Grid lines

The grid (grid) helps us when taking pictures with the camera of the Oppo smartphone, and the lines allow us to orientate ourselves better to the horizon, for example when taking landscape shots.

HDR

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and in smartphone photography creates several images with different exposures one after the other. The individual photos are superimposed on top of each other and software compiles them into one photo and optimizes them in individual areas. HDR is a good choice especially for landscape photography.

On the Oppo-Smartphone HDR can be switched on or off, or alternatively there is an automatic function that decides when an HDR-photo should be taken.

Android 10 (ColorOS 7.0)
Step 1:  Open the  Camera -App
Step 2:  Tap on  HDR
Step 3:  Choose between  Off,   On  and  Auto
  1. Open the Camera-App
  2. Tap on HDR
  3. Choose between Off, On and Auto

Mirror Effect

By default, photos are taken with the front camera mirrored, which means that the photo is actually mirrored. If this is not desired, we can activate the "Flip Selfie" function, which will take the photos as they are, i.e. not mirrored.

Note: When the function is activated, the photo will still be mirrored in the viewfinder, but will be saved correctly.

Android 10 (ColorOS 7.0)
Step 1:  Open the  Camera -App
Step 2:  Open the  Menu
Step 3:  Tap on  Settings
Step 4:  Enable or Disable  Flip Selfie
  1. Open the Camera-App
  2. Open the Menu
  3. Tap on Settings
  4. Enable or Disable Flip Selfie

Watermark

On created photos we can display a watermark, whereby ColorOS does not offer us many possibilities here. As watermark, the phone model can be determined, as the date and time as well as the location. If the watermark is activated for the model, we have the possibility to determine an own stroke with up to 20 characters.

Unfortunately we have no influence on the position, color, transparency or other parameters.

Android 10 (ColorOS 7.0)
Step 1:  Open the  Camera -App
Step 2:  Open the  Menu
