Huawei Mate 20 Pro People's Vote March shots

I went along to the big (700,000 strong we're told) People's Vote March against Brexit yesterday and here are a few shots from the day. I only used a Huawei Mate 20 Pro smartphone.


















This last one was taken using the ultra-wide third camera (16mm equivalent on full frame).

Re: Huawei Mate 20 Pro People's Vote March shots

The Mate 20 Pro (and the P20 Pro) have 40 megapixel sensors that can record DNG RAW files. Here's my version of the lady with the trumpet, developed from RAW in Lightroom:





And here is the camera JPG:





And just to show what the sensor is capable of, here is a 1:1 crop of my RAW converted version:





Remember, this is a phone!

We will soon be thinking of them as the Camera that you can also make phone calls on.

I've now expanded on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro RAW processing mention in an article:

Re: Huawei Mate 20 Pro People's Vote March shots

The quality of the images that you've run through Lightroom are astounding.

As my LG Nexus 5x (one of the first Google phones) is beginning to slow down (although it's much improved after I deleted around 6gb of photos as they're backed up in Google photos), it'll definitely be one to consider.

What is it like in low light? That's when the 5x lets me down, as does my mirrorless so I'm still lugging the 5d3 to gigs and concerts. Mind you, when phones come out in the photopit, so does the photographer: still DSLR only in there.

Re: Huawei Mate 20 Pro People's Vote March shots

Thanks Caz. The P20 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro have class-leading low light performance for mobile phones. Some clever multiple image sampling can turn exposures of several seconds into remarkably sharp and noise-free images. There are also trick features like light painting for low light or night time use.


I was actually at a local gig the other night and used a Huawei P20 Pro, which has a similar camera, though mainly for a live Facebook stream (see https://www.facebook.com/ian.f.burle...user_video_tab - I think the privacy is set to Public).


I only took one still on the phone and wasn't really trying very hard:

Re: Huawei Mate 20 Pro People's Vote March shots

That's quite a reasonable quality for a phone gig shot, although I still don't think they'd let me take it in!

At the last festival there was one woman (with DSLR) who used flip screen and live view constantly - with up to 10-15 photographers in there having someone with their arms up in the air isn't ideal. After working round her for the first day, she was probably dazed by the number of times she got clonked round the side of the head with a 70-200 - our usual method of dealing with time wasters/liggers.

The gig was a hospice fund raiser and my neighbour plays drums with one of the bands

Re: Huawei Mate 20 Pro People's Vote March shots

You have made a believer out of me. My wife and I took shots at the Head of Charles Regatta in Boston recently and the only times we hauled out the DSLR (80-300) were for distant shots. Her iPhone 7 and my iPhone X worked fine but can't compare to the results you've gotten with the Huwei. I wonder if they ever plan to market it in the US?

Re: Huawei Mate 20 Pro People's Vote March shots

Thanks Pat. Shooting RAW with 40 megapoixels to play with is one thing and the Leica lens quality is clear to see in my Huawei shots, but I have seen some excellent iPhone X results as well. Do you shoot RAW with iPhone X?

I haven't but will experiment. I do have the free VSCO app and maybe will download Halide. I have a lot to learn!
