What makes the camera on Google Pixel phones so good has more to do with software than with hardware. Google’s image processing is far ahead of its rivals so that it can boast a competitive portrait mode with just one camera. Thanks to the Camera NX mod, it is possible to obtain similar results in many other phones, including those that are not from Google.
Version 5.2 of the official Google Camera NX application was released last week and removes some features of Nexus 6P and 5X of 2015. They lose HDR + (probably because the new version was created with Android P in mind, which none of those phones will get it) and Lens Blur (who has been replaced by Portrait Mode in the Pixels). The latest update of Camera NX brings them back.
That’s not all you get with version 7.4; Check out the complete change list below:
All the features of V7.4. Based on Google Camera NX 5.2
1. Returns HDR + on Nexus 5X / 6P.
2. Re-add the lens blur mode; now you have the portrait mode and the lens blur mode.
3. The EIS should return to normal in Pixel 1 since the EIS will be deactivated with 4K quality.
4. Use Google Photos to see the results again in the enhanced version.
1. The portrait mode needs a test in Android 7.1; maybe it will not work.
2. To see the moving pictures, you need to have Google photos installed and sign in to your account.
The improved version ZSL includes moving photos, a burst of diet, combination of photos of Google and all the characteristics of the version ZSL, require Android 8.0+,
The ZSL version contains ZSL HDR +, hybrid burst, slow motion at 240 FPS, a video prepared for 60 FPS and other features of OG Pixel. Is for Nexus 2015 with Android 7.1 or higher, if you do not use the photo in movement, you can also use this one.
1. Diet-burst will not choose the best photo as Smart burst (version improved by ZSL).
2. Camera NX needs the system signature and install it as a system application to show the HDR + process inside the Google photos, or you will see a black screen with a loading icon just after taking an HDR + photo.
There is also an included solution for EIS in the first generation of pixels and notes on what you will get depending on the version of Android you have. Phones with 8.0+ will get the best features.
