Hey, guys!

Try Nikita Developer GCam with my xml settings for POCO F3.

I BELIEVE YOU WILL NOT REPENT.

After several experiments with different gcam, I came to a conclusion.

GCam contains:
Pixel Binning (48mp to 12mp)
4k 60fps (with stabilization)
Redesigned Lib Patcher for Poco F3
Very detailed and rich in color photos.

The three lenses of the Poco F3 are working correctly

Night Mode works great
Portrait
slow motion

Moving photos options
Reduce Points
Focus Tracking

What to do:
install gcam
{You can install any gcam apk as all versions are the same just change the name (I used the first apk)}

Please comment what you think about this gcam.
Have fun!

Honestly I believe on older phones like redmi note 5 Ai and redmi note 7 gcam used to make a difference but now new phones have enough processing power and hardware that stock pics turn out better then Gcam.

Same is the case here to my eyes stock pic looks equally sharp with more pleasing natural colors then the yellowish image from gcam.

It depends of what you prefer. StockCam is oversaturated. GCam has more natural color if you switch AWB.
The biggest reason why i use GCam is, that it has way more options for fine tuning.
StockCam has only fixed preferences.

Unfortunately EIS doesn't work on 4K/60fps mode. Can you fix this? Apart from this, it is really good.

Tried https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/perfect-gcam-for-poco-f3.4326991/ on LineageOS 18.1

All three back lenses/sensors (main/ultrawide/microspur) seem to work. However:

(1) Video recording (camcorder) occasionally stops working while switching among three lenses. The preview image turned black. Taking photographs rather than recording video doesn't seem to have this problem. Ah, it seems that video recording is simply unavailable with microspur/ultrawide? Found fix for recording video with ultrawide/microspur aux cameras at https://t.me/ngcamchat - just enable the "Restart" in the Lib Patcher settings & then the app will restart on switching among aux/back cameras.

(2) Ultrawide seems to take distorted images. I think it should just be the natural result of such wide-angle sensor? Neverthesis, the stock MIUI camera does provide a correction option for wide-angle photos (although it may sacrifice something barely noticable?) - unfortunately I can't find similar option in (this?) Gcam.

    hi guys, wanted to let you know this gcam :


    + this config :



    works like a charm on the poco F3 as it is for the IMX582/586 based Mi9T...

    for main camera everything works and is perfect! even 4K/60fps with EIS is working like a charm and portraits and shots from the main sensor is as sharp and clean as ever.


    tough i cannot seem to get the other two sensors to work... something inside the advanced settings, would be really grateful if some1 could help me with this one :)

    btw - tried various other gcam's and none got to this kind of quality in terms of the main sensor - this one is perfect!

    help here would be highly appreciated :)
