It is really frustrating that even though it is the combined forum for both sweet & sweetin devices, no one is actually sharing any xml's, lib's or apk's dedicated for sweetin.

Btw, Shamim V20 + LTshaminV20-3.2.xml without the libs produces best photos. It gives colorless photos if I use the lib(libgcastartup_ xHDR).

Bugs -
Selfie as Previewed.
EIS.
240fps slow-mo (I selected 120fps & that works).

You can try HDR enhanced or maybe try changing Color transmission, with Lib if still the same problem, then there is a xml and gcam package available in Telegram group, you can use it for 64mp model

@Laptapper i agree that your Shamim package gives better details in daylight conditions and its better than any other available xmls as of now, but in low light and daylight indoor conditions it need improvement, and i think it has more black contrast, at night it has more noise too, Hope you will work on that.

Thank you so much! Do you know if they plan to add support to the third back camera (the wide angle one)
I think it's already supported. You have to enabled it be yourself.

Or you can use @Laptapper xml file to that gcam port. I think you can find that xml file on this thread. Can't remember page where it is.

@Laptapper and @SachiSK ...help is needed in this case (y)

    Hey guys, here my XML:

    What works:

    • Video Stabilization
    • Better detail without noise or artifacts( as i showed on #1604 and #1605)
    • Front Camera improved to get more natural colour and natural detail
    • 2X zoom with the main lens look lossless no cap
    • No noise at all ( in all the lenses)
    • All the lenses
    To be considered:

    This config is based on the most neutral preferences, you'll not find pretentious and cringy colours here.

    My intention is to make everything look as natural as posible( no overdenoised, processed but not RAW and useless image).

    If you want a good template to start this XML is a good one.

    DONE ON LMC R11
    4
    LMC 8.4 R11

    Changelog​

    • Updated tooltips, styles, menus and more, black theme for night mode
    • A second value has been added for all patcher parameters that have an on or off switch.
    • Unlocking Noise Models is divided into modules and displayed in the Noise Models section
    • The option with the Photo Resolution button is identical to RAW. The option has been included in R9, R10 which may cause issues on some other devices. It is recommended to enable for Mi10TP, MN10, Mi10 and other devices that support high resolution. The RES button seamlessly switches between resolutions. (HMX 12mp > 27mp)
    • Forward interface selection
    • Fix HDR Raw split by modules
    • corrections
    • Fixed merge selection on/off dependency. saber cup
    • Returned most parameters removed
    • Returned Portrait mode in session and added all values for slow motion video
    • Fixed work on Redmi 9, Realme 8, RN8P, partially Galaxy M52 and possibly others
    • Added new settings

    Part 2(5x zoom) my work in progress for LMC Vs BSG both in HDR enhanced , last one for reference LMC on HDR+.

    Yeah, I see that. But, I think in this low-lit condition it's challenging even for flagship phones.

    Can you please export your own xml & then upload it here?
    After exporting you will find it in internal/lmc8.4/ folder.
    Thanks.
    You must be right. Just it seems to me that three years ago there was a huge improvement in computational photography, and even budget models such as Moto G7 plus could deliver pretty convincing results (even though they could not deal well with high contrast scenes). Now the HDR is better implemented, and it's nice. But I acknowledge a step back in terms of general jpeg quality which is absurd, given the grown physical size of sensors. In-phone post processing makes a part of the job. But more in the direction of of sharpness than detail.

    Please find attached the config file for the LMC V9 I tweaked a bit to my taste.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Here's my actually and best config for Shamim v20.
    Use it with attached lib (unzip)

    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)🙏

    UPDATE:
    - Ultrawide now has distortion correction
    - Slow Motion video fixed (thanks @zelodev)
    - Numerous small quality improvements
    - Turned off HDR+ Enhanced by default (you can turn it on whenever you like)

    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.

    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 ...
    :) :) :)
