There are many gcams with all lenses working, but for best pictures only main sensor is worth using. Rest is just marketing. Why would one use worse lense instead of better one? I.e. Gcam 7.4 nikita or ultra cvm gcam 8.1 all lenses are working.
I'm well aware there are gcam ports with all working lenses but those require gapps or micro-g to work. That was my point.

Hey,

so i tried latest parot (just got released), nikita (could not find how to add lib), arnova (with and without lib) and bsg.

Just tested on a simple plain photo on the same object.

Bsg had the best quality of them all.
Nikita 2nd.
Compare with Nikita's 7.4 with surferbyter's xml and you may get even better results.

Just did.

BSG still seems better to me.

Can i get some opinions please?

IMG (left one) is nikita with the above xml.
PXL (right one) is BSG.

Xda compresses them a bit.

Real sizes in device:
Nikita - 5.7mb
Bsg - 3.4mb

Left one looks better to me.

One observation: none of the gcam mods let you reduce the image size to 2MP. Why do you need such a large image just to watch on a phone screen? Even on a pc screen it's an overkill. Anything over 2MP is mostly for cropping or poster printing.

One basic question: what are and what do the libraries you talk about do? I only installed apk and added the xml but I never heard about those libraries before.

Indeed, I knew that there was an option for that, but I have not looked into it and know nothing about it.

@vanpoko Have you played around with Custom Libs?

I'm on NGCam 7.4 v2.0 Final with @vanpoko's latest XML files (main + optional) and did not install any additional libs (yet).

In Settings >> Lib Patcher >> Custom Lib I can find the following:
  • Google (selected by default or by @vanpoko's XML config?)
  • NGCam
  • NR57W15T17 (User_X)
  • Alice (r0m10)
So what's up with this?

I think you have shared wrong link on your previous post (https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/gcam-for-poco-x3.4164397/post-84771277) You said stable arnova gcam but the link takes to a beta release post. I downloaded the apk from that link so it is the beta apk but the screenshot you've share in this post is maybe stable apk
Download of this link. Try Snapcam version.

So what's up with this?

In NGcam 2.0 those 4 libraries are installed with the apk, you can try them and they'll give you different processing in the final picture; by default is the Google one but if you find better results with another you can leave it selected. In the new Arnova mod there's this new option to load external libraries; surferbyter posted a package of libraries and they are very easy to load and change and test how the results are.

All this needs now is working selfie video. I mean it's one of the most basic things
To make the video work on the front camera just change the Configs stream on the main momentarily. Unfortunately, the EISV2 for now can only be set on one of the two because if it is set on the main they do not go or video on the front, but the video stabilizations in the first work well only with that Configs stream. Waiting for fixes that will come in the next versions.

    This is my new xml for the latest Arnova 6.210329.0153build-8.1.101; it works with the final r0m10 custom config lib_R1_01Final.so; both xml and lib must be in the folder /GCam/Configs8.
    This is the mod and config that I'm using now and the results are very good, great quality pictures with zero noise and artifacts, great definition and colors. Try it if you have the Arnova mod installed.

    Update xml.

    Fixed sharpness and noise on wide.

    Fixed results in front photos for softer selfies.


    Clear data and cache, load xml, load and activate custom library Ultra_AI.so

    This is link of many libraries. https://mega.nz/folder/yiIiHBbT#KaSvzRngnzPJrZa5ArEE_Q

    I make a separate post so as not to confuse the photos. Attached I put a photo taken with the xml of the previous post with some on the very zoomed clippings. Notice the detail and the total lack of artifacts on balcony railings, TV antennas and air conditioner grilles.

    I'm using NGcam with taalojarvi's config, but I feel like the stabilization isn't very effective. Does activating the Optical Imagem Stabilization help in any way, knowing that the phone does not have OIS?
    For me, stabilization is perfect with NGcam 2.0 and latest Urnyx05 (7.3.018 v2.5). I shared before an xml, but I have a new one with some changes that I can share again and video is perfect and stable with it (at least for me with latest official MIUI).

    @vanpoko: thanks for the xml file, pics look way better than stock camera app. Are you saying that you have two configfiles?, one for video and one for pics?. Would you be so kind to post them both.
    Are you expecting there will be much improvement in the gcam app or is this as good as its gets?.
    Sure! Here you have 3 different xmls, one for faster pictures with only 7 frames in the HDR+, one to use the front camera video and another to use the wide angle camera video with good quality and stabilization. These are complementary xmls, the main one is the one posted before.

    About improvement with GCam, all the most known modders have finished with the 7.xxx series and for me the best is NGcam and the final mod from Urnyx05 is also excellent. Now they are all working with the 8.xxx series but I haven't found one that I really like and with similar results like this NGcam; I think Nikita's first 8.1 GCam is the best even without having libpatcher or support for all the lenses, so I'll wait for his next fully developed mod that for sure it will be the best.

    Hi everyone. I'm using the new Poco X3 since yesterday and it's a blast. Do you know of any GCam port available for this phone?
    8
    These are my definitive xmls for NGCam 2.0 and trCamera_Xmas_Release; everything is working OK and smoothly and auxiliary lenses are almost perfect now, as they were the most difficult to achieve a good level of quality and denoise (for me, the premade noise models are horrible).

    Trcam dec 2020


    Clone version


    It is convenient to have two trcam so you can use two different xml, for example one with high sharpness for landscapes, architecture and the like and one with softer details for human figures and selfies ..

    Hi great news! Nikita's newest gcam build 2.0 is capable of 12MP (4624x2604) pictures and also 1080P video in wide angle camera mode. I use standard config file advertised in this thread for over a month now (HDR+ 15 frames). Audio bitrate 192KB/s. Really happy :)

    Xml for UltraCVM 8.


    Based on xml of Arnova Beta tester latest version.
    Optimized the camera buttons on the ui so that you only have three, UW, main and Macro.
    Set as a Configs video stream on the Eisv2 main camera so you can use the google camera stabilizations of pixels, standard, locked, active, and cinematic pan ...
    I advise you to test son something never seen on a gcam to date.
