For the first time, the brand decided to show two top devices at once within the same event, cause previously company produced 2 devices per year with a difference of 4-5 months. In today's article, we would like to tell you about the cameras of OnePlus 7 Pro, since this particular model must compete with such monsters of photography as the Huawei P30 Pro and Galaxy S10 Plus. The device received a triple main camera, as well as a front-facing periscope camera. In the DXOMARK rating, OnePlus 7 Pro is in third place with 111 points, while only one point was missing from first place.

OnePlus 7 Pro - a detailed overview of the flagship cameras

Characteristics of the main camera:

  • Main photo module: 48Mp Sony IMX586 (output photo size 12 MP), focal length 26 mm, aperture, f / 1.6 aperture and OIS
  • Wide-angle photo module: 16 megapixel sensor, lens with f / 2.2 aperture;
  • Telephoto lens: 8 megapixel sensor, focal length 78 mm, lens with f / 2.4 aperture and OIS;
  • Laser / PDAF autofocus;
  • Dual LED flash;
  • 4K / 60fps video (4K / 30fps at default settings).

As the main sensor in the smartphone uses 48 megapixel sensor from Sony, which since the beginning of 2019 managed to make a lot of noise on the Internet. The main feature of the sensor is that in the 48-megapixel mode, it can only be photographed with manual settings, because in automatic mode such a large number of megapixels are used to achieve other results. Firstly, the Quad-Bayer technology combining 4 pixels to 1, which reduces the resolution to 12 megapixels, but at the expense of this increases the dynamic range, noise is reduced, color rendering and detailing are improved. Secondly, the combined 4-in-1 pixel allows you to shoot at night in the maximum wax quality. Experts from DXOMARK are mentioning that the OnePlus 7 Pro really shoot with a wide dynamic range, keeping the details in both highlights and shadows. Excellent exposure, good contrast in almost any shooting conditions - all these are the advantages of a new flagship.

No less good apparatus and in the matter of portrait shooting with blurring the background. The smartphone pleasantly blurs the background, while correctly separating the object from the background. The device is not losing to the two leaders Huawei P30 Pro and Galaxy S10 Plus. Also, OnePlus 7 Pro has a 3x optical zoom without loss of quality. A telephoto lens shows good detail, color reproduction and noise level, although in all these parameters the telephoto lens is slightly inferior to that of the main photo module. The ability to shoot with an optical zoom without blurring the photo provides a 4-axis optical stabilizer. Finally, for shooting landscapes, both urban and natural, there is a 16 megapixel wide-angle camera with a viewing angle of around 120 degrees.

Front camera specifications:

  • Periscope-type front camera;
  • 1/3-inch Sony IMX471 sensor with a resolution of 16 megapixels and 1 micron pixels;
  • 25 mm equivalent focal length;
  • f / 2 diaphragm;
  • Fixed focus.

If the quality of photos and videos OnePlus 7 Pro is in the top three, losing only 1 point Huawei and Samsung, then the front camera cant really compete with the leaders. This is due to the fact that in the selfie-camera of the gadget there is no autofocus - it is fixed. As for the other parameters, such as exposure, detailing and color rendition, then everything is fine with the device. Also, the selfie-camera produces a photo with a normal noise level, although in low light this artifact begins to appear stronger.

Summing up, it is worth saying that the OnePlus 7 Pro has got really advanced cameras. This is noted by both bloggers and specialists who have already managed to conduct large-scale testing of the device. The device closes the top three on photo and video capabilities and it says a lot.
