Hugo Barra posted an HDR camera sample from the Xiaomi Mi 5, looks nice and crisp
Enough with the introductions, let's dive in the new camera sample which Xiaomi VP and prolific ex-Googler, Hugo Barra, posted on his Facebook page. By the way, a couple of days ago, we got a look at a pair of shots taken with the Mi 5, and we came away impressed with the level of detail, and not all that impressed with the botched white balance. With this in mind, how does Hugo's sample fare? The VP shot the leaves of a Cycad plant in HDR (which the scene doesn't call for) to show off the level of detail possible with the Mi 5's alleged 16MP rear camera.
The VP might upload a full-resolution shot on Xiaomi's forum, so we'll keep an eye on the boards for the full 16MP goodness and put it here once it goes live. Interim, gaze at that majestic Cycad in the gallery below. We also included the other two Xiaomi Mi 5 camera samples we have, shot by company co-founder Lin Bin.
