GCam or Google Camera on Vivo phone enhances the picture quality beating the stock camera app. This is a one stop location which provides downloads to GCam for all available Vivo phones.
Moreover, let me bring this to the table that at least 8 or 9 out of 10 times I have seen the images produced by the GCam Port is better than the images produced by the Stock Camera of any Vivo phone. And, you have to trust me on this, because I have tested almost all the major Android phones including the new ones.
If you already know about Google Camera and it’s image processing capability you don’t need an introduction and may proceed straight to find a download link for your Vivo phone. If you are a first time user then you may want to know the features of the Google Camera or better known as GCam.
What you get on a Google Camera for Vivo Phone?
Google Camera is designed to work only on Google Pixel and legacy Nexus phones by default and not on any Vivo phones. But, because of its unmatched image processing capabilities it has attracted more developers and users to port it for many Vivo phones which is known as GCam port. Google Camera Port on a Vivo phone uses its unbeatable software processing which creates stunning pictures than the stock camera app.
Let’s have a look at the key features of Google Camera which makes it stand ahead of all other camera applications.
The Night Sight mode
This is one of the major feature which is why the GCam is popular among the Android users. Night Sight mode captures unbelievably more light than any other camera application available on Android even on darker conditions.
Below are some images captured in Google Camera Night Sight mode:
The Astrophotography Mode
Available on Google Camera 7.0 and later version which is designed to work only in low light conditions to capture better and cleaner photos of the celestial bodies such as sky and stars. Astrophotography Mode works on Night Sight mode with long exposures to capture more light and a lot of information of the scene.
Portrait mode is used to create bokeh or background blur effect. Usually this is created using a larger aperture lens in DSLR which is not possible in Mobile phones. This is the reason Mobile phones use a secondary camera to evaluate the depth by detecting the focused subject in image and creating a blur effect on the rest of the image which is out of focus.
The biggest problem in this technique is detecting the edges of the subject in focus and out of focus where most of the camera applications fail. The portrait mode on Google Camera has an awesome edge detection algorithm which creates DSLR like natural bokeh effect there by making it the best in class camera application.
Below are some images captured in Google Camera Portrait mode:
HDR+ image processing
Every image captured in HDR+ mode is processed out of multiple images with different exposures. This preserves much detail of the image captured and also creates a more contrast image. A better contrast image meaning not over or under exposed image unlike many camera applications.
