    Open the Camera app, swipe down from the top of the screen until 'Clear Image' appears. If, for whatever reason, you don't see it, tap the circle adjacent to the Settings icon and make sure 'Clear Image' is selected amongst the mode settings then try again with the swiping to select 'Clear Image' mode.

    It's suppose to work similar to a panorama, in where it stitches images together, but it's suppose to stitch together the same image for a "clear" picture. Kinda like HDR in a way.

    The trick (at least for me) is to hold the camera very steady while the images are being taken. The end result is actually better than HDR in some cases. You will definitely notice that your pictures are sharper and with far less noise than even the HDR mode. Here are some pictures I just took with Auto, HDR, and Clear Image (in that order). Not the best pictures but they give you a fair idea of what Clear Image does for your photos.

    After playing around with the settings and taking a lot of sample pictures, I agree. I felt more satisfied with the Clear Image setting results than with those resulting from the HDR mode. I found the app would capture the image quicker with Clear Image as well.

    Is the subject moving (shouldn't be)? It should work perfectly fine just taking the picture.

    I am not sure what I am missing--I see no ClearImage mode (It cycles through Auto, Sepia, etc...) in my camera app, nor do I see it in the "magic wand" menu that enables/disables modes. Am I using the right app? It is "Camera" from com.cyngn.cameranext version 2.0.004, and I have 44S.

    I was in a similar boat. Running 44S and clear image missing from camera settings menu. The fix I found was to clear the data for the camera application and reboot the phone.
