OSCAL S60 Pro night vision camera and other cameras
8MP IR Night Vision Rear Camera
The upgraded S60 Pro boasts an 8MP rear night vision camera (Sony® IMX219) relying on two IR emitters. Like most night vision cameras, this one is going to aid users in seeing things clearly at night in low-lit environments or even complete darkness like in daytime, only everything being black and white in the camera frame.
8MP Front Camera: Beauty Mode + Mono Mode
S60 Pro is shipped with an 8MP front camera with a Sony® IMX219 sensor featuring an f2.4 aperture. Photos clicked by the 8MP camera during the day come out sharp and crisp with ample details and excellent dynamic range. Even under challenging low-lit scenarios, it manages to capture more light than ordinary mid-range rugged phones, producing images with decent saturation and little noise.
By the way, there is the Beauty Mode with which you can do pretty interesting things to your selfie like enlarging eyes, whitening skin, or slimming your face. Also, there is the Mono Mode that allows you to share creative snapshots of ultimate black and white to social media
13 MP Rear Camera: Pro Mode+Autofocus
Backed by a Sony® IMX258 sensor, S60 Pro’s 13MP rear camera features an f2.0 aperture. Pictures from this camera are fairly bright and vivid with on-point details, particularly in well-lit scenarios, and are high-res enough to be cropped down if necessary too. Another highlight of the 13 MP camera is its autofocus which enables users to produce snapshots that accentuate the important object and slightly blur the rest. Furthermore, even at 3x optical zoom, images still retain color, sharpness, and depth. But in the case of 4x, photos can look a little unsatisfactory.
Besides, a Pro Mode is provided with which users can adjust the white balance, ISO, exposure compensation, focus or shutter speed as they see fit.
It is also worth mentioning that the OSCAL S60 Pro with night vision also has an underwater mode.
