cstark27’s GCam Port – What’s so special?

Before the release of the Google Pixel 4, the camera of Pixel phones was the only feature that was keeping them at the top. That, however, changed with the Pixel 4 because the Pixel 4’s camera failed to deliver. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 consistently remained the top camera smartphones throughout their release year. These phones were declared the best camera smartphones by DxOMark.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 3 had only 1 camera sensor at the back, and that was better than 2 and 3 cameras of flagships of other phone makers. It wasn’t the hardware, but Google’s software optimization that helped the Pixel phones to take those stunning pictures.

The Portrait and Night Sight mode of the Pixel smartphones are still the best. It will take some time for the competitors to beat that.

Google’s stock camera application has all the features that an average user needs in a phone’s camera. But the Pixel phones are not limited to those few features only. There’s a whole lot of features that you don’t have in the stock Pixel camera app, but you can add them. That’s what cstark27 has been doing for years. 

cstark27’s GCam unlocks all the camera features of the Pixel phones. You can add a plethora of new features in your Pixel phone. Some of the top features of the cstark27’s GCam port include the Pixel phone’s ability to record a 4K timelapse, setting the Portrait, Night Sight, or Camera mode as the default, ability choose the zoom level in portrait mode, and changing the shutter speed and ISO of the phones.

There are some features of specifically added for the Google Pixel 1 and Pixel 2. These features include the HEVC format, Motion Photos, Photobooth, and many others. You can take a look at all the features listed below.
