Is there a camera ID for selfie where the main sensor is used in 16mp instead of 64mp?

I'd like to know this too. I tried all IDs but it seems like only 7 works. I'd rather the pixel binned 16mp instead of the full 64mp sensor.

PS I had to set Back Camera 4 to "6" in order for slow motion to work with the 64mp camera. It's not proper slow mo though. Anybody know how to enable >= 120fps in gcam? Stock cam is good but slow mo doesn't have sound it seems where as in gcam it does.

How bad is the distortion on ultra wide angle camera on Gcam? I personally don't mind some distortion as long as it has better colors and detail. Does anyone mind posting a sample Gcam UWA photo?

Here you go. Taken from the same position. Gcam actually takes a wider fov. If you zoom in with gcam to have the same fov it shouldn't have distortion then.

Thanks!
May I ask what this is?

From celsoazevedo.com:
Sabre is a merge method created by Google that improves photo quality on some modes. Some call it "super resolution" because of the sharpness/detail improvements. It's used by Google for Night Sight, but some GCam mods also use it for zoomed photos and HDR+ Enhanced. Works with the RAW10 format (other RAW formats may result in black photos).
Sometimes Sabre isn't supported by all cameras sensors (eg: non-Sony sensors) and Google Camera will crash after taking a picture. In this case, the only solution is to disable Sabre (only available on some mods) and restart the app.

Sono un nuovo possessore di Z7Pro.come posso migliorare gli scatti con Gcam? Ho letto che bisogna modificare l'IDma non riesco. Le foto con la cam stabilizzata hanno risoluzione 16mp e non 64, why?

Was just browsing on the Zentalk forums and read this thread about the selfie cam in social media apps. It details that the wide angle lens is what is used by these apps and not the main camera. This isn't a problem with photos but for videos (particularly for video calls like skype, facebook messenger, live streaming etc) this is a huge problem. An Asus rep/mod in that thread said there's nothing that can be done as they've made the decision based on the main camera sensor generating too much heat when taking videos. However, if that was true then why can you use it for video in rear camera mode (and hence circumvent this limitation albeit having an upside down image)?

Asus should at least give the option to the user as to which camera to set as the default front cam much like how you can edit the camera ids here on gcam. Quite a disappointing oversight from Asus imo. Perhaps one of the brilliant devs out there can somehow delve into the build/rom and change the default front cam setting?

Can anyone suggest how to set this one up? If possible, please guide which one to tick in order to improve the best image quality as I have just switched to this phone a few days ago and not really impress with the photo quality even compared with my old ROG2....

Just download the apk file, install it, and load the config. This video might be useful.

    Hi there.
    First of all, thank you for the great work.
    I see that many updates came out in the meantime.
    Will you continue the porting? Or is there a version compatible with 7 pro that is updated in a regular basis?
    Thanks in advance.
    I'm currently working on porting gcam 8.1
    Stay tuned
