I have a OnePlus 5T I'm using this version;


When I take a picture, the pic preview button on the far right, when I click it, it does nothing.

Also on his Config page;


I thought I had to download the config with the APK listed at the top; Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.2.211013

When I installed 'Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.2.211013.2305_Snap' in /GCAM/Configs8 there isn't anything.

Anywhere to report bugs?

THANKS

I have Samsung Galaxy M40 device. By default Samsung hasn't exposed all camera sensor but only 8mp is exposed. Could anyone guide me on, what all needs to be done (or can be done) to expose all camera IDs for 3rd party Apps?

I found few ways like- modifying build.prop, applying magix module. But I doubt that exposing camera IDs cant be this simple otherwise many would have done that and happily used GCam's full capabilities. Am I right or wrong?

Please help.
Thanks

Also I had read that Arnova8G2 was working with Samsung devs on a workaround which would expose all camera IDs to 3rd party Apps. Is there any update on that? Do we have any other workaround for Samsung devices to expose all camera IDs?

Thanks

Is it always the case that OEM would/can only expose the binned resolution to 3rd party Apps but not the original sensor? For example- If original camera sensor is 32mp, OEM would/can expose 8mp only. Same for 48mp, only 12mp would be exposed.

@shaggyskunk @Dayuser Could you please answer my questions?

Yes it's a rule with the exception of Asus (which decided to leave unbinned RAW resolution). You're stuck with it until a dev who has the phone comes up with a mod, which is probably never

Ok, If I have to build such a mod, could you tell me what all possible solutions are there? I found these two - modifying build.prop, applying magix module, which I feel wont work as its too simple and many would have done this otherwise.
I looked into few similar modes, they modify/replaces some .so files in the system using the mod.

By the way you have replied to my similar question on Telegram channel too. Thanks!

That's a question for someone with a little more experience in modding. If it was so easy we would have it in every phone. In fact I don't think any samsung phone has such a mod

With reference to v8.1.101-v6.2, I understood that this toggle allows us to capture max res image by the sensor.
But What is the meaning/purpose of Only use super resolution JPEG, Enable pixelbinning, False duration and Sensor mode index settings?

Can anyone please explain?

Thanks!

Hey guys! I'm using a Ulefone Power Armor 18T and when I install Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.1.211009.2048.apk (https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-arnova8G2/f/dl1/) my viewfinder is not working for everything except videos. It just shows a black screen.

It's really weird. I've tried various versions of gcam, but nothing appears to be working. I've also tried several different configs (for example these - https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/configs-arnova-09/).

Has anyone had such a problem?

EDIT:
Mentioning @Arnova8G2

Sorry if it was asked already but for Samsung S21 FE there is a version working?

For the variant with the Exynos SoC, it seems that GCam 8.4 from "BigKaka" works well. You need to use one of the "samsung" package names (the 3rd or 4th apk from the page):

- AGC8.4.300_V9.2_fix2

And you must load this config (the configs folder, which you may have to create manually, is: /Download/AGC.8.4/configs/ ):

- v0.2_S21FE_NMPS.agc

The config part is important because apparently you'll have some crashes when switching cameras with the default settings.

I don't know if this also works on variant with the Snapdragon SoC. If it doesn't, you probably can use BSG's 8.6 (again, samsung packages, the 4th or 5th from that page).

Edit: Also check the XDA thread for your phone: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/gcam-on-galaxy-s21fe.4396589/

That's a shame and also a bit weird as Snapdragon is usually better then Exynos for GCam.

I don't have the phone, but... crazy idea... have you tried Open Camera? At least the shutter lag should be good, not sure about the quality.

The quality on open camera is pretty bad compared to gcam or samsung camera. But if I'm fast I can take a photo with gcam until the viewfinder freeze. With gcam version 8.1 if I disable hdr I can take photos. It's pretty weird this phone, I didn't have that much shutter lag in years from a phone

    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;

    - Phone, ROM, any fixes installed;
    - Name of the apk you're using;
    - Screenshots or video recordings of the bug if you're able to;
    - A logcat if there's a crash (How to save a logcat: video guide, advanced guide);

    - Mention @Arnova8G2 username;

    - 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>
