@Laptapper for the AGC 7 test, the xml-config path are /Download/AGC.8.4/configs/
but for libs and/or noise modeler, the path are the same?

Thank you
You can leave noise and libs where they are. Start app and import noise models, same for lib.

@Laptapper
Repeat test (main+macro with panorama, with/without sun, single object, ecc.) results (for me):

1. Shamim V20 + libs + config
2. AGC 7 + libs + noise modeler + config
3. LMC R9 + libs + config

Nothing change, Shamim are the best. Why not V21fix for Shamim?

Shamim v21 produces for me some problems with settings in lib patcher (changings doesn't affect anything or little setting changes produces big changings in picture quality)

Thanks for your comparison.
What you think yourself? Because only you has seen the original view, so I'm interested in your personal opinion.

MIUI is brighter but Shamim and AGC are easy to setup in night brighter with increasing iso...

Yeah you're right,anyways..i think shammim has some kind of noise in the sky while the other pics don't,but it also has the best details and quality.lmc is a bit too dark though
So for now my opinion is:
-Shammim is the best but it needs more teawking to reduce noise
-AGC is also the best in terms of lights and details(my hands are shaky xD but if i try more and get a stable one im sure it's going to rival shammim quality)
-LMC is good overall too,but like you said we can't improve it further...
i think we should focus more on shammim and AGC and make one of them the best app overall🤝

Comparing MTSL-SHAMIM-LMC Gcams:
-MTSL 7.2 with Xml:MTSL8.3_V7.2, Lib: libpatched_ini.so (Pag 28 post 554).
-Shamim V20 with Xml: SACHISK_SHA8.4_V20_Finalƒô©.xml (Page 50 post 998), Lib: lib8.4.300_Arcide_2022-04-07.so (Page 50 post 998). Note, I think something is wrong, since I don't see that the Lib loads (it appears without selecting either Google or custom lib) (it may be a problem with the Gcam V20 app???).
-LMC 8.4 with Xml: startxml-lmcR9-3.xml (Page 62 post 1227), Lib: libgcastartup_ xHDR.so (Page 60 post 1188).

First shots, at dusk, see cloud color and mountain wall on the left (it is light orange). Details of the photo can be seen on the sheets at the bottom of the photo. Main lens. Miui missing.

Second shots, backlit photo. The wall is orange in color (it is partly red limestone and white sandstone, together with pieces of more compact gray limestone-->the real color tends to light orange). main lenses.

I add xml and Gcam LMC tuned.

    Did you tried bsg 8.4.600_A10_v12?
    It has aux support, focus tracking, try with Libs. And yes its not best in daylight but its better in indoor and low-light conditions.with best noise control.
    I've tried v13 ;)
    Not bad but adjustment possibility is really rare....
  • 6
    There is already V22fix apk (y)
    You're right, my fault.

    What's new!!

    - Fixed previously reported few bugs related to aux lens.

    Check the signature deta before installing:-
    Signature MD5: cb3363348414b0583c830294c272e10f
    Signature SHA-1: 927ca44949d7788aa86f9d7f04d7fdacecd1dfb9
    Signature SHA-256: 6215f00baa4bf18bab5792fc796bfc5555917240f14f7c7e672d956888d75c96

    Please try with attached lib and xml and please give feedback.

    Night mode you can try alone or with auto night or only auto night or on night mode tab with night mode button for brighter results. Hires sometimes has to be double activated.

    Hi y'all

    I think it's needed to start from scratch with Shamim gcam v23fix.
    Before starting with lib patcher my opinion is to optimize all other settings like noise modeller, hdr and lens types, color settings.....
    Again: trying to adjust all standard settings, without switching lib patcher on, to get the best start XML for second step: patching with lib patcher.

    I'm sharing my new start XML named lt006c.

    Battle
    I'd like to pay for the best start XML 10 Euro. May someone else wanna pay too, Soo we get faster progress.
    My suggestion is if we have the best start XML then we make the next combat with lib patcher and also with possible but without payment obligation.

    Agreeing?

    Here's my actually and best config for Shamim v20.
    Use it with attached lib (unzip)
    5
    This is what i mean by warmer colors, s22 ultra vs 13 pro max
    Colors and saturation can be added later but for me details and noise less pics are more important.

    Thanks to @SachiSK
    He gave me a tip via pm to enhance the quality further.
    For Shamim v22 fix and lib above

    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!

    Update 16.5.22
    Hi guys
    In coordination with dontango777 and shadowstep and in case of better sorting they've allowed me to be the new thread owner.
    Thanks to @Dontango777 @shadowstep

    I'll try to hold the first posts in this thread up2date and also with your opinion of best gcam.
    For this it would be good to know your opinion after you've checked out my newest package. My opinion is that we're on a quite good way, so it's everyday much more dificult to increase picture quality. Further more I think now it's only possible with Shamim APK, but I saw problems in v21, better to take V20.

    Any Ideas and suggestions but also critism for the first posts to have a good overview are welcome. I wanna be also neutrally with your help and of course it's possible if your enhancement is the best that I post your package, lib, XML and APK here in the first posts.

    I would be glad if a lot of people work together to get the best gcam ever💪(y)🙏

    There is no support of wide and macro lens in this BSG camera lol, or am I missing something?
    The support of all 3 cameras in the latest 8.1 BSG version is brilliant, probable in a few days it will be available also for the newest BSG 8.3 version - actually I haven't tested it yet! :)
    P.S. During the last few days I was busy on a bicycle marathon but now I'm back and I'm ready to continue the tests of the best GCam mods and also the ANX Camera support for AOSP based ROMs.
    During the last 3 days I used almost only the BSG 8.1 version GCam mod with the config in the attachments below.
    I'm extremely happy with the BSG v8.1 results, below I'm posting few shots.

    - Turned off HDR+ Enhanced by default (you can turn it on whenever you like)

    Continued my GCam tests today and I think that I have found the BEST working GCam for our device - the best only from the few mods I have tested .. :) :) :)
    I have made a lot a lot of tests today and the best detail and quality I have received from the latest BSG GCam mod with BSG Gcam config for Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro from Alim.xml, link to the .xml config here: Alim.xml.
    I have tested and compared the same scene with the same focus point, the camera is placed on tripod.

    Below you can find some of my latest tests:
    On the name of the file I have written the name of the camera used and if it is with HDR+ switched on or off:

    As you can see alone the best result on the image when zoomed as clean detail with no strange pixels and noise is on the pictures made with the latest BSG GCam mod with Alim config.
    This GCam mod supports perfectly the 3 back cameras and the front one with extremely detailed configuration options per each camera.
    All this extremely long list of configurations available per each of the 3 cameras you can find in Settings / Modules
    0.6 is the Ultra Wide camera
    1.0 is the main Wide camera
    2.0 is the Macro camera
    In front of the BSG GCam interface you can choose which one of the 3 cameras you use.
    Tomorrow I'll test different configs and GCam mods and I'll post more info if I find better Camera / Config for Redmi Note 10 Pro ...
    :) :) :)
