gcam version: GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v2.2-fix.apk
Cons:
0,6x is Macro sensor and
, 2x is actually UltraWide
No UltraWide/Macro Video
No 64M mode
No Bulb Flash in photo mode
Macro is better in stock


Pros
Sharper in low light than stock
UltraWide NightSight works, stock nightmode only in main camera
Less chromatic aberration
Focus tracking in photo mode (need testing)

A quick question here.
Gcam must be adapted for each device, right?
What's the point of using gcam if there's not a device-specific gcam for us yet? At least afaik

btw for those interested, I managed to adapt a config from K30 in Wichaya's cam (most work is camera IDs, all quality settings and such are my preference, but didn't go into the advanced ones, for AWB I used the "most similar" camera setting, which is the poco x2 one) not sure if the best or not, feel free to edit the config, and share the config with us if you are good with photo settings :D)

Everything I tested (macro, 0.6) is working (mostly similar to what bacitoto posted, except cameras have the right "name"), except:

1- Bokeh effect in portrait mode (idk if that gcam can support it, no slider i think)
2- Zoom bug in front-camera VIDEO recording (there's a workaround, just zoom upto 1.01 and it works fine, 1.00/default zoom looks like 500.00 zoom :S).
3- Macro/0.6 crash on video, but I think stock camera doesn't support that aswell?
4-other things i'm not even aware they exist? :p

i'm not an expert, but works :)

for me, gcam is years away versus stock camera, at least when taking photos at my floor :S (it has wooden details and such)

PS: You might want to use 4:3 instead of 16:9, 16:9 loses too many MPs

added zip

I've swapped to arnova gcam using pachenko's config (htcmania) tho, he knows better about libpatcher configs, and in arnova there's no front zoom bug (it has a workaround here anyways, so experience is similar)
