“The Honor 8 Pro’s dual camera can capture well-detailed black and white images”
Honor recently added the 8 Pro in its portfolio and as the name suggests, it’s placed above the popular Honor 8 in the hierarchy. The Honor 8 Pro also comes toting a dual-camera module at the back as the Honor 8, but with added features, considering it’s sporting the company’s fourth generation of the twin shooters. But if you are wondering what exactly the Honor 8 Pro’s camera(s) bring to the table, then you’re at the right place. Without furthr ado, let’s talk about the imaging capabilities of the smartphone, followed by its camera samples.
Before delving in the nitty-gritty of the imaging prowess of the device, let’s give you a lowdown of the handset. Even with a beefy 4,000mAh battery, the handset is pretty slim at 6.9mm and comes with a premium all-metal garb. The front panel is dominated by a massive 5.7-inch display, which offers a crisp resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. At its heart resides a HiSilicon Kirin 960, which is an octa-core 2.4-GHz SoC mated to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. You can also expand it further up to 256 GB via a microSD card.
Coming to the USP of the Honor 8 Pro, the phablet sports dual 12MP snappers at the back, which sit flush with the body. It also comes with fast autofocusing capabilities, thanks to the laser autofocus. For shooting in low-light conditions, it gets help from a dual-LED flash.
In terms of the camera interface, Honor has packed it to the brim with tons of useful features. As soon as you fire up the app, the main screen bears the options for toggling flash, wide aperture for Bokeh effect, beauty mode, gallery preview, shutter button and a video mode. Swipe towards the left and you get access to advanced modes like pro photo, monochrome, 3D creator, light painting, time-lapse, slow-mo and document scan, to name a few. Needless to say, the Honor 8 Pro comes packed with a plenty to satiate the needs of shutterbugs.
The very first option in the advanced menu is the Pro photo, which gives one fine grain control over aspects like ISO, shutter speed, White Balance and exposure. Moving on, the monochrome mode is where the dual camera comes to their fore, as the Honor 8 Pro’s secondary camera features a dedicated monochrome sensor, which captures sharp black and white pictures. Another interesting functionality is 3D Creator mode, which lets users create a 3D caricature of a person. This is a great feature for all those who love creating GIFs/videos. The device also boasts features like Light Painting, Time-lapse and Slow-mo, which are usually available in DSLRs. Light painting mode is basically long-exposure photography, which can be used to click pictures with words or shapes painted using a moving light. There are also live filters, which can be applied while clicking the pictures. Last but not the least, Document scan mode is pretty useful for capturing the photo of a page, as it lets the user digitise physical documents with ease.
Of course, we can go on and on about the camera capabilities of the Honor 8 Pro, or show you what all it can do. So without further delay, take a look at its camera samples.
Priced at Rs 29,999, the Honor Pro is available exclusively via Amazon.
