Hello ladies and gentlemen
I took a good config from 𝚂𝙰𝙲𝙷𝙸𝙽_𝚂𝙺
and modified it more in my taste

So it's a cooperation XML with thanks to @𝚂𝙰𝙲𝙷𝙸𝙽_𝚂𝙺 and used with standard Google lib.

It's lmcs3lt50

Here's an example shot of this XML with my standard focus on heets:
app crash when switching to video mode

Quick comparison between Kairu Final and Lapper xml.. Lmcr13fix2 both shots.
KairuFinal picture seems more sharp, particularly zooming in!
Although too much noises under some circumstances,
I have a preference for KairuFinal.

Thanks to Laptapper and alls to allow us to test their work!

Hello, this my experience with MisterX xml + appropiate lib and gcam as intended (main mode and hm2+) and lmcs3lt50b XML + Google lib + lmc 13 V2 (main mode and nature 🌴mode).

- in their main mode, the image produce similar color with the difference MisterX have more sharpening that causing halo effect (For me I prefer not to over sharpen my photo),

- and hm2+ produce bluish image, and 🌴 produce darker more saturated/vibrance photo,

- if those pictures (main mode) compare with real world color, from my eye the green little bit more saturated in their original color.
1. Lmcs3lt50b (main)

do you understand photography and programming to know exactly what each value means in the Photo Processing tab? I always think I know what each value I'm trying to change means, but it always seems to get worse. I'm trying to get the noise out of Sachisk + Kairu

New shamim v30

What's new!!

- Now all lens issues supposed to be fixed. I forced all auto front lens ids as front main lens id for avoiding crash because of front logical ids. If you want to use them, then lens ids will be available on listpreference of the lens id selection.
- Added more lens infos on listpreference of the lens id selections.
- Made a way to get almost all camera characteristics keys with values, request keys, request keys, lens infos, output resolution size, output resolution format, capabilities and etc as lens log.

It's very difficult to adjust an universal config for all light ambience but try my x100.x config with Shamim v30

Kairu final 0 is still very good but not really adjusted in night or lower light conditions. Of course everybody has other opinions, one say to sharp the other not sharp enough...too much color - too less.....to crispy - too smooth....

Here I've compared kairu final 0 in Shamim and LMC APK
and my x with Shamim (not usable in LMC)

I'm using high res but also sharing a picture with standard res of my x

Made some photos LMC Kairu-final-0, LMC Kairu-Sachinsk-mixed, AGC and Shamim V29 with Kairu-final-0. Plus 3 photos on night mode in very low light. AGC did work the best here. Kairu-final-0 is a little bit too dark. Anyway Kairu-final-0 on LMC workes for me the best, crashes on new Shamin V30 in macromode. Since I worked night-shift for the last 2 weeks, I could not test more. Since I don't know what to do playing with settings, I just can contribute some testphotos and hope that will help a little .

Great work bud!

It would be awesome if LMC Kairu-Final was less noisy, and perfomed as well as AGC in low-light. And then matched for Ultrawide and Macro.

    Hi guys

    May someone can help me with atrached xml.
    In this shamim version v35 xml I didn't find a solution for video recording. It's working but you have to click to video tab, back to camera and again to video tab, then video works.
    It has to be a settling in the xml, because other xmls haven't this "switching problem"
    But until now I hadn't found the right setting ....
    @Laptapper

    Thanks. What you've changed?
    Its because of white balance was turned on (chameleon in dev settings and white balance in main settings)

    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

    Other xml, what i've used:

    From heyamiyou:
    AMI • SGCam [v34Fix] Lens Fix.xml
    AMI-LMC R12 DSRL 📸 (LMC V12) Fix Lens.xml
    AMI-LMC R12 DSRL 📸 (AWB-COLOR OFILM).xml Change DSLR to color OFILM (not for sunny device)

    From Prashant:
    Lmc8.4_r13_prashant_premium_v4.4☘️.xml (This is the last)
    BSG 8.5.300_prashant🍄.xml (only main cam)

    From Mohak:
    RMN10ProMax_Mohak⭐⭐BSG 8.1.xml

    Unkown:
    LMC-A-Ok_v2_COLOR.xml (very satured)

    Note: I'm sorry, but in some I have changed some things, but I don't remember which and what I have changed, but they are minor changes in appearance or operation. The configuration of the xml is all of its creator.

    Hi everyone (again)
    I have some new tests for the astrophotography mode. The tested XMLs are AGC8.4.300_V9.1_Fix1.apk with RN10PV31SG-V2.xml, laptapperLMCdef11.xml and MisterX - LMCTWN1 V220821.xml
    Also I have as reference a new photo in pro mode with the normal Xiaomi camera.

    The results are not good however, the agc XML got better results (but still far from ideal).
    Btw great work for all the developers and of course non of this XMLs or gcams are my work.

    Hi everyone
    As today is new moon and I am actually in a place with not much light pollution I decided to try the astrophotography mode. The tested XMLs are KAIRU FINAL [0] , andermendz3.3 and SACHISK_MIXED+KAIRUFINAL-0-.xml.
    Also I have as reference a photo in pro mode with the normal Xiaomi camera.

    I have to admit that I am a little disappointed with the results as the best shot is with the Xiaomi camera. Astrophotography mode actually gets more stars but it has a lot of noise and red green blue dots. There is a lot of improvement that can be done in this area and I would really appreciate taking amazing photos in astrophotography mode.
    Btw great work for all the developers and of course non of this XMLs or gcams are my work.
    It would be awesome if I could get access to the private folder and test other XML. I will have 2 or 3 more nights to test the astrophotography mode with the best conditions if someone wants me to test something else.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.
