There Were Selfies and Then Came Moonlight Selfies With Vivo V5

The world seems to have gone smart today! And so has photography. Along with the evolution of telephony and photography lifestyles have changed, fads have emerged and faded, but one of the most enduring and popular phenomenon that has taken the digital world by storm is the innocuously named “Selfie”.

Ever wondered how the “selfie” evolved? The “Selfie” could be traced back to 1839 when an American called Robert Cornelius produced a daguerreotype of himself. It is fascinating to note that as the process was slow, he was able to run in front of the lens and head back to replace the lens cap to capture what could be termed as the first “Selfie”, though the term was unheard of then. It was much later, in 2002 that an Australian used the term “Selfie”, for the first time to describe a photo he had taken of his own bruised face, injured after a drunken birthday party. By 2012 ‘Selfie” had become so popular that it was considered as one of the top 10 Buzzwords of the year by Time magazine. 2013 saw the Oxford English Dictionary honor it as the ‘Word of the Year”. Today Selfies rule the roost and people, especially the younger generations revel in Selfies with Selfies at every point of their lives.

Smart phones today have in more senses than one become synonymous with Selfies, however not all selfies are flattering and leave a lot to be desired in terms of aesthetics. The lighting, the resolution and many other specifications of the smartphone play a role in determining the quality of a selfie.

Imagine you are having a romantic walk with your beloved in the garden, the fragrance of multiple flowers wafting in the breeze as you walk hand in hand serenaded by silvery moonbeams. You pause to take a selfie, realizing the magic of the moment calls for one. But lo and behold! The magic is not captured in the selfie. In situations like these Vivo 5, the first ever 20 Megapixel front camera phone for a good moonlight selfie would be an ideal companion who would not let you down.

The Vivo V5 is embellished with a 20 Megapixel selfie camera and also equipped with a front-facing “Moonlight Glow” front camera light which improves the quality of pictures when the light is low.

The unique “Moonlight Glow” feature of Vivo 5 creates a natural glow on the face without straining eyes which results in the picture brightening up even in bad lighting conditions. Additionally, the features of the camera ensure perfectly clear images without distortion or graininess.

Another important quality of the Vivo 5 is its audio output which has an excellent signal to noise ratio of 115db.

    Sounds like this phone has so many great features. I believe that the camera is almost just as important as the phone itself, especially since the beginning of selfies.
