We are going to finish this article on Oppo Find X5 Pro by looking at the camera tech. The primary camera hosts a 50 MP sensor. But it also has a 50 MP ultra wide angle shooter, and a 13 MP telephoto lens.
The primary camera is created with a glass lens to reduce halo effects, and Oppo has also designed the camera with five axis optical image stabilization. The camera itself is powered by Oppo’s MariSilicon X chip which accounts for much of the improvements. It runs AI noise reduction and other image processing tasks. It is a dedicated image processor which sits separate to the Snapdragon SoC.
For this flagship device, Oppo has partnered with Hasselblad, a company that specializes in optics. This partnership clearly has an impact on the camera, but it also has helped Oppo to develop the Pro mode as well.
You can shoot in RAW or RAW+ format, by adjusting various settings on the camera. But, you can also use the Auto mode, which will produce stunning photos as well. Bottom line is that the colors on the pictures are impressively lifelike, just like what you would see with the naked eye.
Portrait photos always come up really nice which is pretty much usual when taking the picture with an Oppo flagship phones. And when you switch to the 50 megapixel ultra wide angle shooter, you don’t see any degradation in the colors. All color tones appear perfectly natural.
Oppo Find X5 Pro is absolutely amazing for low-light shots. And it is all thanks to the image stabilization feature. The phone software comes equipped with tons of more modes. Like for example a High-Res mode which uses the maximum capabilities of that 50 MP camera. And as a feature from Hasselblad there is an X-Pan mode that shoots in a vintage style with 65 x 24 aspect ratio.
If you want to change in video mode, you can shoot up to 4k resolution footage at 30 or 60 frames per second.
At the front there is a 32 megapixel selfie shooter, which does the job absolutely perfectly. The selfie cam can shoot up to Full HD Resolution. But, unfortunately, there is no 4k option available.
