Camera

Asus had originally brought innovations to the camera department with its Zenfone Laser and Zenfone Zoom models. In 2016, the Zenfone 3 takes the company’s existing efforts to new levels.

The Asus Zenfone 3 ZE552KL sports a hump on the rear with 16-megapixel Sony IMX298 camera sensor, f/2.0 aperture, 6-piece Largan lens and Sapphire glass protection. The rear camera sensor uses the company’s TriTech autofocus technology that combines laser, phase detection and continuous autofocus to deliver sharper results. A dual-LED module is also available to highlight subjects in dark shots. Besides, an 8-megapixel camera sensor is available on the front to capture selfies.

Asus has provided its proprietary Camera app on the Zenfone 3 that has features like HDR and Beautification modes as well as several filters and various shooting options, including HDR Pro, Super Resolution, Low Light, Panorama and Smart Remove among others. The app also has a manual mode to let you adjust ISO, shutter speed, focus, white balance and exposure.

On the performance front, the all-new hardware and an improved app on the Zenfone 3 outperform its predecessors. The combination of laser and phase detection autofocus sharpens macro shots. The large-aperture lens, on the other hand, results in some perfect bokeh effect and enhances low-light shots. The primary camera also has four-axis optical image stabilisation (OIS) and three-axis electronic image stabilisation (EIS) duo to stabilise your 4K video content.
