Hey, I've started work on porting google camera onto Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Gcam development:
Changelogs and downloads:

Here are available versions: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-wyroczen/

64MP RAW enabler module and new 64mp capable google camera app is here! :D Check out my celsoazevedo page :)

Buffer fix:

Hey, so here it is, buffer fix for Redmi Note 8 Pro.
It's first version, not perfect yet. It will be available on celsoazevedo soon :)
Compatibility:
Android 9 MIUI
Android 10 Custom roms
Android 10 MIUI - untested
What it will give you?
It will fix lag in all gcam apps (mostly 7.x are affected because of no working in app fix yet).
Problems:
As it is first version, it has it's own flaws:
Aux cameras will be super smooth, main camera will still lag a little and sometimes hangs for less than a 1s.
Other bugs?
Please report every encountered bug on RN8P gcam telegram group.

Hello. Thank you for your work. The wide-angle camera and macro work fine in HDR + mode, the main camera does not want to start, the black screen
 
Hey, I've started work on porting google camera onto Redmi Note 8 Pro.

App is in testing stage.
Changelogs and downloads:
Here is first public available test version available: https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-wyroczen/

As of now I'm not sure whether gcam can fully work on Mediatek device. Main camera has blackscreen as of now. HDR+ seems to work on Wide and Macro, but it needs further testing.
As I don't have this device, I can't check by myself whether some functions are working good or not. Feel free to test everything carefully :) Logs (from app on phone or adb logcat), and photo comparisons with stock camera app would be appreciated ;)

Are you developer?
You understand coding and developing?
Can you give us answer to one question,and help us all..
This Mediatek chipset , is possible to develop custom ROMs? This chipset is no different than the others..
So if possible to create ,develop ROMs, Kernel and other stuff?
Thanks in advance.

First of all thank you for your efforts.

I tried to test your version. Here you'll find the logcat output. I filtered using grep com.google.android.apps.camera to avoid too much noise. If you need specific test please tell me which steps i had to perform.

Hope this helps.

Hey, I'm gcam modder, not rom developer ;)
It is possible to develop custom roms, kernels, and "other stuff" but it would be better to have full kernel source from xiaomi

Hey, thanks for log :) But sadly it is lacking some needed camera info. If you can you may send me full log from using that gcam ;)

I dont know how to get the logs, but I can describe overall workability.

As said: when option RAW_SENSOR checked in FIX settings, there are full working HDR+ and HDR+ Enchanced on aux Camera - Wide and Macro, and on the front camera.
With alternative config Night Sight is also working, on three cameras. So as the Portrait Mode.
Also capture RAW-dng, seems to be ok.

Noticed issues:
Crash on video
Crash when trying to get to Settings from aux cameras, but if in Aux Cameras settings check the switch "Disable Settings Mode", button Settings is still present and there is no crash anymore.
There are problems with initialization of aux cameras. They starting from time to time. It can be a black screen or loading animation or non-active shutter button. Switch to Front Camera and back helps in 95% of cases.
Problem with deinitialization of camera session. Safety app is sending notification that "The Camera is using Camera in the background", even if forcibly shutdown gcam through the app manager. It causes another system bug, with the notification LED blinking or constantly on with no visible reason..
For now, all that I tested or remembered :)

You need to change to RAW_SENSOR in fix menu
Also there is an xml for rn8pro which will fix lag in viewfinder

Oh yes...thanks you...
It's Ok...

I take some macro and wideangle pictures
In most cases Gcam is better :
- captures more détails
- hasn't some unreal AI process you can find on Xiaomi's cam
- most time, better colors

But in one case, I get crazy colors on macro.
This one is better with Gcam :

Than on stock :

This is crazy pink colors with Gcam (only case I get) :
http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2019/44/2/1572366917-img-20191029-123321.jpg
And more accurate (orange) on stock
http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2019/44/2/1572366916-img-20191029-123339.jpg

Wide angle :
More details in trees, more contraste in foggy Sky, less AI artifacts (sharpen) in lighter trees in the middle :
http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2019/44/2/1572367494-img-20191029-131721.jpg
Stock camera :
http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2019/44/2/1572367491-img-20191029-131731.jpg

Promising work!
First Time I use Gcam...

Can't even get the camera to initiate within the app. It shows in the background only on the "More" tab. Also, app crashes when location setting toggled off.
