Oppo show of the advantages of the Oppo N1 rotating camera compared to the iPhone 5S.
Oppo are carving out a place for themselves as an upmarket Chinese phone manufacturer leant towards bringing quality imaging capabilities to their range. It started with the 13 mega-pixel Sony sensor on the Find 5, and continues with the Oppo Ulike2, R819 and the Oppo N1.
The rotating camera on the N1 received a bit of grief from some at launch, some suggesting it as being a gimmick, but there is no denying that there are certain benefits of this setup.
To show off how much more convenient the Oppo N1 camera is, Oppo have released these images showing the differences between the N1 and the iPhone 5S.
The first images are suggesting that a rotating camera is more convenient to capture photos when your subject is unaware. Obviously great for capturing spontaneous photos, but it also suggest the camera could be used in less wholesome ways.
The rest of the images go on to show how much more convenient and relaxing the N1 camera is compared to the iPhone 5s, or any ‘regular’ camera phone for that matter.
Taking photos over the heads of others will be less of pot luck guessing.
And taking accurate close up photos will be easier and more rewarding.
I have to agree that the rotating camera idea is growing on me, but I still don’t understand the need to make the phone so long and wide. Perhaps a 5.5-inch display on the N1 than enlarging the N2 to a 5.9-inch would have been more wise?
