The shiny smartphone "Nothing Phone (1)" is equipped with a Sony camera and has performance without far, middle, and near skies - GIGAZINE
Invisible terminal on the backNothing Phone (1)' is pretty daunting in appearance, but that doesn't mean it lacks practicality. In fact, I took it outside and shot various things to see what the camera performance was like.

Nothing Phone (1) is equipped with "Nothing OS" based on Android. Information on incoming calls and notifications that make use of the rear LED "Glyph", which is one of the features, is summarized in the following article.
Although the installed applications are narrowed down considerably, the "camera" cannot be removed as a smartphone. The icon with a red dot in this black rectangle is the camera app.
The startup screen looks something like this, it looks very orthodox. The default shooting mode is "Photo".
Another shooting mode is "slow motion"
There are five "More", and "More" is further divided into four modes: "Timelapse", "Panorama", "Macro" and "Expert".
Tap the triangle at the top of the screen to open the menu for each mode.
With "Photo", you can select from multiple aspect ratios at the time of shooting. This is "16: 9".
"FULL" has a ratio of 11:5. Since everything within the screen range is subject to shooting, the menu part changes to semi-transparent.
The shooting resolution can be switched between 12MP and 50MP ULTRA HD.
In addition to "Original", there are 12 types of filters: "Western", "Parma", "Metro", "Eiffel", "Blush", "Modena", "Film", "VOGUE", "Ollie", "Bazaar", "Alpaca" and "Vista".
The camera settings look like this. The item "Shutter sound" disappears when a domestic SIM is installed.
When you actually shoot with no shutter sound and shutter sound, it looks like this. The sound is rather conspicuous, so you may have to be a little careful when shooting in cafes.

"Portrait" can change the aperture of the lens in the range of f0.95 to f16, and can adjust the degree of bokeh widely.
Here is a shooting example. Those without special description are 1:1 shooting in "Photo" mode. In addition, the processing performed for article publication was only reduction.
tower of the sun
Taken at 2x from the same position.
Similarly, taken at 0.6x from the same position. In photo mode, ``0.6x'', ``1x'' and ``2x'' magnifications are available as shortcuts, ``0.6x'' uses a super wide-angle lens, and ``1x'' and ``2x'' use the main camera.
"Black Sun" behind the Tower of the Sun, 1x shot.
Parts of the large roof, 1x shot.
"Earth Pond", 1x shot.
Since there is movement of water, I also tried slow motion shooting. The first half is slow motion, and the second half is a movie shot normally at almost the same position.

It is also possible to specify the slow motion range on the terminal.
I took a panorama shot at the same spot.
Flower bed, 1x shot.
I stopped by and took some portrait shots. The default f5.6 looks like this.
f0.95. Although it is true that some parts are blurred, it is not a natural process of ``blurring as you move away from the focused part'', but rather unnaturally.
f16. Compared to f5.6, the bokeh of the stem part is weakened, but the impression is not that big.
I got close to the subject in macro photography. You can get up to about 2 cm.
Portrait shot of sunflowers at f0.95. Everything except the sunflower in the center is nicely blurred, including the woman with the parasol in the back right of the center.
With f16 it looks like this.
Square, photographed at 0.6x.
A river flowing through the forest, double shot.
Air passage, 1x shooting.
1x shooting looking up at the sun. The colors of the backlit leaves are also reflected beautifully.

Stop by curry and shoot 1x.
This is a portrait shot, f5.6.
A slightly dark sidewalk taken at 21:00 in August.
If you switch to "Night mode", you can shoot brightly.
Movie shooting performance looks like this. Below is a full HD 60fps movie shot while walking with Nothing Phone (1) in hand without using a gimbal etc., but camera shake is considerably reduced.
