Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Review Part 2 – Day Time Video Camera Test

▶ The budget phone is slowly catching up. This could be your next vlogging camera. In the previous post, I said I bought this smartphone for the price, camera, and memory. I didn’t expect much of the camera coming from a cheap Xiaomi phone, BUT I was wrong! Just see the result of my test and let me know what you think.


What did I discover?
1. I thought all Xiaomi phones have this focus hunting problem, but no, the Redmi Note 5 is OK.
2. I thought the auto-focus is going to be sluggish, but no, it responded fast.
3. I thought the audio recording is going to suck, like my Mi A1, but no, I can hear myself clearly.
I tested it in a noisy environment and used the native camera app in complete auto mode.
Yet the colors are great (don’t compare with Samsung or iPhone though), and the audio is audible.
The sad thing is, it does not shoot 4K video.
Next, I am going to document the night time video camera test and time-lapse recording.

The original "idea" journal posted on Aril 28, 2015. I have a request to shoot a corporate internal talk and stream it to a live audience in seven different countries.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

1. Video conferencing system.
2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.
3. Other Streaming services like Ustream.

Video conferencing system is out as that would require a whole set of dedicated equipment.

All I have at this point is.


MacBook Pro Built-in Internal Microphone Location

Where is the built-in internal microphone on the MacBook Pro Retina 15?
There's two of them and both are situated inside the left speaker vent.

The dual built-in microphones are designed tor educe background noise from behind the notebook. The also create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
