The 120° wide-angle camera on ZenFone 4 has a 200%* larger field of view than standard smartphone cameras, so you can fit more scenery and people in the frame for dramatic photos and videos that capture a true sense of place. When taking photos indoors, the wide-angle view makes it much easier to get the shot you want — especially in confined spaces where it may not be possible to take a few steps back to fit everyone and everything into the photo. The unique perspective of the wide-angle lens can also be used to stylistic effect, allowing you to exaggerate the sense of space in any setting to capture more dramatic scenes and stunning, expansive landscapes.
* Calculation based on a standard lens with an 83° (25mm) field of view and a wide-angle lens with a 120° (12mm) field of view.
To capture real-world authenticity, ZenFone 4 packs a 12MP main camera with a wide F1.8 aperture, plus the latest Sony® IMX362 sensor with a large 1.4µm pixel size. Combined with optical image stabilization (OIS) that allows blur-free handheld exposures of up to 1/4 seconds — 3x longer than cameras without OIS — and a six-element lens, 5x* more light can reach the camera sensor, making ZenFone 4 perfect for capturing brighter, clearer true-to-life photos at night, in low-light environments, and in back-lit situations.
* Compared to typical smartphone with 16MP resolution, F1.7 aperture & 1.12µm pixel size.
A dual pixel camera unit with 24 million focus detection sensors — two for each of its pixels — provides ultrafast 0.03 seconds phase-detection and subject-tracking auto-focus to ensure sharp and clear photos.
