Check here and configs is great for Poco X3 Pro
Hi

What config file do you recommend for our device (in the list, I don't see the poco x3 pro)?
Now, I am using the MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV1x_ENG.apk from https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-bsg/f/dl61/

Thanks

Solid Config / Gcam, it's nice because it shoots very quick. (ZSL)

I'm on ArrowOS 12 but it was same with other ROM: if I take pictures, no matter what camera is installed and used I only get pictures with a resolution of 12MP. Doesn't have X3 Pro much higher photo resolution ? Do I have an issue with the camera hardware ?

Thanks & regards

camera in Poco X3 Pro is a 48MP hardware. Software is doing 4:1 pixel binning which results in 12MP pictures.
Anyway it would be nice to have a 48MP mode what I didn't found until now.
The X3 Pro built-in main sensor f/1.79 IMX582 Exmor RS IMHO is not good enough for more then 12MP binned doing a satisfying job in good light conditions. In low light even the binning trick has limits and results are clearly below the top class of sensors. So 48MP might sound interesting but I have no motivation to get inflated file size combined with poor washed pixel quality. For this device EIS Video and good light pics give some satisfaction, in some case HDR might allow decent results, for more I would use other devices with clearly better sensor (including DSLR).

Ok found the solution: camera in Poco X3 Pro is a 48MP hardware. Software is doing 4:1 pixel binning which results in 12MP pictures.
Actually it is the other way around. Hardware is 12MPix, where each pixel is divided into 4 subareas. Hardware does pixel binning of subareas, which is a normal way of operating. This can be changed for HDR, where subareas can get different exposure time. Or can be used to artificially increase resolution but result is more or less similar to common upsampling.

IMO the real resolution is limited by lenses, not sensor. Probably you can get some better results for middle area, which could be interesting for digital zoom. Anyway, don't expect big results form small sensor ;)

See some analisys here.

I've tested Arnova, BSG, Greatness, Nikita & even Pitbull GCam versions, they either crashed on some functionality or didn't produce a good enough picture.

What you posted is sofa king perfect, even slow-mo works!

Many thanks, God bless, merry Christmas & happy 2022!

Is there any GCam+XML-Config with superior Video EIS?
I tried MGC with XML Ronit/MK/Jole but no luck, way less good then the stock or crDroid/ANX Cam.

    @pootie_tang @djsolidsnake86 @k3lcior have anyone of you guys compared these 2 versions? (or anyone else). Opinions?
    the one you posted also crashed on me severally times, so yes, Oversharp is the best for now.

    although not perfect (ex slow-mo is dark), but works great in usual scenarios without crashing.

    It would be really awesome if @DJPRMF could update the first post with more information and some more links.
    You have time for that?
    Or want me to create an Post you could Quote?

    In the Telegram Poco X3 Photography group
    a) member Park Q claims Marco's 7.3_GCam_MJL_v4.3_Minilux.apk (2020-08-31, oneplus 6/6t) is optimized for 582 and 586 sensor. He has also posted two configuration XML files (Flat & Zoom)
    b) member Team XKlaus claims MGC_8.1.101_A9 (BSG, 2021-03/04) allows 4k @ 60fps

    Searching for "IMX582 celsoazevedo" I found the following:
    UltraCVM_v4.apk (UltraM8, 2020-05-10, configs)
    UltraCam_3.2.3.apk (UltraM8, 2020-02-19, configs)
    UltraM8 bases off Urnyx05 or Arnova8G2 versions with additions and tunings ... with main focus on the IMX586 sensor (primary device Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro).

    In Config Files for burial's GCam 7.2.x there is Xiaomi Mi A3 » mi-a3-x.j.b.-ver.1.xml which contains the string: Main Sensor: IMX582 (same as IMX586 without 4K and Stab
    (Xiaomi Mi A3 has Sony IMX586 Exmor RS)

    I need to look into this but share so we may find some basic optimization based on existing IMX582(586) configs what GCams might be good.

    Just to clarify my focus:
    a) good natural daylight main cam pictures (no oversharpening, no oversaturation, etc.)
    b) 1080p 24fps EIS ExtraSmooth (Steady) Videos (no refocus, no pumping, no artefacts) possibly with UltraWide for less crop
    c) Special Features like 1) Time Lapse 2) Slow motion 3) Night etc.
    d) 4k 24fps EIS as good as possible like 1080p

    I made a GSheet comparison: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...kpsmnix1jUWCr2SMdPl_wprc8/edit#gid=1775206814

    Hi,

    For those with the POCO X3 Pro, what is the best GCam that is currently available to use - most stable, with better quality, etc....
    I have tested some GCams from X3 NFC, but is a shot in the dark - some work, but i think is room to improve in the quality (could be some settings/configs too).

    Maybe someone here found a specific one that works better :)

    Updated and new XMLs, all credits to their authors
    Advice from Telegram:

    Ronit for accurate colors on all lens + details (that's R6.2)
    Jole for punch colors on wide and macro
    Melon for visual color orgasm on main cam


    Melon and Jole by same author.

    More xmls are shared on Telegram.

    I'm trying this:

    And it is working properly, thanks @ChriMo

    New BSG update with manual focus, quite nice!!

    2 good XMLs attached as well, test and see which one you prefer
    R4 by @myselflatu
    Jole V2 by user *edm
    (both from Telegram group)

    Edit: Previous Jole 1.4 would still work if you don't like v2 which is a brand new one.
