For those lucky enough to have a Titan or Radar on hand, you may have noticed a small update today for your 'Camera Modes' app. The update brings it to version 1.5 and the app itself is used for the Panorama and Burst Shot modes which are built into the Camera menu system. Allowing you to take 3 photos and stitch them together, the Panorama mode is something HTC has been adding to all of their phones (Android too), while 'burst' allows you to take rapid shots all by holding down the camera button.
No specific word on changes, unfortunately, as HTC likes to keep that info to themselves. Presumably then this is just some bug fixes or improvements in quality. But hey, if you notice anything, shout out in comments and share. We don't have a link for this one (hidden) so you'll just need to wait till you get the Update notification, which should be very soon.
Thanks to all who sent this in!

Engadget app was also updated, NOW it looks really good and it works with app switching too.
And what about the HTC Mozart, where is its update????
Not sure what the update did but my auto-focus comes out blurry 9 times out of 10 now on my HTC Radar.
I used the Panorama mode on my US Titan before the update and it did not seem to accurately stitch the photos together. After the update, it works perfectly! I never played with the Burst Mode prior to the update, but after the update, it definitely works great on static subjects. I will try to take some photos of moving targets today to test it better.
