(There's 2 ltp so check the file size to know which xml. 3.3mb is dx43 and 6.6mb is laptapper 52 )
Ur thoughts?

In this scene, ..I don't know which is more accurate, but Kairu seems overexposed, blows the highlights, to my eyes. Ltp 52? is more similar to Kairu than Ltp dx43? But deals with the highlights better.
But actually, for me the most pleasing to look at is Ltp dx43?...! I love that image.

Imo ltp52 is the closest to reality BUT dx43 is really better to look at!

Sharpness is set at 50 – 60% at mine, so i guess we really need to define a concept for detail here, Over sharpness is not more detail.
Don't mind me bro, I barely know what I'm talking about! :p

I personally like to try use sharpness to clarify fine detail to the point where it is most clearly defined, but before it begins to distort or look look harsh and cold.

My favourite method is "calibrating" using the cover of a childrens book, which has text to focus, but also match the emotion on the characters' faces.

I have been playing with BSG 8.1 lately and found it most stable Gcam for our device, it has almost everything working with mohak xml and intro555 xml. So my question is that why should we not focus on BSG 8.1?

    Can someone share the latest configs/ XML's and for which cameras? I have awhile without tweaking my config and I want to see if there have been some improvements.
    Share my config on LMC R14 fix with some sample. L8er dude!
    Seems the camera agreed to make good photos with ofilm test out of the blue 🤣
    Far night sight and normal, close night sight and normal, focus on building.
    Ps:sorry, i just saw is kairu final, by the file name 🫢
    @Darkxstaar Where can I find an explanation on what the buttons "Leica, LDR, Pro, Res" on the left do (using your xml)?
    Also what mode should I be in for the camera to respect the manual ISO and Shutter Speed slider values?
    I'm pretty happy with the stock camera app, but I hate the sharpening (or maybe local contrast/clarity) in the standard (12 MPx) setting - it's way too strong and creates halos around sharp corners. I don't really want to use the 108 MPx Pro mode as that resolution is a bit impractical to work with.

    Is there any way to just disable/attenuate that sharpening, or is there some camera config file that doesn't change the image too much but removes this issue?

    I use official MIUI, not a custom ROM.
    Stock has more sharpness and contrast and i also hate that, there is modified version of stock cam in which you can adjust sharpness but for that you need to Root your device.and i dont want to root my device just for that.

    Currently using Mind Rom (miui base) and this has the same modified version of stock cam,you can control sharpness and now pictures looks good compared to stock cam, also it has lot of customisation options so you can give it a try.
    Is there a gcam version that can record 4k60. I know there is an option on the lmc and mgc but it doesn't record
    In my opinion it's not possible in case of hardware

    20220901 Thread cleaned

    In case of deleted files from users in my editable folder, test ended here.

    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 both root documents are editable by everyone....
    My final final KAIRU XML (?)

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

    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!

    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
    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.

    - 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.
