HUAWEI P20 Pro camera is the low-light photography king?

From: Internet

Oh, those nighttime photos. They once represented the kiss of death for smartphone cameras. Sure, smartphones function well when the sun is out, capturing everyday images of dogs jumping in the air and of course, breathtaking skylines of cities. But come night fall, the teeny tiny cameras mounted on the back of your smartphone struggle to focus, leaving only painful images of blurriness and despair.

And it doesn't matter whether the subject of the photo is well-lit or not. The lenses seemingly stumble to make sense of the image, even though it may well be visible to the human eye. Enter the HUAWEI P20 Pro : with this state-of-the-art smartphone camera, you can kiss sayonara to those grainy and unsightly pictures.

These advancements come largely out of Huawei's commitment to innovating excellence. Huawei's engineers looked first at the pitfalls of existing smartphone cameras in order to figure out the best solution moving forward. The HUAWEI P20 Pro's advanced Leica Triple Camera was born out of a partnership with – you guessed it – Leica, the German camera and lens powerhouse. The Leica triple camera with 5x Hybrid Zoom captures more light, details and beauty. For one, it has the highest total pixel count on a smartphone available in the market – the camera configuration is comprised of a 40MP RGB sensor, a 20MP monochrome sensor and an 8MP sensor with telephoto lens. Huawei did not hesitate to bring out all the megapixels it could muster to capture as much information and imagery as possible.

A key area to consider on the Leica camera is the highly sensitive image sensor. The sensor allows the camera lens to capture low-light photos up to a whopping ISO of 102400. That figure is bound to make even some professional photographers envious.

Documenting a night on the town with pit stops at the bar and nightclub doesn't seem so difficult now, with a professional quality camera – courtesy of the HUAWEI P20 Pro – in your pocket. What about the time when hands shake from downing perhaps too many beers? The shaky motion of smartphones is infamous, given the compact design and lightweight nature of these devices. Sometimes, we lose grip while pressing the shutter and the whole image turns into a blur of unidentifiable objects.

AIS enables crisp handheld night shots

The HUAWEI P20 Pro has you covered on that front, too. Embedded AI allows the phone to automatically detect shaky motion and immediately stabilize the image. HUAWEI AIS steadies handheld night shots for incredible long exposure images without the use of a tripod. The camera system also provides a 4D predictive focus, which allows the camera to predict moving objects and focus on them to capture minute details. The P20 Pro's camera houses a predetermined 19 scenario library, using it in real time to select photography modes and camera settings in order to deliver incredible, professional shots based on the situation at hand.

No wonder the HUAWEI P20 Pro can be called the "Low-Light Photography King." The Leica partnership has paid dividends for Huawei's camera engineering technology. This triple-lens camera system seems tiny, but it is jam-packed with features that will make even a professional photographer blush at first sight. Next time, when you head out to the take in the beautiful city view at the top of the mountain or when you are taking a shot of a dinner party, the HUAWEI P20 Pro will surely impress. No more blur; no more pixelated shots. Only crystal clear images will live on your smartphone – even in the middle of the night.
