It's especially useful if your phone is bricked or is stuck in bootloop

4. Wait until the flashing process finishes.

Please read the 'Known bug' line. You tried to use the camera in very dark conditions that you just forgot to mention in your comment.

Hi, umidigi, I like the big improvement of camera app, when taking a photo, the process is more efficient, and the AI is really functional. But you remove the Professional mode, I think this is necessary for users to adjust parameters, especially in some situation I want to adjust the white balance.

There are somthing I hope for improvement 1. add editing tools for screenshot 2.add the shortcut on the desk for screencapture and sweep.  And could you tell me what the difference between Duraspeed and Appblocker?

Sad to hear that, try Restore default settings(in camera settings) and check the camera screen brightness. Or  long tab the camera app then clear storage. If camera still have problem, maybe flash back to official rom and wait for the next update.

hi, thank you. There was little information on the known bugs but i knew it was a beta and was hoping i was lucky not to get any of the nasty ones.

I didnt take a snapshot of what my camera was seeing but the known bug described was the camera freezes at iso over 6k which may be what happened, only it didnt freeze it just got locked to iso so low I can only see lightbulbs, tried to "nudge" it out of this mode by switching quickly, opening and restarting the app and clearing storage and cache.
Unfortunately I didnt hang around longer to find any other bugs.

- Still the slomo mode needs some kind of fix because it only shows like a super blurry low res unfocused video, very greyscale-like, while switching back to normal video looks well normal. It is the same as the current newest official rom version.

- Someone in another forum (regarding F1 play and s3 pro) said snap camera with API 2 enabled and denoise off gave a lot of detail back (with noise)

-Can denoise on/off (or default, low quality, high quality) be added as a manual function?
-Wavelet denoise would be cool if possible too
(i read the research article on it)
-image stacking (stack multiple image on top of eachother to increase detail and reduce noise, or to multiply lighting into one image). On DSLR you can take one image with shutter cap on and one image without and denoise based on the black image with noise.
- I forgot if HDR was added to the beta but something that would be nice to have too later

These were functions I found on free camera app OpenCamera (wavelet denoiser) and paid app snap camera HD (Denoise on/off) and image stacking up to 32 frames in under 1 second. Maybe you guys can find any ideas or techniques being used on those that can be used.

* when choosing 48mp camera then setting it to 12mp in setting, switches automatically over to 12mp module which is like pressing the 12mp button on the viewfinder.
when choosing 48mp camera then switching to 8mp uses the 48mp module which takes pretty good pictures and it looks less blurry because of less noise that the denoiser has to compensate for.
*sorry for possibly sounding like that douchebag professor at college, but i though i'd add that since the quad bayer matrix on the sony sensor the optimal megapixel is actually around 12 megapixel for the sony imx586 exmor sensor. So actually if it is possible to switch to 12mp on the 48mp module, that would take its optimal image. there is actually 4 pixels that create 1 bigger pixel and the AI engine knows this and try to seperate them to create 48mp, so this is great for low light shots(at 12mp) and with good lighting conditions @ 48mp


that was a lot of text. But dont take anything negative there is a lot of information here that can be studied and i am trying to contribute because I love this phone but the camera modules need some manual control because the software does not switch properly and I included possible workarounds.

Cheers!!

tried all the usual things, and the brightness will also get stuck and it doesnt change even if you manually check it to max. The rom doesnt affect just the stock camera, it will affect all the camera apps since i tried them all with the same bug and I reflashed back to the previous official version for now.
