[OP3/3T] Modded Google Camera with HDR+, 60FPS video and Slow Motion

Issue with MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV1l_ENG.apk

Whenever opening the Camera app, it will then immediately redirect to an external link (https://www.celsoazevedo.com/files/android/google-camera/dev-bsg/help/1/)

Can't use camera at all, or change any settings as it repeatedly opens a link in browser.

Have uninstalled, then downloaded and reinstalled. Same issue.

Issue is NOT present using Arnova file "Gcam-8.1.101.build-V6.2.211013.2305_Snap.apk"

Any ideas, thanks?

I've passed the info along to BSG. In case you want to "force" BSG's attention... report this bug on his thread:

this is the version seems to work fine for me except the rear camera in normal mode, it's just black screen. But it works in 360 or wide or blur mode.

I use Vsmart active 3 with Helio P60

For people using BSG's GCam 8.1, I recommend that you update to the latest version. I explain here why.
Config files (same as before, from telegram):

- Config file by AX: op3-8.1.xml ( /Downloads/MGC_8.1.101_Configs/ )
- Library to improve quality: MWP-HDRv4.so ( Settings » Libraries )

This should produce detailed and neutral colours.

ROY also created a config:

- OnePlus3-BSG-HKR.xml

I don't know which config is the best one.

Main thread updated with the latest 8.1 from BSG and Wichaya:

- MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV2b (BSG, 2022-05-31, configs)

- GCam_8.1.101_Wichaya_V1.5 (Wichaya, 2021-12-12, configs)

Configs/settings from previous versions should work well on these versions. The Wichaya update is already from December... I forgot to update this thread.

I don't know if it works on this phone, but BSG's 8.4.600 is now "stable". In case someone wants to test it, this is the most recent one.

By the way, are there still many OP3/3T users here or have you all moved to new phones?

BSG ve Wichaya'dan en son 8.1 ile güncellenen ana başlık:

- MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV2b (BSG, 2022-05-31, yapılandırmalar )

- GCam_8.1.101_Wichaya_V1.5 (Wichaya, 2021-12-12, yapılandırmalar )

Önceki sürümlerdeki yapılandırmalar/ayarlar bu sürümlerde iyi çalışmalıdır. Wichaya güncellemesi zaten Aralık ayından... Bu konuyu güncellemeyi unuttum.

Bu telefonda çalışıyor mu bilmiyorum ama BSG'nin 8.4.600'ü artık "kararlı". Birisi test etmek isterse, bu en sonuncusu .

Bu arada, burada hala çok sayıda OP3/3T kullanıcısı var mı yoksa hepiniz yeni telefonlara mı geçtiniz?
Can you install gcam for tecno camon 18p?
I tried but it doesn't work.

    Stable versions and configs for the OnePlus 3/3T.

    [ FAQ's/Troubleshooting | Front camera fix | ARCore & Playground ]​

    Features depend on the GCam and Android version used, but overall:

    - HDR+ Enhanced, Night Mode, Portrait Mode, Timelapse, Motion Photos, Lens Blur, Panorama, Photo Sphere, Photobooth, Motion tracking.
    - Video (30/60FPS at 1080p, 30FPS at 4K), Timelapse, Slow motion (with a fix, check the FAQs for more info).
    - ARCore and Playground (follow this guide);

    How to use:
    1. Download and open/install the apk file (how to).
    2. Unless there's a "configs" or "suggested settings" link next to the download link or some settings posted with the apk, the app is ready for use.

    - Some *old* versions require the front camera fix. 3T users also need this fix in order to take 16MP photos with the front camera.
    - Feel free to explore the settings, but keep in mind that enabling the wrong options will cause problems.
    - Issues? Check the troubleshooting post.

    GCam 6 or 7 are probably the best for this phone, but newer versions are also available.

    Stable settings for Arnova8G2's apks based on GCam 5.1.014, v10 or above. Tested on a OP3 running LOS 14.1.

    Config camera HDR+:
    Nexus 6 Auto (or something with "Nexus 6" in the name. Nexus 6P and Pixel settings are not stable)
    Pixel 2XL (or Nexus 6P if you want more detailed images)
    HDR+ parameters:
    Default (or higher)

    - Check the "Advanced" menu for some useful settings/features:
    -- Portrait mode, RAW, etc (check the main post for a list of working features)
    - Android Oreo users: you may need to go to "Debugging and tools" and uncheck "camera.use_photos" so you can see your photos from inside the app.
    - The rest (video resolution, camera sounds, etc) is up to you.

    - Some of the options mentioned here are not available on older apks.
    - You need to restart the app so the new settings are applied.

    Motion Photos:
    - You need to be running Android 8+ (doesn't work on Android 7 or older);
    - Not as stable as the settings above;
    - You need to have Google Photos installed;

    Config camera HDR+:
    One of the Pixel 2017 settings
    Pixel 2XL
    HDR+ parameters:
    Default (or higher)
    Photo Resolution (important):
    (16:9) 12.1 megapixels (4:3 don't work with motion photos)

    Warning: You need to restart the app so the new settings are applied.


    Why these settings?
    It's up to you. I use the "Nexus 6P" option because it produces more detailed/crisp photos (downside: more noise) when compared to the Pixel settings. Because most users seem to prefer the "Pixel" quality (less noise and smaller file size, but also less detail), if you are one of them, use the "Pixel 2XL" option.

    Config camera HDR+:
    On the OP3/3T we are forced to choose one of the "Nexus 6" settings (Nexus 6 Auto, Nexus 6 ZLS, etc). All the other configs crash the app or work partially (but end up crashing under certain conditions... eg: when taking pictures of bright things).

    HDR+ parameters:
    tl;dr: higher settings = better quality, but it takes more time to process the image.

    Others have shared their tests here and the difference is not huge, so start with the "default" setting (the lower available) and go higher if needed.
    For those who are waiting for a reply, fixes, etc, from Arnova8G2:

    I'm told that he was in a motorcycle accident and spent a few days in the hospital. According to his friend, he's using a wheelchair, but will be able to walk again with physiotherapy. For this reason, he will be away from development for a while.

    I wish him a full and speedy recovery.

    To do a test on OP3/OP3t

    Works on Android 8.1
    - Add fix from B-S-G mod
    - Fix all devices with a green hue on the front camera
    - Fix pink tint for some device Samsung
    - Some fix for OP5t

    Works on OP5t OOS 8.1 B18, OP6 OOS 9.0.1, Mi5 Lineage OS 15.1, Mi5s Lineage OS 16.

    All works except Slow motion, Photobooth and Zoom for OP5t/OP6.
