Wouldn't it be stunning
I have a doubt, If anyone saw OnePlus One phone's camera capabilities, especially color reproduction and its HDR vs Z1.....
Can the software in it be ported to CM11 as Oneplus runs CM11!!
BIONZ is working, however in unlocked bootloader it does not work the same way it does with locked bootloader.
I insist there's a difference in picture quality. To prove it, I took a total of 12 shots. 6 shots of the same subject in a row in 15mp manual mode with 400ISO in UBL, and then I relocked my BL, restored my TA and took the same 6 shots again in the same conditions merely 10 minutes later.
I took 6 shots so that the 'random picture quality difference' is negated.
Here are the pictures. I can provide originals as well if people wish. I uploaded to imgur because it's easier for me.
Unlocked bootloader pictures
Locked bootloader pictures
At first glance, they look similar. HOWEVER, if you look into the dark part of the images, you will notice something different in UBL compared to LB. There is a lot more 'digital noise' present in ULB pictures. What I'm talking about is random green/red pixels in the dark area that the BIONZ processor (or whatever else) removes in locked bootloader state.
Left is LB, right is UBL. You can notice the difference immediately in the blacks of my PS3. There is noise present in the UBL part that is NOT present in the LB part. Picture quality is NOT compromised, both are about equal sharpness, however LB looks considerably better because of the lack of 'digital noise'.
Again you can see a greenish hue on my heater with some of that noise that is not present on the left LB picture.
Look at the blacks of my HP box. Again there is that random green/red noise on the UBL pictures that isn't present in the LB picture. LB picture is also slightly sharper but that could be a coincidence.
This isn't a one time occurrence.. This 'digital noise' exists in ALL of the 6 UBL shots I took, and it is NOT present in my LB shots. In daylight the difference is negligible, but in low light the difference is evident. That noise reduction that occurs, whether it be through BIONZ or whatever else, is not present in UBL shots. This results in lower picture quality especially in low light. I don't know what is removed, but there is a definite difference between the two.
