An inexpensive smartphone with good cameras is not surprising for a long time. An inexpensive smartphone with four good cameras intrigues even the most seasoned specialists. AND Huawei Mate 10 Lite just that.
But how to unleash the full potential of the cameras of this model? We have gathered useful tips about each of the camera’s operating modes. and if you are just learning to take pictures, they will be very useful for you. Let’s start with the main camera and gradually move on to the front camera. Go!
Main camera Huawei Mate 10 Lite
The main one consists of 16 megapixel and 2 megapixel modules with an aperture of F / 2.2. A little about the operation of the dual main module. The main camera, which takes photos, has a resolution of 16 megapixels. The second is present purely for determining the depth of field. Due to this, during shooting, you can turn on the wide aperture mode to blur the background. And also in the photos taken in this mode, you can postfocus the pictures already in the gallery.
Thus, the second camera performs auxiliary functions during shooting and is not directly involved in creating photos. For these purposes, a 2 megapixel module is enough.
You will use this mode most often, for obvious reasons. all the parameters, such as focus and white balance, are set by the program, and not by you. However, do not think that this is a limited mode. exclusive to it are some shooting modes available to you.
For example, a wide aperture that allows you to select a focus point after taking a picture in the gallery. A portrait mode with bokeh effect is also available. And live photos allow you to shoot short videos when shooting photos. for GIF animations, for example. All this is available in standard mode!
If you want to know all the nuances of photographing, then Huawei Mate 10 Lite will provide you with fine-tuning shooting parameters. It would seem that there is nothing for the beginner to do here. Until you understand that some of the fine-tuning adjusts to the frame in real time. Note the change in ISO and S.
Recommended settings for ISO and shutter speed will change right in the course of shooting during cropping, if you do not set them manually. this will help you learn how to set the settings correctly. Other options, including focus and white balance, are directly up to you.
Standard mode (video)
Also not the most interesting mode. at least on the surface. However, turning it on, we see that it supports the improvement of the face on the fly, and yes. this is the only mode that supports the improvement of the face on the fly.
So if you want to look prettier on the video (not sure if it will be necessary. you are already great), then do not forget where you can enable this feature.
Professional mode (video)
Personally, I was hoping that in this mode it would be possible to change settings, such as exposure, even during the shooting itself, but such a feature is available only in the flagships.
But if you do not want any parameter to change without your knowledge, you can block it by holding it until a yellow asterisk appears.

Yes, the same magical HDR that makes any picture better 3.14 times! Actually, no, of course, and you can miss it, as with any other tool. This mode takes, in fact, several pictures with different exposures (that is, it adjusts the brightness of the picture for several objects at once) and then combines the received frames.
HDR will only be useful in certain situations. when it is too dark or too light, for example. We also recommend that in addition to taking pictures with HDR the usual ones. in case the miracle mode misses.
Do not try to take pictures with your hands in this mode. any vibration, even from your heartbeat, will knock down the frame, smearing it to the state of makeup floated from the rain. Find a tripod of any quality, the cheapest one will do. The main thing is not to tremble during the shooting.
Bad example of shooting in night mode
Here, pay attention to the arrow in the upper left corner of the screen. It switches the shooting of vertical and horizontal panoramas, which may be useful to you. Also, if you want to understand how this business works, I advise you to create several panoramas of your own room.
After several unsuccessful attempts, you will understand what speed you need to maintain so that the picture does not get blurry.
Here the advice is the same as with night mode. you need a tripod, since the Mate 10 Lite will form an image from a bunch of consecutive photos. In case of any shivering, the quality will greatly decrease.
He is a timelapse. This is a video that is greatly accelerated. all of you have probably seen in advertising this format when you need to show the rush or the richness of life in the city. In this mode, a tripod is also desirable, but you can also remove it from your hand.
It is important to consider the location of the cameras. if you are shooting a collision of something, say, close, then you may not capture the moment of the collision. Also remember that the quality of shooting in this mode is much worse than the standard one, and for an ideal result you will need a lot of light.
Favorite mode of all Instagram. It is important to remember here that you can choose not only the type of effect, but also its saturation. just click on the three circles below the selection of the filter itself.
In fact, the Chinese version of Snapchat, already built into the firmware, and unique to some smartphones. A useful feature is that face enhancement works here too, so you will look not only funny, but also beautiful!
It is important to remember that this mode works through face recognition, which means that you need more or less good lighting.
This mode should not be underestimated, since it may well replace the creation of postcards. A great many presets are available to you, and in most of them you can edit the text, entering your own as you wish.
Do not forget also that the watermark can be dragged to any place on the screen by holding your finger on it.
Here you can add voice to your picture, up to 10 seconds of audio. Listen to this case will be in the gallery. There are no particular settings. although you can trim the recording by clicking on the icon in advance so as not to clog the broadcast for all 10 seconds.
Actually, a code scanner, including a QR. Not the most convenient thing. I personally recommend using it through swipe down on the main screen. Only the ability to take snapshots of codes is useful, without interrupting analysis.
This mode is automatic, and makes food shots richer, brighter and tastier. A great way to whet your appetite!
The front camera in Huawei Mate 10 Lite is also dual. 13 megapixels and 2 megapixels, aperture F / 2.0. In the front camera, the modes are repeated, and tips on them are similar to the main camera.
The main point that you should remember is that most of Huawei’s branded features work only through its own Gallery. For example, changing focus, or listening to audio for pictures. Perhaps at the time this article appeared, custom galleries received support for some of the functions, but now even monsters like F-Stop perceive photos with advanced features as the most common.
Now. the most basic. If you are a lover of selfies, then from the dual front camera Mate 10 Lite you will squeeze the maximum juice. Get ready for a very high-quality background blur effect at a level that is unattainable even for competitors’ flagships. The fact is that smartphones with one camera, even the most advanced ones, use software bokeh, which, to put it mildly, is imperfect. In contrast, the Mate 10 Lite has an additional 2 megapixel front module responsible for the “depth” of the image, providing background blurring an order of magnitude better.
Do not forget about the flash in front, which makes it possible to use additional tinting with a high color rendering index. All this bunch of software features allows you to transfer colors as naturally as possible, bringing the quality of images to the studio level. And this is just a selfie, do not forget!
It doesn’t matter whether you are an amateur photographer or an associate of a selfie culture, Huawei Mate 10 Lite You will have to come in handy. The main thing is to use its advantages wisely, and do not miss a single bright moment in your life!
