During Kenzo’s last fashion parade, photographers were jostling to get the best shots of the models that were sashaying across the catwalk. They were all using professional photographic equipment. Others, in the public, took snaps with their smartphone.
Until fairly recently there was a world of difference between images taken with a proper camera and those taken with a smartphone. The latter were often inaccurate in color, unsharp and then had to be pimped up with Instagram.
At Huawei they’ve made their latest top model “catwalk worthy”. Indeed, this model is fit for both on and off the catwalk. It’s as much an item to be admired as to be used.
Changzhu Li, VP Handsets Strategy at Huawei claims that with the P9 they are reinventing smartphone photography. They’re working with renowned photography brand Leica, which can look back on as much as 102 years of expertise.
This has enabled them to develop a camera with two lenses on the rear of the P9, allowing more light to be captured and the camera’s depth of perspective to be optimized. This results in sharper pictures, fast laser focus, true colors and excellent noise suppression in the images.
The smartphone is equipped with an 8 MP front camera, too, for great selfies should you want to take a pic of yourself beside the models on the catwalk.
