Recently, there are many new mobile phones in the mobile phone market, and each has its own unique skills in taking photos, such as 100 million pixels, such as 5X ray change, such as periscope head, such as micro head, etc., which make people dazzling. So, in the end is what kind of phone take a good picture, we might as well through the technology publicity, to see the essence.
First, let’s take a look at the Dxomark score. The top ten are basically divided into three types, such as the comprehensive heap type of Huawei and Xiaomi, the powerful algorithm type of Apple, and the comprehensive stable type of Lanchang Green Factory, which has been mentioned in many words.
First, the core is still the main CMOS, and the main CMOS must be large so that it can occupy the front row. Of the ten models, except for apple’s two main CMOS models, which are not big, the others are bigger, so as to get the quality advantage of the main picture.
Second, it’s just not strong with 5X. In fact, the strongest 5X variant is the large CMOS 5X variant of the Mi 10 Supreme Commemorative edition, which truly realizes the practical level of 5X image quality. The Mi 10 Supreme Commemorative edition is also the most powerful phone for telephoto. Many 5X’s, however, offer only 8 megapixels, small apertures, and small CMOS configurations, but the imaging effect is much worse, and this 5X is actually ambiguous.
Third, look at software algorithms. Xiaomi, for example, procures many of its CMOS from Samsung, but the picture quality is better than Samsung’s phones, suggesting that xiaomi is deeply optimized for this. Of course, the most optimized is Apple, whose iPhone 12 Pro doesn’t have a large CMOS, but the overall effect is remarkable.
Fourth, how to watch the video. Video evaluation Jun here think that the main aspects, such as exposure accuracy, color and accuracy, autofocus effect, and anti – shake effect. In this respect, iPhone has done very well. Although domestic brands have used micro head and dual buffing, you always feel that iPhone 12 is better in terms of buffing. This is even without HDR.
The fifth one is about the software. For example, Apple can take RAW photos, not only can you adjust the exposure, the sharpness, the color style, etc., but you can also adjust the aperture, the light style, you don’t have curves yet, but it’s quite complete. This is relatively advanced for Android.
The sixth question is whether 100 million pixels is necessary. We have seen that if the algorithm is good, it can still optimize the details of a 100-megapixel photo, so that the specific parts can be useful. That said, native 100 megapixels, plus better algorithms, do deliver great detail (not too much).
Just as some people like telephoto, some like ultra-wide Angle, some like wide aperture, and some like detail, so there will be 144 megapixel shots to follow.
Moreover, 100-megapixel CMOS is not silly pixel high, it will also combine pixels, improve photosensitive and color, to present better photos, at this time, the blur, color and other aspects are also strong.
In short, the hype is strong, even though there are plenty of phones with features, bigger CMOS, or 5X variants, that mess up with photos and videos. Simply believe the manufacturer’s word of publicity, may still want to pay tuition fees, more comparison, more horizontal comparison to get the results.
