According to her, young cinematic maestros can also take advantage of several unique video shooting modes that place them in the director’s chair.
Ojo noted that the Dual Micro-slit Flash paves the way to filming the moment in all light conditions, adding that the Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) that is inbuilt in the phone ensures sharp, stunning high-quality content every time; whether while taking a selfie or recording a video.
She also disclosed that the phone engages Movie Filter mode to create 2.35:1 ratio video content for a more authentic cinematic look or uses Dual View to capture the action from both sides of the camera with simultaneous front and rear video recording.

She explained that the three areas are really where Infinix ZERO 30 5G truly delivers.

“Infinix ZERO 30 5G goes further than any other smartphone in its class when it comes to system memory, packing up to 21GB of Extended memory (12GB plus 9GB using memory fusion technology). Having a significantly larger memory footprint is essential for handling the demands of 4K video, and the much larger file sizes created compared to standard HD, and 2K videos. To store these larger videos, Infinix ZERO 30 5G has a substantial 256GB storage ROM which allows users to record hours of extended, Ultra HD quality video content without concern,” she said.
Other additional features highlighted at the event include its long-lasting 5,000 mAh battery, coupled with 68W Super Charger which means no matter how much time is spent shooting UHD video, users will be back to a full charge in minutes, and can expect to charge from 1% to 80% in only 30 mins.
