and first thing I did was to remove the stock camera app to replace it with the one i was using on my older phone. However, as I tried to take a video this past Saturday, I noticed that the video resolution was just really bad, even though I have the camera app settings to record at the highest resolution available. I went back and downloaded the stock camera app the following day and installed it to see if that could be fixed but nope! I still get the same bad resolution when recording videos. When I just take pictures, there is nothing wrong with the camera resolution, but once I go into recording mode then it just goes down from there. Any help on that, please? If it can't be fixed, then I will need to unroot it and use my warranty on it to get a replacement but I want to see if the issue can be solved before having to go through insurance deductibles and all that stuff :/

Welcome to the forums djlinxxx

I don't have any problems with my video. Its sharp. You might try to Odin back to the stock rom and see if you still have the same problem before you return it. Also, the upcoming update for the Tmo S4 is supposed to have HDR recording from what I understand.

Thank you for the welcome. I will definitely try that method as there are times when I forget my digital camera at home and there are moments that I need to record on video.
Hopefully the issue is a fixable one and not something where the camera is the faulty one which would force me to deal with the insurance. I will be back with the results in about a day or two!
