Moon Photography with Huawei P50

Huawei P50 Moon Photography Malaysia

I have been photographing the moon for as long as I can remember, and it has become even more enjoyable since the dawn of the telephoto lenses on smartphones.

When I received my smartphone, one of the first things I couldn't wait to do was explore some moon photography with the Huawei P50 smartphone.

Moon Photography with Huawei P50

I am still testing this new flagship unit from Huawei, and below are some test shots I did when I got my P50 at the end of May 2022. Again, I used the entry-level model, not the P50 Pro.

Also, two photos are shown, the first one taking the moon picture with 75 x zoom on the telephoto, and you can see the natural outcome of the image.

The following moon photo is the same, just that I did minor touch-ups on Photoshop to decrease the contrast, lighten it a little and sharpen it a little.

After some basic editing in Photoshop, the moon photo looks better.


I'm still exploring this function to understand why the AI behaves oddly and where it should compensate by lessening the glow around the moon.

It may be just the P50 that does not allow the full features and functions of moon photography or astrophotography. I've been an avid smartphone user for all my travels, and with standard flagship units, it is hard to determine how well they perform.

One day, I can test the Huawei P50 Pro for my travel photography versus just the standard units. And you can see from the images above that something is lacking in the pictures taken.

I also did a previous article for some night photography with the Huawei P50 in Kuching, Sarawak, just a few weeks back when I visited for the Rainforest World Music Festival 2022.

Let me see the next moon photo opportunity I get, and I will try it again. Meanwhile, has anyone explored taking moon photography with Huawei P50? If so, please share your experience.
