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.
It still has that garbled mess

You are supposed to load .xml config for the gcam. And use 1080p/30fps or 4k/30fps.
For example here is one, as for gcam use PV3 or PV4 doesn't matter: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/16_Zm3N7MxzEF2jKGC3p7yfGRZekZ1RTF?usp=sharing
Then go to settings in Gcam -> Load config and point to the .xml
Ok so i loaded sone xmls and videos are working great! But whenever I tried to see a photo after having taken it while locked the app crashed. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Big noticeable quality difference compares to stock cam. Thanks!

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!

I have just tried the gcam K3lcior posted on post #131 and it's really nice too.

Photos:

Better than the other one for portrait, especially in low light (the other one was too saturated, destroying skin colors).

I am keeping both versions!

Video:

Stabilization works great, video quality is miles ahead stock cam.

cons: it really lacks manual settings for video - Any app to recommand featuring manual settings and good EIS + OIS support?

I still can't decide which i like better, "artistic" outcome of 7.1.5 or natural colors with TN. Both seem to have very good detail & sharpness. It's a toss up. For now i have 7.1.5 installed.. i can't wait for first snow to see difference between the 2.
Yep, they both have their strenght to be honest, that's why I am keeping both and will use them according to the need of the moment.

I already had 2 Gcams on my A1, so I am used to juggling between the apps depending on the situation!

    Some more samples for this Gcam & config https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/16_Zm3N7MxzEF2jKGC3p7yfGRZekZ1RTF


    Also short 4k 30fps video recording test

    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

    Any gcam that has working video image stabilization? I'm using 8.1.101 and there is virtually no difference using standard or normal image stabilization option.

    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.
    7
    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

    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)
