Thank you for reply. Can you please try with this version on your phone GCam_5.200604.2138build-7.3.021. I find it to work the best on my phone. Only "Google Lens Suggestions" don't work, unfortunately.
If it works on your phone, then there must be some problems with my phone set up probably.
Thanks

Wondering if anyone else has the same issue with OnePlus 9 Pro on both 60 pps or 4k option where the app crashes and no way to open it anymore even if app cache is cleared ? I have to delete and reinstall it. (I am on Lineageos 18.1)
Thanks

Downloaded Ruler_GCam_6.210329.0034build-8.1.101.apk . I was following through mentions on other threads so not sure if this is latest. I am using on Samsung s10 sm-g973u and it seems to be working well. Front cam doesn't work though, as mentioned in post. Using android 11 oneui 3.1

Hello,
I have Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, and there is a variant of GCam by Arnova, who ca make possible to take photo at 48mpx resolution for Mi 10 Ultra ? but for Mi 10 Ultra can be possible to achieve this port with 48 mpx DNG ?

If this will be possible :
1. This port can be with AWB IMX 689 included ? ( I think this is the most accurate awb from Gcam ports ) I used on LG V30 and it have the most calibrated colors on Burial 7.3, Ultra M8..

Thank you !

Hello everyone, o got one question, how to make photos with digital bokeh "like portrait mode" of regular objects without face on shot? Like cup of coffee with blur background?

It's not possible with the modded GCam.

The complete portrait mode is broken, so modders use the front camera portrait mode for the rear too. That's why it only works with faces.

Btw, on some of the newer phones you'll probably be able to have some natural background blur if you're close to the object.

Thanks, now I understand the reason why I can't do it

I'm using a OnePlus 7T with the following :
Snap_GCam_6.210329.0153build-8.1.101.apk
SAP-Arnova-SpecialBeta.xml

Android 11, LineageOS 18.1, rooted, Dora kernal, lsposed, fingerprint spoofing to Pixel 3a to pass safetynet (using 'magiskhide props config' module)

1. Am I using the most appropriate
GCam version and xml?

2. When I load the xml, the option for auto-flash disappears. Is this intentional? Is there a fix?

3. Is it not possible to use 7T's Macro mode?

Hi, i was wondering if there is a fix for samsung galaxy A22 4G. Gcam does show a black screen.

That phone has a Mediatek processor and it's a low end Samsung phone (they often disable the camera2 api), so I'm surprised the app runs at all.

You probably have to use Camera Go/GCam Go, here's 3 versions to test:
GCam Go isn't as good as regular GCam, so even if it works, I don't know if it's an improvement over the stock camera app.

Hi, first install Camera2 API Probe app from Play store and check the Hardware level - if it's Full there's still hope. Since your phone has Mediatek cpu you can try BSG gcams but only if the Hardware level is Full or Level_3 otherwise you won't be able to use gcam.

    Google Camera Port
    by @Arnova8G2

    This is a support thread for apks created by Arnova8G2. Here you'll find basic instructions on how to use this port and how to properly report bugs.

    Compatibility:
    - The camera2 api needs to be enabled;
    - Most versions only work on Snapdragon SoCs, but some work on Kirin and Exynos processors;
    - 64 bit ROMs are a requirement;
    - Doesn't work on phones without RAW support (eg: some Sony devices);
    - Newer versions may work only on new Android versions. Old versions might be better for old Android versions;

    Known issues:
    - FAQs and troubleshooting

    - Slow motion is broken on some phones and Android versions;
    - Some devices have issues with their front cameras (eg: OnePlus 3/3T, 5/5T). You may have to install a fix (if available for your phone) or disable HDR+ on the front camera (setting only available on some apks);
    - Features on new Google Camera versions may take some time to be ported;

    - Your report will be ignored if no logs or a good explanation is provided.
    - Arnova8G2 will do his best to fix bugs, but keep in mind that this is a free port and he also has his personal life.


    Example of a report:
    @Arnova8G2 Portrait mode crashes on my OnePlus 3 running LineageOS 15.1 (Android 8.1). I'm using "GCam_Pixel3Mod_1.1_build.6.1.013.apk".
    To reproduce, open the app, go to portrait mode using the front camera, and take a picture.
    Here's the crash log: <google drive link>
