But what about the cameras? This is a more in depth. Look at the camera performance you can expect out of this particular model here, so it has the 108 megapixel hmx main sensor without any optical image stabilization. It has an f 1.9 aperture. We have an 8 megapixel ultra wide, which is probably the let down of these particular cameras that has an aperture of f 2.2, and then we do have a 5 megapixel macro camera. If you’re into your macros, it can actually take an excellent shot and i’ll give you samples in this video and then the front facing camera. This is 16 megapixels, a small little cutout this one, and that has an aperture of f 2.4, just like the macro camera. As well so before i show you those photo samples, let’s have a look at the camera application here. So this is the main camera 108 megapixels. It is f 1.9, so we have an option here. If you tap for two times digital zoom two times, digital zoom photos do actually come out quite good now, five times. On the other hand, no it looks quite blurry and you can even go as far as ten times digital zoom, but i will not be using that at all very washed out looking photos so portrait mode that is self explanatory there. You can set your different background. Filter effects cinematic effects, they call it and if you go over into more here, you can see we’ve got a 108 megapixel option.
Document mode time lapse, slow motion, log exposure clone and night shot 2 can be found there now going back to the photo mode. 2. Just to show you that over here you have got a couple, other extra options: there, too movie frame time shift timed burst various different settings, and that is we can access super macro, which is that five times f 2.4 camera and you have ai options. Hdr is enabled and auto on auto by default video mode here so with the main camera we’ve got 4k 30 frames per second maximum. The ultra wide is 4k 30 sorry, 1080p, 30 maximum, with the ultra wide and the super macro camera there too. So we’ve got a two times: digital zoom maximum here, which is the maximum they will allow and now taking a look at the pro camera mode here. So we have the three different lenses we can choose from wide ultra wide macro tapping and holding will lock the exposure and the focus which is very handy to have with the pro video mode. Here too, if you go into the settings, we’ve got focus peaking, which i currently have on exposure verification 4k, 30. Max vlog is there too, and the iso can be adjusted right up to 6400. This is shooting now with the 108 megapixel camera. This is that samsung hmx with the f 1.9 aperture, no optical image, stabilization with this one. We do have that same sense with optical image, stabilization in xiaomi’s flagships and other phones like, for example, the me note 10.
So we don’t have electronic image stabilization either here with 4k, which is a real shame. Now the focus does tend to work well without too many problems. As you can see, that gets a very quick lock there on my hand, and i haven’t seen it hunting for focus at any time, maybe a little bit in low light. It could happen now the audio quality. Sadly, the bit rate is a little bit low here. It’S 96 kilobits per second instead of the 320. We have seen recently from xiaomi. So as i walk down these stairs, you can see. Yes, it is shaking all over the place so until they fix this with a firmware update, you’re going to have to use a gimbal to get nice smooth footage, but with 1080p, which i will swap over to now. We do have that electronic image stabilization now, if you’re wondering where this location is. This is the mediterranean coast of spain, a place called denya las roches, very beautiful and really good stabilization. Well, not the best. I have seen because of course, there’s no optical on here. It’S only electronic image stabilization we have, and, as i pan around here, 1080p 30 frames per second, not bad at all. Quality for 1080p, 16 megapixel, f 2.4 front facing camera. This, thankfully, does have electronic image stabilization. This is something that xiaomi has finally been doing recently. It was only about uh half a year ago that they first started to add it to their phones and has been missing for a while.
So you can see it’s, nice and smooth good, reasonable, vlog quality here. The 1080p footage is actually quite good. I’Ve looked at this on my monitor, i think it’s not a bad quality at all, so my arm is not fully extended out that’s about there, so it has a little bit of a close crop but it’s not actually too bad here, and i will just run Up again, jog up the stairs to show you that electronic image stabilization so if xiaomi can add 4k electronic image stabilization improve the audio bitrate we’ve got some very decent video quality. On the note 10 pro here – and this is now our super – steady video, which is 1080p 60 frames per second, so i’m – going to sprint up the stairs here, just to show you how reasonably steady it is, it does move around a little bit. I have noticed, and now ultra wide video with the 8 megapixel ultra wide, that one has an f, 2.2 aperture and i will test that image. Stabilization jogging up these stairs it’s it’s, not too bad, and when you pan around you don’t, tend to get too much. Jatter coming through with the 1080p footage, so you cannot record 4k with the ultra wide camera. This is 4k 30 low light and, of course, the lack of electronic image stabilization is not helping as i move along here, but holding it really still. You can see that this is actually coming out quite good panning around slowly, still quite a bit of detail, a little bit more grain to the image.
Of course. Now this sign here should actually be blue, but it’s looking a little purple to me at least on the screen there. So that is one thing with the low light there we go now it’s, actually looking blue, which is good it’s changed over and now, with the ultra wide camera, 1080p 30 frames per second again, but with its f 2.2 and just an 8 megapixel sensor, it certainly Does not look as good as the main camera a lot more grain and just less details a bit blurry overall, very difficult conditions, of course – and this is what you can expect with the front facing camera as well, with low light video quality that um i’ve actually Seen worse, this is not too bad at all, considering it’s a mid range phone, obviously more grain and a little bit more blurry, and it does sound muffled because i’m wearing the mask here of Music Applause course: Music, Applause, Music, Music, Music, Music, Music. So all up, i think, for the price of this phone. Definitely the main camera can take an excellent, highly detailed. Still thanks to the pixel binning, the 108 megapixels it’s got the f 1.9 aperture as well isn’t too bad. Now we do see lower on other phones, but all up they can take an excellent night photo as you’ve seen from my samples now a little bit of a tip here that when you take the night stills, you really do want to hold this one quite steady.
As steady as possible to let the shutter rate, of course, get that shot and it will be stitching together a few different shots at the same time. So it has the optical image stabilization, and that means that any trimmers that come through will result in a blurry image there so that’s why you have to be extra still with that one. There now lots of details when you take a look at the macro shots and when you take a look at also as well and just the general detail you get in those 108 megapixel stills you’ve got the 108 megapixel mode, really really good there. Now the ultra wide is probably the let down the ultra wide isn’t amazing it’s, eight megapixels, and i really wish they’d gone with a 13 megapixel or even a 16 megapixel ultrawide with autofocus instead of the macro camera would have been great there. Now the video quality 4k is sharp. It looks decent it’s good, but that lack of the image stabilization being electronic there uh does ruin the quality. Really. The footage is not usable unless you use a gimbal or you plan to just mount it on a tripod or you’re, not going to walk around you hold it as still as possible and move and pan very, very slowly there. I do hope that this is correctable with a firmware update from redmi that they can just add the electronic image stabilization and then let’s talk a little bit about the audio quality as well.
It sounds flat and a little scratchy to me. It has a low bit rate of 96 kilobits per second versus the typical that we normally get now with the flagships, at least from redmi and from xiaomi being 320 kilobits per second. I do hope that i can at least set the bit rate on the audio to 192.. So all up the redmi note 10 pro here, i think, it’s, a very, very solid, offering the portrait photos do look. Excellent stitching could be a little bit better with the front facing camera. Definitely, but i don’t think you can go wrong with this model. It offers some of the best low light performance, solid, great 108 megapixel sensor, and it does come recommended for the cameras for the better life, so make sure you do check out the full review of posted of this redmi. Note 10 pro here, because it is an absolute value champion and one of my favorites so far this year.
