is the path of camradrive same as on c905 , do l copu past on same place like (IFS/SETTINGS/CAMERA)?

Posted by Lightspeed_x
@kronos12: Yes, AFAIK, file/folder structure is the same on all A200 models.

Posted by kronos12
thanx Lightspeed_x

My cameradrive is curent 1.7 as a default sonyericsson driver...so is this 1.4 better then default?

Posted by Lightspeed_x
I havent tested it, because i dont own the phone, but i would say it is, since its based on the 1.7 (or 1.6, not sure about it) stock version.

Dont mind version numbers, since both are produced separately, so, versions are not comparable....

About your previous post, the file to replace is Camdriver0.dat, Camdriver1.dat is the driver for the front camera...


Please post a couple pictures if you decide to give it a shot

Posted by kronos12
Here are samples wth original 1.7 SonyEricsson drivers





I have to say that the quality of pictures is not near the one taken with c905...with this driver...
Picture are resized l will shoot same background pictures tomorrow...now is night here so l cant shoot pic with new driver 1.4 from first post...

Hi kronos12, now try the modded camdriver, and check if you see some improvement...

Posted by kronos12
This two pictures are with new driver 1.4 and l am not satisfied with it in this initial couple of pic....



There is not enough sharpness for my taste

Posted by kronos12
Strange i have in (IFS/SETTINGS/CAMERA) cameradriver0.dat then cameradriver1.dat and cameradriver2.dat????

what stand cameradriver2.dat????????????????

Posted by Luhccas-U1a
@kronos12
Don't touch it... Just drag'n drop camdriver0.dat in ifs/settings/camera.
Don't delete nothing.

Posted by kronos12

Sharpness is necessary to take specific photos for better detail the image to be studied and of all the pictures here only newspaper pic that may have an idea of sharpness function.Sharpness can be compared as the detail of something.
Original driver automode Sharpness reseted (00)
Only in scene document Sharpness is (08)
If you want to change the values of sharpness to the maximum and go testing the sharpness. So you see the object details.

Hi brazzukas am back again
I'm using this driver and really the quality is amazing congrats!!! but hope you will motivate them to release the manual settings for k850 or c902 and it can develop one for the W995 would be nice

thanks for everything


Posted by NoroBiik

Nice , another modded W995 cam driver. Think I"ll try this one since it's a more conservative mod, I don't want to change too much away from the current color balance the stock driver provides.

Brazzuka - do you think you can replicate the change Dirty made to the video resolution of the W995? He upped it slightly from 320x240 to 388x ??? (forgot what the latter value was). It maintained the stability while upping the resolution. If I remember right , he said this was a natural progression in the video value. In fact, my PC cam has this as one of it's standard resolutions.

Posted by kronos12
Driver is ok,still not like c905 because c905 is cyber shoot but for such a small phone w995 is quite capable camera phone..even video is good-perfect sound in video,if any one has some questions l am here.


Posted by Lightspeed_x
@kronos12: What would you say its the best improvement from the camdriver comparing it to the stock drivers?

@Brazzuka's:
I found a bug in ES 1.4 while using macro mode combined with manual iso and flash off... When using Sepia, Negative or Black and White, the flash is on regardless of me turning it off...

Could you please check if you get the same results as me
EDIT: after testing a little more, i found out that it also happens in all auto. From my observations i would say that the auto flash function is kicking in in place of flash off. I mean, instead of flash staying off, it activates (maybe because of the camera light sensor). The downside is that photos taken under these conditions come out over exposed, maybe because settings like shutter speed/ISO are automatically set to work without flash, and when flash fires, pictures get too much light.

I hope this problem can be solved, because otherwise, this driver is really good, i like it a lot, i feel color reproduction is near perfect in virtually all conditions (esp. low light), so if these bugs could be sorted, we might have the best camdriver for W995 to date.

I mean, instead of flash staying off, it activates (maybe because of the camera light sensor). The downside is that photos taken under these conditions come out over exposed, maybe because settings like shutter speed/ISO are automatically set to work without flash, and when flash fires, pictures get too much light.

I hope this problem can be solved, because otherwise, this driver is really good, i like it a lot, i feel color reproduction is near perfect in virtually all conditions (esp. low light), so if these bugs could be sorted, we might have the best camdriver for W995 to date.


Led Flash "Forced" Turn on:
-Led flash turn on in any condition or situation
-Led flash with High light turn on [enable]
-Led flash with Low light turn on [enable]

About Colors Correction works together with Led Flash:
-Led Flash turn on [enable] in your W995 the colors correction off [disable]
-Led Flash turn off [disable] in your W995 the colors correction on [enable]

Manual EV original and Manual Shutter Speed LED Flash
Now you "user" have the freedom to have two controls in your hands.

Scene Night (Twilight Landscape) now with fast shutter speed slow/fast and more the scene nigth with shutter speeed 1s and you "user" can to control the iso using the key EV +/- so now manual iso is available only for this scene Night (Twilight Landscape), for the other scenes the EV +/- default.

The downside is that photos taken under these conditions come out over exposed, maybe because settings like shutter speed/ISO are automatically set to work without flash, and when flash fires, pictures get too much light.
Try to test the shutter speed led flash for flash using EV +/- when the led flash turn on and see which is the best condition for you.

example: decrease shutter speed led flash for flash ev -03 -0.7 -1.0... So we can decrease shutter speed led flash maybe in the next version if you want course and adjust the others functions too but for this is need to test by complete the driver.



@Lightspeed_x
Hi, i found two folders in the rar file i downloaded, I have a question regarding de EN.LNG file: Where do i upload it and what is its purpose?

Thanks in advance!


Here is purpose: effects = manual iso

ISO MANUAL FOR W995

Replaced *effects by iso manual
//==========================EFFECTS=ISO MANUAL
// Property 8, Effects=ISO MANUAL
0 => normal = ISO Auto,
1 => negative = ISO 100
2 => solarize = ISO 200
3 => sepia = ISO 400
4 => black&white = ISO 800
//==========================EFFECTS=ISO MANUAL

You can apply here:
Files *. lng (language)
Should be placed in this folder:

TPA PRESET SYSTEM LANGUAGE

Drag and drop the files "pb.lng" and "en.lng" folder above.

@Brazzuka's: Thanks for your reply, i've read your post, however, i think my situation is a bit different. For example, i know that there is no Auto mode for flash, i know now its forced ON or forced OFF.

Here it is where i think things are not behaving according to one would expect. A picture is sometimes better than words, so i will upload a couple pictures so you can see what i am trying to explain to you:

ISO 100 (Manual), Macro, Flash OFF



ISO 200 (Manual) Macro, Flash ON



As you can see from the pictures, in the first case, i turned off the flash, however it fired anyways, causing the picture to come out badly overexposed, in the second picture, i turned the Flash ON and the picture came out better exposed. (I was playing with the scenes and auto mode because i had just uploaded the driver last night)... What i've been able to see from the pictures i have taken from last night and today is that in certain situations flash activates when it is not supposed to (When OFF).

My question is: Is this by design?, or maybe a revision of the camdriver would solve the situation.

Also, if it is by design, is there a way to make the LED flash to work again in Auto/OFF?... would this affect color correction or any other improvement implemented in the driver?

By the way, color correction is excellent in the driver (Especially in low light)


--Sorry for the long post, i wanted to explain myself as clear as possible.

In fact the flash is "forced" or turn on when activated will then fire the flash when it fires in any conditions or situations of luminosity, when the flash is disable this off in any situation.But you took the photos in macro mode with ledflash and without ledflash and normal mode you tested? because we tested the flash is working normally but can to be some bug. Try to test pics with led flash without led flash normal mode and after with macro mode.
About colors correction...It would not affect the colors correction normal because is optimized with the driver.
Led flash off = colors correction normal on and colors correction led flash off
Led flash on = colors correction normal off and colors correction led flash on
You can play with the colos corrections too changing the values.

cheers

hey brazzukas I have read rumors that you were able to work with the W995 VGA video record resolution, How's the video? has good speed? any chance of sharing this with us
ahh and am still waiting for a manual settings too
nics pics mate... snow snow time snow

we are trying to work on a video resolution but doesn´t know if cif or vga and we are trying to synchronize the best possible video and it doesn´t interfere too much in the rest of the driver.Believe it is possibly the only model that will support high resolutions and even then sometimes bug unfortunately.
About manual settings is difficult to establish a first date, first the driver has to be all optimized for to be used with the manual settings if not, anything worth having one manual settings, well this is our opinion.
We trying to find another function the supposed contrast real that work on these models, let's see if we have luck with that.

ledflash w995 really very nice, powerful ledflash

Failed smart contrast like a function
Failed in the attempt to work with the supposed register real contrast in this models
smart contrast don´t work or don´t have response like a function, well at least that's what we see.

Thanks to Brazzuka's and Jocks!!!!

Downloading and testing


Posted by Lightspeed_x
Preliminary Tests:
auto mode, flash ON:


auto mode, flash OFF:



I think the picture with flash on is a bit darker than it should, will make more test to see if i can identify a pattern...
I think maybe the driver is being influenced a little by the light sensor, the lamp is bright enough, however the rest of the scene is not. By the way, i focused on the gray beam of the table at the right (the second one)...


Twilight Landscape:

This picture came out quite nice too, for the light levels in my room, it looks even a bit brighter than it currently is, nice job!


All Auto, Macro mode:


I REALLY liked how this picture came out, virtually no noise and balanced colors, pretty close to the original, if not identical.

P.D.: Had to resize the pictures due to the 2 MB limitation, here it cannot be completely seen, but that macro shot came out really sharp and with little noise... I hope auto function with flash on could be tweaked a bit.



EDIT:
I found something interesting, i checked the properties in the next two pictures and found out that in portrait mode the camera chose ISO 320 while in auto mode, the camera chose ISO 160, being the same scene, with the same conditions, shouldnt ISO numbers be closer? (just a thought)...

First photo, Portrait, flash ON:



Second, Auto, flash ON:



Also, i noticed a small bug, when changing scenes, sometimes the viewfinder does not update, for example, changing from auto to twilight landscape does not update, also from sports to document the same happens (try it in a normal to low lit room to see it better)

In the Snow video it looks like the W995 hardware (or driver) is having a hard time keeping up with a 640x480 resolution while moving the camera view. I'm impressed it even was able to capture video at that resolution , is there a viable res between 320x200 & 640x480?

thanks brazzuka's update camdriver really really do quality work congratz
the vga video recording is amazing and the pics are more sharp and real colors
awesome and happy 2010 with news surprises i hope

yes, the model has difficulties in recording with quality reasonable resolution VGA. between 320x200 & 640x480? Yes res CIF if you want

good pics in low light, impressive is the ability of the W995, is need takes a lot of balanced situation and I think the W995 has that. sharp, shutter speed and iso balanced with low light.The best way to achieve these results is a driver fully optimized for the task. Happy 2010 to all and Vacations here will go vacations vacations time!!!

Almost every camdriver produses great close/macro pics...So please don't post these kind of pics in order to justify your camdriver integrity!!!We need another kind of pics....
Cheers!!!

You're only seeing macro shots here?
please don't post these kind of pics in order to justify your camdriver integrity!!!
We do not justify, the photos justified and are the best evidence for this
We need another kind of pics?? Whos? What kind of photos you are willing to see?
Almost every camdriver produses great close/macro
My VGA cam produce good photos in macro mode, nobody denied this.
Why do not you put your favorite photos in many ways so?
are waiting for this
