Nice, I need to visit Poland one day, it looks gorgeous!

And crazy it's straight out of camera jpgs, today the sky was a bit hazy here, so not the best day to try the colors rendering of the sky.
But I hope I can get nice colors like on your pics!

Hello!

Image stabilization works for the wide angle lens too I think, however the wide angle doesn't have optical image stabilization (OIS), so you cannot expect Go Pro level of stabilization ^^.
Only EIS is working, eliminating some of the jittering.
You can smooth it further in post porcessing, but don't expect running or even walking normally and getting stable footage.

On flat ground, you can practice your walking technique and try to keep the phone as stable as possible and you might get a relatively stable result with a bit of practice!

Oh yes, I know. PX3P has EIS.

Stock MIUI camera has EIS for Wide Angle. So I think it is possible to activate it in Gcam too. But how?
This is the ideia..

I'm TV Camera News in Sao Paulo / Brazil. Practice is being normal for me in the last 28 years!
Thank you! Let's see if there is any solution for GCAM EIS in Wide Angle

Wow, lots of experience then :D

For the wide angle EIS, I would say it's enabled on Gcam too, it's just doing a slightly less good job with EIS than the stock app.
I don't think it's disabled, footage would be much much more shacky.

Yes, thanks, it's the one I downloaded too!

Just I think mine makes more yellowish pictures by default, but we have lots of beige/light browns tones here (I am in Malta), and they seem pretty hard to handle for this config, making them a very saturated yellowish mess in some cases.

I would need to travel to find more colorful buildings and landscape to practice on!

Perhaps it is as you write. My photos were taken in Wrocław, Poland. The city is quite large, densely built-up. :)

    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.

    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!

    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)
