Recently I have discovered you CAN record 1080p video at 60fps with stock MIUI8 just needs a few simple mods and specific camera apps.
This mod is only for and tested on the Redmi Note 3 Pro Snapdragon variant (kenzo).

For this mod to work you will need a few things to get started.
--- Select a Camera App ---
1. MotoCamera (MotoCamera_V6.0.62.1_ModV4.apk)
2. In MotoCamera set the mode to 1080 60 FPS in the settings pane (swipe from the edge to access options).
-OR-
1. FreeDCam -
2. you must edit the 1080p video profile in it's settings under 'video profile editor', set/change video frame rate to 60 fps and 'record mode' -> Normal then save, back in settings make sure Camera2 API is selected.
(3.3.147 is the current stable, but has a bug switching from 'pic' to 'video' and back where camera will appear to freeze, that bug is fixed in version 4 alpha but it has another have an issue saving some settings, I suggest starting with 3.3.147 to test it out.)
----
--System Changes---
3. you need to put the modified 'media_profiles_8956.xml' (found attached to this post) to enable 60fps on the device, use a file-manager like MiXplorer or similar to replace the file it can be found in /etc/ (make backups first), you can also just rename the old file to something like '/etc/media_profiles_8956.xml-'.
OR
I have also created a Magisk script for systemless modification., if you don't want to change / modify system files and happen to have Magisk installed just install the zip file in Magisk Manger - easy.

if you are going the non Magisk route then I suggest you backup your original media_profiles_8956.xml or just rename it to something else just incase you dislike the mod and want to return to stock.

4. reboot, and try it out, [email protected], you do need to be in nicely lit area otherwise fps will drop in low light -
.
Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 1920x1080 59fps 16931kbps [V: VideoHandle [eng] (h264 baseline L4.2, yuv420p, 1920x1080, 16931 kb/s)]
-

Pros:
60 FPS 1080p
very smooth such a noticeable difference
media_profiles_8956.xml mod ups the stock bitrate for audio to 320k , and raises video bitrate for better looking videos.

Cons:
Breaks stock camera video recording (camera app crashes)
still has the FPS lag in low light
60 FPS only works in specific camera apps, if you find others please let me know!

I have tested this on MIUI 8 Global beta 7.6.15, I am not sure the results of other OSes or MIUI versions, so as with any mod try it at own risk and make sure you have a working twrp or recovery.

good luck.
BTW there is also a 960P mod for 90fps, but it cannot coexist with the 1080p 60FPS mod .

For this tutorial we will need a few things first so follow along.
1. MotoCamera (MotoCamera_V6.0.62.1_ModV4.apk)

1. Another alternative is FreeDCam - but you must edit the 1080p video profile in it's settings, change video frame rate to 60 fps and record mode > Normal then save), also make sure CameraAPI2 is selected.

2. In MotoCamera select 1080 60 FPS in the settings (swipe from the side to access options).
3. Next is the 'hard' part you need to put a modified /etc/media_profiles_8956.xml to enable 60fps on the device (see attachment below), I have also created a Magisk script for systemless modification., if you don't want to change system files and happen to have magisk installed..,
if you are going the non Magisk route then I suggest you backup your original media_profiles_8956.xml or just rename it to something else just incase you dislike the mod and want to return to stock.

Is the breaking of the stock camera reversible by restoring xml file?

yeah, if you restore the xml stock camera should work like normal again, just remember to reboot after changing the xml files.

I tried
Open Camera,
Snap Camera HDR (all CameraAPI levels),
Lumio Camera (btw this is another awasome camera, if you want a steady 30fps video with no FPS drops even in low light, just no 60 FPS though ),
Camera MX
but they all record at 30 fps

So far the only ones known to work at 60 FPS are
Moto Camera
FreeDCam
cyngn.cameranext (not tested)
CameraNX (only for android 7.x)

Have you figured out any way to make the camera record stable 30FPS even in low light without any third party camera app? Thanks man, I'll be using Lumio Cam for now. Haha.

Edit: It actually works! Seriously, how can this camera do this kind of stuff?! It actually performs better, but kinda hated the UI lol, at least the video camera can be usable now.

for the 60 fps mod?, I have no idea I only tested it on MIUI 8, you can see if the /etc/media_profiles_8956.xml file exists on the LOS rom and try porting the modified settings over and try motocamera out.

Afaik there is no way to make stock camera app record steady 30 fps, I edited kenzo.xml inside of miuisystem.apk and I can enable a few extra options for the stock camera like video image stabilization, 4k video ..etc but still suffers the fps lag in dark, I also dislike the zero shutter lag feature of the stock camera since images come out looking like watercolor (when zoomed in), where if you compare a image that was taken with another camera like SnapCam or Lumio the water color effect will be gone and have more detail for far away objects (but at the cost of shutter delay) ,

btw I can make a magisk script for a miuisystem.apk with the stock camera mods enabled, but you might have to be on the same version of miui 8 (7.6.15) since I am not sure how often that file changes and if it can work across different miui8 versions
