his ambition is going to shake the foundations of the high-end

  • 2

There is a new claimant to the throne of best photography smartphone of 2022. We already know in detail the characteristics of the mobile phones with which OPPO is going to compete in the high range this year, and one of them, the Find X5 Pro model, on paper has what it takes to measure itself from you to you with the most advanced terminals from brands such as Apple, Samsung or Google, among others (something that we will check as soon as we have the opportunity to analyze it in depth).

If we stick to its photographic hardware, the Find X5 is slightly more modest than the Find X5 Pro, although, as we will see in this article, its performance on paper also looks really good. At least well enough to put up a fight against competing phones with photographic ambition and a similar price. In any case, the one that seems to have what it takes to make a lot of noise in the world of mobile photography is the new flagship model of this brand: the Find X5 Pro.

These cameras have been designed to compete in the first division

I suggest that we start by investigating the front camera that these mobile phones incorporate. Both are committed to equipping it with a 32-megapixel sensor and optics with an f/2.4 aperture value, but, despite having the same resolution, the sensor on this unit is not the same. The Find X5 Pro incorporates a Sony IMX709 sensor, while the Find X5 integrates an IMX615 chip, also from Sony. The distinctive feature of the Pro model sensor is that is an RGBW matrix which seeks to collect more light, especially in low ambient light conditions, and shed a lower noise level.

Let’s go now with the main camera. Both smartphones opt for a 50-megapixel 1/1.56-inch Sony IMX766 sensor, but in the Pro model it coexists with an lens with an f/1.7 aperture value, and in the Find X5 with an f/1.8 lens, which , therefore, is slightly less luminous. However, the main difference between these mobiles if we stick to this camera lies in its optical stabilization system. And it is that the Find X5 Pro incorporates a solution of five-axis stabilization (we’ll delve into it in the next section of the article), while the Find X5 implements a somewhat more modest two-axis system.

The other two cameras housed in the rear module of these mobile phones have even more in common than the main unit. The ultra wide angle of both smartphones uses the same sensor Sony IMX766 50 megapixel used by the main camera, as well as an optic with an aperture value of f/2.2. On paper, the only difference in this camera between these two smartphones is that the Pro model’s optics are a bit more sophisticated, possibly aiming to keep geometric distortion and chromatic aberrations under control (again, we’ll check). when we look at it in depth).

Finally, the telephoto lens of these two terminals is identical. This camera is committed to a 13-megapixel sensor and optics with an f/2.4 aperture value. It incorporates optical stabilization, and offers us a zoom 2x opticala zoom hybrid 5x and a zoom 20x digital. to us the zoom Strictly digital does not usually convince us, however sophisticated it may be, but the optical and hybrid modes of this camera look good on paper, so it will be interesting to put them to the test to find out if they really manage to compete head-to-head with the best telephoto lenses on the market .

What can we expect from the Find X5 Pro’s five-axis stabilization

Until we get a chance to test whether this innovation performs as expected, the 5-axis stabilization should make a difference in shooting scenarios where camera shake clearly works against the photographer. This new stabilization system incorporates mechanical elements that seek to compensate for the vibration to which they are subjected both sensor and optics. It is a technology very similar to what we can find in some high-end dedicated photo cameras for a long time (and also in the professionals).

Oppostabilization

According to OPPO, its five-axis stabilization technology manages to fully compensate 65% of vibrations and has 3.5 times higher precision than its previous optical stabilization technology. It sounds great, but again, we won’t know if it really delivers what it promises until we have a chance to fully test the new Find X5 Pro (something we hope to do very soon to give you our assessment of this technology).

This is the mark that Hasselblad has left on these mobiles

The alliance that Hasselblad and OPPO have agreed for the moment is limited to the development of software linked to the cameras of these smartphones, so the Swedish photography company has not intervened in the development of the camera hardware. According to OPPO, one of the biggest concerns of Hasselblad engineers is to reproduce the color of the way as reliable as possiblewhich is why they have introduced their HNCS technology (Hasselblad Natural Color Solution), which precisely pursues this purpose.

The MariSilicon X NPU developed by OPPO, a chip produced with 6nm photolithography. However, Hasselblad’s footprint is not limited to just these areas; His engineers have also designed several filters for these mobile phones that mimic the visual finish of some of the flagship cameras of this brand, such as, for example, the XPan modelwhich is highly appreciated by fans of panoramic photography.
