any damn phone can do even 1000x zoom if you bloody crop(Which the phones already do)...it's a damn gimmick. rushing these pointless gimmicks into phones is nothing but marketing hype.
Anonymous, 08 May 2020That's the AI mode which uses existing images of the moon to understand and fill in pixels gap... more" fill in pixels gaps due to the extreme zoom" is not AI.
It's cheating and deception. If you turn off AI (moon mode), then the real horrible photo of the moon as captured straight from the phone camera is the result.
The P30 Pro's AI is not only doing sharpness, saturation and noise reduction adjustments. The AI software is also manually replacing portions of the real captured moon image with clearer, sharper, more correct versions based from its moon database on what those details should look like when taken with a more capable camera.
Camera tests from the P30 Pro show that AI (Moon mode) adds moon details that the camera thinks should be there and removes 'wrong' moon details to the raw moon snapshot of the P30 Pro that shouldn't be there:

Anonymous, 08 May 2020Useless no. There are phones with 5x and 10x optical zoom today so they are useful for those ... moreits a 6x zoom really. 60x is useless because too unstable and also quality will be shi t.
6x zoom is great. 10x is alright if it was optical. above, probably doesnt make sense because not stable.

There are phones with 5x and 10x optical zoom today so they are useful for those people that want optimal images from far objects. Those with 5x and 10x ones are useful and you can take photos from far object without lose quality. Macro cameras and depth sensors are the ones useless. Even ultrawide ones are often useless too, about all at night.
This might be the most useless feature I've seen on a phone. Who in their right mind needs a 60x zoom. And it is a gimmick that is 3x and the rest is digital,except like 30x which may be hybrid. I hope they don't charge extra just for this gimmick.
I guess we need to test the feature by our self, is it right GSMarena team ? I guess so
Anonymous, 08 May 2020Zoom on mobile phones are pretty much useless, especially zooms at 60x.An optical zoom is really useful....If you like to take pictures.
[deleted post]Neither. Open your eyes and mind. Read the original article on the P30 Pro's moon fakery here (enablibg Google translate if you want it in English) :

Anyway, if you have a P30 Pro, download a high resolution moon photo from Google photo search. Edit/Blur the jpeg image so that no details are discernable. Print ithe blurred image in high quality photo paper. Using your P30 Pro, take a shot of the blurred moon printout using the P30's 'moon' mode. Voila! you'll get a vastly better photo complete with details that were never present in the photo print out!
You can also intentionally add foreign details, flip portions of the jpeg moon file, distort it then finally blurring the entire image and then printing it. Again, take a photo of the print out using the P30 Pro's moon mode and voila! Moon details restored that DO NOT contain the revisions you originally added before blurring the jpeg file.
Another test is not blurring the jpeg file. Just add an extra crater or another moon like detail. Print out edited jpeg file without blurring and take a shot using P30 Pro's moon mode. Voila! The details you added like the extra crater is gone!
If that isn't FAKERY, I don't know what is.
Anonymous, 08 May 2020Yes, exactly as I thought: overlaying a ready made image over the real garbage photo captured ... moreNo this controversy wasn't actually proven. Someone claimed it was fake imagery but many people came out with videos to test this but the phone captures a real moon shot. This guy even compared it to his dedicated camera photo and it's spot on real (even though the quality is much worse than what would come out of a real DSLR/mirror less camera)
The phone actually only has a 3x optical zoom lens which goes up to 30x with digital zoom. They only say it's 60x because they count it from ultrawide lens.
Wezz, 08 May 2020"Starry mode", "night mode", "food mode"... It's no longer take photo but live photoshop. Image stacking isn't Photoshop
Raezeken, 08 May 2020It's is true bro? I need more reference to debunk this photoAlready provided you 3. You can go far away from the city where there is no light pollution and watch the Milky Way Galaxy with your naked eyes in a clear night sky. IT IS ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE NEAR the bluish photo taken by this camera. Besides, most phone owners live in cities with plenty of loght pollution. How can one possibly take a decent photo of the Milky Way galaxy, even with a high end dSLR and some expensive specialty lens. The city's light pollution kills it!
