The lower the value, the faster the processing speed.
The higher the value, the better the quality of the photo.

Try to find a balance.. It is also possible that there will be little to no difference regarding quality when comparing super high and medium, but the difference between processing the image may be high.

For those interested in the play store now there is the application
GCam Tool is a tool offered by Google playstore that allows you to optimize the management of photos taken with Google Camera, automatically placing them in the gallery.

When making shots with the blurry background, Google Camera saves the photos in a new folder in the gallery. The app offers the possibility to automatically move them to the correct position.

On the main screen you can start or stop the execution of the app, while in the configuration panel you can select the folder in which Google Camera will save the photos and the desired destination, with the ability to choose whether to copy only the pictures portrayed or all.

I've notice the same. When taking some more (3-5) photos one by one - phone freezes - like it have lack of processing power... LGV30.

I installed V3.5 on my Pixel 2 and it is as fast as the stock camera app, while on my V30 it is noticeably slower. I do not know how Google optimized their phone so well with respect to GCam but it's amazing how much better it runs on the Pixels. On my Pixel I can capture ~10 photos and only have maybe 1 or 2 not HDR+ Processed and the phone doesn't lag. On the V30 I have to stop at 4 to 5 photos before it starts lagging and already have 1 or 2 not HDR+ Processed photos.


What is the recommended hdr speed? I put LOW

"Default" is what the Pixel's use. The HDR+ Parameters changes how many frames are captured in HDR+ Enhanced. From 7 at Default up to ~46 at Very High. I have found that handheld, Medium is the best compromise, but I usually just leave it at Default. Once the slow shutter speed mod is dialed in, it will give better results than changing HDR+ Parameters in my opinion. I mean, it already does as far as noise and detail goes, Adaptive Shutter mod just needs to be reigned in a little so it's not SO slow and makes handheld images blurry.


I have an Essential phone and everything works fine but the slow motion!!!

It's still much better than other modded cameras out there that I tried before for my phone.

Thanks

@aer0zer0 has a magisk module to help with that I believe, please read his thread here in the Essential forum: https://forum.xda-developers.com/essential-phone/themes/magisk-based-gcam-port-ar-sticker-t3730837

the long exposure is groundbreaking for ''night time traveling shots''. i hope you will be able to add on/offon the viewfinder and cap the shutter speed at a faster speed.

@cstark27
I join the thankful choir for the long exposure mode. I've tried several times this feature in other developers' mods but this is the first time it predictably works on the LG G6.
I noticed that when the scene gets really dark, the camera crashes. It seems to be related to the processing time. The waiting spinner ring is divided into 14 sectors and the camera can crash either in the beginning, before the first sector is completed, or in the middle of the processing. A strange thing however: after 4 sectors out of 14 are completed, the photo appears in the preview circle and the rest of the processing doesn't seem to impact the result. If the camera crashes after the 4th sector, you'll still get the picture. Another strange thing is the ISO indication. It's normally 50 or 53, but when the processing gets long, it always indicates 2147483647.
It looks like the picture are taken at the lowest available ISO. Would it be possible to progressively increase the ISO value as the lights are getting low, so the camera can keep a relatively fast processing time. I mean pictures are beautiful at iso 50, but they are still very nice even at iso 400. Maybe increasing the iso could solve the bug with crashing camera?

Give it shot honestly, its hit or miss, lots of phones with the same fix dont work? what phone are you using currently, and OS.

If you can send me a the media profile xml, and where it is located system/etc or vendor/etc ill take a look. Personally, if @cstark27 removed slo-mo entirely, in favor of anything in the world or nothing it all, id be good with it. Its janky anyways.

Do you mean HDR+ enhanced, or you typical zero shutter lag HDR+? I can shoot ~10 photos with no lag in zero shutter lag HDR+ mode in v3.5 on Note8.
Thanks for all your work, by the way, I love how stable your version is on Note8, and slow shutter is a gamechanger.

ZSL HDR+ (I also meant to say the photos were taken maybe half a second apart, right after moving the phone slightly so focus and exposure had to readjust - or quick photos of my moving child). I really am not a fan of LG's camera performance. Viewfinder FPS is pretty bad too, for a 2017 flagship... but oh well.

Thanks for the perspective from the Note 8. I tested one of my older versions on my coworkers S8, and even just panning it around the office it seemed pretty smooth and quicker than on the V30 but I didn't play with it extensively. :good: I've been curious how other phones did with the port.

Top notch performance on Note8. Portrait works in front and back. Slow motion still kills the app, but you must already know that. Thanks again for all your work.

@cstark27 grazie per il duro lavoro che hai fatto e continui a fare per noi possessori di G6.
Ti scrivo dal mio LG-G6 H870 e sto usando la tua iltima versione di GCamv3.5. Nonostante credo le cose siano migliorate rispetto alla precedente versione, ho 2 appunti da farti. 1)ho ancora problemi con le foto il LL. Mi virano o verso il verde oppure verso il magenta (dipende ovviamente dalle impostazioni che metto). 2. Nelle foto, svafiate volte non vengono messe a fuoco nella maniera corretta (esempio volto, gli occhi messi a fuoco e le labbra no. P.S. non mi riferisco alla Modalità ritratto ma al classico "punta e scatta" oppure selfie) Sono l'unico ad avere questo problema?
Cosa mi consigli? Grazie per il tempo che ci dedichi.
Ho anch'io il problema che dopo una serie di scatti l'applicazione si arresta.

Google Translate to the rescue

Thank you for the hard work you have done and continue to do for us G6 owners.
I am writing from my LG-G6 H870 and I am using your latest version of GCamv3.5. Although I think things have improved compared to the previous version, I have 2 notes to make you. 1) I still have problems with the LL photos. They turn me either towards green or towards magenta (obviously depends on the settings I put). 2. In the photos, svafiate times are not focused in the correct way (example face, eyes focused and lips no PS PS I do not refer to the portrait mode but the classic "point and shoot" or selfie) I am the unique to having this problem?
What do you suggest me? Thank you for your time.
I also have the problem that after a series of shots the application stops.

I'm going to skip "LG G6 Color Fix" in the code if Slow Shutter option is also enabled, in the next release.

I'm not too sure what you mean about focus. Try to tap to focus on a face, or use HDR+ Enhanced - it is usually sharper. If you tap to focus, focus will be locked until you restart the app, change cameras, or modes (a bug).

Is there any way to use this apps on a Xiaomi A1?
The A1 has 2 rear-cameras (normal, tele) and 1 front camera, but too bad the 2nd rear camera is not shown with " Camera2Test app".
I installed both the 'normal' and 'wide' cstark27-Gcam, but only the 'normal' is working.
Thanks!

    Disclaimer
    I am not a developer but I have tried my best to create a port that has most of the basics working on my LG V30. I cannot promise I can fix any bugs for other devices but if I have time, I can try to look into some. This version is based off Scrubber's [4PDA] and uses information I've learned from using and looking at Arnova8G2's, BSG's and others versions. All their work is much appreciated and is the only thing that makes this possible.

    Introduction
    What is Google Camera (AKA GCam)?

    Google Camera is the camera app for the Google Nexus and Google Pixel phones. It is not designed or intended to be run on other phones.

    What is HDR+?

    Basic: HDR+ is Google's proprietary image processing routine, and is more than just traditional "HDR' modes. HDR+ employs image stacking to control exposure, and also to preserve details, reduce noise, increase sharpness, etc. It is an all-in-one package.

    Advanced: https://ai.googleblog.com/2014/10/hdr-low-light-and-high-dynamic-range.html

    Google Camera Features

    Pixel 1
    • Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL) HDR+ - The Pixel 1 introduced ZSL HDR+ which means when you open the camera, the system utilizes the Hexagon DSP to constantly buffer frames and marks the time slot of when you pressed the shutter button.
      * -- Quote from Marc Levoy via The Verge:
      "The moment you press the shutter it's not actually taking a shot — it already took the shot," says Levoy. "It took lots of shots! What happens when you press the shutter button is it just marks the time when you pressed it, uses the images it's already captured, and combines them together."
      It's a major usability improvement on the HDR+ mode in last year's Nexus 6P and 5X. "What used to happen last year is you'd press the shutter button and you'd get this little circle going around while it captured the images you need for the burst; now it's already captured those," says Levoy. "And that's big, because that means that you can capture the moment you want."
      * -- https://www.theverge.com/2016/10/18/13315168/google-pixel-camera-software-marc-levoy

    Pixel 2
    • Portrait Mode - Simulates bokeh for improved subject separation from the background. The front camera of the Pixel 2 only provides Portrait Mode when a human face is detected, and the rear camera can work on an object, an animal, a human, etc because it uses information from the Dual Pixel PDAF sensor to detect depth. Google Camera ports for non-Pixel phones can NOT do this so all ports for non-Pixel phones utilize the front camera technique for both front & rear (which means all ports for non-Pixel phones can only properly apply bokeh when a human face is detected).
      * -- Advanced read: https://ai.googleblog.com/2017/10/portrait-mode-on-pixel-2-and-pixel-2-xl.html
    • Motion Photos - Provides short clips of moments before and after you take the photo.
      * -- Advanced read: https://ai.googleblog.com/2018/03/behind-motion-photos-technology-in.html

    Pixel 3



    This is how the V30's Camera ID's are laid out. My normal lens app uses ID 0 and 1. My wide lens app uses ID 1 and 2.
    • Camera 0 "LENS_FACING_BACK"
    • Camera 1 "LENS_FACING_FRONT"
    • Camera 2 "LENS_FACING_BACK" (wide angle)
    I cannot guarantee success on other devices, especially if the phone does not even report all cameras through the Camera2 API (use Camera2Test app to verify your device info). If you are on LineageOS, please consult your dev to see if they can alter the camera ID's to properly match LG stock roms, if my version does not work.

    -Black Level calculation adjusted to see if purple tint in shadows is fixed

    -Updated code of Settings Restart to newest version

    -Adjusted detection code for Hexagon DSP so mainly just LG's don't use it automatically

    cstark27 v3.8
    If you have issues, Clearing App Data is recommended. Open "Camera"> Settings>About>View App Settings Page>Storage>Clear Data

    LG G6 Lineage users can use the toggle in the wide angle APK to fix their camera ID issue. You must force close the app.

    -Renamed standard lens package name to avoid interference with other versions (uninstall your current version)
    -Set Use_Photos on by default
    -Ported Camera relaunch after going into Settings from namok/SerJo87/Arnova8G2 (no longer have to force close when changing a setting)
    -Changed Frame Count to have a faster setting (may be useful for photos of children)
    -Added toggle to remove Portrait Mode default zoom level


    cstark27 v3.7
    -Added Advanced>Disable ZSL Toggle (this switches between Pixel 2 HDR toggle and Nexus 6 No ZSL HDR toggle)

    -Added Advanced>Model so users can experiment with phone Models (only for the rear camera). You do not need to adjust this if you don't want to, the default setting is the same as before (AUTO).

    -Added Experimental>Use Hexagon DSP and set it to No by default. This used to be "auto", effectively, and on most Snapdragon phones it would be using the Hexagon DSP in previous versions. In my testing I have found better performance when taking multiple photos quickly, by turning this to "no". Let me know your results...


    cstark27 v3.6
    If you have issues, Clearing App Data is recommended. Open "Camera"> Settings>About>View App Settings Page>Storage>Clear Data

    LG G6 Lineage users can use the toggle in the wide angle APK to fix their camera ID issue. You must force close the app.

    -Added 5 Exposure Time settings for Adaptive Shutter Speed. "Super Slow" is the same as V3.5. "Very Slow" is about 2x faster and so on and so forth. On my phone "Slow" is not actually Slow and matches normal HDR+ Enhanced speed. But it may change depending on device so I left it.

    -Normal APK: Save HDR+ choice after going into Settings (credit Miniuser123)

    -Organized Settings>Advanced by grouping all HDR+ Enhanced stuff into a section. Changed a couple strings so they'd be translated to other languages.

    -Skip Color Fix if Adaptive Shutter is enabled

    -Removed Slow Motion menu item unless you have a LG G5, G6, V20, or V30. BUT, you can enable it in Settings>Experimental.

    -Wide APK: Change HDR+ Config to Taimen so ZSL (Zero Shutter Lag) is back, but I've defaulted HDR+ to Enhanced. This won't change until you clear app data or go into settings though.

    -Wide APK: Remove Slow Motion menu item


    cstark27 v3.5
    -Clearing App Data is recommended. Open "Camera"> Settings>About>View App Settings Page>Storage>Clear Data
    -Added Advanced>HDR+ Enhanced Portrait Mode : This forces Portrait Mode to use HDR+ Enhanced which will offer better dynamic range but you lose Zero Shutter Lag (Thanks Arnova8G2 for this cool trick)
    -Added Advanced>HDR+ Enhanced Adaptive Shutter Speed : This is the Slow Shutter mod from miniuser123. I would say this is "beta" for LG devices. I know on my V30 some tuning is needed to the parameters but I want your guys feedback first. It only affects HDR+ Enhanced. The shutter speed will slow down the darker your scene is. You probably want a tripod or something to prop your phone against, for best sharpness. In normal lighting the shutter speed seems to be the same as before so I don't think it would be a negative to leave this on - but it's your choice and needs testing.
    -Added LG G6 Lineage Camera ID Fix toggle to Wide Angle APK so there shouldn't need to be separate Lineage builds for G6 anymore
    -Optimizations courtesy of Arnova8G2


    cstark27 v3.4
    -Added Lens Blur Mode on side menu
    -Added Advanced>LG G6 Color Fix from cstark27 v3
    -Removed Zero Shutter Lag option from Wide Angle due to issue with very over-exposed highlights. Will be brought back when this issue is fixed.
    -Removed Disable ZSL toggle as it did not fix anything and caused more problems


    cstark27 v3.3
    -IMPORTANT: CLEAR APP DATA after installing. This version changes the configs a little bit so more problems may happen if you do not erase app data.
    -Fixed Wide Angle HDR+ Processing with Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL)
    -Improved Re-focus after touch to focus
    -Added JPEG Quality toggle
    -Added Disable ZSL Config: switch between Pixel ZSL or Nexus 6 No ZSL configs
    -Adjust look of settings and add About section from Arnova8G2

    LG G6 owners: There may still be a purple tint in shadows in low light when using HDR+ Enhanced. I am still working on a solution but it is hard to find without having the device. There are apps that provide a black level offset to correct this but in tests we have seen that only the first HDR+ Enhanced photo is usually purple tinted but remaining photos are fine. Tapping to set focus and exposure also seems to help. I would also try the "Disable ZSL" setting and see if that helps. Huge shoutout at Mefiboshet for all of his testing and letting me pester him with test versions all the time.

    2 Separate APK's (download both, they do not require each other though so you can use a different normal lens version if you want):
    Download Standard Lens + Front Cam cstark27_GCam_5.1.018_24_v3.3
    Download Wide Lens + Front Cam cstark27_GCam_5.1.018_24_wide_v3.3


    There is no model or config to set, you should be good to go after installing. But here is the setup:

    -Normal Lens APK Config:
    --LG G6
    ---Rear Model: Nexus 6 (shamu), Front Model: Huawei Nexus 6P (angler)
    --All other devices
    ---Rear Model: Pixel 2 XL (taimen), Front Model: Huawei Nexus 6P (angler)
    -Wide Lens APK Config:
    --LG G6
    ---Rear Model: Nexus 6P (angler), Front Model: Huawei Nexus 6P (angler)
    --LG G5, V20, V30
    ---Rear Model: Pixel 2 XL (taimen), Front Model: Huawei Nexus 6P (angler)


    cstark27 v3.1 standard and v3.2 wide
    -JPEG quality increased to 98% by default
    -Removed LG G6 Color Fix option hoping the model change fixes their color issues (you may Delete Data of the app)
    -HDR+ Parameters moved to Advanced menu

    cstark27 v3 wide angle beta 1 (with LG G6 LineageOS patch)
    -Separate APK based off cstark27 v3
    -Fix front camera crash
    -Change "config" to Nexus 6P (ZSL on the wide angle does not process HDR+ currently, so this ensures the user always gets HDR+ processing)

    cstark27 v3 wide angle alpha
    -Separate APK based off cstark27 v3
    -ALPHA version of wide angle support

    cstark27 v3
    -fix G6 video (and probably other Android 7.0 devices) thanks to Arnova8G2
    -add LG G6 Color Fix option under advanced thanks to Arnova8G2

    cstark27 v2.1
    -EXIF fix, thanks Arnova8G2
    -Enable HDR+ toggle by default
    -Uncheck camera:use_photos by default to increase stability (turn back on and test if you want. Enabling this makes it use Google Photos.)
    -Uncheck camera:enable_micro by default to increase stability (turn back on and test if you want. Enabling this enables Motion Photos for Oreo only(?)

    cstark27 v2
    -fixed video on Pixel configs for LG V30

    cstark27 v1
    -based off Scrubber's APK
    -forced model of front camera to Nexus 6P for proper HDR+ Processing and color (thanks BSG)
    -rear model is set to Taimen

    FAQ
    Q: I'm on Oreo and my device constantly reboots?
    A: Follow the steps in this post https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=77133433&postcount=1069

    Q: Do I need to change any settings?
    A: This mod is optimized for the LG G5, G6, V20, & V30 to run without changing any settings. Some settings in the Settings>Advanced menu will provide higher quality, with their own downsides. Experiment at your own will.

    Q: What devices does this work for?
    A: The normal (not wide angle) version should work fine on devices that have a decent Camera2 API support. Snapdragon Galaxy S8, Note 8, Nokia 6, Nokia 8, Essential PH-1, HTC U11, etc.

    Thanks To/Credits

    I modified san1ty's version to have the normal lens in all the modes. It installs separately from other versions. I have been busy and sick so haven't got much time to work on the project. On the G7, Night Sight is laggy and overall stability is still a bit weak. Play around with the Model etc in BSG Settings and see if something shows to be more stable and let us know (and what LG you have).

    Alright guys. Let's try this out. I have added my PayPal donation email to my profile. If you are able to help, anything is appreciated. I have not accepted donations in the past for my work except 1 or 2 days so if you've found use with my mod in the past and also want to show your thanks please consider donating.

    If I can get a LG G7, that would cover (7) LG devices to support. The G7's are pretty cheap these days, all things considered. About $300 USD. More than half off MSRP already. :eek:

    Thank you all for your consideration.

    If you have issues, Clearing App Data is recommended. Open "Camera"> Settings>About>View App Settings Page>Storage>Clear Data

    LG G6 Lineage users can use the toggle in the wide angle APK to fix their camera ID issue. You must force close the app.

    -Added 5 Exposure Time settings for Adaptive Shutter Speed. "Super Slow" is the same as V3.5. "Very Slow" is about 2x faster and so on and so forth. On my phone "Slow" is not actually Slow and matches normal HDR+ Enhanced speed. But it may change depending on device so I left it.

    -Normal APK: Save HDR+ choice after going into Settings (credit Miniuser123)

    -Organized Settings>Advanced by grouping all HDR+ Enhanced stuff into a section. Changed a couple strings so they'd be translated to other languages.

    -Skip Color Fix if Adaptive Shutter is enabled

    -Removed Slow Motion menu item unless you have a LG G5, G6, V20, or V30. BUT, you can enable it in Settings>Experimental.

    -Wide APK: Change HDR+ Config to Taimen so ZSL (Zero Shutter Lag) is back, but I've defaulted HDR+ to Enhanced. This won't change until you clear app data or go into settings though.

    -Wide APK: Remove Slow Motion menu item

    2 Separate APK's (download both, they do not require each other though so you can use a different normal lens version if you want):
    Download standard rear + front cam: cstark27_GCam_5.1.018_24_v3.6

    Download wide rear + front cam: cstark27_GCam_5.1.018_24_wide_v3.6

    Hey guys,

    You helped raise 85% of my initial goal, so I upped my budget to order an almost new G7 for $340 which will make me more likely to try to use it daily over the Pixel 2. I appreciate all your help! Hopefully it will arrive by the end of next week.

    Thanks:
