The latest Arnova8G2 build works great for me, everything works (HDR, Night Sight, portrait, even 60fps video on front AND back cameras) and I haven't run into any tint on the front camera. My only issue is the lack of wide angle support.
There are some Google Camera versions out there that support the wide-angle camera (like BSG's version MGC_6.1.021_MI8_V2e), but are less stable for video and front camera use. They also cannot be installed alongside the more stable Google Cameras like Arnova8G2's build, so I found myself having to uninstall/reinstall different Google Camera APKs depending on if I want to take good videos or want to use the wide-angle camera.

EDIT: Looks like Arnova8G2 released a beta version Google Camera build with AUX camera support (unfortunately I don't have my 5Z to test this right now)

Portrait mode not working on gcams

I have tried versions from BSG, Arnova8G2, trCamera and recently I'm not able to click portrait photos, they just turn out to be normal photos after a click. Stock camera can click portrait. Also when switching to portrait mode the viewfinder does not crop in like it usually did. Not working only on the back camera Is this a common problem and any solution would help. Please guide me. Currently using Arnova8G2 latest version.

It's been a while. As you probably know. Gcam 6.2 is very stable for our devices.
The current versions are "UNI_CAM_v1.2a_P.apk" or Q.

- If you see black and white photos just go to settings and restart the app.

As for the gcam 7, it's work in progress as of now. But you can try some of the builds from Celso website.
7.0.009 should work on android 9.
7.1+ only for android 10

The previous built of Gcam is not working on Asus Zenfone 5z after Android 10 update. Hope to get a new built and thanks in advance.

Hey guys, what versions of gcam are you using? I think I have used a fully functional version (the new one 7.something) but lost it by factory reset. Can someone give me some recommendations?
P.s. One broken thing was the slow motion video recording

You can try Urnyx gcam mod (2.1). Currently that's the best version for 5z, but it doesn't have slow motion video working yet.

Hi,

I've installed Gcam 7.3.020 from Arnova8G2 or TlnNeun on Zenfone 5 and they work well, except for the SlowMotion, but with both I can't seem to make the phone take 12mp pictures. When Full Res is selected, in 4:3 format it takes 2MP stills. When I select 16:9 it uses 8MP. Is there a way to fix this?

How can I switch to wide camera?

Which config is required for GCam_7.3.018_Urnyx05-v1.8_Wichaya V2? The Configs link for Wichaya V2 doesn't have 5Z listed.
Will the Arnova's config work with Wichaya V2? Or it does not require any config?

It works with the same config for 5z but you have to activate the Telephoto lens in Advanced -> Auxiliary camera instead of Wide.
