Moreover, Oppo completes this device with a 64MP main camera 1/1.73-inch Quad Bayer sensor to support HDR. The device also has a second camera 8MP ultra-wide shooter. It is not the end yet since there is also a 2MP depth sensor along with a 2MP macro camera. To answer the demand for video performance, Oppo Reno 5 Camera has a 4K 2160p or Full HD 1080p. Based on the test using this device at 1080 at 30 fps, the video quality is at its best.

With this camera performance, Oppo Reno 5 Pro has a tight competition with the Xiaomi Mi 10T 5G and Apple’s iPhone SE. Surprisingly, the camera in this device is not much better than its predecessor. It does not mean that it is a bad choice. Oppo improves it with a noticeable improvement for its noise control.

Using Oppo Reno 5 Pro gives you accurate target exposure, but the instabilities are also visible for consecutive shots. The color rendering is also inaccurate which decreases the score of its camera quality. For example, when you use this device to capture images with green or yellow color. Other than that, when it captures skin tones, the result looks unnatural.

The good thing about the camera is Oppo improves it with a wide depth of field. This way increases the focus and the good detail. Furthermore, the background looks sharp. Even better, it has reliable and accurate autofocus. The texture measurement showed that it was 80% acutance to deal with most lighting conditions. Also, this device has a good performance on it.

However, Oppo needs to know that the camera fine details were not well-defined. It is because the device has to do more to capture moving subjects. Well, the evidence is you will see some ghosting and fusion artifacts exist. Even though the noise control has a good performance, but it is still inconsistent. The evidence is you can still see the luminance noise exists.


Use this device for a night shot, and it will give you an accurate night portrait, good exposure detail, underexposed background as well. Besides, when you use this device in auto flash mode, the flash seems to fire pointlessly. Therefore, it makes the images look underwhelming, with dull exposures, clipped highlights, yellowish color cast, and visible noise.

On the contrary, when you are using this device in portrait mode, it has good depth-of-field bokeh shots. Also, the blur gradient in nice quality, the sharp areas look realistic as well. Unlike the previous model, Oppo Reno 5 Camera does not come with tele-lens module. Therefore, the Zoom works less effective than the predecessor. Those are all things you should know about the camera performance of Oppo Reno 5.
