    It's more than a hardware based Instagram filter. As far as I know there is no possibility to simply apply a filter and get results like you get with the camera.

    The ability to shoot IR photos with your smartphone is a cool and unique feature.
    Some people take serious efforts to do infrared photography so it's super nice to have a build in solution.

    I myself would normally never apply some sort of filter on my photos but I like shooting with the IR cam since I discovered it. I absolutely love the dystopian look of the photos and I would be seriously pissed off, when they make changes which will limit the ability of making infrared photos.

    This whole privacy concern thing has assumed crazy proportions. I tried the cam at my wife wearing thin clothing and it was not nearly possible to see through and get even a hint of her private parts.

    OnePlus, please don't let clickbait articles and superficial utterances on social media influence your decisions!

    Well, seems like it is influencing OnePlus. Or rather, OnePlus is getting influenced?!

    OnePlus proudly announce the 8PT (Peeping Tom) Edition. Coming with a 100,000mah battery, you can power your house or jump start your car. Armed with an x-ray scanner and explosives detector, using your phone has never been so much fun. The main camera can now take shots of the Andromeda galaxy with funny colour filters. We have also included a 50,000 volt tazer feature on the frame just in case an unauthorised person steals your phone and the selfie cam contains a minute hole that squirts out pepper spray. All in all, this is a loaded handset.

    thats not fair, i bought oneplus 8 pro for reason to use this filter for ”scanning" electronic devices...
    very disappointed from OnePlus that decided to take off this feature,i think its will be my first and my last one plus product...

    Useful or not...
    I've been asking for a photographers phone for who knows long...
    Not what I expected, but surprisingly a feature that stands out, with a lot of potential...

    Hope OnePlus steps it up a notch in future phones with higher resolution and even now with more and better filter looks that mimic Pro IR photography to date...

    It's temporary disabled in China and will probably be tweaked slightly in the rest of the world (I wonder how though) ...
    Everyone I have asked about some proof of the harm this camera can do never returnes to me... Either they can't find the proof or there is no real proof. Just dumb examples that people think is the same thing as real clothing situations or fakes and pictures from other devices.

    The hardware is still there. So even with it "disabled", I'm sure there will be some way to still use it. There's probably also the people who just won't update if they are really intent to keep using it.

    Just leave it alone, strange to have that as part of the features only to be stripped away.

    Tested on my own clothes black - just show up as baige (similar to skin-tone) Plus only under specific circumstances then it will appear "see-through" .

    (for censorship gonna mention the circumstances for it to work)

    I recommend the community to just use it appropriately .
