Hei Mi fans,

Wassup Mi fans? The excitement of getting MIUI 11 isn't enough, there are many users unable to install their favorite GCam on MIUI 11.

GCam 7.2 works on MIUI 11
Well, as for Redmi Note 8 Pro variant GCam 7.2 is available to go on capturing your best shot on the best available 64MP Quad camera setup. And what your expectations of GCam mod, is all round the corner for grabs with features like Astronomical mode, transparent UI, enhanced Night Sight, Motion Blur, Camera Coaching and HDR+ enhanced captures increase the dynamic range compared to HDR+ to list a few.

Today we are going to highlight on Astrophotography. Anyway, what's Astrophotography, which you heard of but not sure of. Well, as Wikipedia explained, it's a photography of astronomical objects, celestial events, and areas of the night sky. Besides being able to record the details of extended objects such as the Moon, Sun, and planets, astrophotography has the ability to image objects invisible to the human eye such as dim stars, nebulae, and galaxies. This is done by long time exposure since both film and digital cameras can accumulate and sum light photons over these long periods of time.

Taking Astrophotography images
It's pretty simple, just go out and sit at your garden or something, make sure to bring a tripod to get satisfactory results without having to lug bulky cameras, telescopes, and other equipment. It's so much easier than you thought, require less planning, and not to mention be cheaper and open up astrophotography to a much wider range of people. Place your phone on the tripod, choose Night sight, then choose enhanced HDR+, personally I also choose wide crop for ratio and tap the screen to focus and click the shutter. For better result, use a BT remote button.

Photo Sphere, HDR+ and Night Sight shots
To capture a Photo Sphere, go-to More, choose Photo Sphere, click the shutter button and align the blue for against the white outline circle as you turn around 360° until you complete the sphere motion. In addition to GCam 7.0 you can quick share your photos right from the camera app up to 3 social apps of your choice.

Google Camera 7.2 mod APK which is ported by onFire (Abhi) which works on Redmi Note 8 Pro. It is possible that some features might not be working as expected, nevertheless it's currently in beta status. For more info to install GCam on Redmi Note 8 Pro or Mi Phone, read Installing GCam for Redmi Note 8 Pro and for some mod that require a config.xml read to activate it, How to Load/Save XML Configs for GCam (Google Camera)

For a stable Google Camera 7.2, stay tuned, will update the thread on the frequency of upcoming updates. That's all for now.
