    This version doesn't have working viewfinder nor taking pictures, while the previous one did. I'm running LOS 15.1 on OP5

    Suggested settings for OP6 would be appreciated. Currently I'm just using the default settings. I would love to be able to disable the focus slider, are you able to add a title for this please?

    Getting "App not installed" error on OP5T latest official LOS nightly. Removed pre-installed camera app with titanium backup and rebooted. (Urnyx05, 2019-03-01)

    Edit: Fixed, google play store automatically downloaded a version from the play store since I was just setting up my phone from scratch. Sorry

    I'm on 5T with magisk+libs. It seems that ever since we started having newer gcam versions (beyond Pixel2Mod/Pixel3Mod) -- no matter what I do there is significant lag between when I press the button to take a picture and when it's actually taken. Sometimes 4-5 seconds or more. Other times I wait and it won't take a picture.

    Also, without enabling "Auto Exposure (use camera2api)" - pictures are overexposed about 50% of the time. With enabling auto expose -- the app sometimes crashes when taking a picture. Frustrating.
    Any idea?

    Hdr+ enhanced needs some time for processing my friend. But the quality is very good.

    Is it better to use stock camera for selfie pictures?

    Don't know if it's me but when I use the modded GCAM and zoom in to take a photo, the photo gets very pixelated. Am I missing something, like a Magisk module? Because I have a Magisk Module installed. It gets so bad the photos basically become useless and I can't figure out a way to fix it.

      Google Camera Mod for OnePlus 5 (cheeseburger) and 5T (dumpling)

      1. Camera HAL Confusion
      a. Camera HAL Basics
      • First, let's understand what a camera HAL is. A camera HAL is what allows a ROM to "talk to" the camera hardware; without it, the camera would be non-functional. Think of the camera HAL as the steering wheel and pedals of a car. The steering wheel/pedals allow for control of the internal components of the vehicle by providing an external interface for the driver (the ROM) to make use of the internal components.
      • At present, the source code of the camera HAL included in OxygenOS has not been released by OnePlus. Instead, OnePlus has compiled that source code and shipped it on the OnePlus 5/5T as a BLOB (Binary Large OBject). This has been a major setback for custom ROM developers because having access to the camera HAL source would make porting the stock OnePlus Camera to a custom ROM a much easier endeavour.
      b. Camera HAL, Google Camera Mod and Root Requirements
      • The latest releases of the mod require you to be rooted (as you mandatorily need to install DotFix, which contains a modified camera HAL compatible with the latest releases) or the pictures that you click will come out with pink/purple/green tint on them, or will have a dotted pattern on them, or the camera might not work at all. So if you're rooted, then you're good to go. However, if you're unrooted (and prefer staying that way), then you can still use an specific version of the mod which works fine (with a few issues/restrictions, of course). All the downloads for rooted as well as non-rooted users are in the next post in the thread (post # 2).
      2. Known Bugs and Workarounds
      [Unrooted Only] Dotted Pattern Overlay
      • Issue - A dotted pattern overlay is visible in the HDR+ pictures (when completely zoomed in)
      • Resolution - You have to root, install DotFix as well as the recommended version for rooted users from point 3
      [Unrooted Only] Front Camera HDR+/Portrait Mode Non Operational/Captures Distorted Pink/Purple/Green Lines
      • Issue - Front camera captures distorted pink/purple/green lines while using HDR+ or Portrait Mode
      • Resolution - You have to root, install DotFix as well as the recommended version for rooted users from point 3
      [Rooted Only] HDR+ Front Camera Pictures Restricted to 4.0 Megapixels
      • Issue - HDR+ pictures that are clicked with the front camera are restricted to 4.0 megapixels, even though the maximum resolution of 15.9 megapixels is selected for the front camera under settings
      • Resolution - None available yet; details of why this is the case are mentioned in this post
      [Both] Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL) Non Operational
      • Issue - Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL) doesn't work
      • Resolution - None available yet
      [Both] DotFix Magisk Module Incompatible with Audio Mods
      • Issue - Some audio mods interfere with the DotFix Magisk module due to which they don't work as intended
      • Resolution - Uninstall the audio mods or try setting SELinux to permissive using SELinux Switch from this post of mine.
      More troubleshooting tips and tricks are present here and here. You can also read the Telegram channel's FAQ here.
      3. Important Notes and Links
      a. Important Notes
      • Everytime you change a settings, make sure you force-close and swipe it away from recents, and then restart the app so that the new settings are applied correctly. A sure shot way to make sure the settings have applied is to restart your phone.

      https://mega.nz/#!1nYBiSoT!eoHmomdHQ73REF4OnyRd_e7-ZoUlspC6pFVpgflu5Lo

      KNOWN BUGS:
      - Sometimes, slow motion doesn't work
      - Photobooth doesn't work
      - It may crash on different devices from OP5/5T
      - Viewfinder lags on OP5/5T
      56
      I realized this was never posted in this thread, so for those of you who might be wondering why Arnova8G2 has been missing in action for sometime now, it's because he met with a motorcycle accident and he's in the hospital, where smartphones and other portable electronic devices are forbidden. The accident was a major one and he's started to use the wheelchair now and hopefully with rehabilitation/physiotherapy, he'll be able to walk soon. Let's keep him in our thoughts and pray for his speedy recovery.
