Hi,
I'm on ArrowOS 11, what camera do you suggest me to install (I also have Magisk)? Something that is stable and has all features working (expect for things like 64M that I know it cannot work on a custom ROM like ArrowOS).
I'm using MTSL v5 at moment, but I cannot see the wide angle option (1.2x)
Thanks

Anx camera is fully functional, install it, plus flash miui core and 48MP fix. I believe 64MP also works. That's what I'm using.

I'm sorry, where did you download it? From the official website our device is not officially supported!
https://camera.aeonax.com/ From here. Yeah, I know it isn't listed, but I installed it anyway and it works. The only thing that I've found to sometimes not work is taking zoomed in pictures in AI mode sometimes doesn't save the pic properly, so for that I just disable AI or switch to pro. All cameras can be accessed and work flawlessly.

Could you please help me in setting up MTSl ?
I installed the snap version, deleted the configsettings 8.3 folder, did a reset in cam app and loaded the 2DesArt_Ultimate xml. but somehow the app keeps force closing.

Here we go again with another recomendation: the latest Nikita's NGcam. Now with the libpatcher included, so it's a full version with everything. Quality of pictures is very good, video in FHD & 4K (30 Fr) is excellent and stable, slow motion works OK, wide video doesn't work and to use front video you have to uncheck the EIS button. Try this xml (folder GCam/Configs8) and maybe later there'll be more xmls with improvements.


UPDATE: New version of the mod, so here it is with the xmls. Enjoy!.
Hi folks,

this post (including some answers) is the latest one I found which is referring to Nikita's NGCam 8.2.

Nowadays, the current version 1.7 instead of 1.5 (like it was in the original post).
Have anybody tested of the mentioned drawbacks are solved in v. 1.7?

BTW, I'm currently still using NGCam 7.4 v.2.0. Is there any way to install both NGCams (7.4 + 8.2) in parallel?
Usually, 8.2 is handled as an update of 7.4 which makes it impossible to have both installed at the same time on the same device.

You can rename the Gcam APK:

Sorry, but I think that the fix BSG made for the Xiaomi family to fix video and slow motion is posterior to the build of this premium mod and yes, it's one of the greatest gcam mods ever made and the only one that has ram patcher and libpatcher so you can use both to get great results.
Right now, my personal choice and the one that I'm using is the PV4 mod with the xml magnificent_PV4.xml. Perfect pictures & great video and slow motion. I recommend it (with the lib Google 8.1.200.so, the same as in the premium mod). Also I recommend for the premium mod the latest xml perfectionBSG.xml.
can share xml magnificent_pv4.xml.. and perfectionbsg?

Has anyone experienced crashes with any GCAM app? I am on crDrioid 8.5 and I tried to install MTLS, and some other marked as stable on celsoazevedo.com but none worked properly they crash the moment I try to take a picture, checked the logs and the only things related to the crash I found was a SQLite error (Code 14 SQLITE_CANTOPEN), and something related to google certificate

    I'm on crdroid 8.6 and mtslcam works great except ultra wide keeps crashing the app. Is there a way to fix this?

    Hi All, wanted to share my findings with the community. These are purely my personal preferences and opinions. I also have an iPhone XR and use that as a baseline.

    First I am mainly interested in skin tones, I personally feel we are all very attuned to skin tones and that's the best way to get a feel for a camera's quality.

    For things like plants, flowers, landscapes, buildings and objects sometimes it becomes very difficult to tell even poor and good cameras apart.

    So lets begin. All this is on MIUI stock 12.0.3 ROM. I will focus on the main and selfie camera. Haven't tested video or the wide lens.

    The Stock Camera
    The stock camera is decent but has a reddish brownish skin tone. On zoom in many situations you will see smudging. Its also not sharp. The selfie camera suffers from the same problems only more accentuated. Very smudgy, too much contrast, reddish brownish tone and overall lack of clarity and detail. In low light the problems become more accentuated.

    Nikita 7.4 2.0 with Vanpoko's config V3
    Thanks to vanpoko for coming out with various configs for this. This camera is really extraordinary sharp on objects and color is also decent for objects. However its way too sharp for human subjects and gives an unnatural look. Skins tone also look unnatural. The selfie camera is oversharpened and unnatural - its unusable. The sharpening is extreme and skin tones just look off.

    The next 2 are from the Poco X3 camera thread on 4pda. There are more than 650 pages on that thread and I used Google translate to read some of them. There are a lot of configs, versions, differing opinions, samples to wade through.


    BSG 8.1 GVq
    This one is quite good out of the box. If you have a pet you will get fantastic pictures out of the box with BSG with proper color, detail, sharpness and proper definition on the eyes. Its way way better than stock and in some cases beats my iPhone XR for pets. The colors are on point though some may find it a bit faded. Skin tones are well represented in both good light and low light situations. There is details and none of the smudging you see on the stock. The selfie camera is also good for skin tones, again some may find this slightly washed out but the details are well captured. A simply brightening and contrast in the default image editor will dramatically improve the image for most tastes.

    This camera is extremely good for pets. This is on out of the box config. For main lens in the settings I used Pixel4 for both HDR+ and AWB correction. These settings are in settings -> additional modules settings -> settings back lens. For selfie camera I found Samsung T2 AWB gave the best colors. This is in settings -> additional modules settings -> settings front lens -> awb correction. For the custom library I used Lib r1_01_Final - the skin tone colors are slightly better here than the default Google lib. There are many other BSG versions on the 4pda thread but I found the GVq versions shared there worked well. Its available on celsoazevedo Gcam site. Its the 8.1.101_A9_GVq one.


    Aspen 8.1.200 and 8.1.011.194
    There is not much discussion on this Gcam mod on XDA or on celsoazevedo. Both along with BSG are highly rated on the 4pda thread. I found 8.1.200 nearly as good as BSG, just a slightly different color tone. Its also nearly as sharp as BSG. For the Selfie camera, some may find this better than BSG. Unfortunately the apks and configs are only available in the 4pda thread. The best library I found for color accuracy was 1.8re which many on the thread recommend. Like BSG the Aspen 1.8.200 is much better for skin tones, pets and many other things than the stock cameras.

    The 8.1.011.194 version is extremely similar to the 8.1.200 version. Its slightly less sharp I found for pets and skin tones, and the selfie is just slightly, very slightly more natural looking. Again this is with lib1.8re. The other popular lib is 1.9final and I found 1.8re is generally better for skin tones on the front camera. The main camera is quite similar. On Aspen default AWB on gives a cooler more 'pastely' color tone but you can put it off to get a slightly warmer more accurate tone closer to BSG.

    The 4pda thread is very confusing but for Aspen the bulk of the posts, configs and apks is shared by user Paradisoko. There are also a lot of useful posts and real world comparisons by both paradisoko and hulksvs on Aspen 8.1 and BSG. Thanks to both of these users and the 4pda community for providing a mod that improves the Poco default camera. One thing to note is Aspen does not support the wide camera while BSG does. I haven't tested much video but BSG records 1080p stabilized.

    I think most users will find BSG 8.1 a good alternative to the stock cam. It works well out of the box for the X3 and I personally think colors are extremely accurate and skin tone and details is perhaps as good as the camera hardware allows. Aspen 8.1.200 is also worth trying, its very good, and you can install and use both together. Hope this was useful to users here.

    OK, here goes what technically is the masterpiece of all GCams, the latest BSG's private version. First, if you have installed the premium MOD and you want to try this one, you don't need to uninstall anything; both are compatible and you can have the two BSGs installed. In this mod everything that I have tested works OK, even slow motion in HD. About the xmls, they can be loaded from any folder, although the apk uses its custom folder inside Downloads, so when it's created better move all the xmls inside that folder.

    Download the apk from here:


    UPDATE: added the zip BSG_ONE_PV4.zip. It contains the main xml and the lib Google 8.1.200.so. All the xmls work with both the default google lib and the modified, so you can try both of them or stay with the default; it's very easy to change libs: just go to the configuration and in the custom libray section you can load, change, restore default, etc libraries. I personally like more the modified one, I find better light and colors in the Google 8.1.200 lib.

    NOTE: I've reuploaded BSG_ONE_PV4.zip as there was a problem with EIS that now it's solved and video stabilization works ok in the reworked BSG_ONE_PV4.xml.

    UPDATE: Added 2 new xmls for you to experience: kalamazoo_PV4.xml & rainmaker_PV4.xml.

    Hi everyone. I'm using the new Poco X3 since yesterday and it's a blast. Do you know of any GCam port available for this phone?
    10
    Here goes for photography enthusiasts and gcammaniacs one of the coolest, most complete, customized and best GCam mods out there so far, the latest Pitbull's P-Z-D GCam 8.2.204 mod. If you get a good configuration you can get amazing photos. The options are almost endless to configure. Thanks to the new HDR+ of the Pixel 6, to a great noise model specially made for the Poco X3, to full sabre merging, the total control that is achieved over light, shadows, color, contrast, etc. you can get great photos in almost any light or shadow setting. And the video is also very good and stable and slow motion works ok. One of the pluses is that you have the option to use LDR. The mod uses this cool new layout with the AUX buttons displayed different and 2 special buttons for the AWB and the libpatcher. Enjoy!.

    Download the apk from here:



    NOTE: maybe you'll have to give permissions to manage files to the apk in order to load the xml. This goes in a special folder called ConfigSettings8.2, so you can save a random xml and the folder will be created and after move the shared one and load it.

    Base XML Credits: 2DesArt Team

    This are my final and definitive xmls for this mod. I wasn't satisfied with the results from the one already posted so I made it from scratch with no base or whatever. Now you'll get really cool photos! Don't miss it !!!
