The Zoom touts one of the most interesting and advanced main camera setup on a smartphone even up to this date. It uses a 13 MP f/2.7 - 4.8 aperture 10 element lens w/ 28 - 84 mm size made by Hoya that has 3x optical losless zoom and up to 12 x digital zoom. This phone also has a good and speedy type of laser autofocus, OIS and dual tone LED flash to complete the experience.

To put its camera into full test, the local team of Asus brought us to Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar in Bagac, Bataan, Philippines. It's one of the most scenic venue in our country that showcased and treasured our history by putting most of the old houses, rails, relic and etc. to make it a really impressive town.

Here's some of the sample photos taken at Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar with no filter

The result, our experience with the ZenFone Zoom in its imaging quality is mostly smooth. It takes great photos under good lighting, do most of the tricks that a ZenFone camera can do, focuses on subjects fast, can focus closely on objects and of course it zooms well with much lesser noise.
