Sony IMX766 Performance Review on OPPO Reno5 Pro+

Sony IMX766 Performance Review – Oppo Reno5 Pro+ Camera Review

Late last month, OPPO brought out the Reno5 series of mega-cup players – OPPO Reno5 Pro+, a mega-cup phone with the flagship sensor Sony IMX766 jointly developed with Sony, equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 flagship platform, supporting 65W fast charging. The artist’s custom version is also the world’s first mass-produced electrochromic technology, full of material. Another highlight is that as a Snapdragon 865 flagship model with a highly acclaimed face, the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ starts at just ¥3,999 (about ₹45,000/$618), making it a veritable real-deal machine after its release.

The Reno5 Pro+ review also provides an in-depth experience of performance, battery, and photography. Today, we review Sony IMX766 performance on Oppo Reno5 Pro+ originally published on IT Home, a brief look at the shooting experience brought by the IMX766 main camera around the still image section of the Reno5 Pro+.

The OPPO Reno5 Pro+ comes with a quad rear camera combo that includes: 50MP IMX766 main camera, a 16MP wide-angle lens, a 13MP 5x hybrid light zoom telephoto lens, and a 2MP macro lens. The main camera is very impressive, are OPPO and Sony jointly developed the flagship sensor IMX766, with 1/1.56-inch large base, a single 1.0μm large pixels, with self-developed moonlight night video algorithm, the amount of light into the IMX586 compared to 63.8% increase, video shooting brighter and clearer.

Besides, OPPO Reno5 Pro+ supports DOL-HDR digital overlap high dynamic range technology, which improves the dynamic range and image quality of video shooting by 200% and effectively relieves motion trailing; together with Live HDR video algorithm, video recording is what you see. The unique 2×2 pixel structure allows faster and more accurate focusing and supports video lock focus, which automatically locks onto the subject and predicts movement trends in real-time for more stable focusing. Let’s look at the sample performance directly.

The OPPO Reno5 Pro+’s still images continue OPPO’s usual style of realistic reproduction, where what you see is what you see, and the exposure control is excellent. Thanks to the 1/1.56-inch large base of the main camera and the single 1.0μm large pixel, OPPO Reno5 Pro+ can present high dynamic range samples in some dark environments and large light ratios, especially in low light night environments, and with the night mode on, it can significantly reduce the image noise and bring the purity and brightness of the samples up a few notches.

The newest addition to the lineup is the DOL-HDR algorithm, which makes the HDR imaging faster in special shooting scenarios such as large light ratios, and even solves the problem of “motion residuals” to a certain extent, resulting in a higher film rate at night scenes.

The IMX766 is still a flagship in night scenes, with a better color reproduction of bright neon lights and suppression of highlights in complex lighting environments at night.

In the default mode, the system will automatically help you turn on the night mode according to the surrounding lighting environment. The brightness of the night mode sample is obviously a step up, and the overall dynamic range of the image is higher, but it is interesting to compare that the colors of the night scene taken in normal mode are a bit more vivid than the night mode.

The Reno5 series also brings the “Video Night View” mode for video shooting. When the “AI” button in the phone shooting interface is pressed, the system will automatically identify the shooting environment and automatically open the video night view mode.

In contrast, the overall brightness of the video night scene screen is significantly higher and purer. In some extreme low light environment, this function is still very necessary.

The OPPO Reno5 Pro+ also has a very good focusing speed when taking photos, even with some particularly thin objects (such as pens, branches, fingers, etc.), the OPPO Reno5 Pro+ can also achieve easy focus, basically without the phenomenon of wind box.

This fast focus is not only experienced in photography but also some dynamic videos. When the subject being shot in front of the lens is switched, the lens can also achieve accurate focus at the first time, which is a very practical feature for those who often shoot videos, so you don’t need to manually focus by clicking the screen frequently when shooting videos.


OPPO Reno5 Pro+ or Sony IMX766 performance in photography gives the most intuitive feeling, described in one word is “stable” where the stable is not only the literal meaning of stable, more is in a variety of scenes, stable, excellent samples, especially the focus speed and night shooting performance, is impressive.

On the other hand, as a late 2020 Snapdragon 865 flagship, OPPO’s knife in Reno5 Pro+ is still very precise, in the image part by neutering the periscope telephoto and its own Find X series to achieve the positioning difference, but also around the Reno series main focus of thin and light high-value design and portrait video to attack hard, to meet the consumer’s demand for high-end performance, high value, slim design, portrait video.
