Alright some of you have seen my contributions in the magisk thread by aer0zer0 but i seem to update it a lot and seem to spam the thread up, so i decided to make a seperate thread where i can post updates and edits.

//:
Q:Reason for using this over arnovas and cstarks gcams?

A:These settings are made especially for essentials IMX 258 and use more vibrant colors as seen in samples, plus the noise settings are manually tweaked by me and keep getting better as i tinker with them more, as well as the gcams provided by arnova and cstark use custom set blacklevel fix which is not an good idea, tolyan's uses dynamic black level which adjusts the tint values by ISO settings as said when checking the Fix Black level option.
://

Grab my compiled version with preset here- 5.3 https://mega.nz/#!qk4ggYqC!Pb3gY6DW0...JckLZYBPnZ8q9I

6.1 Preset build based on MGC_6.1.021_V1d-Advances_test2.apkhttps://drive.google.com/file/d/1QV8...ew?usp=sharing

Old method below
we are using tolyans builds

Slow Motion does not appear to be working with this. Crashes app.

Still need the magisk mod, but you can turn it off.

Thx 4 reply.

Will keep using SloMo on GoogleCamera-Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V8.1.apk for time being. Was hoping to find 240fps (120fps only on this Arnova).

Huh, this might make me finally install Magisk.

Just for your information, you might have missed that, another developer going by the name of ArtZ did something similar, just for a regular apk (https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/a...mera/dev-artz/). He developed for the LG G6 which shares the IMX 258 with the PH-1 and very much focused on color reproduction. I've been using his latest apk since its release and always returned to it when testing other ones in between since the color reproduction is much better in HDR+ enhanced compared to other apks, his settings might be of interest to you as well in your development.

Edit: after testing tolyans build with your settings I'm definitely impressed by the speed and noise settings, but color reproduction is still significantly better with the black level settings introduced by ArtZ. The color shift can best be seen when taking a low light picture with HDR+ and HDR+ enhanced, the latter will often have a green tint. ArtZ talked a bit about his settings in this post: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...postcount=1568. Integrating a PH-1 specific color fix into a Gcam apk could very well be worth the work.
