After few tests, all work great with MGC_8.1.101_A9_PV4_Eng.apk ++ BSG-PV4-Lupo-conf-2021090703.xml but the custom lib libgcastartup8.1_mNR70W19T28.so make the selfie mode on normal picture crashing. Reload the default lib fix the issue, will let you know if i find a way to fix.

I haven't tested the selfie mode, thanks for the information!
P.S. This config is too old, test the latest one from the signature, many things changed.
My bad, i have indeed the conf from your signature ( MGC_8.1.101_A9_PV4_MGC wwith BSG-PV4-Lupo-conf-2021091601.xml and libgcastartup8.1_mNR70W19T28.so).

switch to video switch to sefli switch back to camera and its working :) no crash

Indeed, it's a workaround, but need it need to be done everytime !

Has anyone been able to get the flash working properly with any Gcam port? It's super dim and timing isn't great when taking low light picture. I assume it's a hardware compatibly issue, but let me know!

:)
IMHO photos look a bit too dark...
The colours are great, but the lighting seems a bit too dark. Is there a setting I could tweak to my personal taste?

Have anyone tried the LMC camera? Came across this while going through a telegram group : Join «Redmi Note 10 Pro/Max | Photography ™» on Telegram: https://t.me/RedmiNote10Pro_MaxPhotography

Attached are for the order : LMC, stock and MGC 8.1 with lupo's config and custom lib

I'll leave it with the pros to play around and figure whether it's a good camera.

While using Gcam in redmi note 10 pro my only complaint was that the pictures look dark even in good lighting, people's faces were straight up bad and there was also not good stabilization in all video modes.and also other thing in astrophotography they were not taking the full 4 minutes of exposure they were only starting from 3min or lower so quality was a bit less.


So turns out it could all be fixed by a CONFIG file. I tried many config file and yes the were a bit stable but they couldn't give me satisfaction pictures were still darker than stock.

Then I just remembered that my friend makes Gcam ports for the GOOGLE pixel ports. So I told him make me a config in which photos are bright ,faces are bright, stabilization works on all modes, and astrophotography always takes 4min exposure everytime and gave him the Gcam version I was using(I think it was GCAM version 7 ) . And after some time he gave me the config file and I was soo surprised by the results 😮. It was absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just found my best Gcam and thought I should post here 🎉🎉🎉🎉 if anyone else wants to try it here is the link . Cheers

Do share the camera version and if you are using any library as it is hard to compare across different setups.

Ok here is the version of Gcam that I use and I have also linked the config here too for convenience and pls I want your responses after clicking photos with this CONFIG and this specific version of Gcam.After applying the Config don't change anything and you will get extraordinary results.
(BTW this is my first post on XDA ☺️)

Tap around the cam trigger and select

Can you pls share some before and after pics with my config then people would be really able to see the difference. I personally wanted to share the before and after but last night I spilled coffee all over it and now it won't open. I'm pretty sure it said splash resistance IP53 while buying but it still broke😥

And to use the config in this version you have to first copy it to the configs 7 folder then tap between the space in shutter button and photo preview (just like in any othe. Gcam)

Thank you for your hard work and nice presentation. I have a question. I just checked BSG apks page (below) but coudn't find PV4 version. Is it your version?

    Few more camera comparison tests:

    01 BSG GCam Mod latest 8.1 version & GCam conf but NO Custom Lib
    02 BSG PV4 GCam MOD & GCam conf & GCam Lib
    03 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS automagic Photo mode + HDR+
    04 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS Pro mode
    05 Parrot GCam Mod v.8.2.300
    06 Open Camera v1.49.1
    07 GCam LMC8.2 Mod by Helena R4 with Laptapper conf
    08 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS 108MP Pro mode
    09 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS 108MP

    The new 07 GCam LMC8.2 Mod by Helena R4 with Laptapper conf is actually a very Intriguing piece of a delicious Fresh Meat ... :)
    This is a GCam Mod with pretty new settings design! Also there are a lot of settings for fine tuning available.
    Definitely this camera will stay installed on my phone, I'll do a lot more tests and settings tuning.

    About ANX Camera pictures made on this comparison - 04 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS Pro mode pictures are NOT good because I was a bit in a hurry and all the pictures was made by hand NOT as usual on a tripod, because of that in the "Pro" mode shooting all settings was on "auto" ... :) :) :)
    Please ignore the 04 pictures and the problems there, in general I'm not using the "Pro" mode in this lammer way :) :) :)

    My personal opinion is that the best shots we still had from 02 BSG PV4 GCam MOD & GCam conf & GCam Lib BUT there are already MANY VERY GOOD Camera alternatives, good for each personal taste for ... Fresh Meat.
    :) :) :)


    As @dnana9 said some time ago we already had very Good working software for our Phone Camera hardware, now each one of us can experiment with the Config and the custom Libs in order to look for the best quality as It's personal preferences are.
    2
    So the steps to install are: Install APK, then where do I put the lib and config file?
    to load custom library: start camera go to settings / Custom library / Load.
    to load config File: start the camera and double click in the empty space next to the shutter button

    I have to say, I am enjoying the ANX camera 204 on LineageOS unofficial (September 2021 build). ANX 204 comes built in in the ROM, so you get almost stock quality on an AOSP ROM. Truly the best of both worlds.

    I know this is a GCam discussion thread, but I think it is important for everyone to know of this fresh meat, as our friend Lupo (lubo777) would call it.

    Posting some comparisons of BSG PV4 + Libgca 8.1 custom library. I know some people prefer various other cameras like 7.3, 7.4, 8.2, LMC etc, but to be honest - after hundreds of comparisons, what I realize is the RAW performance of all cameras are very close, it is just the processing and dynamic range that differs.
    PV4 is a really good version, so I will stick with it for comparisons.

    Use the attached pictures for referemce.
    Scenario 1 - Daytime HDR situation -
    ANX 204:
    Good dynamic range, more natural colours (3/5)
    GCam PV4:
    Great dynamic range, more pop because of the saturation and oversharpening in libgca8.1 (4/5).

    Scemario 2 - Daytime outdoors -
    ANX 204:
    Great dynamic range, more natural colours (4/5)
    PV4:
    Good dynamic range, oversaturated (which can be corrected by a different config) (3/5), but the pop is missing. (3/5)

    Scenario 3 - Nighttime, yellow lighting -
    ANX 204:
    Perfect white balance, but softer details. The background details are not clear. (3/5)
    PV4:
    Colours are a bit off, but the sharpening and better HDR of libgca works well here. Though it fakes detail with more sharpening at times (3.5/5)

    Scenario 4 - Nighttime, indoor lighting -
    ANX 204:
    Brighter, but softer (3.5/5)
    PV4:
    Very sharp and servicable output. Nighttime is where GCam shines, even without the night mode. (4/5)

    Result:
    ANX loses to PV4 by a point (Just my opinion), but it is much better than past ANX versions. So much so that I don't have a single reason to go back to stock MIUI again.
    And you can get slightly better or worse results on other GCam versions - but the fact is there is no perfect configuration for our phone yet.

    PS - All GCam pictures were shot with the Instantaneous HDR+ (Or HDRNet) on. You can get slightly better quality with HDR+ Enhanced or Night Sight on, but you lose instant images.

    PPS - I am testing out more libraries, so in the next week or so, I might have more comparisons to show.

    Thank you for the deep review and the delicious fresh meat you have found for us! 🐺🦊🐺

    Yesterday, after reading your post I flashed Lineage OS after testing for few days the latest AOSPExtended ROM with the custom ANX Camera included there. Before that I was using for a week the debloated MIUI 12.5.8 with the stock camera.

    I absolutely agree with you: the quality and the detail in all pictures shoot with the included in the Lineage OS ANX Camera version and config are as good as the photos from the stock MIUI Camera.

    The detail is at very good level, probably even better than the stock MIUI Camera!?! ... :)

    In Lineage OS the most important is that they use the MIUI vendor not the OSS vendor.
    As we know there in the MIUI vendor partition are placed the special configs and tweaks as a firmware code made especially for our camera hardware from Xiaomi.
    I'm using almost always the Pro mode, BUT here I have to say that the automatic shooting Photo mode have also very good quality results!
    For the first time in ANX in Pro mode we can shoot also 108MP shoots!

    The detail of the ANX Camera in Lineage OS is so good that it's almost the same as it's the detail from the best GCam mod and custom libs I have found: GCam BSG PV4 Mod & GCam conf & GCam Lib

    Yesterday I have made few camera comparison tests:

    01 BSG GCam Mod latest 8.1 version & GCam conf but NO Custom Lib
    02 BSG PV4 GCam MOD & GCam conf & GCam Lib
    03 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS automagic Photo mode + HDR+
    04 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS Pro mode
    05 Parrot GCam Mod v.8.2.300
    06 Open Camera v1.49.1
    07 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS 108MP Pro mode
    08 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS 108MP

    As you can see the best detail and colors we still have on 02 BSG PV4 GCam MOD & GCam conf & GCam Lib
    but the really good news are coming from ANX Camera both Pro and automagic Photo mode are shooting pictures with good detail! :) The colors are still not so vibrant (saturated) as I prefer, but after a short LightRoom fix they are ready to go also! :) :) :)

    I'm happy with the new ANX v204 MIUI vendor from Lineage OS because I'm not stuck anymore in the MIUI swamp because of the stock Camera quality

    Definitely the champion still is 02 BSG PV4 GCam MOD & GCam conf & GCam Lib but ANX is so close already - zoom and compare the pictures and you will see the differences.


    I've compared last @lubo777 (file name starting with pxl) recommendation to my config with gcam LMC8.2 Helena Release 4 (file name starting with lmc) at day and night light.

    The app functions of LMC8.2 Helena Release 4 are very comfortable, also top right in the app you have a red dot while saving picture and green if finished
    Screenshot_20211001-205132_CameraL.png



    I'm interested to know your opinion which pictures are better.
    Thanks in advance


    If you wanna try "my app" config it's attached.
    Here you'll get the apk

    It's not fully adjusted in my settings, its v1.1
    So everybody can optimize these settings further. I'm also on it....

    There is no support of wide and macro lens in this BSG camera lol, or am I missing something?
    The support of all 3 cameras in the latest 8.1 BSG version is brilliant, probable in a few days it will be available also for the newest BSG 8.3 version - actually I haven't tested it yet! :)
    P.S. During the last few days I was busy on a bicycle marathon but now I'm back and I'm ready to continue the tests of the best GCam mods and also the ANX Camera support for AOSP based ROMs.
    During the last 3 days I used almost only the BSG 8.1 version GCam mod with the config in the attachments below.
    I'm extremely happy with the BSG v8.1 results, below I'm posting few shots.

    Continued my GCam tests today and I think that I have found the BEST working GCam for our device - the best only from the few mods I have tested .. :) :) :)
    I have made a lot a lot of tests today and the best detail and quality I have received from the latest BSG GCam mod with BSG Gcam config for Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro from Alim.xml, link to the .xml config here: Alim.xml.
    I have tested and compared the same scene with the same focus point, the camera is placed on tripod.

    Below you can find some of my latest tests:
    On the name of the file I have written the name of the camera used and if it is with HDR+ switched on or off:

    IMG_20210814_194110785-BSG-Alim.jpg
    As you can see alone the best result on the image when zoomed as clean detail with no strange pixels and noise is on the pictures made with the latest BSG GCam mod with Alim config.
    This GCam mod supports perfectly the 3 back cameras and the front one with extremely detailed configuration options per each camera.
    All this extremely long list of configurations available per each of the 3 cameras you can find in Settings / Modules
    0.6 is the Ultra Wide camera
    1.0 is the main Wide camera
    2.0 is the Macro camera
    In front of the BSG GCam interface you can choose which one of the 3 cameras you use.
    Tomorrow I'll test different configs and GCam mods and I'll post more info if I find better Camera / Config for Redmi Note 10 Pro ...
    :) :) :)

    I FOUND IT! ... :cowboy:

    Yes, I found a GCam MOD which works pretty well with Redmi Note 10 Pro 108MP!
    Some times its even better than the shots from the stock MIUI camera (not in Pro mode) ... ... ...

    It's the BSG GCam MOD by TEAM which I found in the 4PDA forum post here shared from user JambazZi.
    Thank you
    !!!
    The config which I use with this GCam version is a modified version of the Final.PV4.Pro.xml config shared from the same user there.

    Here is my GCam MOD by TEAM config which I use for the last few days: RN10Pro-BSG-mod-from-TEAM-config-Lupo-20210829

    I have made hundred of photos comparing all the GCam mods listed below in different light conditions:


    1. MGC_8.1.101_v04j_MOD_PVx_sign, direct link to the apk here and .xml config
    2. MGC_8.1.101_A9_PV0n_libs_snap, link to the apk here - no .xml support but there are screenshots how to configure it
    3. Aspen 2 GCam 8.1.200, link to the apk here, link to the .xml config here
    4. BSG v8.1.101_A9_GV1n + Laptapper config v6.7
    5. BSG v8.1.101_A9_GV1n + my OLD BSG config

    6. BSG GCam MOD by TEAM with config: RN10Pro-BSG-by-TEAM-config-Lupo-20210829

    7. Origianl MIUI Xiaomi Camera v4.3.210331.1 available from here: Xiaomi Camera

    As you can see alone definitely the best results we have with the BSG GCam MOD by TEAM with config: RN10Pro-BSG-by-TEAM-config-Lupo-20210829
    :)

    Below I'm sharing few galleries with test pictures from all the cameras above.
    In order to find the differences between the different cameras you have to ZOOM them on a good BIG monitor.
    If you want to compare them on your phone, than you can use app like:
    Photo Compare

    Landscape on a sunny day

    The same landscape but NO Sun ...

    Close objects

    The same light conditions as above

    No Sun HDRnet/+ activated

    No Sun NO HDR

    Different objects not far away

    Close object

    Landscape no Sun

    Some macro shots taken with BSG by TEAM or the stock MIUI camera

    P.S. CAN somebody get me the original MIUI camera from the latest MIUI update for Redmi Note 10 Pro? I just need the content of this folder:
    /system/priv-app/MiuiCamera

    Has somebody found a working gcam for the pro version ?
    Urnyx05: GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v2.5.apk

    There are configs for our device also.

    Few more camera comparison tests:

    01 BSG GCam Mod latest 8.1 version & GCam conf but NO Custom Lib
    02 BSG PV4 GCam MOD & GCam conf & GCam Lib
    03 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS automagic Photo mode + HDR+
    04 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS Pro mode
    05 Parrot GCam Mod v.8.2.300
    06 Open Camera v1.49.1
    07 GCam LMC8.2 Mod by Helena R4 with Laptapper conf
    08 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS 108MP Pro mode
    09 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS 108MP

    The new 07 GCam LMC8.2 Mod by Helena R4 with Laptapper conf is actually a very Intriguing piece of a delicious Fresh Meat ... :)
    This is a GCam Mod with pretty new settings design! Also there are a lot of settings for fine tuning available.
    Definitely this camera will stay installed on my phone, I'll do a lot more tests and settings tuning.

    About ANX Camera pictures made on this comparison - 04 ANX v204 MIUI vendor Lineage OS Pro mode pictures are NOT good because I was a bit in a hurry and all the pictures was made by hand NOT as usual on a tripod, because of that in the "Pro" mode shooting all settings was on "auto" ... :) :) :)
    Please ignore the 04 pictures and the problems there, in general I'm not using the "Pro" mode in this lammer way :) :) :)

    My personal opinion is that the best shots we still had from 02 BSG PV4 GCam MOD & GCam conf & GCam Lib BUT there are already MANY VERY GOOD Camera alternatives, good for each personal taste for ... Fresh Meat.
    :) :) :)


    As @dnana9 said some time ago we already had very Good working software for our Phone Camera hardware, now each one of us can experiment with the Config and the custom Libs in order to look for the best quality as It's personal preferences are.
