XCam LG v5.1.2 für das LG G3

xcamlg_banner.png


!!! PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST BEFORE PROCEEDING !!!

My goal for this application was to create a more flexible camera solution for LG phones. The camera hardware itself is very capable, but LG didn't necessarily take full advantage of it with their software. This app extends the capabilities of the camera and offers increased control/quality.


*For instructions on the use of the XCam LG Settings donation app, please see the 2nd post.

*This is ONLY for stock or stock-based firmware (the version of Android that LG provides).


How to Install XCam LG:
Quote:
  1. Make sure you have turned on the option for "Unknown Source" under Settings > General > Securtiy.
  2. Download the latest version of XCam LG HERE while using your phone. When the download has finished, pull down your notification tray and select the XCamLG.apk file. If you can't find it, go to "Downloads" listed in your app drawer and select the XCamLG.apk file from there. This will start the install process.
  3. If you wish to support development and gain additional functionality, please consider purchasing the XCam LG Settings app from the play store HERE. For details on the options within this companion app, see the 2nd post.
  4. Due to changes Google made in Android 4.4.x (KitKat), if you want to save photos to your external SD Card you will need to install and run NextApp's SDFix (requires root access). After you restart your phone the external option should work without issue.

What to do if you have a problem:
Quote:
  1. Gather as much information as possible on how to reproduce the issue.
  2. If the application is force closing, get a full logcat that shows the error/problem. Here is an excellent tutorial on how to make one. There are also apps such as CatLog available in the play store that allow you to capture this on your device.
  3. Post very clear/exact steps to reproduce the problem here along with any pertinent log files or email them to info@bellabytes.com.

Donations are always welcome!

Please provide any feedback pertaining to bugs or feature requests as I'll be actively working on this project.

Devs: Due to the fact that this mod is available as a normal apk install, there is no need for and I do not authorize it to be included in ANY roms/firmware. It just creates confusion for people installing it and fragments bug reporting and feature requests. You can direct them to this thread to install the latest version. Though it should go without saying, I do not approve of any use/copying of the code/methods contained herein for your own app/mod.

This app provides something extra for those who choose to donate and support development on XCam LG. It allows on-the-fly configuration of many aspects of the camera that were previously unavailable.

How to Use XCam LG Settings:
Quote:
  1. Image Control:
    • Quality: Change the jpeg compression level from 0 (high compression/small file size) to 100 (lowest compression/largest file size)
    • Contrast: Change the pre-processing contrast level from 0 (lowest) to 10 (highest)
    • Saturation: Change the pre-processing saturation level from 0 (greyscale) to 10 (highly saturated). This option is only available using the stock G2 firmware.
    • Sharpness: Change the pre-processing sharpness level from 0 (lowest) to 36 (highest)
  2. Shutter Control:
    • Burst/IA/Night/Normal/Sports: Change the minimum shutter speed for the corresponding shotmode. This is useful if you want to capture faster-moving subjects in lower light situations and don't want the camera to automatically shift to it's slowest possible shutter speed (~ 1/7 sec). Keep in mind that increasing this speed obviously means darker photos. Some interesting results can be achieved by leaving "Auto Night Mode" (described in next section) enabled while setting the minimum shutter speed of Normal mode to 1/30. The multiple exposures of night mode and the corresponding noise reduction still kick in, but the focus time is improved. Due to edge issues these photos are best if cropped.
  3. General Settings:
    • Audio Noise Gate: Toggle LG's audio noise gate while recording video ON/OFF. This allows control over the sometimes objectionable "underwater audio" effect.
    • Stereo Mics: Toggle between stereo (ON) and mono (OFF)
    • Audio Rec Check: Toggle the check for another app using the microphone ON/OFF. This can alleviate the "Cannot start recording while another application is using audio" message encountered when the "OK Google" Detection from any screen option is enabled under Google Now. Keep in mind that this is enabled for a reason, and that videos recorded while this check is bypassed may stutter slightly.
    • Auto Night Mode: Toggle the automatic drop into Night Shotmode ON/OFF.
    • Chroma Flash: Toggle chroma flash ON/OFF. Only available on G2
    • Focus Lock Sound: Toggle the sound heard when touch focus locks ON/OFF
    • Recording Sound: Toggle the sound heard when starting/stopping video recording ON/OFF
    • Night Mode: Toggle the night shotmode availability under the mode button ON/OFF
    • Sports Mode: Toggle the sports shotmode availability under the mode button ON/OFF
