OnePlus One Review Board, almost DSLR

Hi friends, today you will be introduced to Oneplus One camera on a phone very cheap and extremely hard to find. The park is a bottle of oil Ceausescu.
One Oneplus phone is a rarity, it is sold only with invitation and if you find the free pay much more than regular price (USD 300). I amluat him in Romania and amplatit 1700 lei for him.
Today we have a full review for this phone but a camera review. One Oneplus's presentation I made some time ago and those who have not seen it, I invite you to watch. Also, if you already have this phone and want to make them as root to install one of the 1000 the official ROMs, you can view One Oneplus tutorial rootarea.
Room One is based on Oneplus Sony 13 Megapixel sensor model Sony Exmor IMX 214.
Specifications room
Sensor Size = 1 / 3.06 "
Resolution = 13MP (rear)
Resolution = 5MP (front)
Aperture lens = F / 2.0
Group = 6 optical lens with autofocus
28 mm equivalent focal length =
4K UHD = 30 fps
4K DCI (cinema format) = 24fps
1080p = 30 and 60 fps (Shlomo)
720p = 120fps (Shlomo)
JPEG and RAW photo formats =
Video Formats = MP4, H264 and H263
Dual-LED flash =
This sensor is unbelievable, full HDR sensor readout (Spatially Multiplexed Exposure), my impression that this sensor DSLR's are in the stone age, black magic ...
Even if the sensor is top remains and block must focus optical image sensor bijureria. Mostly optical unit is properly executed with a small exception in focus video is not that good. You have two options, or quit automatic focus and you tap to focus or continue focusing choose you crazy with "hunting the" back and forth, that even if the subject is stationary and moves only slightly.
Now we're done with the negative side, let's get to what's in this room bright, Clear Image mode.
The first time I used the phone I felt like Clear Image Mode is stupid, that is a way to take a picture and it will be automatically deleted (so I thought). I was confused by the mobile interface in Romanian language, which I translated "Delete Image" instead of "clear picture".
Clear Image Mode is incredible, I have never seen such a call detail 13 MP.
In tutorial see in detail the difference between a picture taken in Auto and one in Clear Image.
What is Clear Image mode?
Due to highly advanced sensor can be made to 10 30 pictures which are then processed and finally one picture out clean, clear and no little noise.
The function is found on mobile OPPO where instead take a picture of 13 MP, one of 50 out of MP Camera and HD mode is called.
Cyanogen is more elegant implementation and the result is spectacular. We compared the picture with one of DSLR do while Oneplus One detail and won. Now of course the details are not everything, and aesthetics remains that a small sensor does not come out.
Pictures of tutorial
Application for comparison is called FastStone Image Viewer
OneplusOne filming known to man in all resolutions from CIF (320 240 ×) to 4K DCI (4096 2160 ×).
Frame rates are also sites ranging from DCI 24K 4 fps for up to fps at a resolution of 120 1280 720 × or less. At 1080p can shoot in 30 60 or automatically fps and filming is slow if you use the 1080p 60fps or 720p 120 fps.
Details are excellent as long as you have enough light. When light falls fleas begin to appear in the image and when the light is very weak, noise occurs with fleas.
This is normal behavior on small sensors. It is preferable to have a flea but we stay and details, so that the Samsung and LG disagree, they aggressively applying noise reduction until all details are lost.
The sound in this phone is very well recorded during filming, internal noise preamplifier native is very small and the sound is captured with great sensitivity.
In one test we got on a tripod frame 24 fps 4K DCI and may seem slightly jerky, it's because you can not manually set the shutter speed to 1 / 50 as it should (maybe in the next update).
In two test action takes place in a vulcanization which is located a short distance from the road, the background is a compressor that breathe (no noise).
Sample video:
Test gradual exposure and eventually banding (color)

Test details, sound and auto focusing (focusing continued) background compressor flex and machines and voice

Learn as you learn!


  1. How can you compare a smartphone with a DSLR? Maybe it's your appliance out entry-level or have a cheap lens, but otherwise you can not say OnePlus One take pictures better than a DSLR. I'm not even in the same league ...

    • See it's a zip to download all files analyzed tutorial. You can do your own comparison. You can check and photo's EXIF ​​data to see what has been done and what settings.
      Nikon DSLR is a D5200 and the goal is a premium 35mm F / 1.8 800 cost only he lei.
      Maybe it's hard to digest but phones have advanced greatly in recent years and is very close to the cameras.
      DSLRs have a few aces up his sleeve like ultra fast focus, light metering, low light capabilities and bokeh characteristic of the large sensor.
      If we talk about the details, then Oneplus One win when used at maximum, in good light in a controlled environment, tripod Clear Image mode.
      Check in zip files, they speak for themselves.
      DSLR I and I and Oneplus One, not one or the other side.
      Technology has advanced a lot and have to admit that. Sure DSLR has the ergonomics and speed of work, something that a phone will not ever have, but for a picture in a hurry does a great job and a telephone.
      I bet, if you put Oneplus One skilled in the hands of a photographer, you do not even realize what drew so good it is.

  2. Rooms from mobile marketing remains an anchor.
    The situation still holds true. The camera resolution is higher, the sensor size "tiny" (compared with those of a DSLR) with both talking about lower quality final photograph. Basically, 8 / 13 / 20 / 50 / 100 MP ... are more difficult to process (high quality) by a small sensor (basically 13MP are processed on a much smaller sensor). Specifically, a room 8MP instead of 13 on this phone would be removed and a higher quality pictures, but market pressures dictate.
    A good objective DSLR needs so you can really squeeze can of sensor, be it non-FF. Basically, comparing a camera phone with a DSLR is still irrelevant in most cases. Lighting conditions should be similar, similar optics, use tripod etc ...
    It's really just that now the picture quality is far superior to the phones of the past, and soon will di somewhere of an entry-level level.
    However, if you take your phone to become a photographer (that's cheaper), not at all a good choice! If you get a phone with a camera, not to whom DSLR for you can be a great idea, but then DSLR can be sold as is useless, because photographing is more than just a hobby.

  3. So if Uncle Oneplus One is comparable to a DSLR then Nokia Lumia Nokia 1020 808 or PW is better than a DSLR?
    Let's face it ....
    Get a 1020 808 and see what sensors are and do a review coparativ between all 4 (Oneplus One Nopkia 1020, 808 Nokia and a DSLR).
    Anyway thing is marketing 50MP 13MP of bread, to remove the eyes of babes ...

    • My comparison is based solely on the image detail captured in a controlled environment.
      I clearly said that DSLR is perfect ergonomics, which is essential when you're on the field and want to move quickly.
      With Oneplus One or any other phone you can not focus fast, you can quickly change the settings, you can make custom white balance, you can not change too much exposure settings.
      However, if you compare the photos of the zip which is above download them, you will see how good Oneplus One, that we should not forget, has a small sensor and tiny lens.
      Oneplus One thing the software does, and does it very well.
      Another thing, small sensor technology has advanced more rapidly than APS-C sensors or Full Frame. Only a few months ago Samsung has released a camera with APS-C sensor circuits back (back side iluminated) technology present for years on small sensors to 1 ".
      When any DSLR that can shoot 4K, mirrorless few sites can do that.
      Even chapter phones are better processing, HDR is on the Fly, while DSLR needs to stick 2-3 seconds exposures.
      About HDR in video not talking.
      I bet that if you do some pictures side by side vs Oneplus One DSLR (without bokeh), most people will choose pictures taken with your phone as beautiful.
      Again, no fanboy, I and DSLR and Oneplus One and say what I see.
      Eventually "the best camera is the one that I have you."

      Zip the picture.

      ... Check the EXIF ​​pictures ....

  4. Hello! Who has this phone bunt tutorial. Unfortunately used only in terms of amateur photography. Please tutorials to the price you are asking or be more helpful. Good luck!

  5. Costelina said

    Eventually "the best camera is the one you have it in you."
    I agree with Cristi that is so dear (look how many === see happening in the world of diaspora elections) and many situations that were filmed with mobile phone (tel firm does not matter) and which were also taken from TV

    • If you do a side by side shooting DSLR and Oneplus One Oneplus One will definitely get better and details. Maybe you do this test in the final review.
      In the meantime if there is anything that interest you tell in comments and I include in that review to Oneplus One.

      Another one:
      "No matter the device, it is important photographer"

  6. Vlad Andrey1456 said

    Hello! And I want to express an opinion on your tutorials. Pursuing for several years each tutorial shown (and how many 10 some times: D) and do a great job! Thinking how I could make myself some coins in my spare time student, I got the idea how you might make you team video tutorial some extra money ... so what I mean is that we should add a subtitle in English for each tutorial that you have, or at least the most important. I heard that "outside" tutorials quality (like yours) are highly rated and frankly I do not see anyone, not in Romania or elsewhere, have both patience and explain every detail as you're doing in your tutorials. Perhaps you have even more visitors, that would be a long-term advantage.
    It's just my opinion, and I hope that does not bother anyone, on the contrary, I would love to know as a trivial idea, I helped someone!

    • Thanks for the suggestion, know that we thought we at that. Unfortunately we do not have time to translate them, but ...
      If someone offers to translate from English to Romanian tutorials, we expect an offer.
      There are about 1300-1400 tutorials.
      Look offers!

      • Hi,
        We arrived ... here click-to-click, from the 2009 tutorial :) for your domain & web hosting space & all the rest.
        Seeing Andrey1456 Vlad's comment and response to it ... I thought I could do something on the idea of ​​win-win; more specifically, may I help you with the translation of tutorials in English and Italian, as volunteers; I have not translated technically so far but given that almost 2 months are 'on all sorts of information & tutorials' linux bash, processors etc. (you name it, I've probably Went There out of what Seems to be year endless curiousity - I started, eventually, slowly ... to order) - and most of the information in question are in English (in Italian and English and I worked in customer service) - I suggest you tell me, what you want to translate, in the first phase and ... let it roll. If you like the idea, let me know - my advantage is that anyway, I learn something new and I practice English and Italian and in a technical field :); otherwise, increase the good things and beautiful soul

        • If you want to translate the tutorials, you should translate exactly what you like to watch yourself.
          There are plenty of tutorials and among them you will definitely find something to make you happy. This way the translation goes easier.
          Eventually we find a method to reward, even if you do it with pleasure.

  7. I can not open archive photos, I think it is corrupt

    • I can open the file and view photos without problems. Try to download another browser.

    • Marius L. said

      And I had the same problem. I downloaded archive with photos and Chrome, and Mozilla, and not open at all. The first error as it would have been corrupted. I thought only my problem, but I see that there are others who encounter this problem. To my surprise, after I downloaded with Internet Explorer, I managed to extract images.

      • Most often the problems come from the plugins and the google cache.
        Every website has some scripts, css sites or fonts need to be loaded every time or once in a while. In Firefox plugins that are blocking scripts that are no longer loaded, causing interrupt thread download.
        In Google Chrome proxy cache is used for speeding up loading google unfortunately sometimes display errors if you change something in the article the author upon publication. On page but the cookie files is to download here have cookies and cache kink Google Chrome.
        Internet Explorer is the most correct (unforgiving) browser, if you make a mistake (as a web developer) in a site, Internet Explorer worst punishing you, other browsers overlook errors in html, css or js.
        It would be much to say about websites and how they are seen on the web in different browsers and different operating systems. If you ask people, I will make a tutorial about web optimization, as just doing this for years.

  8. Give us advice on how to shoot with this phone but the rest telefonelor. Acceptable to see, is not the 1000GB etc. from your experience. The Criticized I!

  9. After I watched the pictures of both cameras conclusion is that the camera on the phone is really good, and pictures with d5200 are almost no better, but I think who did photos with d5200 not really have to photographing and so do not really know how to remove photos d5200's real value is not very good but a DSLR but aoricand surpasses any camera on the phone or tableta.In rest Aroca talafon only good light and many photo with your phone.

  10. Greuceanu said

    I did not manage to complete download archive with pictures, I tried different days in 2 3 different browsers, and a few times, partial discharges, then interrupt the download and no longer resume where it left off!

  11. Hello. So much muult already overdo this phone diricati praised him as if an alien device. Seriously OPO almost DSLR ??? that's a good joke in the first place does not have optical stabilization MEGA BIG minus in the century 2 think you are alone in the entire world that you support this. Most just say it's a mediocre to pretty good room and you ... ??? . As said above when a user or Nokia Nokia Lumia 1020 808 PW are more than a DSLR by your words, right? I'm afraid to ask how are rooms on LG G3, notes or Iphone 4 6 addition to 3310 think you say that ... ..

    • Do not exaggerate with Oneplus One. It is the only Android phone that you can flash uiesti what you want without losing your warranty.
      It is the only phone that does not excessively pictures and video processing.
      It is the only phone that filming 4k DCI to 24 fps.
      It is the only phone that 4k HDR shooting.
      The list could go on ...
      I had many phones, and Android and Windows Mobile as well wp. Up to this phone I had a degree of satisfaction so great.
      Sure, Oneplus One small fancy has fortunately can be eliminated easily.
      In the review I will be more complete and I think you will understand why it is so good Oneplus One.
      As an idea, Nikon D4s any prime lens is not stabilizing .., and is the leading DSLR.
      Sure stabilization is good, but if not, does not mean that Oneplus One does not have a camera.
      Samsung is good but exaggerates sensors with reduced noise and I do not like it.
      Nokia phones with cameras equipped some very good, unfortunately the operating system is so popular.
      There are many excellent camera phones on the market, some better than Oneplus One unfortunately does not come bundled with what comes Oneplus One.

      We all have the right to an opinion on a product. Each of us does the job better or worse. Some are only superficial and when they do not test a detailed review but go to the other device and copy the ideas and impressions that you express them as review sites such as opinion / their opinion and do it just because they are superficial and the waiting list are many products coming and that data for review. Their interest is often not properly inform but to make money selling their verticality and sincerity for a very very small percentage they receive mentioning his name that he gave to review your device.
      Some simply have nothing to compare, not a DSLR.
      We had attempted to present the products offered but when the entity offered are seen as objective and honest and aggressive kiss no product to sell so they have ceased to work. Precisely for this reason we do just to own procurement reviews not to offend anyone and most importantly, to have enough time to turn the device on all sides so that you make an opinion about it and not just for those who copied views I give you products for testing and it leaves a very limited time.

      • Adrian Gudus said

        One is to test a device with mental and spiritual relaxation, the device is yours and you have all the time in the world to test, and another is to do tests and benchamrk Quick Links under stress and pressure return!
        Although it may seem trivial, it's much you can test conditions to relax, be yourself and act normal with him, to make your tascurile, your daily routine on a device that is yours. You're more relaxed, relaxed and often, with time gives head put him to all kinds of crazy, compare it, to get informed, to analyze, to see if X or Y can work. Things just come to light because doing nothing forced, under pressure and return the other reviews that have to do quickly because you have many other devices on the waiting list who unfortunately are you a limited time

          Personally I did a survey among some members of my family and some friends.
          I showed them side by side photos and asked them to choose who they like best and why.
          All have chosen arguing OnePlus One (WARNING!) That "it is more enjoyable"
          Now "pleasant" does not equal better. Ordinary people, atehnici no concern to the complexity of a DSLR, they for a device (in this case a phone) point and shoot fast, easy to use without complex functions will not have to deal with manual settings and complex but simplicity, quality and speed.
          All treabuia to understand this tutorial is that some photos do OanePlus One more pleasant and that does not mean it's automatically better than a DSLR but enjoyable for all users who want

  12. gabicuhandicapfizic said

    how that program is called to account in which data
    I mean when I want to do to defend my account directly?

  13. All these comments have no phone sens.Nici matter what brand will be and how many MP will not take pictures at a DSLR parte.Nu do whatever class you take pictures even at a compact.Asta of course if the camera will be in the hands of the building fotograf.Un camera is made to take pictures in a telephone exchange is to transmit and receive voice messages or written, the rest is marketing many things and I entuziasm.Şi smart phone a samsung note3 and photos I've done with him so to see about what can be done with a phone, the conclusion is that not too many in which the first fotografia.În not very convenient to shoot with a telephone, has dedicated buttons for that, then there may be no settings too easy, and I mean the exposure, ISO, shutter speed, aperture and not least downgrade that is most phones so that tactile and having the view that stabilization as the screen moves by pressing the phone and the picture will be mişcată.Deci phone is not thought to be COSTRUCT camera, you can make him acceptable photographs to speak, put on FB to the forums and much else.

  14. Take the silly comparison ... as said the versatility of a DSLR and settings that you can make it can not be compared with a telephone auto-sensing of pinhead. Secondly white balance on one plus is horrible and color reproduction, proceeding even furby picture. The eventual printing of pictures and colors are worse.

  15. Does anyone know an application "camera" for Android that displays date and time instant in the picture?

    Only can comment carcotasii performance of this phone, because it does not hold. I think if you have only hand 1 week, do not want another phone.
    I have this phone, we showed photographs taken, shooting, friends and all were and are delighted with their quality.
    The phone's price (lei 1380 gave variant 64Gb) slow motion filming to 120fps / 720. On cyanogen working to make slow motion to 1080 / 10 fps.
    In particular, video and photos on various occasions, I have a Canon EOS D500, has many settings, but you get the quality you want, you have to make dozens of settings. The One setting Clear Image, reach the same quality made by Canon, without further efforts.
    Cupryan open room (tick the settings) displays the time, date, compass (photo orientation to north), location.

  17. nick5roo said

    A correction of typing: 1080 / 120fps

  18. Hello Cristi.
