Huawei P30 Pro Cameras and the Evolution of Light Explained

The camera array of the Huawei P30 Pro is built around a primary 40-MP F/1.6 camera that has optical image stabilisation (OIS) that does most of the heavy work. This is complemented by a secondary 20-MP F/2.2 camera with an ultra wide angle lens, an 8-MP OIS-equipped telephoto camera capable of an impressive 5X optical zoom and a 50X combined zoom and a Time of Flight (TOF) camera.

Combined, this setup allows the P30 Pro to tackle the gamut of photography scenarios and to be able to effortlessly capture stunning low light photos with a stunning 409,600 ISO . This far surpasses most smartphone cameras and easily goes into DSLR territory to enable the P30 Pro to capture breathtaking nightscapes, starlit skies and more.

This ability to capture better low light shots is on account of Huawei’s revolutionary approach towards light as the P30 series cameras use a unique new Huawei RYYB SuperSpectrum sensor that allows for 40% increased light sensitivity as it uses yellow sub-pixels rather than the conventional green ones in most RGB sensors used in other smartphones. Check out these shots. Even in dim environments, the P30 Pro is capable of capturing nuances of colour, light and detail that are truly impressive indeed.

This ability to capture low light images even extends to video recording too as the Huawei P30 series phones and in particular the P30 Pro are able to capture luscious footage even in dim light settings.
