Pixel camera app / Google Camera Port

I tried the same one (NGCam_7.4.104-v1.5). The previous one I was using (don’t remember which one) did not work anymore after upgrading to Android 10.
The only issue is screenshots are saved without date/time. So maybe it’s time to try another one as well…

Thanks, I finally stayed with that one, Nikita’s version was too unresponsive or laggy for me.

Are any of these in Google Play? Would be nice to have an app that automatically updates itself.

No.
These are ports by enthusiasts of an App Google only wants their own Pixel phones to have. Of course they are not in the Play Store.

I am trying some ports, but without luck. I have the Fairphone 3 with the new modules installed and I have troubles with video modes on Gcam ports… has anyone found a port that works with this new modules?

UPDATE: I tried all the latest ones I’ve seen named in this post and none of them worked for me, but we’ll find out if any port works on this new modules. I have to add that after reading the comments about the almost none existing differences between one camera module and another I am thinking about if buying the new modules was a good idea… maybe this absence of improvement is due to the stock camera app and not the modules themselves.

Nikita GCam version 7.4.104-v1.7 is installed on FP3 with new cam modules and camera and video are working.
So far I noticed that activation of Sabre gives a crash.
So far I have not found any “best settings”. FYI I have uploaded my current config (with infos: Fairphone FP3 with FP3+ cams, test #1) on https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/configs-nikita-05/ - maybe they will appear in the list in near future.

I installed this one as well and it worked fine. I upgraded my camera to the FP3+ version and the app stopped working :frowning:

Well, I tried it and it didn’t work for me, maybe I should give it a second chance.

I have the same problem :frowning:

For me, the app still works after upgrading the modules. Maybe you could try to reinstall the app or possibly upgrade to the latest version?

Please find my current settings as Github gist https://gist.github.com/raprism/1d1f023d1b3782c2e9aa95063a60fbdb . Note that this is used with release 7.4.104-v1.7, and note that they are likely not optimum settings, but working.

I also have the android Camera GO port on Fairphone. It works well, zero problems except occasional slow focus. If you google “android camera Go for any android phone” you can find the link to the port.
Camera GO is a version of google camera for phones with little RAM (currently Nokia 1.3 has it). It’s less CPU-intensive than the gcam app and works OK, also has a portrait mode

Hello, I just wanted to stress out that the latest stable cstark27’s Pixel Google Camera mod seems to work flawlessly with the FP3 hardware. Colorimetry and brightness appear to be well-balanced in any environment and you can also save a RAW version of the photos in a separated folder !

Could you try to install the new 8.1 version (and see if your settings still work)? Thx

Sorry, the newest version crashes at startup. I’m using the newest camera modules from FP3+. Maybe someone else with the original FP3 camera has more luck.

I tried the Urnyx05 and the Arnova8G2 port.

One was not installable on FP3 (or I took some wrong version from Urnyx) and the Arnova8G2 was hanging on start (only black window).

Does not work for me. Crashes chen opening

Do you have the FP3 (not the FP3+), right ? And which version of Android do you use ?
