Huawei has recently invited me to their Huawei P20 launch event here in New Zealand and on the same day, they have both the launch event and also a public and free event “Huawei P20 Fed Street Festival” both at Skycity here in Auckland.
As usual, when I attend a product launch event, I would want to take some photos and this time I also want to take some videos. Originally I was planning to take one of my Nikon full frame DSLR to capture some photos and my Panasonic G85 (or a G9 that I have on loan at the moment) for videos. You just really can’t go wrong with that combo. But as I actually already received a Huawei P20 Pro few days ago (yes I’m working on the full review), I thought, what about if I leave all those cameras at home and just take the P20 Pro and use it to shoot both photos and videos.
I mean I’ll just rely on a smartphone to take photos/videos at a dark indoor venue and then I’ll shoot a night outdoor event and weather forecast of pouring rain and a stage with high contrast, constantly changing stage lighting.
What possibly could go wrong?
I’ll not talk about the feature and photo/video quality in this video, I will save them for my proper review. But I would say I am very surprised by how well the camera handle some of the low light shot, the high contrast and rapidly changing stage lighting scene and it easily survived a night of rain pouring down. In the mean time, check out the video and photos I took using the Huawei P20 Pro on that day and tell me what you think about the photo and video from the P20 Pro.
