Black screen where? Camera? Gallery? Google photos? What settings? On what device?
I have a black screen momentarily while hdr is processing in Google photos (indicator is spinning and notification has progress)... I've installed this as a regular app, a system app, and a system app in priv-app (not at the same time), and it's worked fine every time with nearly all the settings tried. Nexus 6p ABC rom.
I'm assuming you've tried clearing data, uninstalling, etc...

Facing black screen when render HDR
It's because this new version unfortunately reintroduced the Google Photos integration that causes a black screen until the HDR picture is finished rendering. Personally it's a dealbreaker for me, but some people must like it for the developer to have added it back in.

I'm just sticking with the previous release because it doesn't have this issue. You can do the same if you're bothered by the rendering black screen.

Base on Google Camera 5.2

2. Add Lens Blur mode.

Works fine on Nexus 6P 8.1
Maybe you can add flashable version, for making it as system app ?

He say replace apk signature is what? I tried you zip but still same with install apk as normal

What exactly is the problem you are having?
Changing the APK signature is not clear to me either.
The zip above is not my zip

Ok, I have tried myself, but somehow it did not fix the black screen bug even I set the mod as system app with V7.4
I have succeed with V7.2 before
Normally there should be a HDR+ process info showed on the bottom in Google Photos preview, not a black screen.
I will post an update if I get it to work.

An update work fine on my first-gen Pixel XL.
But unfortunately slowmo at 240fps still very-very laggy.
Hope there will be some fix for that, cause that bug really spoils the camera experience :(

But still thank You for supporting the mod, btw.

Someone mentioned it before, but it's due to the camera recording 240fps in 1080p while only 720 is supported. The stock app does 120fps at 1080p and 240fps at 720p. Personally, I don't use slow motion very much, and when I do I usually have more time to set it up, so I switch to the stock app.

Great mod! It's the one that works best on my Pixel XL!

Will you include mod customisation options from BSG? Your standard settings are noisier than BSG's or GCmod5, we could customise image quality to our taste with me settings. And it's also because I like it geek... :p

Thank you for your work!

Working great on my OG Pixel XL !!!!
Don't mind for the black screen while processing HDR+ for 1 second or 2 !!! Can't figure why everyone is going nuts because of this...
Also, just installed as normal app and defaulted every camera action to this app!!! My main camera app now!!

Does this mod still apply to oreo based roms or is there an easier alternative like a module. And is the heavily based of 5x files? If so, is there a 6p based one?

When my 6P is processing a few shots of a group picture in a row... And the women want approval of the images... It literally takes 15+ seconds to render at times. You've lost the groups interest by that point. Even a single shot can take 5 seconds or more when it's thermal throttling

I won't update to the new version because it went back to Google Photos for rendering. At least right now I can preview the shot

Yeah, same. The black loading screen for HDR that comes with the Google Photos integration is a dealbreaker for me. It renders the camera useless in most situations.

The Pixel has more raw power than the 6P, so no problems on that side...

    Hello N6P users, I succeed in getting the ZSL HDR+ works on Nexus 5X, as Nexus 6P has the same camera hardware and better SoC, I'd like to ask someone test my mod, to see if the function works.

    What's ZSL HDR+?
    ZSL = zero shooting lag, means you won't get camera freeze after taking a HDR+ auto shoot. it is build-in the Google Camera 4.2 and only works on Pixel phones, now I force the app using Pixel configuration, it should perform the same ZSL HDR+ shooting on Nexus 6P.
    Details about the ZSL HDR+.

    ZSL-enhanced For 8.0+ only, ZSL HDR+ For 7.1.1+ only, Android 7.0 users please use NoZSL version.
    APK was signed by ZipSign using my own signature, it won't replace your default camera app, it will install as a normal app, with a different camera icon.

    Last Update

    03/24/2018 V7.4
    Base on Google Camera 5.2
    1. Bring back HDR+ on Nexus 5X/6P.
    2. Add Lens Blur mode.
    3. EIS should be back to normal on Pixel 1, as EIS will be disabled with 4K quality with official version.
    4. Active Google photos combination to view results again on enhanced version.
    Details and download link for V7.4

    01/02/2018 V7.3.1
    Bug fix version
    1. Fix abort HDR+ process FC problem.
    2. Fix viewfinder flickering issue.
    3. Add ZSL version for Android 7.1+, the previous one should be ZSL-enhanced version.
    Bugs:
    1. smart-burst always mark the first photo (ZSL-enhanced version).
    2. Autofocus won't work after manually focus, need lock then unlock the AF/AE lock.

    12/31/2017 V7.3
    Current the new version is only for Android 8.0+, will release the updated version for Android 7.0.
    1. Add the most wanted feature, Portrait mode (use Pixel 2's front lens software method, it needs a human face shows up to work.).
    2. Remove silence feedback service, crash report service, and the broken Help menu, for faster app launch.
    3. Remove Google photos combination, motion photo still works but you need to view it through Google photos manually.
    I have named it wrong and this one should be the ZSL-enhanced version, sorry for the wrong package errors on Android 7.1.2 :eek:
    Details and download link for V7.3.1


    11/06/2017 V7.2.0
    This is bug fix version, not only for Pixel 2016, everyone who is using enhanced version should grab this update.
    1. Fix crash issue on Pixel 2016.
    2. Fix provider author name mistake leads to a thumbnail generation issue.
    3. Motion pictures should be saved with a file name "MVIMG-####-##" right now, it became "IMG-####-##" in V7.1 version, which was wrong, this might mess the G photos when index media files.
    Enhanced version users should get the experimental2017 library now.
    Sorry, after some more test it seems experimental2017 is not necessary, just install the new version it will be ok.
    About the Lens photo editor, it will be available after the picture upload to Google cloud.

    10/19/2017 V7.1.0
    1. Based on the last Google Camera 5.1.014, add Pixel 2016 phones support (need test).
    2. Video 60FPS mode with EIS FC bug Fixed.
    3. Motion photos for Pixel 2016 phones.
    4. Micro video (Motion photos) EIS use gyro sensor enabled for Pixel (it was only activated on Pixel XL), need feedback.
    5. Update icon support adapted icon and regular icon.
    6. Disable Motion photos and G-photo integration for Android 7.1.
    -- Now there is a new ZSL-enhanced version for Motion photos, G-photos combine, diet smart-burst on Android 8.x.
    -- NOZSL and ZSL version will perform the old way while added new face retouching.
    -- Bugs: after shooting photos, review it and you will see a black screen, need to wait for HDR+ process, I don't know it is normal or just hardware limited.

    So I tried this out for the first time recently on my 6P, and there was one issue that kept me from leaving my stock Google Camera app for this one. In the stock app when I take an HDR picture, I can see the picture as it's being processed. In this app I only see black until the processing is complete. When taking multiple pictures the problem is exacerbated, naturally, as I find myself staring at numerous black screens for quite a while as they each process.

    Is this the behavior of the app on Pixel devices, or is it just how the modded APK performs on non-Pixel devices like the 6P?

    Black screen bug could be fixed with a complicated method, which I don't suggest, it needs platform signature for the app to wake up google photo service.

    New version V7.3 won't have that issue as it disabled G-photos combination. get it here.

    Sorry for let you guys wait for a long time, Gcam 5.3 drops support for Nexus phones totally(HDR+ profile, common functions), I managed to make it works only in limited JPEG mode, but things does not go through with old method.

    Now I have a thought that maybe it will work with Pie, as custom Pie rom for Nexus 5X was out, I will give it a try.
