The Find X5 Pro has more or less the same camera system as the phone it replaces - in principle, at least. Its main and ultrawide cameras rely on the same 50MP Sony sensor, and the telephoto still offers just 2x zoom.
There are further nuances, however. Starting with what's missing, the 3MP microscope didn't make the cut this year. We already mentioned in our initial impressions that it was finicky enough in use and limited in its practical application that we won't be losing sleep over its absence on the Find X5 Pro.
The primary camera may still be using the same IMX766 sensor (50MP, Quad Bayer, 1/1.56", 1.0µm), but it's now got sensor-shift image stabilization added. It covers 3 axes - two translations and rotation around an axis perpendicular to the sensor plane, and that last one can't be done by lenses.
The lens itself is also stabilized, though - it corrects the two remaining axes of rotation, making for a combined 5-axis stabilization system. It also now uses an actual glass element on the front, which Oppo says helps reduce chromatic aberrations by 77%. Somewhere along the way, it's also gotten slightly wider (25mm equivalent now vs. 26mm before) and slightly brighter (f/1.7 vs. f/1.8).
The ultrawide camera is seemingly unchanged, and still has a 110-degree coverage with its f/2.2 aperture lens. It has autofocus, too, so it can work for closeups.
The IMX766 sensor that's at the heart of both the main and the ultrawide cameras features all-pixel omnidirectional autofocus, so it's sensitive to detail changes in both the horizontal and vertical direction. It can also focus reliably across the entire frame.
The telephoto uses a 13MP sensor, and our Find X5 Pro reports that to be the Samsung S5K3M5. It's a 1/3.4" sensor with 1.0µm pixels and a conventional Bayer color filter. The lens offers 2x zoom, an f/2.4 aperture, and isn't stabilized.
On the front, the Find gets a 32MP selfie camera, which reports being using the Sony IMX709 sensor (32MP, Quad Bayer, 1/2.74", 0.8µm). The lens has a fixed focus and an f/2.4 aperture, but, more importantly, it's wider than most at 21mm equivalent.
Then there's the matter of the under-the-hood things. Oppo is employing an in-house-developed MariSilicon X NPU whose all-powerful image processing pipeline enables 4K Ultra Night Video capture (in theory - it was still missing on our review unit) and a wide dynamic range for general video recording.
The Hasselblad collaboration, meanwhile, brings the Swedish camera company's color science on board, for what Oppo calls Natural Color Calibration. The 13-channel spectral sensor on the back undoubtedly helps in the color department by enabling more precise auto white balance.
The camera app bears Hasselblad-inspired touches, too, most notably the orange shutter release button. It's essentially the same as the one found on the latest Realmes and OnePlus phones.
Swiping on the viewfinder or the scroller below switches between modes, while the additional ones can be found under the "More" sub-menu. There's an option to re-arrange the modes to your liking.
The general Settings menu is found under the three-dot button in the upper-right corner of the viewfinder. That's also where you can switch off the automatic Macro detection.
And although there's a dedicated Night mode, we found that even in Photo mode, there's Night mode processing at play if the lighting conditions are met. It doesn't take more than a second or two at most for the capture and stacking process. There's also a tripod mode within the Night mode that uses longer exposure for better results. The Night mode is supported on all three cameras.
Oppo has brought Pro mode support to all of its cameras, but switching between lenses is a bit tricky. When you have the main camera active, it will give you two toggles on the viewfinder - 1x and 2x zoom. Both of which shoot with the main camera. The same applies to the ultrawide and the telephoto camera. One would wonder why would you want to shoot 2x zoom photos using the ultrawide camera.
In any case, the Pro mode gives you control over the usual stuff like ISO, exposure, white balance, manual focus and shutter speed. There are also focus peaking and histogram to help you out.
Some of those options are available in the so-called Movie mode for video capturing. There's a way to enable the advanced stabilization, HDR, a LOG option for wider dynamic range, ISO, shutter speed and histogram. it works with all three cameras, too.
