Hi bruneba, any New versions of the camera mod?
best one is the Gcam Arnova Pixelmod 2 V6 for our Z2 Pro.

I will not work with RR 5.8.3 as there is no Cam2lib in RR 5.8.3

Change to RR 6.0. It supports GcamMod ;)

using the method MRDA suggested for Noguat ROMs , it might work on RR 5.8.3.. He tested on AEX and I tested on MIUI ROM (both nougats) and GcamMod works on both ROMs

I tested on RR 5.8.3 earlier: kept on crashing, so I'm guessing it's a no-go on that ROM.

Ok it seems Lenovo fixed their login problem in their Chinese forum so I could able to download this version of ZUI with Gcam support and upload it to Mega..anyone interested can download from the link below..
Sidenote: unfortunately original camera doesn't work on this version, only Gcam according to Chinese forum,would be nice to have both so that we could use OIS for videos.

it seems like someone solved cam2api in ZUI , i found below topic in Chinese forums.. ZUI 3.1.218 supports Gcam , can someone download the ROM and share on mega or gdrive ?

Does OIS make a difference when taking still pictures from/of a moving vehicle? Does anyone notice a difference using GCam on the latest custom ROMs from using it on beta/Nougat? Does the former result in blurrier pics? Decided to try out latest custom ROMs, but I want to know before taking it out on the road.

I can't comment on OIS side of your question but Gcam is working quite good for me on MIUI 9 Nougat ROM. It's not very stable, sometimes it force closes but pic quality seems same as in Oreo ROMs.

One thing I should add here ,as shown in below link I added EIS activation through build.prop and it seems Gcam video stabilization improved after adding that command. I recently did it(only like 5 minutes ago) and did some video tests, seems like shakiness visibly decreased. But about photo improvement related to stabilization I can't comment.
