    There doesn't appear to be an option to set the location for saved photographs to go to. Why would such a basic feature be missing from the settings?

    Do you have the option to save the location when you take photos?

    I'm not interested in the option of saving GPS meta data, I'm interested in an option to choose which folder my images are stored in.

    What i mean is that there is no option like that at all. You are either going to have to root the device or contact Google. Cause im pretty sure this is an Android feature for a long time. by default for pre installed camera apps its going to install in the DCIM folder all the time. You may be able to find a 3rd party app that will allow you do it but you cant with the default.

    OpenCamera app has the option to set the saved file location so I don't see why OnePlus can't do the same. I don't understand why they advertise their fancy camera on their phones when the included camera app doesn't have basic features. If I use the OpenCamera app then I can't use the 2X zoom camera of the OnePlus 5.

    Ok then i honestly dont really care, you asked the question, i have given you the answer. If you want this feature then go and complain in the appropriate place, FYI this aint it!

    OpenCamera is just that, an open source camera app where these features are implemented, and more than likely done even use the stock camera api which gives it its limitations.
    But the OP stock camera is based off of Google software where it uses the camera of the phone to its fullest potentials with again comes with limitations... There is no perfect camera application out there.
