[* black] With the P30phone now open before usfully open, we head straight for the cameras. First one out is the new [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periscope|periscope style|new_window=truehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periscope|periscope-style|new_window=true] camera module that is said to make up to 50x zoom possible.
[* icon_note] Instead of resorting to a [https://www.amazon.com/Cell-Phone-Camera-Lens-Photography/dp/B07L86SX4L/|massive camera bump|new_window=true] forbump|new_window=true], this module, the arraymodule is rotated 90°90° from the aperture, laying flat intoin the phone with a prism refracting the light intoonto the lenssensor.
[* red] But wait, itwait—it seems that this module is notisn't used between 1x-5x zoom, coming into play beyond 5x zoom only.
[* black] The P30 Pro has five cameras in total (top to bottom): A 20 MP ultra wide angleultra-wide-angle, a 40 MP wide anglewide-angle with the Time-of-Flight camera next to it, the 8 MP telephoto, and of course the front facingfront-facing camera with an impressive 32 MP.
[* icon_note] InterestinglyInterestingly, the 40 MP camera sensor switched from an RGGB (Red/Green/Green/Blue) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayer_filter|bayer filter|new_window=true] to a RYYB (Red/Yellow/Yellow/Blue) pattern. This pattern is said to increase light sensitivitysensitivity, and could help with contrast since they ditched the monochrome sensor from last year's [guide|104605|P20 Pro|stepid=201984|new_window=true].
