Hey, I've started work on porting google camera onto Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Gcam development:
Changelogs and downloads:
Here are available versions: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/a.../dev-wyroczen/

Buffer fix:
Hey, so here it is, buffer fix for Redmi Note 8 Pro.
It's first version, not perfect yet. It will be available on celsoazevedo soon
Compatibility:
Android 9 MIUI
Android 10 Custom roms
Android 10 MIUI - untested
What it will give you?
It will fix lag in all gcam apps (mostly 7.x are affected because of no working in app fix yet).
Problems:
As it is first version, it has it's own flaws:
Aux cameras will be super smooth, main camera will still lag a little and sometimes hangs for less than a 1s.
Other bugs?
Please report every encountered bug on RN8P gcam telegram group.

Hello. Thank you for your work. The wide-angle camera and macro work fine in HDR + mode, the main camera does not want to start, the black screen

Here is first public available test version available: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/a.../dev-wyroczen/

As of now I'm not sure whether gcam can fully work on Mediatek device. Main camera has blackscreen as of now. HDR+ seems to work on Wide and Macro, but it needs further testing.
As I don't have this device, I can't check by myself whether some functions are working good or not. Feel free to test everything carefully Logs (from app on phone or adb logcat), and photo comparisons with stock camera app would be appreciated

This Mediatek chipset , is possible to develop custom ROMs? This chipset is no different than the others..

First of all thank you for your efforts.

I tried to test your version. Here you'll find the logcat output. I filtered using grep com.google.android.apps.camera to avoid too much noise. If you need specific test please tell me which steps i had to perform.

Hope this helps.

Hey, I'm gcam modder, not rom developer
It is possible to develop custom roms, kernels, and "other stuff" but it would be better to have full kernel source from xiaomi

I dont know how to get the logs, but I can describe overall workability.

As said: when option RAW_SENSOR checked in FIX settings, there are full working HDR+ and HDR+ Enchanced on aux Camera - Wide and Macro, and on the front camera.
With alternative config Night Sight is also working, on three cameras. So as the Portrait Mode.
Also capture RAW-dng, seems to be ok.

Noticed issues:
Crash on video
Crash when trying to get to Settings from aux cameras, but if in Aux Cameras settings check the switch "Disable Settings Mode", button Settings is still present and there is no crash anymore.
There are problems with initialization of aux cameras. They starting from time to time. It can be a black screen or loading animation or non-active shutter button. Switch to Front Camera and back helps in 95% of cases.
Problem with deinitialization of camera session. Safety app is sending notification that "The Camera is using Camera in the background", even if forcibly shutdown gcam through the app manager. It causes another system bug, with the notification LED blinking or constantly on with no visible reason..
For now, all that I tested or remembered
