The Huawei Mate40 Pro became my main smartphone last month and not only became my favorite phone to use, I think it’s one of the best smartphones released in 2020. Like any other main phones I’ve had for years, the Mate40 Pro was used for everything: phone calls, messaging and e-mails as modes of communication, and watching streaming videos, listening to music, and playing mobile games on the entertainment side. Of course, the cameras are also an important factor for me but for content creation, I usually rely on my mirrorless camera to take photos and videos for my blog.
Knowing the Huawei Mate40 Pro’s cameras’ capabilities, I thought it would be a waste if I don’t use it for creating content for my blog. So for a few days, I ditched my mirrorless camera and solely rely on my Huawei Mate40 Pro, not only as my personal assistant but as a content creation partner!
It wouldn’t be a Huawei phone without an outstanding photography experience, and the Mate40 Pro delivers on stills as well as it does on video. The Super Sensing Wide Camera on the rear houses a 1/1.28-inch sensor for capturing unprecedented detail on every shot. I used the Mate 40 Pro to take photos of the products outdoors and it was able to capture all the details! The quality of the photos are somehow comparable with the shots I’ve taken before with my mirrorless camera.
I love taking landscape photos since I was a kid and when I tried smartphones with wide-angle lens, most of the time they come out distorted. Thanks to the Mate40 Pro’s Ultra-Wide Cine Camera’s photo mode, it can fit more into frame than most other smartphone cameras. This makes it perfect for capturing landscape images, thanks to the camera’s algorithms that minimize distortion even at the image’s outermost edges.
Zooming in on intricate details is even more impressive with the Mate40 Pro, courtesy of the Periscope Telephoto Camera that supports 10x hybrid zoom and up to 50x digital zoom. This long-distance photography capability makes for interesting shots especially in wide-open spaces – shooting in an art gallery or exhibit, for example, lets users capture the architecture housing the works of art while being able to zoom in on individual pieces without loss of quality. Of course, all of this camera wizardry is co-engineered with photography powerhouse Leica, ensuring every frame of video or photo exudes lifelike brilliance and vivid imagery.
Video is the crowning achievement of the Mate40 Pro, taking a “Leap Further Ahead” with its revamped and upgraded Ultra Vision Cine Camera system. Comprised of two Cine Camera lenses at 13MP and 20MP (front and rear-facing, respectively), users have access to real-time 4K HDR video capture, providing proper exposure values and well-controlled contrast even in harsh lighting situations.
Combined with the built-in AI Stabilization solution, handheld filming on the Mate40 Pro’s Ultra Vision Cine Cameras offer results on par with gimbal-mounted professional video cameras. Because the selfie camera is a 4K Cine Camera unit itself, Mate40 Pro users can explore many creative ways to vlog, especially with features like Dual-view, Ultra-Wide selfie, and Slow Motion Mode. In fact, there’s no need to fuss with gimbals, lighting gear, shotgun mics and the like – thanks to vlogging-dedicated options like
Story Mode, AI Tracking Shot and Audio Focus/Zoom, the only equipment needed for a shoot is the Huawei Mate40 Pro.
I want to do more VLOGS this year and I think the Huawei Mate40 Pro is the perfect phone to make that happen. the sample videos I recorded were indeed stable and audio was clear even without attaching a microphone. With the video clips I took, I am convinced I can already work with the Huawei Mate40 Pro for creating content for blog and social media accounts. And because I am already invested in the Huawei ecosystem involving the Huawei MatePad Pro, Huawei MateBook 13, Huawei FreeBuds Pro and Huawei Watch GT 2e, working on my content is easy and seamless.
