[APP]lgCamera[7.1 final] (update 03 October 2018)

Topic was created for testing and feedback to developer (me) my app lgCamera.
I will upload a betta version to this topic.

PS. I will sorry for my bad English, my native language is Russian
PS/2.
Unfortunately Google banned my developer account and removed all my applications from Play market.
I know a reason: my developer site was hacked and used to show porno banner.
I removed all links from all applications to that site. But Google blocked my 4 applications as violation Sexually Explicit Content
I don't understand why they blocked only 4 apps, but did not block other 15.
And after appeals google blocked my developer account.

I will be appreciated to your help:
1. Go to link https://support.google.com/googleplay/contactflow . Choose Applications and game for Android and Problem with downloading or buying
2. Ask supports to unban my developer account and return all apps to play market.

Hi,

lgCamera is awsom, I will be happy to help you with testing. :)

Just a friendly suggestion, it looks better if you put [APP] in front of the thread title?
And which beta version we are going to test?

Thank you very much! :)

I confirm the freeze when switching from camera to camcorder, but it's not constant. First time I see this happen with 6.4 beta 1.
If it does the stock camera also shows a black screen and I need to do a reboot.

Yesterday with the 6.3 pro and free versions I had no problems with switching between the camcorder and camera.

@Dev, is it me or is the zoom improved?

Hi,

Still freeze when switching from camera to camcorder, plus kills camera, need to reboot.

Cheers.

Weird I can switch 20 times between camcorder and camera and there's no problem.
I also made some picture and video for test, no problem.
The stock camera is still functioning as well.

But if the app freezes the stock camera shows a black screen as well and also stucks.

It's necessary to reboot again.

Thank you, I've just tested with 'Scene-Mode Action' on the camcorder with max frame rate 30 enabled,
results in a recorded video with frame rate 28 woehoe !!! :D

All other settings to maximum:

Scene mode: action

* Video resolution 1920x1088
* Video encoder MPEG4
* Video file format MPEG4
* Video bitrate 100Mbit
* Video framerate 30

Video stabilization enabled
Auto rotate video enabled

BTW.
If you want increase FPS than set Scene-mode to Action or Sport.
It will increase FPS(by increasing shutter speed) but picture will be darker for low light-conditions scenes.

H.264 encoder is the best (for video quality and FPS), but if phone supports it (all new phones supports)

About video bitrate and SD class minimal:
100 Mbits = 100/8 =12.5MBytes => 13 (or I think 16 class) minimal
80 Mbits=10MBytes => 10 class (I think 75 Mbit max for 10 class)
60 Mbit => 8 Class
40 Mbit => 6 Class
30 Mbit => 4 class
15 Mbit => 2 class

H.264 makes my screen hang, not the whole app freezes but it hangs during recording.
Even after a fresh reboot.

It's continue, I can't record with H.264 encoding. (100Mbit)

Edit, update:If I lower the bitrate to 50Mbit, it does record again.

Edit, update 2: 60Mbit is max, 75 and 100Mbit hang with H.264 encoding enabled.

H.264 encoder is the best (for video quality and FPS), but if phone supports it (all new phones supports)

100mbit ? are u insane ? bluray discs video does not have that much video bitrate..

I have enabled these setting in the camera app and recorded like that on my HTC One X.
Why don't you try yourself? It's stable, I've tried multiple recordings.

Update:

I just did another recording:

This is what it's saying.

mp4, 23 seconds
size 74,7mb,
1280x720
speed 26892kbps
total bit process 26991kbps
framespeed 28 frames p/s

And I'm not insane, I'm just testing and writing down what I enable and see.

Cool to know my One X is having a higher bitrate as bluray disk :D

Another words about videobitrate.

There are many bitrates in lgCamera settings. But supporting depends on phone capabilites.
I know only one phone, that can record with 75 mbit, it is SGS2 + lates ICS ROM.
HTC One X is limited 25-30 mbit only.
And quality increases slowly than bitrate, I think bitrates 20 mbit and 40 mbit has same quality.

I love this app, so gonna test this version. I have an X10 Mini Pro, still using v5.95. It's the only version that the camcorder works the way it should, I can't even take pictures in that version (Just hangs after I take the picture, doesn't even save it).

From version 6.1 up, touch to focus doesn't work as it should, as it locks focus when recording starts, so I lose the continuous auto focus function. If I use the hardware camera button, the same happens. When I use the onscreen record button, it works great, but if I accidentally touch the screen while recording I lose auto focus capabilities again. Hope this version gets it right.

---------- Post added at 11:50 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:21 AM ----------

Ok, did some quick testing. Approached it as how I would for day to day use. Here are the things I've noticed.

1. After 1st install, changes in settings wont take effect until you restart the app
2. Switching between camera and camcorder works fine, no problems
3. Taking pictures, changing scenes, resolutions, flash work fine. Pictures also save
4. Video playback of videos works again (Did not work for me in 6.3)
5. Hardware camera button still doesn't work for videos (Locks focus, so continuous auto focus doesn't function). This worked fine in 5.95.
6. Hardware camera button for pictures works fine
7. Using onscreen buttons for camera and camcorder works fine. All functions work as they should.
8. Touch to focus works for camera.
9. Touch to focus during recording is gone. If the screen is touched before recording, it focuses but locks focus during recording, so no continuous focus in recording. Worked fine in 5.95
10. Preview while recording videos is a bit laggy, but playback of the videos is smooth

Using X10 Mini Pro with MiniCM7.
Settings:
Video-
semc-continuous 640x480, 30fps h264 MPEG @ 8mbit/s 4800KHz @ 160kbps AAC.
Photo-
5MP Resolution @ 100% quality

All other settings are at default values.

Hope this helped.

I've recorded many videos today with the same settings I mentioned this morning.
Not even once the camera app freezed on me. :)

Scene mode: action

* Video resolution 1920x1080
* Video encoder MPEG4
* Video file format MPEG4
* Video bitrate 100Mbit
* Video framerate 30

Video stabilization enabled
Auto rotate video enabled

>> HERE's a sample video (56,19 mb) I've recorded with lgCamera and uploaded.
It's a very beautifull Dutch windmill, the old windmill is still in working state and the blades are realy turning on the wind so you can see if the framerate is high enough! ;)

The windmill stands in the centre of Amsterdam near where I live.
I wanted to film my wooden shoes as well and the chees I eat but that's getting to personal. :D;)

An this is a sample picture of the video:

Installed on my LG Marquee (Sprint) pictures saved are only green, its just a solid green picture. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. But it doesn't work for me.

Ok thanks for the info,

So these are the best settings I think for maximum resolution, minimum compression and highest framerate?

Scene mode: Action (important!)

* Video resolution 1920x1080
* Video encoder H.264
* Video file format MPEG4
* Video bitrate 60Mbit (maximum possible according to my testing this morning)
* Video framerate 30 (lgCamera can film with 28 frames on my HTC One X)

Also video stabilization and autorotate I've enabled.

Untill now I've recorded with Mpeg4 for encoder and file format.
I will try the H.264 video encoding now with the 60Mbit video bitrate (maybe lower then 60Mbit if it gives problems)

If you like me to test other settings just let me know. :)

The results I will tell you later.
