      • thank you for a quick reply Haneet. I asked because in text first it is Configs and later configs7 so I was confused.
        However neither one worked for me. In the end I have just installed gcam and use it without putting anything in that ( configurations ) folder otherwise it crashes?
        What is the use of that folder, does it enable gcam to use other lesnes on s21 ultra or what? Because it works without it and it is def def.improvement from s21 camera for lowlight anyway.

  1. Also one more question : Do you have “lens blur” feature of gcam active, I cant see it? Maybe it doesn’t exist in the 7th version that we have for s21 ultra?
