honor 8x ai camera

Camera is one of the key areas phone makers are working on. In recent years, AI (artificial intelligence) and multiple lenses have truly become the most talked-about features in mobile phones. Today, let us mostly look into AI camera.

What is AI camera in mobile?

Thinking, learning and solving problems like human are what AI machine used to do. In mobile, the AI camera has been trained to understand a thing or two about camera setting and image processing that’s easy for professional photographers. In other words, the AI camera can help amateur photographer chooses the most applicable exposure and color adjustments for the perfect shots.

AI camera means better algorithms and AI magic

Now, the one factor that is most likely to determine the quality of the photo you just took is the software and the artificial intelligence applied to it. As the mobile benefits from machine learning, the camera AI on mobile phones, at its most basic level, is used to quickly and automatically recognize what is in a scene. Meanwhile, it can automatically differentiate between foreground subjects and backgrounds. More than these, you can explore more with AI camera and expect to get smarter assistant in the future.

HONOR’s AI camera Features

In 2018, HONOR newer phones from the mid-range and higher are already equipped with AI camera based on AI chipset. As you may know, Kirin 710 is HONOR’s first mid-range AI chip corresponding to the first flagship AI chip Kirin 970. Powered by AI chipset, there are several magic shooting modes in HONOR’s camera application.

AI Mode: It can detect the subject in the camera frame (landscape, food, fireworks etc.) and accordingly adjust the settings for the best possible image.

Portrait Mode: AI can identify facial features and automatically enhance them for a superior portrait while the 3D Lighting options (sift, butterfly, split, stage, classic) can add positional lighting or spotlights to give an even more stand-out effect.

Aperture Mode: It tells AI camera how much light to let in when you click the shutter so as to decide which parts should be blurred. The blurred background effect is called bokeh by professionals.

Night Mode: For good low light photos, you need to stay reasonably still by using it to increases sharpness.

Apart from these preset modes, you may also need some composition lines based on the golden ratio.

The Rule of Thirds: You should position the most important elements in your scene along these lines, or at the points where they intersect.

The Composition Spiral Guideline: You should place a point of interest on the smallest part of the spiral, then the eye will naturally flow through the rest of the image. You can also flip or turn the spiral.
