Samsung launched the new Galaxy A7 (SM-A750F) with triple rear cameras in India last month. Here we have the camera samples from the phone. The phone has a 24-megapixel primary Sony IMX576 sensor with f/1.7 aperture, secondary 8-megapixel 120° Ultra Wide Lens for wide-angle photos and a 5-megapixel camera to capture depth information for portrait shots. It also has a 24-megapixel front camera with LED flash. This combines four pixels into one pixel in low light conditions, says OnePlus.
Since this has dual rear cameras, there is Live Focus that lets you adjust the bokeh effect – the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image – to change the depth of field of a shot. You can control the intensity of the overall blur effect and apply it before taking the image in preview mode, or after capturing the photo in the Gallery app. There is selfie portrait option for the front camera that uses software to blur the background.
Since this comes with an 120° Ultra Wide Lens, you can switch between the normal 78-degree Field Of View main camera and 120-degree Field Of View wide-angle camera easily from the main sensor.
It has Auto mode, Panorama, Pro, Beauty as well as Pro mode to adjust ISO, Shutter speed, focus, white balance and exposure manually. It also comes with a new Scene Optimiser mode that can detect 19 different scenarios such as food, text, greenery, sky, flower, nightview and more & optimises each shot to give perfect picture composition. It also has AR Emoji that lets you add stickers and create your own Emoji.
Coming to the image quality, daylight shots are good and the camera captures a good amount of detail, creates really well exposed photos with good dynamic range and detailing, and dynamic range can further be improved enabling HDR mode. The autofocus speeds are fast and accurate. Macro shots are good as well. Dual-camera Live focus mode clearly blurs out the background, and the wide-angle lens is useful in several places, however the edges look a bit curved due to the lens. Low-light performance is decent, but the night mode helps.
The 24MP front camera with facial recognition technology is good for capturing selfies. Selfie flash helps in low-lighting conditions. The front camera has beautify features to adjust skin tone, spotlight and more features. It also has selfie portrait, but it is not perfect since it uses software.
