I did a few comparisons today. MWP 8.4.3 Beta 4 versus GOS-Cam v45.
My experience so far is that the GOS app runs a little smoother and is technically better optimized to utilize the compabilites of my Pixel 6 Pro's sensors. I think the MWP implementation is missing the configs for the newer Pixel sensors like the Samsung GN1. That is why the noise performance is a little worse in low-light situations. I tried a few noise models in the lib menu but couldn't find a perfect match yet. Have to do some further tests. Other than that there is not much difference in the final image quality. The MWP cam has has the advantage of customizability though:
- night mode, portrait, slow motion, time lapse, panorama, sphere
- HDR setting is broken on the Beta 4, unfortunately ... however, you can dive into the Lib-Patcher menu and customize the whole image processing to your liking: lots of options for sharpening, denoise, saturation and HDR
- a few other options DCI-P3, RAW images, grid overlay, live white balance and exposure slider, settings import/export and many dev parameters
There are a few bugs here and there. Overall the MWP build is quite usable though. Practially similar to the GOS implementation but with a much larger feature set.
I can share my custom profile as .xml if anyone with a Pixel 6 Pro wants to try it out.
PS: Stock Gcam is crap in my opinion. Yes, you have nightmode, portrait and all that stuff. But the HDR and image filtering is massively overemphasized and there is no way to turn it off or at least tame it to a reasonable level like the GOS implementation. Try to take a photo of a black and white cat, it's just a mess! :D
