OPPO Reno8 5G as game-changer in night photography

(Press Release)

Nowadays, social media has become a big part of our daily lives. According to the Digital 2022 report released by We Are Social and Hootsuite, there were about 92.05 million social media users in the Philippines at the start of the year.

As Filipinos of all ages continue to embrace a digital lifestyle, taking photos or videos as a way of expression and sharing special moments, big or small, has become a part of our nature.

To empower such a lifestyle, we need a smartphone that can excellently capture these moments from day to night. Luckily, global smart device brand OPPO never fails to innovate its Reno Series, also known as #ThePortraitExpert, to deliver the new OPPO Reno8 5G that captures ultra-clear moments anytime and anywhere.

Since it was first introduced in 2019, the Reno Series has changed the game in mobile photography, elevating the way Filipinos take photos and videos. It pioneered various innovations that challenge the boundaries of camera phones, such as Bokeh Flare Portrait and Video, AI Color Portrait, and Dual-View Video, among others. This time, to make it easier for users to capture ultra-clear nights in portrait, OPPO has integrated flagship-level features in the all-new OPPO Reno8 5G.

As a testament to the OPPO Reno8 5G’s remarkable imaging technologies and capabilities, renowned event and lifestyle photographer Magic Liwanag and well-known fashion and art photographer Xander Angeles–both OPPO Reno8 5G ambassadors, shared what they have to say about the device as a great investment for photography experts and enthusiasts alike.

OPPO Reno8 5G cameras packed with Sony IMX sensors

Two is better than one, they say, and the same goes when it comes to our smartphone camera’s sensors as they ensure that you can take clear photos even in dark environments. The OPPO Reno8 5G’s cutting-edge cameras boast dual Sony flagship sensors. The OPPO Reno8 5G has a 32MP front camera with a Sony IMX709 sensor, coupled with the OPPO’s New Generation RGBW color array. This quality offers 60% more light than regular RGB lenses, making it the Portrait Expert.

The OPPO Reno8 5G also has a 50MP main camera with a Sony IMX766 sensor. To allow more light to pass through for improved imaging, it supports a 1/1.56-inch large sensor. Both cameras have a hardware-based DOL-HDR to give users nighttime portraits with the ideal mix of light and shade.

“The newest Portrait Expert’s 50MP rear camera integrated with the Sony IMX766 sensors make the OPPO Reno8 5G my go-to device when I need to take and upload photos immediately. With these features, the device’s cameras work even in low-light environments, especially when taking pictures of celebrities and musicians. It also has better auto-focus and delivers brighter images without over-sharpening the subject in places with minimal light. Having the OPPO Reno8 5G empowers me to try different scenes and explore new places because dark or low-light environments won’t hold me back,” Liwanag explained.

Features algorithms to enhance flagship-grade cameras for night photos, videos

May it be for a nighttime photo walk or to record your nightlife, the OPPO Reno8 5G’s Ultra Night Video and Ultra Night Portrait got your back.

For improved overall image brightness, quality, colors, details, and low image noise in dimly lit conditions, the dual Sony Flagship sensors in the OPPO Reno8 5G support the Ultra Night Video feature. This feature is AI-enhanced, so you are sure that your videos at night are always vivid and clear.

The OPPO Reno8 5G boasts its Ultra Night Portrait powered with Turbo RAW algorithm for quicker nighttime photography, higher resolution, and noise reduction. With this feature, you will surely have a super-clear nighttime portrait that will step up your night photography game.

“As a photographer, I believe that even though it’s nighttime and dark, it shouldn’t ruin your chances to capture memorable moments. Night photography gives a different feeling and inspiration as it challenges me with limited light. These low-lit environments bring out creativity to capture each moment and experience. Since I cannot always take my DSLR cameras with me, I rely on the Portrait Expert’s Ultra Night Portrait and Ultra Night Video for high-quality images and videos. These features allow me to take photos or videos at night whenever I feel inspired,” said Angeles.

Built with more imaging capabilities for everyday style, content

Show off your skills to your social media friends and followers with your snaps and video posts with OPPO Reno8 5G’s Portrait Mode for bokeh effects comparable to professional DSLR cameras. You can also take a movie-like, non-shaky timelapse of scenery and landscapes with its feature, Hyperlapse.

You can also have the creative flexibility given by OPPO Reno8 5G’s 960fps AI Slow-Motion with your videos since you have complete control over how and when slow motion begins. The AI used in the feature contributes to making the experience run more smoothly and appear sharper.

To top it all off, OPPO Reno8 5G’s AI Portrait Retouching makes real-time retouching more accurate because this leading-edge algorithm can detect 193 facial recognition points. This creates more effortless face shape retouching and adjustment when shooting a video.

“One of the things I enjoy about the OPPO Reno8 5G is its broad imaging capabilities that I can use more to empower my creative side, like the Portrait Mode. This feature delivers DSLR-like bokeh effects that I can freely adjust according to my preference, allowing me to explore various styles,” Liwanag remarked.

Angeles could not agree more with how the additional features help his creativity. “Because of the Portrait Expert’s Hyperlapse, I have a fun and different method of telling experiences in a longer but engaging and compressed form.”
