Tecno teased their sensor shift IS technology for smartphone cameras in mid-December, and now Tecno presents telescopic macro lens for smartphones, a telescopic macro lens that claims to enhance not just the quality of macro images, but also the overall experience of taking them.
As seen in the video below, this is a telephoto macro lens that extends from the body and allows you to snap close-up photos without having to get too near to the subject.
It has a 5x optical zoom and, according to the manufacturer, the end effect is equivalent to that of a DSLR. With the latest batch of macro cameras, we haven’t seen anything like this before.
The technology also enables a larger aperture, which is necessary for decent images.
Tecno also claims that the design is small and does not require a large housing, but does not elaborate.
The manufacturer did not specify when a Tecno smartphone with the new telescopic lens will be available, but it will undoubtedly be this year.
