    so u r the guy, jimmy , responsible for shittiest gallery app and worst camera optimisation. ill be brutally honest.....u and ur team sucks. you seem unqualified for a job since its been two years and u couldnt fix OnePlus 5 post image processing and now its OnePlus 6 with even WORSE image processing than earlier. i am sure OnePlus 6T will carry the legacy coz of unqualified guys like you.
    hell leave post image processing you couldn't tune in the simplest thing of decreasing saturation....every single reviewer and photographer reviewing camera of OnePlus 6 in initial stages complained about it. time went on and its even worse with additional oil painting effect and increased noisiness.
    talking about gallery : Featureless and way too simple. i reported a bug 6 months ago of pictures being randomly stretched. team reported will be fixed in next update. 6 months and 6 updates have passed and still same useless buggy gallery.
    I don't know what kind of apporach u applied or reservation you had for this job but you suck at your job. Recruitment team is equally stupid i guess

    Personal: Are you enjoy taking pictures with your OnePlus devices ?
    Technical: Is there any improvements on OnePlus 6 camera in the future? OP6 can be better XD

    There's a significant shutter lag when pressing the shutter button and when it actually takes a pic. I reported this via feedback a few months ago but the issue still persists.

    Side note, I've tried the Pixel 3's Camera apk port for OnePlus 6 and it takes significantly better photos than by using stock. Best thing is that is no shutter lag! This can only mean that software on the pixels in terms of image processing is still far more superior than the one found in OxygenOS, obviously. So my question is will we see a shift in focus on image processing in the future? Especially when we're living in a world where a phone with one camera can easily beat any phone with two or more via incredible software.

    Thanks to the software team for all the hard work to get Pie running on OnePlus 6. You guys are amazing!

    Hi @Jimmy Z.
    1)Why editing of slow motion videos is not possible through gallery app, what changes we except in the future updates of Gallery app.

    2) Do you have Pixel or iPhone in personal to compare things for mobile photography and which DSLR camera you own if any...

    I just have a question that's related to work!
    Is there any way you could try to improve slow motion on 5/5T because 720p @120fps is really not very helpful. The SD835 definitely supports better slow-mo videos so it would be great if you could add upto 240fps. Also are there gonna be any improvements to panorama mode as currently it is nearly of no use?

    1. How you see the development concept of the oneplus camera?
    2. Is it possible to type people enthusiasts for example from the forum oneplus who would share information with you by testing the camera in auto mode vs pro , which settings from about can be transferred to auto mode for the best quality?

    That has nothing to do with the made picture. WhatsApp compresses it..

    How OnePlus treats you?? :D

    Can you give us the opportunity to control the secondary camera manual?
    i think is quite unfair having hardware that we cannot control! I have the OP5, OP5T and i will buy the OP6T in 2 weeks ([e]1f60d[/e]) but what disturbs me is that, in manual mode i cannot choose the camera that it may perform better!
    Example: I like taking picture of nature (usually just before sunset) and a low light sensor will be much better because i can decrease the shutter speed or the ISO...... Also, with the OP5, i would like to have some "macro" but i cannot control the secondary camera..

    It is like buying a car and having an electric throttle! Yes i know it can have work arounds through rooting but why not having that opportunity natively? OnePlus is not the cheap company anymore and software features usually do not cost too much!

    Hello @Jimmy Z. :

    Question One.

    How did you feel at hamburg camera event, when we confrontated you with all the critics and issues and our different view regarding "Beauty mode" and image processing? Since @Dunnow and i went directly at the point without diplomatic phrases.

    Question two:

    At Hamburg camera event we asked about a lot of changes / feautures. Some of them are implemented right now,which is really great, some others not. Some of the not implemented features have been asked in this thread before,i hope they ll get answered. At all we always asked ( and will ask) about more control to achieve better image quality. Are there any plans for a better interaction with interested Users, for example a kind of open / closed beta group which is aimed to get a better camera experience?

    Right now we can only send some feedback here in the community, but there s no dedicated place to discuss (and TEST !!! ) new functions regarding camera optimisation. Here you ll find a lot of interested and talented / skilled photographers who surely will inspire your team ,since we all want to get the way best possible pictures out of the Camera s hardware.
    Using this resources would help a lot in my opinion.

    Personal Q
    What is your favorite Image Editing App?

    Why can't the default image be 16:9 instead of it being a cropped in image as available right now?

    Hallo @Jimmy Z.,

    thank you for your Part in 'Ask our Software Team' Round!

    - First Pics I'm taking with new Smartphones always are like this
    to get a feeling for the shortest focus distance cause i like 'macro'....but I've recognized that when I use ProMode with preselectet macro-focus in shortest distance and use the phone-screen moving the Phone forward and back for getting the right focus there is a dismatch between 'screen-sharp' and 'picture-sharp' (Auto-Mode is no Option cause there are only a few mm for the 'right' focus) ... I'm puzzled. o_O
    Is this a solveble issue? That would be great!

    this i an egg of Chrysoperla carnea

    OP5T stock cam & Snapseed

    Edit: unfortunately I couldn't attend Open Ears Forum in HH ... but a 'handfull forum buddies and photo enthusiasts' are in close contact here in the forum and some also private, so I support @otto2 suggestions and of course the UI Interpretation of @hennes :)
