The xiaomi mi Redmi cảnh báo 10 Pro is a good example of a điện thoại cảm ứng that is also a good camera lớn always have with you, and was, at launch, a good example of xiaomi mi taking camera image chất lượng seriously.

Saying a điện thoại can shoot 4K đoạn clip at 30fps does not mean it can always shoot 4K at 30fps. Knowing how each camera/sensor works with video is a key part of understanding your smartphone.

Introduced in 2021 as “The 108MP Voyager” the mi Redmi note 10 Pro is a mid-range smartphone and one of the first offering a 108MP sensor developed by Samsung. That sensor sets this mã sản phẩm apart from most of its competitors in the segment – still today – và that’s one of the reasons why I acquired the chú ý 10 Pro, when moving from my previous Redmi model. Not just that as another feature from this model interested me: the 5MP telemacro camera/sensor, with an aperture of f/2.4 & autofocus.

The xiaomi mi Redmi lưu ý 10 Pro has a quad set of cameras: 108MP, 8MP, 5MP và 2MP. The main camera/lens is a 26mm (wide) f/1.9, paired with 1 /1.52” sensor form size with 108 MP, with 0.7μm pixel size. The 8MP ultra wide-angle camera with an aperture of f/2.2 và focus fixed at infinity is next, followed by the 5MP telemacro camera with an aperture of f/2.4 và AF, and finally the 2MP depth sensor at f/2.4.

The main camera, which is the one you’ll use the most, is, according lớn Xiaomi, equipped with dual native ISO, with higher dynamic range, richer details, and professional noise control. With 9-in-1 binning technology, the pixels are combined into larger 2.1μm pixels, increasing light sensitivity by 900%, according to lớn Xiaomi’s numbers. Night mode 2.0 with RAW multi-frame effectively reduces noise & delivers ultra-sharp night images.

A 108MP sensor delivers 12MP photos

The 108 MP sensor uses, as noted above, pixel-binning & delivers 12MP final photos as most cameras in smartphones. It’s always possible khổng lồ shoot photos at 108 MP (for a tệp tin with 12000×9000 pixels that requires lots of space in your card or internal memory), but you’ll mostly shoot for 12 MP, which is deemed enough for most subjects. After all, my first DSLR from Canon had only 3.2MP và I used it professionally for quite a while. Still, I will leave the discussion about resolution for another day, as the subject here is video, và how it works with the different sets of camera/lens/sensor.

Xiaomi does say the Redmi cảnh báo 10 Pro captures 4K 3840×2160 at 30fps, 1080p 1920×1080 at 30fps/60fps and 720p 1280×720 at 30fps and adds that a series of functions are available: video clones, Dual video, ShootSteady, Pro time-lapse video, Telemacro time-lapse video and video macro mode. Some of these modes are useful, but here comes a chú ý for those who may think that everything works with 4K: it doesn’t work that way.

In fact, the Redmi note 10 Pro only captures 4K at 30fps videos with its primary camera, which is also the only one able lớn shoot 1080p at 60fps. The ultrawide & the macro cameras only shoot 1080p at 30fps video. If you can’t remember which camera does what, it is convenient to check the interface, because if for some reason you change lenses, for example, you might over shooting at a resolution different from what you intend to. I know that from experience…

Different lenses, different resolutions

Imagine you start shooting with the wide-angle, at 4K, but then decide to move khổng lồ the ultra wide-angle but forget to xuất hiện the interface to kiểm tra video resolution: you’ll kết thúc up with footage shot both at 4K và 1080p, probably not what you intended to. It’s important to remember that as smartphones work differently from regular cameras, and each lens is paired with a specific sensor, resolution may change when… changing lenses. Things may be different in the future, though, as new điện thoại thông minh models – lượt thích the upcoming xiaomi mi 12 Pro, with three 50MP sensors – suggest. Maybe then the đoạn clip capture resolution will be the same, independently of the camera/sensor chosen.

Now, as you may have guessed, if you are shooting đoạn phim and hope lớn use both the wide-angle & the macro lens in the xiaomi mi Redmi chú ý 10 Pro, you’ve a problem if you need khổng lồ shoot everything in 4K. As soon as you select the telemacro shooter, you’re working at 1080p, that’s 1920×1080 at 30fps. Not even 60fps, which may be needed for some subjects – like insects – if you want lớn play with tốc độ in postproduction.

As I want to lớn use the xiaomi Redmi note 10 Pro for shooting bugs, I opted for a solution that solves all the problems I faced with different sensors offering different resolutions: an external lens, a macro lens that allows me khổng lồ use the 108MP sensor & capture 4K at 30fps videos all the time. This works in both the regular clip mode and also when using the Pro mode of the Camera tiện ích from the smartphone.

Using an external macro lens for video

Second situation I was faced with: when using an app like Filmic Pro, I can not access the telemacro shooter, even if I want lớn shoot at 1080p. The app does allow me to use some of the lenses available on the mi Redmi cảnh báo 10 Pro, but the macro does not appear in the options (if there is a way, I did not find it). Here, again, the external macro lens used with an adapter solved my problem, with the extra feature of allowing me lớn use 24fps, from Filmic Pro, if I want to. Và because I am using the main lens, I am working with the 108MP binned khổng lồ give me 12MP final images, which is better than the 5MP telemacro (a 50mm lens) the điện thoại thông minh offers. It’s a win-win situation!

Xiaomi announced recently its 11 series, & one thing that surprised me is the fact that the mi Redmi chú ý 11 Pro only has a 2MP macro camera, which is laughable. 2MP? Really? For anyone interested in using the smartphone’s telemacro, 5MP is the minimum. In fact, for practical reasons – it’s there và easy khổng lồ activate – I’ve discovered I use the 5MP telemacro many times, as it gives me 1920×1080 video. So, despite being from 2021, the mi Redmi cảnh báo 10 Pro continues to lớn be a competitive choice if you’re looking for a good camera. And its price is coming down, as everybody wants the new, shiny, but less powerful in terms of camera, mi Redmi cảnh báo 11 Pro.

One final lưu ý related lớn video: the Pro mode in the mi Redmi note 10 Pro allows control over a series of features that include everything from shutter speed, ISO, EV and WB, adjustment of the metering mode (center-weighted, frame average and spot) and even manual focus (which works great for macro). The interface also includes an exposure verification tool (zebra stripes) and focus peaking, besides LOG.
