    When I'm clicking pictures using the camera through the Instagram app, the captured images are grainy and have a pink-ish/white-ish tone to them, like some filter.
    It looks as though there's a really bad beauty filter being used.
    This happens only while using Instagram camera and not on the phone's camera app.
    I'm also attaching the images for reference. (first Image instagram)

    PS: It was working fine a week back, suddenly it has started to act up
    I have tried clearing Cache, re-installing and re-starting my phone.

    Exactly same issue here. Only happens on my main account and not on my other accounts. Only happens when taking photo and not videos. Filters are OK.

    Tried everything, clear app & system cache, clear data, uninstall-reinstall etc.

    Running on 11.1.6.6

    Only happens with Instagram, other 3rd party cams are fine.

    And yes. Recently too. Both back and front camera.

    Blame instagram.
    It basically uses a something like a screenshot of the actual feed, instead of the direct feed from the camera. Hence the graininess and filtery look.

    hey,

    it's the compressing algorithm of Instagram.
    It is the same for WhatsApp, Facebook and other third party apps.
    Please use the camera for uploading and sharing pics

    Older version has no problems, but as a business, we need new IG feature.

    Because there are many OnePlus users who think, that app-related issues are issues of OnePlus and so they don’t contact the support of the app at first

    I am aware mate. But as I mentioned, nobody is reporting this exact issue on other forums. I've been searching for past 2 weeks and the last place I checked was oneplus forums.

    Instagram support 🤣 They have 0 support.
