Many People Seem Swear By Google's Own Camera App, So That Could Be Worth Checking Out (There Are Various Ports Of It For Different Models Of Phone) - What Model Is Your Phone?

 

I Have Used It In The Past And Liked It, But I've Had No Luck Running It On My Wife's Nokia, Where It Always Crashes.

 

(BTW, This Capitalisation Style Thing Is Hard Going!)

Yes, that's the original; but, as mentioned, there are a range of ports available to enable many who don't have a Pixel to run this on their own phone - eg, see https://android.gadgethacks.com/how-to/get-pixels-feature-packed-google-camera-app-other-android-devices-0174264/

 

YMMV as to how well a specific port works on your phone, even if available; it worked pretty much perfectly for me on a OnePlus, but as mentioned it was rubbish on a Nokia.

Some manufacturers have specific algorithms that only work through their camera apps, hence the YMMV.

Personally I have a Samsung S8 and have tried damn near everything on the market and nothing whatsoever comes close to the built-in camera app.

 

For low light, I just use mobile Adobe Lightroom and manual mode to achieve the same results as gCam's Nightsight.

I always try to find a Google Camera port that works on my phone. This is because it seems the Google camera is the only one that has Photosphere mode where you can take a picture with a 360 view and then be able to pan around the entire picture
