Huawei Mate 30 Pro Photo Experience: Save Your Breath!


[Bestbuy618 Mobile Channel]The three most popular smartphones in the second half of 2019 are the iPhone 11 series, the Samsung Note 10 series, and the Huawei Mate 30 series. Surprisingly, all three brands’ flagship smartphones have been improved this year with a focus on “shooting.” DXOMark has already announced the photo results of Samsung and Huawei, while Apple remains unknown. According to the DXOMark ranking, Huawei surpassed the Samsung Note 10 with 121 points with the Mate 30 Pro, ahead of the second-ranked Samsung Note 10 /Note 10 5G with 117 points.

However, in the front shoot, Samsung (99) scored higher than Huawei (93). Regardless, the Huawei Mate30 Pro’s rear camera has proven to be powerful with its scores, and as users, what can we take away from the experience? I had a photo shooting experience with Huawei Mate30 Pro not long ago, and this time I will not only talk to you about the phone, but also some of the differences between the phone and DSLR in terms of photo taking.

The Huawei Mate30 Pro has a 40-megapixel movie camera (1/1.54-inch type sensor, ultra-wide angle), a 40-megapixel ultra-sensitive camera (1/1.7-inch type sensor, supports optical stabilization), an 8-megapixel telephoto camera (also supports optical stabilization), and a 3D deep camera.

Next, let’s talk about the sample photos. In terms of color saturation, Huawei Mate 30 Pro is equipped with Huawei’s latest generation flagship chip Kirin 990, with its own research Da Vinci architecture NPU, AI arithmetic power is greatly improved, which also means that the AI photo function of Huawei Mate 30 Pro has been enhanced. So, with the “AI filter,” the photos will be very pleasing to the eyes.

What does it mean for us to have a smartphone that supports AI photography? Simply put, it’s easier to take good photos – the first one saves your mind. Take the food that many partners frequently shoot for example, before we use smartphones, we need to shoot after the color, brightness, and other adjustments, or with the help of third-party APP, in order to get the “beautiful food” photos.

However, when AI is added, the phone automatically recognizes the subject as food, and after algorithmic optimization, the “food” automatically becomes very appetizing. At the same time, in the camera’s viewfinder, we can see the “PS” after the final photo will appear in the circle of friends, so you can adjust in time, rather than pressing the shutter to get the photo, or even modify it and then go to re-shoot. and at this point, the table with you has cast a hungry resentful gaze.

Of course, AI auto-recognition is applicable not only to this aspect, but also to portraits and other images. Because the Huawei Mate30 Pro has a 3D deep camera, you can get a better background bokeh effect in portrait mode, highlighting people. Of course, you are also finished with beauty and other work, if needed, as evidenced by the sample photos, which show that not only is the bokeh of the small sister’s body edges overly natural, but also that the hair, hair ends, and hair strands are not obviously smeared.

It can be said that the excellent depth of field effect can be guaranteed even in the case of complex background. Of course, in addition to portraits, if you like to take some photos with a sense of literature, then the bokeh brought by the 3D deep camera is the “secret weapon.” Or perhaps the phone includes a camera that integrates the functions of numerous third-party apps – the second saving.

In terms of the third saving, the Huawei Mate30 Pro supports 3x optical zoom, 5x hybrid zoom, and 30x digital zoom.

5x zoom30x zoom DSLR students may have the impression that the body is only expensive, but the lens is a bottomless pit. Even if we buy a zoom lens, we may still want to experiment with other options, such as travel photography, which will undoubtedly add to the burden. The lens and body weight are greater than that of the smartphone.

Huawei’s response is a wider zoom range. At the same time, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro’s 40-megapixel main camera and 8-megapixel telephoto lens both support OIS optical stabilization, which is useful for the stability of zoom shots (including Super Night View mode) and, of course, the short videos that everyone enjoys shooting.

Zooming in opens up more photo opportunities, and if the ultra-wide angle is included, the composition will benefit as well.Normal mode shootingWide angle mode shooting

When you are limited by location, it is difficult to get enough distance to shoot, ultra-wide angle lens can make up for this difficulty. The phone is not all-powerful, but it really saves AI, filters, zoom, three advantages make Huawei Mate30 Pro has a convenient, rich photo experience. So, is there a difference between this and a DSLR? It’s difficult to say no here. However, as the article repeatedly emphasizes, taking photos with a great smartphone allows you to save more heart and experiment more.

More than one friend or colleague has asked me how to improve their photo taking skills. Is it necessary to first purchase a good camera? My answer is simple: you must first go shoot, regardless of what you shoot with! In my experience, even if many students purchase a DSLR, they will not use it to take pictures for two reasons: DSLR has a threshold, the operation is complicated; DSLR is not easy to carry, especially when multiple lenses are required.

SLR image quality is good, SLR price is high you accept, but with the weapon in hand, but only as an ornamental? This feeling is as if it is a meter in front of the goal, kicked the ball away! So to improve their photo experience, the most critical is to press the shutter and start shooting! This happens to be what many students do not do. So what is good about smartphones in comparison? As for the first question, is there a threshold for using smartphones to take pictures? To say there isn’t may be a bit of an exaggeration, but even if there is, it’s easily surpassed. Using a smartphone to take pictures to get started and improve is a very good choice, which is very clear after using the Huawei Mate 30 Pro for a period of time.

Because it is easy to shoot and feature-rich, you can try more, and at the same time, because the task of the post to the phone automatically, we shoot photos are often very pleasing to the eye, but also to give themselves some incentive, and in the “circle of friends” to gain recognition. So back to the Huawei Mate30 Pro photo experience, “save”! To summarize, if you enjoy taking photos and want to improve your skills, the Huawei Mate30 Pro is a good choice. Give yourself a relatively “high” starting point, and you’ll be able to reduce your “hands-on time” and produce more wonderful images.
