    why don't you implement the Google Camera into OP phones?It takes way better pictures then the stock cam or at least optimize/ increase the quality of pictures from the stock camera app. Otherwise it's just wasted potential

    Please OnePlus improve the Selfie Camera on the 5t, Oil paint effect and and blurry photos all the way, the back camera is still better and for portrait it's shows unrealistic pictures, if these things could be solved then its no problem for me and your customers.

    @Jimmy Z. OnePlus delivers a very good camera experience, but some companies like HTC have licensed Google's camera software technogy found on the Pixel to deliver an amazing camera experience on their phones. It seems like OnePlus is forming a closer relationship with Google, so would licensing Google's software to take the OnePlus camera to the next level be something you guys and gals are interested in?

    Hi Jimmy Z.

    Are you aware of really bad post processing especially on front camera (OnePlus 6)? Photo is nice and sharp when making it but when you capture it it's blurry and face color is wrong (too pale and kind of white).

    Hope you are working on some software updates regarding this.

    Thanks for the opportunity. Cheers!

    Hi @Jimmy Z.

    I am using my OnePlus 6 to take videos from animals. Therefore I sometimes place my phone near the animal's food place and remote start the camera.

    Unfortunately the OnePlus app is not optimized for that.

    My question: could you please build a full functional remote control (hardware) for the video app, including the possibility to unlock the phone from sleep remotely?

    If you are considering this, please contact me,I have a few ideas what would be helpful.

    Edit: One idea is, to mirror the app completely to a second phone via Bluetooth. That even would only be a software development solution.

    Here is a nice clip I shot with a selfie stick. Usually the squirrels are shy and run away when I'm getting close. This squirrel was so young, he hadn't learned that already. At the end the OnePlus 6 was only 15 centimeters away from the squirrel. Have fun watching it.

    We met in Hamburg early this year,I would, like Otto and Dunnow, love to be in regular contact with you and the team (hello to Becker), and help to improve the camera app.

    Ah, personal question: have you seen the last shot on OnePlus September thread and seen my poll about adding 16/9 as one of the default options? 85% of the users who voted want to have 16/9 as additional option.

    What do you think about 16/9 as one of the standard formats?

    All the best, greetings from Cologne, Rüdi

    1. Carl Pei when the OP5 was launched told that the Camera Sensor are small that cannot fit the OIS. But how they're able to fit OIS in OnePlus 6 ? and also Better lens than OnePlus 5/T

    2. Sorry to Say, But the 2nd lens of 5T which is referred as Lens to capture good photos at Night, doesn't do Much difference. Sorry It's my opinion I didn't feel big change, infact OP6 without that lens does good Job !

    I am very curious person and like to ask Questions :)
    I know the struggle of the Camera improvement you Guys doing all Day ! and I appreciate That ! But removing OIS (OP5/T) & Telephoto for OnePlus 5T feels experimental to Me and not worth it.

    it would be nice if oneplus integrates properly focus on flat surface for especially taking pictures of documents or other notes or add an option integrated especially for that scenario .. very useful for students and business men's since most of one plus user are youngsters.. don't know about other oneplus phones but in oneplus 6 clicked pictures of such scenario are very blurry most of the time and should be reclicked .. and even so if it focuses at point there is blurryness on edges .. this makes the photo very unusable .. even low end smartphone do better than this ..don't only try to fix it .... plz fix it it's very handy feature for me for myself being a student..

    - What about the cropping of Videos?

    - Noise reduction in Videos and Photos?

    - Using the 2nd Rear camera for more AR and depth

    - Manual mode in Video?

    - More stabilization with OIS?

    - Improved Digital Zoom?

    - Softening of images taken with front Camera?

    Can we see less added shrapness and contrast in photos? The processing is a bit too agressive. Also the noise reduction is a bit too agressive also.

    video recording :
    Mode : 1080P 60FPS when you press 2x zoom video becomes blurry with jittery effect at the same time 2x zoom works fine with other modes its only in 1080@60FPS.
    Electronic image stabilization doesn't work properly videos is shaking when you move the phn around it is stabilised but a shaky one.

    what do you do for improving the whatsapp taken picture quality?​

    OnePlus ≠ WhatsApp
    OnePlus can't optimise WhatsApp as both are 2 different companies also the drastic compression is not exclusive to OnePlus devices hence blaming OnePlus for it would not be right!
    good day!
