In this month-long celebration of Filipinos' devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, towns get adorned in vibrant colors, churches are filled with a kaleidoscope of flowers, and people gather together to celebrate fiestas. Besides the gastronomic delights, there is singing and dancing, even bands and contests to cap the night.

One, two, three…say Reyna!
Is a dear friend or cousin at the Santa Cruzan this year? Then you are probably the designated photographer. Or, maybe you are just there to watch the parade? 

Either way, capture all the stunning ladies in their dazzling gowns and their dashing escorts with the vivo V27 Series. The advanced camera features of the latest smartphone make it possible to take studio-quality photos of all the queens in all their splendid aura without the need for a professional camera. 

The vivo V27 Series is powered by the first-of-its-kind Aura Portrait Algorithm, a camera system made up of three features -- the Sony IMX766V, the Aura Light and vivo's Advanced Portrait Mode. 

The Sony IMX766V, vivo's new and large camera sensor which boosts image quality and vibrance by increasing the amount of light six times when photos are shot at low-light conditions to yield images that are bright and vivid. 

Aura Light, vivo's new upgraded camera flash that resembles the appearance and capabilities of a ring light, is designed specifically for taking portraits. This feature lights up your subject's face for more refined skin tones and rich facial details. With the Sony IMX766V and the Aura Light combined, your portraits can reflect the natural beauty of all the Santacruzan queens and escorts as well as the colors and intricate details of their outfits, flowers, and arcs.

vivo's Advanced Portrait Mode further helps enrich photo quality.

It also supports a new Low-Light Portrait feature that adds tones to the background to make radiant, bring out stunning details and emotions. The Portrait Mode works harmoniously with the Aura Light.
