Does anyone have the 10-bit HEIC (aka HEIF) files working on Windows 10? I can view the pictures on the phone just fine, but Windows refuses to display them. They do display fine on my Mac but not on Windows 10.

And yes, I have the HEIF Image Extensions loaded. And tried reinstalling them, and resetting them. But not joy :-(

Is it just me? Or do others have this working?

(BTW 8-bit HEIC files work just fine)

Sorry for the bump but please guys help me out here. Can someone enable 10-bit images and see if they can view them on their Windows 10 PC? This takes 2 minutes to test.

I'd be grateful.
 
It took a bit more than 2 minutes as sharing the pic to Telegram auto-converted it to JPEG! Same if I did that from the File Explorer.

Sent by email, tried to open with Paint.Net -> no-go.
Then Microsoft Photos, which asked to to install the HEIF extension from the Store.

Didn't work :(

There is a free HEIC Image Viewer on that same store though.

Thanks folks for your help here.

I cannot get it to work on Windows either. Same

Kick off some pictures. Only rules are X3Pro only and straight from the camera.
Does anybody have the 10-bit HEIC (aka HEIF) files running on home windows 10? I can view the pics on the phone just high-quality, however windows refuses to show them. They do show quality on my Mac but not on windows 10.

Is it simply me? Or do others have this operating?

Same. Seems the OPPO interpretation of HEIC / HEIF is not the same as Microsoft's. Which is quite a shame!

I also note that since the last update, Google Photos will no longer sync these images. It now says "device only" when you view them on the phone :-( So not only do they not display on Windows, now they don't even sync over.

I do hope OPPO fix this. It was one of the main reasons I bought the phone. Being able to view photos on the phone only in 10-bit is a fat lot of use.

I note that since the last update (11 A 21), the phone will again sync HEIC files in Google Photos and windows can now open them... provided they are 8 bit. Windows can still not open 10-bit HEIC files from the Find X3 Pro, even though Macs can do so.

So this frustrating restriction still remains. One of the key selling points of the phone - 10-bit end to end workflows - is still unavailable MONTHS after launch. I do hope they fix this because otherwise all of the pre-launch marketing material was basically a lie.

Have u tried installing heic/heif plugin from MS Store? On my laptop with windows 10 I can display HEIC 10bit photos. On my desktop I cannot (no heic plugin)

OPPO Find X3 Pro
Hello,
Looking at posted photos I understood my mobile HW is not defective. The camera SW of Oppo Find X3 pro is quite a disappointment.
In my opinion pictures taken in sunny days are dramatically over saturated and over exposed. Person skin seems made of plastic and vegetation colours quite unnatural.
In cloudy days results improve, but photos are almost always over exposed. It seems SW applies a beauty filter to faces, even if this function is turned off.
With GCam the pics are much better! Unfortunately we lose all aux lenses...
I'm really disappointed. I find unbelievable, no YouTuber ever pointed out this issue during their reviews.
Does someone have suggestions to mitigate the problem with stock cam or can suggest alternative can which can use all available lenses (no root)?

The Blue t-short of my son is almost white, the sunny areas have no details.
lights in the background of the kinder seat are completely over exposed.

To be fair the EV range on those 2 shots is enormous and the camera is faced with either under-exposing the shadows or clipping the highlights. It's chosen the latter, which honest I would expect many point and shoot cameras would do. When I got my first DSLR many years ago I thought it was under-exposing everything (which it was) but it was merely protecting the highlights, which I had not been used to with P&S cameras I used previously.

The Find X3 Pro is probably erring on the side of over-exposure because with a tiny sensor, you need to feed it with as much light as possible in order to keep the noise levels down. It's a design decision and an understandable one IMO.

At the end of the day, all you had to do with these shots was dial in a bit of -ve exposure compensation.

Firstly you dont know how other phones would capture this scene...maybe even worse.

Im mostly happy with the camera but im not a Pro. Sometimes I take shots with HDR on/auto or with AI on/off which makes huge differences.

You can check out my samples on gdrive: gdrive
Not every pic is perfect but it will give you maybe some comparison with your results.
