Redmi K30 camera specs

As for the camera, the Redmi K30 uses a quad rear cameras scheme, and the main camera adopts the Sony IMX686 image sensor, which can directly output photos and RAW formats of 9248 x 6944 pixels, and has four-in-one 1.6 micron unit pixels. In addition, the Sony IMX686 has an extremely large photosensitive area of 1/1.7 inches, an F/1.89 aperture and a 6P lens, so it has both large size and high pixels.

The other three lenses are 8 million-pixel 120 degree ultra-wide-angle lens, f/2.2 aperture; 2 million-pixel 2cm ultra-macro lens, f/2.4-aperture, and 2 million-pixel portrait depth-of-field lens, f/2.4 aperture.

The front camera adopts a double-shot combination scheme, with a 20 million-pixel beauty lens as the main shot and a 2 million pixels portrait lens as the secondary photo.

Even on cloudy days, the resolution of the main photograph of Redmi K30 does not decrease due to lack of light, and the white balance is accurate.

In the default camera mode, the picture is still very clear.

The texture of the floor below this photo is clearly visible, and there is no blur on the distant walls, and the details are in place.

It should be noted that the HDR mode is not supported under 64MP mode. After turning on HDR, the dynamic range of photos has been significantly improved.

However, in ultra-wide-angle mode, the resolution of the photo decreased obviously, there was a lot of noise in the windows, some changes in the color of the sky, and the middle roof was slightly distorted, but the overall look was good.

In 2x zoom mode, the resolution of the photo is also very good, but the distant building sharpens a little too much.

The 2cm ultra-macro lens can capture more details of the flowers, and the texture of the petals can be seen clearly.

In the evening, when the light is weak, the 64MP camera can still perform well thanks to the advantage of the large size image sensor.

Even if the night scene mode is not open, the 64MP main camera has a good control of the highlights, and the originally bright lights have been well suppressed.

When the night scene mode is turned on, the brightness of the darker places will increase, the details will be restored very well, and the brightness of the lights will be suppressed very low, but there is a ghost in the Logo of Agricultural Bank of China on the upper left, but it is not serious, because every mobile phone may encounter a similar situation.

The Night view mode only supports 1X and 2X zoom. Even if the 2X zoom is turned on, the picture is still clear and there is no decline in resolution.

Redmi K30 supports real-time converting voice into caption in video recording

In addition, the video recording function of Redmi K30 supports the function of converting voice into subtitles in real time. After personal experience, as long as your Mandarin is standard enough, it can recognize it accurately, and even if you identify errors, you can correct them manually. Of course, you can also choose to hide the caption.

Thanks to the large size Sony IMX 686 image sensor, it can increase the light input and generate high-quality photos. According the camera samples, we can see that the Sony IMX 686 image sensor is really very powerful and it will become the mainstream images senor of Android flagship phones. Moreover, the live caption function in video recording is also a very useful feature for us. But it would be better if we can add different colors for caption.
