Since I've been fiddling around with the various cameras all evening, I decided to go ahead and do a head-to-head with all of them that I've used on Illusion see what the community thinks about the results. I tried to be semi-scientific about it, so I kept the lighting conditions the same, same relative framing, and no flash, no firmware tweaks. If the camera had a low-light scene mode, I took an additional photo in that mode as well.

Here are the cameras I am used to test:

Google Camera - Freshest

Motorola Camera 5.0.7.1 & Gallery
(http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/app-motorola-camera-5-0-7-1-material-t3007246)
CyanogenMod Camera 2.0.004 & Gallery
(http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/cyanogenmod/)
Lenovo Super Camera 4.1.250.150112 (APK) & Gallery
(http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2665714)

My Verdict:

Auto Mode (Best to Worst):
1.) Motorola Camera
2.) Lenovo Camera
3.) CyanogenMod Camera
4.) Google Camera
* Pay attention to the purple noise in the darker parts

Night Mode (Best to Worst)
1.) Lenovo Camera
2.) Cyanogen Camera
* Notice the noise is gone for the most part with minor softening

Overall most usable options (Best to Worst):
1.) Lenovo Camera 4.1.250 - Most stable, best low-light w/Night Mode, lack of touch focusing is a shame.
2.) Motorola Camera - Best Auto mode, but lacks a Night Mode & shutter button, options wheel feels buggy to me.
3.) CyanogenMod Camera - Least stable, focus and saving bugs, Great Night mode. Would probably be in the #2 spot if not for a few glitches.
4.) Google Camera - Don't bother unless you have to. It's definitely serviceable, but not a good replacement for the stock LG cam.

What do you folks think?

Request: I love the Illusion launcher, the only thing that keeps me going back to Nova is the icon pack support and especially icon/label editing. Can we expect something similar somewhere down the road? Keep up the great work folks!

This is an absolutely fantastic ROM. Great work folks! My D850 has never been snappier or happier. I grabbed the new CyanogenMod camera update that dropped yesterday and it's gallery app. Wow! the camera is feeling a lot more like stock. Kudos all around.
