OnePlus 10 Pro Long Exposure lets me take some really wild photos

I can draw with light.

A few days after receiving the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G, a solid if not quite exciting Android smartphone that offers Pro-level features at a flagship price, I started digging into the features of the camera app.

I’ve long been a fan of OnePlus and its big camera swings. It was the first smartphone I ever used, for example, to offer macro photography. I loved taking close-up photos of the interiors of flowers, insects and water drops. Not everyone liked it, however, and the OnePlus 10 Pro doesn’t include a macro camera. It has a long exposure though.

Most smartphones now offer some form of night photography or long exposure settings after Google started the trend in 2018 with Night Sight on its Pixel 3. The wide variety of long exposure night shooting options today includes presets and sometimes some level of control. to extend the exposure (more if you put the phone on a tripod).
