Sabre merge method
Sabre is a merge method created by Google that improves photo quality on some modes. Some call it "super resolution" because of the sharpness/detail improvements. It's used by Google for Night Sight, but some GCam mods also use it for zoomed photos and HDR+ Enhanced. Works with the RAW10 format (other RAW formats may result in black photos).

DCI-P3
Some versions come with a DCI-P3 option. On phones with displays that support DCI-P3, it should result in photos with more vibrant colours.
To learn more about this colour space, check the wikipedia page about DCI-P3.

ZSL = zero shooting lag
means you won't get camera freeze after taking a HDR+ auto shoot. It is build-in the Google Camera 4.2 and only works on Pixel phones.

I started to collect information about the settings but as you see it's still on going ... but will be continued by time.
to all: more input from members appreciated so we maybe end up with a full description of what you can do and what is the benefit of it

but also depends on if it's worth working on it because of new features. To my knowledge there weren't any, so no new version.

But yes, hope everybody is doing fine! That's most important in those times.

Guys, what the "Super Res Zoom Always On" does? I'm using a Pixel 2 XL and using a tripod but there's no difference between on and off.

Take a look at https://www.google.com/amp/s/9to5goo...-res-zoom/amp/

Super res zoom takes advantage of hand shaking to get more detail. Especially when you zoom.

Hey @cstark27, hope you are well have been keeping safe amongst this pandemic. first of all wanted to thank you for this app, great job at this, no doubt. Have been using it for a while on my OG Pixel XL and had brought back new life into that phone. Have recently switched to a Pixel 3 and first thing I did was obviously download this app, and was happy to see the re-enable smart burst option as it is miles better than Top Shot that replaced it, however, I have never been able to get it working.

Device: Pixel 3
Version: Android 10 (March Security patch); Build: QQ2A.200305.002
Camera PX Version: Latest build v4.3 Based on Google Camera 7.2.014

Issue: When enable smart burst is selected, the video recording when pressing and holding down does go away but it is replaced by just a normal photo. I mean, no matter how long I hold down the shutter, it only takes 1 image, instead of a burst.
How am I able to reproduce it: Just press and hold shutter, it only takes 1 image when smart burst is enabled

Have I cleared app data and left settings alone: Yes
Does the issue still happen: Yes
Does the issue still happen with a certain setting enable or disabled: Yes

What Magisk Modules are enabled: None

Please find the attached logcat i took of the event. I hope you find the time to have a look at this issue and find a fix for it.
Thank you very much!
Kind regards,
yashlg97

Just found out how to get much, much better low light selfie portraits with the Pixel 3a (old camera PX version) , if the results are extremely dark and noisy:
-HDR+ enhanced for portraits must be turned on
-exposure time should be 1/4s
-Iso should be 3200 or 6400 in order to get a bright photo
-exposure compensation could help possibly

The difference is huge.
