    Oneplus should add a feature to switch between the primary and the secondary camera manually instead of activating the secondary camera below 10 lux.

    Taken with the secondary camera:

    secondary camera is obviously better, I generally take pics by blocking primary camera with my finger, so it switch to sec cam [e]1f602[/e][e]1f602[/e]

    I do the same too. would be a lot better if switching cameras manually was a feature.

    because in some conditions the 16mp camera takes better photos

    omg never thought of that!
    tries it....ummm, it keeps switching back and forth if I do that!

    I agree! we need a dedicated low light switch in pro mode at least!

    ok tried it, though didn't like the results, it looked like it was struggling to adjust and so the shots taken via this blocking method aren't as clear.

    1. forced secondary cam:

    2. Auto mode (main cam)

    3. manual mode, shutter 1/5 seconds, iso 640

    I think the manual looks best (although over exposed, so could drop down iso further), followed closely by the auto mode (slightly more noise due to higher iso and lower shutter speed), and the low light camera is struggling to show details
    maybe it really is only optimized for extreme low light as there it shows its potential.

    3. manual (1/4, ISO 250)

    notice how only on the manual mode you could read the guitar brand on the label inside.

    Edit: forgot about image compression here! you cant read the label on here, but trust me, in the original picture I have, you can (on the manual mode).
