Both options make no difference for me. Sabre_Allowed was already enabled. Disabling and again enabling leads to no change...
I've got little to no experience in the developer options of the app, but I noticed that resetting the developer options to their default values does solve the delay problem.

Does anyone know if there's an easier way to compare to .XML files than to manually look in the app?

I'll try to have a look, later, and see what could possibly cause the issues to some of you. Being not affected myself, I will then share a series of test files that some of you will need to test, one by one, until we find what caused those delays when switching modes.

Well then, I really have no idea how to solve it, I'm sorry. I'd suggest you stick to the xml file provided by another user which seems to solve your issue, or simply reset all the Dev settings back to "default" when using mine, if it helps. Wish I could help more, but without having the issue on my device, it's kinda hard to fix it...

Thanks for trying. I might look into the dev options more later.

Found the problem! Manually toggled every developer setting until the problem was fixed. Camera.cutout_display was the thing that was moving the camera viewfinder and making the delay.

The latest day and night configs with the cutout developer option disabled is attached.

Great news and well done! I would have never expected this setting to cause any trouble... And it's quite weird that this dev setting could have different consequences on similar devices equipped with the same ROM.

You're running Oxygen 12, right? I'm on Pixel experience 12 plus, rooted with magisk, mainly for some of the pixel features and having unlimited original quality upload for Google photos for free.

GREAT and well done!!! My issues with LMC 8.4 and stock, plain vanilla OOS 12 without root are solved! No more lags when switching from mode to the other... With the camera.cutout_display_day.xml i have no more lags. Thanks a lot!

And the camera.cutout_display_day.xml bases on the NICKAMPRO 2.4?

Cheers!

Here is V2.5 of my custom XML profiles for Google Camera Mod LMC R9, with the following improvements:

- Fixes the infamous 'Lag' when switching between different modes (THANKS to @smorpaket for finding the culprit in the Dev settings and to @Clark789 as well for testing several beta files)
- (Much) Improved Noise Reduction, especially for dark areas / shadows / night shots, which results in cleaner pictures!
- 'Pro' Mode RamPatcher has now been configured, for those who use it.

🌟 Download: https://ufile.io/tvq438qk 💥

Cheers! 🤘

[ Edit: I noticed a force-close of the app when processing a shot from the Ultra-Wide angle from V2.5 'standard' version. Is anyone else affected as well? If so, I will update this post with a fix. ]

Yes, for me too. When i switch to wide and take a shot, the app closes near end of processing. When i restart the app, it closes again. Only when I start the app a second time, it runs again. No image was saved. Thanks a lot for your support!

It actually has nothing to do with the wife camera, but more so it being the 3rd camera. In my case, the zoom camera in the .XML config is the wide camera (I don't bother so didn't change it). Thus for me, the zoom camera is crashing, not the wide.

Edit: Clearing strorage in the camera app did solve the crash for me. Maybe the same for you.

What do you mean with clearing storage in the camera? I didn't see this option... I only see the Device storage option under standard settings...

    LMC R10 Google Cam Mod (V8.4.300 Base) - Dev is finally back, for now! Still my favorite mod... :)

    Changelog:
    - Redesigned the menu and its styles, a bit of the interface.
    - Smashed the sessions on the lenses (I stole the code from @md_shamim12)
    - Fix resolution on the front camera
    - Added focus reset timeout to Tweaks LMS
    - Focus slider and shutter slider separated into different buttons
    - Added disable button
    - Added new options to the Test patcher.

    - Added new Color Transforms
    - Added more values to shutter priority.
    - Added 3 frames per button
    - Updated LDR patcher
    - All config update

    Corrections:
    - Fixed work on Xiaomi 12
    - Leica and OIS buttons without restart (I stole the idea from @xenius9gcc)
    - Removed some parameters from the lens settings BUT they are in the pro patcher.
    - Autofocus code changed.
    - The app is even faster.
    - Many other fixes

    🌟 Custom XML NiCkAM8PRO V2.6 (APK + XML): https://ufile.io/i4vnl1fu 💥
    [PW: NiCkAM8PRO-for-XDA ]

    Depending on the scene (outdoor, indoor, nightshot / bright light...), you are avised to enable / disable the 'Exposure Compensation' toggle (the blue-white sun at the top of the viewfinder. 'OFF' will make the overall scene Brighter). It is also preferable (whatever GCam mod you use) to manually touch the screen on your 'zone of interest' before taking the shot.

    Cheers.

    // Updated the links with @smorpaket 's fix in the Dev-Settings, for those affected by the issue. Thanks buddy! \\

    ** LMC R11 Google Cam Mod Update (V8.4.300 Base) **

    Changelog:
    • Tool tips, styles, menus and much more updated, black theme for night mode
    • A second value has been added for all patcher parameters that have an on or off key
    • The unlocking of noise models is divided into modules and displayed in the Noise Models section
    • Front interface selection
    • Fix HDR Raw divided by modules
    • Corrections
    • Fixed the enabled / disabled merge selection dependency. Saber cup
    • Returned most of the removed parameters
    • Returned Portrait mode in the session and added all values for the slow motion video
    • Fixed work on Redmi 9, Realme 8, RN8P, partially Galaxy M52 and possibly others
    • New settings added

    🌟 Custom XML NiCkAM8PRO V2.7 (APK + XML): https://ufile.io/2uqmt0n0 💥
    [PW: NiCkAM8PRO-for-XDA ]

    Among the modifications, 'Color Correction' was changed from 'IMX682' to 'IMX 686', which results in a bit more vivid shots (the color channels look slightly brighter). It may please some, not everyone I guess. If you prefer less pop in your shots, just revert back to the previous settings.

    Depending on the scene (outdoor, indoor, nightshot / bright light...), you are avised to enable / disable the 'Exposure Compensation' toggle (the blue-white sun at the top of the viewfinder. 'OFF' will make the overall scene Brighter). You may also get better results (whatever GCam mod you use) if you manually touch the screen on your 'zone of interest' before taking the shot.

    My Suggestions:
    > INDOOR & CLOSE-UP Shots: 'Exposure Compensation' ON (Default)
    > OUTDOOR Shots: 'Exposure Compensation' OFF

    Cheers.

    Really appreciate you doing all the work with gcam! Dev option camera.cutout still needs to be disabled for some of us, so I'll attach a fixed XML file for that :))

    🌟 Custom Profiles from NiCkAM8PRO V1.1: https://ufile.io/rk2kypne 💥

    PW: NiCkAM8PRO-for-XDA (yes, I decided to set some password to limit, to some extent, the 're-share' of it outside of the XDA community).

    >>> MAKE SURE YOU UNINSTALL ANY OTHER GCAM MOD 'SNAP' VERSION BEFORE YOU INSTALL THIS ONE. <<<

    This is still a Work-In-Progress so please refrain from complaining without bringing anything useful for this project and for the community in return.

    There might be some limitations, of course, but anyone who wants to try it can just play with it and customize it their own way. All sensors work fine, including the 'IR' one. Face detection seems to work, as well as Face beauty (at least for selfie cam), can record videos [email protected] with both OIS & EIS with back cam, night mode works ok too.

    I included 2 custom profiles with this release. The second one allows you to record at 48MP from all back 3 sensors (UW, Main & Tele) and 20MP from the 'iR' sensor. However, all this is achieved through interpolation (ie. 'artificial upscaling'). AFAIK, it doesn't use the real sensor resolution, but from my few experiments, you still manage to get a bit more detailed pictures (and possibly a bit more 'noise' as well) compared to 12MP shots.

    I'd advise you disable AWB (auto white balance) through the Quick Panel menu when shooting under daylight (for cooler/bluer tones), and enable AWB for nightshots (warmer tones).

    Cheers!

    Hello OnePlus Addicts,

    Here is a Custom-Made SUPER-PACK of some of the newest Google Camera Mods available out there, which contains the work of several developers such as Greatness (Rakin), B-S-G, P.Z.D, MTSL, LMC and Wichaya.

    Please, keep in mind that I am not an app developer, myself, just an enthousiastic end-user happy to share the good stuff!

    🌟 DOWNLOAD (APKs + Custom Profiles): https://ufile.io/dmt5n5jw 🌟
    ( PW: NiCkAM8PRO-for-XDA )

    [ LMC R11 is currently the latest customized mod of this Super-Pack ]

    >>> The included XML configuration profiles are made for ONEPLUS 8 PRO ONLY! Using them on another device may result in some serious bugs, crashes, and it will definitely not bring you the same user experience... <<<

    1) Just download the file above, unzip it, then install the apk file of your choice on your device.

    2) Extract the appropriate xml configuration file, as well as its folder, to your phone internal storage.

    3) Then, just start the app, give the necessary privileges, double-click on the lower black area near the 'shutter' button of the app, it should allow you to load custom profiles. Select my xml, press ok, done! :)

    Some of these mods come with Face Detection, Face Retouch (both Front & Back sensors), great color reproduction, low noise, excellent details (especially on the main back sensor), FHD & 4K videos @ 30/60FPS with OIS/EIS stabilization, Night Shots, Astro-Photography, Portrait and more...

    However, there is still no Distortion Correction/Fix on Wide-Angle sensor, on any GCam mod I have tried sor far actually. This might come in the future, but it seems to be quite hard for devs to implement in their respective mods. This can be fixed by some apps in post-editing anyway...

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There are some 'hidden' shortcuts in some of these GCam mods! For example, with Greatness, P.Z.D, MTSL and LMC, you can access the (very useful) Exposure/ISO menu by long-pressing the circle 'gallery' button on the lower-right of the main app screen, which will provide you with a choice of ISO settings, as well as Exposure choices. The lower the ISO, the better the final picture quality, but it will take more time to 'capture' your image. The same goes for Exposure; the longer the time, the better your image (and the lower iso at the same time), but you may have to be steady if you go lower than 1/10s.

    A long-press on the Camera-Switch button (on Greatness Mod), on the lower-left of the main app screen, will directly bring you to the App Settings.

    Double-Press the viewfinder itself will zoom 2x to what you want to shoot, and will display the Zoom Bar at the bottom, so you can finely adjust it!

    There is also a 'Sunset' shortcut on the main screen/viewfinder (Greatness Mod), just above the 3 back sensors, which should theoretically bring better color reproduction and lighting to your sunsets.

    Also, one personal advice when using some, if not all of these mods: You will get BETTER EXPOSURE as well as LIGHTER SHADOWS when selecting your focus zone MANUALLY (within limits of your focus zone of interest, obviously). This goes for Daylight shots, as well as Nightshots, and another advice would be to try to select either a Dark area of your image (when shooting in daylight) OR one of the Brightest zones (for example, some streetlights at night), and then take the shot. The App should then do a better job at adjusting your Exposure, Contrast and Shadows, and this will greatly reduce risks of Under-Exposing or Over-Exposing your shots. When taking snapshots of people, in case the app can't detect their face, make sure you select it manually, you will definitely get brighter, more detailed skin results. It may be one extra-step, but I personally found out that it was usually worth doing it!

    🌸🌞 NiCkAM8PRO V6.4 Custom Profiles (for OP8Pro) - B.S.G Google Camera 🌞🌸

    😻 Hello XDA buddies and GCAM lovers 🔥

    A new version of B.S.G Google Camera mod was released ('GV1u'), which fixes some annoying bug with our device (Changelog: Fixed a bug when saving photos on devices whose raw format resolution is not 4/3 or 16/9, like Redmi Note8-9 Pro, OP8Pro and others).

    🌟DOWNLOAD (APK + Custom Profiles): https://ufile.io/2xx4arec 🌟

    It is advised to completely UNINSTALL the previous version (clear cache and data before you proceed), then install this new V8.1 "GV1u" edition.

    Of course, as always, this new App version comes with my own custom 'Profiles', available in 3 different flavors ('Fine', 'HQ' and 'Night'), depending on what mix of Quality / Speed you wish to achieve. They are the result of some very personal choices regarding saturation, contrast, colors, brightness, exposure...), so in case they do not match yours, just take them as a base and adapt them to your needs and preferences.

    💖 NiCkAM8PRO V6.4 Custom Profiles for B.S.G - Changelog & Advice:

    ✅ 3 Custom Profiles based on different Exposure Time ('Speed') and HDR frames (Warning: Be STEADY when using 'Night' profile and for 'HQ' mode -in low light- as well!).
    ✅ Optimized White Balance and Noise Profiles for our OnePlus 8 Pro, for all lenses.
    ✅ RamPatcher areas have been carefully set for natural results, yet slightly enhanced saturation/contrasts/details.
    ✅ Face Retouch (Level-1) and Face Detect set 'ON' for all lenses, Back & Front.
    ✅ Astrophotography works fine, just remember to set a Timer in order to avoid blurry pics!
    ✅ Front camera settings are set for natural colors (i.e: with saturation kept at reasonable levels), still with some details. However, keep in mind that any GCAM app will take pictures at 4MP only (instead of 16MP with stock app) when using the Front Lens of our OP8 Pro (a limitation that cannot be currently overcome).
    ✅Exposure was willingly kept at reasonable levels, which allows for truer, more realistic pictures, closer to what you really see, and maintains more details in the pictures at the same time (less blown-out zones). If that's not your preference, simply adjust Exposure Compensation in the Settings > Modules, or in post-processing.
    ✅ Developer settings are carefully selected, to offer as many functions as possible for our device, with some good stability.
    ✅ AWB is automatically turned ON when using 'Night' profile. If using any other profile in dark / night situation, or under some artificial lights, just remember to set Auto White-Balance 'ON' to avoid unpleasant results.
    ✅ Social Share functions are activated on all profiles, for easy file sharing, as well as being a useful indicator for when your pictures have been fully processed by the app. Let the app finish its processing work before switching to another lens!
    ✅ In some situation (i.e under some harsh lighting conditions), it is advised to manually set your point of focus, as well as your exposure, using the dedicated slider.

    ⚠️🙏This custom profiles pack is a result of countless hours of work, so please, do not share it anywhere else without permission, and even more importantly, give credit to its creator. Thank you, and have fun with it! 🙏⚠️

    A tiny little update for 'B.S.G GCam profiles pack' that might fix some noise artefacts in some low-light scenarios. If you are fine with previous V5.1, then it's fine, if not, you could try this one :)

    Hello buddies,

    Currently in a short trip but I have some good news for you; Greatness developer managed to publish a new version of his Google Camera Mod, oriented toward the OnePlus 7, 8 and 9 series, with AUX support (yes, Wide & Tele work perfectly on it!), Face Retouch as well, low noise, nice picture, OIS stabilization when taking shots, and much more...

    Greatness Modified Google Camera V8.2, with NiCkAM8PRO V1.2 Profile: https://ufile.io/7z7fgpch

    1) MAKE SURE YOU FULLY UNINSTALL any other Google Camera app that you may have on your phone before installing this one. ALSO COPY THE 'CONFIGS8' FOLDER in my zip file inside of your (preexisting or not) GCAM folder of your phone storage.

    2) First time you start the App, grant the needed privileges, then go to the Settings, Advanced, scroll down then select XML Configs, and click the top option with the yellow sign, which should allow the app to 'read/write' custom profile configuration files on your device.

    3) Go back to the main GCam screen, then DOUBLE-PRESS the black area AROUND the SHUTTER button, this will allow you to LOAD my XML configuration file.

    4) Select it, then ENJOY this great mod!

    Took me some time to set this one up, but here it is... Hope you guys will enjoy it as much as I do! :)
