You got the lenses right.
Macro is only a 2MP lens, and focal distance is like 4cm.
Can give interesting results when there's lot of light, but you're right that zoom x2 usually gives better results.
I'll try to post some XML here and there but cannot send all updates. Especially Ronit's are updated almost daily 😆
Only update since my last post is Ronit's.
I'm sharing the 2 versions.
NF:
Pros:​
+ Fast Processing​
Cons:​
- Can Be Noisy (Can Produce Better Details With Gd Lighting)​

NS:
Pros:​
+ Noise Reduction (Smoother Image Outputs In Low light)​
Cons:​
- Slow Processing​

Both with MIUI and OSS version.

Guys please, I don't know if this is the right place to post this.
My POCO X3 pro crashes often especially when I open the video for back camera, please anyone experiencing this? And any solution?

Thanks.

Indeed,your version's phottos look nice but,since it is a private version,BtB said that it is generally better to use public versions.That's why i finally chose to install MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV1n_MGC. :)
I'm new here, i have doubts
Do we have to depend on any modder of gcam or is there a universal arm64 gcam apk?

Do you know official sources or site!

I believe we only depends on xml config file shared by others. No!

Hi, I got noob question.
I tried installing gcam apks and got it running. I take picture and I click on view photo on the right. It loads the picture for half a saecond and disappears to black (it's like don't want to show me photo)

I don't know the cause, i tried different versions of gcams on this thread.

First of make sure you are loading .xml config, if still doesn't work then go to settings / advanced and enable "Use different gallery app" not sure how exactly it's called in english

I flashed my Poco X3 pro with Pixel Extended and i'm loving it so far, except gcam. Whenever I decided to record a video it becomes a blurry mess when saved to the library.
Does anyone know how to fix the issue? I think it's depending on the gcam itself, here's what I've been using: MGC-8.1.101-A9-PV3-MGC-libgcststartup-TN270721R
and here's the mess i have to deal with:

Have you tried to clear all data and cashe from settings/camera app ?
 
Go to settings , apps (or apps and notifications), see all apps and select camera. If you see clear data at the bottom, you press that and clear all data, or press storage and clear storage. Alternatively you can long press the camera app icon and press the info sign and that takes you to the camera app settings like above.

    On this GCam the Slowmo work for you? For me it wont
    Try "Settings/Stream Configs Slow-Mo" and enable CustomSession for 120 and 240 fps then set "CustomSession ID" to 33042

    There is a one stop place for all things Poco x3 pro camera related, the official telegram group:


    All kinds of XML config files and camera apps you'll ever want!!

    I have just got my Poco X3 pro and installed gcam ( the one in post #95 - thanks a lot to K3lcior for the link and your tests!). I will probably test the setup with the more natural colors you posted after too just to check it!

    Photo

    The main camera is quite good and Gcam is doing a great job, it's way better than stock - It's not miles ahead my Xiaomi A1 + Gcam, but it's definitely an improvment - (it's 10 times faster to process the photos however :D)

    Here is a shot with some Lightroom edits/PS

    morning-shot.jpg

    The Ultra wide however is worse than I expected on this phone, even if Gcam manage to improve it quite a bunch compared to Stock, it's still not really usable for a 1080p output. ( Still, for a phone I paid 190€ for the 256gb version, that's pretty decent - but with the poco you tend to forget that you have a budget phone in your hands!)

    Do you guy know how to edit these XML files (understand them at least) to tweak some values? I would like to try to make the colors closer to main cam.

    I have seen that you can add librairies too, however I don't really understand what they can be used for? What do they tweak?

    Is there any way to use manual white balance?


    Video

    The video seems much sharper than stock + higher bitrate/ better compression, but I can't get the image stabilization to work.

    Does any of you have Gcam video image stab working?

    Thanks!

    If you wanna try something new here is a Gcam based on 8.2.204, but some additional steps are needed to make it work.
    At first camera will freeze, to fix go to Settings / Setting up the mod FIX / and under FIX change Level Camera2 API to YUV level HAL3.
    Now make empty folder on Internal Storage called "ConfigsSettings folder 8.2 " and put the .xml config here, then load it.

    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

    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.

    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.

    link?! no news on the grapevine :p
    imho, the best cam is MGC by BSG
    Note: i've not tested that very latest version... In case of issue, previous version should work:
    And this XML seems to be good (see attached)
