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 two 6.1 gcam versions installed.
HOW DO YOU SWITCH BETWEEN CAMERAS?
(6.1) Single Click - Camera Switch Button to switch between Regular and Front Camera
Long Press - Camera Switch Button to switch to Ultrawide Lens
Long Press - Photo Preview Button to switch to Telephoto Lens
HOW DO YOU USE NIGHTSIGHT WITH THE DIFFERENT LENS?
Select the lens in main mode, switch to Night Mode, then double tap the Camera Switch Button.
WHY THE FRONT CAMERA IS 4MP AND BACK CAMERA 12MP ?
Selfie camera uses pixel binning, same as for the main sensor. Since camera2api implementation only delivers a 4MP raw stream (16MP/4 = 4MP because of pixel binning)
GCam can only work with what raw stream the API delivers.
Same goes for back cam.
WHICH GCAM IS THE BEST ?
There is no best gcam. There are stable and beta builds which work fine for daily usage, but not the best. There may be some crashes here and there.
WHICH XML IS THE BEST ?
The xmls provided in the folder whose link is given below are the best at the moment.
HOW TO USE XML ?
A link to Celso Azevedo site is given below which clearly explains how to import and export xmls.
WHY COLOURS ARE DULL ??
Sometimes the settings may not be applied by the xmls, and in 6.2 gcam, you need to manually set saturation levels.
Also changing awb can help.
Use the xml.
Use the settings from the given screenshots for 6.2 gcam.
WHY CAMERA CRASHES ?
Changes in libs may cause crashes, in such a case clear app data.
WHY AUX CAMERAS ARE NOT WORKING ?
