Are there any here who compared himself Google Camera from E A1 and 5 laptop?
I would like to hear a real review and not a reference to the video

though perhaps not quite correct to call it an icon rather an option?

Google Camera - a software rather than a lens array or a camera module. This means that it will take photos according to whose physical camera (camera module on your smartphone) best.

Conventional camera better with laptop Ridmi 5.
Objects requiring a "telephoto" Optics in the daylight will get better at Mi A1 because at pH 5 it is not there.

* Hight,
Where do you see megapixel mode? Or purely for photo resolution?

Rep: (928)
4000 * 3000 = 12,000,000 pixels.

Rep: (143)
This question is not whether 4K support appeared in the MIUI cell? And if there is information on this subject? : Thank_you:

UPD. Timelapse can record? Slow motion only 720 @ 120?

Actually, I do not understand why the Chinese do not activate camera2api default.

Laziness? Vera? Marketing? Hands?

Rep: (36)
Correctly I understand that gcam only after unlocking and installation TVRP can be put?

* kanfeto, not a typo. After activation cam2api and supported by the camera application - shoots in RAW.
But that's pretty difficult to get someone sent the files to see. Very tight ...
With Mi A1 raw'ok I have collected with their grief in half. I must say that in general, raw not go far wrong, as you might imagine. That's interesting to see the po with RN5, although I think that at about the same level, a little better, the same optics and sharpness can be assessed ... Because from A1 on the main unit have the edges, the corners of the image problemki. Although judging by the reviews, comparisons "as is" A1 will porezche under normal lighting conditions. At night, of course, the A1 will merge.

This is important to the photo on the front camera in the application GCam.Problema frontalki is no picture or black foto.V result of the experiments it was found that photo stably works in burst mode, long-press on the button "make a photo" on the screen or the volume keys.

Just on the p5 + it in the dark black. What I mean is that in the absence of the light source obtained by the noise

HDR helps solve the problem but still

I have not yet found the focus to infinity. A phone in the dark, the focus does not catch.

Oh, well, in the center of the circle darker, I think because of the chase Xiaomi for Apple's (on presentation proud lighter photos of comparison) and that by the exposure, and other software tricks sought (IMHO) it does not matter, but here plays an important role themselves "large pixels", but if you remove all of the add-leaving to take out some pixels would have made a more honest picture of the way, the darker here and fotoshumodavom something namudrili so-called effect of smear brush noticeable in low light. That's all it is necessary to clean up. I think it can be put into the native camera there is the same where and reign line activation 4k, there's a lot of unknown.

Soon I am going to fold here 2 shots in RAW from one angle. 1) in ideal conditions for the camera-sunny day 2) complex conditions- the lack of light (just say 1) pale dregs 2) porridge colored)

There is more emphasis on the fact that this camera phone and not a camera. Picture format "took and made" no space for creativity and manual postobrabotok.

Pictures in 2uh bars with dim lighting on note5 china, global, gcam hdr + advanced
Where the black ink, so it is in the background - black wall with zero illumination. And in general, the picture is much lighter than in reality, while in the soap is gone, the noise is minimal - I am happy. It remains to frontalku gcam connect (flies), although the new firmware seems tweaked (not yet tested). With the main camera the day I would like more colors.
PS just that, in the photo's nephew)
