Social media become a huge part of our everyday life. At the beginning of the year, there were around 92.05 million social media users in the Philippines, according to the Digital 2022 study published by We Are Social and Hootsuite.
With the increasing embrace of a digital lifestyle by Filipinos of all ages, sharing cherished moments, big or small, through images or videos has become part of the routine for us. We need a smartphone that can capture these moments superbly from day to night to maintain such a lifestyle.
The Reno Series has improved mobile photography since it was first released in 2019, influencing how Filipinos capture pictures and movies. It set the bar for several advancements, including Dual-View Video, AI Color Portrait, and Bokeh Flare Portrait and Video, among others, that push the limits of camera phones.
This time, OPPO has included flagship-level functionality in the all-new OPPO Reno8 5G to make it simpler for customers to take ultra-clear evenings in portrait.
Photographers like Magic Liwanag, a well-known event and lifestyle photographer, and Xander Angeles, a well-known fashion and art photographer, both OPPO Reno8 5G ambassadors, offered their thoughts on the smartphone as a fantastic investment for both photography experts and hobbyists.
OPPO Reno8 5G cameras packed with Sony IMX sensors
They say that two is better than one, and this is also true of the sensors on our smartphone cameras, which make it possible to shoot good pictures even in low light. The cutting-edge cameras of the OPPO Reno8 5G include two Sony flagship sensors.
The 32MP front camera of the OPPO Reno8 5G is equipped with a Sony IMX709 sensor and the OPPO’s New Generation RGBW color array. This quality provides 60% more light than standard RGB lenses, making it the Portrait Expert.
In addition, the OPPO Reno8 5G includes a 50MP primary camera with a Sony IMX766 sensor. It has a 1/1.56-inch large sensor to allow more light to flow through for better pictures. Both cameras have hardware-based DOL-HDR to provide consumers with nighttime portraits that have the correct balance of light and shadow.
“The newest Portrait Expert’s 50MP rear camera integrated with the Sony IMX766 sensors makes the OPPO Reno8 5G my go-to device when I need to take and upload photos immediately. With these features, the device’s cameras work even in low-light environments, especially when taking pictures of celebrities and musicians. It also has better auto-focus and delivers brighter images without over-sharpening the subject in places with minimal light. Having the OPPO Reno8 5G empowers me to try different scenes and explore new places because dark or low-light environments won’t hold me back,” Liwanag explained.
Features algorithms to enhance flagship-grade cameras for night photos, videos
Whether you’re going on a nighttime photo walk or recording your nightlife, the OPPO Reno8 5G’s Ultra Night Video and Ultra Night Portrait have you covered.
The dual Sony Flagship sensors in the OPPO Reno8 5G offer the Ultra Night Video feature, which improves overall image brightness, clarity, colors, details, and low image noise in low-light conditions. This function is AI-enhanced, so your films at night will always be vibrant and clear.
For quicker nighttime photography, greater quality, and noise reduction, the OPPO Reno8 5G offers its Ultra Night Portrait powered with a Turbo RAW algorithm. You can be sure that using this feature will result in a midnight portrait that is crystal clear and will enhance your night photography game.
“As a photographer, I believe that even though it’s nighttime and dark, it shouldn’t ruin your chances to capture memorable moments. Night photography gives a different feeling and inspiration as it challenges me with limited light. These low-lit environments bring out creativity to capture each moment and experience. Since I cannot always take my DSLR cameras with me, I rely on the Portrait Expert’s Ultra Night Portrait and Ultra Night Video for high-quality images and videos. These features allow me to take photos or videos at night whenever I feel inspired,” said Angeles.
Built with more imaging capabilities for everyday style, content
With the OPPO Reno8 5G’s Portrait Mode, which produces bokeh effects similar to those produced by high-end DSLR cameras, you can impress your social media friends and followers with your photos and videos.
Moreover, with its Hyperlapse feature, you can also capture a movie-like, non-shaky timelapse of scenery and landscapes.
You can also use the OPPO Reno8 5G’s 960fps AI Slow-Motion with your videos since you have total control over how and when slow motion begins. The AI in the feature adds to the experience of running more smoothly and looking sharper.
OPPO Reno8 5G’s AI Portrait Retouching improves real-time retouching accuracy thanks to its cutting-edge algorithm’s ability to recognize 193 face recognition points. When filming a video, this makes facial shape retouching and correction easier.
“One of the things I enjoy about the OPPO Reno8 5G is its broad imaging capabilities that I can use more to empower my creative side, like the Portrait Mode. This feature delivers DSLR-like bokeh effects that I can freely adjust according to my preference, allowing me to explore various styles,” Liwanag remarked.
Angeles could not agree more with how the additional features help his creativity. “Because of the Portrait Expert’s Hyperlapse, I have a fun and different method of telling experiences in a longer but engaging and compressed form.”
