We have already talked about the Honor 90 smartphone in detail in our review. In this text, we will pay more attention to the smartphone camera and share our pictures from Kamchatka.
Let us remind you that the smartphone received a system of three sensors as the main camera. It includes a 200 MP main sensor with f/1.9 aperture, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 and macro photography support, as well as a 2 MP depth sensor and f/2.4. The latter is used for portrait photography.
The standard camera application has retained the arrangement of elements familiar to all users of the MagicOS shell. Above the shutter button, there is a horizontal switch for the main shooting modes:
- Aperture – for shooting with background blur. The level of blur is adjusted using the f button in the lower left corner of the viewfinder.
- Night—night mode.
- Portrait – portrait photography. In this mode, you can switch between 1x and 2x cameras. It is better to shoot portraits at 2x – this way, the facial proportions are the most natural.
- Photo – Standard Mode
- Video – The main camera allows you to shoot in 4K resolution at 30 frames per second.
- Multivideo – this mode allows you to record videos simultaneously on the main and front cameras.
Additional shooting modes are hidden in the More tab. Here:
- PRO is a mode with manual settings that allows you to adjust parameters such as ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and more.
- Slow Motion – As the name suggests, this mode is designed for slow-motion photography. The following options are available: speed 4x with 120 FPS and 8x with 240 FPS. You can switch between 1x and 2x lenses.
- HDR Photo – Improves the quality of the lightest and darkest areas of the photo. To shoot in this mode, it is recommended to fix the smartphone.
- HDR video – works similarly to the previous mode, but for video shooting.
- Time Lapse – Interval shooting for time lapses.
- Watermark – Adds a watermark to your photos. You can select the date, geolocation information, and various captions.
- Super macro – for taking close-up shots of small objects.
- HIGH-RES – Captures more detail with photos at a maximum resolution of 200 MP.
- Smart Video Focus – Records additional video in portrait mode with motion tracking.
- Story is a creative mode that allows you to add filters, transitions, frames, stickers and other effects to your videos.
- Documents – a special mode for scanning documents.
How to shoot Honor 90
In mid-September, I was able to visit Kamchatka, from where I brought back quite a lot of successful photographs of the Honor 90 that I would like to share.
Day 1: mountains, volcanoes, canyon and waterfall
We started getting acquainted with the local nature and mountain landscapes. This is the mountain river Paratunka.
Gorgeous mountain landscapes.
A short stop at a mountain cafe: drinks, food. Electricity from solar panels. There is satellite Internet – you can buy hourly access if your eye is twitching from a digital detox, but the cost is steep. Bank cards or SBP are accepted for payment. I prefer to travel around Russia without cash—there were no problems with this throughout my trip to Kamchatka, even in the mountains.
Volcano caldera: under the sand, there is snow and a frozen lake.
Hills of pumice – solidified lava.
A little more mountain scenery on the way to the canyon with a waterfall.
And here is the canyon itself with a waterfall inside. Greatness!
Day 2: Out to the ocean, killer whales, sea lions and bird colony
When viewed from large waters, Kamchatka is no less surprising than its mountain landscapes.
Three Brothers is a group of pillar-shaped rocks that are located at the entrance to Avacha Bay. They are an official natural monument, as well as a symbol of the bay and the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
The long-awaited killer whales.
Rocks and sea lions.
No one suffered from seasickness during the photography of the second day. You can download all pictures in their original resolution by following this link (Telegram).
