I'd prefer not, if you don't mind. Allowing mirrors could allow for potentially corrupted/modified files and I'd probably be held responsible if anything goes wrong.

Is there anything wrong with the provided link? If you can't access the website, make sure you momentarily turn your VPN off, then it should work.
Yep.....ufiles not works with me .... I will like gdrive

*LMC V14* Google Camera update: https://gofile.io/d/S3Rj0e

Changes for R14:

  • Material You for all versions of Android. *
  • Noise model from the system and noise model tuning. *
  • Disabled 70% of animations for speed.
  • Changed some default settings
  • More values for Lut Noise Fix (the higher the value, the more motion artifacts and less noise)
  • Changed default tone/gamma curves from version 8.6, sect by Cseus (smoother).

'Exposure Compensation' is turned ON by default, which lowers exposure considerably. Just turn it OFF (the 'Sun' symbol at the top of the viewfinder) if you need some exposure boost.

'Instant Capture' (HDRNet) is turned OFF by default, for higher quality shots. Just press the 'HDRNet' icon on the left side of the viewfinder if you need to activate it.

Don't forget to turn 'Auto White Balance' (AWB) ON if you capture shots in low light scenarios, artificial lighting and at night. Icon is at the top of the viewfinder.

Cheers!

Great camera mod.
The only problem I run into is that I post quite a lot of photos on google maps. Now the problem is that google maps doesn't recognize the pictures taken with this mod as .jpeg ? Any idea how I can solve that?

Thanks for the feedback. Following your post, I've been capturing this quick shot with the zoom lens ( https://ibb.co/QkPH8bd ), totally unedited. I published it on Google Maps when reviewing some park, and didn't have any issue.

Could you possibly do more testing? Have you edited the image you were trying to upload, maybe?

Hi, clean your device from any other GCam mods, even earlier versions of LMC, restart your device, use the provided APK (and make sure the file is not corrup / re-download the zip archive if needed), then install it. No installation issue here.

Tried. Still not installing... I would like to try installing LMC v13, but the link is expired. If you can upload again, it would be very nice! Thank you!

Thank you Surfeur-des-Reves for your awesome mods. I love it, that the animations are reduced, so that we can take photos quicker.

I have 2 questions:
1. Are there documentations that I can read, what "functions" the "modes" on the interface have (e.g. LDR, Leica, etc)? I would like to understand them better and use the modes correctly!
2. Is there anyway to disable the animation when swich between lens?
3. Which options should I take to have on ZSL (zero shutter lag)?

Merci again, mon ami!

Here is an update of my Custom Profile for LMC (V14) GCam Mod, for our beloved OnePlus 8 Pro...

🌟 NiCkAM8PRO V4.3 (LMC V14) Custom Pack: https://gofile.io/d/ilTfYb 💥

Changelog:

• Turned 'ViewFinder Noise Reduction' OFF, as it was bringing some 'shenanigans' on the ViewFinder, especially in low-light scenarios.
• Some tweaking in the RamPatcher settings (mostly on the main back lens), for some more 'organic' look / less sharpened.
• Slightly improved noise reduction (main back camera), while maintaining tons of details.
• Lifted the shadows considerably on the main camera, for Pixel-like results.
• Tuned the exposure / lighting parameters for all lenses (you can still turn 'Exposure Compensation' ON if you prefer some slightly lower exposure in your shots).
• 'HDRNet' is turned ON by default, for instant capture. Disabling it will turn 'HDR+Enhanced' ON with 20 frames captured, for higher results (and longer processing time).

Enjoy! :)

Hello there,

1) Unfortunately, there is no specific documentation for each GCam mod, but you might still find the 2 links at the bottom of my very first post useful. Anyway, LDR means Low-Dynamic Range (as opposed to HDR) and will strenghten the shadows & contrasts of your subjects by adjusting the highlights & exposure. Leica mode, as the name implies, is just a filter aimed at reproducing some characteristics of those shots taken with the legendary brand's camera & lenses.
2) Nope, at least with LMC mod, as it would mean using the same (rampatcher) values for all lenses (as far as I know), instead of specific values for each sensor.
3) You can enable 'HDRNet' button on the ViewFinder to get near-ZSL results.

Hello there!

thank you for the personal answer to my question directly. I have been using your mods, and I enjoy it very much, particular Leica filter.
I am reaching out, because I stumble across the Magisk Module "OnePlus 8 Series & 9R Camera Unlocker", which promises to:
  • Removes the 1/30s shutter speed cap for third party camera apps, allowing GCam to use up to 1/8s in Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL) mode
  • Enables 48MP RAW10 capture support, both on the main (8/8T/9R) and ultra wide (8 Pro) lenses
  • Adds Multi Frame Noise Reduction support for the macro/monochrome (8/8T) and ultra wide (8 Pro) lenses
  • Adds support for long exposure capture (up to 5 seconds) in the Open Camera app
  • Allows access to the auxiliary cameras indepedent of the OxygenOS version or the GCam package installed
Does it work with our GCam here? I am particularlyl interested in the improved ZSL!

Thank you for your feedbacks!
Kind regards

Hi,

Thanks for your kind words regarding my work. I am not the author of the Google Camera mod, only the custom profile made for our device.

Regarding this Magisk module, I have flashed it, few weeks ago (the initial release, then their V2), but haven't managed to get anything close to 1/8s when using HDR-Net & HDR+ modes from LMC app. The only way for me to get full control over the shutter speed is to select HDR Enhanced mode, in the Quick Settings, and long-press the gallery icon on the bottom right of the viewfinder, which is a shortcut to the Shutter speed menu. I also select how many HDR frames I want to capture each time I press the shutter button by touching the 'Auto' circular icon at the top left of the viewfinder (the minimum is 3 frames).

I'm afraid I can't help you more regarding that module, as I haven't coded it. Maybe they have a Telegram channel so you could contact them if you need more info & some assistance.

Cheers.

And here comes another update of my OnePlus 8 Pro 'custom profile', made for LMC V14 GCam Mod:

🌟 NiCkAM8PRO V4.4 (LMC V14) Custom Pack: https://gofile.io/d/11NZWr 💥

Changelog:
- Some improvements in the Colour & WB settings for the Main, UW & Tele back lenses.
- A few modifications in the Developer settings (hope it doesn't 'break' anything in the app)
- Slightly adjusted the RamPatcher settings for all 3 back lenses.
- Lifted the shadows considerably for all 3 back lenses, for Pixel-like results.
- Changed some parameters for the Night mode, matching my personal preferences (not too bright).

1) If you prefer some darker exposure on your shots, just press the 'Sun' icon ('Exposure Compensation') on the ViewFinder screen.

2) If you want some (slightly) higher quality results in your shots, disable the HDR-Net mode by pressing the corresponding icon on the ViewFinder. It will take a bit more time to capture your image though. You can also manually choose how many frames you want to capture for your HDR shot by pressing the 'Auto' icon.

3) In low-light & Night scenarios, you may find the 'AWB' (Auto White-Balance) mode useful. Just activate it by pressing the AWB button (on the ViewFinder). Remember to disable it for your daylight shots.

4) When using Night mode, a Tripod (or at least a stable surface) is highly recommended!

Cheers & Enjoy! :)

Hello there,

Another day, another update.

🌟 NiCkAM8PRO V4.5 (LMC V14) Custom Pack: https://gofile.io/d/sZr7DB 💥

Some slight modifications to get as close as possible to my ideal results, which some other people might like as well.

Recommendations made for previous release do apply for this one as well.

Cheers!

Hello World,

Unfortunately, I forgot to configure a few things in previous V4.5 release for LMC GCam mod (very few changes were also made to existing areas). These have been fixed in new V4.6 release, so I'd recommend everyone to update to this latest configuration file.

🌟 NiCkAM8PRO V4.6 (LMC V14) Custom Pack: https://gofile.io/d/NdHJr3 💥

Some slight modifications to get as close as possible to my ideal results, which some other people might like as well.

Recommendations made for previous release do apply for this one as well.

For HIGHER QUALITY results, just disable 'HDR-Net' icon on the left side of the viewfinder, and enable the 'RES' icon (will take a bit longer to capture and process files). You could also lower your ISO / increase your shutter speed by long-pressing the gallery icon, on the viewfinder (useful, especially for night and dark environments).

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Cheers!

Hi,

1) Please make sure you uninstall any other -possibly conflicting- GCam mod, including previous versions of LMC.
2) Install the provided LMC (SnapCam) version included in the download link.
3) Using a file manager, unzip & copy the included XML file inside the 'LMC8.4' folder, create it if not already there.
4) Start the app, make SURE you grant full 'Storage Access' when requested for it.
5) Double-press the black area around the Shutter button, then you should be able to load my custom XML file. If not, then there is obviously something not done properly in the indicated steps, or you're using a custom ROM that possibly requests additional steps that I do not know of.

Hope it helps. Cheers!

    Oopss, I did it again... :)

    🌟 NiCkAM8PRO V6 (LMC R15 GCam) Custom Pack (APK + Profiles): https://gofile.io/d/H33jkl 💥

    Changelog & Suggestions:

    There are just too many changes in this new release to keep the previous V5x iteration, so here comes V6, with lots of optimizations and improvements in every app department. It would just take too long to mention every modification done to it, but after hours spent working on this new version, I believe it should bring even better noise reduction, speed and overall image quality (compared to previous release).

    This time, only 2 custom XMLs are provided: FAST & HQ! They are mostly similar but 'FAST' brings instant shots (using Zero-Shutter Lag -ZSL- mode by default), very fast processing and 12MP image resolution (about 2-4MB per shot), while 'HQ' comes with HDR+Enhanced by default (with as low as 1/5s Exposure time and 20 HDR frames, so be steady for a second or two if shooting at night / in low light!), increased image resolution (6 to 12MB per shot) and therefore some slightly longer image processing time. JPEG compression is kept at 97% for both profiles, as it is a sweet spot in terms of quality / image size.

    You can also use 'FAST' xml and activate 'HDR+Enhanced' function in the Quick Settings panel, which should limit Exposure time to 1/15s, for slightly better quality while remaining fast to shoot & process. This is actually the XML that most people should use, but if for any reason you need to use 'HQ', just make sure you are steady / use some stable surface (or increase Exposure time to 1/10s to 1/13s). However, if you use a tripod or a perfectly stable surface, you can even decrease Expo time to 'Max'...

    Everything is user-adjustable, especially the exposure time, which can be quickly accessed with some long-press on the Gallery icon. Same goes for the number of HDR frames, which can be reduced or increased (if you use HDR+Enhanced mode).

    If your shots are too bright, make use of the Exposure Compensation function (the 'sun' icon) or simply touch the viewfinder area and manually adjust your exposure using the slider.

    Almost everything should work, including front & back video from all sensors. There is still no distortion correction for UW sensor, but this is not something that can be solved on my side, unfortunately.

    For those with a rooted device / magisk installed (OOS 11/12/13 or custom ROM), you might get some better performance (especially if you get stuck at 1/100s in ZSL mode and wish to get as low as 1/15s) after flashing this magisk module (all credits go to those who developed it, not me): https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/p/camera-unlocker-oneplus-8-9r/?v1-2

    As always, take this new release as it is, or leave it, but please remember this is all done for free, took countless hours of (my) time to create and is in no way made by a team of experienced developers. As for anything in life, there is surely room for improvement, and I strongly encourage users to adapt my work to their liking. Please remember that "if you can't say anything nice about something, just don't say anything at all", or at least try to be nice when reporting bugs or suggestions for improvement. And one last thing: we all have different preferences when it comes to photography.

    Have fun with it!

    🌟 NiCkAM8PRO V6.1 (LMC R15 GCam) Custom Pack (APK + Profiles): https://gofile.io/d/gtsmk6 💥

    Changelog & Suggestions:

    Several small optimizations here and there. Shots will be a tiny bit more contrasted, with less artefacts. AWB should bring more noticeable results for the back main sensor, when activated (at night, in low-light and/or under artificial lighting conditions). 'IR' sensor should bring some slightly better quality results as well (well, as long as you use it under -bright- daylight and keep in mind it's just a -crappy- 5MP sensor).

    This new release also comes with 2 custom XML files: FAST & HQ! They are mostly similar but 'FAST' brings instant shots (using Zero-Shutter Lag -ZSL- mode by default), very fast processing and 12MP image resolution (about 2-4MB per shot), while 'HQ' comes with HDR+Enhanced by default (with as low as 1/10s Exposure time and 20 HDR frames, so be steady for a second or two if shooting at night / in low light!), increased image resolution (6 to 12MB per shot) and therefore some slightly longer image processing time. JPEG compression is kept at 97% for both profiles, as it is a sweet spot in terms of quality / image size.

    You can also use 'FAST' xml and activate 'HDR+Enhanced' function in the Quick Settings panel, which should limit Exposure time to 1/15s, for slightly better quality while remaining fast to shoot & process. This is actually the XML that most people should use, but if for any reason you need to use 'HQ', just make sure you are steady. If you use a tripod or a perfectly stable surface, you can even decrease Expo time to 1/5s, 1/2s, or even 'Max'. The longer the exposure time, the better the results (lower noise and higher quality)!

    Everything is user-adjustable, especially exposure time, which can be quickly accessed by long-pressing the Gallery icon. Same goes for the number of HDR frames, which can be reduced or increased (if you use HDR+Enhanced mode).

    If your shots are too bright, make use of the Exposure Compensation function (the 'sun' icon) or simply touch the viewfinder area and manually adjust your exposure using the slider.

    Almost everything should work, including front & back video from all sensors. There is still no distortion correction for UW sensor, but this is not something that can be solved on my side, unfortunately. Digital Interpolation ('Res' function) does not work when using Portrait mode as well.

    For those with a rooted device / magisk installed (OOS 11/12/13 or custom ROM), you might get some better performance (especially if you get stuck at 1/100s in ZSL mode and wish to get as low as 1/15s) after flashing this magisk module (all credits go to those who developed it, not me):

    Does face retouch work?
    Hi, it should work for the Selfie camera, yes. For the back lenses, not sure it really does much, or maybe very lightly, despite the function being (manually) set to 'level 1' in the Dev settings. Whenever I take pictures of people who like some 'makeup' effects, I usually edit their shots with BeautyPlus app, quite a powerful software, which is both Female & Male compatible.

    Anyway, I've included this 'test.xml' file below, which is manually set at 'level 2' for makeup & beauty retouch. I changed a few other settings as well (reduced clarity, for example). HDR mode is set to 'HDR+' instead of 'HDR Enhanced', for instant capture. Full 48MP shots is ON for the main lens as well, so that users can easily crop & adjust their shots afterwards if needed.

    It is hard to provide an 'ideal' configuration file for everyone, as we all have different preferences. Most people in this kind of forum are going to pixel-peep every shot they take, and will rate the config file based on the number of details they can grab as well as the lowest noise they'll see, while some may go for the fastest config, not caring much about getting the highest quality, others will go for portrait & people shots mostly, with a need for some softer output and possibly some face retouch as well, something that those hunting for maximum details will avoid as much as possible.

    Anyway, absolutely anything and everything can be user-adjusted in the settings, and the config files I provide are just a base. I always encourage people to adjust the settings depending on their very own preferences.

    For higher-quality results from this 'Test.xml' profile, enable 'HDR+Enhanced' from the Quick-Settings panel (longer time to capture shots though).

    Cheers, and Happy New Year 2023 to everyone! :)

    🌟 NiCkAM8PRO V6.2 (LMC R15 GCam) Custom Pack (APK + Profiles): https://gofile.io/d/jmg1Xt 💥

    Changelog & Suggestions:

    This new update brings some changes and optimizations mostly in the RamPatcher part of the app.

    2 XML custom config files are provided in this release: 'DSLR' aims at bringing a more natural, softer and less-sharpened approach to your shots, while still retaining lots of details but in a more subtle and gentler way, while 'SHARP' xml is closer to my previous releases. Those 2 config XMLs may fit different situations / scenarios and preferences, of course. They are both FAST, but you may just activate 'HDR+Enhanced' mode from the Quick-Settings panel if you wish to achieve some higher-quality results, as well as manually increase your Shutter/Exposure time to 1/5s, 1/2s or even 1 second.

    Other modifications were done as well, but less noticeable.

    Of course, if you don't like this release, simply use any previous version that suits you best...

    Enjoy & 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://gofile.io/d/jWBLSr 🌟

    [ LMC R15 is currently the latest GCAM Mod included in 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 (using the provided password), then install the apk file of your choice on your device.

    2) Extract the appropriate xml configuration file, as well as its folder, onto 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 Ultra-Wide 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!

    Well, hello there again :)

    🌟 Here is my custom profile (V4.0) for LMC R13 Edition 💥 https://ufile.io/oyfwleal (APK + XML)

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

    2) Extract the xml configuration file, as well as its folder, onto 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, and voila! :)


    -- XML CHANGELOG --

    Lots of improvements and modifications to improve processing speed, quality and reduce noise on different sensors. Some color improvements made on all lenses, especially the IR (ID4), which should now bring very close results to what you see on the viewfinder! Also added some Black & White mode, for those who fancy it.

    The XML is set to 'HDR-Net' by default, which means it takes shots instantly (and processes them in a second or two). If you need higher-quality results, just turn it off (using the icon on the left side of the viewfinder) and it will then use 'HDR+Enhanced' mode (15 frames, for good low-light shots especially).

    Regarding IR sensor, it uses the real 5 megapixels sensor, so do not expect very high quality shots, especially as we do not have any appropriate noise model in the GCam app yet for it.

    -- APP CHANGELOG --

    LMC 8.4 Release 13 Fix 2

    Added:
    • ISO100, Max.Time, Max.ISO in shutter speed selection.
    • Session selection for the system (initialization, most likely takes precedence over photo mode, necessary for devices that had to switch mode to activate sessions)
    • 6 new sessions at the end of the list, thus adding probably all possible sessions at the moment

    Corrections:
    • Fixed work Mi12 Ultra
    • Slightly changed excerpt code
    • Fixes for some devices

    'Exposure Compensation' (the 'White Sun' icon on the ViewFinder) is OFF by default. If your shots are too bright, just ENABLE it ('Blue Sun') and the exposure will be lowered.

    Have Fun :)

    Oopss, I did it again... :)

    🌟 NiCkAM8PRO V6 (LMC R15 GCam) Custom Pack (APK + Profiles): https://gofile.io/d/H33jkl 💥

    Changelog & Suggestions:

    There are just too many changes in this new release to keep the previous V5x iteration, so here comes V6, with lots of optimizations and improvements in every app department. It would just take too long to mention every modification done to it, but after hours spent working on this new version, I believe it should bring even better noise reduction, speed and overall image quality (compared to previous release).

    This time, only 2 custom XMLs are provided: FAST & HQ! They are mostly similar but 'FAST' brings instant shots (using Zero-Shutter Lag -ZSL- mode by default), very fast processing and 12MP image resolution (about 2-4MB per shot), while 'HQ' comes with HDR+Enhanced by default (with as low as 1/5s Exposure time and 20 HDR frames, so be steady for a second or two if shooting at night / in low light!), increased image resolution (6 to 12MB per shot) and therefore some slightly longer image processing time. JPEG compression is kept at 97% for both profiles, as it is a sweet spot in terms of quality / image size.

    You can also use 'FAST' xml and activate 'HDR+Enhanced' function in the Quick Settings panel, which should limit Exposure time to 1/15s, for slightly better quality while remaining fast to shoot & process. This is actually the XML that most people should use, but if for any reason you need to use 'HQ', just make sure you are steady / use some stable surface (or increase Exposure time to 1/10s to 1/13s). However, if you use a tripod or a perfectly stable surface, you can even decrease Expo time to 'Max'...

    Everything is user-adjustable, especially the exposure time, which can be quickly accessed with some long-press on the Gallery icon. Same goes for the number of HDR frames, which can be reduced or increased (if you use HDR+Enhanced mode).

    If your shots are too bright, make use of the Exposure Compensation function (the 'sun' icon) or simply touch the viewfinder area and manually adjust your exposure using the slider.

    Almost everything should work, including front & back video from all sensors. There is still no distortion correction for UW sensor, but this is not something that can be solved on my side, unfortunately.

    For those with a rooted device / magisk installed (OOS 11/12/13 or custom ROM), you might get some better performance (especially if you get stuck at 1/100s in ZSL mode and wish to get as low as 1/15s) after flashing this magisk module (all credits go to those who developed it, not me): https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/p/camera-unlocker-oneplus-8-9r/?v1-2

    As always, take this new release as it is, or leave it, but please remember this is all done for free, took countless hours of (my) time to create and is in no way made by a team of experienced developers. As for anything in life, there is surely room for improvement, and I strongly encourage users to adapt my work to their liking. Please remember that "if you can't say anything nice about something, just don't say anything at all", or at least try to be nice when reporting bugs or suggestions for improvement. And one last thing: we all have different preferences when it comes to photography.

    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 :)
