Full disclosure, I haven't tried this myself so perhaps someone who has can confirm or deny.

Looking at the cameras (assuming you meant the rear camera) online (iPhone 7Plus / iPhone 8Plus), they don't appear to have the same flex cables. The 8Plus cables are longer. Also, Apple has a tendency to make parts slightly different, either with the pinouts of the connectors or the actual connectors themselves even if the internal guts are the same.

no the iPhone 7 Plus ones are longer, I checked iFixit, I wash the 8 plus were longer so you could just fold it in a zig zag

I looked on iFixit, unfortunately the cable connecting to the motherboard on the iPhone 8 Plus is shorter than the iPhone 7 Plus one, so not easily, unless you somehow lengthened the iPhone 8 Plus camera length
