At the stage of MWC 2017, OPPO showcased itsleadership in smartphone photography again.
OPPO worked for almost a year to develop therevolutionary periscope-styled dual-camera technology. Currently, more than 50patents have been filed for this technology.
5x LosslessZoom and yet Keeping the Smartphone Slim
The technology offers 5x lossless zoomcapability on a smart phone, a breakthrough innovation that sets the bar higher when compared to the 2x zoom functions available in the market today. Users will also enjoy an image stabilization capability like never before while keeping the device thin and sleek.
The “5x Dual Camera Zoom” technology was inspired by the idea of a periscope on a submarine. The dual camera utilizes wide-angle and telephoto lenses, and the housing for the telephoto lens uses an innovative periscope-style structure. By shifting the angle of the telephoto lens by 90 degrees, the lens will have the space it needs for a deep zoom.
This new dual-camera setup helps to keep a smartphone thin. The 3x optical zoom, matched with a proprietary image fusion technology for digital zoom, give users the industry’s first-ever loss less 5xdual camera zoom. Thanks to the periscope-style construction, the 5x dualcamera module is now only 5.7mm thick, which is even 10 percent thinner than atypical 2x optical zoom lens in a smartphone.
Typically, when the zoom factor increases incapturing an image, even the slightest vibrations can have a dramatic effect on the clarity of the image. The other breakthrough of this “5x Dual Camera Zoom”is the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) solution. Different from other manufacturers who use optical image stabilization on the wide-angle lens, OPPO took a new approach and applied OIS directly to the telephoto lens.
Through the OIS technology, both the prismand telephoto lens intelligently sense vibrations and compensate in real time.The all-new OIS solution can improve the performance of previous generations by 40 percent, and the prism mechanism dynamically adjusts its angle at preciseincrements of 0.0025o. This technology ensures that images are clear and stableeven at full 5x zoom.
The dual cameras with wide-angled and telephoto lens, together with the periscope-style construction, our image fusion technology and the Optical Image Stabilization, edges mobile photography evencloser to what digital
cameras are capable of doing. Our 5x Dual-Camera Zoom will again set yet another technological standard that others will emulate.
