    are you completely unaware of the oil painting effect

    if you zoom in enough, sure things start to look wierd!!!!!! what are you guys expecting??? Its called pixel peeping. photos are not meant to be be zoomed in too much as there is not enough resolution. Welcome to the digital world. This is why optical zoom is better than digital zoom. Why are people struggling to understand this fundamental concept I wonder.

    I don't think there is any oil painting effect at all on the samples I uploaded, I just provided identical images for people to compare

    After getting 5.1.9 os update i must tell you that there are no changes in images quality. It does not improve at all. I poke OP team multiple time that OP6 has great camera capability but somehow it doesn't express it. But it can be improved by ota software update.
    Still have focusing problem. It can't detect near by camera subject.
    Bad dynamic range.
    No improvement in portrait shot quality.
    In mode added in selfie like iphone 8 or x () it is strongly we want.
    It's good to see Google Lense.

    Oh, please. Get over yourself.
    1. If you were an actual photographer you wouldn't be using a smartphone to take photos.
    2. The camera is way better than necessary for such a mundane task.
    3. Most every iconic historic photo was taken with a less capable camera. If photography is important to you, spend some time on improving your skill instead of trying to fix the tool.
    4. You've seen people post OnePlus photos here on the forums and other social media sites. You know the camera takes great shots.
    5. The camera gives you the options to do whatever you want.
    6. You can switch to camera apps that perform different post processing. There are dozens. Find one that takes quick snaps that you like. Use it. That's the entire point of the Android ecosystem. No one is forcing you to use an app you don't like.

    For the last time,

    -resolution does not matter here. We are looking at PROCESSING ARTIFACTS.

    -I do not see any 'oil painting' in the images I posted. I posted these for people who just want to see a side by side. These images look perfect and identical to me.

    -I posted the full res images so why are you still running your mouth about low res?

    for moments like you mentioned. it’s always good to use at least a point and shoot camera. deciding to print a large photo later on will be better suited for the job.

    auto focus on the oneplus 6 is not the greatest. but more of a convenience.

    regarding autofocus, go read the DXOMark report. So either your phone is faulty or you need to learn how to work it

    maybe I should me more specific in what I mean..

    I just don't get how sub pixel-level comparison is useful...?


    what does it matter how the cropped area looks like, if the overall impression is good..?

    oil painting effect or not...

    No one is giving the answer about the tread... Has the image quality with new update improved or not? Simply question
