How to Find Freedom: Quark Henares’ Newest Short Film, Shot via OPPO Find X5 Pro
Here’s how the flagship device’s camera features empower the renowned director’s creativity
Smartphone fans were treated to a delightful experience last month when the global smart device brand OPPO presented the OPPO Find X5 Pro, designed to empower every moment. This time, renowned director Quark Henares took the state-of-the-art camera system by producing a short film using this flagship device!
Released officially last June 27, 2022, the mini-film titled ‘How to Find Freedom’ banners Maxene Magalona and Kaila Estrada. It shows how you can step out of your comfort zone and rediscover the world by empowering every moment.
If you are one of those awed by its remarkable yet vividly captured night scenes and are ecstatic to find out what empowered Henares’ creativity as he leveraged the device, here are the camera features integrated into the OPPO Find X5 Pro.
Dual flagship rear cameras enabled by MariSilicon X for night scenes
The OPPO Find X5 Pro’s rear camera system boasts a 13MP telecamera and dual flagship cameras, consisting of 50MP ultra-wide and wide cameras. Enabled by the Sony IMX 766 sensors, both cameras allow users to take videos at 10-bit, consistently and accurately capturing one billion colors. Such flagship cameras also feature glass lenses to enhance color precision while removing chromatic aberrations.
What’s more, is that the dual flagship cameras feature OPPO’s self-developed imaging neural processing unit (NPU). Known as MariSilicon X, it can deliver an AI computing power of up to 18 Tera Operations per Second (TOPS) and has a power efficiency of 11.6 TOPS/W. It realizes the 4K Night Video of the OPPO Find X5 Pro, empowering the flagship device to record every frame of users’ night videos as excellent as a still photo.
Other than that, MariSilicon X’s powerful image signal processor (ISP) enables users to capture HDR videos in a 20-bit, 120-dB dynamic range. It also supports real-time RAW processing.
Pro-level five-axis OIS for stable shots
The OPPO Find X5 Series also leverages a five-axis optical image stabilization (OIS). With this, users can have pro-level stabilization, along with three-axis sensor-shift, two-axis lens-shift OIS, and three-degree anti-shake.
This feature is enhanced by OPPO’s algorithms, enabling users to capture clearer shots and more stable videos, even if they are recording action scenes.
Accurate color with the 13-channel spectral sensor
Instead of the past five-channel RGBCW, the flagship device is now packed with a 13-channel spectral sensor for more precise detection of the scene’s color spectrum. Combined with an upgraded AWB algorithm, the rear cameras of OPPO Find X5 Pro can capture the different colors of each scene accurately and even the natural skin tones of the subjects, empowering users to record exactly every moment.
Boosting creativity with the Hasselblad Camera for Mobile
In partnership with Hasselblad, OPPO also integrates the Hasselblad Camera for Mobile in the OPPO Find X5 Pro. As it adopts Hasselblad’s user interface and leaf shutter sound, the flagship device supports the Natural Color Calibration to deliver every shot with natural colors. Other than that, it provides a range of master filters that automatically give professional color and style to photos, boosting users’ creativity.
Indeed, the OPPO Find X5 Pro will never fail to empower one’s creativity with its high-end camera system. If you have not yet seen Henares’ new short film with OPPO, you can watch it via this link.

OPPO Unveils Reno8 T: Elevating Photography with 100MP Portrait Camera and Sleek Fiberglass-Leather Aesthetics #OPPOReno8T
OPPO announced the arrival of the new OPPO Reno8 T in the Philippines. Equipped with an unprecedented 100MP Portrait Camera, a cutting-edge Fiberglass-Leather Design, 8GB RAM expandable by up to another 8GB, 256GB ROM and 48-Month Fluency Protection, the OPPO Reno8 T delivers all-round upgrades in a stylish device which ensures incredible experiences in both camera and entertainment while maintaining smooth performance at all times.
“We at OPPO are so excited to be introducing the latest addition to The Portrait Expert series, the OPPO Reno8 T,” shares Joanarc Sales, OPPO Philippines’ Head of CRM and Public Relations. “In keeping with our commitment to providing our users superior imaging and performance capabilities in our devices, the new OPPO Reno8 T is a breakthrough product that promises an extraordinary, all-round smartphone experience.”
Capture the World in Unprecedented Detail with the Upgraded 100MP Portrait Camera
The OPPO Reno8 T is the first Reno series phone to include a 100MP Portrait Camera, which is featured alongside a 32MP Selfie Camera and a 2MP Microlens with 20x or 40x magnification.
With the 100MP Portrait Camera, users can take high-quality portraits with more clarity and detail while enjoying the freedom to crop and enlarge photos to reimagine their images.
The Microlens of the OPPO Reno8 T also enables users to capture surprising visual images usually hidden in plain sight through 40-times magnification, offering unprecedented access to microscopic photography capabilities.

All-new Upgraded Design with a Premium Texture
Continuing the classic design elements of the Reno series, the OPPO Reno8 T introduces two fresh colors: Sunset Orange and Midnight Black.
Sunset Orange is a vibrant orange color tone with a premium leather texture, created using an upgraded Fiberglass-Leather Design. The back cover’s Fiberglass-Leather Design uses a new technique to enable the removal of plastic edging, resulting in a thinner and lighter cover than traditional leather-like battery covers. This design created a premium experience through a unified design brought by more rounded edges without sacrificing durability. The super-premium appearance is inspired by luxury leather goods, with a textured pattern that simulates the effect of leather stitching using an embossing process that is being used for the first time on Reno8 T.
Meanwhile, the Midnight Black edition features a remodeled version of OPPO Glow that gives the handset a silky-smooth touch.
A decorative reflective ring has also been added to the camera module to create a shinier appearance that resembles stars twinkling in depths of the universe. In addition, the upgraded OPPO Orbit Light provides eight different notification settings which can be personalized with eight different colors.
OPPO Reno8 T boasts an Ultra-Slim Body Design with Midnight Black only 7.80mm thickness and weighs about 180 g, while Sunset Orange weighs about 183 g and has a thickness of 7.85mm.
Superior Performance for an All-round Smooth Experience
OPPO has completely overhauled the performance of the Reno8 T and implemented multiple features to guarantee users a smoother experience for longer. Among these is the OPPO-developed Dynamic Computing Engine, which provides a smoother and more stable operating system to fundamentally improve the user experience. OPPO Labs have specifically tested the Reno8 T for 48-Month Fluency Protection to ensure it maintains a high degree of operating fluency even after four years of use.
With its high-capacity 5000mAh battery and 33W SUPERVOOCTM charging technology, Reno8 T can be charged from 0 to 100% in just 67 minutes or offers 2.01 hours talk with a 5-minute charge. It comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB ROM as the standard specification with the option to expand up to 8GB more RAM using OPPO’s RAM Expansion technology.
Delivering exceptional visual entertainment on Reno8 T is a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate, while on the audio side, a Dual Stereo Speaker provides surround sound for a more immersive gaming and movie experience, with its built-in Ultra Volume Mode boosting the maximum volume by an additional 40%.
Convenience and Security in New ColorOS 13
Reno8 T is powered by the latest edition of ColorOS 13, which brings users even more smart features in a concise, convenient, and secured Android experience.
Users can now control Spotify from the Always-On Display, choosing to play or pause music, or select playlists from the recommendations section without unlocking the phone. Moreover, Screen Translate built with Google Lens can now translate the content of an entire screen in just one click from the sidebar menu, rather than having to switch between different apps manually.
A number of enhancements to security and privacy have been updated in the latest ColorOS 13. Auto Pixelate can automatically recognize and pixelate sensitive information on chat message screenshots with just one click, while the Private Safe has been refined to reduce the risk of losing or disclosing password-protected data.
In Sunset Orange and Midnight Black, the OPPO Reno8 T will soon be available in the Philippines. Stay tuned to https://www.oppo.com/ph/ or check out OPPO Philippines’ official social media pages on Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok for details on the official release.
 Based on tests performed at OPPO Labs. “100%” is defined as when the battery level displayed on the screen reaches 100%. The actual charging time may vary depending on differences in environments or on individual devices (such as external temperature variations and battery age).
