One of the most talked about features of the new HTC One is the “UltraPixel” camera. Designed around the idea that smartphones are the primary camera for many people, the HTC UltraPixel camera delivers an advanced CMOS sensor and optical lens system that captures more light per pixel than other leading smartphones.
This first photo, taken by Eric, shows the benefits capturing eight frames per second at full resolution. This allows photographers to freeze the perfect moment in time, like the instant this coin hits the mirror and bounces back up. To put this into context, Nikon’s new Coolpix A camera can capture four frames per second and costs $1100.
Who doesn’t love a good macro shot? The HTC One has a dedicated macro mode that allows it to capture significant detail up close. In this photo from Rick, you can actually see the raised surfaces on the marbles in the foreground. In this example you can see the HTC One UltraPixel camera provides enough bokeh to pull focus onto the front marbles.
The image sensor on the HTC One excels at capturing color and texture. This photo from Eric of a peacock feather is vibrant and captures the iridescent shimmer that makes these beautiful animals so captivating to watch.
Portrait photography requires good lighting, a cooperative subject, and a camera capable of capturing enough facial detail to make the image compelling, like in this image taken by Rick. The HTC One camera allows you to adjust a variety of settings (exposure, contrast, saturation, sharpness, ISO, white balance, etc.), and does light metering based on where you touch the image. This allows you to explore how to best capture your portrait subject.
