Yes you read it correct our long wait is over now. Now we too can enjoy the amazing processing of gcam. Everything works like a charm and there is a significant improvement in the quality. I'm sure this will get better as this is obiously an early build.

And it's not the pixel 2 camera but it's the pixel 3 one!..

Here's what works:

*Portrait mode on both front and back cams(only on humans)
*HDR+, HDR+ enhanced
*Panorama (super glitchy for now)
*And pretty much everything else
*Night mode ( slight improvements only)
*Photo Sphere

Here's what doesn't work:

*Live Google lens

At first the images will look dead.So after you install it you need to increase the saturation. Go to settings , bsg mod settings , saturation and change saturation of front and back cam.

Literally all the credit goes to @xdaakhil for digging this up. If you want to thank someone thank him.

Well my thanks button is down there too 😊

Working on :
Honor 9 Lite
Honor 7X
Honor P Smart
Mate 10 Lite
P20 Lite
Honor 6x

keep testing


Edit: video and photos sphere works after changing the default storage to internal. Don't know why it doesn't work with the SD cardπŸ˜…

Photo sphere is also very buggy

Photos cannot be clicked without enabling HDR+ or HDR+ enhanced.

There is a pinkish tint on highlights. This can be overcome if you guys focus on the lit(highlights) part by tapping on the viewfinder.

This port can work without root or any modifications.

All photos were taken indoors in relatively low lights. So considering that it's pretty cool. Just wish the video gets fixed soon.

To those of you who who don't know why portrait only work on humans:

Gcam doesn't utilise the secondary camera that comes with the device as pixel phones have a single lens setup. The portrait is completely software based. You can check this, cover the secondary lens and click a portrait pic, it'll work!

This is also very useful as we will get good quality blur and edge detection like flagships in our budget phones as the software processing is the same in both apps.

So the camera cannot detect Dept between the subject and background as it only uses one lens.

Hello,

please, tell me, did you find optimal settings of gcam for our phone? Saturation and HDR+? I am testing it but I am not finding the perfect combination yet.

Well im also a bit confused about the perfect match.
But this is what I use:

Pixel 3 as the input method in both front and rear cams(for the super res zoom to work)
Saturation, rear cam highlights 2.7 shadow 2.9
Front cam highlights 2.2 shadow 2.6

Tweak around yourself but I couldn't get the cam to take a picture like it is shown in the viewfinder and the skin tones are better in the viewfinder than the final photo ( the details are far better though)
