Oppo presents true continuous zoom lens for cell phones

Oppo has held a “Future Imaging Technology Launch Event” online today to make some camera-related declarations, following the uncover of its “next-generation” under-display selfie camera recently.

Oppo is known for showing camera tech in prototype form long before it hits the market. The organization was the first to show periscope telephoto cameras and under-display cameras, for example, the two of which are progressively common on high-end gadgets.

The first new declaration is a telephoto lens with continuous optical zoom. Not at all like periscope telephoto lenses used today, the lens elements move all through the 85-200mm-equivalent zoom range implying that the pictures ought to be fresh at each focal length without the requirement for digital zoom, cropping, or artificial sharpening.

Vivo declared a comparative product for its Apex 2020 concept phone, yet the range was much more restricted — around 130-195mm-same. This Oppo module begins at 85mm, a common focal length for portrait headshots, which should make it much more flexible. Oppo brings up that using one camera across more focal lengths guarantees more steady performance as far as color and white balance, as well.

Shockingly, Oppo isn’t saying when it may transport this camera on a commercial gadget.

The next declaration is a five-axis optical picture stabilization system that utilizes both lens-shift and sensor-shift procedures as well as movement information from the phone’s gyroscope. Lens moving is utilized for more progressive stabilization, while sensor shift is applied in more dramatic situations, and incorporates the ability to move the sensor as well as along the X and Y axes.

Oppo says this takes into consideration three times preferable stabilization over you can accomplish with standard OIS camera modules, which is likewise what Vivo says about the gimbal-style systems it’s been shipping since last year. Unlike the zoom lens, however, Oppo is affirming a release timeframe for the OIS system — it’ll begin showing up in Oppo phones in the first quarter of 2022.

Oppo’s last significant declaration is a new image sensor that utilizes a RGBW sub-pixel layout, adding additional white subpixels for what the organization claims is a 60-percent increment in light sensitivity.

Oppo recognizes that previous attempts at RGBW sensors had their limitations, yet it figures the new effort should have a major effect because of further developed manufacturing processes and improved demosaicing algorithms. It’ll be accessible quite soon, as well — the organization says it’ll show up in phones shipping in Q4 2021.
