Iconic photo journal magazine National Geographic has set out to prove that great professional quality pics are achievable by putting together a renowned photographer, spectacular scenery and the new OPPO Reno 5G smartphone.

Creative photographer Jarrad Seng used the latest high-end OPPO smartphone, which sports a super hi-res 48MP camera, to capture magnificent shots of the rugged areas of Tasmania that puts paid to any claims - at least to the untrained eye - that for good photography you need expensive dedicated photographic equipment.

“Working with National Geographic has given me a great opportunity to discover the wildest places in Tasmania,” said Seng.

“Wandering amongst the city, people, architecture and rugged nature with the OPPO Reno allowed me to experience and frame Tasmania in an exciting new way.”

National Geographic describes Frames as “a short interstitial content series set out to capture the unique natural beauty of different locations around Australia”, with Jarrad Seng and Tasmania the first cab off the rank.

“Throughout the making of the Frames series, we set out to create a style of content completely new for us that reminds and inspires our audience that beautiful photography is achievable for everybody, whether that be on a high end DSLR or the smartphone in your pocket,“ said Kael Hudson, director of advertising and partnerships, National Geographic Australia & New Zealand.

According to NatGeo, Jarrad Seng is one of Australia’s most prolific creative photographers whose works have been showcased in exhibitions around the world, Frames presented him his next big photography adventure by allowing him to explore the Tasmanian wilderness in a fully immersive creative experience.

The first series of Frames will include three short-form episodes that explore different perspectives of what Tasmania has to offer, as well as an insight to Jarrad himself, including his creative process in capturing key shots with the OPPO Reno 5G phone.

According tp National Geographic, “the Reno 5G’s 48MP super HD lens delivers super high resolution and greater colour accuracy for vivid detail in each photo, allowing Seng to capture incredible images of the waterfalls and wildlife across the Tasmanian landscape. While on location, the elements of the landscape revealed rare photographic opportunities which were easily captured by the OPPO Reno 5G phone.”

“Smartphones are increasingly becoming our photography tool of choice when it comes to capturing amazing images whilst on the move. The convenience and increasingly impressive camera capabilities within smartphones makes it easier than ever before for anyone to shoot like a pro,” said Michael Tran, Managing Director at OPPO Australia.

“With features such as 48MP triple camera, 10x Hybrid zoom, and Ultra night mode 2.0 to capture professional-grade night shots, we’re extremely excited for Jarrad to be showcasing what is possible on our latest smartphone - the OPPO Reno 5G.”

At $1,499 in Australia, the OPPO Reno 5G could not exactly be described as a cheap phone and photographic combo solution, but it does come at a considerably lower price tag than the high-end offerings from competitors such as Samsung and Apple.
