    Hi everyone,

    Earlier this month, on December 8, we hosted an Open Ears Forum fully dedicated to Videography, close to New York’s Chinatown. To gather the most comprehensive feedback possible, we invited OnePlus users with varying degrees of knowledge, from novice users that point and shoot to mobile photographers that use smartphones as a work tool. We also invited two Moment lens users to give a different perspective, as well as the Italian filmmaker, and good friend of OnePlus, Giacomo Mantovani (you may know him from here).


    Joining from the OnePlus Camera team were @Jimmy Z. and I, Camera Product Managers, Aravind J., Strategist Planning Analyst and Simon H., Camera Algorithm Engineer. Throughout the day, other people from OnePlus joined - @Pete, @Carl, @David Y., @Amanda W., @Ruby G. and @dsmonteiro are the names that you may know from the forums, but many others joined to hear what these users had to share.


    The discussion was set around two major topics: Challenges, and Solutions for those challenges. The participants and OnePlus staff were divided into three groups so that each one of them could explore different ideas. The feedback and suggestions we received from working together will help us immensely to improve in the future, for amateur and professional users alike.

    After working hard on finding ways to improve your videography journey, we invited all participants, user and staff alike, as well as some additional core users from NYC to a Year-end Meetup where everyone was able to hang out, enjoy some food and drinks and start celebrating the spirit of the holiday season.


    After the OEF, Simon H. told us that, even though it was his first time attending an event like this, he had learned so much and proposed to hold an internal workshop to discuss the insights provided by the attendees. Kinder, the VP of R&D, It immediately said yes and now we will hold a 2-day workshop, with more than 20 technical members to go through all this feedback.

    As a result, this Thursday and Friday, we will have a follow-up workshop inside product department, to better digest and map out solutions based on the feedback we collected from the OEF. We will share more info after the workshop.

    Never Settle.

    As an artist, I keep filming a number of videos for my Instagram. I think the video formats should be available in 1:1 aspect ratios along with 9:16 .
    And as a photographer, I would be happier if the auto focus is improved.

    Never settle! let's better ourselves!
