    This is the Thread I am creating with poll please vote if you are Oneplus 8 pro user. To Vote, you need to open this thread in the browser only.

    There are so many peoples in the world who just post content to earn money because of that a phone Company cannot do wrong with buyers for what they ask the cost for!
    Nothing you will get by blaming such publicity peoples because to change things it is on the manufacturer's hand.
    Youtubers just need money from Adsense!

    What do you want more Oneplus? Check the total votes and give us the feature back! Don't stay silence you will lose all of your customers for this fake update against Photochrom.
    Refund 30% cost

    Have you ever seen someone's body inside really in any video? then the company must not ban such features as they can easily submit and file a claim and ask evidence.
    It only works on special equipment and conditions.
    For IR camera I have no motive to see someone with x-ray camera but if you browse oneplus website the images of nature's and moreover in the community posted are very nice and that feature is not present in any phone currently in the market.
    And yes what is advertised, peoples paid for it but when it was enabled and even they can disable whatever they want but results of images should be like the original what is advertised everywhere but currently it's not!
    Oneplus should bring back original photography! I also attached images old and new color filter samples please have a look.
    And yes I brought the phone only for this unique feature to take such pictures as I am a photographer!
    I had many good options in the same price segment before.
    I knew it before that camera is blocked but confirmed with the support that they will bring it back then only I brought the phone but what came in updates is a cheat. For that people only doing complaints here.
    Please make many votes as much as need to get back the feature.

    Fresh Updates!

    14th August 2020
    Oneplus / China is a shameless peoples why?
    Even after watching votes in poll rather than enabling photochrom fully, they launched new updates 10.5.13 with words that it will improve your camera but when I installed this I lost the factory mode app locked in recent apps to browse the original color filter camera 4th camera !
    And you can try again the same process to get it back but failed it never come back!

    This tells how scammers oneplus can be china bulshit fraud company.

    This is my final phone of oneplus and I will never buy again any phone from this scam company. These chinese scammers are very bad.


    Please find some latest images shared by a user with old camera and let me know if you see x-ray vision really!

    I probably (almost) will never use it, but this way of dealing with customers though...

    I don't give two rats-a$$ about it... they should try to get that camera to do something more useful.

    Being an old timer professional photographer. their implementation of this IR film/effect isn't even close to the real thing. completely pointless.

    Careful now you will upset the children [e]1f602[/e]. I totally agree with you, a pointless gimmick that looks nothing like it should yet this lot seem to think it is the best thing out there.

    You might have an opinion or referense of how a photochrom should look? The best info I have found is the Wikipedia article about photochrom. I can only assume that the filter photochrom is inteended to look like a colorised black and white.
    Depending on brightness it's pretty far away from that definition though. If the intension is to look colorised why wash some colors out completely in bright sun light.

    I am an engineer who works with infrared lights all the time for industrial automation work. Part of the reason I bought the phone was to have a pocket infrared camera. This change is really disappointing to me, and it's frustrating that my phone now is now less useful than when I bought it. I don't want to "settle" for less functionality.

    In the 1890s, a new printing process was invented to infuse color into the black and white capabilities of early photography. The process called "photochrom" or photochrome did not record color, but rather was a photographic offshoot of chromolithography, transferring color on prints made from black and white negatives. The Library of Congress has a large collection of nearly 6500 digitized photochrom prints.

    If you want samples.. Library of Congress have tons of them to look at.

    Sure, but that doesn't change the fact that the phone is now less useful to me than when it was released. If OnePlus wants to add a different filter mode, they should just add another filter instead of removing functionality that was already there.

    Thank the idiots that were trying to look through apple remotes and thin clothing for that being removed.

    Then we are on the same page.
    It's pretty far from that indeed. In best case it can look like a faded photochrom.
    While effects like this can look cool I don't see the the photochrom resemblance in it.
