Doesn't work properly on Pixel 3a Xl with stock Android 11 (newest security patch). It doesn't contain any new features, only that included in 8.1 update from Google. I should be able to access things like Audio zoom right? But I can't.

Thanks in advance..

Poco X3 NFC user here too and I posted the same problems, except narrow and wide cam, I didnt mention that but you are right, they dont appear after toggling them ON in settings.
Could you please edit your comment to include which version of android you are running (example: MIUI Global 12.0.4 running Android 10, like in my case).

Also, could you enter the cam, try all the things you mentioned that dont work to create a log file for it, then go to your Gcam > logs folder and upload the most recent log to your edited post, as all that info is vital for the devs in troubleshooting problems.

Thanx in advance.

GCam_6beta.201115.1444build-8.0.101 Video not working when I open camera.narrow_cam and camera.wide_cam selections. If I close the selections It's not working again. I have to wipe data of Gcam to work video. Mi 9T Pro MIUI 12.01 Europe Global.

Is the zoom working correctly on the 8 Pro cause it shows it at 2.2x. I thought it was 3x or is the OP camera app doing some digital zooming.

Congrats, amazing job once again.
Working just fine on my Xiaomi Mi 9, however I've got 2 questions:
-Will the 'switching between lenses' experience improve over Gcam7.X versions? (app reboots when switcing lenses)
-Will the distortion on ultra-wide shots be corrected as Pixel phones finally have these lenses?

Thank you.

Mi Note 10 Lite not working, locks up after booting. Arnova, in previous versions there was a problem with the light sensor on the Mi Note 10 Lite, which caused it to start up incorrectly, once dark and other times normally, turn off this sensor at startup.

    Google Camera Port
    by @Arnova8G2

    This is a support thread for apks created by Arnova8G2. Here you'll find basic instructions on how to use this port and how to properly report bugs.

    - The camera2 api needs to be enabled;
    - Most versions only work on Snapdragon SoCs, but some work on Kirin and Exynos processors;
    - 64 bit ROMs are a requirement;
    - Doesn't work on phones without RAW support (eg: some Sony devices);
    - Newer versions may work only on new Android versions. Old versions might be better for old Android versions;

    Known issues:
    - FAQs and troubleshooting

    - Slow motion is broken on some phones and Android versions;
    - Some devices have issues with their front cameras (eg: OnePlus 3/3T, 5/5T). You may have to install a fix (if available for your phone) or disable HDR+ on the front camera (setting only available on some apks);
    - Features on new Google Camera versions may take some time to be ported;

    How to report bugs:
    If possible, post on a thread for your phone (check this list or your phone's forum) or here if you can't find a thread for your phone. Please describe the issue and give details about your setup:

    - Phone, ROM, any fixes installed;
    - Name of the apk you're using;
    - Screenshots or video recordings of the bug if you're able to;
    - A logcat if there's a crash (How to save a logcat: video guide, advanced guide);
    - Steps to reproduce the bug/crash;
    - Mention @Arnova8G2 username;

    - Your report will be ignored if no logs or a good explanation is provided.
    - Arnova8G2 will do his best to fix bugs, but keep in mind that this is a free port and he also has his personal life.

    Example of a report:
    @Arnova8G2 Portrait mode crashes on my OnePlus 3 running LineageOS 15.1 (Android 8.1). I'm using "GCam_Pixel3Mod_1.1_build.6.1.013.apk".
    To reproduce, open the app, go to portrait mode using the front camera, and take a picture.
    Here's the crash log: <google drive link>
    Stable version

    Update from the latest version of BSG and TlnNeun
    - Add a toggle to choose Portrait Mode or Lens Blur
    - SlowMotion works on Pie (test on OP6/OP5/Mi5)

    I don't forget the samsung users, I received a lot of messages to fix this version.
