    The camera on this phone is shit anyways, not much you can do to improve it.

    Version 2.0.002? Interesting. The version I used was Version 2.0.004 which, apparently, is the latest version. Did the camera app allow 4K recording? Was there a 'slow shutter' feature? Slow shutter seemed to be missing from CameraNext and CameraNext Modded, which is a giant disappointment.

    As for loss of quality - I'm an average photographer of four years, so I used my experience to evaluate whether there has been a loss of quality. It was pretty easy for me to see, but I just wanted to be sure hence why I posted it. If you look carefully, the images just seem much more noisy than they should be.

    I'll give the version you had a try once I get home. Thanks for your post!

    I'd have to disagree. For a smartphone, it's quite decent.

    Yeah I've noticed it too... The photo quality on oxygen os or any other custom roms (including cm11 nightlies) were significantly low compared to 11s.
    Tried various camera apps and still no use...
    There were too many noice and the overall picture quality was not so satisfying.

    Did your images turn out the same way mine did - extremely noisy and blurry? It's really upsetting however I know the PA team will sort this out in the next update! :)

    I'm running CM12-20150409 at the moment: Very Stable - No issues that I've experienced....

    Can anyone tell me if they are having trouble using HDR mode in any camera? I cannot tap to focus at all with HDR mode enabled. It doesn't matter if it is the Google Camera, CM camera or even Open Camera from the Play Store. Tap to focus does not work.

    Either I am going blind in my old age(30) or everyone is an epic picture snob because the quality on all of those pictures look exactly the same to me...

    Yes, I have the exact same problem. I have to switch to Auto to be able to focus.

    There's definitely a difference shoynn, especially when you zoom in. It's a real shame.

    Have you seen any fix on that yet? I hate not being able to focus correctly inside of any camera app. >_<

    No fix as of yet, but overall the camera quality loss along with its bugs is really beginning to, no pun intended, bug me. I'm still at the stage of deciding whether to head back to CM11s or wait it out with Oxygen. I love OxygenOS to bits. It's perfect, minus the camera quality problem. I can't carry my DSLR everywhere, and the OPO camera is a perfect temporary replacement capable of capturing what I need and more.

    Urgh. :(

    If and only someone could come out with a better camera, I'd be happy too. But still OxyOS is still at its infancy, so I might switch to Cyanogen until OxyOS matures.

    I've just flashed CM12 Nightly, so I'm back on that. Tomorrow, when the sun arises, I'll take some pictures and update this post. I'm so sad to have to go back to CM, but I swear as soon as Oxygen improves... I'm heading right back faster than you can say Carl Pei.

    Taking pictures, for me, is a massive part. Believe me, I sat there for hours debating on whether I should go back to CM. OxygenOS, as I keep reinforcing, was absolutely perfect for me. People don't give it the time of day unfortunately, and that saddens me deeply.
