The latest Oppo Find 7 "50MP" photo leaks and video sample are a mixed bag

The latest Oppo Find 7
As we've learned recently, Oppo is planning to use a bit of trickery in order to get its Find 7 to produce "50MP" photos. The device only features a 13MP sensor, but Oppo's camera can take multiple shots back-to-back and stitch them together into a 50MP image. Whatever the magic involved, the latest photo leaks are still fairly impressive most of the time.

Assuming these images are real, it looks like the Oppo camera will be great for most use cases, but isn't always the best for Oppo's so-called "Super Zoom" feature. The images look solid with nice colors, contrast, and impressively deep focus; and, in many of the shots, you can easily see how the "50MP" trick can help create better images. But, most of the shots that we've seen so far have been outdoor, or indoor with good lighting (like a shopping mall). The one shot that didn't have such great lighting looked good enough when zoomed out, but didn't look so good when you zoom in. Similarly, the panorama is not really in focus at all.

The latest leak also shows the first video sample that we've seen from the Oppo Find 7. Again, this one is a mixed bag. It is impressive that the camera can shoot up to 4k video, and the video shows a nice on-the-fly refocus of from the camera, but it that same refocus is the trouble. For the first 20 seconds of the 30 second clip, the video is completely out of focus and it isn't until the device is moved a bit that the camera software fixes the issue. Of course, the last 9 seconds look quite nice indeed.

Z1 okay, but i think that the Find 7 can't beat the Nokia lumia 1020....cuz nothing else comes close.

i mean like compare a 50mp image from the find 7 vs the full 41mp shot from the lumia, using the lumia as a benchmark

Blur is a result of a shakky hand... to test true performance of zooming feature, phone should be mounted on a stand... though in real life scenario hardly anyone use stand but for test purpose phone should be mounted on stand otherwise its not fair with this phone to leave it bypass human limitation(shakiness of hand)

What are you talking about??
Mounted on a stand will make 10 identical images to stitch them together into a fake 50MP image. This is %100 pure gimmick.

Wah wah wah... very intelligent answer... I am talking the same thing what this post is about. dont just run your mouth like a silly.. this post is already talking about 50mp picture by combining 10 shoots together and resulting in a one great shot, you are talking like you are telling something which nobody knows...

I think the idea of using a 13MP sensor to simulate a 50MP snapshot is an interesting use of the technology, and while the implementation is less than perfect, it is also likely something that can be addressed in future software updates.

Not as good of an idea as Asus's Super shot where they make a really good 2MP shot. Its actually amazing see the mobilegeeks youtube video of it.

For all its worth, it's still a new feature. Plenty of room for improvement. It's us consumers that would benefit from it, crappy or not for its first time. I'm excited.

So basically the 50Mpx image is just a software trick.
Waiting for some port to other devices so I can use it. That's the magic of Android

Meh, 50 MP is just a marketing gimmick. I wonder how big the sensor is.

There should be a special sensor of NASA's telescope for you big sensor guy... learn to appreciate an effort, this feature is not bad after all

i think that in some pictures the shooters hand was shaking too much make the snaps blurrier especially in 50mp mode

Yeah, you have a point, I was thinking the same... blur is a result of a shakky hand... to test true performance of zooming feature, phone should be mounted on a stand... though in real life scenario hardly anyone use stand but for test purpose phone should mounted on stand...

just use L1020, and you'll get the big image with high quality and amazing clarity,

I don't know why there's so much hate out there. Look you people..The world isn't just made up of Apple, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Sony & HTC. There's a whole lot of chinese companies that's rising up and unless you've actually had a hands on with these devices, your hate is like saying that a plate of fried rice taste disgusting just because someone else told you so. When in actual fact you have not even tried it.

Not everything that comes out of China is crap or a gimmick. There are a number of companies actually trying to innovate and do something good. While it may not be as good as it was intended to be, you are still able to see some good results from it. There are numerous reasons as to why Chinese companies are able to offer their products at a cheaper price, and it's not always because the quality of their product is terrible. I've used a Xiaomi Mi3, Huawei p6 & Mate, and a lenovo K910. They are all amazing in terms of build quality, performance and price.

I'm not dissing the bigger companies as i do love what the xperia Z2 and HTC one has to offer. But what i'm trying to say is that until you've actually tried the device, save your hate for after you've tried it and really hate it.
