Last month, we were vastly impressed by the class-leading photography capability of Huawei’s latest P50 Pro (Review) flagship which showcased all the company’s latest advancements in the imaging field.
Thanks to Huawei Singapore, we get to learn more about the in-depth details regarding the science and technology behind the new imaging system of the Huawei P50 Pro during a webinar event led by Huawei’s Camera solution representative, Pan Chaoyue.
While many aspects of the camera’s software and hardware were talked about during the sharing session, but there are certain features which play a significant role in shaping it’s next-generation’s photography excellence.
Huawei XD Optics
One of the key highlight of the Huawei P50 Pro’s imaging system is the introduction of it’s in-house computational photography technique known as Huawei XD Optics that helps to solve lens aberration which would otherwise lead to a deterioration in image quality (reduction in details and clarity).
This involves the usage of an image signal restoration system which holds an important role in the correction of light errors and restoration of details, resulting in richer images. According to Huawei, XD Optics alone is able to improve as much as 25% image signal.
Huawei XD Fusion Pro
Besides XD Optics, Huawei also integrate the P50 Pro’s Dual-Matrix Camera system with the brand new XD Fusion Pro Image Engine that incorporates a Super Color Filter System, True-Chroma Image Engine and Super HDR technology.
These features work in tandem to improve the details, colors and dynamic range of the image, with the True-Chroma Image Engine delivering the highest possible colour accuracy, creating images that reflect what is seen by the human eye.
This can be attributed to the use of a 10-channel multi-spectrum sensor in the ambient light sensing system which improves the camera system’s ability to detect ambient light and average colour hue accuracy by 50 percent and 20 percent respectively. That’s one of the main reason why photos taken by the P50 Pro always appear vibrant and realistic.
Moreover, the new Super Colour Filter System, along with the True-Chroma Camera (Colour) and True-Chroma Camera (Monochrome) helps to improve the main camera’s light intake by 103 percent for better image clarity.
Huawei also claimed that the adoption of the new Super HDR technology allows the camera to capture 28 percent more of the dynamic range for better backlit performance, while light and shadows are optimised, creating richer textures and more pronounced layers.
The combination of XD Optics on the hardware level and XD Fusion on the software level enables the P50 Pro’s Dual-Matrix Camera system to offer exceptional photography capabilities which allow even amateur photographer to snap flattering photos with ease.
