How to enable Astro Photography mode on Redmi Note 8 Pro Google Camera 7.x

  • Go to GCam Settings

How to shoot in astrophotography mode on GCam 7.0 onwards?

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

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.

Of course GCam is good but that does not mean the MI camera is bad. GCam provides better image quality, it has several features of its own which out performs the stock camera app.

But Xiaomi’s stock camera also has some good features which cannot be overlooked such as the Pro features, Vlogging features, and better hardware compatibility.

Summarizing it all, GCam will not replace the MIUI camera rather both the camera apps can be installed on the same phone and you can use each app for which it better suits to your needs.

New features and updates of the GCam APK keep coming, hence there could be many versions of the compatible GCam ports available for the phone “Redmi Note 8 Pro” as of today and in future. This page will always list all the compatible Google Camera versions for the phone.
