The OPPO R9s is a well designed smartphone where OPPO emphasized a lot marketing key-features on the camera. The new customized SONY IMX 398 sensor for OPPO, Dual-PDAF (Phase Detection Auto-focus), large f/1.7 aperture lens and also Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS)
Let’s begin with the new sensor. It equipped with a brand new 16 megapixel SONY IMX 398 Exmor RS Stacked sensor that exclusively customized for OPPO. The IMX 398 produced an image that consists of 4,608 x 3,456 pixels resolutions and with capability of Dual-PDAF technology.
What actually is Dual PDAF?
Camera sensor has number of pixels on it where each of the pixel catch light and process the picture that captured by the photodiodes present in the pixels. There are two photodiodes pixel in a single pixel where one works to capture “Phase” where the other captures the “Contrast”. This is the traditional PDAF auto-focus.
So now with the dual-PDAF, both of photodiodes works to captures “Phase” and “Contrast” making an improvement of 40% auto-focus speeds even in low lighting.
There’s a very wide f/1.7 aperture lens that allows more light enter to the sensor thus it should excel well in low-light performance and reliable focus.
