OnePlus is one of the few smartphone brands that has an emotional connection with users. Over the years, OnePlus has gotten a huge response in the market and the brand’s handsets usually sell like hot cakes as the demand for every new OnePlus phone is skyrocketing. OnePlus 10 Pro, the latest flagship from OnePlus, can be defined as the culmination of eight years of work by the brand. The OnePlus 10 Pro follows the brand’s Never Settle attitude and is a flagship without compromise. While the phone has a beautiful display, impressive user interface and a top-notch processor, the USP of the phone has to be its second-generation Hasselblad camera setup.
Powerful camera hardware – unparalleled variety for budding photographers
The OnePlus 10 Pro features a custom 48MP Sony IMX789 primary camera sensor that shoots in full 10-bit color. The 1/1.43-inch primary sensor offers improved noise reduction, resolution and dynamic range. The OnePlus 10 Pro also has the widest ultra-wide camera ever on a OnePlus phone, and the new sensor allows you to capture shots that weren’t possible before. The ultra-wide sensor has a 150-degree field of view and can capture images four times wider than clicked with 120-degree ultra-wide sensors. The ultra-wide camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro also offers a Fisheye mode that replicates the look of traditional fisheye lenses. It means you can have a new perspective while shooting with this lens and let your creative side take over.
The OnePlus 10 Pro also has an 8MP telephoto camera that offers up to 3.3x optical zoom. Like the other two sensors, this camera also takes photos in full 10-bit color. The telephoto camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro allows users to click images with up to 30x digital zoom, assisted by a new super-resolution algorithm that improves the clarity of photos. The telephoto sensor also comes with optical image stabilization (OIS) that helps eliminate blur and further improves the quality of images.
The selfie camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro has been significantly improved over last year’s model. Instead of the 16MP Sony IMX471 unit of the OnePlus 9 Pro, you now get a 32MP Sony IMX615 sensor that offers double the megapixels and a 27 percent wider field of view in comparison. The selfie camera performance also gets a boost in the software department with included support for Nightscape mode, which allows you to take crisp and clear selfies in low-light scenarios. The 32MP front-facing camera sensor also benefits from OnePlus’s skin-tone calibration, which ensures skin tones look more natural than ever before.
Hasselblad Second Generation Camera – Broadening Horizons
Last year, OnePlus announced that the brand is partnering with one of the biggest names in the camera industry – Hasselblad – for its flagship smartphone cameras. With this partnership, OnePlus wanted to bring Hasselblad’s camera expertise to more people than ever before. As OnePlus brought the Hasselblad camera experience to mobile, it ensured that the essence of Hasselblad was captured by introducing aspects such as extraordinary color science and the distinct Hasselblad leaf shutter sound. Thanks to this partnership with Hasselblad, the OnePlus 9 Pro series phones turned out to be some of the best camera phones money can buy.
The OnePlus 10 Pro includes the second-generation Hasselblad camera, which promises to bring a whole new level of camera experience. So let’s take a look at the features of the second-generation Hasselblad Camera and see why it makes the OnePlus 10 Pro one of the best camera phones you can buy right now.
OnePlus Billion Color Solution
OnePlus Billion Color Solution is one of the most crucial aspects of the second-generation Hasselblad optic offered on the OnePlus 10 Pro. Allows Hasselblad natural color calibration to be applied to over a billion colors. All three cameras on the back of the phone i.e. the primary sensor, the telephoto lens and the ultra-wide camera can shoot in full 10-bit color.
To give you a clearer idea, the OnePlus 10 Pro handles 64 times more colors compared to smartphones that record in 8-bit color. In addition, the phone clicks pictures using the DCI-P3 color gamut. It provides 25 percent more color coverage than the sRGB color gamut used by other smartphones. Due to these characteristics, the photos show more delicate and elegant colors. Because the color bands are drastically reduced, you get smoother transitions between colors.
Hasselblad Pro Mode
OnePlus introduced the Hasselblad Pro mode with last year’s OnePlus 9 series models, and it too has gotten a major upgrade with the OnePlus 10 Pro. Rather than being limited to just one or two camera sensors, Pro mode now works on all three rear cameras, including the primary, telephoto and ultra-wide sensors. Hasselblad Pro mode lets you adjust various aspects of your shot, including ISO, white balance, and much more.
Notably, the Hasselblad Pro mode on the OnePlus 10 Pro comes with an all-new feature called RAW+ that allows you to shoot up to 12-bit RAW while retaining the computational photography elements of the OnePlus 10 Pro, including improved dynamic range and noise reduction. This means you get higher quality image files and more creative freedom than ever when editing your images.
With the excellent camera setup of the OnePlus 10 Pro in your hands, you’ll feel like a professional photographer. To reinforce this feeling, OnePlus has added a Master Style feature to the OnePlus 10 Pro that allows you to click photos with calibrated color palettes from professional Hasselblad photographers. This new feature offers three different color styles, Serenity, Radiance and Emerald, which have been calibrated by Hasselblad Ambassador Yin Chao and Hasselblad Masters winners Ben Thomas and David Peskens. Serenity is best suited for portraiture and tries to provide the look and feel of Yin Chao’s iconic fashion photography. Radiance is inspired by Ben Thomas’ hyper-reality style, while Emerald is perfect for idyllic landscape shots.
Professional videography – movie mode, 8K recording and more
Now that we’ve talked about the stills in detail, time to discuss videography. The OnePlus 10 Pro can record in 4K resolution at up to 120 fps and in 8K resolution at 24 fps. The OnePlus 10 Pro comes with a new feature called Movie Mode. It allows you to adjust various shooting parameters such as ISO, shutter speed and white balance of the video before and even during shooting sessions.
Movie mode also allows you to record videos in LOG format without a preset image profile, giving you complete freedom to make color corrections according to your preference after the video is recorded. You also get a Dual-View feature on the OnePlus 10 Pro that lets you record with the front and rear cameras at the same time, making it perfect for vloggers.
