Cool pho­tog­ra­phy fea­tures that cater to our day and age so­cial me­dia needs

As time pro­gresses we change our habits of how we do things. Decades or even hun­dreds of years ago, peo­ple knew about their an­ces­tors and older gen­er­a­tions through books and sto­ry­telling – or re­lay­ing their own unique ver­sion of events to oth­ers. They ei­ther saw events and oc­ca­sions with their bare eyes or they sim­ply missed out on them.

Fast for­ward to our day and age our sto­ry­telling ways have dra­mat­i­cally changed. We still keep photo al­bums and read di­aries to learn of the lives of our grand­par­ents or those of our par­ents, but we tend to rely heav­ily on dig­i­tal con­tent – videos, images and texts. The un­prece­dented surge in pop­u­lar­ity of photo and video-based so­cial me­dia plat­forms has trans­fixed us and made it nec­es­sary to cap­ture all mo­ments from the vivid to the more bor­ing ones.

Smart­phone man­u­fac­tures, such as Huawei, un­der­stand users’ needs to have phones with high-end cam­eras that can cap­ture the most ex­pan­sive to the tini­est as­pects of their lives. Launched in 2018, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is one of the phones that are able to meet to­day users’ dig­i­tal con­tent de­mands and as­pi­ra­tions.

The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro’ ma­trix cam­era ar­range­ment is com­posed of three cam­eras – 40MP, 20MP and 8MP – and an aper­ture of up to f/1.8. This pro­vides users with greater cre­ative free­dom as they can cap­ture not only wider, but also shoot from an­gles that were pre­vi­ously not fea­si­ble.

For the lat­est it­er­a­tion of the 40MP Le­ica Triple Cam­era, Huawei in­cor­po­rates a 20MP Le­ica Ul­tra-Wide An­gle Lens to bring a wider per­spec­tive to users. This wider per­spec­tive cre­ates a sense of spa­cious­ness and a three di­men­sional ef­fect. It’s easy to cap­ture ul­tra-wide an­gle images – users need to zoom out to cap­ture beau­ti­ful land­scapes, por­traits or group pho­tos with the new per­spec- tive.

In­dus­try-Lead­ing Macro Pho­tog­ra­phy Sup­port

The HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro’s Le­ica Ul­tra-Wide An­gle Lens has a wide aper­ture that al­lows users to land a fo­cus on ob­jects closer to the lens with­out re­quir­ing more work done by the mo­tor.

In Su­per Macro mode, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro lets users cap­ture ob­jects that are as close as 2.5cm from the lens - ex­ceed­ing even the ca­pa­bil­ity of the hu­man eye, let­ting users to en­joy pho­tog­ra­phy with a handy smart­phone. Long ex­po­sure pho­tog­ra­phy The long ex­po­sure pho­tog­ra­phy ca­pac­ity en­ables the cam­era to cre­ate sharper and more vivid images, per­fect for cap­tur­ing glit­ter­ing stars in the sky, light trails and wa­ter­falls. Even in the ab­sence of am­bi­ent light, the long ex­po­sure and high light sen­si­tiv­ity make it pos­si­ble for users to shoot high qual­ity pho­tos that cap­ture in­tri­cate de­tails. AI Color The AI com­put­ing pow­ered by Dual-NPU Kirin 980 and GPU Turbo ren­der­ing to­gether en­able the smart­phone to sep­a­rate sub­jects and back­ground in a video in real time and leave a spe­cific color to the sub­ject. By learn­ing from a mas­sive quan­tity of pho­tos fea­tur­ing hu­man sub­jects, the AI Color func­tion can track the hu­man sub­jects across video frames and ac­cu­rately sep­a­rate them from the back­ground in real time, and then de­sat­u­rate the back­ground. Com­pared to other sim­i­lar fea­tures on the mar­ket, the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro de­liv­ers much bet­ter speed and ac­cu­racy in color iso­la­tion. Thanks to the DualNPU, AI Color can rec­og­nize and sep­a­rate mul­ti­ple sub­jects from the back­ground si­mul­ta­ne­ously. Cin­e­matic as­pect ra­tio At the same time, HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro sup­ports video cap­ture with 2560x1080 high res­o­lu­tion and in ul­tra-wide 21:9 ra­tio. Com­pared to the con­ven­tional 16:9 ra­tio, the 21:9 ra­tio can make videos look more “cin­e­matic”. The AI-pow­ered HDR and Le­ica Ul­tra Wide An­gle Lens also add spa­cious­ness to the video clips and can greatly im­prove im­age qual­ity. AI Spot­light Reel An­other in­ter­est­ing video fea­ture on the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro is Spot­light Reel. Ac­ces­si­ble from the Gallery app, it scans through the li­brary for a sub­ject of a user’s choice and gen­er­ates a mon­tage of that per­son. Not only can it com­bine mul­ti­ple clips to­gether, it does so while elim­i­nat­ing un­needed footage – the only in­put re­quired from the user is to pick whom they want to fea­ture.
