OPPO Find X7 Ultra Camera Takes Mobile Photography to New Heights, But Is It Enough?

OPPO’s newest Find X7 Ultra flagship phones dropped, and their cameras are lookin’ pretty sweet, ya dig? We’re talkin’ pro-level optics paired with bonafide imaging sensors pumping out crispy shots that’ll have iPhone users green with envy. Makes me wanna ask – is mobile photography finally catchin’ up to the big boys? Let’s take a peep under the hood and see whatcha think.

Straight out the gate, these Find X7 Ultra packin’ heat with their Hasselblad branded quad cam setups. We’re talkin’ mighty fine lenses ranging from 14mm to 135mm, coverin’ everything from wide landscapes to tightly zoomed portraits. The Ultra model’s rockin’ Sony’s new 1-inch LYT-900 sensor in the main cam pushing 50MP – that’s some serious business right there!

Combining the bokehlicious f/1.8 aperture with big ol’ pixels, you can bet this cam’s lappin’ up light and details like a Boss. Low light, backlit shots – no prob, just clickity click. Portraits come out looking smoother. Really makes me wanna say “dang son, them engineers at OPPO know how to tune an optics system!”

And get this – them secondary cams ain’t no slouches neither, new dual periscope setup on the Ultra for 2x and 5x optical zoom. Tiny moving mirrors make it happen, pretty nifty if ya ask me. Great for gettin’ all up close and personal on far away subjects without losing quality. 2 more cams round it out – an ultrawide shooter plus a macro lens made specially for video.

Bringin’ it all together is OPPO’s computing photography system cooked up with Hasselblad. We’re talkin’ customized color science, lens effects, and image processing algorithms designed to mimic the swanky Swedish camera company’s high-end gear. So shots come out with that trademark Hasselblad look, even in a pocket-sized package.

But that ain’t all – the partnership also delivered a brand spankin’ new Master shooting mode. This puppy really takes mobile photography into pro camera territory by mimicking Hasselblad’s iconic X2D with enhanced color, tone mapping, and even lens vignetting. Makes me wanna say “shiver me timbers, it’s like I’m peering through a real DSLR viewfinder!”

And if that still don’t quite cut the mustard, you can even shoot RAW MAX formats up to 50MP after a software update. That’s some next level imaging power right there, perfect for pros and enthusiasts who wanna fine tune every last pixel.

So all said, are these new Find X7 Ultra cameras finally closing the gap with pro gear? For the average Joe looking to take breathtaking shots of vacays, kids, and pets, I’d say it’s pretty much there. Just point, shoot, and let that sophisticated software handle the heavy lifting. But pixel peepers and pros will likely still crave the control and quality of a dedicated system.

Really makes me curious – where does mobile photography go from here? Are device makers gonna add more megapixels and lenses until our pockets burst? Or will computational wizardry and AI soon replace big hardware? One thing’s for sure, we’ve come a long way since cameras first landed on phones. The shots coming out of these Find X7 Ultra prove mobile imaging still has room to grow. But for now, I’d say they’re easily some of the finest smartphone shooters out there.
