Realme 5's 64MP camera samples arrive and they look impressive

Ro, 08 August 2019

Yesterday Realme detailed the quad-camera module that's going to be the centerpiece feature of the upcoming Realme 5 smartphone and today the company shared a couple of samples taken with the star of the setup - the 64MP main module.

The setup has a 64MP main camera with Tetracell technology (or Quad-bayer in Sony speak) supporting native pixel binning so the pictures would normally come out in 16MP resolution. Yet the two samples we got are in the full 64MP resolution. As can be expected detail at the pixel level is about average, but if you downsample them to 16MP the image is super sharp.

Dynamic range also looks impressive - even the cloudy sky in the second shot didn't blow out. The huge sensor clearly helps a great deal with that.

You have no idea what are you talking about. Downsampling is SOFTWARE. Those sensors are using pixel binning. 64MP sensors at 16MP mode won't take a 64MP image then downscale it to 16MP. At HARDWARE level, 4 pixel will act like a single pixel and it ...
