Add "Take a Picture from Camera" functionality on OneNote
OneNote is a wonderful way of taking notes, including personal Notes. It's almost like a journal.
I'd love it if I could take photos of myself or others directly from my camera or web cam while making a personal entry in my notes.
Thank you in advance!
We are pleased to let you know that Inserting a Picture from Camera is already available. Thank you for all your comments and feedback in helping us make OneNote better for everyone to use. You can find this in the Insert ribbon tab under the Pictures menu with the button labelled “From Camera”.
Please read the following article for more information :
I have a surface pro 4 and 6. Both logged into my yearly renewing office 365 account. Both downloaded office and installed from the "download full version" however My 4 can import pictures through the camera, but the much newer 6 cannot. They seems to have different layouts too. Frustrating as heck Microsoft!
for for OSX coupled with iOS, it cannot work the same as with MS Word.
In word for OSX, the user is able to import from the camera of an iOS device. However this cannot be done using OneNote for osx
How to use the back facing camera instead of the front (selfie) camera to take a photo?
Please add to the PC version - in fact i think it used to have it. Feels very backward to take a photo, save it to folder and then have to navigate to the folder!

MICROSOFT: Please add this feature to the PC desktop version of OneNote2016. If you are really using user feedback to improve your products, this thread shows some pretty concise and specific feedback.
It only works in the app, not for the pc version

This is not good to deceive the people. It in not available on OneNote "Desktop" version, in any case, paid or free.
When people are claiming it is not available then they definitely asking about "Desktop" version, because otherwise it is obviously available and there is no need to ask these type of questions. Shame on Microsoft support they deliberately trying to deceive the people.
Indeed it's weird that my installed OneNote under paid version of Office365 is missing the feature of inserting pictures from camera. The demo video in your link shows a "Free" version of OneNote. It can't be found in the "Paid" version. Would appreciate for an explanation or ways to fix this handicap. Thanks.
My screen remains dark and the camera won't turn on for the "insert picture" in Onenote. I've gone through the privacy settings and everything. This is irritating.
Inserting picture from camera is NOT available for the OneNote 2016 Version of the Office Suite. I don't understand why this feature is available in the free OneNote Version and the one I pay for with my Office 365 doesn't have this included. Also the Mathematics Add-On is missing in the OneNote 2016 version. It seems like I'm paying to get less???!!!
I will add my voice to the fact that the option to insert from camera does not appear in OneNote 2016 (Desktop) on the PC, but it does show up in the OneNote app from the Windows Store. Can we integrate it into the 2016 desktop app as well please?

My Onenote on my android device has 'Picture' under the Insert tab and it is Grey'ed out. Saying this is complete shows what a total waste of time Microsoft tech support is. Instead of solving problems, they list things complete in order to clear their workload. It also indicates that Microsoft does not care, or they would be monitoring stuff like this.
can't find it in desktop version for Mac... strange, or isn't it?

As so many here have mentioned. Why is it that OS has a camera option in one note to take quick pictures yet the surface a Microsoft product has not. Is Microsoft not wanting to sell their products to students who is it in class?
Why there is no zoom option while inserting pictures from camera in oneNote? This feature is available in the iOS version of onenote! Just for this reason I don't use oneNote.
This is NOT completed; I cannot take a picture with my camera from OneNote. I can add a video, but not a picture. Crazy. I am using the "desktop" version of OneNote, but on a tablet (a DELL latitude 5825), so it would be really very very useful to have this ability.
the "from camera" button does not appear in my one note (2016)
add for onenote desktop!
Please add camera to onenote 2016 for surface tablet.
