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 :
Yes, please add this feature to OneNote 2013! Its crazy to have it in the Free App on the app store but not in the retail version. Perhaps for the desktop, add support for importing from webcam, that way, it'll be compatible with a wide variety of webcams (be it on Desktop PCs, or the front/rear one on 3-in-1s like the Surface Pro).

I agree. I like the desktop better than the app version. I use a tablet, so I want to be able to take pictures right there. Also, our students use OneNote and since some of them are under 13, they don't have a MS account and therefore no OneNote app.
OneNote can record video & audio so why not be able to take pictures straight from Camera.
Desperately missing this feature in the Desktop App as Anja Dillinger stated. BTW i'm the mentioned colleague ;-) so would be nice if you can offer it in a next release soon. Thanks!

this is a feature a colleague and I were missing dearly when going out to customers and trying to do a UX approach with the method contextual inquiry. Here it would be soooooo useful to take pictures directly from OneNote. right now we cannot use OneNote for this because without pictures, UX is useless :(
I'd like the ability to insert a picture into a onenote directly from my phone's camera (e.g. over bluetooth etc)
e.g. Choose Insert -> Picture -> from Phone, the Phones camera launches, you take the picture. It appears in the one note document
This is usefull for meetings where when you are taking notes, and want to capture something on the board.

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.
