Is there any working GCam mod available for the MI 9 SE?
I tried several versions, only some of them work partially - night mode is lacking as hell.
Reminds me of the MI8 before they implemented fixes for it in the official ROM.
Did some1 have any more luck with a working version?
Camera2API is enabled and fully supported says Camera2API Probe app..

Yeah, a wide lense support of the gcam as seen on the MI 9 and the LG Series would be really helpfull!

thx will try it.
a general question: how do we ensure that there is no nasty trojan or spyware in those apks ?
is there a way to sandbox those apps ?

so... no progress here, right.
i tested tons and several of modded gcam.. with none of them night mode is working properly. it just struggles around after 2sec and is not usable.

strange the the normal mi 9 has a working version.

is there something missing in case of firmware xiaomi has to patch to make it work? just asking because this was the case on mi8 and mix2s.. after a patch from xiaomi gcams were surprisingly working..

cmiiw, mi 9 se required gcam that has 'Frame Buffer' fix on it. Maybe that was firmware problem or maybe something else... ??*♂️

uhmm no. not correct. buffer fix works indeed for normal gcam usage.. ut the buffer fix doesn't apply to night mode.

Can someone do a little comparison between stock camera and GCam? With some sample. This could be awesome.

A quick comparison from my sofa.... both shots attempted to hold same position, with the focus on the nearest point of the lip of the cup.

Xiaomi.eu 9.5.9 shot on 48M camera mode - link

MGC_6.1.021_MI8_V2e.apk shot on 48M HDR+ camera mode - link

The default settings with Xiaomi camera produced 6000x8000 13.5MB JPEG, on gcam 3000x4000 2.0MB.

Colour reproduction, contrast and detail is so much better with HDR+ processing using gcam camera. This is typical of what I find when comparing gcam to xiaomi camera app.

    Developer (BSG) already working on mod, and there is bug in camera2api, the same, as was in mi8 camera. So developer now trying to get around this problem. On other side we trying to force xiaomi to fix bug via community. If you want better GoogleCam with all functions, please rate and comment here:

    how to use wide lens?
    You can do that by tapping the button for switching the rear and front camera module in the lower left corner of the screen, they added the wide angle to that button. The cycle goes like this: Main>Front>Wide>Back to Main.
