How The P30 Leica Camera Rewrites The Rules Of Photography!

The new HUAWEI P30 and P30 Pro are more than just smartphones. They boast a new Leica camera that was designed specifically to “rewrite the rules of photographyIn this article, we will look at how the new P30 Leica camera delivers new heights of mobile photography!

 

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.

 

You Don’t Need The P30 Leica Camera To Join The NEXT Image Awards!

The capabilities of the new HUAWEI P30 Leica camera will make it easy for anyone to take great photos. In fact, you can show off your new photographic abilities at the NEXT Image Awards, and win the US$ 20,000 cash prize, and other great prizes!

HUAWEI P30 Pro SuperZoom Samples From Blue Concert!

The HUAWEI P30 Pro boasts an amazing 5X optical zoom, with up to 50X digital zoom. How good is it? Check out these P30 Pro SuperZoom shots from the recent Blue concert!

Find out why the P30 Pro SuperZoom capability is a killer feature!

 

Concert Photography Made Possible?

Everyone LOVES a good concert, and what better way to memorialise it than to take photos of your favourite singers belting it out LIVE?

The only problem? It’s quite impossible to take decent shots using any smartphone if you are seated at a distance from the stage. More so when the light show at concerts can wreak havoc with the colour, contrast and brightness of the photos!

All changes with the new HUAWEI P30 Pro smartphone!

HUAWEI P30 Pro SuperZoom Samples From Blue Concert! 

At the recent concert by British boyband Blue, a certain member of Team HUAWEI took a dozen shots using the new HUAWEI P30 Pro smartphone… from the back of the hall!

This is, as far as we know, the first trial of the HUAWEI P30 Pro camera in a concert setting. The photos were then cropped to compare the quality at three zoom ranges – Normal Shot, Close Shot, and Super Close Shot.

Although HUAWEI did not reveal the actual zoom ratio, we reckon Close Shot is using their 10X Hybrid Zoom, while Super Close Shot is using their 50X digital zoom.

Those HUAWEI P30 Pro camera samples are incredibly good. You can clearly see the Blue band members in the close shots.

Its super zoom capability not only allows you to take close-up shots of the band from across the hall, it lets you zoom past the crowd. No more ‘head shots”. No need to pay for expensive front row seats!

HUAWEI P30 Pro SuperZoom Camera Details

The HUAWEI P30 Pro features a new Leica quad-camera system, made up of :

  • a 40 MP main camera with a super-bright f/1.6 aperture,
  • 20 MP ultra-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture,
  • an 8 MP SuperZoom telephoto camera with f/2.4 aperture, and
  • a Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera.

The P30 Pro SuperZoom telephoto camera supports 5X optical zoom, 10X hybrid zoom and 50X digital zoom.

Richard Yu, CEO of HUAWEI Technologies Consumer Business Group, leaked the P30 Pro’s SuperZoom capability when he earlier released an image of the superman on his Weibo account.

The watermark suggests that this moon shot was taken with the HUAWEI P30 Pro, using its quad-lens Leica camera.

You may recall that last year’s HUAWEI P20 Pro introduced the world’s first triple-lens camera, with 3X zoom. The same ground-breaking Leica camera was also used in the HUAWEI Mate 20 Pro, allowing both smartphones to achieve a class-topping DxOMark score of 109 points!

The HUAWEI P30 Pro vs HUAWEI P30 Comparison Guide!

Now that HUAWEI introduced the P30 Pro and the P30, you may be wondering – how different are they? To make it easy for you, we prepared this P30 Pro vs. P30 comparison guide!

 

HUAWEI P30 Pro vs P30 Comparison – Features

Display

The HUAWEI P30 Pro has a larger 6.47-inch curved OLED display. The P30, on the other hand, has a smaller 6.1-inch flat OLED display.

Because their display panels have the same display resolutions, this means the larger P30 Pro display has a slightly lower pixel density than the smaller P30 display.

Rear Cameras

The HUAWEI P30 Pro features a new Leica quad-camera system, made up of :

  • a 40 MP main camera with a super-bright f/1.6 aperture,
  • 20 MP ultra-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture,
  • an 8 MP SuperZoom telephoto camera with f/2.4 aperture, and
  • a Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera.

The P30 Pro’s SuperZoom telephoto camera supports 5X optical zoom, 10X hybrid zoom and 50X digital zoom.

The HUAWEI P30, on the other hand, has a Leica triple camera system, made up of :

  • a 40 MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture,
  • a 16 MP ultra-wide angle camera with f/2.2 aperture, and
  • an 8 MP telephoto camera with f/2.4 aperture.

Its telephoto camera supports 3X optical zoom, 5X hybrid zoom and 10X digital zoom.

ToF Camera vs Laser Auto-Focus

The P30 Pro has a Time of Flight (ToF) camera, which does not actually take any photos. It creates a 3D map of objects and their distances using pulses of invisible near infra-red light.

The P30 does not have the ToF camera, and uses a laser auto-focus system instead.

SuperSpectrum Sensor ISO Rating

Both models use the 1/1.7-inch 40 MP SuperSpectrum sensor, which uses a new RYYB filter to extend its ISO rating.

However, the P30 Pro supports up to ISO 409,600, while the P30 will only support up to ISO 204,800.

Acoustic Display Technology

This is a similar technology to Sony Acoustic Surface Audio, where actuators vibrate the display to produce sound.

Only the P30 Pro comes with this feature, replacing the lower speaker with the acoustic display. The P30 comes with two regular speakers.

SuperCool Technology

Both models will feature HUAWEI SuperCool technology to keep the Kirin 980 cool, even during long gaming sessions.

However, only the P30 Pro will use both graphene film and a heat pipe to quickly conduct and shift heat away from the CPU and GPU. The P30, on the other hand, will only use graphene film.

Storage

In certain countries, the P30 comes with just 64 GB of storage. The P30 is available in two other storage capacities – 128 GB and 256 GB.

The minimum storage capacity for the P30 Pro, on the other hand, is 128 GB, with options for 256 GB and 512 GB of storage.

Both models support additional storage via HUAWEI’s NM card, instead of microSD cards.

Dust + Water Resistance

The P30 Pro is IP68-rated, which means it is sealed against dust and can be immersed in over 1 meter of water for at least 30 minutes.

The regular P30 is just splash-resistant, with an IP53 rating. It should withstand water sprayed on it (e.g. rain) for up to 5 minutes.

Battery + Recharging

The HUAWEI P30 Pro comes with a larger 4,200 mAh battery and supports 40 W SuperCharge 2.0, as well as 15 W Wireless QuickCharge.

The regular P30, on the other hand, has a 3,650 mAh battery and only supports 22.5 W SuperCharge. It does not support wireless charging.

Size + Weight

The P30 Pro is naturally larger and heavier than the P30. It is slightly wider by 2 mm and very slightly thicker by 0.8 mm, but almost 9 mm taller and weighs 27 grams more.
