As we see in the Stories of Instagram, on Snapchat or on Twitter, the smartphone and its form have accustomed us to shoot videos with the mobile vertically, because this way we can do it with one hand. What happens if you put that video or sequence of images in a panoramic 16: 9 format? That comes the typical black columns on the sides because the image is in vertical format.
And it is that you can shoot in Landscape mode – with the mobile ‘lying down’ with only one hand, but it is not as good and yours is to hold it with both hands. How to shoot with the terminal vertically but then look as if we had done it horizontally? With the new Motorola action camera.
Motorola One Action
Presented this week, and following the wake of Motorola One Vision a few months ago, the company has presented its Motorola One Action, a mid-range mobile with a tight, powerful price and that has its best asset in its unique camera. But let's start with its design before: Without giving up Premium elements, the One Action has a design with 6.3-inch Full View screen and FullHD + resolution with a curious aspect ratio of 21:9 -used also by Sony and which they say improves content display. Highlights the 12 megapixel front camera perforated on the screen, a trend that ranges high as the last two Samsung Galaxy S and Note They also implement.
Inwardly we have a Exynos 9609 processor with a neural engine for Artificial Intelligence, a mid-range chipset that runs well current games that add to it 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal space expandable by microSD up to 512GB. The battery is 3,500 mAh with Quick Charge 10W and bring the cash Android One operating system Factory default – the almost purest version of Android very similar to the Android Stock experience.
Motorola Action Cam
The element that the terminal and its marketing campaign focuses on, the company has created the concept of ‘action camera’ and implemented a Triple Rear camera:
- 1 sensor2 MP with Autofocus and opening f / 1.8
- P sensordepth of 5MP
- Sensor 117º Wide Angle with Quad Pixel
A sensor that improves the usual wide angle lens of 78º standard and achieves 4 times larger frames, the terminal is capable of shoot a panoramic scene vertically, and when you drop the phone to see it in Landscape mode, the image completely fills the screen as if it had been filmed from this position. The camera can also be activated by gestures, simply by turning the wrist of the hand with which we hold the mobile.
The Motorola One Action will go on sale at the end of August in Spain – the exact day is still unknown – at a price of 279 euros. An adjusted cost taking into account the camera that mounts and the technology that it implements.
