How to Use Snap Camera's LLM to Take Good Pictures



Snap Camera HDR In this guide I'll explain how to use Snap Camera HDR's Low Light Mode (LLM) to take good photos, specially in low light conditions.

Snap Camera is available on the Google Play Store for a small fee, but can be downloaded for free from the development thread on XDA Developers or 4PDA. If you find it to be useful, consider to buy the app or donate to the developer.

As of January 2018, Snap Camera 8.1.4 seems to be the best in terms of noise and sharpness, but this guide should work on future versions too.

Instructions and settings:

1. Install and open the Snap Camera app.

2. Choose the "auto mode" (A) (img).

3. Open the settings menu (img), go to "Other" (img) and:

The app should restart automatically to apply your changes.

4. Open the app settings again and go to "Photo" (img):

A note about the "Low Light Frames" option:

This is the number of photos used to create the final photo. "32" is better for low light conditions, but it takes more time to capture, will add some more blurness if you move, and it takes more time to process the final picture. It's also overkill for day light photography (something between 5 and 11 should be enough).

Higher values are better for bad lightning, lower values are faster and do the same job when lightning is good. Do your own tests and use what's better for you.
