Huawei Experience: This is how the Mate 50 Pro changes aperture

Mobile photography and videography continue to evolve in terms of optics, sensors, image processing and sheer number of options, so there isn’t a single reference device to which anything else can be compared for too long. The image quality tester DxOMark for example, the set of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro was rewarded with 123 points, the camera system of the Mate 40 Pro with 135 points, and the Mate 50 Pro with 149 points, and although we do not count, we shared a large picture and video in our test to indicate that we can see the progress.

The Mate 50 Pro offers a 13-megapixel camera supported by a 3D depth sensor on the front (18 mm focal length, f/2.4 aperture, fixed focus), a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera on the back (13 mm, 120-degree angle of view, f/2, 2, PD-autofocus) and a 64-megapixel telephoto unit with a periscopic design (90 mm, f/3.5, PD-autofocus, optical image stabilization), which basically offers 3.5x magnification compared to the main camera, but a high-resolution quad-Bayer with its sensor and skillful pixel combining, it also zooms in at 7x without loss.

However, Huawei reserved the most special knowledge for the 50 megapixel main camera (24 mm, quad-Bayer RYYB sensor, PD autofocus, optical image stabilization): the aperture of the optics can be adjusted in ten steps. Let’s take a quick look at what an aperture or aperture is: in classic photography, it is a structure consisting of small, moving plates, by opening and closing which we can control the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is one of the holy trinity of hobby photography: in addition to the aperture value, the exposure can also be changed by adjusting the sensitivity and shutter speed, but only the aperture setting changes the properties of the optics.

The Mate 50 Pro is one of the few smartphones – and the only one on the market today – that physically adjusts the aperture like a serious camera, letting most of the light onto the Sony IMX766 sensor at an aperture of f/1.4. It is no coincidence that this aperture value is also chosen by the automatic system at night, in order to save the recordings at the lowest sensitivity. At the same time, this means less depth of field, or I could say: a narrower band of the subject remains in focus, and the background appears more blurred, which can also be useful when photographing close-ups or faces.

At f/4, the opposite of this can be observed: more details remain sharp in the foreground and the background is less blurred, so this position is ideal during the day, for example when shooting landscapes. The automatic mode of the Mate 50 Pro controls the aperture in four positions according to the subject and light conditions, and in manual mode for us f/1.4, f/1.6, f/1.8, f/2, f/2.2, f/ 2.5, f/2.8, f/3.2, f/3.5 and f/4 positions are available, optionally saved in JPG, high-resolution JPG or DNG RAW format. Of course, we can also control the white balance, focus, exposure correction, shutter speed, sensitivity and measurement mode. Three topics will soon follow, demonstrating the different lens properties of the variable aperture:

Main camera f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8 and f/4 aperture, 12.5 megapixel

The difference between a wider open (f/1.4) and a narrower aperture value (f/4) is clearly visible, and this can add an extra adjustment option to the usual options for a wide variety of subjects. By the way, Huawei’s new imaging system, Xmage, also made its debut with the phone, which controls the process of image creation, from the harmony of the optics and the sensor, to subject recognition, to the multi-element XD Fusion Pro image processing, so that the most ideal shot is always created.

Huawei has expertly coordinated software and hardware background blur: the portraits of the Mate 50 Pro are perhaps the best on the mobile market. It’s worth looking at how precisely Dani’s colleague’s clothes and hair are separated from the background, without any pixel errors or blurred edges. And the 50 megapixels come in handy to create a sufficiently sharp portrait of the face even when zoomed into the field of view, with adequate exposure and skin tones. Huawei has therefore brought a competitive camera phone to the market in terms of both image quality and hardware-software versatility, but from here on, the mobile phone owner has to find the right subject and fill the album with quality images.
