Technology is a disrupter. It changes equations without recourse to the effects on the original order. Could you have imagined a portable photo studio let alone one you can carry in your pocket? Back in the days, as interesting as photography was, many people missed the opportunity of making it a career. They couldn’t afford the equipment required to put up a studio. The large printers, heavy long lenses, gigantic cameras, hard to carry camera stands and fixed lighting points with large umbrellas covering them. Not only were they costly but they also needed a large space. But fast forward to 2019, technology has shattered all myths. Device makers like Huawei, full of crazy ideas, are ruling the world. Otherwise what would one say about its latest Y9 Artificial Intelligence, AI camera smartphone? It’s just a photo studio in the pocket
The magic wand in this smartphone is its ability to create beauty in every shot through its four cameras. Dual front (16 MP + 2 MP) and rear (13 MP + 2 MP) cameras have a keen eye for vivid detail. The camera can intelligently recongise scenes and is trained to see more than 500 scene types by creating 22 category labels to provide real-time optimisation. These, make pictures always look their best.
