Updated on 19 May 2019 – Click here to see amazing photos of Milky Way, Eta Aquarid meteor, sunrise and sunset taken at Mount Bromo in May 2019 with Huawei P30 Pro!
My Huawei P30 Pro arrived on 6 Apr 2019 at 4.30pm SGT and I know the night sky in Mersing will be amazing for me to try out this low-light beast. I read a lot of good reviews on P30 Pro but I was still skeptical. So I booked a room at my regular resort on the same day and drove 3 hours there.
I arrived at midnight and waited patiently for 2.5 hours before I whipped out my P30 Pro and took a snapshot of my resort. Lo and behold! The Milky Way was visible!
To be honest, I didn’t expect it to be so easy! All I did was to point and shoot HANDHELD in Photo mode (Master AI enabled automatically) and let P30 Pro performed its magic. Many of my friends asked me what did I do to the image and some even thought I’ve brightened the image but hell no! I did nothing. Nothing at all. Here’s more images of my attempts, handheld and unedited.
I have also decided to try shooting star trails with it and I’m happy with the result. I had to stop the shoot after around 32mins because I saw a car turning in.
I’ve also tried shooting the Milky Way in Night Mode but the image quality is not as good as those taken in Photo mode. Overall, I find the astrophotography images from P30 Pro acceptable but I would still prefer to use a DSLR for serious shoot. But then again, the best camera is the one you have with you. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
