The lack of OIS really hurt this shot:
This photo was taken with the telephoto camera that has an f/2.6 aperture lens:
Zooming on the OnePlus 5 at 2X zoom is actually a combination of optical and digital zoom because the 20MP telephoto lens can only give you a zoom factor of 1.6X. OnePlus calls it “Lossless Zoom“, see for yourself if it’s really lossless.
The photos you take with the depth effect on will be labelled “Bokeh”. I think the blurring is a little over aggressive and definitely doesn’t equal that of a full-fledged camera — you don’t get those gorgeous swirly balls from the aperture ring. However, it mostly works and can create a nice effect.
When you examine the EXIF data on the photos, however, you’ll find that it was shot on the wide-angle camera and not the telephoto. I suppose that isn’t too surprising because it doesn’t zoom in as much as the iPhone 7 Plus does. However, the angle is also not as flattering.
It also works on objects, you just need to tap to focus on your desired subject
The selfie cam is great by the way.
