    Nightscape is our pick because it’s a feature that represents the thought processes behind the OnePlus camera very well. Night scenes have always been hard for our users to shoot. Solving this pain point was the biggest motivation for us to develop Nightscape. We want our users to take pictures of the great things they encounter with ease. All our thoughts and efforts as team revolve around this theme - how to make it easy for users to take good photos.

    So far, only a handful of mobile device cameras can deliver good night scenes. In this sense, Nightscape adds to a refreshing camera experience for smartphone users. They don’t need to worry about insufficient exposure or too much noise. Thus, the value of this feature is not comparable to any other camera feature we’ve worked on.

    On a technical level, Nightscape is also memorable for us because it pushed us to new levels in our development techniques. With night scenes, there are countless unfavorable factors such as cluttered lights, complex environments etc. We had to overcome a web of problems one by one, by continuously optimizing algorithms for exposure, anti-shake, and multi-frame synthesis. If you want to read some stories we sharedabout the development of Nightscape, see @Gary C. ’s post [HERE]. Technical difficulty was indeed unprecedented.

    Debugging night scenes was actually a painful process. Every day, we need to repeat the process of “shooting proofs – analyzing problems – optimizing effects”. Our work often ran late into the night. Special thanks to Becker, our algorithm engineer and Osborn, our testing engineer for their hard work.

    This is great...
    And after looking at the reviews by all the 6T testers, we do know that NightScape is a nice add on feature...
    But let previous phone owners enjoy such features as well... :(

    The nightscape might be the hardest feature you rolled out, I'm not going to argue that.
    But to be honest, for me, the best feature in the camera is the pro mode! The range it has, I think very few OEMs provide it. It let's me use the camera to it's full potential.

    Nightscape is still far from perfect. I've seen the ghosts of your issues with it. (See middle right of the photo below)

    Meanwhile, Pro Mode lets us get photos just right. I feel like Nightscape is really meant for times when you just want to see something in a dark room. Not when you want a great photo worth sharing.. well, unless ghosts or overly bright lights is your thing.

    Yes, Indeed. Your Nightscape Mode is getting better. Please Don t stop working on it, there 's still room for improvement. Personally I like your approach more than Google s, Nightscape pictures by Oneplus are looking more realistic and less synthetic. Greetings to Becker too, appreciate your hard work.

    Caution : 5t users will be commenting soon.
    To be honest I am not unhappy with nightscape. Its a new feature. Its not perfect but also consider that its initial build. Over the time it will improve. May be some day, companies will ditch the led flash light:tearsofjoy:
