GCam 7.0 On MIUI 11, Astrophotography & More!
Wassup? Hope everyone is good. Today, I bring good tidings. What is it? The newly launched Redmi Note 8 Pro is equipped with a high resolution 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 sensor, which is paired with an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. For selfie and video calling, it comes with a 20 MP camera in front, powered by MediaTek Helio G90T SoC and backed with a large 4,500mAh battery. Now, we are blessed with the GCam. Big thanks to wyroczen for his effort porting for Redmi Note 8 Pro meanwhile Arnova8G2 and BSG for the available GCam mod. Let's do it.
Google camera mode
What's not working
Google Camera 6.1.021
Google Camera 5.1.018
* Base was changed to wyroczen mod of xcam. *It wasn't properly tested yet.* For the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro.
- Main/Wide/Macro switch (Main camera still have blackscreen)
+ It should have less noise in Wide and Macro cameras
+ HDR+ should work in Wide/Macro/Front
+ Portrait should work at least in front
- Nightsight not working
- Fixed excessive noise on aux cameras (thanks to Savitar).
- Separate AWB settings for lenses.
- Opening settings from aux cameras is not crashing anymore but lens will be reseted to main after exiting settings (need to use proper config wyroczen_rn8pro_3.xml)

Next, once downloaded, go-to your File manager, click the downloaded GCam Apk OR click & install right from the floating message from the screen pull-down notification.
Enable "Allow from this source" options followed by clicking "Install" to accept the installation of Camera. You can click "Cancel" during the installation but you think GCam is not for you.
After Mi Security check, click "Open" and Walla!, it's launching flawlessly. Now you can start shooting at will.
Next, allow all required permission for GCam to function.

Samples of Stock vs GCam
Well, I am again amazed with the stunning pictures with GCam. It's a must have tool, especially for Redmi Note 8 Pro considering it is equipped with the state of art lens and camera setup. With Google Camera you could enjoy the features of the latest Pixel 3. It just gives every camera shooter a sense of gratification and renewed perspective in Mobile Photography with GCam. Once again my gratitude to wyroczen, Arnova8G2 and BSG for doing a great job even though there more work to be done to get the mod to perfection and everything to work as it is. From my experiment GCam V6.1.021 failed at Portrait mode, Night Sight mode returned a black screen meanwhile Video mode and Slow Motion mode simply crashed. For a better experience GCam V5.1.018 works flawlessly, minus the Night Sight, Photobooth and Portrait features. Meanwhile, as for wyroczen mod is on-going as we speak. I will update the thread once I have more pictures taken and latest version available. Thanks.
