I'm Chinese. One of the motorola product manager is active in a third part forum. However, when the users post some issue or bugs that he doesn't like, he will drag them into blacklist. What a shame for him to be a manager!

I also told him this phone's main lense use sun-glasses, because the Light Transmission is too low, just like aperture f3.4. And then he dragged me to blacklist.

Someday he found I post an excellent config for gcam, he dragged me out and download the config, and then left some rude words comments, and then dragged me blacklist again. wtf?
Wooow this is incredible! Can you please share which forum is this so that we know what we are dealing with?

Here is the Telegram post I downloaded it from https://t.me/gcamlm/249?single. It is "LMC release" group, you can find Hasli (8.4 and previous) and Helena 8.2 versions there.

R11 version (lite too) supports aux lenses but you need to enable it in options. You can rename them as well. Everything works so far and I am sticking with this version for now.

I completely agree about stock moto cam - photos look good for a second and then postprocessing ruins everything. And it is quite anoying that they pretend (in Lenovo forums) that there is nothing wrong with their processing...

Hi Milica84,
Appreciate all your good work done in getting the best gcam for this phone so far. Cheers.

As per you earlier post, I downloaded the "LMC 8.4 R11 Lite" from the link mentioned above, and as my usual habit, I would first scan any apk on Virus Total website before installing. Turns out R11 is flagged with "Symantec Mobile Insight - AppRisk:Generisk".

And just to be sure, I scanned the latest "R12 Fix 1" version and it was instead flagged with this: "Trustlook Android.PUA.DebugKey"

Are these false positives from VT? Or are there other sources can we get R11 from?

Hey, thanks for the info.
I do not scan apks coming from (hopefully) good developers so I do not know whether it is a false positive or an actual threat.

The only other place I know that aggregates gcam versions is https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-suggested/
There you can see that Hasli has R9 the latest version https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-hasli/
But this site is known not to have the most recent versions... Now I am interested in what your website will say about R9 from celsoazevedo :) Let me know if you test it.

Cheers,
Milica

Hi I did not test this, but I read somewhere that there are options in Developer settings for correcting this, and that it shoud be set to value 1 or 2. See which options in the screenshot. If you test it and it works, let us know 😉

Hi Milica,

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, I am still on version R9 and so far Virus Total's scan results shows no malware detected. Will try out other version when I have the time.

LMC 8.4 R11 Lite would be almost perfect i that wideangle lense correction worked. And maybe get that camera restart lense change off, but that not really issue.

    Thanks very much. It's a shame Motorola don't seem to care at all. All you see always is the same copy and paste answers. It might as well be a Chinese company that never respond. Just because they respond doesn't mean they have listened or helped at all...

    They use Chinese to communicate. Can you understand?

    www.coolapk.com

    you should install its app to communicate.
    And the product manager's ID is "bonata", the same ID in the Chinese official forum.

    New config file for Edge 20 Pro. I keep on updating since I am making the file optimized to different lighting conditions.

    What GCam Mod application are you using?
    I'm using this:

    But if you meant what I use to update the config file, you just need to open Gcam and there is a settings under 'Modules'.
    You need to manually update the config per lens (front, ultrawide, main and periscope).

    I had several variants installed until now, but by far the best and most functional is the last iteration of nikita gcam 8.3. I will try to put the link here. (video in zoom cam still not working)

    @peterdoherty : Did you also try some config with it? If yes, can you please let me know which one worked the best? I tried the Nikita one as well, but the photos are a little less bright by default...
    Just some tweeks by trial and error. I think the darkness was caused by enabling auto sunset or auto twilight (i don't remember the name exactly, it was a little icon above the camera selector toggle). As soon as i disable it the pics were considerably brighter.
    Also I enabled and renamed the wide and zoom camera, set auto night mode. And that's about it.

    My updated config for Edge 20 Pro.
    - well balanced exposure for all cameras
    - reduced sharpness
    - tweaked HDR and Expo Map to LUT

    What you see in the viewfinder is the exact image you expect in post processing.
