OnePlus messed up.

  • Julkaistu 20.05.2020
  • The OnePlus 8 Pro comes fitted with a colour filter "X-Ray" camera, and its caused people privacy concerns and has been suspended in China - Whoops.

    The thing is you cant really look through clothing with the phone. There are many tests on youtube. Only when you have a thin shirt and something with big contrast under it. And the ir camera can do good to. It should for example be possible to spot spy cameras on toilets or hotelrooms easier.

    It's amazing how almost no one got that, they "turned off" the feature for "you". It's still there and in million devices. So, along with location, camera, voice sample, texts, searches and literally all info on you, Chinese government has a way to see through your most daily objects. And can click a perfectly decent photo even when you have put your phone in your pocket.
    Ahh privacy.

    Have you ever thought they made the camera and put it on their devices in a slick sly quiet way to push others to implement cameras like this on their devices too? But wait, the reason is for public to video and photograph things that may show things purposely that kay expose people, cops, governments? If you can take a photo that shows a person who did not have a gun under their clothes yet cops still beat them, thats a major device that everyone would want for safety. Your own camera could help spot potential lethal issues beofr eit happens 00

    Honestly, I've had zero interest in new phones UNTIL THIS. This is what the next generation of flagships SHOULD be! Who cares about an extra +0.3 megapixel camera, or a 2mm slimmer phone, or a complete edge-to-edge display? If I'm going to shell out that much money for a new phone (2x what I paid for my current phone), I want it to be able to do stuff my current phone can't possibly dream of. A phone that lets me see more of the electromagnetic spectrum? Yes please! I'm intrigued by the phones that have FLIR camera's built in them., and I'd also want a phone that can 3D scan my environment using the same tech Apple uses for Face ID.
    I think the privacy concern on this camera is overblown. You might be able to see through some shirts with it, but if the guy wasn't wearing a sign under his shirt would you even know you were seeing through it? A lot of women's clothing is slightly translucent or tight enough you can tell where a bra sits under normal conditions, I don't think this makes that meaningful of a difference in that regard.

    To be clear, any normal camera can see infrared light. Just like his example with the remote control at the beginning. This camera filters out NORMAL light to get only infrared light in the lens, or at least mostly. If you are walking around in the dark and a security camera see's you, it will see through your clothes if they are made of synthetic plastic fibers. This is because 1) there is no normal light for the sensor to pick up. and 2) the security camera has infrared LED's around the outside of it so that it isn't blinded when the lights go out. This camera is either accompanied with an IR light, or in the example with the plants is outdoors and the sun provides plenty of infrared light of its own.

    Nooooo! It's a camera feature. You can do this with cameras since the 90's . You can buy the equipment to make your cameras do it now. Every company is throwing crap at the wall at this point to see what sticks. That's all. The multimillion-dollar company didn't try to sneak the features through so 14 year old boys can see more boobies.
    And if you aim a car at people it does some pretty nasty shit! Should we update it and disable the gas pedal.
    And if you get new tech into enough hands you always find awesome uses for it that nobody planned for.

    I really like the look of infra-red photos to the extent I was considering converting an old DSLR to infra-red. Whilst a similar effect can be achieved via a filter, my DSLR has an IR cut filter which blocks most IR light and an IR filter blocks most visible light meaning daylight exposures would take about 11 minutes per shot. I was interested in this camera as it has no IR blocking filter, so exposure time is "normal". The only downside was the curved screen (didn't like it on the S7 edge I used to have). Looks like with Samsung's Camera glass protection spontaneously "popping" and OnePlus potentially removing the feature I want, I'll have to look at the Sony Xperia 1 ii or wait for the Galaxy Note :(

    It doesn't take expensive equipment to do infrared photography, but it does take more than putting a filter on a dslr. Dslrs have a filter on three sensor to block infrared light. You have to remove that, and then get a visible light filter to put on the lens for best results.

    Oneplus displayed the technology is now easily accessible, them disabling it will not put the genie back in the bottle. Other companies will adopt it of there is a market for it. once technologies exist and are known there is no going backwards.

    Wow, your understanding of this topic is just wrong enough to reinforce articles in the press and mislead the public.
    IR photography does not allow you to "see through" opaque objects but it many allow you to see through translucent objects. Here is a simple example. A beatuful woman is in your office wearing a light colored sundress. You both go out for lunch. While walking to your outdoor table the sun ends up behind her, ie it shines through her blush. The same is true of IR. We don't see the IR part of the spectrum but, on occasion we may feel it because IR is related to the generation of heat. If I photo in the visible spectrum you while wearing a black tee shirt I only see the black tee shirt. But the tee shirt is not is woven fabric. In IR, I see a shirt illuminated by the heat of your body. Any solid object under your shirt shows as a dark shadow because it is blocking the heat energy coming from your body. You showed a photo of a message written on paper under a shirt. Of course you might be able to see it. Compared to the shirt, the paper is opaque and the letters being written in marker fill in the microscopic spaces in the paper weave so as to make the darkened area of the letters even less likely to transmit IR energy. So, you see the faint surface of the paper and the fairly clear message written on it. All of this is as expected. As for the image of the remote, it is not truly opaque, but a translucent dark plastic. I would guarantee that you could shine a cheap laser light through it.
    They deactivated the camera for exactly the reason that formed the basis of this vid and the artickes you showed...everyone would misunderstand it and think you can see through things like clothes...creating privacy issues. Perception is hard to erase in the ignorant. As to anyone thinking this is too harsh...well...articles, and to a disturbing extent this vid, equate IR cameras with X-ray photography.

    I think it's very well planned out. I think they knew exactly what it does. But this is far from the first time we see ir cameras for consumers. Video cameras have been using a night vision mode with a ir led to illustrate the object. I think this is a try to make a buzz in the tech world. They knew exactly and know they play stupid about it. No way they didn't know. Remember the controversial airport nude body scan a few year ago. If they just add the feature and pretend like nothing they will get so much free publicity.

But if they advertise that they would get sued so they made it seem like an accident. But that’s not going to stop people from buying
