What does the "OLD CAM" in the notes mean, is the Mi A2 stock camera or an older Gcam version?
A Kernel uses two different blobs in order to make the Camera work perfectly. This word (BLOBS) you know it? Ok, so blobs in simple terms, are a collection of data consisting of binary codes. For instance - 00110 010110 010010 and so on. The collection of such binary numbers in a single entity is known as BLOBS.

When Devs'. compile a Kernel, it depends upon them to choose what blobs type to select - The Old blobs or the New blobs? Theirs not much big difference between both of them. Both works in the same manner. The major difference between an Oldcam and Newcam Kernel is that Oldcam Kernels are compiled (build) using Oldcam blobs (that binary codes collection needed to run camera) Similarly, Newcam Kernels consists of Newcam blobs during compilation.

You just have to Flash the correct cam version in the ROM u are using. ROMs which are based on Oldcam blobs should be used with an Oldcam Kernel. And, ROMs which have Oldcam blobs should use Oldcam Kernel, for ex- MIUI ROMs mainly use Newcam blobs. So, u should flash Newcam Kernel only in them.
