Huawei P30 Pro seems like an impressive phone when it comes to its camera specs. Singapore-based photographer Justin Ng put it to a test and took some awesome photos with Huawei’s latest flagship phone. He shot handheld in the middle of the night and managed to capture the Milky Way and star trails using nothing but his smartphone camera.
Smartphone cameras are getting better and better, plus they are easy and very intuitive to use. This is why many of us rely on them for taking photos in everyday situations. However, because of their ease of use, some camera options remain hidden and unknown to users. In this video, Evan Ranft shares three lesser-known iPhone camera features. You may not have known about them, yet they can help you take better photos with your phone camera.
Samsung has announced today the world’s first 64-megapixel sensor for smartphone cameras. The ISOCELL Bright GW1 expands Samsung’s 0.8μm image sensor lineup from existing 20Mp to ultra-high 64Mp resolutions.
This is not meant as an in-depth review of the Samsung S10+. The review will chiefly discuss the cell phone’s camera capabilities from a landscape photographer’s standpoint.
The first thing I noticed when I began using the Samsung S10+ was how well calibrated the screen is in terms of colors, black point and contrast. What I see on the display is extremely close to what I see on my calibrated computer monitor. That to such a degree that I now use my phone as a point of reference when re-calibrating my monitor.
We’ve seen magazine covers and even feature films such as Tangerine that were shot only with a smartphone. But NBC has recently done what we haven’t seen so far. For the Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the network ditched the usual format of the show and shot the entire episode using only a few of Samsung Galaxy S10+ smartphones.
Smartphone makers are racing who will make a phone with a better camera, and more camera modules. The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro have just joined the race, offering “phoneographers” a lot to play with. The Pro model features a four-camera setup, with the 40MP main sensor. It allows 5x optical zoom and optical image stabilization. Along with a few more specs, it really seems promising for all those who often shoot with their smartphone.
After a pretty abysmal launch, the RED Hydrogen One had one possible saving grace that might help see it succeed and allow RED to redeem themselves in the eyes of their customers. Not to mention the entire smartphone-buying public. That one thing was its expandability. Modules that allow the user to enhance the functionality of the device.
Now, RED seems to have silently scrapped those modules, including the camera module, after removing all traces of them from the Hydrogen One website. The change was spotted by Reddit user ReipasTietokonePoku, where it sparked off quite the discussion between owners of the phone.
Huawei was busted two times before for passing off DSLR photos as their smartphone camera images. Well, it has happened again. To show off camera capabilities of the latest P30 phone, Huawei used stock photos, as well as a photo from someone’s portfolio. Needless to say – all of them were taken with a DSLR.
Sony is famous for high-quality mirrorless cameras. Expectedly, many users have wondered: why hasn’t Sony still offered a smartphone with a killer camera? Well, there certainly are some reasons for that and the company has finally revealed them. Its plans for phone cameras turned out to be shortsighted – but it appears that this is going to change.
You’ve come a long way, baby
Once upon a time, the biggest problem with camera phones was the camera itself. One of the world’s first camera phone, the J-SH04 was released in 2000. Boy did we come a long way, right? It could should tiny 0.11 megapixels images. It went up from there. The camera is a big deal in any phone nowadays, Apple has it’s “Shot on iPhone” campaign and bunch of other brands do the same, some even partnering up with Leica to give their phone a legs up above the competition.
