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”.

Some times when in class the teacher will write stuff on the board and its just quicker to take a photo and go. You can do this on OneNote for iPhone, I still don't understand why you cannot for the Surface pro 3.
This is would be a great feature, especially for the Surface and other tablets. Also makes scanning old notes easier.

Currently you can take audio or video directly in to OneNote but you can not access the webcam for pictures. Pictures can only be inserted from a file. Please allow access to the camera for the purposes of inserting a picture directly in to Onenote
Right now we can only take pictures from the camera using the RT version. Please add this feature to the desktop one, too.
