It would be interesting to see the results.
I was impressed with Pixel camera app on my old phone, it was way better than stock app, and my old phone had a really bad camera hardware. Yet the pictures it gave were surprisingly good.
In combination with P30P's hardware, it would probably blow everything else out of the water...

Is that possible? I know the GCam app saved my Galaxy S10+. It's the only reason I still have it. I didn't think you could do it on Huawei phones?

The app would have to be changed to work on Huawei phones and therefore it´s Kirin processor. So far i do not know any version of the google camera mod for the Kirin 980 wich are really working good

There were working ports on kirin 970(same architecture), but only on android 8 - so the chipset itself is not a problem. They blocked the support since emui 9.

Gcam 5.1.018.17762477 port works on my P30PRO but has worse results than Huawei app - link https://customtech.es/tutorial-gcam...ra-los-kirin-980-de-los-huawei-mate-20-series

in addition, the portrait mode and night sight are missing...

Interesting! I would assume the results are worse because it has not been developed with tweaks specific to the P30 series. The fact that it works means that there could be some action in this area! Thank you.

This version made by BSG V2e: MGC_6.1.021_MI8_V2e.apk worked for me (kind of, crashes quite often on settings change, but still).
The only worthy addition to Stock camera is the "Photosphere" panoramas, other than that the Huawei stock app provides far better results due to the fact that GCam has absolutely no support for Kirin CPU I assume :confused:

Try and experiment carefully with the settings within the app. :fingers-crossed:
Or you can try any other mod from dev-suggested page.

Honestly P30 Pro seems like an awesome device so far,

and not sure there is a need for GCam (the mentioned port really does the job with panoramas in Photosphere) as the Stock camera app is quite good ;)
Exactly....i have used pixel 3 and s10.... And there is no need of gcam on this phone. Camera is already awesome.....

    I would donate only for an existing and working app. No one needs a half-solution.

    Me too!
    Definitely I would donate to a working 100% version.

    Huawei P30 Pro is the Champions in Low Light and Zoom, but when on daylight Pixel do better, especially on Selfie Camera. That I why I hope someone out there ported GCam to P30 Pro

    Same here for the amount of mps it got should be much better than what it is right now.

    So since when is the amount of megapixels an indicator of quality?

    The reason why the GCam never seems to work out well for the P30 Pro is because it's unable to do pixel binning or HDR. I understand it's partially because it doesn't know how to work with the Kirin 980 chipset, which explains why it seems to perform well on Snapdragon 855s and the former ones (Xiaomi Mi9 and OnePlus 7 Pro are both perfect examples of where users have been able to utilize the port it well).

    Until it supports it, the stock camera should still be better. We've come a long way - the latest .178 is miles better than what we originally had at release so there isn't much reason to try and switch.

    If the camera had come a long way then it must have been total crap before.. The P30 Pro camera is really quite bad.. A phone off this price and a camera that's been hyped so much should not produce image quality only suitable for Instagram on the phone screen, this is all its any good for.. Gcam app on my LG v30 and my wife's Samsung with gcam produced far better results with no over processed looking images but with great detail with not oversharpened images in a majority of cases. Seems to be so many fan boys of this phone but I expect they only view the output on this phones sub par screen.. Huawei has ripped everyone off again..
