Back to what has just been sprung on us. P9, from Huawei’s enviable P-series lineage which had picked up three EISA awards on trot, heroes the non-bump phone-camera like no other. P. Sanjeev, VP Sales, Huawei mentioned that this model collected another EISA just two days back in London. Not for nothing. Collaborating with Leica Camera AG – manufacturers of cameras and sport optics products; leaders in imaging technology for more than 100 years, brings together the best-in-class hardware and software, from optical lenses, to sensors, to image processing algorithms, empowering users to capture the highest-quality images. Harnessing their expertise in dual-lens camera comprising 6 layers – thus effectively 12 pieces of lens ushers in a new paradigm in smart-phone photography – make it professional smart-phone photography.

Vision – Pocket DSLR


Two 12MP rear cameras – one dedicated to RGB sensor, the other, a monochrome sensor which acquires picture details – in tandem create images of superior detail, depth and color by capturing more light thus have excellent no-grain low-light performance – an ingenious concept-level idea that delivers. There is an 8MP front-facing camera which has an f/2.4 aperture and these lenses support phase detect AF (PDAF), having an f/2.2 maximum aperture. They come with a dual tone flash with 1.25 micron pixel size on the sensors.

Boman Irani – most-time actor-sometime photographer, Darren Centofanti, pro-clicker for at least 25 years and Sushmita Sen, full-time good-looker were brought in to speak, educate and pose respectively about/ with the device.

Darren demoed how one can utilize Pro modes by customizing ISO, shutter speed, exposure, auto focus and White Balance and choose between three film modes: Standard, Vivid and Smooth. “In built vivid mode makes your pic pop as if photo-shopped a bit”, said Darren. Monochrome mode may evoke nostalgia with powerful and evocative black and white images that only a true monochrome camera can.

Expansion on Vision

It also has a video camera capable of shooting in Full HD at 60fps to the accompaniment of different modes such as monochrome, HDR, Beauty video, panorama and such. Then there’s wide-aperture to experiment with innovative visual effects to create unique images and content. If that’s not enough this camera  lets you control aperture in in-camera post to create bokeh and other depth-of-field effects, while keeping the main object in sharp focus.header-background
