Huawei P60 Pro camera captures Venus and Moon conjunction
Huawei P60 Pro is packed with an ultra-lighting XMAGE camera system that could capture anything including the Venus and Moon.
On March 24, Venus and Moon aligned all together including the earth showcasing this natural phenomenon. Since the Moon is closer to Earth than Venus, when the three line up in a straight line, the moon blocks away Venus.
This alignment created a view of the Moon’s beautifully slim crescent hanging above the blazing-bright Venus. This scene is adored by countless people around the world. Meanwhile, Huawei P60 Pro celebrated the event by capturing Venus and Moon in conjunction.
Looking at the photo quality, the lunar occultation of Venus is very clear. Especially, venus is shining its gold aura in the brightest. In a second picture, Huawei P60 Pro shows its capability of focusing on all subjects in the scene.
For example, the second image focuses on the entire scene including the sky, clouds, and the building on the bottom left. All of these combined with the moon and venus, are captured in the same frame. This is an amazing capability, as the phone evenly matches the quality and details of all subjects.
