How The P30 Leica Camera Rewrites The Rules Of Photography!

Here are the top five P30 Leica camera features that will rewrite the rules of mobile photography.

New RYYB Image Sensor

The new P30 Leica camera uses a new RYYB image sensor that collects 40% more light than traditional RGGB image sensors. This allows the HUAWEI P30 and P30 Pro to take photos even in near darkness.

Believe it or not, the picture below was taken by the HUAWEI P30 Pro in near darkness – just 1 lux of light!

SuperZoom Capability

The HUAWEI P30 Leica camera uses a new periscope telephoto lens design to deliver more optical zoom with optical image stabilisation. 

  • HUAWEI P30 : 3X optical zoom5X hybrid zoom, 30X maximum zoom.
  • HUAWEI P30 Pro : 5X optical zoom, 10X hybrid zoom, 50X maximum zoom.

How useful is SuperZoom? Take a look at this 10X hybrid zoom sample of the Milan Cathedral.

Even though it was taken at night, you can clearly see not only the words, Mariae Nascenti; but also the intricate details of the stained glass and wall carvings.

SuperZoom also allows for easier wildlife photography. This shot, for example, was taken from a distance of 10 meters.

Both SuperZoom and the ultra-high resolution of the 40 MP main camera allows for great sports photography. You can capture the action from a distance, and “zoom in” even after taking the photo!

TOF Camera

The HUAWEI P30 Pro comes with a ToF (Time-of-Flight) camera which creates a 3D map of objects and their distances. 

This allows the P30 Pro to accurately separate the subject from the background, for accurate retouching and background blurring. This sample demonstrates how the background is blurred with a natural bokeh effect without affecting the mother and her son.

AI HDR+ Technology

One of the most challenging photos to take is of a subject with a bright background. Even worse if the sun is in the back!

To address this, both HUAWEI P30 and P30 Pro use AI HDR+ to let the front or rear cameras take multiple photos in quick succession. They are then combined to eliminate overexposed and backlit images, bringing out the subject, without overblowing the bright background.


Ultra-Wide Angle + Macro

The .HUAWEI P30 and P30 Pro come with an ultra-wide camera that allows for both a wider perspective, and a Super Macro mode.
