The long awaited OnePlus 10 Pro is finally out… well, at least in China. BBK Electronics is gearing up for a global spring release, and there are a lot of questions about the device.
For example, the 10 Pro’s predecessor, the OnePlus 9 Pro, promised a big improvement in the camera department, but once again fell behind the competition. Now, OnePlus is once again collaborating with Hasselblad to deliver a supreme camera system. The phone has an improved array of camera sensors and lots of new photography and filming features.
The OnePlus 10 Pro will retail for around $ 1,000 when it releases globally, feature Snapdragon’s new 8 Gen 1 chip, and come with 12GB of RAM and a 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Now that we’ve summarized the key specs, let’s take a closer look at what to expect from the OnePlus 10 Pro cameras.

OnePlus 10 Pro camera summary
As mentioned above, the OnePlus 10 Pro uses a triple camera system. Here are all the cameras and their specifications:
The OnePlus 10 Pro’s 48MP main camera captures photos at 12MP by default with pixel binning. This increases low light performance by combining four pixels into a larger one. It also results in images that take less data to store.

OnePlus 10 Pro camera upgrades
The OnePlus 10 Pro has retained the same main and telephoto sensors as last year’s 9 Pro. The ultra-wide camera now has a 150 ° field of view. This means it will capture more in the same frame, but at the cost of greater distortion.
According to OnePlus, this camera is four times wider than traditional ultra-wide shooters. The 10 Pro can also capture a 110° field of view if you don’t want to go completely crazy ultra-wide. The shooter also supports AI (artificial intelligence) for potentially better results.
OnePlus’ improved ultra-wide camera supports Fisheye mode. This mode can capture fun images and has become very popular in recent years, especially in Asia.

As for the rest of the cameras, this year’s OnePlus 10 Pro ditched the fourth 2MP monochrome sensor seen in the 9 Pro. This means the OnePlus 10 Pro uses a three-camera system instead of a quad.
The rest of the improvements are due to new software and processing. OnePlus is showcasing its Billion Color solution in the new flagship 10 Pro. This is a photography feature that allows the OnePlus 10 Pro to capture 10-bit color. You get 1,024 shades of each primary color with 10 bits and over a billion possible colors.

RAW means that these photos contain unprocessed data, unlike other formats like PNG or JPG, which are compressed.

OnePlus 10 Pro camera features
The OnePlus 10 Pro’s improved camera system has many new features. For example, OnePlus introduces Movie mode. As the name suggests, this mode will help you shoot more professional videos with a wider range of settings you can adjust. It’s similar to the Pro video modes seen on other smartphone brands.
Movie mode lets you adjust ISO, shutter speed, and many other camera settings during and before video capture. The OnePlus 10 Pro can also record in the LOG color profile with Movie mode without a preset picture profile. This provides video editors with better dynamic range and more editing possibilities.

In terms of video resolution, the OnePlus 10 Pro can record at 8K 30fps. The device can also record 4K video at 120 fps. This means that slow motion recordings will now have a much higher resolution, providing better quality. This feature is taken from the OnePlus 9 Pro. At 1080p, the 10 Pro can shoot up to 240 fps, allowing for even slower and smoother slow-motion footage.
