Blackview A100, the fastest cameraphone among its peers at $ 300
There are a lot of flash moments that are too quick to capture. For example, when you take a photo of a dancer, their rapid movements can make your camera incompetent. Either you miss the highlight altogether or you just get a blurry image. In such a context, you just want your phone to be faster for those fast moving objects or those impromptu moments. Perhaps like the ultra-fast cameraphone, Blackview A100, recently launched by the Blackview brand.
The Blackview A100 can autofocus as fast as 0.03 seconds and support burst shooting up to 10 fps (10 frames per second). This means you can take photos faster, while keeping them crisp and clear. As we all know, the focus of the image is crucial to have all the details. Otherwise, the images may become blurry and ugly. Normally, focusing on static subjects is not difficult, but getting a sharp focus on a moving subject can be a huge challenge. But not for Blackview A100.
The Blackview A100, after all, uses advanced Dual Pixel Autofocus (DPAF) technology. It is an increasingly popular feature for smartphone cameras, especially in the flagship segment of the market. Because it offers both smooth and consistent focusing for a wide variety of photo and video applications. And it’s in video that DPAF can really shine, delivering fast and precise focusing without the lens zooming in and out to seek focus. Most importantly, DPAF excels at tracking a moving subject in both video and still mode. Rarely suffering from those super frustrating times, where your camera starts searching for a new focal point.
Unlike most entry-level phones using the slow and unreliable open loop VCM system. Blackview A100 adopts closed loop VCM for much faster focusing speed and shake compensation. While taking a photo, the position sensor will immediately detect and notify the VCM to adjust if there is any camera movement. The VCM will then move the lens to the corresponding position.
All these technologies make A100 super fast for photos and stand out from the competition of its peers. Other features that make it even more exceptional for photography include HDR video, night mode and Portrait Color (artfully gray background for a studio style portrait). Which are generally reserved for flagship devices.
Some picky users may find it unsatisfying that the Blackview A100’s sensor resolution is only 12MP. But this is only part of the whole. A high pixel sensor does not necessarily give high quality images and vice versa. Take the example of the iPhone. High-end photography phones like the iPhone 11 or iPhone 12 also use “only” 12 MP sensors.
Technically, the actual number of pixels is only one factor contributing to the final image. More important is pixel quality in a camera sensor, especially when it comes to smartphone cameras. Although the Blackview A100 only has 12 MP, it has exceptional pixel quality in every pixel unit by packing a massive 1.4m pixel size. Which can capture more light and reduce the amount of noise to improve the quality of the photo. The main CMOS image sensor of the Blackview A100 (Sony® IMX362) is after all first-rate. Specifications on paper are one thing, but it’s the end result of the image that matters. Is not it ?
Another good thing about condensing the pixel count at 12MP is that it increases storage speed, as images with higher resolution usually take longer to process. Stand out with the great camera, Blackview A100 is also eye-catching in appearance. Featuring a star back, fingerprint resistant with advanced vacuum plating technology. Four stylish colors are also available. Priced at just $ 249.99, the phone comes with above-average configurations, making it an absolute performance beast.
