This is kinda work in progress port of Gcam with hdr+ for arm devices. it's based on google camera version 4.2.035.141213305-arm.

it needs camera api 2 enabled. you can enable it via flashing the zip I've attached or add below line into build.prop.

Code:
persist.camera.HAL3.enabled=1

Stock rom is preferred, but it should work on all roms as long as above requirement is met.


Google camera apk

Please let me know if auto/touch focus works or not. happy testing :good:

Requires TWRP for flashing zip. or root for manually editing build.prop

Nice! Works here.

But, I got some problems at my first test - Google Camera apk from OP link;
- Back camera resolution: in the app, the res are 12.1 (16:9) mpx, in face of the real 16mpx (4:3)
- Slow mode crashes every time
- Panorama seems don't run as well

Anyway, I feel the focus are, now, amazing! I had a Moto G5 - Cedric in the begginin of 2017. Now, I got the Montana, but, always the same problem: Strange focus. In macro, i mean.

Autofocus works great. Many thanks!

Good thanks, but there's one issue:
as soon as camera api 2 is enabled Whatsapp, OpenCamera, Moto Kamera report "media format is not supported" at recording video, guess there's a codec missing then.
No mather if stock or linageOS.
Only Footej Camera is able to record video. Anyone else?

Yea I'm not able to record video on the modded apk too, but I can record it using the stock camera,
what rom are you running ?

search in build.prop this line:

HTML:
camera.hal1.packagelist

put the package name of apps that are not working well with camera2api, like this:

HTML:
camera.hal1.packagelist=com.whatsapp,com.instagram.android,com.vsco.cam

the listed apps will use the old api

I can't record video with neither gcamera nor stock camera. I already delete the cache and data, but still doesn't work. What can I do?
PD: I have stock room
( Sorry for my English)

I didn't install that file ( enable_hal3.zip) because I don't know what it is and how to install it
Can someone teach me how to do it
(My cellphone isn't rooted)
