Camera2 API Questions - new user

Just ordered Moto Z3 Play XT1929-4 on a very good holiday deal, for delivery in January.  After making do for some years with an Android L phone limited to Camera1 API with help from some very good third-party camera apps,  I'm particularly looking forward to Camera2 API functionality:

- manual controls

- native RAW/DNG output, and possibly

- trying out the XDA Google Camera ports 


Some searching indicates the stock Moto camera app (apparently got an upgrade late 2018?) has some manual controls and "fun" settings, but does not produce native DNGs.  I've found APKs for three XDA ports for GCam but not any discussion of whether they're any good.  Would very much appreciate experience, suggestions or useful links on these Camera2 API topics.

Re: Camera2 API Questions - new user

Hi I2k4,


Google camera is only supported on Pixel devices. We do not support this app on our phones. We highly appreciate your feedback. I'll pass this along, but we can't guarantee any changes. Any links to download/sideload the Google camera app will be removed.


Moving to developers community


Best regards,
Motorola-Lenovo Support
