Filipinos will surely make any occasion a big event. We spare no effort to make any celebrations and festivals as memorable — if not more — than the last one.

With that, expect no less with the upcoming Flores de Mayo — a month-long celebration of the country’s devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. During this time, towns get adorned in vibrant colors, churches are packed with a kaleidoscope of flowers, and folks will come together to celebrate fiestas.


Other than the gastronomic delights, singing and dancing are given with brand performances and contests to cap off the night. For a lot of people, the most exciting part is the Santacruzan, which is a grand parade of men and women dressed like kings and queens to commemorate Saint Helena’s quest for the Sacred Cross.

For this year’s Flores de Mayo, take your merrymaking to the next level, and don’t just immerse yourself in all the festivities. Even better, capture all the story and glory of the festivities in their vibrant colors and beauty using the vivo V27 Series, the Aura Portrait Master. Thanks to its new and advanced camera features, the new V27 line will allow you to preserve in posterity all and every special moment of your Flores de Mayo that you can relive even years after.

One, two, three…say Reyna!


Is your friend, sibling, or cousin part of the Santacruzan and you’re the designated photographer? Or are you just a bystander admiring the parade?

Either way, the vivo V27 series will surely allow you to capture all the stunning ladies in their dazzling gowns and their dashing escorts. Thanks to its most advanced camera yet, vivo has made it possible to take great, studio-quality photos of all the queens in their spending aura with only just a smartphone — no professional camera needed!


The vivo V27 series comes with a first-of-its-kind Aura Portrait Algorithm, a camera system made possible by three technologies: the Sony IMX766V sensor, the Aura Light, and the company’s Advanced Portrait Mode.

One of vivo’s newest and largest camera sensors, the Sony IMX766V, boosts the image quality and vibrance by increasing the amount of light it absorbs by six times when images are taken at low-light conditions. This helps yield images that look bright and vivid.

Meanwhile, the Aura Light is essentially an upgraded camera flash that looks and works like a ring light, which was designed specifically for taking portraits. This can evenly light up a subject’s face for richer facial details and more refined skin tones.

The new Sony IMX766V sensor and the Aura Light, when combined, will make your portraits reflect the natural beauty of all the queens in the procession and their escorts, as well as the colors and intricate details of their dresses, arcs, and flowers.


On the software side, vivo’s Advanced Portrait Mode can further enrich photo quality. Supported by the company’s exclusive Portrait Algorithm, this feature retouches and beautifies each photo using vivo’s AI algorithm that will give each subject a more initial and healthier appearance without being guilty of exaggerated enhancements.

The mode also supports a new Low-Light Portrait feature that can add tones to the background to ensure that they are more radiant and shows stunning details and emotions. The new Portrait Mode is working harmoniously with the Aura Light — a feature that ordinary smartphone cameras are yet to make possible.

Thanks to the Aura Portrait Algorithm, all the professional, studio-level photos you want to take can already be done at your fingertips using a smartphone that you can fit in your pocket. Make sure you capture and relive all the special moments of your town’s Santacruzan using your new and powerful vivo V27 series.

Film, edit, and post


If you feel like the photos you’ve taken are nearly not enough to chronicle the beauty and grandeur of your Flores de Mayo festivities, we’re certain that videos will. Thankfully, the vivo V27 series packs an EIS + OIS Dual-Ultra Stabilization feature to help you record parades and street performance with great stability. This feature can help reduce shakes and jitters when filming so you can highlight the smiles and elegance of the Santacruzan queens better.

Did the celebrations or the parade run really long? Enable the device’s Super Night Video feature to ensure that your clips will still look clear and detailed even after the sun sets or the celebration extends into the night.


Now that you’ve got all the clips you need, it’s time to use another vivo-exclusive feature: the Vlog Movie Creator, which can help you piece them all together to form one fantastic vlog.

Stitch your content without the fuss and hassle. Thanks to the vivo v27 series’ easy-to-use techniques and built-in video effects and features, you can share your Flores de Mayo experience with friends and followers as if they were there with you.

It’s time to take advantage of this month-long celebration to show off your video and photography prowess. Thanks to the vivo V27 series’ advanced camera features, you will definitely capture and share every glorious moment of all celebrations coming this May.
