script, May 31, 2018 : cover photo (op6) taken by @otto2 from here Hi and hello, This is our new monthly Shot on OnePlus thread, to hold all your best photos, videos and other media that were taken with your OnePlus phone, as a heir of our greatest Mega photography thread. Last month the OnePlus 6 has started. We have - again - something really good: the Lab. Well known forum members and human beings have written honest reviews. You can find them here: The Lab - Reviews, collected by @Crystal Z. Its a lot of information, very useful. Together with @woSch, @hennes and @K3MN1K we thought, without particular order, these reviews are giving a good overview: OnePlus 6 for dummies, the Traveler's Review, Dunnow's review, and the great @NeVeR_SeTTLe, who´s profound camera review will be published hopefully Friday. Here is an extra index post to all the chapters. It's a jewel! Thx Dom [The Lab] NeVeR SeTTLe's OnePlus 6 Review @woSch found one sentence that sums it all up, from Sachint Goel ... review: 'And I can kinda understand why OnePlus algorithm favors this. With a higher ISO, they can keep the shutter speed pretty fast. After all this is ‘The Speed You Need’ camera, it should be fast. But in pursue of that speed, you end up losing a good amount of detail.' The picture magician woSch also made this: [Invites Reloaded] , a comparison of similar pics, taken with the op3T and the op5T, always in standard auto settings. All the pics are great, but the pics from the 5 are not greater than the pics from the 3. We will, as soon as I get my op6, meet (we live only in 30 km distance) and do a shoot out with the 6, and the older models. That will be interesting, esp. when I get the 6 in a few weeks and it has already gotten some updates. That brings me to the next point: the software. Always in the past the OnePlus phones have had a good camera software when they were released, and after a while and some updates, the picture quality improved a lot. After I have seen many pics from the 6 already in London and at the Euro tour, plus in the Lab reviews, I am more than happy about the awesome quality of the pics at this early stage. Don´t get me wrong: Its still not supergreat perfect. But its very very good right from the start, and I am sure, that in a few weeks, and after the feedback from us, the developers will improve the quality again. Also, the new tweaks will reach older phones as soon as possible. I don´t know when. Maybe July? Last point for today: the hardware. I am not a technician and not a software developer, I work for the german televison in a camera team, and I (sometimes) produce and film rock video clips. From that background I can say, that, besides sensor and software, a good lens makes the picture. In the past years (my NIKON SLR camera is broken) I took my personal pics and portraits mostly with mobile phones. Sometimes they were ok, sometimes even good. Snapshots. What I never really loved was/ is the wide-angle distortion of the phone lenses, esp. in portraits. Its easier to get sharp pictures with those, but the result is not the best possible. What I would love in a phone is a true telephoto lens as the secondary camera. With that you could get portraits without sw-tweaking, a bokeh without being an effect. I certainly hope that OnePlus will think about adding a telelens to one of the next phones. Yes, the camera bump is a problem. Thankfully I am also not a designer.... A colleague took a portrait of me with his DSLR last week. I posted it in the DSLR-thread from @rarog. There you can see what bokeh and portrait means. A phone will always remain a phone, with a snapshot camera. Recent OnePlus phones have already a very good camera now, and will get an extremely good camera when the development of hard and software continues. They gave us OIS, a bigger sensor, we had the camera meeting in Hamburg earlier this year, and this Hamburg group is still talking and discussing about camera development with the OnePlus developers and engineers. I know they do what they can to optimize the camera. Ready to go? Great! Share your best work with us, and let us know which phone was used and camera settings or filters used as it may help our friends on the forum. (ex. OnePlus 5T Stock camera - HDR, OnePlus One - Camera FV5 - iso 100 - 1/6 shutter) If you are a Community app user, please note that the app will automatically resize your photo. If you are a Community website user, please note that file sizes may be to large to post as size is limited to 2mb in which case you'll have to shrink your image size. Photo & Picture Resizer and Snapseed both are great apps from play store to resize photos. Check here to learn more about How to upload photos. Alright, we're good to go. Can't wait to see your best shots! Cheers, script Notice: Please note that single photo threads opened elsewhere on the forum will be merged with this thread.
