Speaker 1: I've finally got the one plus 10 pro in my hands, and I'm gonna see what its camera is capable of.
Speaker 1: One plus took the wraps off the 10 pro much earlier in the year, but it's only now where I've actually been able to get my grubby hands on it. It's the company's latest flagship. And as flagship, it comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect, including Qualcomm's latest snap, dragon eight gen [00:00:30] one processor, a glorious 6.7 inch screen 5g, fast charging. The list goes on, but it is the camera that I am particularly ex excited about. Not just because I'm a photographer, but because OnePlus phones have always had cameras that are decent, but not great. And with the 10 pro OnePlus is really hoping to up its game. You'll find three cameras on the back, including a 48 megapixel main sensor, a 50 megapixel [00:01:00] ultra wide camera and an eight megapixel telephoto camera that offers 3.3 times telephoto zoom, all of which sounds great.
Speaker 1: However, I've been given this phone quite early on and OnePlus has insisted that I only take photos using the main camera. So that means I can't use the ultra wide and I can't use a tele a photo, and I can't use this selfie camera on the front either. And I also can't use any of the cool new features, including the Panorama [00:01:30] mode and night mode portrait modes or the various hassle blood color modes that it has included on the 10 pro. So it was with that in mind that I pocketed some of its main rivals, including the iPhone 30 team pro the pixel six pro and the galaxy S 22 ultra and I headed to Scotland's beautiful coastal town of St. Moderns to start the test.
Speaker 1: My first shot was this lovely scene, overlooking [00:02:00] the Harbor. The OnePlus tended a great job here with natural colors and a pleasing level of contrast. The pixels had similar colors and contrast while the iPhones had a slight shift in color tone. And it does look a touch, darker, adjusting my position. I found this lovely scene using one of the fishing boys as some interesting foreground. Again, I like the OnePlus shot here with the iPhones looking a bit darker while the S 22 ultra shot is much more vivid and punchy, [00:02:30] which you might prefer for a quick snap, but in my opinion, it doesn't look quite as natural. Then there's the pixel shot, which is probably my favorite from this particular test, thanks to its overall beautiful colors and even contrast feature OnePlus set I can use though, is the pro mode. And that means I can also use its new raw plus.
Speaker 1: Now raw plus uses computational techniques like HDR to get an even exposure, but still outputs, an easily editable DG raw [00:03:00] file. It's pretty much the same thing as Apple's pro role. And I'm a big fan of the extra flexibility. It gets you when you're editing your images in apps like Adobe Lightroom, that let me take the raw version of that boy image and produce a much more artful shot that I'm really pleased with with beautiful colors, but maintaining that exposure balance between the brightest sky and shadowy foreground. And I've done the same thing here, taking a fairly drab raw shots and injecting a bit more life into it in Lightroom, of course not [00:03:30] all of you will want to spend the time in playing with Lightroom, but those of you who do want to try and squeeze every last bit of artistic detail out of your images will be well allocated for, with the raw plus mode.
Speaker 1: I then moved around the bay to photograph this amazing zigzag Breakwater that jets into the sea. The OnePlus 10 pro did a great job balancing that challenging exposure. And I think it shut is pretty much on a par with what I got from the iPhone with the S 22 ultras image, looking a bit more cool and [00:04:00] contrasty. And that's exactly the same thing I found on these amazing rocks that arc their way into the frame. The shots from the one plus 10 pro the 13 pro and the pixel six pro are all well balanced with quite similar natural colors. While the S 22 ultra has gone a bit colder and more punchy. And that kind punchiness is something that I might want to add later to my images in post, rather than having the camera force it on me. By default. In fact, I switched to raw plus in [00:04:30] the pro mode again, here on the OnePlus.
Speaker 1: And I really like this moody black and white edit I made on this scene. It's pin sharp in the amount of dynamic range captured meant I was easily able to lift the shadows on the rocks and keep control of that bright sky, but the OnePlus isn't always spot on with its colors. I found this lovely scene crouching down in the waves that put some big rocks in the foreground. And I found that the OnePlus shot was quite overly warm here, especially when viewed against a consistently cool [00:05:00] tones of S 22 ultra the iPhone shots struck more of a balance to my eye. And I think it achieved a better looking image here. As a result, I also found close up shots to be a little bit more problematic for the one plus 10 pro in this macro shot. It's clear that there's quite a lot of lens blur, particularly around the edges of the photo, which is much less noticeable on iPhone 13 pros image.
Speaker 1: But overall, I am impressed with how the one plus 10 pro has performed in this early test. It's difficult to say at this [00:05:30] point, whether it's any better or worse than its rivals, but from the tests I've seen so far, I definitely say it's on a par with them, which really wasn't something that I could have said with the previous generations, of course, before I can come to any kind of definitive verdicts though, I will need to put that ultra wide lens of a test along with the Teleo and its night mode and its portrait mode and all the various other modes that OnePlus has packed into this phone, which so far I'm not allowed to go near, but it's certainly off to a good start and I am excited to see what [00:06:00] else it can do.
