yes, thats the old (but gold) SACHISK_MIXED xml with LMC x9s. still using this lovely config made by SachiSK as main cam.

SACHISK = AWB ON, UPSCALLING OFF, HDR+,
KAIRU = AWB OFF, UPSCALLING OFF, HDR+, EXPOSURE COMPENSATION ON
BOTH WITH FOCUS TRACKING DISABLED

I corrected for the colour difference between the 3 by turning AWB off for Kairu and AGC

Again, Kairu and AGC are so similar, AGC less noise, but Kairu reveals certain surface detail like the log at the bottom left of the crops, that AGC and X41 doesn't. Still, that's pixel-peeping nonsense.

AGC seems very much like a blend of Kairu and X41. Would be interesting to see what talented people could do to make it the perfect overall package.

Now, in these shots, the colour of my shoes is actually the black in Kairu and AGC. But the extra detail that X41 reveals, although not exactly accurate, is what enables it to bring out the additional details in the outside daylight shots of the garden.

Likewise the colours in the crops are more accurate and detailed in Kairu and AGC.

Perhaps AWB off would remedy the colour issues of this inside daylight shot for X41.

These 3 are SO close.. I would say Kairu and AGC are most similar to each other. X41 brings a more contrasty image and perhaps more muted colours, but on a phone screen, it does seem to pop more and look more defined.

I think for determining the best overall complete useable package, it depends on which one has a decent Ultrawide and Macro to complement the main, with similar colour/exposure etc.
The Ultrawide especially, the lens that needs the most help imo. Macro seem to be working fairly well generally already.

I believe AGC has lots of potential in this regard, since you can see how similar it is to Kairu, but with slighly less noise/artifacting. That extends similarly to their night performance, with Kairu only being a bit brighter, but with the resulting noise that brings.

I have found Kairu and AGC to perform a little better than X41 for night time shots, bringing out certain details that X41 misses. But there are still elements in which X41 is superior.

I'm going to test Yippee-Ki-Yay's AGC settings against just the Sharpness edits I made, when I can use the phone again next.

Laptapper, I believe X41 is your best work yet. Congratulations and thank you for your hard work and dedication! :)

Here's hoping a magic genie can pack all the best properties of all 3 into 1, along with an improved Ultrawide and Macro! ;)

Anybody has any experience with how the camera (with GCam) behaves on MIUI ROMs compared to OSS ROMs? I use MIUI(Mix) and I keep seeing very incosistent results in regard to exposure, white balance, saturation and plenty of other adjustments, which seem to depend on lighting conditions and scene in general, as if all of those are controlled by some kind of additional logic before the shot even gets to the GCam app. It's annoying. So I was wondering if perhaps it is due to something Xiaomi is doing in the MIUI specific camera drivers that might perhaps be absent in the OSS drivers?

Or maybe it's just how this camera module behaves in general
/system/build.prop has issue
add
persist.camera.HAL3.enabled

I've compared pictures of iPhone 12 pro max and our redmi with last lubo recommendations
Original pics :

View attachment 5406199


I think that we can top iphone with further tests and adjustments.
I'm on newest bsg and first impression is that we can get with this same luminance as iphone and maybe more detailed.
So y'all go on with optimization (y)
I know what type of processing an IPhone apply,
1) Its ambiance like -60 and satur like +20 (for background part of image)
2) Its ambience like +60 and satur -20 (for foreground)
So it kinda apply dual processing with also depth of field.

Guys, I have to say it, imo, AGC performs overall better than Kairu.

Added bonus that AGC offers an alternative with AWB off.
Kairu with AWB off results in the same look bit just with slightly softer details

My provisional conclusion:
AGC - Yippee-Kay-Yay HDR+E AWB > LMC R13 - Kairu HDR+E AWB

Special thanks to Yippee-Kay-Yay for sharing his .xml/.agc with me.
Come on bud, sort out that UltraWide for us too! :D
Maybe sprinkle a bit of magic on the Macro as well. ;)

Thoughts? Arguments!? ;) :p

AGC sharpness + clarity tweaks - Asus Max Pro M1 3gb 13mp f2.2
AGC_20220812_015904672.jpg

Apart from the noise due to the f2.2 aperture, I think you can see why the Note 10 Pro was such a huge disappointment to me. The Asus shouldn't look anything remotely as good as it does, and the 4gb version that fell in the pool was 16mp f2.0 and performed even better.
I'm trying to source a used 6gb version from India currently, it also has the 16mp f2.0 lens.

Who's designing these new phones anyway? All this effort is required from random people on a forum just to match a dinosaur, and it STILL works better in many situations I use it for. Pure madness.

I mean, for comparison to earlier shots, check this out:

Anyway, btw this is not my house, I just live in the roof. I'm pretty poor.

Guys, I have to say it, imo, AGC performs overall better than Kairu.

Added bonus that AGC offers an alternative with AWB off. It also results in slightly sharper Night Sight shots, but you have to pixel-peep, ..I included the images anyway.
It seems AWB-off also slightly sharpens up all images. I included AWB-on to match the dark blue of the pc internals.

Yes indeed, i agree too and think that agc performs better than kairu (although i really love kairu xml for human photos) @srslye great job we appreciate ur comparisons!
Do you mind sharing the xml? I want to test it too

I mean ZERO disrespect to anyone, I have only love for all involved. It's just exciting, so my passion might come across abrasively. Apologies if that is the case.

My pleasure. I had incorrectly concluded that AGC - Yippee-Kay-Yay HDR+E AWB-off was slightly better than AWB-on, but I looked at the data and realised I might be wrong, so I removed my statements, and some of the images that I thought proved it. I think it might be slightly beneficial in certain situations, but it's very difficult to quantify. What remains is only that of which I am 100% convinced of.

what is that agcn2 file and where do i put it?
It's AGC's version of .xml, .agc

I found agcn2 to be very noisy and dark, so I didn't include it in the comparison. My post was long enough already, and I annoyed one member by posting too much. So I want to avoid that.

Put it in Downlaods/AGC8.4./configs - load config from drop-down menu.

    After a closer look at the thread, I find it is totally against XDA's standing on the way of sharing.
    As a forum user for years, I spent 20 minutes on this thread back and forth, trying to find the direct links to download files but repeatedly encounter such words "xx is in invitation group" and it leads me to nowhere.
    The whole thread will remain closed until I removed all off topic posts about "invitation group". And I believe this may take a few days.

    TL;DR: all sharing must be happening on XDA or use XDA as major platform

    Wall of Text

    This thread has been cleaned from off topic posts. You may notice that in total about 4 pages of posts are gone (147 vs 143).

    As posted by some users here, this is one of the largesst gcam thread on XDA and the only thread existing for gcam discussion for this device. Unfortunately, it is not very friendly to new gcam users. A newbie, like myself :p, would be 99.5% lost during browsering this thread and the files people talking about were nowhere to find. This must stop.

    I understand a developer's feeling of getting recognization, fulfilled, being needed, helpful, and credited. It is a great achievement to let your hard work to be used by many others. To a developer, getting feedback for sure is a critical way to improve the work. In this thread, I see many users are sharing their work and providiing feedback to each other, not only the main developer here, but each other. I belive in this gcam thread, everyone can develop and you are your own developer. Kudos to every "developers" here. :)

    I also understand the feeling of "losing your work" when you posted it but no one cares or use it without feedback, it feels like "stealing" or "underappreciated". But I believe that is only a tiny portion of users, especially on XDA. And the background reason also varies: some users are new to this development or shy to share or just want to cherry pick the best for themselves. XDA is on internet, and on internet, we see all kinds of people like in your work, in your life. We accept the fact that users are not all perfect but to see the beauty in it: sharing the work with others.

    From now on, please share the xml files directly on XDA. And for OP @Laptapper , I highly suggest you update the first post to include a repo or filehost or any format of summary you like to give others an overview of current progress. For example, you could release a monthly version and then continue ongoing test with users. This is just my suggestion and you have every right to select the way of sharing.

    In the end, I want to emphasize one point:
    all sharing must be happening on XDA or use XDA as major platform. Otherwise it is not allowed by our rules and content will be removed.


    Thanks for reading this wall of text. Hope you all have a good time developing! :D

    hi guys this is my new tweaks to improve noise from original kairu final -0-
    just kairu values mixed into sachisk mixed xml with some tweaks by me FOR LMC R10 x9s.

    almost hits the details in kairu with less noise in both of lens, but ofcourse i'm still improving.

    also working:
    - all lenses color balanced
    - 4K HDR with EIS ON
    - slow-mo

    I've been a fan of MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV2b & Andermendz's RN10P.xml combo. Photo quality was great, color is very close to reality, details - good & good sharpness. But, it was a bit darker than reality & color could be up a notch for a dramatic look. So, tweaked some settings to my liking.
    Disabled macro & wide angle as they are worthless to me.
    Feel free to use or do anything.
    tried out your xml with mgc, here are a few comparison shots with kairu final

    in both pairs, the first pic is with lmc and kairu final xml and the second one is with mgc and your provided xml

    the first pair
    your modified xml provides great deal of quality and sharpness but while having increased the brightness, notice the sky tends to get overblown (its a cloudy and rainy day here so the sky is nowhere near close to how it looks like irl). Kairu's just has that natural tone overall

    the second pair
    here, again andermendz's xml modified version is really bright and kinda distorts the colour to what it is like irl, but it'll look really appealing to people who are into rich and popping colours

    i also noticed that the xml is wayy sharper and provides a great range of contrast when compared to kairu's

    just my thoughts, big ups to you sir for the xml

    My final final KAIRU XML (?)

    This might just be my very last XML if no problems are found. (For LMC R12 Fix)

    Changelog:
    Reduced the green tint on low-light (if it still persists then turn on AWB).

    Sharper and reveals even more details.
    Tuned the Wide camera and also fixed the distortion by changing the interface model, turns out it fixes the distortion only after capturing the image.

    Added a subtle but very nice beauty mode "✨". It is very nice especially on portrait shots / human shots because it hides a bit of the imperfections (but not too much like what a TikTok filter would). And has the same color profile as the Main lens. I also recommend this mode for a very good low-light or maybe even night pictures because it has very low noise

    Please give it a try!

    I've followed the moderator suggestion about the sharing and the XDA rules, although I don't like to share with non XDA members.

    This first post is now with a link to GDrive with shared xmls and libs
    I've adjusted this folder that everyone can modify files inside.
    Please don't delete files, otherwise the test with the editable shared folder ends.

    The whole thread will remain closed until I removed all off topic posts about "invitation group". And I believe this may take a few days.

    TL;DR: all sharing must be happening on XDA or use XDA as major platform

    Wall of Text

    This thread has been cleaned from off topic posts. You may notice that in total about 4 pages of posts are gone (147 vs 143).

    As posted by some users here, this is one of the largesst gcam thread on XDA and the only thread existing for gcam discussion for this device. Unfortunately, it is not very friendly to new gcam users. A newbie, like myself :p, would be 99.5% lost during browsering this thread and the files people talking about were nowhere to find. This must stop.

    I understand a developer's feeling of getting recognization, fulfilled, being needed, helpful, and credited. It is a great achievement to let your hard work to be used by many others. To a developer, getting feedback for sure is a critical way to improve the work. In this thread, I see many users are sharing their work and providiing feedback to each other, not only the main developer here, but each other. I belive in this gcam thread, everyone can develop and you are your own developer. Kudos to every "developers" here. :)

    I also understand the feeling of "losing your work" when you posted it but no one cares or use it without feedback, it feels like "stealing" or "underappreciated". But I believe that is only a tiny portion of users, especially on XDA. And the background reason also varies: some users are new to this development or shy to share or just want to cherry pick the best for themselves. XDA is on internet, and on internet, we see all kinds of people like in your work, in your life. We accept the fact that users are not all perfect but to see the beauty in it: sharing the work with others.

    From now on, please share the xml files directly on XDA. And for OP @Laptapper , I highly suggest you update the first post to include a repo or filehost or any format of summary you like to give others an overview of current progress. For example, you could release a monthly version and then continue ongoing test with users. This is just my suggestion and you have every right to select the way of sharing.

    In the end, I want to emphasize one point:
    all sharing must be happening on XDA or use XDA as major platform. Otherwise it is not allowed by our rules and content will be removed.


    Thanks for reading this wall of text. Hope you all have a good time developing! :D

    Sharing my personal config, arrived at after months of testing and tweaking:
    - For BSG MGC_8.1.101_A9_PV4, no library needed
    - Tested on M2101K6G (sweet)
    - Based on jeneeek's config (heavily tweaked for reduced noise, more accurate colours, better dynamic range)

    - All cameras configured (main, ultrawide, macro, front)
    Includes stabilised 4k video recording for all cameras (though GCam stabilisation isn't as good as on stock MIUI app)​
    - Photos are sharp and detailed, while still looking natural (no oversharpening halos etc)
    - Colours are natural and accurate but more punchy than stock (especially in low light)

    If you prefer instant photos you can turn off HDR+ Enhanced, but I recommend keeping it on as it gives you improved noise management in main cam, better preserved highlights in ultrawide, and more detail in macro/front at the cost of ~1 sec shutter time. Test for yourself if it's worth it.

    ISSUES:
    - No distortion correction in ultrawide
    - In some cases Night Sight photos may be more noisy than optimal
    - Viewfinder may get too dark to see well at night, you can turn on OpenGL preview to fix this

    This is a work in progress, so let me know what you think!

    hi guys
    this is the SACHISK MIXED xml with main lens and front cam from KAIRU FINAL -0-.
    in other words, all of Kairu's main lens natural and definition settings entered into Sachisk's XML. So we have the main camera from Kairu, and the rest (ultrawide lens and video recorder and other configs) from Sachisk. for LMC 8.4 x9s.

    i could not change AWB settings, so the main camera has all the settings from Kairu without AWB. AWB settings from Sachisk.


    from my last 3 2 and a half months, a LMC x9s is really quite stable, and an XML SACHISK MIXED presented the best compromise between functionality and good quality so far. I decided to mix the best of Kairu with the best of Sachisk according to my opinion.
