This year’s Sinulog brought a couple of firsts for me. Along with other journalists, editors, and bloggers, OPPO brought me to experience Sinulog firsthand with the OPPO F1s. It was my first time participating in the annual Cebuano festivities. It was also my first time relying on a selfie-driven phone for photography.
Despite tagging my Nikon D7200 along, I found myself taking quick shots and selfies with the OPPO F1s for a good part of the festival. The ‘Selfie Expert’ F1s was capable of standing toe-to-toe with the DSLR. From a technical standpoint, the DSLR wins but unless you’re nitpicky, the F1s can easily produce publishable images for both web and print.
The OPPO F1s is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture lens. More importantly, it comes with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture lens. The OPPO F1s is one of the rare smartphones that carries a much more capable selfie camera compared to its rear camera. Regardless, both cameras take stunning photos. Its camera capabilities are further complemented by the vibrant colors on display during Sinulog.
Here are the best photos I took during Sinulog. Let’s also make it more fun! Can you spot which ones I took with a DSLR and which ones I took with the OPPO F1s?
There are only two DSLR shots out of the eleven? They are the ones whose captions end in an exclamation point. Did you catch them all?
