Im my opinion GCAM pictures are way better. The only cameras exynos can use gcam is front main and ultrawide. There is much more detail in the main gcam camera. I wonder the difference with the other lenses

    Which version of GCAM have you used so far, can you share a link please?

    That's completely up to Samsung. If more people are interested, they need to go into the Samsung Members app and voice their opinions. Don't actually say it's for GCam though obviously. The trick is to demand RAW access for all cameras since right now only RAW for main and ultra wide are available.

    For example: https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Galaxy-S21/please-allow-all-cameras-on-pro-mode/td-p/1718372
    Isn't that for the US market? Let's organize and pump the EXYNOS forum full of posts on the matter, so they may actually see a large number of people asking for it and possibly listen?

    Can you share a link of the GCAM you are using?

    My particular example was because I'm in the US haha. I would guess that if you make a post on Members, it'll take you to whichever region you're in. You can then share the links too and others can like/comment on it. I'm just mainly saying we should do it on Samsung's official forums since while some Samsung employees do occasionally check XDA, it's pretty rare.

    Does Gcam lets you access portrait mode?

    Since the last software update the x3 optical lens on the S21 U has become my favourite lens to shoot from. Its essentially a nifty fifty with f stop down to below 1.4 thanks to the computational photography magic.

    I persume Gcam lets you do similar bokeh?

    Not really, Gcam needs to see a person in the shot to give you the bokeh...

    lol maybe Samsung people do read XDA. After sharing that link (which was posted on Samsung Members almost 2 months ago), a Samsung moderator finally tagged it as a feature request the day after!

    I've tried the Gcam for the S21 Ultra, and I even find the overall colors on the Gcam pictures better, but it doesn't even support the full hardware with my SD888.

    If you're looking to improve a single photo, you're better off using Lightroom or something like it, you'll get better results if you're willing to put a little effort. If you want to just shoot anything and have it look good, you're **** out of luck, maybe consider an iPhone, I'm sure they have a forum around somewhere.

    From what I have found seeing post in this forum, it's all about color correction where gcam is good, in that case I would rather fiddle with it myself in ligthroom, once you get used to it, it's a piece of cake, this is what I got from my s21ultra👇

    It's actually not haha. Stock cam does well with man made things with flat, smooth surfaces like buildings and cars. It struggles with nature sometimes though, especially the 10x telephoto. Adding contrast and sharpening is easy, removing it is hard.
