Mobile portrait photography
Since the advent of the smartphone, manufacturers have been competing to provide the best camera experience for users. Smartphones have a portrait mode similar to shooting with a wide-aperture lens. The OPPO Reno11 Series contains the patented Reno Series “Portrait Expert”. The IMX890 50MP ultra-clear main camera, IMX709 32MP telephoto portrait camera, and a 112° ultra-wide-angle camera. The selfie camera has a 32MP lens. This enhances the image quality. The upgraded imaging technology helps accentuate natural beauty. In addition, the camera lenses are decorated with Sunshine Rings.
The OPPO Reno11 Series telephoto camera experience is like shooting with a 50-85mm optic lens—all from your cellphone. It’s easier than ever to take crisp portrait photos. All you have to do is pick the moment, point, and shoot. With a few hand adjustments to pick the right lighting, you can take a photo good enough to hang in your home gallery.
While manual settings are great for pros, as someone on the move the in-built Portrait Expert Engine makes it easy to capture well-lit portraits. The AI Portrait Retouching features ensures that the final image has natural light and shadows. Imaging technology is a main focus of OPPO. Its brand proposition of “Inspiration Ahead” purports to bring cutting-edge technology into the hands of users.
