The Evolution of Phone Videography with the new OPPO Reno2
More people are seeing the vast potential behind videos as a form of expression nowadays. We also see this with the rise of popular platforms such as Youtube, Instagram, and TikTok, as well as the increased number of videos being churned out online. Videos speak volumes in creating stories, and with smartphones now being an extension to one’s lifestyle, people are more open to sharing stories and expressing creativity through videos seamlessly captured with their smartphones.
With the advent of the rise of video, the OPPO Reno2 takes things up a notch to better capture video content. The Reno2 series was especially designed to allow its users to help budding content creators become more effective storymakers. Thanks to the smartphone’s enhanced Quad Rear Camera consisting of a 48MP main camera, an 8MP wide angle lens, a 13MP telephoto lens, and a 2MP mono lens, supported by 5x Hybrid Zoom and up to 20x digital zoom and the Ultra Wide Angle lens. The Reno2 offers 116° Ultra-Wide Angle view, bringing your stories to life through boundless landscapes day or night. The series enables its users to capture long-distance scenarios in ultra-high quality imaging, whether it be taking videos of your favorite performers at a concert or capturing breathtaking scenery.
The Reno2’s Ultra Steady Mode feature is designed to guarantee stable and smooth videos in the midst of extremely shaky situations. The series is equipped with Optical Image Stabilization and a 60 fps frame rate to compensate for those shaky shots and enhance image stabilization, fluency, and overall image quality. A true testament of eliminating boundaries as you better express yourself.
The Reno2 is equipped with the Ultra Dark Mode, which produces crisp and clear shots even during low light conditions, capable of picking up details invisible to the human eye.
Adding to the Reno2 camera’s roster of video-focused features are the Bokeh Effect Video that adds depth, the Background Noise Reduction feature that cuts out background noise to make the subject’s sounds more focused, and the Audio Zoom feature that allows one to amplify the sound of a subject while zooming in on it.

PBIDC Chairman and Department of Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez shared that the council has identified new approaches and strategies to grow the industry that will lead to investments and job creation.
“We are updating our strategies and expanding the list of government agencies as well as private sector partners to be involved in the development of this industry. It will be a whole-of-nation approach to ensure sustainable progress. We are also working closely with long-time bamboo industry advocates House Deputy Speaker Deogracias Victor DV Savellano and the Philippine Chamber of Mines official Atty. Leo Dominguez,” said Sec. Lopez.
During the council meeting on 16 October 2019, strategies were set such as identification of more land suitable for bamboo plantation; sourcing of right species and planting materials; propagation strategies; setting up of treatment facilities; product development assistance; exploration on the potentials of bamboo fiber as well as its byproducts; and inclusion of bamboo in crop insurance. The council is also looking at establishing bamboo industries at the barangay level to provide jobs and business opportunities in the countryside.

DTI is currently assessing its 101 Shared Service Facilities (SSF) on bamboo processing nationwide. The agency is also consolidating bamboo's market potentials. It will likewise tap the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for skills development, training, and scholarships on bamboo production and processing. Meanwhile, the DTI-Bureau of Philippine Standards will work on setting up standards for bamboo products.
“The goal is to make the development of the bamboo industry more inclusive. Encourage farmers to plant bamboo and provide economic activities in their communities,” Sec. Lopez added.
As one of its initiatives, the PBIDC together with industry partners showcase high-value bamboo-made products at the ongoing Manila FAME. Contemporary designs of Filipino bamboo manufacturers and artisans are featured in the premiere lifestyle exhibitions in Asia Pacific.
