Budding videographers and content creators can take advantage of the enhanced Quad Rear Camera consisting of a 48MP main camera, an 8MP wide angle lens, a 13MP telephoto lens and a 2MP mono lens and supported by 5x Hybrid Zoom.

On Overcoming Creative Block
The Reno2 official brand ambassadors are Gabbi Garcia, Mikael Daez, Daniel Marsh and Laureen Uy. As content creators, they all share the same goal of self-expression through videos and other forms of media. With the rise of video platforms like YouTube and TikTok, possibilities are endless with the innovative OPPO Reno 2 series.
In exclusive interviews with Wonder, the OPPO ambassadors shared tangible ways to overcome creative block for days when it's difficult to create. Actress and content creator (plus our cover star for January!) Gabbi Garcia shares, “The thing is, I don’t really pressure myself when creating content. I’m not a full-time vlogger. I try to be more authentic, so I don’t really push it. I wait for moments worth vlogging—and worth creating for. The vlogs are more for a special case [scenario]. If I want to showcase something personal, then I will vlog it.”
Cebuano-Irish travel vlogger Daniel Marsh has sound advice for content creators: simply put, take a break. He remarks, “With content these days, quality [plus] quantity is the ultimate formula, right? That’s usually how you deal with days when you can’t be organic or you can’t be creative. Ultimately, my suggestion is just to take a break and reanalyze yourself because, when you come back, you come back stronger—with a vengeance. Yes, you get the views [when] you follow a simple peg and a formula but, ultimately, it burns you out. Mentally, you don’t feel like you’re growing, especially when you’re a creative. Sometimes, I would just advise people to take a break, look at it from a different perspective and come back again.”
For actor and YouTuber Mikael Daez, traveling allows him to look at things from a different angle. He notes, “For me, traveling helps. It puts you in a new setting; something new helps with creativity. Whenever I might get [creative block], I just gotta get up and go.” In the panel interview, he also shared how moving is the simplest way to start creating—that is, even if you feel unqualified or unprepared. As the saying goes, just do it.
