Still without Tele (when I set 3 buttons for back (auxiliary) camera, Tele crashes). FWIW, PXv8.1_GCam-v1.2.apk has 1x and 2x fine, but no Wide.
Well...
The OnePlus 8T doesn't have Tele.
There's the wide, the ultrawide, the macro and the mono/b&w. But we don't have a telephoto.
The cameras where the 2x work are only using digital zoom.

That explains why I can't use the macro camera then. I installed the latest greatness gcam version and works fine overall.

So is there an option to use macro camera on a custom ROM?
For those wondering if macro camera can be used on a custom ROM, the answer is YES: just install HavocOS it has the OxygenOS camera built in. Not strictly related to Google Camera discussion but yeah, you can have both cameras then.

Hi

I've tried to install GCam (+ configs) - actually many different versions - none of them seems to work on my OP 8T(on LineageOS) - everytime i've installed the APK (install works fine), but the app crashes everytime i try to start it, so it's not even possible to load a config-file - does anyone has a solution for me?

Try to give it permissions (camera, mic, storage, etc) in Android settings.

Has anyone noticed a difference in GCam performance on OxygenOS vs custom ROMs? I'm on OOS 11 and getting wild color balance swings and desaturated photos with GCam 7 and 8 versions with provided configs. GCam 7 was performing really well on my OP3T on LineageOS 17.1, and the performance on my OP8T on OOS is definitely a downgrade. Hoping it's just a problem that will go away when I switch ROMs.

Hello!

I was using the 8.1 version on the Android 11 and Photo Sphere was working fine but then I updated the OS to version 12 and the Photo Sphere stopped working.

I'm currently using the GCam8.2.204_Greatness.210716.1733Release_Snap.apk
GCam8.2.204_Greatness.220428.0041Release_Snap.apk
GCam version and it also doesn't work (the Photo Sphere mode).

I also tried 2 config files:
1. Enzo-GR8-Greatness-8.2.204-8T.xml
2. nrG-v3-OP8-8T-Greatness-8.2.204-211115.xml
but no luck.

Was anyone in the same situation and has a tip or two for me? That would be nice.

Thanks

Have you tried the latest GCam8.2.204_Greatness.220428 version?

Hello, me again.

I've downgraded my OS from Android 12 to 11 (due to some OS issues) and I can confirm the Photo Sphere option is working.

Regards,
Jan

I just installed GCam8.2.204_Greatness.210716.1733Release_Snap.apk and used nrG-v3-OP8-8T-Greatness-8.2.204-211115.xml on my OnePlus 8t on Android 12 and photosphere force closes the app. I believe the problem is with Android 12, as that recently updated, and until then my previous version of the google camera worked flawlessly. With it and other versions of the google camera I get an error that says there is no rear camera or something like that, which is obviously false since it uses both cameras fine in regular photo mode. Not sure what's changed with Android 12, but hopefully this is a useful data point. Let me know if I can provide anything else that might be useful.

    Google Camera Port
    Stable versions and configs for the OnePlus 8T.

    While quality on mobile devices has improved a lot in the past few years, Google Camera is often able to produce more detailed photos with better dynamic range. Let's use this thread to compile good/stable GCam versions for the OnePlus 8T.


    Features:
    - HDR+ Enhanced, Night Mode, Astrophotography, Portrait Mode, Timelapse, Motion Photos, Lens Blur, Panorama, Photo Sphere, Photobooth, Motion tracking.
    - Video, Timelapse, Slow motion.
    - All auxiliary cameras work, except the depth camera.
    - AR Playground/Stickers (follow this guide).


    Bugs:
    - Video quality is better on the stock camera, specially video stabilisation and slow motion.
    - Due to OnePlus' decision to restrict access of 3rd party apps to the extra cameras on Android 11, you'll need to use specific "package names" (eg: use the links on this thread). Some cameras (eg: front wide) may still not be available even with the right apk.


    How to:
    1. Download APK (pick the first one if in doubt).
    2. Download config file (often not required, but may help with quality).
    3. Install APK file.
    4. Load config file.

    A short video tutorial is available for new users.


    Downloads:

    Some notes:
    - WARNING: On Android 11, you need to use the "snapcam" package in order to use all cameras.
    - ⭐ = Recommended version.
    - To avoid issues when viewing media from inside GCam, install the Google Photos app (can be used without uploads/Google Account).

    GCam 8 (Android 10+):

    - Greatness ⭐: GCam8.2.204_Greatness.210716.1733Release (2021-07-16, configs)
    - Wichaya: GCam_8.1.101_Wichaya_V1.4 (2021-08-03, configs)
    - Arnova8G2: GCam_6.210406.0204build-8.1.101.apk (2021-05-02, configs)

    GCam 7 (Android 9+):

    - Wichaya ⭐: GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v2.1_Wichaya_V3.1.1 (2020-12-15, configs)
    - Nikita: NGCam_7.4.104-v2.0 (2020-12-06, configs)

    I'll try to keep this post updated with info from the telegram group, but please, leave feedback.


    Thanks:
    To devs like Arnova8G2, BSG, Urnyx05, defcomg, and many other modders and testers that have contributed over the years.

    @jarxxx The existence of config files shouldn't stop users from exploring the settings menu or from testing GCam without any config first to see the "default" quality.

    Configs are made by normal users to fit their usage/preferences. Some configs work well for us, while others are terrible. If you find one that is close to what you like, tweak it to fit your needs and preferences.

    Inside the settings menu, right at the top, there's something to control the exposure. In your case, you probably want to increase it a bit. Test the different values and then choose the one that's better for you.

    Screenshot_20210227-153928376.png


    I would also check the "Lib Patcher" menu, where we can control things like detail, tone curve, etc. Have you tried increasing "Shadows" inside the "Tone Curve" menu?

    Face smoothing is a bug that affects some phones, hopefully it can be fixed on GCam 8. The problem is that if you set up the rear camera for detail, the front will also be very detailed... depending on the settings, it can be a bit "harsh" on your skin. I guess one could use different configs? One more detailed and one more "soft" for selfies? It's an annoyance, sadly.

    I should note that people focus on detail because that's one of the main reasons to use GCam. Users that want Snapchat+Filter-like pictures, probably should use Snapchat (not saying it's your case, but we should use the best tool for the job).

    Video is often better on the stock camera, but under Settings > ("General" section) > Advanced > Stream config, we can select the best "Video Stream Config"... I honestly don't know which one is better for this phone, but some have stabilisation and some don't. I'm not sure if the config you're using sets up this or not.

    Regarding 48MP, OnePlus doesn't allow 3rd party apps to use it. GCam can only access 12MP, which is the default resolution used by the stock camera. I recommend contacting OnePlus and asking them to stop blocking access to 48MP (they don't seem to care, but if enough people ask... maybe we can convince them to change).

    I've downloaded 15 different GCam apps and XML's, uploaded photos to compare them to google drive. Please let me know which one looks best.

    Also, I've started a Facebook Group for OP8T GCam discussion. Please join!

    And this is the updated config for the version above (from enerGy on Telegram, for the 8/8T).

    As discussed on the previous page, if you try to take a photo without using HDR, it will probably fail with this config. GCam should be used with HDR+ On or HDR+ Enhanced though, so it shouldn't a problem for most users.

    This is a beta from Arnova8G2, which supports 8K video and higher resolutions for photos.

    It was shared on the telegram group for the 8 series, so I assume it also works on the 8T.
