  1. I am using the Xperia 1V, installed the MGC_8.1.101_A9_GV2b_MGC.apk.
    But it got crash when using the Video Time Lapse or Slow Motion function.
    not sure is it just me?

    • Hi Sam, Slow Motion isn’t working with this GCam on the Xperia 1 V. If I find a more compatible GCam, I will add a link to it.
