Gcam on Sony Xperia II Sailfish os 4.1

The whole time I was wondering if it is possible to use the GCam because I think that you have a little better pictures
And it works I haven’t discovered a bug yet

~ install this first GitHub - lukaspieper/Gcam-Services-Provider: App faking only the absolute necessary Apis to use Gcam without Play Services (This is needed because we don’t want gapps =P)

~ Install this GCam Nikita: NGCam_7.4.104-v2.0

All 3 cameras work great
so that you can also view the pictures you should select third-party app gallery in the settings because we don’t want goggle photos
I wish everyone happy taking photos

I tried it on XA2 Plus running SFOS 4.1, doesn’t work… :frowning:

It’s a shame but good to know

@hamiltonr yes, unfortunately, XA2 cannot handle 64bit android apps yet, and gcams above version 3.2 are only 64bit.

You saved the day!

Tried it and it works great. Photo quality, specifically HDR, is nice and better then open camera.

You linked a tmp file, here’s the full link I tried: Nikita: NGCam_7.4.104-v2.0

Many thanx I have added the correct link

how can i change cams? pressing the round arrows crashes the app. tia

Hi
I had that problem too
Empty the app’s cache and then set up the cam
Go under settings → advanced → auxiliary camera
And activate the first three lenses

Then it should work

This GCam works too

For me with Nikita: NGCam_7.4.104-v2.0 kept running into issues launching “selfie cam” whilst no such problems with Wichaya: GCam_8.1.101_Wichaya_V1.0.apk

Hmm, while everything else seems to work, switching between multiple cameras crashes GCam. Cache clear no help. Anything else to look into?

You can try a different version of the nikkita 1.9 or the Gcam 8.1
