Lightbulb ** Avoid Focus Stuttering in Low Light for "SCEF02" Users **

** Avoid Focus Stuttering in Low Light for "SCEF02" Users **

Hello guys, i'm too one of the SCEF02 users who suffered from low-light focusing for over a year now

we all tried everything we could, like using SIEG02 firmware that would give away our focusing-flash and video light
or setting exposure to -4 and creating a dark video!

i always knew this trick would work but we hadn't this option in stock video recorder or lgcamera app

the answer is lowering the ISO!

i have found a software from market that u can set iso for video recording, its called: "CameraPro (Camera X)" (not free but it worth it)
in v2.27 of this software the hd & full-hd video recording of GSII is fixed and now we can use it as our primary video recording software

in iso 100 and 200 u would Never have Low-Light Stuttering and its not dark while recording its just a bit draker even less than setting exposure from 0 to -1

i tested it last night and i've got Smooth video and Quick focusing like filming in day!

all u have to do is to install and open the software & :

1. go to settings (first tab)
2. find this option: "Show unsupported controls" (now u have control over ISO)
3. go to video tab (8th tab) and in "video profile" and select "720p 1280x720"
4. scroll down and select "Enable video expert mode"
5. set other parameters as you like, audio channels, audio bitrate, video bitrate and many more
6. click back and in main screen select settings icon to change ISO
7. set it to "200"

It's Done! now u are ready to capture non-stuttering videos in low-light


any question about software or sharing your ideas are welcome

Hope u enjoy it...

ISO values comparison:

Recording Speed: 100>200~1250~Movie>>400>>>800

Recording Lightness: 800>400>1250>200~Movie>>100

Auto mode is unpredictable

It is indeed much better than lgcamera but stuttering is still there every now and then mate.
At least for me.. It's a curse :P

This method is well known for months... and is not true solution for SCEF02 problems. You can minimize shuttering effects but on the end you get darker video. So you decrease video quality on your own changing one issue for another.

There was no, is no and will be not any real solution for this problem except full camera module change.
Brutal life.
