You most likely think about the impacts that you can attain with the new handset - things like post-catch specific center the Ufocus characteristic with its included "bokeh" impact, the foregrounder and drawing characteristics, and the parallax impact you can add to pictures. Presently, notwithstanding, Anandtech took a much deeper plunge in the particulars of the cameras on the new HTC leader, finding some intriguing nuances and points of interest.
To begin with, we should remind you, that the new One (M8) utilizes the same Ultrapixel innovation as the first One (M7) from a year ago. That is to say, it utilizes a 4-megapixel camera with a much-bigger than-normal 2.0µm pixel size. Doing a reversal to the first one, HTC needed to utilize two suppliers for its Ultrapixel camera - ST Microelectronics with its Vd68969 sensor and Omnivision with the Ov4688 camera sensor. Interestingly enough, the new HTC One (M8) appears to have exchanged to utilizing the Omnivision sensor only. Hypotheses are that there were quality control issues with the ST Microelectronics sensor, and that is the reason HTC went full-on with California-based Omnivision, yet one never recognizes what the real reasons are.
What's considerably additionally intriguing, however, is that Anand discovered what the auxiliary camera the one on the top in the "Couple" setup is. It would seem HTC is utilizing the front confronting camera sensor from the HTC One (M7) as a profundity camera in the M8. The same 2.1-megapixel Omnivision Ov2722 1.4µm, 1/5.8" sensor sits right on the fundamental "Ultrapixel" module.
Burrowing further, it is uncovered that pictures caught with the "Couple" cameras turn out 60% bigger than pictures shot on simply the Ultrapixel camera alone. Anand conjectures that this is because of the way that the second camera catches profundity data, as well as a stealth picture utilized for the impacts. Additionally, estimations are that 40% of that extra picture data originates from the picture shot on the optional camera and the remaining 60% - from profundity data, again caught from the auxiliary camera.
At last, its worth specifying that the auxiliary camera in the Duo camera setup does not generally work. In low-lit conditions, and in macro photography, the optional camera simply won't fire - you will even now get a picture, yet simply from the primary Ultrapixel camera. With everything taken into account, this adds significantly more clarity to the new camera innovation utilized within the HTC One (M8).
