Hi does anyone know of a working gcam mod the more features the better, but I think night mode is the main feature I'm looking for.

I'm not aware of one that does more than the stock camera app in terms of image quality. I've tried a few Google Camera versions and they all have the same problems in low light.

Yes, I have. It wasn't one of the recent versions (6.0+), though. I think it was ~5.0 at the latest.

So I tried this one:

https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/gcam...32219.1950.apk

Seems to load, doesn't crash on the F1 with exceptions to video, portrait mode and the special ones like night sight... My problem is I haven't taken the plunge to see if I can enable camera2 API on my phone, I think this is part of the stumbling block as logcat while using this app says it doesn't have permissions to do certain things while using the camera (all app permissions are allowed, something else on the back end)

If you or anyone else has gotten root on the phone and want to enable camera2 API on this through build prop, you can test and see.

I like the app, it's fast as a camera and "lens blur" works but it's not using the second cam for bokeh effects. The portrait shots are supposed to detect the subject and blur everything else (Google magic) and night sight, well, just works wonders on Qualcomm devices. Just wished someone did the same treatment for the p60 mediatek chips.

I think it's pretty important to get the latest version of GCAM running on this device. I hope there's a way. The f1 play uses a 48mp Samsung chip and the S3 pro uses a Sony Chip (supposedly better). I almost got the S3 pro but couldn't justify the extra $100 to the cost.

They have GCAM running on the Moto g7 power and Xaoimi Redmi... and it has improved the camera on those phones immensely.

Info about how to enable camera2 API

Also, here's a phone that uses the hello p70 without camera2 API enabled and this person posted working GCAM versions (most likely limited functionality). I haven't tried them because my phone is still in the mail...

I, personally, don't use GCam myself but, you may be able to locate what you are looking for on the following area of the forum that's specific to the GCam Mod's.

Good Luck!

Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to try it yet. Hopefully this weekend I'll give it a try.
