Oppaii, 08 Oct 2020Barely hear this Omnivision, what phones does have this sensor?Ov48B - Xiaomi Mi10 Lite, Redmi 10X and 10X Pro. From some test I've seen they are better than Samsung's and on par with Sony.

Ov48C - Mi10 Ultra. The top camera in DXOMark rankings. Go and see how is performing.

Just have a good look at the latest iPhone 11 Pro, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra or Huawei P40 Pro telephoto and selfie photos - million times better that Xperia 1 II does.

Phones from samsung, apple and google give photos that look like edited by someone without any idea of what is doing. Even raw of these phones are heavily processed.

No jpeg of any cam gives you yellow faces, deep blacks, deep blue skies, purple night sky (night modes) , foreground brighter than reality nor make scene looks like plastic or wax.


Poor noise performance? RX100 can easily handle iso1600.
Phones are already garbage if iso pass 400.

BTW, there are cameras capable of muilti frame. Nobody uses because photos end up artificial.

Any sensor can be used for telephoto.
They just do not have one with same specs sold by samsung.
Sony has many 8MP 1/4" , but is using Samsung.
Some gossips say it is part of deal for oled.

The noise performance of a Rx100 is quite poor by the way. The first Rx100 has an old sensor and all Rx100 cameras can not combine multiple frames in a smart way. Some people simply look at specs, but they don't know what the specs really mean and when it comes to unedited wide angle jpgs a Rx100 (or full frame cameras) have no chance when compared with a 5 year old Google Nexus 5x in Google's HDR+ mode, apart from the resolution.

Barely hear this Omnivision, what phones does have this sensor?

Meanwhile Sony puts cheap, inferior Samsung sensors on their own top tier $1200 smartphones. Bloody bastards!

Overall area is much larger.

HM1/HMX are 72mm2, imx383 has 116mm2.
That is more than 60% larger.

Cameras like RX10, RX100 and ZV1 can wipe the floor with any phone.

Imx383 is 20MP 2.4 micron with DRAM inside ....

And it wouldn't make sense at all as the CM1 hardware captures less light per time than phones like the Xiaomi Note 10, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, Lenovo Moto Edge+, BBK Oneplus 8 Pro or Huawei P40 Pro and doesn't even have OIS.
