Huawei P10 Plus Camera : With The Leica Dual Camera, Monochrome Lens !
From the P9 series phone, Huawei choose to corperate with the Leica, in order to launch dual camera’s camera, which uses black and white color two camera algorithm, the effect superior to the tradictional single camera imaging. Huawei P10 persists the back design style of Mate 9, in the front side, it is the first to use the f / 1.9 large aperture Leica lens.
The camera design heritages the asymmetric style and with 12 million pixels + 20 million pixel camera combination, this combination not only ensure the 20 million high-pixel black and white camera to enhance the level of detail, but also with the enlarge’s 2 times optical zoom function.
The specific composition of the 20 million pixel Monochrome black and white camera +12 million pixel RGB color camera, which as same as P9 series, in the normal shooting, the two rear camera all involve in imaging, but in the uses of black and white mode (non-black and white filter) shooting, only the left side black and white camera work.
The color camera uses the tradictional RGBG Bayer array to record the color information in the picture. While another camera calls Monochrome that removed the CMOS separation filter, the amount of light is large several times than ordinary Bayer array CMOS. All the incident light are directly transmitted to the sensor and can be captured, it can effectively improve the pixel details, and black and white lens pixel is higher than the 20 million level color camera.
The “SUMMARIT” next to the lens which is the namerule for the Leica lens, Leica lens name is usually sorted by aperture values, so each lens with its own name. Such as Noctilut (f / 1.0), Summilux (f / 1.4) or Summarit (f / 2.5) in the large aperture series. Huawei P10 Plus camera is Leica classified Summarit series, follows by H which contains “Huawei special for” means. ASPH represents an aspherical lens, uses of non-spherical lens can change the direction of the light into the lens to make it as much as possible together, so that it can effectively reduce the aberration, ensure the imaging quality.
Compares with the P10’s f / 2.2 aperture, Huawei P10 Plus rear lens aperture is the larger f / 1.8.
