I am, or was a proud owner of a Huawei P30 pro, i purchased this device with the intent to use it for on-the-go photography and filmmaking.
I am loving the in-built camera app when taking photos and the results I am getting are quite beautiful. Although, the lack of manual controls within the video mode is rather displeasing. To solve this issue I have purcahsed the FilmicPro app under the impression that this would provide me with all the settings i need. HOWEVER, it turns out that Huawei are blocking apps from accessing the Camera2.API (the controller for all settings such as picture style, resolution and bitrate (VERY important).
I have read on this forum that there will be an update coming to the camera within the month that will bring improvements. Will this update be granting third party apps to the camera2.api? I am praying that it will because I have purchased this phone with the intent of creating beautiful videos, but the footage I am achieving is lower quality than my 2014 SAMSUNG Note 4.
Considering this device was marketed as a 'Revolutionary videography experience' I feel somewhat cheated by Huawei over this, I am locked into a three year contract with this device and already feel a large amount of regret. Perhaps you can explain why the C2.API is so locked down? And when this will be resolved.
Many thanks for your time
