He showcased a cross-section of his exhibitions taken with various TECNO devices.

Practical! Practical!

According to Jesse Oguntimehin, PR and Strategic Partnership manager at TECNO Nigeria,

‘The revolutionary AI technology embedded in CAMON 11 PRO and CAMON 11’s camera will elevate the smartphone selfie entirely. Selfie-lovers will enjoy the high-end 24 or 16-megapixel front camera, which has advanced with intelligent features based on artificial intelligence.

The AI-technology smartly allows you to create high-quality self-portraits with natural skin color and optimize the image, achieving brighter colors and sharp contours’ A partnership with the organizers of the festival is in line with the camera-centric features of our Camon series. A win-win for both organizations’

It is worthy to note that the wonderful images taken during the photowalk of the Lagos Photo festival were showcased at the official launch of the Camon 11 and 11 Pro.
