Apple iPhone 12 upcoming features: I think you should have noticed that the recently released consumer electronics products seem to have such a feature as the Meizu 17 Pro rear camera module with a 3D depth sensor, which is actually TOF technology.
With the introduction of structured light technology, TOF (flight time) technology has also begun to enter the consumer’s field of vision. Thanks to similar technical principles and structured light technology, it has attracted the attention of many consumers.
Where is TOF technology sacred?
With the release of Apple’s iPhone X in 2017, Face ID (branch-level) facial recognition gradually came to consumers’ eyes, and with the release of the 2020 iPad Pro, Apple included front and rear dual TOF lenses in the small body.
Of course, a single flower is not spring, a hundred flowers blooming in the spring.
As a new thing in the industry, of course, Apple should not be allowed to monopolize the play code, and then the Android camp has also joined the popularity of TOF lenses.
From the beginning, the rear camera assisted in taking pictures and scanning modeling, to the front camera’s payment-level face unlocking and modeling, the Android camp has also made important contributions to the popularity of TOF lenses.
TOF is an abbreviation of Time of Flight technology, in human language, it is “flight time”.
A group of infrared light (laser pulses) that is invisible to the human eye is radiated outward. When infrared light collides with an object, it is immediately reflected, a reflected pulse wave is received, and the time difference or phase difference from radiation to the camera is calculated. To collect data, it is necessary to form a set of data on distance and depth.
Combine this data to get stereoscopic 3D model visualization technology.
Now let’s take a quick look at the use of TOF technology in recently released consumer electronics products.
How can I play with the TOF sensor?
The Huawei P40 series can be said to be the current camera benchmark for mobile phones. The former vice president of Huawei’s mobile phone product line is on Weibo. It is also recommended that you do not buy a third-party protective shell when using the P40 Pro. Otherwise, it will affect the TOF transmitter Normal use.
Huawei P40 Pro uses super-sensing Leica four-camera. It is including a 50-megapixel super-sensing main camera, a 40-megapixel movie camera. P40 Pro also includes a 12-megapixel 5x super-sensitive periscope telephoto camera (RYYB arrangement), and a 3D deep-sensing camera (TOF technology).
Meizu 17 Pro has a very luxurious image configuration. IMX686 main camera, with a larger photosensitive area. It has obvious advantages in light input and screen analysis;
On the ultra-wide-angle lens, Meizu 17 Pro chose a custom-made 129-degree 32-megapixel lens that supports pixel four-in-one technology. It can take good-looking ultra-wide-angle proofs during the day and night.
At the same time, it is also equipped with a telephoto and a 3D depth sensor. Which fully covers the lenses used in the daily shooting.
This 3D deep-sensing detector is actually a TOF lens, as well as the first Samsung S5K33D deep-sensing detector in the world. The main functions of which are to blur the portrait at the hardware level and better detect distance information in space. Perfect portrait blur photo and video.
Too much to say, we have prepared another mobile phone, one of which is Meizu 17 Pro with TOF, and the other is the flagship smartphone without TOF
