The GCam 8.2 for Poco F1 is now available which has quick video capture, video stabilization etc. It also has a seamless slow motion and timelapse video recording at different speeds.

Poco F1 does not have AUX lenses so it does not have seamless zoom. The seamless timelapse recording feature works well. You can record at different timelapse speed in one go.

The Google camera 6.2 provides night sight feature and the GCam 7.x comes with Astrophotography mode along with other legacy features.

Status of this Poco F1 Google Camera:

– Everything works
– Slow motion

Except Slow motion all other features of Google Camera works pretty well. Personally I feel like the slo-mo feature of the MIUI camera is better as it provides 960fps super slow-mo video recording.

Usually, following conditions must be met to capture in Astrophotography mode (known as cuttlefish in Google Camera ports like this) if manually not force enabled:
– 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

[su_note note_color=”#FBF4DD” text_color=”#A38C68″ radius=”3″ class=”” id=””]- When the display shows something like “Astrophotography is on” or “Capturing cuttlefish” (or on some GCam ports nothing is shown at all) while capturing photo in Night Sight mode, then it is shooting in astrophotography mode otherwise not.
– If the GCam takes a lot of time usually more than 30 seconds then it is capturing in astro mode.
– When I kept the phone static in front of a good light source, the Astrophotography mode did not turn on.
So, make sure it is a low light environment.[/su_note]
