1Rear Camera – Indoors
This image was taken under artificial lighting conditions. Other than decent colour accuracy and sharpness, the camera also depicts the degree of shallow depth of field which this camera can bring out in the auto mode.
2Rear Camera – Outdoors
Starting with the good lighting conditions, the 13-megapixel shooter at the back of the Redmi Note 4 managed to capture some good accurate colours. The photo has a decent amount of detail and sharpness. The camera also captured just the right amount of exposure whereas the dynamic range is average in our opinion.
3Rear Camera – Outdoors
This picture came out to be pretty steady despite the fact that it was taken while we are moving. Apart from good natural colours, the camera hit the bull’s eye in terms of dynamic range in this one, thanks to a decent post image processing and HDR. The object, which is hand in this picture, is adequately focused and sharp. However, we do feel that the image is a bit under-exposed.
4Rear Camera – Indoors
Another example of how the primary camera struggles in low lighting conditions. Not only is the image blurry, the camera failed to handle the glare properly. Further, we would have a liked a little more light in this image as well.
5Front Camera – Good light
Moving on to the front-facing camera, pictures in good-lighting conditions come out to be good. The colours are accurate and the image has a decent amount of detail and sharpness. The camera manages to handle the exposure pretty well as well.
6Front Camera – Low-Light
When clicked under dim light or low-light conditions, the front-camera surprisingly brought in an impressive amount of lighting, however, with the lighting, comes some amount of noise in the background. Contrary, the colours are accurate in this picture as well and overall, the front-facing 5-megapixel shooter does a decent job.
7Rear Camera Low Light
This is where the camera struggles. As soon as we move into low-light conditions, the camera loses all its good points. The noise comes in and the image lacks detail. Not only this, the camera didn’t handle the exposure and light placed behind the shelves in the background. Nevertheless, the colour accuracy is on point here as well.
8Rear Camera Low Light
This is one of the few low-light images where the camera on the Redmi Note 4 manages to do a decent job of image reproduction. The detail is on point in this one along with accurate colours, decent dynamic range and exposure level.
9Rear Camera – Outdoors (HDR vs No HDR)
This photo somewhat depicts the amount of detail and dynamic range HDR brings into the picture. As mentioned, the photo on the left is with HDR turned off and is apparently over-exposed and lacks details when we zoom-in to the leaves. While, with HDR turned on, apart from the details on the leaves, the background including the sky is also a lot less exposed resulting in a decent overall picture.
10Rear Camera – Outdoors (HDR vs No HDR)
While the last picture showed how HDR made the over-exposed areas on the image a little less exposed, this picture is the opposite and shows how HDR manages to bring in some light in the under-exposed areas. Whereas we do feel that HDR made the background a little blurry in the image on the right.
11Rear Camera – Outoors
The camera really shines in this one at least in terms of detail and colour reproduction. The image is vibrant and pleasing to the eye, however, a little less exposure on this photo could have made it almost perfect. The dynamic range is pretty decent as well even though HDR was not switched-on in this one.
