Asus Zenfone Zoom Preview – Death Insert the compact camera?




The quality of the smartphone cameras has improved in the last few years by leaps and bounds. Sensors are bigger, brighter lenses and optical image stabilization techniques are becoming more commonplace. Some smartphones even have sensors that are as large as those in compact cameras and sales of compact cameras is logically under pressure. Not only can you pretty much get the same quality with some smartphones, but thanks to the wide range of app you can either do something with those photos, including on social media sites or email.

Its compact cameras than anywhere better? Oh yes though. Unlike smartphone manufacturers, camera manufacturers find it less important that their product is as thin as possible and reserve them so much more room for the camera lens. Almost every compact camera also has a zoom lens, which protrudes from the body and extends. This enables you to capture subjects miles better. With smartphones you rely on digital zoom, the image software is magnified and the image quality. There are in the past, smart phone manufacturers which have been released phones with a true zoom lens, but that were previously cameras with telephone functionality than the other way around.

Asus thinks the best of both worlds in one product to have caught the Zenfone Zoom; a phone with a 3x zoom lens that does not protrude. The Taiwanese manufacturer has already shown Zoom several times before on different exchanges, but always behind glass. With good reason, because it proved to be a major task to get this camera concept functioning. Fortunately, Asus is now ready the phone working and all dares to show. On the day before the 2016 edition of CES electronics trade fair broke, we went to all of us why Asus’ demo room to try the Zenfone Zoom.
