Google Pixel 3a
Wait you mean to tell me that if you have Android 9, the best gcam mod for this phone is still backrider's 1.3a? I thought all these updates and new versions added some things..

backrider worked on the port specially for the nokia 7+ (check out how big the dedicated thread is, there has been a lot of testing and adjusting by him) so it was a fully working stable port with great quality.
Updates are ok but tuning the details for the N7+ is the other side.
For example, front camera and skin color was a thing, good result at the end.
Now the ports have many parameters, so one can finetune, but le me see who is gonna test everything (libpatcher,white balance etc...)
Backriders port was also "good and ready out of the box" for the N7+, no settings were needed.

Btw i sold my N7+ now and Im happy with my pixel 3a... no more test pics lol.

Great that the telelens is finally working! Seems to work fine, however the viewport in normal photo mode seems very laggy/sluggish compared to other ports, or is it just me?

btw latest tigr mod (tr camera) also supports telephoto.
Both Nikita and tigr are the most stable (almost) without green square and crashes.
NGcam only crashed ones - since September.

Agree with you, but you should try killercam.
Despite being an older version, I have the feeling it takes even better shots... I'm jumping from one to other and it's difficult to decide...

GCam 8.1.101 Parrot043 V3.apk
Changelog

Well, now it's time to add Library Patcher to the application settings. This decision was made not by me, but at the request of the community. Also, this update was set to fix certain problems when using wide-angle lenses in certain modes.

Will there be a V4? If there are critical errors and I can correct them, there will be. And so at the moment I started 8.2.204. Basically, on February 8, 204, they "improved" fast shooting by adding a recording lock, as well as zooming to the left with a swipe. Also in 8.1.200 (intermediate version) was added on / off auto night shooting in the curtain. These pairs of changes already give a hint to move to 8.2.204, as well as to support the update of the version of Google Camera.

Thanks for posting, does this work on our phone? As I don't think any version of Google camera 8 does.

I don't think we'll ever get a stable Google camera like we did on Android 9.
I am with trCamera v7 Xmas edition since Xmas and it works fine.
Nikita mods are stable as well. Both support 2nd lens.

As for v8 most of them don't work as missing lots of settings inc crucial one - disable hexagon.
GC 8 mods with hexagon on/off option work but not perfect at all.

Parrot works but I suggest 8.1.011_Aspen... (al_ro aka marlin_ku)
And go to advanced to disable hexagon.
You can keep GC7 as well.
Not perfect anyways.

If you use parrot -you should clone it otherwise it updates GC7 and that's no cool as GC7(tigr or nikita) is stable.

It's working ;)

I want try but still not comes in Celso's page...
Parrot043: This year I left Celsoazevedo of my own accord. Yes, Celso brought me an income of about $ 100, but somehow I don't care about them when my interests change in my life to mod the camera. BSG, which understood and launched the 8.x.x version, adds obstacles to it, and shares a version that can be modified only with selected modders (ala hamsters) - let him choke on this version, this BSG of yours.

    GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test2.2
    Changes vs. test2.1 :
    - Under Advanced -> Port settings | (More advanced settings) :
    ---> Added "Pixel 3 AWB" (thanks to @Tomar777's suggestion and Toylann009's ports): this is turned on by default. I observed that when toggled ON, it produces more accurate and natural colors. Note that this only affects the rear camera. Check the comparison here.
    ---> Changed "Use custom lib" to Eszdman v3: I haven't done any tests here, but anyone might be interested. Stock lib is still my personal preference.
    - Added "Lens Blur" mode: toggle is on the left of Panorama. A bonus addition since I really don't use it, but again someone might be interested.
    - Performance improvements: I hope I'm right about this. So far it's working better in my device. #seemsfaster

    NOTE: fresh re-install or "clear storage" after installation is recommended to clear up isolated cases like crashing Portrait Mode, etc.

    Known issues:
    - Tap-to-focus in video mode breaks autofocus; workaround is switching to other modes and back.
    - Manual white balance in camera mode doesn't work (even in other ports, I believe). But it works in Photobooth; in Portrait Mode, it works after tapping the screen to focus. Suggested workarounds are (1) to use Portrait Mode for taking photos that need manual white balance adjustments, or (2) post-editing the photo.
    - Tap-to-focus doesn't seem to work in Lens Blur mode.
    - There might be instabilities with heavy usage.


    Whew, I can't believe I still managed to make an update with my very tight schedule. Haha. The previous v2.1 was my main driver for the past weeks, and I suppose these minor updates are worth it. Okay, back to work and studying. Again, this port needs no extra config. Cheers!

    GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test1.2
    Changes vs. test1.1 :
    - Fixed tap-to-focus crash bug in video mode
    - Added "Save portraits to DCIM/Camera/" under Advanced (thanks to Toylan009's port)
    - Minor UI tweaks

    I feel like I had to rush and post this one for the video crash fix. I'll be adding "necessary" features one at a time to keep things stable. I'm still learning this coding stuff, though, so it'll take time for me to get things going. At least everything seems okay so far.

    GCam_6.1.021_N7P_test2.1
    Changes vs. test2 :
    - Under Advanced -> Port settings | (More advanced settings) :
    ---> Added "Saturation adjustments" (thanks to [MENTION]Toylann009[/MENTION]'s and BSG's ports): I included a toggle to apply custom saturation adjustments; if disabled, the default Google settings are used.
    ---> Changed "Use custom lib" to Eszdman v2: in my tests, it does a good job with high contrast scenarios in good light, but tends to produce more noise in low light.
    ---> Added "Maximum brightness" (also thanks to [MENTION]Toylann009[/MENTION]'s port): sets max brightness in viewfinder mode. May consume battery, especially since our device doesn't have OLED display for the black areas of the screen.
    ---> Edited "HDR+ Enhanced frames": Default is now set to =7 (which is Google default).
    - Default JPEG quality is set to 97%: I find this the sweet spot for both quality and image file size.
    - Minor UI edits: a few re-wordings here and there. I've also added a note for the Disable zoom in Portrait mode for added information (read this for more info)

    NOTE: fresh re-install or "clear storage" after installation is recommended to clear up isolated cases like crashing Portrait Mode, etc.

    Known issues:
    - Tap-to-focus in video mode breaks autofocus; workaround is switching to other modes and back.
    - Manual white balance in camera mode doesn't work (even in other ports, I believe). But it works in Photobooth; in Portrait Mode, it works after tapping the screen to focus. Suggested workarounds are (1) to use Portrait Mode for taking photos that need manual white balance adjustments, or (2) post-editing the photo.
    - There might be instabilities with heavy usage.


    P.S. Just to give you guys a heads-up, I may or may not return to this project since I have to begin prioritizing time for work and studies. Looks like these optimizations and additions are enough for the regular user; in most cases, this port needs no extra config. Cheers!

    I will go over these things once, and once only.
    Firstly, let's keep things on-topic and productive here, the topic being the Nokia 7 Plus users who use this mod.
    Talk of which phone is better than which is for other forum areas.
    Secondly this is, again, the Nokia 7 Plus forums. If you want to have the mod on another device, you're welcome to do as other devs have done here and port it to said device, or make a request for it in that devices Q/A forum. You may also try posting in the Google Camera Mods sub-forum.
    Alternatively, you can PM someone you think might be capable of making it happen, but they are under no obligation to you to do it or even respond to your PM. You should also not harass someone via PM under any circumstances.
    Remember, Developers do this work out of their spare time. You are not their boss and this is not their day job.
    Thirdly, I'll remind everyone of the XDA Rules, these ones especially:
    2.1 Language: XDA is a worldwide community. As a result, what may be OK to say in your part of the world, may not be OK elsewhere. Conversely, while reading posts from other members, remember that the word you find offensive may not be offensive to the writer. Tolerance is a two-way street.
    2.3 Flaming / Lack of respect: Never post in a demanding, argumentative, disrespectful or self-righteous manner.
    15. Keep threads / posts on-topic: Whilst a minor amount of off-topic posting may be overlooked, the general rule is that your posts / threads must be relevant to the Forum / thread in which you are posting.
    Future posts of this nature are welcomed to be brought to the attention of the moderation team.
    Thanks.

    GCam_6.1.021_test1.apk
    First attempt to make all "essential" features work. Looks like everything's working nicely, including:
    - All photo things (HDR+, Portrait mode, Panorama, Photo Sphere)
    - Video (I still recommend stock Nokia Camera especially for the OZO audio)
    - Zoom (not sure if Super Res Zoom works, though)
    - Burst shot
    - Night sight
    - Tracking autofocus
    - Motion photos
    - Photobooth
    - Slow motion
    - Auto lens distortion correction (for front camera)
    - Playground (AR stickers) (download here)
    - Launching from lockscreen

    Stock settings only, no additional config. However, under Advanced, I added the following toggles:
    - Use Classic Photo Viewer (default uses Google Photos; however, Google Photos has this bug that closes the photo if HDR+ is not yet finished processing)
    - HDR+ Enhanced for Portrait (for those who want increased dynamic range for portrait mode; force close app to apply changes)

    This is based on @Arnova8G2's Dec-9 port (original port here). NOTE that this works on my Nokia 7 Plus (TA-1046) on Android 9.0 Pie.

    One known issue is with Night Sight where you cannot take a photo after 2 consecutive shots; you need to wait until the first photo is finished processing before you can take another shot. There might be lags and crashes, but it's working fine for me so far.

    Special thanks to: @Arnova8G2 for all the base ports and all the help in troubleshooting; B-S-G for the base ports too, source of learnings, and; @cstark27 for all things learned from your Pixel 1/2/3 port page and the source of the Advanced toggles.
