With all the problems the s20 ultra had with focus, seems it was all fixed by adding the laser with the note.

But even if it's just for the main lens, does gcam focus properly? And does it use the laser?

Thanks

I just performed a test with both the stock camera and gcam on my N20U and the focusing speeds were very similar, that's about all I can say. Hopefully this helps.

Which XML are you using? i tested both Arnova's and Urnxy's ports and found stock camera to be better, currently i'm using ZGcam (Zoran's) and i found it better for normal shots, and HDR, no tele or wide support though



I'm on exynos BTW



Thanks!
I'm using the MacIntosh one from the list in the image that I've attached....

I'm on Snap Dragon

I found the focus not working on my Galaxy Note 20 Ultra unless I toggled between some other camera mode (like video) and then back to Photo. This was true of both Urnyx05's GCam_7.3.018 and Arnova's GCam_6beta.201115.1444build-8.0.101

I tried GCam for the n2u and no dice, it starts and crashes before it comes up. Do you guys have it running on Exynos? And if so, can you point out the version you use?
 
Gcam 7.3 Urnyx uses the laser autofocus.
I pointed my old S5 to it and there, the blue diode is running as well it does with the Samsung Camera app.
I think the difference is Gcam does a lot of post processing.
