OnePlus took the wraps off the 10 Pro a lot earlier within the yr, however I’ve solely now been in a position to truly use it. It’s the corporate’s new flagship cellphone, together with among the high-end specs seen in different 2022 flagship telephones, comparable to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, a wonderful 6.7-inch show, 5G, Android 12, quick charging… the checklist goes on.

    6:17

    But it is the digital camera I’m significantly enthusiastic about. Not simply because I’m a photographer, however as a result of OnePlus telephones have sometimes had cameras which might be respectable — however not nice. And with the 10 Pro, OnePlus is hoping to up its recreation. You’ll discover three cameras on the again: a 48-megapixel major sensor, a 50-megapixel ultrawide and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens providing 3.3x optical zoom. From left to proper, the Pixel 6 Pro, the OnePlus 10 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro.

    All of which sounds nice. However, I’ve bought this cellphone fairly early, and OnePlus has insisted that I solely use the principle digital camera for now. The remainder of the brand new capabilities, comparable to evening mode, portrait mode, panorama and use of both of the opposite cameras should watch for our extra in-depth evaluation quickly. With that in thoughts, I pocketed among the 10 Pro’s major rivals and headed to Scotland’s stunning coastal city of St. Monans to begin the check. Photo from the OnePlus 10 Pro.

    My first shot was this pretty scene overlooking the harbor. The OnePlus 10 Pro did an amazing job right here, with pure colours and a delightful degree of distinction. The Pixel’s picture had related colours and distinction whereas the iPhone’s had a slight shift in colour tone and it appears a contact darker. Photo from the OnePlus 10 Pro.

    Adjusting my place, I discovered this pretty scene utilizing one of many fishing buoys as foreground. Again, I just like the OnePlus’ shot right here, whereas the iPhone’s is trying a bit darker and the S22 Ultra’s shot is rather more vivid and punchy, which you may favor but it surely’s undoubtedly much less natural-looking in my view.Pixel 6 Pro

    Then there’s the Pixel’s, which might be my favourite from this explicit check because of its general stunning colours and even distinction. One function OnePlus mentioned I can use is Pro Mode, and which means I can use its new Raw Plus format, which makes use of computational methods like HDR however nonetheless provides a DNG uncooked file for simpler modifying. It’s just about the identical factor as Apple’s ProRaw and I’m an enormous fan of the pliability it provides me to regulate colours and publicity in apps like Adobe Lightroom.OnePlus 10 Pro uncooked picture, edited in Lightroom.

    That let me take the uncooked model of the buoy picture and produce a extra suave shot that I’m actually happy with, with stunning colours however sustaining that publicity stability between the brighter sky and shadowy foreground.OnePlus 10 Pro uncooked picture, edited in Lightroom.

    And I’ve performed the identical right here, taking a reasonably drab shot and injecting a bit extra life into it in Lightroom.OnePlus 10 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro, Galaxy S22 Ultra comparability.

    I then moved across the bay to {photograph} this superb zigzag breakwater that juts into the water. The OnePlus 10 Pro did an amazing job balancing the difficult publicity, and I believe its shot is just about on a par with what I bought from the iPhone, with the S22 Ultra’s picture trying a bit extra cool and contrasty.OnePlus 10 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro, Galaxy S22 Ultra comparability.

    And that is precisely the identical factor I discovered on these superb rocks that arc their approach into the body. The pictures from the OnePlus 10 Pro, the iPhone 13 Pro and the Pixel 6 Pro are all properly balanced with fairly related pure colours whereas the S22 Ultra has gone a bit colder and punchier.OnePlus 10 Pro uncooked picture vs. Lightroom edit.

    And that is the form of look I’d like so as to add in modifying if I need to, fairly than have the digital camera do it by default. In reality I switched to uncooked plus within the Pro mode once more right here on the OnePlus and I actually like this moody black-and-white edit I made on this scene. It’s pin-sharp and the quantity of dynamic vary captured meant I used to be simply in a position to elevate the shadows on the rocks and management that vivid sky.OnePlus 10 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro, Galaxy S22 Ultra comparability.

    But the OnePlus is not at all times spot on with its colours — I discovered this pretty scene by crouching down within the waves that put some massive rocks within the foreground and I discovered that the OnePlus’s shot was fairly overly heat right here, particularly when seen in opposition to the persistently cool tones of the S22 Ultra. The iPhone’s shot struck extra of a stability to my eye and I believe it achieved a better-looking picture right here in consequence.From the OnePlus 10 Pro.

    I additionally discovered close-up to be barely problematic for the OnePlus, with this macro shot having quite a lot of lens blur across the fringe of the picture. That lens blur is far much less noticeable on the iPhone 13 Pro’s picture.But general I’m impressed with how the OnePlus has carried out on this early check. It’s troublesome to say it is any higher or worse than its rivals, a minimum of at this level, but it surely’s definitely up there with them based mostly on what I’ve seen to date. Of course, we’ll must put issues like evening mode, portrait mode, its varied new Hasselblad colour modes and the telephoto and ultrawide lenses to the check as properly to see how the entire digital camera expertise stacks up, however for now that should watch for our full evaluation.
