You probably have heard news of the Oppo Find 7, a 5.5-inch display smartphone that supposedly has a 50 megapixel camera. Well, it doesn’t. What it has is a 13 megapixel rear camera that takes ten photographs quickly in “Super Zoom” mode, and stitches the best four out of them into a single 50 megapixel image. This is in the opposite direction of what Nokia did with its actual 41 megapixel cameras that produces large, high quality images and uses oversampling to produce smaller size images among other things.
My interest is piqued and I look forward to seeing the results of the Oppo Find 7 camera once it is out. Do you think Oppo are up to something?
