Along with the PHP 26,999 Reno6 5G, OPPO also launched the Reno6 Z as its more affordable option in the Philippines.

One of the many highlights of this handset is its use of the 64MP triple-camera setup.


In particular, it is equipped with a 64MP f/1.79 main shooter with PDAF focus and EIS for stabilization + 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera + 2MP macro camera + LED flash.

The brain that's powering these cameras is MTK's 7nm Dimensity 800U SoC. This is a 5G-ready chip with AI along with HDR-ISP, Multi-Frame NR, 3D Noise Reduction, Depth Engine, Warping Engine, and AI-FD to improve the camera experience.

For modes, it highlights AI Portrait Beautification Video, Dual-view Video, Bokeh Flare Portrait, 108MP mode, and AI Palette apart from the usual HDR, AI scene detection, Night mode, and more.

In front, it uses a 32MP f/2.4 snapper with an f/2.4 aperture. It also has HDR, Night mode, and Bokeh Flare Portrait.

Now, let's have a look at our first few shots.

In this daylight situation, Reno6 Z 5G delivered images that are bright looking with crisp details. Some may say that it is a bit too-HDRish, but we are just fine with it. At least, it isn't underexposed and lacking in details. Personally, I like the ultra-wide shot better here as it captured the details in the clouds better.

In a well-lit scenario with not too bright lighting, shots will turn out pretty good for the primary camera. Shots won't be overexposed and color, as well as textures, will look more natural.

In this beautiful sunset shot, you can see that retained good colors and details. Even the dynamic range is respectable overall.

What we like here is the wide shot is tuned well to match the main cam.

Of course, we tried its 3rd camera—the macro camera. Similar to most macro shooters, it can help you take super close-up shots. Just note that it needs plenty of light to work well.

The device also has a "108MP" mode with the help of software interpolation to produce shots that are bigger in resolution. But, note that bigger in resolution won't automatically translate to better image quality. Personally, I like the point and shoot mode better with pixel binning for crisper shots.

For indoor shots, the main shooter still performed very well even if the lighting is artificial. Details are still rich and colors are close to natural. It is noticeable that its ultra-wide shooter is softer in detail though. Fortunately, its colors are consistent with the primary shooter.

Understandably, the quality degrades in low light. Grain will be more visible and the dynamic range will be a bit lacking. But, its primary cam still takes usable images in the dark. On the other hand, the quality deteriorates a bit too much on its ultra-wide cam. Even with the help of the Night mode, it is still unexposed and grainy.

If you have a tripod, better use it when taking photos in low light. It'll produce shots with better details and less noise in the dark.

For selfies, it takes decent images in daylight. Even if you are wearing a mask, it won't make your shots look a bit too dull.

Without the beauty mode, the details on your face will look better. It is still a bit beautified for me though. Using the Portrait mode with the default Beauty effect, your skin tone will look softer. Just don't increase its softness to 100 percent to prevent unnatural-looking shots.

In the dark, it performed quite okay. It also has a Night mode for selfies. The Bokeh Flare Portrait effect is quite nice with respectable background blur to subject separation. Not bad for a mid-ranger.

For videos, it records up to 4K 30fps at the back and up to 1080p selfies. It also has Dual-View Video, Slo-Mo, and Time-Lapse that we will be trying in the next few days.

Quick thoughts

Despite its lack of a fourth camera for the bokeh effect coming from the Reno4 Z, you won't really feel it. OPPO is using its computation photography prowess to compensate for that.

So far, it takes great images in daylight, decent indoor shots even with artificial lighting, and okayish low light shots. Personally, my only gripe is the poor performance of its ultra-wide camera in the dark.

Other than that, we think that the PHP 19,999 OPPO Reno6 Z 5G has pretty good cameras for shooting photos at this price point. It won't compete with higher-end camera phones but it is a nice upgrade coming from similarly priced two-year-old phones and budget phones.
