Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra 48mp GCam samples
3

Here are some samples from Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra wtih 48mp GCam module. I think that the ability to shoot multiframe GCam raws with this configuration (1/1.32" sensor) produces very nice results. The lens is also very sharp and gives detail similar to Ricoh GR III with 24mp APS-C sensor; I've made some comparisons that clearly reveal this. Ricoh still has an edge with finer microcontrast but it's sooo close that I don't really mind!

With this configuration I think I don't need Ricoh anymore – only keeping it because shooting with it is still faster which is sometimes desirable. Taking a 48mp Gcam photo takes many seconds to process, depending on how many HDR+Enhanced frames you set it to use. 48mp also provides possibilities for cropping.

Albeit this is great it's still not ideal to need a rooted phone with Magisk module to achieve this. For a while Mi 10 Ultra was the only phone that I know of with the ability to shoot 48mp RAW. Now there's a new beta version of Arnova GCam that enables 48mp for Oneplus 7 and 8, without root! I have seen some results and they look nice indeed, output is similar to Mi 10 Ultra. But I still think, based on what I've seen, that Mi still has an edge when you look closer (better detail retention).
