Low Light Photography
The HUAWEI P30 Pro Leica Camera has a new SuperSpectrum sensor with a maximum ISO sensitivity of 409,600 for clearer and sharper lowlight photography.
You don’t need a tripod. Simply frame your shot, and press the shutter button to get your ideal photo in lowlight conditions!
Low Light Photo Example #1
Taking sunset shots has always been challenging, with the fear of losing details due to low light conditions.
However, the HUAWEI P30 Pro in its AI mode has helped me to achieve balanced shadows and highlights.
Check out how awesome the details are for both the sky and the sea. Backlight? No problem with the HUAWEI P30 Pro!

Low Light Photo Example #2
As I was on vacation in Bali, I stayed in Club Med which has Balinese architecture paired with natural elements like trees, lakes and grasslands.
This is actually a signature spot in the resort as all guests will have to walk past this stretch of rooms to reach their own.
One night, as I was walking back to the room after dinner, I realised that the night was exceptionally dark.
I knew that it was the perfect time to take a photo using the main 40MP sensor on the HUAWEI P30 Pro as it is using a new RYYB sensor, it can actually capture 40% more light than usual.
With the help of f1.6 aperture lens, I was confident that it will turn out amazing.
Well, I was right. This photo was taken with just a tap of the shutter button. No night mode or tripod needed. It’s simply mind blowing.
For the elements in the photo, I intentionally aligned the separation of real building and reflection to be 50% on top and 50% bottom to clearly show the difference and to fully expose the reflection on the lake’s surface.
