I used to have an iPhone and was using the app Everyday to take a photo every day, and did this for about 15 months. I'm now trying to do the same with my HTC One, but every time I take a photo with it, the image looks good in the post-shot preview, but when I go to the Gallery, there is a weird distortion going on, as if there's been a horizontal displacement somewhere in the middle of the photo.

Someone's going to say it's because I'm ugly, but apart from that, has anyone experienced anything like this?

Edit: I just wanted to say I tried downloading a different app - I just picked a random Top one off the App Store, Cymera - and the distortion is no longer present.

In another app I tried called 365 Photo App! the distortion was present just like it is in the regular camera/Gallery app. I don't know if this has to do with whether or not the apps use the built-in software, or their own for taking photos.
Can you post a sample of what you are talking about?

I noticed some distortion in this photo:
AndroidForums.com | HTC One - Post Your Photos - Post #59
I've seen one or two others with other distortion across the net.

Was that for real? I thought that was an effect filter or something...

No unfortunately it was not filtering, that was an actual shot taken with Zoe.

Ok, so from reading around the web and different posts regarding the best ways to use the camera, would these be considered a good rule of thumb to get the most out of general use:

1) Indoor shots - Use normal mode, no flash, tap screen to focus on your subject or subjects
2) Outdoor shots - Use HDR mode or backlight mode to reduce over exposure. Tap screen.
3) Although good in low light, try not to be in too low light or pictures will be blurry. Maybe to minimum of 3 candles in a room for example
4) Never use night mode unless it's below the previous example and keep the camera steady.
5) Use Zoe's or capture an image from a video to capture motion shots and reduce blur

Could someone chime in and let me know if this is a good enough list to follow to create the best pictures? Appreciate the feedback on this.

That's pretty much exactly what's happening with mine: a slight horizontal distortion that looks like the image has shifted. Unfortunately I didn't post a photo because it's a big fat photo of my face, and in images of landscapes it's either not there or not noticeable, unlike the photo in post 59.

Default Camera crashes constantly

Just bought my HTC One tonight and anything that uses the camera causes a crash. I can't get it to pop up and show the camera for even a second. Tried the default camera app and Facebook. I can't find anything on this issue with this phone. Anyone have anything? Tried a restart.

A hard restart might help. Press and hold down the power key for 10 seconds. You may see the capacitive buttons under the screen start to blink or a message come up with a countdown to reboot. This method forces the hardware and software to more fully restart.

You could also try restarting in Safe Mode. This will run your phone with all 3rd party applications disabled on a more clean configuration.

Boot into Safe Mode:
Ensure that Fast Boot is turned off in your Power Settings
Power the phone down and wait for it to be fully turned off for a minute or two
Power the phone back on
When you see the white HTC Boot screen immediately press and hold down the 'volume down' hardware key on the right side of the phone. Hold it until the phone completes start up, and you see the words "Safe Boot" displayed in the lower left corner of your lock/home screen.

To get out of Safe Mode simply power off and power on your phone as normal



If the camera doesn't work in Safe Mode then a back up and Factory Restore may be in order.
If a Factory Restore does not resolve, then there might be an underlying hardware failure.

Not sure if the factory restore will do much in this case?

Edit: got a replacement and problem solved.

Default Suggest basic settings for camera

I've had my One for about 4 days now and im still getting use to it. However, I need some help with this camera. IT SUCKS. Is there any settings or anything that I can do to make it better? I was outside in mid day (2pm) and most of my pics came out dark. Even with this flash on. I lovethe build quality of this phone and the specs, however, if there isn't a fix for this lousy camera I definitely have to take this phone back.

Have you checked the standard settings, white balance, scene mode etc? Also made sure HDR isn't on?

Try clearing the cache and data on the camera (Settings -> Apps -> All -> Camera -> Clear Cache/Data).

Does it take similar pictures with any 3rd Party apps?

El Presidente,

I tired playing with the settings etc. It made it a little better. However, not much. Also, I noticed wiht HDR on, it took better pics outside in the light.So im totally confused as to what's going on.

No 3rd Party Camera apps make a difference? Camera 360 etc? The pics are still too dark?

I like using the app "Perfectly clear" It does a great job of correcting for dark shots, etc.

Good tip!

If they're all dark regardless, even with another app, I'd take it in and check it.

No app or update ever fixes hardware with that lemony scent.

For outside bright shots I've found HDR must be the mode you use. Under "scene normal" mode the shots are just too dark. HDR seems to be only good under these conditions though. Otherwise the normal auto mode works great 90% of the time. Also, grabbing shots from a zoe works pretty well too! I never thought I would use the zoe feature much but it's great.

I don't know if this belongs here really, but it is camera related. I haven't done much with the camera and have only had the phone for a few weeks. Last night my wife was taking some video of fireworks. The screen was terribly laggy, like it was only showing every other frame. Playing back the video didn't look so bad, but still seemed kind of laggy. The only videos I had taken before we're in daylight. I know I can't expect great quality from night shots, but it acts like the cpu is having a hard time keeping up when doing night shots. Is what I was seeing normal for those conditions?

Probably due to confusion by the software for the auto adjustments in those conditions, worse if you had hdr recording on for that.

Presuming of course that it wasn't something idiosyncratic and your phone was busy managing something else unrelated at the time. Just covering the bases but I'd go with my first speculation.

I reduce the sharpening by one notch.

Can't decide on saturation - by default it's a bit over-saturated, but one step down is slightly too far.

If shooting in low light, remember that you must hold it as still as possible to avoid camera shake (and hence blurring).

Others have had theirs longer, so hopefully you'll get other suggestions. The ultrapixel and more discussion thread will have some people's preferences in it too.

Default pictures do not look right in low light levels

I've added a picture so you can see but there seems to be a lot of noise in it. I was focused on the hats and the room is only lit up by my tv. Even if I focus on the tv, the white balance, exposure seems to be off. I can fix it if I go into image adjustment but it should do it by itself when in default, right?

tap on the screen before you take the picture in the area you are trying to focus on. I am going to make a wild guess that the bright TV (especially if it is shifting from a bright scene to a dark one while taking the picture.) and the area of focus caused that level of noise.

I bet if that TV was off and you used the flash the picture would look great

It just seems to noise in the picture. The TV lights up a lot of the room just thought it would be a lot clearer.

But I still don't know if my camera is working properly. It seems to be over exposing everyting. I was in the park and took a picture of a bug, the grass is brown but in the picture it shows white. Everything is on default and the Sun was behind me.

This is going to look stupid but I took a picture of my food to best show you. The first picture is focused on the steak and the second is focused on the mash. The 1st picture is very over exposed, so much that you can make out any of the details of the mash. The 2nd is very dull.

I don't know if it's me or if I might have a faulty camera.

You might want to try to set the exposure to -1, trying HDR, or applying a custom filter after the picture is taken. Sometimes you just have to play around with the focal point to get the right saturation....

I spun this into it's own thread in the HTC One forum so other device owners can give you some advice.

PS to any staff, I looked for a related thread, but didn't find one. If there is one, please merge.

If there's no odd filter setting being used and the lens is clear of anything, you might have a defective unit. Try looking through your filter settings first.

Oh, and are you using the stock camera app, rooted or stock rom?

It just means that the pixels are larger than your typical phone camera's pixels (physically larger = more light captured per pixel).
Better for low light - a larger pixel collects more light.

It also means that you get fewer pixels in the same size sensor. There's a lot of discussion earlier in the thread about why the pixel count is not the most important factor in image quality, regardless of what a decade's simplistic marketing of digital cameras has consistently told people.

Hey guys, just got an update for my own HTC One on T-MOBILE and the option for HDR is completely gone. I used this feature a lot, does anyone know if there's still a way to access it or do I need to get an app now?

You should get an update for your update to fix this relatively soon:

OTA Update thread. Discussions/issues (All US carriers) Updated 5-26-14 **Major** Sense 6 update

If not,I'd try the GOOGLE SERVICES FRAMEWORK trick,wipe the cache partition in recovery,re-boot & see if it (the amended/add-on update) [4MB] doesn't pop-up.

Default T-MOBILE UPDATE REVISED (WHERE's My HDR MODE?)

I guess they're pushing the update out in two parts,instead of one revised update.

Got your update for your update pushed to your phone yet?

Default ZOE...

I have i seen somewhere that you can take the clip, and make a still shot of it for example a skateboarder jumping, where he appears multiple times in the same shot.... ive seen advertising shots... but wasnt sure if it was just photoshopped etc... any advice welcomed...

After you take the Zoe, it'll play through the 3 seconds. After it's done reviewing, you can tap the screen and drag the blue playhead bar to the frame you want and from there you can edit that single frame either way you want it. Pretty nifty, there are a ton of other features that I'm still exploring, even after a week of tinkering with it

So I need some help. I recently went to an iphone 5 from a S4 because I had a lot of trouble getting good pictures of my 11mo old son with the s4. It focused too slowly and overall had a hard time with a subject that wasnt perfectly lit and could sit still for several seconds. the iphone 5 was a big improvement and I am very satisfied with the camera performance, but there are sooooooo many other things that are annoying the crap out of me with this phone. I need an Android phone that is available on Verizon that has a camera that can keep up with the iphone taking quick snaps of a baby that rarely sits still. I'm hoping the one is that phone. please chime in if you take these kind of images and hopefully how it compares to an iphone if you have used one in the past.

Thanks

Default Lowering MP in camera. Possible?

Is it possible like every other phone I have owned to lower the MP setting in the camera. Example, I always set all my phones to capture in no more then 1 MP because the majority of my pictures just go quickly online for items I am selling. I do not want to wait for larger resolution pics to upload and/or re size them in another step.

Suggestions? I can't find the option in the camera.

This is a 2 day old Verizon ONE FYI.

Thanks in advance

Changing the "crop" option will give you a slightly smaller image (and a different aspect ratio).

Or, since this is Android, you can try another app. Camera JB+ has this, and I'm pretty sure the older Camera ICS (which has a free version) does too. So you could set one of them to your default small size, and use the normal camera if you want full resolution.

The picture quality comes out quite good as well doing this, even in low light. I was in a dark cigar bar for a friends birthday and you can even see the cigar smoke rising slowly over the course of the photo progression.

What's best is that Google+ will take sequential shots like this and convert them to an animated GIF, which is kinda cool.

Wow. You know, I didn't even think to lok for that feature way back when I first got the One. I just assumed it would be there. Like you said, it has existed on pretty much every phone I have had in the past decade. Surprisingly,I don't see any option for that on my Sprint One either. I mean, for me personally, it doesn't matter. I always set it to the highest available anyway, but I can see your point. I'm always annoyed when extra options are removed. I don't like being FORCED to do things a certain way.

The only option I have is to change the video quality, not the regular pictures.

The One doesn't have the option to change the picture size in the camera??

Example, 720x1280 would be about 1MP.
