You can take 50MP pictures with your non-rooted OnePlus One, here's how
While we are waiting for OnePlus to release its Oxygen OS for its sole (for now) champion, the OnePlus One community has certainly not remained idle while it's waiting for the OnePlus 2. If you have not substituted CyanogenMod 11S for one of the numerous third-party ROMs available for the OnePlus One, then you can easily snap 50MP pictures with your device. That's right, you read that correctly. What's even better is that you don't need root access in order to accomplish this.

How to do this, exactly? It seems that the camera app from Oppo's ColorOS has been successfully ported to CyanogenMod 11S. This particular app allows users to take photos of up to 50MP in size thanks to an image interpolation technology. This feature was among the more head-turning camera features that debuted on a number of Oppo devices, like the Oppo Find 7/ Find 7a

The process of installing the ColorOS camera on the OnePlus One is pretty simple and straightforward - just install the app, then install certain plugins, and you're good to go! Among the other noteworthy features of this camera app are: "working 4K recording with pause/resume support, HDR Recording, SlowMotion recording, saturation, burst mode, ISO settings, etc".

If you want to flash the ColorOS camera on your device, head to the source link for further instructions.

somehow i get the feeling that you do not have to spend time connecting the dots on this one.

True. I own the 7a and with this you just take like a normal picture. Only good for still shoots though.

I installed this earlier today and think that the pictures with the color os cam pictures look worse than the stock cm11s cam. With the 50mp mode pics look about the same as stock auto mode but far worse than hdr+ on stock cam. Color is has a few nice features though professional mode adds controls in viewfinder and in slow shutter you can adjust all the way up to 32secs I think stock is only 8. I'm very happy with my opo cam anyways so I doubt I'll ever use this much.

Several people on xda disagree and posted pics that looked great but I haven't had any good results. I also haven't messed with settings much.
