OPPO Reno11 Series: All About Its Imaging Technology

Oppo Reno11

OPPO is at the forefront of portrait photography innovation, and the Reno Series, in particular, showcases just how far smartphone portrait photography has come in recent years. With over 70 million Reno owners across 60 countries, ranging from casual photo takers to professionals, these dazzling numbers underscore the significant trust many people place in the capabilities of their OPPO devices.

Popularising a Portrait Focal Length

Telephoto cameras aren’t just for zooming. Yes, they get you closer to subjects, but they also create a unique perspective when taking a portrait photo.

One key advantage is they help users get closer to a subject without needing to invade their personal space. Another advantage is an effect known as spatial compression. A portrait lens can appear to “compress” or shrink the subject in relation to a background, making the background look larger and closer, and creating a more intentional-looking photo.

Compared with a traditional wide-angle main camera, a telephoto camera can capture portrait shots with less perspective distortion and a greater sense of intimacy. This helps take portraits to the next level.

Professional studio-level portrait photographers usually rely on a 50mm or 85mm telephoto lens to get the best portrait shots. The 50mm lens, casually referred to as the nifty 50, is also near the perspective of a human eye, making it a favorite among pros.

To offer a better and more professional portrait shooting experience, starting with the Reno10 series, OPPO introduced its industry-leading Telephoto Portrait Camera, previously reserved for pro-grade flagship devices.

Its 47mm focal length is very close to the photographer-favorite 50mm telephoto focal length and is perfect for distortion-free portrait shooting. The 2x optical zoom gives it a perfect focal length for portraits taken at, or near 50mm, and its algorithm produces bokeh effects comparable to those found in DSLRs, plus you can even adjust the amount of bokeh desired for your photos after the shoot

From Focal Length to Sensor Technology

Reno10 Series also came with a high-quality camera sensor – the 32MP IMX709 – which OPPO worked together with Sony to engineer. With a larger 1/2.74-inch sensor size, it offers better image quality than the competition – this puts the Reno Series at an advantage.

For the Reno11 Series, OPPO continued to drive innovation in smartphone portrait photography, with the line pioneering the new Ultra-Clear Portrait Camera System.

Both Reno11 and Reno11 Pro feature high-resolution 50MP main cameras with OIS and the 32MP Telephoto Portrait Camera with a 47mm equivalent focal length, which translates to a 2x zoom. These impressive cameras create powerful, versatile, professional-looking portrait opportunities at two distinct optical focal lengths.

To unlock true pro-grade portrait photography, Reno11 Pro also benefits from OPPO’s next-gen computational photography suite – the flagship algorithm – HyperTone Imaging Engine. Pioneered for Find X6 Pro and Find N3, and refined for Reno11 Pro, it represents a breakthrough for the Reno series and smartphones at large.

By merging multiple uncompressed images in the RAW domain and applying AI-powered denoise and demosaic processing, OPPO’s powerful HyperTone Imaging Engine significantly boosts image clarity, dynamic range, and color richness. Users can expect true flagship-quality portrait photography from Reno11 Pro.

OPPO Portrait Expert Engine

A great digital portrait is a combination of technology and aesthetics. With the Reno series, OPPO worked with professional portrait photographers from around the world to fine-tune the portrait shooting experience. The result is the powerful new OPPO Portrait Expert Engine.

For Reno11 Pro’s Ultra-Clear Portrait Camera System in particular, a new Portrait Mode combines with AI Portrait Retouching to capture a world of skin tones, expressions, and treasured moments.

With Reno11 Pro, choose between two optical points of view when you fire up Portrait Mode – a wide 24mm focal length so multiple subjects shine across the scene, or a 2x, 47mm portrait to focus attention on a single subject.
