The quality of photos taken by the smartphone is a key factor for many when choosing a device. As a rule, however, manufacturers in this field allow themselves to save themselves when they want to deliver a budget device to the market, which almost everyone can afford. And in this matter, however, there is development and positive changes, which is the best example of the recently Huawei P Smart2021.
Alliance of optics and software h2>
to understand where the potential of the camera system used comes from In Huawei P Smart 2021, a smartphone, which was valued at only less than PLN 700, two issues should be taken into account. The first of these is, of course, the optics used. On the back housing of the device there are four in series lenses, each of which has a different function. The main camera has a resolution of 48 pixels and an aperture f/1.8 - it can be considered the foundation of Huawei photographic capabilities, but this is just the beginning.
The manufacturer also used a lens that allows you to take wide -angle photos with aperture f/2.4 (to start Tele mode, just move the application zoom zoom below item 1.0). In addition, there is also a two -megapixel objects used to take photos of Marko with aperture f/2.4, which allows you to get focus at a distance of up to 4 centimeters dividing the smartphone from the object. The icing on the cake, however, a two -megapixel lens for measuring depths with aperture f/2.4. It is worth paying special attention to him, because it is something that we usually do not experience in smartphones from this price shelf.
The depth lens works primarily in the case of portraits and photos of individual objects with a distant background, as well as in Macro mode . Affordable smartphones use a cheap trick for the effect of obtaining the background blur - the apparatus applications recognize the edges of the object, and on the rest of the photo they apply Gaussian blur, which usually gives deplorable results. In the case of Huawei P Smart 2021, however, the blur is authentic, not generated by the software, which gives natural and effective results. You can see them in the candle photo above. It is also worth mentioning that there is a decent 8-megapixel selfie webcam and video calls with aperture f/2.0.
How does this work in practice? Night mode captivates h2>
The parameters themselves are one thing, And the practice is the second. However, as already mentioned, optics are only part of the potential. Its supplementation is a pre -installed software on the device. It is not without reason that on the island with cameras there was the inscription "Ai Quad Camera". In the case of Huawei P Smart 2021, there is no fear that four lenses with good specifications are only technical performances, because there are still deep learning algorithms behind them. The mechanism of action is as follows - in the first place, specially trained software recognizes the object in the photo, e.g. a cat, plant or sky, and then launches one of the pre -installed camera settings and filters that emphasize key elements. In the case of heaven's photos, we can count on conquering the depth of blue, cars will have more intense and more shiny colors, etc.
The software itself has many modes that start automatically, or can be started at the user's request. These are: aperture regulation mode, portrait night mode, standard (here it is worth starting the AI function, which allows automatic and intelligent application of the aforementioned effects), film mode, professional mode in which each parameter can be adjusted manually, a mode that allows you to record in the slowdown pace or panoramic mode.
that's not all. The manufacturer also provided the availability of light painting (of course, it is about long exposure, which in itself has several subcategories, including a mode that allows you to capture the characteristic effect of blurring of the headlights of passing cars), HDR mode and several other, smaller ones. As you can see, the choice is huge and there are really grounds to say that the software is one of the pillars that makes Huawei P Smart 2021 with a clear conscience as a photo smartphone, and yet we are talking about a device costing PLN 699.< P> The most impressive, however, is the night mode, which is simply dazzling. It is somewhat a mode similar to HDR mode - the smartphone takes a series of photos of different white balance and saturation, and then combines these photographs into one, so that the dark places are clearly visible, and the bright could be brighter than in reality. The whole lasts only 2-3 seconds, and the effects are phenomenal. Let the photos speak for themselves:
At this price, the photos are amazing h2>
I admit that in the case of Huawei P Smart 2021 I expected compromises in terms of photos. Optical components are expensive and it is producers that usually try to save. Meanwhile, a device fell into my hands, which in some cases is not inferior to Huawei P30 Pro, which I am a satisfied owner, and which at the time of purchase cost a trifle 2.5-3 thousand. zloty. The P SMART 2021 model shows that today you can buy a device for a really reasonable price that embarrasses the device system of devices costing up to two or three times more.
