Huawei has used AI to make advances in smartphone photography- Chief Camera Engineer
Huawei Chief #Camera Engineer Wei Luo gives the scoop on how #Huawei has used #AI to make advances in #smartphone photography on Huawei official twitter. He explains the vision of Huawei as regards smartphones photography during interview as under.
Is Mate pro the best smartphone in terms of photography?
Wei Luo replied, ” We didn’t all of sudden develop Phones with Camera. Actually our P9 had a best camera in its day. Of course, the Mate Pro, is pretty good in this aspect. We have significantly improved our wide angle photography, because we ordered a custom video sensor from partner and applied algorithm called AI-Raw to it. I think esthetics of smartphone is photography to record life as it really is.
Which smartphone do you think is the best?
He replied, “The One Cliche”. This answer is a bit.
How would you respond to the comments about how AI over-processes images?
“I think that is the details humans, can see aren’t the only details out there, details are determined by the sensors capability.”
Why did Huawei make the super-zoom function?
” Because, we have the slogan with our smartphone ” The World is yours”. We always want to see world that are far away and you can see things clearer , if you zoom in.”
Where will the lines be professional cameras and smartphones in the future?
” I think it will be increasingly vague. The goal of computational photography of the hardware, is go beyond the limitations. We are sprinting towards this goal.
Highly Recommended ( Further adding the capability of video capturing)
“I would like to recommend the 7680fps super-slow motion video Capture of the Mate 30, it can capture the details that you can’t see with your eyes such as butterflies and bees flapping their wings and even the moments of hummingbirds and bullets”.
Please don’t go away (explains)
“In low light settings can be really noisy. Currently its definitely limited by hardware. Think about it. When you divide one second into 7680 frames. The time of exposure for each frame is one 7,680th of a second. In other words, when sensor and system record at 1920 frames per second, so, all you have is one -1920th of a second, if it is not bright enough. We have raise the ISO. This creates extra noise. Of course we are coming up with various algorithms and components. We hope that in future, we can improve users experience. ”
