As some of you know the Google Camera app with HDR On is great to shot low light pictures. However OP5 users as myself aren’t as lucky when using the modded Google Camera app as as users from other devices.
With OP5 we have bugs that seem to be applicable only to our case: touch to focus not working along HDR & dots pattern issue visible when you zoom in certain pictures shot with the modded camera.

Therefore I would like to ask for a favor to the first OP5T owners:
  1. Download and install this modded camera app (I pick this version because it’s simple without tons of settings)
  2. Test if touch to focus work when HDR is enabled and if the picture is saved (do not confuse touch to focus with touch to change main point of exposure)
  3. Shot some pictures with low light
  4. Feedback in this thread

If someone want to try one of the last versions of the app, then you can download it from here (shout out to Kisakuku).

The last modded version as per today 21st November is "MGC_5.1.016_7.0+C2API_v.1.3a_AllinOne.apk", but as I said the new new versions contain lot of settings that make it really time consuming to find the appropriate ones for each device.

That’s why in the OP I posted just the last version of Google Camera app with the minimum edits needed to get the HDR feature working on any Android 7.1.1 / Snapdragon 835 phones.

Yeah I dl "MGC_5.1.016_7.0+C2API_v.1.3a_AllinOne.apk"
No working focus touch
The picture is saved
They both seem pretty bad but I'm not an expert.

Are those 2 pictures that you uploaded shot with HDR On? Which settings are you using?
In OP5 depending on the combination of settings used in the app touch to focus can work or not work, but usually it’s hit and miss so it can stop working randomly.

Do you notice small dots when you zoom in on the pictures shot with GoogleCam and HDR On?

I just would like to know if OP5T has the same bugs with the ported GoogleCam has the same bugs that we have on OP5.

To make it more clear on which version and settings to use:

Please test this most recent version: https://drive.google.com/open?id=149...jbivKF5PiWtkT9

with these settings from the screenshots: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...postcount=1215

In "Advanced" settings, enable HDR+ control right at the top!

Afterwards restart the camera app (completely swipe it away from recent apps), restart it and set the HDR+ toggle to "HDR+ Enhanced".


It is also important to get some shots in daylight, as the OP5 had issues with a constantly visible dot pattern in light areas.
Also please do not upload the shots directly through the forum, as they get downsampled and compressed. Use an imagehoster like abload.de for example, or even Google Photos.

Of course it is even better to additionally post a similar shot you took with the stock camera app, so we get a better picture of how this mod works on the OP5T.

Thanks for testing!

Posting a couple of pics taken from the 5T using the default camera app vs the latest GCMod app with the recommended settings. Just a single light source in the room. I'll try in the daylight tomorrow

Seems gcam's got a tendency towards a cooler white balance..same thing happens on the Essential phone. Which would you say best matches reality, color-wise?

I don't know about color but the OP is suffering from pretty major loss in detail. There's a couple of spots of light creeping through that's clearly visible in the GCam but not so much in the OP. The OP is also suffering from a lot of graininess... the top left corner next to the suitcase is a good example.
