OnePlus 8

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro were formalized on April 15. Sold from 899 euros, the Pro version includes high-end equipment. Among these, we can cite its Color Filter Camera.

It is the fourth rear photo sensor on the phone. Today, we know more about the nature and operation of this extraordinary camera.

According to the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, the Color Filter Camera would allow you to have unique photos thanks to filters as well as artistic lighting effects.

How it works?

The color filter camera setting can be found in the app under the color filters button. There are some familiar filters, including bright colors and the black and white filter. But apart from these, we can count a novelty called “Photochrome”.

The photochromic filter normally consists in producing colored images from black and white negatives. In addition, the fourth camera of the OnePlus 8 Pro seems to be inspired by this concept, but essentially offers a palette of colors revolving around the gray tint.

“Inspired by the unique color tones used by professional photographers, OnePlus innovatively uses a filter lens on the fourth camera, which processes light differently to generate a surreal image with a unique color tone.

The custom filter transforms the light passing through an unusual and unique spectrum for the sensor to be collected. And the data collected is then processed to generate images that seem rather surreal, “explained OnePlus, questioned by our colleagues from the Android Authority.
