On the opposite side of the Passport’s impressive 1440×1440 screen is a solid 13MP camera. The camera which was detailed in a spec sheet last week is packed to the gills to offer an exceptional capture expereince with a high quality lens capable of shooting 720, 1080 and 4K video @ 30 FPS. This new information comes via @Dhabkirk – it’s suggested that on the initial release the Passport will not support 4K video recording but will support this capability with the latter release of 10.3.1.
- 13MP Auto-Focus
- Optical Image Stabilization (OIS)
- 5-element f2.0 lens
- Back Side Illumination
- LED Flash
- 1080p HD video recording at 60fps
- 6DOF video stabilization
- 5x digital zoom
- Continuous & touch to focus, image stabilization
Overall 4K shooting is totally useless. But as table stakes it’s great that BlackBerry is planning for the support. It shows they are market aware and working to keep their devices competitive against contenders like the larger iPhone and Note 4 slated for later this year.
What do you think – Does 4K video recording add value to the already impressive device?
