Huawei Mate 9 – Optical/Hybrid Zoom Camera Samples

The Huawei Mate 9 is promoted having a hybrid zoom that is as good as an optical zoom. With this setup, you can go in point 1 increases of zoom from zero up to 6 x zoom. The next software update should make the zoom 10 times.

Anyway below are 3 shots.

First up, no zoom, just a normal shot taken in auto.


Next 2 x zoom, focusing on the church clock.


Up to 2 x zoom the shots are very good.


Finally the above shot is 6 x zoom.

It is worth noting these were all handheld and at dusk when the lighting was fading.

And now another sample.


And with 2 x zoom.


Incredible clarity at 2 x zoom.
