The 150 degree wide angle camera mode on the OnePlus 10 Pro it’s a lot of fun, and you should give it a try if you have the phone. The feature is a bit hidden, so until you know where it is, you might accidentally miss it. Plus, there’s a secret you need to know about how to get the most out of it.
While the OnePlus 10 Pro’s camera is still a work in progress, the 150-degree camera mode makes up for it. Here’s what you need to know before trying it out.
You already know how to switch to the standard 120-degree wide-angle camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro, just use the same regular switch in the viewfinder as you do on any other phone. But to use 150 degree wide angle mode, you need to visit the option Plusthen select the function called 150, press and hold the icon, and finally drag it down to the main camera menu. In the future, you can quickly swipe to it like you would in Portrait or Night mode.
As you’d expect from the name, it adds an even wider field of view than the standard wide-angle mode to your photos. This means it’s great for sweeping views and landscape photography, but if used carefully it can be just as fun and create just as powerful images, even for up close and personal shots. You won’t want to use it all the time, but it’s much more versatile than you might think at first.
OnePlus has adjusted the 150-degree camera mode to take bright, colorful and exciting photos. Most have a strong HDR effect, and you often don’t have to worry about shooting into the sun because of it. That’s a good thing as the ultra-wide camera captures a lot of skyso avoiding the sun can be difficult.
I love the punchy, saturated style of the photos he takes, and while the shots aren’t always entirely realistic (electric blue, straight green, and vibrant red colors are common), they’re always exciting. When many of us take photos to share online, it’s a feature we want, and here you don’t need to resort to a filter to get it.
I’ve been taking photos with the 150 degree camera on the OnePlus 10 Pro for several weeks now, and a few more weeks before her on the Realme GT 2 Pro also. The only thing I’ve learned during this time is that to get the most out of it, you need to experiment with shooting vertically instead of horizontally.

This will go against the instincts of some photographers, but will feel perfectly natural to others. It doesn’t seem like the best way to use a super wide-angle camera either, but it really is. What it does is make the most of that extra field of view by really emphasizing scale.
Sounds weird right? It’s almost as if the 150-degree view is too wide, and in many situations, it’s difficult to locate an ideal focal point in the landscape, making it difficult to take an eye-catching photo. In portrait orientation, you can maximize the amount of sky while making sure your subject remains the focal point, rather than simply adding more horizontal detail when in landscape orientation.
Unless you spend most of your time in the mountains and want to capture the grand scale of the landscape, portrait shots with the 150-degree camera help add scale and drama to even the most ordinary scenes.
The 150-degree camera is not suitable for close-ups. It focuses at a distance, and if your subject is too close to the camera, it will be out of focus. It’s also not for photos of people, unless they’re in the distance, as it can stretch limbs and bodies in a weird way.

Another advantage of shooting in portrait orientation is that it minimizes the amount of fisheye effect that comes with the ultra wide angle camera, where the sides of your photos curve up and give the scene that weird and not always desirable fisheye look. fish. That leads to the one part of the 150-degree camera that isn’t that great.
You will notice that there are two modes. The first is the 150-degree wide-angle mode that takes regular aspect ratio photos, while the other creates circular, true fisheye images. Not only is it more difficult to take advantage of this point of view, but the resulting images have an ugly black border around them, ruining the look when you share them. Give it a try, but I don’t think it’s as much fun as normal 150 degree mode.
Yeah, the 150-degree camera mode is a bit gimmicky, but I don’t mind because it’s funny. With it, you can quickly and easily take creative photos that look very striking without having to learn anything extra, and by thinking portrait instead of landscape, it’s also more useful in more situations.
The OnePlus 10 Pro’s camera is already decent and software updates are making it even better, but the 150-degree camera mode is the hidden highlight that doesn’t need any tweaking to make it better, and you should try it out as soon as you get the chance. .
