I'm used to carrying around a camera and normally would take my Canon 5D everywhere, but getting older is not fun, as carrying a bag with a heavy camera and a 6-year-olds beach toys in tow can take a toll on your back. So recently when we went away I decided I’m going to use my new mobile at the time the Huawei P20 Pro which has a Leica lens. I got to admit I purchased this phone for the Leica lens, its good with color, but monochrome this baby is amazing. I would normally take a snap and edit all in mobile, also as its a phone it's pretty discrete so ideal for taking photos of people without startling them.
The images came out better than I thought and I am impressed by this little beast of a phone, it is a fixed lens which can be the downside for some people but I don’t mind and I really don’t want to be carrying a lot of gear at my age.
So to conclude it’s a great little compact camera great for shooting on the go and the quality isn’t half bad too, will it replace my Canon? No, but it’s great to have the option to go super light when your out and about. Check out the photos taken on the day.
