Capturing photos and videos, in a quick, effortless way is a must-have for smartphone users. In fact, more than 90% of consumers are using the camera in the automatic mode, which means they simply open the app, point and shoot. Knowing how important it is to capture these notable moments on the fly, Motorola is bringing new camera software updates to its portfolio.
Keeping photographers ahead of the curve, these new updates contribute to the exceptional triple high-res camera system on the motorola edge 40 pro. The main 50MP camera offers OIS, instant all-pixel focus, and large 2.0um ultra pixels that help capture photos that are crystal-clear in any light. The camera system also includes a 50MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision, 60MP front camera with Quad Pixel technology and a 12MP telephoto portrait camera with 2x optical zoom, so that consumers can take breathtaking content of everything – from stunning landscapes to extreme closeups, and even more flattering shots of people.
The camera features and what they’re all about
From image quality enhancements to new capabilities, Motorola is releasing a combination of video and camera improvements across the entire camera system. Internal data revealed that 70% of videos recorded with Motorola smartphones are less than 60 seconds. So, to help users capture content that is both momentary and memorable, Motorola has introduced a new set of features to take videos to the next level:
– Horizon Lock Stabilization: Photographers can now use the new “Horizon Lock” feature to keep the footage stabilized and automatically locked onto the horizon, even while rotating up to a full 360°. This is great for action scenarios where there would be heavy camera movement like skateboarding, skiing or kayaking.
– Video Auto Focus Tracking: Users can enable this feature to keep their subject crystal-clear and in focus even when it’s in motion throughout the frame. For example, if recording a video of a child running around, and another person enters the scene, the focus will stay locked on the original subject.
– Video Portrait (bokeh): Consumers can take videos like a professional by creating a beautiful soft focus background behind their subject. This AI-based effect is ideal for users who want a singular subject as their focal point.
– Video Night Vision: When shooting videos in low-light environments, consumers can switch to Night Vision mode for video to capture brighter footage with more detail, better clarity, and more accurate color. The AI-based algorithm applies lighting techniques to low-light scenarios, increasing the overall brightness and decreasing noise at the same time.
– Vlog mode: Motorola’s Dual Capture feature has been enhanced even more for videos. Now, when users select the Vlog mode audio icon, the picture-in-picture window only appears when voice is detected from the front side. And when someone isn’t speaking, the window automatically disappears. This allows customers to easily add commentary while recording.
Additionally, consumers can expect brilliant images and videos when using certain social media applications, which now support secondary cameras like ultrawide and telephoto, as well as features like Dual Capture, directly within apps, if applicable.
These new camera features are available in selected motorola edge smartphones, including the new motorola edge+.
