The focal length increases every time you zoom in, and you can see zoomed-in images of the object that are very far and cannot be seen with other phone cameras. Vivo X30 Pro is equipped with a zoom lens with a focal length of 16mm ~ 135mm.

Camera features include super night scene, slow motion, time-lapse photography, 50mm portrait mode, filters, HDR, AI beauty, panoramic photography, 4K video, dynamic photos, and more.

Vivo X30 Pro also has a special “super moon” mode. In this mode, it is easy to take a great picture of the moon in a wider frame. You only need to place the moon in the viewfinder frame, and the phone automatically recognizes and takes the photo.
