Moon Photography with Huawei P50

Huawei P50 Moon Photography Malaysia

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

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.

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

Also, I want to disclose below that there are two photos 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.

Well, 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.

Perhaps it is 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.

Maybe one day, I will have the opportunity to test the Huawei P50 Pro for my travel photography versus just the standard units. And I am pretty sure 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 once more. Meanwhile, has anyone explored taking moon photography with Huawei P50? If so, please share your experience.
