    Wide World

    We have seen the Super Macro mode previously, happy that you all liked the Macro photographs. Now lets talk about the same lens which is an ultrawide lens capable of switching to both mode between ultrawide and Super Macro. The 50mp ultrawide camera having the Sony IMX766 sensor with f/2.2 with a 113 degree field of view.

    Lets get into a comparison between three modes of shots to understand better how a wide angle performs from the other two which are the Main camera and the Telephoto lens.

    I have taken three images in the above mentioned three modes, Moving on to the Telephoto lens first; the 8mp shooter which switches to telephoto mode when we zoom into the object more than 3.3x

    3.3x Zoom Telephoto

    Personally i am not a user of telephoto lens because they are only just digital zoom rather than optical so definitely it will loose quality and details, i can only find the Telephoto images useful those images clicked with in 25 to 30 meters of distance range between the object and the camera. The below image is clicked with 10x Zoom were the object was away approximately 30 meters away from the camera also the subject was tiny to visible in a smartphone camera in normal mode.

    10x Zoom

    as you see the images are losing details and being mushy while zooming

    The same scene was captured in the normal mode with the main camera

    The third one is the mode we are talking about; the Ultra wide mode

    Shot on Ultra Wide Mode

    i am very much impressed with the ultra wide images, as Oneplus promised there were no distortion big kudos to the freeform lens. The the images are bit more contrasty and the blacks were high sometimes were the light directly fall in the the camera and was wondering whether the UltraShot HDR might make up with that as expected in such conditions.

    Ultra Wide angle shots bring the whole environment into the scene that normal camera was not able to.

    Ultra wide brings a new perspective by adding more subjects to enhance the main object of the image as you can see the temple is highlighted by the tree branches and empty space in front of the the temple and the open sky.

    Having a different perspective will always stand out the image, prefer low angle images for wide angle shots which can cover the whole scene and bring the surroundings into the frame

    Yogi and The tree

    see the low angle perspective helps to blend the two subjects the man and the tree with the wide view.

    Also Negative spaces will come to play while shooting on ultrawide. the wide lens exaggerates the empty space not only the empty space it enhances the surrounding of the object too.

    Using the surroundings as a negative space

    Ultrawide mode be helpful to discover more perspectives like the POV shot below

    Lets have a look into some cool shots taken through the Ultra Wide lens

    Here are some tips that i follow also you can suggest some in the comments for the community
    • Try Low angle perspectives.
    • Close to the object to capture the whole surrounding environment.
    • Use negative space wisely to enhance the object, Also helps for minimalistic photography.
    • Try to match the object in your frame. Align the subjects according to the frame; as Ultra wide brings many from the surroundings so keep it clean without any clutter. it helps to distinguish and enhance the object to stand out.

    The overall performance of the Ultra Wide camera is too good, moreover there is no distortion or blackened vignette over the edges of the images that is a big plus of ultra wide lens. also the images seems like normal than looking like a curved fisheye like losing the shape and perspective of the images. Only downside i had experienced is as i mentioned the blacks are high and a bit contrasty in low light conditions and sometimes in direct sunlight situations. Sharpness and detailing was on point

    Hope all are safe; as we are having strict restrictions in our country and in the edge of lockdown in out state due to exponential rise in COVID-19 with a new strain... STAY SAFE
    I will be back with more, hoping the situation will be okay so that i can go out and take pictures

    Best colour ever for Oneplus phones, Pine green is looking elegant neat and classy. The matte finish is too good and it feels like smooth but not slippery smooth, obviously it gives a decent grip. It's seems like touching something like a matte finished smooth rubber 😉😉 ( I felt so while i tried a gentle scratch with finger tips ). Moreover we can touch everywhere coz not a fingerprint magent. It's so handy to hol, always use a case as we don't have a tempered glass for curved displays it's very very very essential to have a protection over the screen..

    Beautiful! Love the macro shots, but then again, I also love shooting macro shots on my OP9 (and have loved taking them on other phones too) but anyways, great job so far!
