    This is a touchy subject for me. On 4.0.4 the Google camera trashed my phone. However, on 4.1.2 it works perfectly and may have a little better image quality than the stock camera - purely a subjective claim and not open to debate.

    Give it a try for yourself, don't just take my word for it.

    The jelly bean camera works better on my 412, the stock camera doesn't even attempt to focus, while the new one tries. But I have a defective camera on my certified like new device

    Certified Like New = reload the software, wipe it down with windex and shove it back into a box...

    For rooted users: don't uninstall stock Camera if you're using Glove Mode.

    Try the new KitKat Camera from Nexus 5. Works without / doesn't install gallery.
    Edit: not all features working. Force close on zoom, sphere or panorama.

    I am having issues with TB and my second phone. Does anyone have the stock camera apk?

    I can pull one with titanium. What kind of issue are you having?

    I believe it is tied to some other apk that I have messed with. As I was going through TB debloating and making some system apk s user apk s, the camera uninstalled itself on me. When I try to restore it using a backup TB just hangs on the process. I know its not an isolated incident because the previous phone I had did the same thing. I figured it out afterwards by double tapping the camera button on the lock screen and the phone automatically goes into reboot...

    Thanks for your help

    The Camera is tied to Gallery in pre-KitKat devices.

    Yep, didn't mess with that. I also remember seeing something about glove mode but I didn't mess with that either... I wonder if it is some other G'zOne app I made a user app? Any other ideas? Thanks for the help!

    No ideas. I don't mess with system like that. Only deleted some bloatware.
    To fix just reinstall system partition and do a factory reset.
