im pretty sure even if on the gcam of your F3 you have the ption 4k 60fps its still recording at 30 fps(and the stabilisation always trick you to think you have high fps)

I tried that and no difference in real fps when you look at video it is still jerky...
Make longer video you will see 35fps average and 50mb/s like stock app on 30fps...

Try uploading a sample clip? I think the IMX582 4k60 is locked in hardware.
I made a few test videos with different settings: https://mega.nz/folder/zVljkA4S#IIvT6jlU-Xy0MdUYhGzOAA
The occasional skips are because of the notebook not the camera. It looks like the gcam 4k 30fps is only 30mbit/s and 4k 60 is around 50mbit/s like stock 4k 30fps.
If you go frame by frame you can clearly see that the 60fps does have more frames.
I also noticed that the stock cam is more zoomed in than the gcam (except for 1080p 60fps).

Very interesting, which gcam did you use? I'd like to try it out myself. 4k60 does look better than 1080p60 and about the same smoothness too. The reason why it's more zoomed in in stock camera is because of EIS, gcam usually has worse EIS than stock camera but it appears as you have disabled EIS in gcam.

I used this gcam: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-bsg/f/dl16/
And yes, I used EIS on the standard setting.

Has anyone managed to turn on image stabilization in GCAM? I tested several versions. I was able to turn on 60fps in 4K. However, EIS does not run in a rare resolution. The corresponding option in GCAM is of course enabled.

they are 5 versions, which one do u exactly download ?
I would also recommend the latest version. The version I linked was just what I had installed when I made the test.
For BSG cams the versions _snap _MGC _ENG... are afaik only different package names. That will allow you to install multiple gcams at the same time. So it doesn't really matter which of these you use.

It actually seems to be working.
I didnt saw any codec stuf. But was filming the ground and the the rocks while walking and changing between 30 and 60 and was night and day. Way smoother

I have very good news. I spent a few hours "playing" with Gcam. I was able to turn on stabilization at 60 fps in FHD and 4K resolutions - main camera. I made a few more improvements for better photo quality. If you want to enjoy video stabilization:
1. Install the latest version of BSG. I used this: https://1-dontsharethislink.celsoazevedo.com/file/filesc/MGC_8.1.101_A9_GVy_ENG.apk
2. Change Gcam settings with my file arkadia_Gcam_settings_ver2.xml

Sample photos and video with my settings. Of course, to see them in original quality, you need to download them to your computer.
