What is Google Camera (AKA GCam)?
Google Camera is the camera app for the Google Nexus and Google Pixel phones. It is not designed or intended to be run on other phones.
What is HDR+?
HDR+ is Google's proprietary image processing routine. HDR+ employs image stacking to control exposure, and also to preserve details, reduce noise, increase sharpness, etc. It is an all-in-one package.

FAQ GOOGLE CAM
I CAN'T INSTALL X VERSION, WHY?
Make sure you uninstall every other GCam Port on your phone. You can't have both versions installed.
HOW DO YOU SWITCH BETWEEN CAMERAS?
(6.2) Settings > Advanced > Auxiliary Camera and enable the Buttons
HOW DO YOU USE NIGHTSIGHT WITH THE DIFFERENT LENS ?
Select the lens in main mode, then switch to Night Mode
HOW DO YOU USE MANUAL FOCUS (SLIDER) ?
If you want to use it with enhanced HDR+, you need to disable focus tracking. Or else it will only work with regular HDR+.
Also the way it works is you set a focus distance, tap once into the viewfinder, then tap the shutter button.
WHY THE FRONT CAMERA IS 5MP AND BACK CAMERA 12MP ?
Selfie camera uses pixel binning, same as for the main sensor. Since camera2api implementation only delivers a 5MP raw stream (20MP/4 = 5MP because of pixel binning)
GCam can only work with what raw stream the API delivers.
HOW DO YOU TAKE PHOTOS FASTER ?
Enable HDR+ instead of HDR+ Enhanced
DOES GCAM WORK IN AOSP BASED ROMS ?
