HDR+ for low light is amazing. Although, simple photo (no HDR) is horrible, compared to stock app. It adds a load of noise.
Also, Slow-mo doesn't exist.
I don't like having 2 camera apps on the phone, so I guess I'll stay with stock.

BTW, there is new camera app in work, suposedly, it should be similar to Lumia ones.
Good thing to know. You can't push a lot out of not-the-best-hardware, but there's always a room for improvements.
Also, tested a bit more of this camera app. Still surprised how good was auto hdr+.

I have updated my Nokia 5 on Oreo (Beta) but I don't find any option for video recording in camera interface. Is this a known issue?

On Android 7.1.2 I could use 12 mpx on my Nokia 5, and now using Oreo 8.0 beta v5. 160 only 8.3 mpx is available for photos.
Have you checked Camera>Settings>Resolution? However Nokia 5 has 13mp camera you have mentioned 12mpx.

Yes modded pixel camera used to support 12mp res in android 7.1 but it is now down to only 8.3 mp in android 8.0

Theres a Nokia 5 at my place, and we installed the APP on the link above, but we havent tested it much yet.

But i've noticed the câmera APP to become slow (very slow) and laggy...could you please point me to a version of the APP where that doesn't happen?

Our Nokia 5 is running Oreo and to install gcam i've simply uninstalled the câmera APP that came with the os.

Thanks in advance.

It works pretty well.

It works super, the HDR+ gives better photos than original and portrait mode works superbly. Only bug is it crashes few times , specifically during portrait mode photos . And slow mo video doesn't work. Still thanks a lot. For a great app.
