Did you know that mobile phones are the most-used photography tool in the world? This is why brands have started to cram two or more cameras on their smartphones. However, not all of them are being used properly. In fact, some are not used at all.

Just look at the new OPPO Reno10 Series 5G. These devices come with three shooters on the back. But we all know that most consumers only use the main camera, and the ultra-wide lens for trendy 0.5 shots. How about the third one? Do you even know what it is and what it’s for?

What is a telephoto lens?

In layman’s terms, a telephoto lens lets farther subjects appear closer than they actually are. This is mostly used in scenarios where it’s hard to get nearer the subject, often because of physical constraints. In photography and cinematography, a telephoto lens is defined as a “type of long-focus lens where the physical length of the lens is shorter than the actual focal length.”


The one on the Reno10 5G and Reno10 Pro 5G uses a 32-megapixel sensor with 2x optical zoom and 20x of digital zoom. Meanwhile, the one on the Reno10 Pro+ 5G is more advanced as it uses a 64-megapixel sensor with OIS with a periscope-style lens that can do 3x of optical zoom and 120x of digital zoom.

So we don’t confuse you: optical zoom means the lens’ native capability to zoom, so you still get a clear image. On the other hand, a digital zoom basically crops in on the image, that’s why you’re getting a grainier and less-appealing image.

Where can you use the telephoto lens?

There are two key things where you can use a telephoto lens. Let’s detail them out for you.

For taking professional-looking portraits

The reason why smartphone telephoto lenses have a native 2x and 3x zoom is because it is the identical equivalent of portrait lenses used in professional cameras.

This makes them great for taking portraits of human subjects, perfect if you’re shooting family events, portraits of friends, shooting your next OOTD post, or even a well-produced profile picture.


Telephoto lens is also useful for taking pictures of your products if you’re an online seller, a clean shot of your meal, gorgeous flowers, and more.


Make your portraits look extra special with the OPPO Reno10 Series 5G to stand out. The trio is equipped with OPPO’s special Portrait Mode filters that can intelligently blur the background for a DSLR-like look. In addition, it also applies different creative filters. This is all thanks to the proprietary AI Depth Algorithm.


Get closer shots without going nearer the subject

Possibly the most familiar use of telephoto lens is its zooming-in capability. It lets you get closer to a subject without physically going nearer. It’s also like having binoculars in your pocket. It lets you see really faraway objects, which is great if you want to capture scenes on your travels — or if you just have poor vision (like us), having trouble seeing the menu over the counter.

Have all these capabilities with the OPPO Reno10 Pro+ 5G, which is equipped with up to 120X of digital zoom. Paired with the advanced software and post-processing, images taken at 120x still look clear and crisp compared to other devices that have a similar feature.


With the OPPO Reno10 Series 5G, it’s not just the telephoto lens

With impressive telephoto lenses, you can expect nothing less with the rest of the cameras of the OPPO Reno10 Series 5G.

The OPPO Reno10 5G boasts a 64-megapixel main shooter, while the Reno10 Pro 5G and Reno10 Pro+ 5G share the same 50-megapixel primary cameras complete with OIS.

These cameras can take great travel photos, hangouts with friends, delicious meals, and any spontaneous moments with appealing colors, deep contrast, and clean dynamic range.


Take it through the night and these devices still deliver. Just enable the Night Mode and see how it takes a long-exposure shot for brighter and more vibrant low-light shots.


All three models come with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens for your 0.5 shots with friends, scenery, tall buildings, interiors, and other subjects that require a wide, capable lens to be captured with.


The three devices also share a similar 32-megapixel selfie camera, with the Pro models sporting autofocus capability. This means that, whichever you choose, you can take clean and attractive selfies with accurate skin tones, good contrast, and clean dynamic range — even in low-light shots.


These are the camera features you can enjoy with the OPPO Reno10 Series 5G. And now that you know how to use a telephoto lens, you can use it more and finally utilize all the camera capabilities of your smartphone.
