Thank you for the extremely helpful response. I have tried your settings on Arnova's 5.1.018_v1.2: GCam5.1.018-Arnova8G2-V1.2, everything seems to work fine. But when trying the GCam5.1.018-Arnova8G2-V1.3 with your settings, the app crashes after you look back at the photos you've taken. I suspect its something to do with the Config camera HDR+ set to Pixel 2017 Zsl HDR+. Seems like it does not crash when set to Nexus 6 Auto.
On the latest version, the slow motion crashes on me as well, also can't seem to capture video. Portrait mode works! I don't suppose you've got motion photos working? Thank you.
ive tried 1.4 beta2, video is still a nogo, just black screen and FC. so its back to 1.2 for meYes I have tried that, thank you. It seems version 1.4 beta is out, you could give it a try to see if slow mo is working or not.

yep, I have that installed, thank you. Just checked, version 1.4 is in beta, you should give it a try to see if slow mo has been fixed or not.
in case you guys are interested: i made an image quality comparison of mi max 2 stock, GCam HDR+, GCam HDR+ Enhanced and my own Sony DSC-RX100 camera here
sure thing, check the lineage os thread for posts #847 and #850, thats where i linked the Gcam port including slomo video fix and detailed the settings im using
No, you can have the both. I have Arnova8G2 and B-S-G Google Camera mods, as well as MIUI Camera and Snap Camera ones. Well, that's not all, quite few other camera apps too.
I suggest you try this one: GCam5.1.018-Arnova8G2-V1.5Beta.apk (it is working very well with my Mi Max 2)
oh, 1.5 beta already out, nice lets check and see if it finally works properly with video record and portrait mode...
edit: well well! looks like GCam finally works in video recording mode with a version newer than 1.2 plus, portrait mode is finally here and it works!
however, there are two things to consider:
1) only two phone models work when selecting the HDR+ mode - either "Nexus 6 Auto" or "Pixel 2017 ZSL HDR no PD" (I chose the latter), all other phone models dont work (black screen in camera mode)
2) Due to the restriction to the two phone models, you can only activate regular HDR+, whereas HDR+ Enhanced is not available anymore
So basically, you can choose between
v1.2 for HDR+ Enhanced, but without Portrait Mode
v1.5 beta for regular HDR+, but with Portrait Mode included
