We can't use the Pixel 3 camera itself... but perhaps we can use some dependancies from it to get the current portrait mode September build working with more stability (no memory leaks)

Sorry about this, but maybe you can help me people, or maybe anyone have the same issue with the stock camera. I know this is not the place but i think this can be the only place to have an answer cause Samsung dont know how to help me... this is what happened to me!
Im Nico from Argentina, from the first day of use I felt that something was wrong with the camera of my s9 Plus, yesterday I finally discovered what was happening. When using live focus mode the device does not blur the image area corresponding to the upper part of the phone.
I never had a fall and I already did a factory restoration but the problem persists. Somebody with the same issue??? Any idea of what can be or how to fix it? Thanks!

Your problem has absolutely nothing to do with this mod. I suggest you ask in a more relevant forum/thread.

This is fantastic, exactly what I needed for my S9. One request - I'm trying to open GCam from a lockscreen shortcut (either on-screen or using bxActions) but this still requires me to enter PIN or fingerprint. Can you add a setting that allows GCam to be shown over the lock screen?

Open Camera does this somehow! Details: https://opencamera.sourceforge.io/help.html#settings
Show camera when locked - If you have a lock screen on your device (e.g., PIN to unlock), Open Camera by default will show above the lock screen - i.e., if locked, you won't have to enter the PIN to use Open Camera. The device still needs to be unlocked in order to go to the Settings or Gallery. If you would prefer Open Camera to always be unavailable when your device is locked, you can disable this option.

May I know what mod you're using?

Whats your setting? Does portrait mode work on you? Doesnt seem to work on mine.
Again, it "works" in that if you set the settings right it will take an ok picture, but it will always have that super lag "one frame every 2-3sec" issue until devs can spend some time with the FULL pixel 3 camera and framework still it can be ported correctly for us

    Changelog:
    -changed tonemap of gcam to lessen black crushing on jpeg quality courtesy of defcomg!

    Changelog:
    -forced 50 frames for hdr+ enhanced capture.

    For clear picture in low light, use a tripod and set to min iso for auto-exposure compensation.

    Arthur's latest 5.1.20 also worked with S9+ so I decided to do a minor mod to it: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1JCwavHJW-A8M2HZxSMlpWRQ2xdzjoZdm . This way it will give people a choice on the s9+ snapdragon only! I found that due to lack of exposure settings, arthur's version is more noisy than my version, but it does capture quicker. Note: 48 frames do not work, it will FC. However, I found that 46 frames worked fine.

    So after tinkering around with multiple new Gcam ports to establish a good base, we decided to stick with the previous BSG 5.1 as base since it has RAW mode! A minor but very important change has been made to the Gcam port since release dealing with RAW capture. Portrait mode live preview lag is still a zero progress since of the snap845 change. Will need pixel 3 or 3 xl dump to figure out.

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OkJs8_X_OpUUwSIZC-qAqHij8QxorV6P

    Changelog:
    -force 30 frame bursts for all condition for RAW capture.

    credits: @defcomg, @fahmi182 .. these would not be possible without them :) Feel free to use my port for your device but please credit accordingly. Donation always welcome, link to donate below.

    After multiple MULTIPLE trial and error we finally got hdr+ enhanced to work! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iWsHxbN1aCEVIF97OJOkA3KX6_y9Vx37 . Portrait mode is still wonky, live preview lags like crazy, and sometimes it takes a picture sometimes it does not and we are having very difficulty to figuring out why it's doing that. If anyone have an idea, please chime in. Enjoy, same config as previous version should work.

    Here is the apk for people to start enjoying shooting. I was going to hold out until more fixes but I rather let people enjoy taking photos accurately: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cVdEbu38n7FhZEPCqj6KTXoc5bT-K9Fm/view?usp=drivesdk. Note: This is strictly for Snapdragon 845 S9/S9+ only. Please do not ask why it does not work on Exynos. If it does then you're golden.

    Settings to use: Model - Pixel 2 XL. JPEG quality - 100%. Enable toggle for 2016 pixel zsl. Close app from memory and reopen it.

    Bugs:
    HDR+ enhanced do not work.
    Front HDR+ shows perfect live preview but when you snap pic it force closed.
    Portrait front does nothing.
    Portrait rear live preview slower than molasses but it work.

    If any dev wants to work on this, they are more than welcome to but give credits to defcomg and myself please. Without defcomg, none of this could happen!


    HUGE UPDATE: A stable semi-working version of GCam has now work for the Snap 845 S9 and S9+!! Thanks to defcomg ofcourse, so please PLEASE donate to him for his countless hours. I will also accept donation as of now so I can purchase new devices to test versions of Gcam!

    Link will be provided once bugs are sorted through.
