XML by Dennis



(READ EVERYTHING BELOW BEFORE ASKING SOMETHING)

How to Load XML's?
(XML's are config files that include all the settings tweaked for a device.
Therefore all the configs are based on personal taste which may suit you or not, that's why it's important for you to try them and use whatever you like most.)
Copy the XML file and paste it into:
(GCam 7) Internal Storage > GCam/Configs7
(IF THOSE FOLDERS DON'T EXIST, CREATE THEM)
To Load a XML open GCam, Double Click on a black area around the shutter button, select the XML Downloaded
and then click on "Restore".)

Your Photos come too dark?
Tap the screen when taking a photo and slide up and down the finger to increase/decrease the exposure of your photo.
This applies to Front and Back Camera(s).

CHOOSE BETWEEN HDR+ AND HDR+ENHANCED
HDR aka (High Dynamic Range) increases the Dynamic Range, the difference between details in the darkest parts of the picture and not washing out in the brightest parts.
HDR+ is just a larger range on this and HDR+ Enhanced even larger again. Basically the phone takes a range of pictures and it combines the underexposed bright parts and the overexposed dark parts into one picture.
If you leave it set to Enhanced, it will almost always give you the best effects and image quality as it gives itself a little longer time to bring together the image.
The only times usually to use HDR+ is when your needing quick snaps of a moving object or if you want a faster shutter image.

SWITCH BETWEEN CAMERAS
Load the XML below and click the small dots on the Viewfinder.



Attention that this is only a recommendation

I'm on the fence choosing between mi 10 ultra and the pixel 5. Would be great to see some day and low light pics here. I wonder how the Mi10 ultra handles Gcam as in shutter lag after pressing the button, ability to "tap to focus", how fast it processes pictures, and if there is some photo quality drawbacks as purple grain for instance. The stock mi 10 ultra has too much "butification" and skin smoothening for my liking.

Yep. There are 4 "zooms" to choose from, and each are using the specific lenses (verified by covering the camera with fingers).
Unfortunately the tele lens doesn't go to 120x zoom.
if you really want to zoom that far with gcam, try the Wichaya port; you can use the 5x lens and then set the digital zoom up to 100x more -- recommend not going past 30x digital zoom since the viewfinder doesn't show it, but still that's 150x total

3 Questions:
- Does this mean that the default camera will be replaced with GCam?
- What if I want to delete GCam completely. Can all this be undone?
- Is it better than the Stock Camera?

It's simply a standalone app, it will not replace your system camera app.
You can use one or the other as you see fit and uninstall GCam normally at any point.

From my testing, I can't see it as a direct upgrade over the stock camera app, it may just be that Google's post-processing can produce better results in certain situations.
However, it becomes apparent that GCam doesn't natively support this phone, some features of the stock camera are outright missing, such as: 8k or 960fps video, 120x zoom and more

Personally, I prefer the original stock camera app (from the original chinese ROM).

Just to provide a clear update to available GCam ports and their respective configurations, saving you the need to search through the Telegram GCam group for Mi 10 / Pro / Ultra.

Available ports for the Mi 10 Ultra:
1. Nikita GCam
2. Wichaya GCam

Available configs for the Mi 10 Ultra: see attachments

Both port versions are the latest at the time of writing and they work well with the respective config files (made by Dennis) - tested them out myself.

Thanks for sharing. The quality is very good on closer objects but if I take pictures and focus on a specific object in the distance,I just get blurry image and it takes really long to focus. Other than this, it's working really good
