Is the camera issue limited to LineageOS or is it also found in other custom ROMs or even in the official MIUI ROM?
Is it limited to specific firmware versions?

I saw posts where users are reporting problems when using the MIUI stock camera in the "Pro" mode and increasing the exposure to 1 second or above. I don't know if it is the same issue. But I don't know whether the stock camera was used on a custom ROM or on MIUI.

I own the 4 GB version and I can confirm an issue with the camera when using gcam or other apps which access the camera on LineageOS 18.1. When the picture stops updating in the viewfinder you can get it to work again by switching the mode (e.g. change from "Camera" to "Video").

That is not a real Solution.
It keeps freezing also in what's app when on video calling because Android 11 automatically uses the stock camera.

@erfanoabdi: There is a solution to fix the camera issues on lavender according to the maintainer of the RevengeOS ROM @raiyanbinmohsin.

I have messaged the maintainer of the lavender LineageOS 18.1 ROM about this. Apparently the camera issue has been fixed in the RevengeOS ROM so there is a working solution.

Same problem with camera here. I was trying to install various alternative cameras, but no one worked. Now I cannot even open camera any longer, it says: camera not installed. Any application which is using camera is not working.

Really annoying. I should have red complete thread before installing Lineage 18.1. I think I go back to LOS17.1 which was working just fine.

    Introduction:
    This is the Official Lineage OS 17.1 thread for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, codename lavender.

    Join our Lineage Development Telegram Group!

    How to Install:
    Please follow the instructions on our Official LineageOS Wiki page here.

    If you don't follow these instructions, please don't expect support here. We also don't support 3rd party addons (Magisk/XPosed/Dolby/Viper/etc.), so please don't seek support if you use these.

    Notes:
    • Official Lineage OS builds will not pass CTS/SafetyNet -- due to the AVB flag's "red" status. (Magisk works fine with SafetyNet patcher modules, though is not supported.)

    Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 (lavender) Losing Official Support

    Edit: Good news! A new maintainer stepped up and the Redmi Note 7 is officially supported again as you can see in the LineageOS wiki Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 (lavender).
    ***

    Bad new as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 (lavender) is losing official support as you can read in this Lineage Gerrit Code Review Merged commit: hudson: Drop Redmi note 7 (lavender): "Don’t have device anymore".

    As you can read in the LineageOS wiki > Devices and check Show discontinued devices > Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 (lavender):

    WARNING: The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 is no longer maintained. A build guide is available for developers that would like to make private builds, or even restart official support.
    The old builds are automatically removed from the LineageOS servers after 4~6 weeks so you should save a copy of at least the last build & Lineage recovery if you have this model.

    Naturally if an other volunteer developer steps up & picks up the torch new builds may become available again.

    Thank you to maintainer @erfanoabdi for supporting this device for so long & also for all his other numerous contributions as you can see in the LineageOS Gerrit with this search.

    Hey guys! I had the same issue with SafetyNet and I fixed it. What you need to do is open Magisk and there is a section marked "Downloads" look for BusyBox and Magisk Props. Install those and Termux from the app store, and then reboot your phone. Once you reboot your phone open Termux and type in "su" then grant it permission, then type "props", then "1" then "f", then type in the relevant number for your manufacturer and device (Redmi note 7 lavender), say yes to everything and then reboot.

    Once I did that it passed SafetyNet and everything worked
