The smartphone has only a single lens camera, and still, the phone captures impressive shots. One of the best examples is the Night Sight mode feature for low-light photography, which efficiently manages to capture great shots in Night.

Hi DKt, For Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2, you need to first enable Camera2API, then you can simply install the Gcam Mod port.
Hii.,the capture button is no activated and does not show anything on screen except in panorama mode. After applying those settings it does not even launch the app just a black screen and then app is automatically closes on my device (Honor 7x).
Delete the app and install it again, then Go to Settings > BSG Mod > Input Model > Pixel XL for Rear & Front.
Now close the app and open again, Again open the Settings > BSG Mod > Saturation > Back Camera > set Highlight sat to 2.2 and Shadow sat to 2.6 (for best results). In the case of front camera set Highlight set to 2.0.
Again Close the app and open it again, go to settings > advanced > disable all options, except HEVC/H.265.
After applying these settings, you need to restart the camera app.
And it starts working on your phone.
