    Hi,

    Good news: xdabbeb's camera MOD is now available as normal app (no root required) in xda-developers' forum.
    I've tested it and low-light performance is much better than stock camera (I use 'Intelligent Auto' mostly).
    Take a look, hope you find it useful.

    thanks, will try it out. The stock app is embarrassing to use in low light - hoping this is a big improvement!

    Has anyone tested out the advanced version with the custom drivers? I'm curious as to what functionality it adds. I would test it out myself but I can't find instructions on how to install the custom drivers. Downloaded the zip file but didn't know what to do from there.

    Installed version for non rooted ROM and bought advanced settings app.
    It ads what I've really needed : silent mode, better photos in low light conditions and memorizing settings after restarting of the camera app.
    This is how photo looks in the low light conditions, under ordinary light bulb.

    Yes you can install on non-rooted phone. It works just fine and is actually better than stock camera.

    That makes the g2 tempting now since I just wanted the new camera tech on the g3. The g2 would be much cheaper option

    XCam LG version 5.2.3 has been released

    CHANGELOG
    ------------------
    Version 5.2.3:
    NEW:: w10m video snapshot in 1080p/720p 30fps modes
    NEW:: manual focus in HDR, Burst, Panorama, Shot/Clear modes
    NEW:: bump 60fps min rate higher in low-light
    removed unused code/permissions (fix vs98511c & L crashes)
    fix HDR edge glitch for G3

    Version 5.1.2:
    BugFix: FC in Shot and Clear photo mode
    Slightly improved quality in a few shot modes

    Version 5.1.1:
    BugFix: FC when selecting Help in Photo mode
    Bypass Video mode popup for Sprint users

    Version 5.1.0:
    Support for XCam LG Settings donation app (available in Play Store)
    Control Jpeg Compression Level (Quality), Contrast, Saturation (stock G2 camera driver only) and Sharpness.
    Control minimum shutter speed for Burst Shot, Intelligent Auto, Night, Normal and Sports photo modes.
    Control other camera features such as the audio noise Gate, automatic night mode, focus Lock/video recording sounds, etc.
    Redesigned icon
    Sports mode now set at min 1/30 shutter speed

    Version 5.0.0:
    Initial release of completely new app

    Normal mode now bypasses the automatic switch to night mode in low light (and the corresponding multi-frame smoothed/nr photo).
    Improved image quality across the board

    I downloaded this mainly to get a higher bitrate while recording 4k. and i guess the higher FPS for 1080p is nice.

    have any of you tested how far you can push it and still get reliable video? i did a sample at 30mb and 40mb, they seemed to both average around 5mb per second. is their a sweet spot for size to quality.

    i am having 1 issue, the Xcam app will NOT record video to the external card. it will only record to the internal, then i have to move the video over. it is an older 16gb class 4 card. though i have a newer class 10 64gb i have yet to put into my phone, will this solve that problem? am i missing something else?

    side question, is there any way to record 4k at 60fps? or is that more of a hardware limitation? (i am assuming the current 4k records at 30fps)

    I think you should post those questions in the original XCam thread at xda-developers forums, so the author (xdabbeb) or any other could answer them.
