Javaból ellenőrizted a konfigurációt? Most 3 reszelőt biztosít különböző élesítési fokozatokkal. A pp

Did you check the configuration from Java? He now provides 3 files with different degrees of sharpening. Medium is the middle one.
Thank you, this version of gcam is excellent, I only use it, the native samsung camera program makes me sad at the same time, unfortunately

Well, thanks Java, but I'm a bit lost...
- now LDR not enabled by default?
- no more HDR+/HDR++ buttons, and HDRnet enabled all-time?

less sharp or less "synthetic sharp"? I have no idea what I can say to you without ANY examples...
So in this example the GCam output actually looks better to me, but this is what I mean. I guess a sweet spot would be somewhere in between

When I took a photo of my kitchen GCam output was much darker than standard Samsung.

I think it is a matter of personal taste. I would not like to GCAM go into the Samsung App direction even slightly. For me what is the output of the GCAM is the sweet spot of what is possible with that sensor.

still try to finde some Wirkung Version.... All the ones I've tried (also linked here) just close immediately.
not even FC with error message, just closes.
I will have to look at these on a computer screen but you have shown keen eye for detail so I am not doubting your results.

Did a quick test on the trunk of a palm tree just now, all 4 lenses, 0.6x and 1x at - 2, 3x and 10x at +2 as you suggest. Kept the FoV similar between all to stay away from digitization artifacts. Results are below. Your correction is always on top, default v8 on bottom. If anything the default seems to have have a touch more detail.on the. 0.6x, 1x, and 3x. The a wash.

Will also look at. These. On a large screen when I get home.

How do I change my lumanoise settings? I don't know which lens corresponds to which camera (i.e. is main camera the 1x, tele camera the 10x, etc). Thanks for the help, I will include more detail if anyone is confused.
I'd say just use hdr++ and force a slower shutter speed like 0.5s or 1s (quick shortcut for it: long press the picture circle at bottom right) . Just don't forget to put shutter back to automatic after your night shots :)

Quick example:

View attachment 5870487

View attachment 5870489

Hdr++ forced to 0.5s exposure

Is this JavaSabr's GCam mod? If so, how did you do hdr++? I can't seem to find the option in the settings. If it isn't JavaSabr's GCam, which one is it? (if I'm not making sense, let me know)

    Have uploaded v15 my release:
    Have uploaded new version of my config for AGCv7 and all s23
    What is the best config for s23u ? Apologies but im not someone who understands a lot when it comes to camera settings. Probably suggesting best default config of AGC/LMC (without touching the config) would be fine. Appreciate it a lot Thanks !
    It's not really the best config that matters - just download the latest one and use it. The thing is that you have to know when to use them. For example javasabr for AGC has 3 main profiles, sharp, medium and soft - load any that you prefer - sharper photos have more noise, more contrast and are closer to stock Samsung photos. Next thing are the internal (sub)profiles - "disable", "ka", "Natural-ZSL" and so on - again you have to know when to use them when taking photos.
    "disable" is useful when taking photos in HDR - it is closest to stock Samsung HDR, other profiles are almost useless in high contrast, for example taking pictures in semi dark room with a window on a sunny day - either the window is "whited-out" or the room interior is too dark. "disable" profile works best in conjunction with HDR+ or HDRnet enabled. Both are still far from Samsung default light balance (but Samsung default is bad for other reasons).
    Color settings are personal preference, for me defaults are good for most situations BUT there are some with intensive colors (some deep red flowers) the get bluish-white tint instead of pure purple in default color profile - in such case using arnova color profile works wonders.
    Alternatively, instead of "disable" you can use HDR-NS profile - it "forces" Night Sight photos in daytime and shows basically the same results as "disable" with HDR+ - you should test how it works for moving objects before counting on it. Theoretically Sport-NS should work well in such case as it takes less pictures to combine, does it quicker and has lower chance of motion artefacts.
    Personally for everyday photos I use Vibrant-ZSL with arnova color profile since I mostly take pictures of static objects.
    Oh, and one thing, the latest javasabr AGC profile for S23U has (I think by mistake?) enabled "upscale images" (x1.3) by default so it takes 16Mpix photos - at least for soft variation.
    Hello everyone, friends! I am glad to present you new configs for S23u for AGC 8.8 V7.0 - Mazar V5.

    Changes and improvements:
    1) reworked shadows. Now the volume has become significantly larger in all conditions and in all shooting modes due to slightly different light capture, slightly greater dehaze and minor adjustments to the contrast settings. (Thanks to JavaSabr for the idea to raise the gamma contrast a little higher)
    2) applied a tone curve to all modes and lenses, adjusted to ensure uniform illumination of light throughout the entire image (HDR quality)
    3) Shutter speed in HDR NS, Night and Sport HDR NS from 1/7 reduced to 1/8 for even less blur
    4) slight correction of noise reduction on all modules and modes, also relatively due to changes in shutter speed in night modes
    5) saturation was slightly reduced based on the change in dehaze
    6) various minor adjustments to optimize performance

    The shooting modes have not changed, so their correct use is described in my previous post. All good photos, I try for you!)

    Link to AGC 8.8 v7.0: (download with samsung signature)

    Configs: Don't forget to unpack the archives before importing!)
    I welcome everyone! I am glad to present you a new version of the config for AGC8.8 V6 - Mazar V3. There are a lot of changes compared to the previous version. Also, please read the post about shooting modes. Some of them have changed in purpose a little. I'll start with the changes.

    Changes and improvements:

    1) Redesigned noise reduction on all modules and in all modes. Telephoto optimization for s23u
    2) Completely redesigned light and shadow settings. Now there is more volume in the room due to the greater capture of light, but during the day it retained brightness.
    3) Worked with SABR. Changed the saber contrast value for more voluminous images - in fact, an analogue of sharping
    4) LDR(Vibrant) mode has now replaced the previous LDR(+Contrast) I used to have. Its purpose is the same as the main mode, but more contrasting and colorful. Thanks to JavaSabr for the idea.
    5) Noise model for s23u for 3x telephoto - Pixel 6 Pro
    6) HDR NS redesigned on all modules. Now he gives exactly that picture in the afternoon according to HDR, which evens out shadows and removes highlights. In the room, I corrected its excess illumination.
    7) all modules are switched to forced processing through HEXAGON
    8) Various minor improvements under the hood for more stable camera and photo processing

    About the shooting modes I also want to say how to use them more competently:

    1) Main mode - the main shooting mode in zsl. Suitable for most scenes. But it doesn't have as high dynamic range as HDR NS
    2) LDR(Vibrant) - essentially the same main mode. But with higher contrast and richer colors. Use if you like this
    3) HDR (+ NS) - essentially the same as the main mode, which is more suitable for static, night scenes. It has a wider DD, but there is more blurring in motion than in Main mode. This must be taken into account.
    4) Night (-exp) - essentially the same HDR NS, but with a lower exposure and ISO, suitable for atmospheric night, urban evening shots. Use if you need something like this.
    5) Sport HDR(+NS) - faster version of HDR NS. Gives you more freedom to move. But there will be more noise in the evening. Compromise for speed.

    JavaSabr also has these shooting modes and showed everything in the screenshots.

    All successful use! I want to thank all the comrades in my tedegram group who tested this config with me. Nothing would have been possible without you! If you need any help with gcam and config - write here, or better in private messages. At the same time I invite you to the group in the telegram
