Huawei Mate 20 Pro Camera Tips and Tricks


Very first feature is to capture the wide world and it is one of the best features of Mate 20 Pro due to its ultra wide sensor now once you are in camera interface it’s a little bit tricky to enable it. You need to tap the “1x” button and you’ll see 5x zoom and then when you tap on it again you’ll reach to a point that it says point 6x zoom and that’s where the ultra wide board kicks in now as you all might know the wide-angle photos have those fisheye effects, so make sure to apply the lens distortion effect to make up for it.


The next tip is to capture crisp low-light images and if you follow the recent smartphone camera trends you must have seen that most of the phones have a dedicated night mode. The Mate 20 Pro also bundles and independent night mode called the night.

The best thing about the camera is that the night mode works across all the three lenses but before you start clicking you know to keep two things in mind.

First hold the camera as stable as possible because the camera takes multiple shots and even slight hand movement might result in bloody photos and secondly the Mate Pro captures great still photos, but if you have frames that are moving cars or buses the result might again blurred out.


The next tips the super slow motion and man this is the age of super slow motion videos. The Mate 20 Pro can capture slow motions on a looping 60fps similar to what we get on Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and S9, S9+.

The Mate 20 Pro gives you two different modes to shoots slow-motion videos, Auto and Manual. Now the automatic modes grab a video when it detects motion but in the manual mode, you’ll have specify the area where you want the video to slow down and then tap on the shutter button. While the time interval being tied you’d have to be very sure when the shooting such videos and again lighting is a key to great slow motion video so make sure that you are shooting in plenty of broad daylight and indoor results might not be good in such videos.


The next trick is to play with the portrait modes shooting mode and well, in portrait modes people are just not limited to bokeh in 2019 taking a leaf out of the iPhone Xs portrait mode. This phone comes with a number of shooting modes like stage lightening folding lines photo-booth and much more.

Now once you enable and take photos it replaces the background the stylish set of colors and effects enhancing the overall looks all you have to do is pick the right color mode for the right environment and you loved the photos that it’s giving up to you.


The next trick is about raw photos and that setting is available in the pro mode and really it would be a shame, if you don’t explore the pro mode in this camera studded phone. The pro mode lets you play with the camera settings like white balance, ISO and shutter speed and to add to it you can also store pictures in raw mode though the pictures in raw mode look flat and lack the punch they are more flexible to edit since they have more details that are normally absent in a JPEG image. To enable this mode navigate to pro settings> Resolution and toggle the raw resolution on.


The next step is about the monochrome mode, now unlike the predecessor the Mate 20 Pro doesn’t have a dedicated monochrome but it tries to make up for that with a dedicated monochrome mode and it just doesn’t end there. This mode comes with its own techniques such as throw mode portrait mode and even aperture all you need to do is go to more monochrome mode portrait and then start clicking the photos now I’m sure that you would love this feature and this is actually hidden.


The next feature is to enable motion pictures and thanks to this feature you can now store a short video along with the still image on your Mate 20 Pro.

In camera simple tap on the little circle on the cameras viewfinder all the motion pictures are denoted by tiny circle at the top right corner while you are viewing them in your gallery tap on it to view a little video for the moments leading to a photo.
