More supposed 50MP images from Oppo Find 7 show up

More supposed 50MP images from Oppo Find 7 show up
As we look at these fine pictures, we stand by our previously stated theories when we were looking at a high-resolution picture of a drab brown ’74 Ford a few days ago.  Of course, if these really are from the Oppo Find 7, the camera is a beast.

While we are excited at the prospect of seeing such an audacious idea for a smartphone camera, we are keeping a healthy bit of skepticism handy just in case this turns out to be some strange twist of marketing in the works.

That said, we cannot help but dig into these photos anyway because the depth of zoom is simply really cool. The detail at full zoom is still a little less than what one might expect for such a high-resolution photo, but for now we will leave that to the eye of the beholder and maybe pre-release software that will be massaged ahead of commercial release (again, assuming there really will be this large a camera sensor on the Find 7).

Keep in mind that clicking these thumbnails will take you to the full resolution photo with our zoom feature. The photos are large files, between 8 and 10MB each. The EXIF data says “OPPO Find7,” but again that information is as easy as clicking a mouse and typing new information. Meanwhile, we suggest you do not try to look at the full sized images without some meaningful bandwidth at your disposal.  What do you think of the pictures?

Yeah, but I've heard that Oppo has good reputation on updates, so I'm sure that camera will be improved.

That is likely due to the inconsistency between your screen and the pixel density of the image. You would have to see it one a one to one pixel mapping for a good idea of actual clarity. Also, a lot of the pictures are taken of a foreground object being the focus, which reduces the clarity of background objects, so if you zoom the focus point it should be pretty amazing. Overall I like the images, they look pretty amazing.

For* though* Yes 50MP. Highest resolution so far to make it's way on a mobile phone if rumors hold true.

My iPad Mini 2 needs work. It always corrects its to it's. :/

Why are you using auto correct? It just ruins the typing experience on any device.

I'm a really fast typer with on screen devices and on a computer keyboard. Auto correct saves my life 90% of the time, but that other 10% makes really awkward text messages...

At least I make mistakes so rarely that I rather put one wrong letter than write the whole sentence wrong lol.

Did you see the Note 3 ??? If you downsize those images to 13Mpx you´ll have a winner ... Note 3. 50Mpx is good to work on photoshop.

I don't know if it's been mentioned already, but I hope the Oppo Find 7 comes with a micro SD card slot. Won't be too much space left if you keep taking 50mp photos. I guess the Lumia 1020 didn't have a card slot either (?), but I haven't heard of any complaints about storage issues. Guess the 32GB standard helped a little. The Nikon D800/800E has 36mp and that can already blow up images really big so a part of me wonders if 50mp is really necessary for a smartphone camera at the moment (maybe in the future when technology advances with storage or size or whatever). Detail is always nice, but even a 16mp camera is more than sufficient for most people. The newly announced Nikon D4S still carries a 16mp sensor and is aimed at professionals. The samples above look great (though I can't seem to load the larger size for some reason... size? idk), but I'd want to try it myself and see if it is not just a gimmick. The camera on the Lumia 1020 is amazing so I don't really have a reason to doubt the one on Oppo, but I still have a big big hunch that 1.) 50mp is not necessary on a camera phone atm and 2.) it's probably going to take up a lot of space. Granted on DSLR's we shoot RAW so it adds in file size, but imagine if those images were shot in RAW LOL you'd have maybe 1 or 2 pics on your phone. Anyway I'm still excited to see technology pushing forward and bringing more exciting surprises (:

Your post is way too long. I know the Oppo F7 will be a beast.

You don't have to read it (: and I agree I think the Oppo Find 7 will be a great phone.

These pics are good, for sure, but not excellent. The deails are, well, MEH..:O I don't understand.. Do mobile camera's need that many MP's. I mean, a good amount of MP count is needed, may be upto 20 or something but 50mp..well..hmm.. I don't know..

18. yudi.nemesis unregistered

One of the biggest problem with phone camera is there is no optical zoom and i think higher MP count is the best solution at least for now. Because with higher MP you can get loseless zoom or you can crop the image without losing to much details.

19. yudi.nemesis unregistered

But they must make sure that the sensor is big enough.

Yeah true my friend..! But for me, optical zoom ain't an issue actually, coz I'm used to Prime lenses. I prefer quality over MP count, but at the same time I'm not saying too less is good. But I say, upto 24MP's is apt for phones, but its inevitable in this Pixel hungry world :D Also OEM's should be focusing more in the quality of lens and the processing other than just increasing the MP count. My dream phone camera would be like, A 20MP sensor (sufficiently big) with a F1.4 lens (a real good one) with OIS (it would be a charm if the aperture is variable) and a min shutter speed of at least 15sec's (need a tripod for that). Full manual controls. RAW. 4K with promising bit rates and framerates. Haha, where am i going right.. :D I hope to the future..!

Curious to see what the sensor size is on this phone if it has a 50mp cam!
