From NYC to Tokyo: Eddie Redmayne shares life on the road using OPPO Find X5 Pro 5G
● Academy award-winning actor shares scenes from his travels during a recent press tour in New York City, Tokyo, and London
● OPPO Find X5 Pro features include MariSilicon X Imaging NPU, 4K Ultra Night Video, and dual flagship IXC766 camera system
Eddie Redmayne, the Academy-award winner, and Global Brand Ambassador for OPPO – the world’s leading smart device brand – has shared a set of photos that give fans a glimpse into his life and interests away from the cameras during a recent global press tour.
Taken with the OPPO Find X5 Pro 5G, the smartphone built to empower every moment, the British actor was able to bring to life the sights, sounds, and more secluded moments that caught his eye as he travelled across the world – from New York City to Tokyo, and his native London.
The Find X5 Pro 5G is packed with industry-leading features that enable users to be their true selves and express their individuality on their terms. Eddie was able to do that across 10 photographs to tell his own story, taking advantage of features including the 50MP Ultra Wide-Angle camera and 5-axis OIS system to counter handshake for perfect clarity and sharp shots.
The images captured by the Academy-award winner are as eclectic as the roles he portrays on screen – taking in everything from one of his favourite hotel rooms to a selfie with a mystery rooftop car in the streets of the Big Apple.
Here, he explains in his own words the inspiration behind each image:
“The strange beauty of the NYC subway on a recent trip promoting a new movie. No greater way to make your way around this stunning metropolis,” says Eddie.
“New York itself is like one massive exhibition space,” the Oscar-winner explains. “I glimpsed this street art of Debbie Harry on the East Side of the city when I went for an amble to clear my head between interviews.”
“One of my favourite hotels in the world is the Crosby in Soho New York. The windows are floor to ceiling and you feel like you’re floating in a pool of calm amidst the brilliant chaos of the city,” explains Eddie.
“Another view out of the window. I love the water towers. Proper ‘West Side Story’ stuff.”
Amidst his busy schedule, Eddie was able to do justice to his wife’s gardening abilities thanks to the Find X5 Pro’s dual flagship IXC766 camera system. “My wife has proper green fingers and has grown some stunning plants,” said Eddie. “The OPPO smartphone camera catches the beauty and messy symmetry of nature with such clarity.”
“I’ve always loved the sign of NYC. From street signs to neon ads. All captured here in reflected fragments. When I was a kid, at school I did an art project based on the ‘one way’ signs. I had a weird obsession with them and the old WALK/DONT WALK signs.”
“I was properly curious how that car behind me in this selfie managed to make it up onto the roof in NYC,” joked the British actor.
“Having a drink and catching up with family while on the Tokyo leg of the press tour. Another city with staggering views,” enthused Eddie. “My suit was about 5 different shades of grey, so it made sense to attempt to capture it in black and white.”
Eddie’s photo essay ends with “endless coffee needed to get through press days on the London leg of our press tour.”
The Find X5 Pro 5G is part of the flagship OPPO Find X5 Series that delivers clean, modern sophistication and world-first imaging experiences for customers. The phone is capable of captivating HDR photography and boasts the OPPO-developed MariSilicon X Imaging NPU to bring the night to life, without sacrificing colour – making 4K Ultra Night Video possible for the first time on an Android smartphone. Meanwhile, the one-of-its-kind 5-axis OIS system, part of the wide-angle camera, improves with every use to counter handshake, reduce noise and sharpen shots. These industry-leading features are contained within a futuristic, spacecraft inspired aesthetic for a phone that marries performance with design.
