Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Those starting with mobile photography but don’t have enough cash to burn during the pandemic could opt for the premium-looking phone TECNO Camon 17P.

The budget-friendly Camon 17P is perfect for Gen Zs who want to document their lockdown life while under stay-at-home orders. It has four cameras - a 64-megapixel (MP) main shooter with an f/1.79 aperture, a 2MP-macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor - both with f/2.4 apertures, and a Quarter Video Graphics Array (QVGA) AI lens. As any mobile photography enthusiast would know, a quad-camera phone like Camon 17P provides a greater field of depth and better pictures.
