How to enable 48x Zoom on GCam?

There is no specific setting that has to be enabled to achieve this. Just use the zoom slider to get the maximum zoom the phone supports.

How to capture 48MP on Redmi Note 7 Pro GCam without ROOT?

Only the above relevant GCam supports 48MP resolution without rooting the phone but unfortunately that is only supported on Portrait mode and not on the normal HDR+ mode. So, the idea is to enable HDR+ on portrait mode and use the portrait mode for default image capturing. But the problem with this is every image captured on portrait mode is stored in its own directory.

To enable 48MP resolution picture on Redmi note 7 Pro follow the below instructions:

  • Go to Settings > Back camera photo resolution > Select the 48.0 megapixels
  • Then go to BSG MOD Settings > Enable Disable zoom in portrait mode
  • In the BSG MOD Settings, enable Enhanced HDR+ in portrait mode

When the image is captured go to see the file information and the resolution must be 8000×6000 which makes a resolution of 48 millions of pixels or 48MP.

Prevent portrait images on GCam to be saved in a new folder

Portrait mode creates a separate folder. To prevent this, change the below setting:
Go to Settings > Advanced (under custom settings) > Enable Save to /DCIM/Camera

How to enable Astro Photography mode on GCam 7?

By default the astro photography mode is not enabled on this GCam 7.0 for Redmi Note 7 Pro. In case you want to change the setting, follow the below instructions to enable or disable the astrophotography mode.

  • Go to GCam Settings
  • Scroll down and go to Advanced settings
  • Then scroll down almost to the end till you get Use astrophotography Mode under Night Sight settings.

Below are the screenshots that shows how to enable the astrophotography mode.

How to shoot in astrophotography mode on GCam 7.0?

Once the Astrophotography mode is enabled, there are certain conditions to be met to capture photos in that mode.

Following conditions must be met to capture in Astrophotography mode (known as cuttlefish in Google Camera ports like this):
– It can be enabled on Night Sight mode (only)
– The phone must be kept static (use a tripod or keep the phone somewhere to keep it static)
– There must be low light condition
– It may take few seconds for this mode to come up when the above conditions are met

See the below screenshots to get an idea how to know if it is shooting in Astrophotography mode in GCam 7.0?

When the display shows something like “Astrophotography on” or “Phone is steady” or “Capturing cuttlefish” while capturing photo in Night Sight mode, then most likely it is shooting in astrophotography mode otherwise not.
When I kept the phone static in front of a good light source, the Astrophotography mode did not turn on no matter how longer I waited.
So, make sure it is a low light environment.
