Periscope cameras are a way to provide long focal lengths in the slim form factor of a smartphone. But how do they work? A video that shows the disassembly of Oppo Reno camera could shed some light on that.
The periscope module measures only 23.5 x 11.5 x 5.73mm. It’s thin enough that it can fit into phones without creating a major hump. It’s quite small overall, so it doesn’t take up too much of the internal volume.
The module consists of three main parts: prism, lenses and sensor. The lenses come out as a unit, they are a special “D-Cut” design that helps keep the module as thin as it is. A magnetic coil moves the prism to achieve optical image stabilization.
The main wide-angle camera of the phone also has OIS, but this is traditional design. You can see both stabilization systems side by side at 2:15 in the video. The two cameras can work together to achieve 10x hybrid zoom.
We’d love to see a disassembly of Oppo Reno’s selfie camera too – it’s a pop-up camera with a unique design.
I don't get it if they claims that they are the first to announce 10x zoom how come p30 pro delivered it first and even upto 50x
Just look again.. It's for the selfie camera. https://images.indianexpress.com/2019/03/oppo-reno-case-759.jpg
hi. this periscope camera is on the back, not the front. it allows for optical zooming on one of the camera modules, not for use with selfies.
