Night mode no post processing
daylight shots pretty sorted... only thing can't get much closer...
Nice click.. And great clarity can you tell me which mode you used here?
Totally on auto, I have auto hdr turned on but from what I remember it didn't activate when taking this ;o
The wide angle mode photos are kinda distorted and moreover objects are kinda streched too
Sometimes in the HDR mode photos are weird the face is completely something different and unclear ,can anybody tell me the issue and provide me the best camera settings too
Any plans to improve HDR Enhanced? It can cause some artifacts if something is moving... since GCam doesn't work on Android 10 (works on phones from other brands, but not on this phone...), it would be nice to have some improvements to the stock camera. After all not everyone carries a tripod with them or is on a well lit place when taking pictures.
(Android 10) This guy lost part of his leg and his face was squeezed by HDR enhanced:
Here this bright white box is like blurred because the phone moved a bit while the picture was being taken:
And one the main problems is low light performance, even with stability sometimes it's hard to see details from pictures taken indoors or outside in low light (look at the bricks):
If this seems harsh, it's because I was using a ~400$ OnePlus 3 before, from 2016, and it was better with GCam than this 2019 phone, which was more expensive and has a better sensor:
If ASUS can't improve their camera quality, then at least they should create the conditions for alternatives to work on their devices.
I remember seeing somewhere on this forum that hdr++ enhanced is to be used in bright conditions and not in low light and that the night mode needs to be used for low light conditions.
After reading that comment, it seemed logical to me. After all, the concept of HDR is to improve dynamic range in harsh lighting conditions (like when the camera focuses an object with a strong back light). Night time or low light environment is slightly a different scenario which may need night mode rather than HDR or HDR enhanced.
Yes, the algorithms employed by HDR+ Enhanced is not really suitable for low light. Its intended purpose is for daylight/sunlight to provide a smoother HDR bracketing versus the HDR (which is still the highest in terms of maximum dynamic range).
@CH_ASUS It also happens during the day. Last Sunday I was with some of my family and after taking a picture, I noticed that one of the faces was facing left and right at the same time. It wasn't sunny, but damn, if HDR Enhanced doesn't work under those conditions, why is even in the app?
It seems to me that when it comes to photography, ASUS is behind many brands. This HDR Enhanced of yours reminds me of OpenCamera's (free and open source app) HDR... which is bad.
Can we at least expect anything that allows us to control the level of noise reduction/sharpness of the images?
@S4t there's a Gcam for Android 10, check this threat - post from 2019-09-29, 10:32PM. It's not perfect, but not too bad: https://forum.xda-developers.com/zenfone-6-2019/themes/asus-zenfone-6-google-camera-apk-gcam-t3932748/page23
I'm aware, but it's not a new version and colours are bad. Also, it doesn't support 12MP (it's a resized image from 48MP).
By the way, the Google Drive link doesn't work anymore, but keep copies of Xenius apks on my site if someone wants to try it.
