I've tried quite a few gcam ports and I've found this version to be the best. The only issue I've found is the preview image freezes when using selfie night mode. It still takes a picture ok just the preview image freezes. It seems to be a common issue across all the ports I've tried.

Yep, been using this one also. Big improvement over the stock camera app!

Default app likes to just mesh colours together and makes it look pretty bad and blurry, but this port makes photos have much more detail.

I've just tried the Parrot043_v7 version and can confirm that night mode using selfie camera works perfectly on this one. There are a lot more options in the settings menu also regarding white balance and astrophotography etc.

Strange, I tried using that but the front camera night mode just froze. It still takes a photo, but it freezes after you choose that mode.

I swapped to this one, doesn't have the fancy features in the one you linked but it seems to work https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfil....2_TlnNeun.apk

Yes you are right, it does still freeze. It's really strange, in good lighting the front camera won't freeze when switched into night mode which is why I thought it worked, I was in a lit room at the time. If the environment is darker, the front camera preview still freezes like it always did.

Does the GCAM port give you the option of 1080/60fps for video?

I don't have the phone yet so am not even sure what the stock camera app options are.

Thanks

Well, the port I use does have a 60fps option, but the actual video itself doesn't look that smooth.

I'm sure another port will pop up soon enough with proper support (as this one has the option to enable 4k, but really it bumps it up from 720p to 1080p).

Thanks for that, it's good to know as I purchased it online assuming it would have the capability.

I was looking at other phones with the 665 SOC like the Xiaomi Note 8t and that has the 1080/60fps option in the stock camera app whereas Oppo doesn't for some reason.

I just checked the Oppo website and it doesn't look like the camera supports 60fps https://www.oppo.com/au/smartphone-a52/specs/

Although not sure if a Gcam port can "enable" it down the track.

I realised that after I purchased it of course

The Xiaomi Note 8t added 60fps after an update so it wasn't there initially either, maybe Oppo will do the same.

GCAM sounds way better anyway so hopefully the 60fps smoothness issue gets sorted.

Haha, such is the nature of the bargain priced beast, too good to pass up so you buy it on a whim!

But yes I'm sure there'll be a Gcam port popping up to solve the issue soon enough.

Plus it launched with Android 10, bound to be updated like the Xiaomi
