Yes I applied both config and libs. If you zoom in on the photo, the noise in the dark areas is severe. especially the main lens
Try posting some examples. Look at these two pictures I just posted using the M3. Soft profile. There's not much detail because of the noise reduction, but definitely no noise.

Latest AGC from post 1 is blurring on 10x lens, tried about 6 times, not 1 was sharp at all, like the focus is out or something, see screengrabs compared to stock. This using the config from arcide.

an Shamin's latest has a major bug, see screengrab, zoom slider and lens selector overlap in Landscape mode...so you cannot changes lenses!

This is intentional. Remember that the AGC config is 4 different ones that you can switch at the top right. My default is M3 Soft which I prefer because of how natural it looks. You can try the other ones to get a sharper picture. As for your last two examples, OIS is working but it isn't magic. When you drop down below 1/50 shutter speed, even with OIS it can still have motion blur because the 10x lens is ~230mm.

Mistake was mine, image stabilisation is off by default, you need to switch it on in settings, which i did, all good now.

Give LMC a try. It started as a base of Shamin so the UI is very similar if you prefer that look.




LMC v9 already has S22 Ultra's noise models built in, so you do not need to manually add any. HM3 is the main camera sensor, but I had always preferred the Xiaomi 11 Ulra's GN2 noise model for the main camera.


Updated LMC config based on Arcide's 5.1 and a couple of pictures taken with it.

You're killing me with your captures. I've been stealth following this thread and am using the latest AGC and configs you've linked.

I'm able to get some clarity with the 3x and 10x much better than stock, but nothing close to what you're posting.

I set out this morning with tripod in hand to the garden to snap me some insects, flowers and birds....

My results aren't even close. Are there any other settings you're adjusting? For example, each snap is taking ~2 seconds, which I'd far too long for a bird or bee doing their business.

Thanks for your work here!

It's all about lighting. You need a scene with good daylight and be closer to the subject. The telephotos might be good for long range, but it's even better at closer ranges. ZSL (HDR+ regular and not enhanced) mode can take pictures without delay but is worse in lower light.


Added new AGC 9.2 config. Now supports both human and dog face detection (sadly, no cats or any other animals).

For AGC 8.4 GCam v9.2 APK when I go to Load Lib and select ArcideLMCv5.1rev.so it causes the camera to crash anytime I try to take a photo. I can only have Google selected in the custom lib for it to not crash. Is there a fix?

Can someone post indoor / low light portrait samples (of human faces) from the Telephoto lens taken with Gcam on S22U?

I am having issues with the colors with the Raw file from GCAM for both AGC and LMC. Tint value are usually at 150 maxed out when i import the raw files and resetting it to zero result in a greenish tint. This happens to all the lens from 0.6 to 10x and occurs for all scenes so it is not just plants. Is there anyway to fix this?

This is bothering me as i plan to do post processing for some raw photos.

Below is a screenshot from LR with the tint maxed out at +150 and temp at 4750 when i import the raw DNG from GCAM.

Gcam raw tint issue.JPG



Raw DNG from default camera app with Temp at 5100 and tint at +7 respectively when importing.

Camera raw ss.JPG



GCAM raw DNG when i try to set to replicate the Temp and Tint from the default camera RAW above results in a green tint.

    Use lmc latest best one
    There is version 14 but I was not able to make it work in my S22U snapdragon

    UPDATE, I found the lastest version I will share here

    A continuation of my previous thread for the S21 Ultra. I will keep this thread updated for new builds and configs for as long as I have the Snapdragon S22 Ultra. I am no expert with lib patchers so the configs I upload will be a modification of others that is adapted for this phone. Also, since I do not have the Exynos version, I cannot say if any of the configs will work with it.

    Why GCam?
    Obviously, GCam isn't for everyone. If you are already happy with stock or Expert RAW, that's awesome. If you're like me and do not like the over sharpened look of stock or the aggressive noise reduction of Expert RAW, GCam is a wonderful option that is very customizable. Example 1, example 2, example 3.

    All credits of course goes to the GCam devs and modders out there. Each GCam build will have an about page that lists credits. If you like these builds and want to support your favorite dev/modder, please help them out by donating to them. Links are available on the Celso website!

    You can install multiple versions of GCam IF they do not use the same package name (ex: com.samsung.android.scan3d). If two different builds has the same package name, you must uninstall the previous.

    There is no "best GCam". Try the builds available to see what you like. Customize them to your own preference.


    GCam 8.4 Builds

    AGC 8.4 GCam v9.2 APK and Config for it (based on Arcide's config using merge method 3)
    Created by KaKa, this version is color accurate, supports night mode and astrophotogrpahy mode. Also has plenty of options for configuration. Unfortunately, photosphere modes do not work.

    Steps to setup:
    - Download and install the APK and give it the requested permissions
    - Download the config and extract the zip file
    - Load the config file for the S22U (swipe down > load configs)
    - Import lib (go to settings > libraries > copy third party lib to app)
    - Load lib (settings > libraries > load custom library)

    There are now 4 profiles configured. M3 means merge 3 and M1 means merge 1. Merge 3 is better for noise but has more motion artifacts. Sharp means more detail and sharpness but also more noise. Smooth means more natural looking and less noise/detail.

    LMC 8.4 GCam r12 Fixed APK and XML for it (based on Arcide's v5 config)
    Created by Hasli, this version is color accurate, supports night mode and astrophotogrpahy mode. Also has a ton of options you can enable such as manual focus, manual shutter/ISO, etc.

    Steps to setup:
    - Download and install the APK and give it the requested permissions (it will crash after)
    - Download the config and copy it to Internal Storage > LMC8.4
    - Open the GCam and quickly switch to video before it crashes
    - Import XML by double tapping in the space between the shutter and viewfinder

    Pro mode uses merge method 3 and has more noise reduction, turning it off switches to merge method 1 and is a bit sharper. LDR stands for low dynamic range, I think it adds contrast to scenes with less range.

    Shamin 8.4.400 GCam v20 APK and XML for it (based on Roma's config using merge method 3)
    Created by Shamin, this is probably the GCam with the most options. To be more color accurate, I chose to enable the Pixel 5 interface and System CCT which breaks night mode and astro mode. Photosphere mode doesn't work.

    Steps to setup:
    - Download and install the APK and give it the requested permissions
    - Download the XML and put it in the Internal Storage > GCam > Configs8.4 folder (make the folder if you don't already have it)
    - Run the GCam and give it permissions (it will crash after a few seconds)
    - Run the app again but quickly switch to video mode to avoid it crashing quickly
    - Open GCam's settings and go to additional settings > configs setting > XML save directory
    - Don't change the directory but just hit OK
    - Go back to the main screen and switch to video again so it doesn't crash
    - Double tap on space between shutter and gallery to load XML

    GCam 8.1 Build

    BSG Public Build MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV1z and XML for it (config by Jajo based on a config by Fenix)
    Created by BSG. Excellent and very stable GCam. Pretty much every option works.

    Steps to setup:
    - Download and install the APK and give it the requested permissions
    - Download the XML and put it in the Internal Storage > Downloads > MGC_8.1.101_Configs folder (make the folder if you don't already have it)
    - Run the GCam and give it permissions
    - Double tap on space between shutter and gallery to load XML

    Updated lib and config for AGC v7 (yes I realize AGC v8 is out but it has a weird bug in the viewfinder for our phones). The config is from Arcide's v4 config for LMC. I exported the values into a lib file and then tweaked it in my AGC config.

    Here are some pictures taken with the latest config.

    @beserker15 thank you for thre support.
    For me 8.1 build works the best but it is a pain switching lenses. The circles that have to be slided always mess up.
    Any workaround? Thanks
    While I don't use the 8.1 build anymore, I think the trick was to not tap exactly where the icons were but slightly away from them.


    Also here are a few more of pictures I took using the AGC v7 config with the 10x lens.

    Hi I have an issue, I'm using the Shamin apk, is the one that I prefer from all the other ports listed here, I'm loading the XML and everything is working perfectly except for the front camera, sometimes the pictures it takes looks like it was taken with the lowest resolution available, is there any workaround for this?
    Give LMC a try. It started as a base of Shamin so the UI is very similar if you prefer that look.


    I've installed AGC 8.4 v9 on my S22 Ultra and have also loaded the config and lib files. I noticed that on this page under the S22 Ultra section, there's noise models linked there too. I noticed those aren't linked in your OP. Once we've imported the noise models, do we have to then select each one for each camera?

    Under the instructions it just says to import all of the noise models under Main (1.7x), but I noticed that doing that then sets main to whatever the last noise model is selected (in my case that was S22USnapdragon_IMX754 which I thought was incorrect since IMX754 isn't the main camera sensor). Any advice on what the correct thing to do here would be great.

    LMC v9 already has S22 Ultra's noise models built in, so you do not need to manually add any. HM3 is the main camera sensor, but I had always preferred the Xiaomi 11 Ulra's GN2 noise model for the main camera.


    Updated LMC config based on Arcide's 5.1 and a couple of pictures taken with it.
