Hello there! Can someone please help me with advice? I want to buy S21 Ultra but in my location only Exynos version is available for purchase. I really want to make pictures with astrophotography mode in gcam like with Pixels. I saw amazing astro photos made with S21 but snapdragon version. So my question is: There is no option to make astro photos with Exynos version of S21U and gcam?

So, the instruction here is to download Shamim V22, import the Lib and the XML?

Can you inform what is working and what it not?

Thanks!
It is in the xml name (no lib, so no lib needs to be imported, only the xml). Sadly ns and portrait is not working, maybe someone can fix it in this thread and yes, download the V22 shamim build for this.

@Dummen I am still using lib8.4 Arcide 2022/2/26 Default Merge ISO.so and AGC_8.4.300.18_V6 along with 8.4 arcide lib hdr+.xml from April. Has there been any improvements? Which libs/apk/so are you using today?

The one that I posted yesterday(V22 and my xml for v22 with google stock lib), but mostly for zoom lens, if I really want the best hdr, I use expert raw and adobe lightroom.

Well, I got merge method 2-3 and maybe 1(sabre) working, but it was very bad.. Some areas of the picture were pixelated so badly.. It must be bugged on exynos. Hopefully the devs will make it work for exynos users too.

According to the AGC v7 changelog, support was added for RAW16 merge 0, 2 and 3. 0 is wiener filter and we already know it worked well in the past. 2 is spatial bayer (shasta bracketing) and 3 is spatial RGB (also shasta bracketing & longer processing).
But like you said, 2 and 3 are most likely bugged on Exynos because when I enable merge 3 and take a picture that has very bright highlights, they become pink and pixelated.

Yea.. I could enable it, but I had the issues that You just listed..

BSG 8.4 new version, but no exynos fix included sadly.

    Hi All,

    GCAM for S21 Ultra. For Exynos, try BSG or Zoran. BSG has recently updated.

    Anybody using GCAM on S21 Ultra Exynos variant? Kindly post here which version and config file you're using.

    What's working & what are the known issues with Exynos variant?

    After a few hours of tinkering with the settings and trying different versions, I've come to the conclusion that Wichaya's build is, at the moment, the most usable with the S21U Exynos on One UI 4.0 beta 2.

    https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-wichaya/f/dl4/ - download either the Samsung Ruler or Scan3D versions (otherwise you won't have access to the Auxiliary lenses).

    Attached to this post should be a .xml file which is a configuration file, created by me, SPECIFICALLY for the Wichaya GCam 1.4 version.

    I made a few changes here and there, mostly fixing the camera IDs. Now I am pleased to say ALL cameras work. All 4 on the back and the selfie cam works too (needed a little fix).

    My .xml is quite "barebones" - I only fixed what needed to be fixed so the app doesn't crash. Although I haven't tried video modes....
    Feel free to adjust the ram patcher and other settings to your liking.




    Why is Wichaya's GCam more usable than Arnova's?

    Well, simply because there is a problem with the 3x telephoto on Arnova's version. The pictures come out very noisy, and no setting I've tried seemed to help. Also using the selfie cam caused the app to crash. So yes, right now I suggest using Wichaya's build.

    Hi guys, soon-to-be S21 Ultra (exynos) user here. Has anything changed in regards to auxiliary lenses in apps like GCam? Do the telephotos work, or still just the ultra wide? Thanks.
    To my knowledge still only UW and UWW, so no telephoto lenses on GCams.... I'd be very happy if someone could correct me, though ;)
    Telephoto with GCam can work...but not without effort. First, you need root. Second, you need that root access to replace a system library file with a patched one. Since a patched library file is needed, it means that with every system update, you need a new patched library. Probably not worth it for most, but if you are already rooted, could be worth a try. I don't have the Exynos model, but this file should work for the AUDA build ROMS.

    - Reduced certain denoise parameters for improved textures
    - Reduced chroma denoise for better colors
