Micromax Note 1 was launched recently and has a good performance overall, with respect to the price, barring camera. Many of those who bought Micromax IN Note 1 were looking for a better camera application (GCam), luckily Micromax IN Note 1 supports the Camera2 API, so we went looking for a working version of GCam.

We tried many GCam versions, but apk from only one developer seems to be working at this moment (By BSG), “MGC_8.1.101_A9_PV0g.apk“. It comes with relatively fewer glitches and can be downloaded from the link below.

The GCam 8.x versions(s) supports Astrophotography mode on Micromax In Note 1 along with other older features such as HDR+, portrait mode, etc.
