I just got my FP4 and I’m really satisfied with this phone.
Nevertheless in camera-tests, the cam-software still not seems to provide the complete potential of the hardware which is build in.
It seems that there exists a compatible gcam-port for the camera:
Has anyone tried it yet and is this port fully compatible with the camera-module?
As I’m not a Android tinkerer, I would like to know if this gcam-port is configurable for the FP4 without having a deep dive into Android or gcam-port configuration.
Just thought about that topic.
Is it probably possible for the Fairphone developers to provide a configuration file for the GCam_8.1.101_Wichaya_V1.4_Snapcam.apk to make both cameras usable or is this a copyright issue?
So do I.
It seems that Google actually provides the best camera interface. It would be great if Fairphone could provide fully compatible Fairphone-ports for the usage of third party products like Google camera or other camera-software.
Also seems to me that a gcam port gives the best results especially in difficult lighting conditions. However, I think it is unrealistic for Fairphone to partner with the gcam-modder-community. I rather think that you would have to find a developer in the community who would be willing to adapt his port to the FP4. I don’t know how the communication goes though. If there is a specific forum where you can discuss such requests.
no it’s not, at least not in this context. the package name (org.codeaurora.snapcam) suggests that it’s got something to do with Code Aurora Forum, which as far as I understand is Qualcomm’s repository of their modifications to AOSP’s source code.
