    Not buying one plus ever again.Overpriced and camera is not good for a flagship. Also basic features like AOD is not available for my 7 pro. Even basic vivo phones have that feature.

    Week 5

    This time I will take you through Moravian region in Czechia. It is now easy to explore my surroundings because I saved an old van from the junkyard, then restored and rebuilt it into a campervan. I am so happy now to have a little home on the wheels :D. All photos taken on software version 11.2.5.5 .

    First stop at Jeseniky, my lovely home-based mountains. Rain was present but within this weather you can take really nice pictures with the 9 Pro.

    We will move into the Bile Karpaty in South Moravia close to Slovakian borders which are unfortunately closed. This area is not affected by tourism and it has a lot of potential. Sunny weather helped a lot to get these pictures.

    On the way to another destination we visited the zoo in Zlin. From bunch of photos these are my favourite.

    South Moravia especially Palava is my last and favourite destination. I always go here to get the summer vibes.

    Telephoto lens is finally useful, last sun rays before the sunset. No edit, auto mode.

    Macro photos

    I have an opportunity to take some nice macro shots during this trip. All taken without additional lens and in the hands, not edited.

    Bonus: Video samples

    Wide camera stabilization test in steep terrain, 4K 60fps



    Wide camera test at 8K, 30fps



    Main camera performance at night, 8K 30fps




    Summary

    After many camera updates the phone performs much better in many scenarios. I see improvement in white balance, colors and the biggest difference is the noise, which reduced a lot parallely with the oversharpening. Few days ago you can see that I've complained about performance of telephoto lens, with the update 11.2.5.5 quality improved and now with the newest version of 11.2.6.6 is even better! :D There is also a fresh version 11.2.7.7 which is not delivered yet to me but according to the update list it adds the HDR option in the video.

    Thank you :) I'm really surprised with 9Pro camera performance byself. Maybe DSLR will be prehistoric in the future. 😅
