Huawei mate 20 kamera

A different triple camera

Both girlfriend 20 phones verpacktem triple-camera setups v dual-LED speed on their backs. Those four sachen are packed together right into a square that need to go down in history as die signature entwurf feature von this huawei Mate generation.

The setup waves goodbye to ns monochrome und we won"t fehlschlagen it much. It was very helpful zum boosting low-light performance prior to chipsets could do multi-frame image stacking for noise reduction, but jetzt all it offers are slightly far better artsy black and white shots und we kann agree huawei did die right thing von putting a wideangle camera instead. Die setup is Leica-branded, coming with die exclusive color filters if those happen to be her thing.

Even despite the huawei Mate 20 package a triple camera setup comparable to die Mate 20 jeden (wide, regular, telephoto), none of the cameras used match. Die Mate 20 has a major 12MP 1/2.3" shooter through 27mm f/1.8 lens and an 8MP snapper v 54mm f/2.4 lens for telephoto purposes. The final camera ist a 16MP one through ultra-wide angle 17mm f/2.2 lens. All von them lack optical stabilization.

As in added bonus to ns ultra-wide-angle camera, huawei says everyone möchte be able kommen sie shoot some impressive macro shots v it as the phone kann sein focus from together close as 2.5cm.

Huawei friend 20 offers only 2x optical zoom - there is no hybrid zoom nor 80mm 3x lens as was die case on ns Pro. You will find 2x option in its camera app, while ns wide-angle camera ist called 0.6x.

The camera anwendung is enhanced von Huawei"s AI nur as before. There ist Master AI 2.0, which kann now recognize und tune settings zum up kommen sie 1,500 various scenes. Huawei has make it much less aggressive on the trees und skies, after ns negative rückmeldung it received for the P20 pro where the Greenery and Blue Sky settings were over die top. Us are glücklich with ns presets provided on the Mate 20 but if you"d like zu keep die Master AI rotate off, die switch zum that is in the Camera app"s setups page.

The camera anwendung itself hasn"t changed much since die P20 series. Zuerst off, you schutz a mode selector on die bottom. You swipe left or right zu change modes, but you can"t swipe on ns viewfinder, nur on ns selector itself. Swiping up and down doesn"t switch between front und rear camera either, you oase a taste for that (admittedly, it"s at ns bottom within simple reach). Basically, you"re still wasting the viewfinder by not having actually gestures allowed on it, except for pinch to zoom.

As zum switching betwee cameras, a tap on die "1x" button an the viewfinder toggles consecutively ns "2x" (54mm), und the "0.6x" (17mm) cameras.

There"s a jeden mode right here where you tun können adjust parameters yourself - ISO (50 kommen sie 3,200), shutter rate (1/4000s zu 30s), exposure compensation (-4 kommen sie +4EV bei 1/3 stop increments), and white balance (presets and specific temperature). You can also choose the metering setting (matrix, center-weighted and spot), and the focus mode (single, continuous and manual). If die phone thinks you messed up the exposure, in icon wollen pop up to warn you.

The monochrome mode is blieb available bei spite des the mate 20 not having a specialized B&W camera. It"s bei the "More" section, where ns extra modes are: Monochrome, Panorama, und HDR, among others. And while we"re at it, what"s with die manual HDR mode wie man everyone else has actually some sort of wagen HDR already enabled?

Since bokeh effects came to be all the rage, huawei phones oase had both a Portrait mode, and bei Aperture mode. There"s now more differentiation than ever between the two. An Aperture you kann choose ns simulated aperture in the range from f/0.95 zu f/16. Post shot, you kann sein change the aperture und the focus point within ns Gallery.

In Portrait mode you can enable und disable the background blur (why disable it if you"ve chosen ns mode bei the first place, though), but freundin can also choose die bokeh shapes - circles, hearts, swirl or discs - which kann produce some really kühl effects! freundin can deshalb opt zum simulated lighting, and you kann sein even add some beautification ~ above a range from 0 to 10.

The friend 20 records video up zu 4K resolution punkt 30fps - there"s blieb no 4K/60fps mode, though. Freundin can, however, choose bolzen h.264 and h.265.

There"s supervisor slow-mo recording together well, an what"s become ns industry-standard 720p/960fps, as well as "regular" slow-mo in 720p/240 und 1080p/120fps. While ns regular slow-mo clips are just limited an length über your totally free storage, the super slow-mo clips last precisely 10s - 6s of slow-mo und two seconds des regular speed activity on both ends.

Huawei zu sein offering the so-called HiVision smart assistant as part of the camera app. It"s basically bei alternative to clever Lens, automatically recognizing landmarks, art, und food. Some von the smart functions include buchstabe translation and calories count.

Image quality

While die 0.6x mode isn"t die default one when you anfang the camera, us figured it"s the right location to anfang with ns examining von the mate 20"s bild quality.

There zu sein plenty of resolved detail in the photos we took with the ultra-wide-angle camera. Die color rendition zu sein excellent, true kommen sie life, die noise levels are an extremely low, und the dynamic range zu sein often superb, more than likely due to die multi-stacking magic.

There zu sein corner softness, but it is much less noticeable than on what we observed on die Mate 20 jeden pictures. The chromatic aberrations, which room expected with such a broad lens, are so rarer on the Mate 20 images than on die Pro"s.

The ultra-wide-angle camer can deshalb do weil das macro shots. This are fairly good in quality and will do for the sometimes shooting des flower petals, bugs, und other tiny strange things. Yes, chromatic aberration is noticeable here and there, but it"s not too bad.

Moving on to ns regular photos. Those come from die 12MP sensor with ns bright f/1.8 lens. There ist one easy dominance with ns Mate 20 - if die ultra-wide-angle camera didn"t take it it, climate it"s a 12MP photo. That"s right; even the 8MP telephoto camera spits out 12MP images.

Anyway, die regular camera photos in good light are great. There is plenty von detail, impressive dynamic range, lively and accurate colors, superb contrast, and, overall, really mature handling rendition. Die foliage presentation sometimes has the painfully familiar oil-painting look, yet we guess: v this is the preis to pay for the structure stacking. It"s not always that bad, not at all, yet some of the greenery could have looked better.

So, ns 12MP consistent viewing edge photos are great looking and we are confident many users will be glücklich with them.

The 54mm tele camera is only 8MP, but die photos we gain out it space 12MP, dafür we suspect ns 12MP one lends a hand through some bild stacking because wie there"s sufficient light die per-pixel detail is close kommen sie what the taste camera produces. Die upscaling artefacts are there, yet they space really hard kommen sie spot. The color, contrast, and dynamic selection are good, although ns noise levels are a little higher.

Remember ns overly aggressive understand AI on the huawei P20? an excellent news, folks, ausführung 2.0 has actually been reworked, und we no longer obtain over-the-top Greenery and Blue Skies photos. If die phone recognizes a Blue skies or Greenery scene, the algorithm applies only a minor contrast boost und very slim extra saturation des the blues or greens. But nothing over ns top as on die P20.

Now, it"s time zu move zu those low-light scenes. Zum the sake des consistency, we began from die wide-angle camera when more.

The 16MP camera has actually f/2.2 aperture und isn"t optically stabilized. The image quality turned the end abysmal - ns resolved detail is really low, the noise levels are extremely high, and you kann barely see what"s top top them. Unlike die Mate 20 Pro, die Mate 20 ultra-wide-angle camera isn"t fitted zum low-light shots.

Luckily, this is where the Night mode comes in. It wollen produce quite usable wide-angle pictures, also if it has its limitations. It create pseudo lang exposures über stacking multiple frames gathering light along the way. We"re talk three-, occasionally five-second-long hand-held exposures which would certainly otherwise result in a blurry mess. Those are notfall always keepers und you blieb need to oase a fairly steady hand, but you"ll be getting usable photos an situations you"d otherwise acquire none. The phone deshalb does a remarkable job of retaining color where rather would shed saturation.

The 12MP low-light photos we took through the taste camera are an extremely good. It has actually bright f/1.8 aperture und even though it lacks optical stabilization, die shutter speed won"t go reduced than 1/25s, so blurred bild are highly unlikely.

And ns pictures are great - plenty des detail, quite exposure, wonderful contrast, and some an extremely nice-looking colors. If understand AI zu sein enabled, it wollen rarely use die Night Mode wie using the regular camera. Die noise zu sein well managed, although the Mate 20 Pro blieb has an edge there.

The Night mode produces brighter images and pops more detail in both shadows and highlights. Relocating subject wollen get blurred, but other than that - those turn out to be some impressive photos.

Finally, huawei Mate 20 won"t use its telephoto camera hinweisen night, nur like plenty of other flagships do. Instead, it möchte crop and digitally zoom from die regular 12MP camera and the top quality is, understandably, an extremely poor.
