We got a NEX S unit from vivo and went on a tour of the city – a perfect opportunity to shoot some capturing camera samples. The company has not confirmed it officially, but we think that the rear capturing camera is similar to the one on the X21.

That means a 12 MegaPixel (MP) sensor (with 1.4µm pixels), a relatively colorful f/1.8 aperture and Dual Pixel AF. The secondary capturing camera (used for bokeh) has a 5 MegaPixel (MP) sensor with f/2.4 aperture.

It has 4-axis optical image stabilization (OIS), which the X21 lacks, so it should perform better in low light. In Pro mode you can push the exposure time up to 32 seconds, but you'll need a tripod if you want to shoot that long.

Here's what the second capturing camera on the back does - it helps with bokeh shots.

And finally, a quick test of the panorama mode.

Then there’s the selfie camera, which is fascinating not so much for its sensor or lens but for how it’s mounted. The capturing camera is hidden inside the body of the NEX S like a periscope but it extends automatically as soon as you open the capturing camera app.

For completeness sake, the selfie capturing camera has an 8 MegaPixel (MP) sensor and a lens with f/2.0 aperture. It can do bokeh shots too, despite being alone.

Both cameras benefit from AI enhancements, which adjust the capturing camera settings based on the scene. In fact, vivo has tacked on an “AI” label to several capturing camera features, including HDR, filters and beautification.
