Hi,

To my surprise, my brand new P30 Pro camera's app doesn't come with 16:9 aspect ratio resolution which is a bummer...
My old Mate 10 Pro had it and I can't see myself watching my pictures with those 2 white squares on the left and right of my pictures...

Let me link you an official thread about this issue with the mate 20: https://uk.community.huawei.com/mate...wei-phone-1520

Do you have any clue when it could get added back ? Or touch a word to Huawei's team ? It doesn't look like an hard task to add it back tbh...

+ Fullscreen mode which takes all the screen lowers our pictures to 6mpx..It's a big loss !

Best regards

Hi,

Yeah as you can see we can only set "FULL-SCREEN" which give us 6 Mpx pics...


And that's how it looked in the mate 10 pro:


As you can see we had way more option of high resolution using 16:9 aspect ratio and enjoying 9Mpx...

Cheers

Hi Dizecrypt!

It's the same with both P20 and Mate 20 ...
All Huawei phones comes with a bad built-in camera app.
No 16:9 photo ratio and low megapixels ☹️

As far as I'm aware, the camera sensors on all smartphones are made to capture a 4:3 ratio image. When the camera app offers a 16:9 ratio, it's just cropping the image so you're actually losing information. I agree it would be nice if the option was there, but actually the P30 & Pro are ensuring you're getting the best image from your camera.

You can always crop it to 16:9 afterwards, there's no loss in quality as this is what 16:9 mode does anyway.

A high megapixel count doesn't guarantee a great image, the P30 is using a 40mp sensor and rendering it as a 10mp image which still gives you a detailed image. You can choose 40mp in the settings, but try it - personally I found the image was no better than the "10mp" version. Also you can capture in RAW for use in photo editing software.

I find quite disappointing that there is no 16:9 ratio option in the official camera app. Photos look less gorgeous on my PC monitor or TV screen. I hope that it will be implemented in the next updates.
code:
Hello
I just bought a P30Pro for this quality photo and am really disappointed not to have the 16:9 resolution because the sensor system allows it with crops.

It's a shame because it's important to have this ratio to fully explode on HD TV or 4k ...

I read a hawei post indicating a possible update ...

@ HAWEI: when will this update be available?

HAWEI ???? Some answers. Thank you
Yes, we definetely need this option.

Come one Huawei, it's not that hard!
