    Post Google Camera with working portrait mode V8.2

    Hi, anybody looking for a camera with image quality near GCam, might try my app designed for galaxy s7: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nz.android.sharpcameralite

    Post Google Camera with working portrait mode V8.2

    To be honest I have no spare time for this project at the moment because of real life job. Regarding your phone I think you should test a few camera apps from play store, which use camera2 api, and if you find a bug, report it to samsung. All the bugs in gcam you reported are because of bugs in...

    For me Pixel config with enhanced hdr+ is just about the same as nexus config as they use the same non zsl method. Slow shutter 2x definitely works in pixel config with enhanced hdr. Underexposure set to 0% will degrade dynamic range to about the level of zsl hdr+ which I agree is still decent...

    Here is some more shutter modes added. Slow shutter X2 goes to 1/5 secs. X4 and X8 go even slower but they are completely unstable, I get a camera error after a few shots. Slow motion is fixed for S7 (I might have broke the app for other devices completely by doing this), turn off live hdr if in...

    It does indeed work, but completely instable for me, I always get an unrecoverable camera error after a few long exposure shots. Unfortunately this is because of setting exposure time beyond driver limit. I get the same error if I modify my own code.

    I have tried to force shutter speed outside allowed range. Indeed exif data showed 1/2 secs. But: -in reality much faster shutter speed was used based on total shot duration. Shot was taken much faster than with 1/10 sec shutter. -pic looked bad -my camera screwed up totally, I had to restart.

    scam is not using camera2 api. Samsung could change this limit with no effort, somebody just needs to ask them and hope the best:) They probably don't care much about camera2 api implementation because stock cam is not based on it.

    That's the motion photo thingy. Why do you wait for it to become hot?:) I always kill the app asap if something goes wrong.

    I have seen such thing too once. It's probably a bug in Google's denoise algorithm.

    Post Google Camera with working portrait mode V8.2

    That's probably because motion photos is enabled on your device, do you have oreo? On s7 nougat motion photos isn't enabled, if I force enable it, I get an instant freeze in preview. No improvement for sure v8.2 vs. v8.

    OP updated with more stable version. Also pixel config non-hdr front cam crashes are fixed (that's why it is 8.2 instead of 8.1).

    I have seen some unexplainable random crashes too. Not this often though. I will post some test versions in which I revert some changes so you can test it. EDIT: did you try clear data or clean install? It helped me somewhat.

    Live hdr is samsung's way of doing hdr. It affects preview as well as final picture rougly the same way. Google's HDR technology is much more advanced but it cannot be done in real time. If you enable live hdr in gcam, preview will be like in stock app, but in final image gcam will add it's own...

    Maybe a logcat would help, but if it crashes within a c++ lib or cameraserver there is no chance really. Is S8 nougat ok with pixel 2017 config?

    I would rather lower Luma denoise params. In a fairly well lit room up to ISO 200 "Custom Luma denoise good light" set to 0.05 gave me very sharp results on back cam with ZSL mode. If it doesn't help, decrease medium light or low light values too. Enable "Apply custom denoise params" and...

    Enter settings, force close, after that correct settings will be applied. I assume that you haven't touched any of the Advanced front cam settings. The problem is that the camera is initialized before default settings are applied.

    V8 V8 is out. Please read changelog and bug list in OP. If you find the new Pixel config too unstable, feel free to switch back to Nexus config, it should work as before.

    Post Google Camera with working portrait mode V8.2

    I think Pixel 2017 config will be the main one with ZSL hdr+ replacing the rather useless auto hdr+ mode. I planned to release it today, but just found a little bug with tap to focus... Other than this stuff like advanced denoise settings, save portrait shots to same folder etc.

    You can control dynamic range. Take a photo of a light bulb or sky with the sun in sight and you will see. Works only in HDR+, non ZSL mode. 100% is default. Lower values cause less dynamic range and rainbow effect.

    Until now I haven't found anything that could control that.

    You have to restart because the number of buffers can only be set at the launch of the app according to my knowledge. Unfortunately this is one of the cases when a log is not very helpful. Looks like something is wrong with facedetection. You would have to attach a smali debugger and step...

    Mainly default settings that are set after "clear data". Exceptions currently: slow shutter enabled, metering mode set to center weighted, hdr+ parameters set to high. HDR+ always on. Sometimes, mainly if I increase shutter speed, I increase denoise on back cam to 130-140%, but ususally leave it...

    It works just fine with hdr+ turned on, so force it on. But I can confirm without hdr it turns off too early.

    That's it. And please stop asking me to port to x and y devices that I have only ever seen in a Vodafone shop. I concentrate all my efforts to make this app as good as possible on a single model. I hope you understand that my spare time is limited too.

    slow shutter: tries to select lowest iso at the cost of slower shutter api2: default camera2 api shutter speed and iso. If you select this, the HDR mechanism of gcam cannot work properly. I only left it in the list because it reduces rainbow effect significantly (however dynamic range suffers)...

    Post Google Camera with working portrait mode V8.2

    It's still there. BTW the HDR+ switch (off/auto/on) available on back cam options bar has an effect on front cam as well, so HDR+ for front cam can be forced on/off with that too.

    Post Google Camera with working portrait mode V8.2

    I don't think so unfortunately. The correction you see in stock app is not available in camera2 api. And Google doesn't seem to make any shape correction during processing because there are no parameters to control it.

    Don't touch any of the new settings that came with v5, and it will be the same. HDR+ parameters set to Default, High or Very High.

    HDR+ doesn't work on your phone, so your photos don't provide a fair comparison.

    Post Google Camera with working portrait mode V8.2

    I don't work for samsung so I have no idea, but it perhaps does something similar what gcam does. Underexpose by letting in less light, then digitally increase the brightness of parts which became too dark. This process will produce noise of course. Especially if you do it twice. There are some...

    Under fluorescent lighting select 50 or 60hz (depends on country which one) Otherwise choose Controlled by Gcam. Above 100% values will probably increase rainbow problem.... Default is a good compromise I think.

    Post Google Camera with working portrait mode V8.2

    I think I might know what is causing this behaviour, try with Default "HDR+ parameters" setting for now.

    If you turn off live hdr and set metering mode to center weighted you should get exactly the same result as v4.

    What is your denoise setting? If it is not 100%, EXIF data will contain incorrect ISO. Manual iso: well, possible. Quite obviously HDR+ didn't activate in that case. Try forcing it on.

    Let me guess you used front cam in good light with "HDR+ Front camera fix" enabled.... otherwise it works. If you have a device other than S7, maybe you should try without front cam fix.

    On S7 I can see the effect in preview, although it is nowhere near as effective as google's HDR+. But as I said it brings too much noise when combined with HDR+. But it could be still useful for front cam in good light for S7 users because HDR+ isn't increasing dynamic range really because of a...

    You will be able to tune that in the next release. detection: On S7 exynos samsung"s image processing does an awful job on faces. Gcam is much better.
