Dual Rear Lens
It takes two to see up close
ZenFone 3 Zoom sets the new bar for mobile photography, combining two entirely new camera systems. A 12 megapixel ƒ/1.7 aperture, wide-angle lens with ASUS SuperPixel™ Technology is primed to capture everyday scenes, especially in dark environment; and a 12 megapixel 2.3x optical zoom for high-quality close-ups from farther away. Switching between ZenFone 3 Zoom’s dual cameras takes just an instant, and the combination enables an all-new depth-of-field effect — for portraits that look like they were shot by a pro.

Break through distance barrier
ZenFone 3 Zoom’s true 2.3x optical zoom lets you shoot super-sharp, close-up photos and videos from right where you stand, and with just a single tap. When you want to feel even closer, use ZenFone 3 Zoom’s improved digital-zoom technology to ramp up the magnification to a 12x view — and with clarity that’s hard to believe.
2.3x Optical-Zoom Camera
Seize the emotion
ZenFone 3 Zoom’s 2.3x optical-zoom camera and 59mm focal length introduces a whole new way to shoot. 2.3x optical-zoom produce a high quality close-up, and the 59mm focal length lens brought subject closer to you by creating more depth to its background object — so you’ll capture depth-of-field effects to rival those achieved by professional DSLR cameras. Combing with the new Portrait mode, the subject stands out more by softly blurring the background. Professionals call this the ‘bokeh’ effect — but you’ll know it as your new way to capture stunning portrait photography.
* Portrait mode will be available with software update.

2.5x Light Sensitivity SuperPixel™ Camera
Camera that sees in the dark
To capture real-world authenticity, ZenFone 3 Zoom packs a 12 megapixel camera with a wide ƒ/1.7 aperture and the latest Sony® IMX362 sensor. This combination, along with a large 1.4µm pixel size and a six-element lens, allows 1.25x more light to pass through to the sensor. This is further enhanced by ASUS SuperPixel™ Technology, effectively increasing captured light by up to 2.5x* — making ZenFone 3 Zoom perfect for night time shots and low-light environments. You’ll also benefit from both optical and electronic image stabilization (OIS and EIS) technologies for blur-free shots and video every time, a RGB color-correction sensor for true-color photography, and true 4K UHD video recording.

Night shot, low light & back light photos
ZenFone 3 Zoom’s ƒ/1.7 aperture is one of the largest found on any smartphone camera, and it’s coupled with a 1.4µm pixel size (1/2.55” sensor size) that’s also among the largest in the industry. The aperture of any camera is the hole behind the lens through which light passes to reach the sensor. The larger it is, the more light is able to reach the sensor, and the better the camera will be for night shot, low light and back light photography. Combining with ASUS SuperPixel™ Technology with the SuperPixel™ Engine that drives its software enhancement to further increases its low light performance by intelligently controlling ISO levels while shooting and noise reduction in post-shot processing. ZenFone 3 Zoom can captures up to 2.5x more light in any given circumstance compared to competing smartphones. So, ZenFone 3 Zoom is a star performer in all conditions — and cuts through the dark even when the light is low.
ASUS TriTech+™ Technology
Focus as fast as 0.03 seconds
We’ve upgraded ZenFone 3 Zoom with ASUS TriTech+™ Technology, adding an all-new Dual Pixel PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) system that uses similar technology found in DSLR cameras. Every single pixel on the Dual-Pixel sensor is used for phase detection, enabling auto-focus that’s so incredibly fast, actually the world’s fastest and seamless that even the most sudden movements are caught in the act — even when the light starts to fade. TriTech+™ also features Subject-Tracking Auto-Focus for both photos and videos to keep the object in clear focus, and Laser Auto-Focus for variable distance and lighting clarity in just 0.03 seconds.

RGB Color Correction Sensor & 4K Video
Capture the realistic moments
Smartphone photos are marred by unnatural colors, typically caused by artificial lights — so ZenFone 3 Zoom has a RGB color correction sensor to capture the true scene. It detects the type of light and automatically applies the best settings to achieve the perfect balance for natural looking colors.
