How did you managed to get raw with 10x lens? Or how did you managed to switch to 10x in GCam at all?
A Snapdragon benefit. I believe the Exynos model can do it too but requires root and replacing some library files. It'll be pretty awesome if Samsung gives access to the telephotos via Pro mode natively though.

Here some more Exynos animals and such :D

2 of the Ultra wide shots were done with the gCam v8 since it manages to pull out more detail.

Hello babyboy3265 ,
can you please tell me with which Gcam port exactly you took the photos, and which settings you use?
The Ultra wide cam sometimes pruduces not really good photos.
Thank you very much

Thank you very much, I will try it. I am currently using this version, which has some special settings for the Exynos variant.

Can you send us the link to this wichaya version please?
This is the website, where you can get it
You can take one of these , doesn't matter which, all should work.
In settings, you can chose the wide and ultrawide cam to set a lens noise profile for the s21 ultra exynos and it works realy good.
Front cams i couldn't get to work.

Nice, thanks for all the extra info buddy! Could you possibly do a few comparison photos to see the difference?

What would you like to see, a comparison between the two gcam mods or gcam and stock?
I will do tomorrow , in Germany it's getting late.
A comparison between the two gCams would be nice! Some pics in nightmode and normal. Ultrawide and Main lens would make a clear distinction as to which gCam is the best one for our EU phones. This is a question no-one seems to have answered by now!!!

German tester bro, thanks.

Nah, there's really no best GCam or comparison because unlike stock, you can make GCam do almost whatever you want. Most GCam without touching any setting should like almost identical since it's mostly using Google's defaults (some GCam modders do add their own tweaks, but the big developers like Arnova and BSG leave their's stock). The biggest distinguishing factors between various GCam builds are their compatibility (some specifically adds certain functions to specific phones like 8k video, full unbinned resolution, etc) and tweaking options (BSG has the most right now with a billion different options in the lib patcher).

I was never able to install this version of GCam on my phone, I thought it doesn't work with Exynos. I'm getting this error

If you have Exynos, you don't need to use the Samsung package since that's for devices that supports telephoto RAW. Just use the regular one and you should have no issues installing. Oh and the links above are for the older version, Wichaya's v1.1 has more options.

    The brighter unedited photo looks a bit better buddy...
    Haha really?
    I think I made the pic too dark then

    This unedited one looks good. 10x, night mode, handheld. Exynos.

    Just got the G998BXXU3AUE1

    What's different?
    You are a month+ late bud. We no longer remember what AUE1 made better. Definitely some stuff is different though.

    Enjoy.

    So can someone post some pics from the AUG4 update white the rest of us are waiting for it?

    I have read that it fixes the camera to a much higher extent than previous updates... Want to know if it is true. Some before and after pics would be absolutely great as well!!!!

    Now a much better macro pic of my eye. There was a bright light source in front of me, so I had to take exposure down, improve details, etc in snapseed. Anyway, awesome details. Macro camera is amazing!

    I don't play with post processing much these days, but AD Photoshop/LR on the mobile is surprisingly good, this is going to be printed to acrylic plate at somepoint.

    51020901102_33a0501883_c_d.jpg


    The dynamic range of the S21U really is quite something, even jpgs allows for post processing to the exact temperature 'look' you want.

    The depth and general tone of pictures the S21 U is able to capture really did use to be only possible on 'proper' camera systems, even the x10 lens produces half decent efforts in post.

    Add in the fact the entire work flow is possible on the phone, so no peeking on the back of a LCD camera screen, no faff with uploading to a laptop, no LR library to manage, no need to worry about backup due to the cloud, am pretty sure I can also send these file direct to Photobox/Snapfish or similar for large format printing all from the phone.......

    From a purely a photography point of view, the S21 U is outstanding, there is no other way to put it.
