I got another gcam 7 which is working great in mi max.
I tested/used it in android q only till now. So i don't know about android pie.

Mostly everything is working except slow-motion, astrophotography (i think astrophotography is a long shot for our device to work on)

Hey, Everyone
Recently I was searching for a Google Camera Mod, and I have tried a few. But when some lacked quality others lacked new features, advance settings. And somehow I came across this Google Camera.. ( It's almost stable and it works great )


And all the credit goes to the developer of this mod.
I'm just sharing their app to you guys


Slow motion doesn't work ??
HDR,Night sight,time lapse all works

The HDR works even better

Could you share any of your settings please..


I didn't change too much settings..

I increased HDR strength, saturation,
and enabled raw, night sight suggestion, lens clean suggestion.
And some minor changes. It's still not perfectly stable.
But I have a note 5 pro and this gcam works perfectly and the pictures are incredible

Have you tried to use Google camera under Android 10.
I'm running Miui 11 on my MiMax 3 with Android 10, but I'm unable to enable camera2 api.

Any help?

1, Unlock your bootloader
2, Root your phone
3, Install camera2api
That's it.

I'm sure someone must have made a video on this topic.search on YouTube.

Oh and my device is mi max 1 so the company didn't release miui11 for this device. So i cant test it by my self

Of course I did the points 1 and 2 already.
In Android 9 I just had to flash a zip to enable camera2 api. But in Android 10 it's not working.

What do you mean with install camera2 api. In my understanding it is implemented in Android and has to be enabled in the build.prop. I did it with the flashing.

Still noone with experience in Android 10?

If the method with magisk is not working... Add the camera 2 api command to your build.Prop manually.
I did the same this with my MiA2 running stock os.
Now it works amazing

Also if your gcam is force closing check if it's the issue of the apk or cam2api via Manuel camera compatibility.

If that didn't help
Check if you have this line in your build prop
persist.camera.HAL3.enabled=0
If you do change the "=0" to "=1"
persist.camera.HAL3.enabled=1

Activate Camera2API on Mi MAX 3 with Android 10 Q and MIUI 11?

I tried this as well.
Which lines did you add, or which lines did you alter?

I think the problem is Android 10, in the previous version it was no problem.

Did you successfully activate Camera2API on Mi MAX 3 with Android 10 Q and MIUI 11?:confused:

Also keep waiting somehow because even used a module for Magisk 20.2 channel Canary but even this version still works on Android 10 Q.:rolleyes:

As I wrote, I tried that solution, but to no avail.
There must be another way for Android 10.

BEST GCAMv7 FOR MI MAX

I tried all the suggested version none of them were stable. Some crashed, some rebooted the device, some had issues with video and almost every gcamv7 was not even opening. I was using DMGC gcam on my MiA2. I randomly tested it on my Helium and it worked flawlessly ! Even astrophotography is working ! It's not that great but it works ! Some ISO issue with video but when you keep the frame rate to auto. It fixes. I even supported the developer for such a masterpiece I am so pleased ! Thanks Dmitry Garvilo aka the_dise.
Just download it!
DMGC_7.3.020_ver.4.1.apk
tested on PixelExperiencePlus 9.0 20200115

    I'm currently using latest gcam 7.3 from urnyx05.... It's working smoothly for me I can take more than 2 photo and the cam won't force close astrophotography works.. it depends on the rom...
    The 7.3 by urnyx05 worked great in Havoc OS...
    but it's lagging, force closing in Lineage 17
