Google Camera for LG G7 ThinQ

As requested here and in order to avoid multiple thread about this.



Below is all the fully working/partially working GCam in LG G7 order by date:
Source: https://www.celsoazevedo.com

Recommended GCam:

Oreo:
Night sight doesn't work properly, but has wide camera switch.

Others:


Pie:
Night sight works at these versions, but has no wide camera switch. Much faster.

If you wanted to test more, since GCam gradually improves overtime (thanks to the devs), feel free to visit the source link above. Also, if you found a working GCam, you can reply on this thread and post the link so that the others can test it.

Somebody in a different G7 thread posted a Cstark Gcam port that has both the normal wide angle and front facing all in one Gcam port. if I can find it I'll link it here

Hello @Arnova8G2, I personally have the device and I am willing to give some time for the development as G7 doesn't have enough devs. I already have the tools, I know programming, but the only problem is I don't know where to start. Have tried looking at the log but it seems to be hard for me to trace it inside smali. The app closes immediately.

My objective is to make your GCam port or other's dev port to make it work in our device. I don't plan to add settings and such (but I can add WIDE angle switch).

APK use: N6PbsgfixPortrait-GoogleCamera-Pixel2Mod-Arnova8G2-V8.2.apk (See log)

Thank you very much. I hope you can help me and the G7 community.

LG G7 has one of the best dimensions. Not too big, not too small. Right in between the smaller flagships (~70cm) and the bigger ones (~75cm). But it is so sad to see that this section here for LG G7 is like dead. I was considering to buy it and then flash the google camera (and maybe another ROM). But apparently the community is quite small. What a pity.

When I use this version, I can't take pictures with the 'rear' camera. I press the button but it won't snap anything.
I can record video fine.
I can take pictures with the "selfie" front camera.

But why not with the rear one? It just refuses to take a picture.
Have you set the HDR+ icon to On instead of Auto mode? That usually does the trick.

There is a fu24 version which is based on cstark27 t2 version. It just adds a bit more options.

Have you toyed with the Resampling Method option under ''Experimental''? I have and there doesn't seem to be any change for me here. The long press switching camera add on works like a charm though :D

In addition to the changes in the setting already mentioned by Skullpluggery, I would recommend the following - speacially when using Cstark's...4.2t version:

Leave the HDR+ ON and not HDR+ Auto on main camera screen
Exposure time: Super Slow (this should reduce the noise greatly in many different indoor situations)
Frame count: Lowest (unfortunately any other upper frame count will render the shutter speed awkwardly slow)
Model: Maintain Nexus 6, but Pixel II XL (Marlin) also seems to work fine
Developer options tab - camera.diet_burst: check, camcoder.h265: check, camcoder.fastswitch: check

One more thing, not sure if it's only me, but HDR+ is not working for the selfie camera on any of the 3 suggested mods.

Just to be clear, this is just what worked for me - LG G7 running International OpenSource Northern Europe official ROM.

Hi,
I tried setting HDR to on and it still didn't take a picture with the rear camera :(
if i spam pressed the picture button, it would just get greyed out until i closed and reopened the app :(
I can try again but I'm really frustrated and stressed out right now with too many problems not relating to the phone.

see my post above. Maybe that can help - model set to Nexus 6 vs Pixel II XL.
try clearing the data of the app first on apps management and then work on the configs.
