Back in mid-December, Tecno teased their sensor-shift IS technology for smartphone cameras, and now it’s announcing a telescopic macro lens that promises to improve not only the quality of macro images but also the overall experience.
As the video below shows, this is a telephoto macro lens that extends from the body and allows you to shoot close-up photographs without having to get too close to the subject.
Apple employed this type of IS for the first time on a phone with the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and it was thereafter adopted by all 13-series models. The camera lens on current Android phones (including those with gimbal stabilization) is moved to stabilize the image.
According to the firm, it has a 5x optical zoom and produces results that are comparable to those of the main camera. With the current macro cameras, we haven’t seen anything like it before. A larger aperture is also possible thanks to the technology, which is essential for good images.
Furthermore, Tecno claims that the design is compact and does not require a large housing, but does not go into detail.
The business did not specify when a Tecno smartphone with the new telescopic lens would be available, but it is certain that it will be this year.
