Duovox Mate Pro: the camera that promises to turn night into day
Duovox Mate Pro, a camera that promises to take photos at night with a brightness within the reach of few. We tell you all the details.
Night mode is probably one of the functions, if not the function, where mobile device companies put the most effort into their premium range devices.
All this started with the night mode that Huawei implemented in its Huawei P20 Pro, which was capable of take photos with lots of light and detail in situations of absolute darknessI eat well I explain here.
Google followed with its well-known Night Sight, and from then on all the big companies joined in improving this section of their photographs, as the OPPO Find X5 Pro recently did, whose analysis we recently did, which obtains never-before-seen images at night. in a smartphone, and as Apple already incorporates in its smartphones as the iPhone 13 ProMax.
This night photography technology is performed putting together several images taken over a range of time at different ISOs, and putting them all together for an image with greater detail and contrast. But yes, it only works for photos, not for video.
Duovox has presented its new compact camera called Duovox Mate Pro, which is in kickstarterseeking through crowdfunding a monetary base to be able to launch this camera on the market.
It features a Sony STARVIS 2 CMOS sensor, which Duovo claims is mil times more sensitive to light than an iPhone 13 Pro, and it has a dynamic range of 148% more than a Sony A7S III. This sensor has a f/1.8 focal length.
The resulting videos have a 2K and 5 Mpx resolution for photos in JPEG and RAW format. As for the rest of the specifications, it has a battery of up to 4 hours, storage of up to 512 GB, a range of 300 meters.
These sensors are designed to be used as security cameras. As use a rear lighting systemand have the ability to capture infrared light and visible lightwhich allows you to create sharp images in the most extreme lighting conditions.
The design of this camera is quite simple and in turn achieved in size. It has a 3-inch LCD touch screenand on its body it has a fire button, four directional buttons and the on/off button.
The reality that use cases, according to we have been able to see in some image and video comparisons, they are quite striking, but it would remain to be seen how much photographic utilityat least professionally could have.
We will be waiting to see if the project goes ahead in its crowdfunding attempt, which today has far exceeded the company’s estimate, and we will see if we can get hold of a unit to show you how it works.
