I thought, since I am getting good at this ROM stuff now, I would check out another ROM I came across on the site http://www.htcsensationroms.com/
Its called "mEMBER's Choice" [sic] and its really nice and stable. even better it has the proper android 4.1.2 camera with the new zoom and panorama features...also the feature that lets you create like a 360deg image - hard to explain. I dont know what its called :-)
Better still for me, I dont get the corrupt preview image when using the camera in portrait.
So far so goo for me :-)
