I think now you can get all these features in one and let me take you to a brand new launch of Asus Zenfone 2 Laser (ZE550KL) with the latest laser technology that gives you better picture with autofocus system on the mapped area.

Camera with Autofocus Laser Technology:

Let me start with a brief on how a laser works with camera. Laser emits light that focuses on a bright spot, this spot when directed into the focus of the camera, it will create more light and let the subject be more clear and brighter to get a better picture even in the sunlight. Most of the cameras nowadays, use contrast detection that focuses on the area depending upon the light they receive, this turns out to be an inaccurate measure.

Asus Zenfone 2 Laser uses the Laser autofocus method to capture colors in a different way. As mentioned, it emits minute red spot with the use of sensor and reverts to camera to focus on that image accordingly. This is how it works: if you want to click photo, the autofocus- laser creates a sharper and brighter image using the same time when compared to other phones with same autofocus technology. In the dim surrounding, the laser outshines and makes more easy for you to capture without even using a flash. It not only gives you easy focus at a short distance but also let you focus upto distances as long as 8-10 feet.

Ready for a selfie??? Asus Zenfone2 Laser is best when you shoot up closely or at short distance, so be ready for a right pose!! With the timings of sensor and the speed of laser, it can assure you a more defined and focused click. Laser, in turn, is more accurate and it works faster than the contrast detection method that is used widely in other phones.

To add more on camera features, ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser is coming with a 13 megapixel decent rear camera with a dual flash tone and autofocus laser, and a 5 megapixel front camera, all that is good to get in this price. This camera stands apart and its kind is mostly used in high-end devices. There are several other options to tweak and toggle among amazing filters, modes, depth of field, time lapse, GIF Creator, and so on, giving you comfortable feel of camera app. The manual mode has many professional options to choose from and a level indicator to take straight shots.
