The difference between a photograph taken with a professional camera versus a mobile phone is indisputable, especially when it comes to night time shots. The main reason for this disparity in quality is simple: light. The amount of light, whether natural, artificial or an adjustment of settings, is what determines the caliber of your picture.
The most obvious challenge of taking pictures at night is that there is little or no light. It’s hard enough to capture a moment when you’re using an expensive SLR or a digital point-and-shoot camera, so there’s just no point trying with a mobile phone because we usually end up with blurry blips instead of dramatic crystal clear images under starry skies. But the HUAWEI P20 Pro’s groundbreaking low light and night modes have defied odds to produce some of the most vibrant, clear and detailed night time photos ever taken with a smartphone.
Equipped with the Leica triple-camera system, the HUAWEI P20 Pro not only brings to consumers a whole new perspective, but also leads the trend of smartphone photography, completely surpassing any and all expectations that the global consumers have for smartphones.
When the AI-powered real-time scene and object recognition technology of the HUAWEI P20 Pro detects a night shooting scene, it will automatically start a night mode, which brings an enhanced intelligent photography experience, which according to Huawei, can recognize more than 500 scenarios in 19 categories for users to choose the right skills at the right moment.
In addition, after the mode is enabled, the HUAWEI P20 Pro determines the exposure time between 3 and 10 seconds based on the specific scenario.
Does the 3-second exposure time need a tripod? The answer is No. The HUAWEI P20 Pro uses Huawei AIS (AI Image Stabilization) technology to recognize objects with an AI algorithm, then filters and corrects images as a result of shifts and blurs caused by an unsteady hand holding. In actual experience, the night shoot does not demand high requirements for users, as long as the hands do not shake badly. In a word, this mode is easy to use for everyone. So, how amazing are photos taken in the night mode? Let’s take a look at some samples.
With the master stabilization technology, the phone also enables users to capture steady, clear and detailed video footage of something like a moving vehicle, ensuring you never miss capturing a moment.
From this photo, we can see that the HUAWEI P20 Pro enabled with the night mode has vibrant, clear and detailed night time photos. There is no overexposure and dazzling light in the bright area. Overall, the resolution, width, and noise control of the last photo are excellent.
After the experience, the night mode of HUAWEI P20 Pro is undoubtedly the best mobile night mode at the moment. We can easily get high-quality photos through simple operation almost automatic. For night shoots, we don’t need any preparation, AI have already enabled the mode in the background, what we need to do is holding our phone and taking a shoot.
