The end of the year is approaching, and every company’s flagship mobile launch plans should be temporarily over. When it comes to the best camera hardware in the mobile circle, Huawei P50 Pro and Apple iPhone 13 Pro should have names. As a “double champion” in the field of mobile imaging, Huawei has introduced a new generation of imaging systems with computing optics and primary color engines as the core of the P50 Pro. Apple brings a larger sensor to the iPhone 13 Pro complimented by Apple’s consistent strong optimization. Both parties’ investment in photography has taken the user’s photography experience to a whole new level.
But having said that, consumers often only buy one when buying a new machine. If you start from the performance of mobile photography, which of the two phones, Huawei P50 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro, is the best? Then, the author will compare the two mobile phones horizontally through the actual configuration and testing phase. The duo’s confrontation begins immediately.
01 / “Equipment” view: Image Black technology vs. ancient configuration polishing
The inherent image power of the Huawei P50 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro should not be underestimated. The first is Huawei P50 Pro, equipped with XD Fusion Pro primary color engine, XD Optics computational optics technology, XD Fusion Pro ultra-filter system, and other innovative “black technology” images, and also proposed a “super main camera module + super zoom dual image module concept” .
Taking the XD Fusion Pro basic color engine as an example, it can use a new generation of environmental spectrum acquisition system to calibrate the color to 5 times smoothness, effectively restore true color, and expand the dynamic range that the image unit can capture, so that the testing stage is filled with more details. Combined with the XD Fusion Pro primary color engine and the XD Fusion Pro super filter system, image detail and color performance can be improved, helping consumers clearly record the thousands of worlds before them.
In contrast, Apple’s upgrade to the iPhone 13 Pro series this year is more like “checking the shortcomings” of the old imaging system, such as adding macro photos/videos, replacing larger sensors, night mode lens and so on. In addition, Apple has also added some experience and video-biased improvements to the new device, such as shooting style and movie mode. The former makes Apple’s presets more convenient, while the latter allows for video depth adjustment and seamless switching of the main device. the focus. becomes possible.
From the point of view of image composition upgrades for the two mobile phones, Huawei P50 Pro tends more to go deeper into the existing image hardware, to increase the influence of fundamental factors such as light and color on the final photography, while Apple is more like an old one. Regular upgrade of the imaging system. At the end of the Show Equipment session, the next step is to move on to the live shoot session with experience and comparison as the main content.
02 / Show real shots: the power of the image, visible day and night
In the real shooting session, the author will use Huawei P50 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro to capture real photos and collect test materials based on the three common motion picture scenes based on large wide-angle / ultra-wide-angle scene recording, telephoto zoom experience, and night scene viewing. As follows:
Zoom (Ultra Wide Angle – Wide Angle – 3.5X / 3X – 10x / 15X):
It can be seen from the test group that the Huawei P50 Pro can shoot a large-scale urban scene with high resolution and rich color performance in outdoor scenes with clear weather. Even in the ultra-wide angle mode, many details of the old buildings are still clearly visible. At the same time, it should be noted that the overall tone of the test group is relatively consistent, the overall color performance is more attractive, the architectural details in the dark part are still preserved, and the dynamic range is wider.
In addition, Huawei P50 Pro has a better display effect on the blue sky.The blue sky in the test is particularly transparent, and the color reproduction is accurate and not too bright, which is just right.
In contrast, the overall test stage of the iPhone 13 Pro is inferior to the Huawei P50 Pro in terms of brightness, color details, display of dark details, and dynamic range. The overall test stage is darker and the color is relatively duller. At the same time, the dark parts of the roof of the building are not detailed. Not fully displayed. At the same time, the details and clarity of the test phase 15 times are not as good as the Huawei P50 Pro.
Trial comparison 15 times (same multi scene, same scene)
Given that the maximum zoom factor of the Apple iPhone 13 Pro is only 10x, the author also set the Huawei P50 Pro to 15x zoom. The two mobile phones compare the same subject in real shots, as follows:
It is clear that the Huawei P50 Pro test stage is 10x better than the iPhone 13 Pro in terms of overall brightness performance, color performance, sharpness, brightness and highlights.At the same time, the Huawei P50 Pro test stage is clearly better than the iPhone 13 Pro It is transparent, and the red roof details of the subject The golden five-pointed star is also present. At the same time, Huawei P50 Pro also supports digital zoom up to 100X.
In the case of 100X zoom, the watch details of the target are still preserved to the maximum, the digital information of the scale on the watch can be seen clearly, and details such as light and shadow are fully restored.
In the night scene test, the white balance characteristics of the Huawei P50 Pro and Apple iPhone 13 Pro were distinguished: the former is cooler and the latter is warmer. On the whole, the iPhone 13 Pro’s wide-angle main camera test is quite dark, bright and dark details are seriously missing, Apple’s “ghosting” issue is still unresolved, and the overall look and feel is slightly worse. At the same time, both work similarly in terms of noise control, and the image clarity is good.
Compared to iPhone 13 Pro, Huawei P50 Pro has better performance in bright and dark details. This can be seen from the brighter logo on the building on the left and the text below in the testing phase. Huawei P50 Pro can restore the details of the interior of the building as much as possible when viewing the landscape of the area. Meanwhile, the logo area outside the building is still very visible. In contrast, iPhone 13 Pro still lacks in vignetting suppression, all the details of the logo area, interior details of the building, etc. are lost.
In the 2X test stage, we can clearly see that the Huawei P50 Pro’s image brightness is clearly better than that of the Apple iPhone 13 Pro: the former can achieve better brightness performance while maintaining a relatively stable discrimination suppression effect, and the latter is in the case of vignetting prevention. It has an impressive performance, but it also lost a lot of dark details, such as the building details in the dark upper right corner of the screen. In addition, in terms of color performance, the Huawei P50 Pro really returned the color of the exterior elements of the building in the landscape at that time, compared to the iPhone 13 Pro.
Ultra Wide Angle:
In the ultra-wide-angle testing stage, the image brightness performance of Huawei P50 Pro is still better than that of iPhone 13 Pro under the same environmental conditions, which also means that Huawei P50 Pro can capture more dark details, and the image finally presented to the user is also better.
When zoomed in, the iPhone 13 Pro smudge phenomenon is more serious. For example, the trees on the side of the road in the distance and the pink exterior of the building have different degrees of detail loss. In contrast, the Huawei P50 Pro is a little better.
In terms of vignetting suppression, the Huawei P50 Pro is also slightly better than the iPhone 13 Pro. This can be seen by comparing the four-character logo of “Zhongyu Building” in the testing phase and the bright roadside billboard. It is ambiguous in the testing phase of the Huawei P50 Pro. The four characters “Zhongyu Building” can be distinguished. In the testing phase of the Apple iPhone 13 Pro, the structure of these four characters is often covered with their own bright light, which leads to the loss of the details of the text structure. In addition, the details of the building walls on the left and right sides of the image show that the Huawei P50 Pro is clearly better than the iPhone 13 Pro.
From the composition of the above image to the comparison of real shots, you can clearly feel the powerful image power of the Huawei P50 Pro. It can accurately restore environmental colors during the day or night. At the same time, it has a wider zoom range and more than the iPhone 13 Pro. Clear zoom performance, while still providing a wider dynamic range in a darker environment, light and dark details in place. The overall performance of the image is satisfactory. Combined with rich focal length support and perfect anti-shake strategy, the Huawei P50 Pro’s photo-creating capabilities are still worth exploring for photo enthusiasts. Compared to waiting for iPhone 13 Pro, choosing Huawei P50 Pro can bring more photo possibilities. In addition, the Hongmeng system has also added a new experience to the Huawei P50 photo series. The introduction of the multi-camera mode of the Huawei P50 Pro allows the lenses of other Huawei devices to be remotely controlled, and it can easily achieve multiple shooting angles with just one device.[Thisarticleisgranted”[تممنحهذهالمقالة” Reproduced with permission. 】
