have you used night sight?
I'm using the Parrot version of 20/2/2020 from 22/2/2020 until today with all uses, camera, video, night sight, etc. but it needs to install the nokia7plus.xml file as it describes.
https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/f/configs-parrot-03/
But need to create the folder /configsCamera7/ by making a save if a settings only at the settings menu of the app.
After that we can find the folder in the files menu if the phone at copy/paste the Nokia7plus.xml file.
This is the version:
https://f.celsoazevedo.com/file/cfiles/gcm1/MGC_7.3.018_Parrot043-v1.apk
It still works fine!

I've just retried parrot043 version with the nokia7plus.xml config after a factory reset, and a few reboots/cache resets.
I have actually been able to shoot pictures now on my n7p, but damn - this is a fragile app on this device ;)

Google Camera v7.3.020 port V1 by Parrot043

Changelog:

After a month of work on the modification, I and the testers are ready to release it. A lot of work has been done, in particular towards Oc Android 10. A lot of bugs have been fixed, as well as Auto White Balance buttons and astrophotographs have been added to the application shutter, for that we can express a huge thank you to B-S-G. Also, thank you to Urnyx05 for fixing the departure with the Magisk Eszdman module at 48MP (12 is used anyway).

• Celsoazevedo moderators for their help and source code for the modification, because they made a significant contribution to the modification.

• Thank you very much for the tester for checking the application for finding bugs.

At last, this version seems to be working fine! Thx for spotting it!

All previous versions (from Parrot043 or others) were easy to make fail: after tapping repeatably the shutter button, it would stop taking any shot unless I reboot my phone.

This new version behaves differently: when tapping repeatably the shutter button, the button stays gray after a while, until enough of the in-process photos get done and the pipeline gets freed enough. Then the button gets un-grayed and one can resume taking photos.
I loaded the Nokia 7.1 xml settings then I disabled the Disable Hexagon DSP as advised on the "Nokia 7 plus google camera HDR+ ZSL" thread.

EDIT: after testing some more, I was unfortunately able to reproduce the issue of the GCam app not saving pictures anymore. Yet it feels more robust; maybe if not taping crazily on the shutter button, it will behave well enough...

Have you turned "Disable Hexagon DSP" on in Experimental Settings in Advanced Settings? It helps a lot with making sure the app doesn't stop saving photos, as far as I've seen.

Thx, but yes (last line of the 2nd paragraph in the message you answered) ;)
As said, I was testing overwhelming the app, trying to take shots 10 times per second. It felt more robust, but still broke in the end. I'll see whether a more normal use will be fine.

Ah, I didn't read that. Oops.

Sure. I'll update after 2 days.
Btw, HDR processing is also faster inthis version.
I did not tweak any settings.
Just installed the apk and started shooting.

Edit : You need to disable Hexagon DSP. my previous settings were automatically imported. So i didn't need to tweak any.

It's working ( as in, not crashing and saving photos ) but the photos taken from this version in various scenarios are not good. Like 5/10.
Even after tweaking settings, the photos are washed out in very bright or very deam conditions. Normal light photos aren't very good at all. Like 6/10
So, install on your choice

    The original thread of the first posts and discussions here.

    Hello! With the plethora of GCam ports out there (thank you, devs), my very objective is to make all necessary features work on our phone, all the while making things simple and clean possible. In contrast with the existing ports that have a lot of settings to tinker, I am aiming for a no-config port that simply works well. Please note that I am not a developer per se; you see, this was just a hobby that I am doing on my spare time and it occurred to me one day that I want to share my efforts to everyone else.

    This port is designed and is working well on my Nokia 7 Plus (TA-1046) running Android 9.0 Pie. For the most part, this needs no extra config after installation. I have, however, provided several extra settings that you may play around to your desire.
    If it works on your non-Nokia 7 Plus device, that's great! If not, please do not request fixes and/or features and instead head over to this website and look for one that works well on yours. ALSO, if you are into a lot of mod settings, this may not be the port for you. Again, check the link for the other ports.

    WHAT'S WORKING
    • All photo (HDR+, Portrait mode, Panorama, Photo Sphere) and video things
    • Night sight
    • Tracking autofocus
    • Motion photos
    • Photobooth
    • Lens Blur
    • Slow motion
    • Face warping for front camera (can be disabled in later versions)
    • Playground (AR stickers): download here
    • Launching from lockscreen

    GCam_6.2.030_N7P_test1.3 (final) (Original post)
    Changelog:
    - Toggle to directly save Portrait shots to /DCIM/Camera (thanks san1ty): a lot of people wanted this feature, so here it is. But be warned: I haven't done any extensive tests to verify if the portrait bug from previous versions still occur here; so far it's okay. Use at your own risk.
    - Toggle to use custom lib (from @cstark27): from the custom libs I've tried, Sav ZA v3 is so far the best in my opinion. It significantly reduces black crush while keeping noise reduction etc the same as stock lib. However, this also reduces overall contrast and/or saturation. It's your choice.
    - Enabled DCI-P3 color space: I honestly don't know what this does, but I hope enabling it brings some sort of improvement.
    - Fixed washed-out RAW photos (thanks for the tips @Urnyx05): RAW (.dng) photos now won't have washed out colors straight out of the camera.

    Again, If the app is lagging or acting weird, just clear app data and follow the installation instructions described in the previous versions.

    GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test2.6a (Original post)

    F.A.Q.
    What are the GCam settings for?
    These are extra features on top of the original Google Camera app for Pixel devices that give more options for the user to play around. Later versions have a "Gcam settings info" page under "About", where each additional setting is briefly described.

    What are the best settings?
    I made this port such that no special configs and adjustments are needed for the most part. You can change toggles like Location if you want, of course. Furthermore, I have included the GCam settings for additional settings in case anyone wants to do some extra modifications.

    Why is it that when I zoom in completely, the display stops midway but the final photo is in fact zoomed?
    Why is it that when I double-tap-to-zoom, the final photo seems a bit shifted compared to what is displayed?
    I have answered it here.

    Why is the max megapixels for front camera only 4MP while the stock camera can go up to 16MP?
    I honestly don't know why, but I'm certain that only the Nokia Camera can tap into the full potential of the sensor. Even 3rd party hardware analyzer apps would always declare 4MP. But it produces some seriously good photos for a 4MP size, don't you think?

    Why won't it install in my device?
    This could be for a couple of reasons: (1) this was developed for Android 9.0 Pie, so no assurance that it will run on lower versions; (2) there could be conflict with an existing GCam app so in that case, uninstall that first before installing this. If both weren't the case, a reboot might help. Or in worst cases, a hard reset may be done.

    I WOULD LIKE TO THANK the awesome devs for the wonderful GCam ports. Of course special thanks to @Arnova8G2, @cstark27, @S4turno, @Tolyan009, B-S-G, and everyone at the "Nokia 7 plus google camera HDR+ ZSL" XDA thread and other social media platform. Best!

    Hi it's been a while. I had to set aside this coding stuff since I had to prioritize my Master's thesis these past weeks.

    GCam_6.2.030_N7P_test1.3
    Changelog:
    - Toggle to directly save Portrait shots to /DCIM/Camera (thanks san1ty): a lot of people wanted this feature, so here it is. But be warned: I haven't done any extensive tests to verify if the portrait bug from previous versions still occur here; so far it's okay. Use at your own risk.
    - Toggle to use custom lib (from @cstark27): from the custom libs I've tried, Sav ZA v3 is so far the best in my opinion.

    - Fixed washed-out RAW photos (thanks for the tips @Urnyx05): RAW (.dng) photos now won't have washed out colors straight out of the camera.

    And oh, before I forget:
    Q: Where's Google Camera v6.3?
    A: As of this writing, there had been no (very) stable public version yet, so I won't risk it. Plus other than being an unofficial version, the only significant change is Night Sight in place of Panorama in the viewfinder; nothing else.

    Again, If the app is lagging or acting weird, just clear app data and follow the installation instructions described in the previous versions.

    GCam_6.2.030_N7P_test1.3

    P.S. This will be the last version that I'll be sharing because I don't have my device anymore. Anyway, I'd like to thank everyone for all the help and support that made these ports possible :)

    GCam_6.2.024_N7P_test1
    This is my first release of Google Camera v6.2.024 that I optimized for Nokia 7 Plus. Everything in v6.1 still works including photo stuff, video stuff, slow motion, photobooth, lens blur, etc. with the following notable changes.

    Changelog vs v6.1 ... test6a:
    - Overall performance improvements
    - Added "About" page
    ---> added "GCam settings descriptions" to serve as a quick guide for the different GCam settings options in this port.
    - Under "GCam settings":
    ---> minor rearrangements
    ---> added toggle for Dark theme
    ---> "Use custom lib" is Xlib v3: until more libs are ported with 6.2 compatibility, this is the viable option we have for now.
    ---> "Saturation" has been simplified to three (3) options: Low, Medium, and High
    ---> Removed the following options:
    -------> "Save portraits to DCIM/Camera/": due to stability concerns
    -------> "HDR+ Enhanced frames": frame number optimizations are already applied under the hood
    -------> "Maximum brightness"

    NOTE: Uninstall any previous or related versions first before installing this.

    Known issues:

    - Tap-to-focus in video mode breaks autofocus; workaround is switching to other modes and back.
    - Manual white balance in camera mode doesn't work, but it works in other modes, typically with tap-to-focus.
    - Some reports mention lagging of Google Photos. Clearing Photos app cache would do the trick.

    This is more of a test version for the purpose of getting feedback. I added selections for camera model and denoise multiplier for front and rear cameras. I would really appreciate it if you share your recommended camera model and denoise setting combinations here with photo comparisons/samples. Out-of-the box the defaults are set to Pixel 3 XL model for both cameras, and 100% and 400% denoise for rear and front cameras, respectively (which is, in fact, the default settings of the previous test1).
    Just to share my initial trials this evening, the Pixel 2 XL model was the best for my taste. That's just me, and again, I'd appreciate if you share your settings here with photo samples.

    GCam_6.2.024_N7P_test1.2
    Changelog vs test1.1:
    - Added front and rear camera model selections.*
    - Added front and rear denoise multiplier selections.
    *only Pixel 3 XL model supports Pixel 3 AWB.

    NOTE: Fresh install or clear data after installation is highly recommended.

    Known issues:

    - Tap-to-focus in video mode breaks autofocus; switch modes/cameras to get it working again.
    - Manual white balance in camera mode doesn't work, but it works in other modes, typically with tap-to-focus.
    - If Google Photos app lags, try clearing the app cache.


    Download:
    GCam_6.2.024_N7P_test1.2

    P.S. I'll be taking a break from coding for a while. I have to send my device to the service center since its loosened charging port is getting worse. I've no idea when the device will return, but in the meantime your feedback and photos are very much appreciated. Thanks!

    The 'a' means this is a minor update. And same as before, I have both the lib and no-lib variants.

    GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test2.4a
    Changes vs. test2.4 :
    - Fixed shortcut crashes when Lens Blur Mode is enabled: you know what that means? Yes, Lens Blur Mode is now permanently enabled (see attached screenshot 1); that also means the toggle to turn it on/off in GCam settings is removed. Many thanks to @Arnova8G2 for the fix.
    - Added launcher shortcut for Photobooth: this only appears in a some 3rd party launchers like Nova + Sesame (see attached screenshot 2) and Microsoft launcher because the stock launcher (and most other launchers) can only show up to 4 shortcuts max. (I tried adding a 6th, but it won't show up. Oh well, I guess 5 is enough haha)

    Again, if you have any trouble with the app acting a bit funny, do the following: force close; clear data; clean install; reboot device.

    Known issues:

    - Tap-to-focus in video mode breaks autofocus; workaround is switching to other modes and back.
    - Manual white balance in camera mode doesn't work, but it works in other modes; in Portrait Mode and on the front camera, it works with tap-to-focus.
    - 60 FPS video doesn't work and only produces 30 FPS. I'm also not sure if our phone is even capable of recording 60 FPS in the first place.
    - Some reports mention lagging of Google Photos. In my case, clearing Photos app cache did the trick, and so far it's working fine.
