‘No DSLR, no tripod, no problem,’ Justin Ng was able to capture the galaxy and even some shooting star trails – all with a smartphone.
Singapore-based photographer Justin Ng was able to reach new heights with the zooming capacity of Huawei’s P30 Pro when he captured the Milky Way.
Ng documented the whole experience and posted it on his website, Justin Ng Photography.
Having received his Huawei P30 Pro right on time on April 6 when the night sky in Mersing, Malaysia would be clear, Ng was able to capture our galaxy and even some shooting star trails – all with a smartphone.
“To be honest, I didn’t expect it to be so easy! All I did was to point and shoot HANDHELD in Photo mode (Master AI enabled automatically) and let P30 Pro performed (sic) its magic. Many of my friends asked me what did I do to the image and some even though I’ve brightened the image but hell no! I did nothing. Nothing at all. Here are more images of my attempts, handheld and unedited,” wrote Ng.
He took another time lapse of some shooting stars which could be seen in the video below
“Overall, I find the astrophotography images from P30 Pro acceptable but I would still prefer to use a DSLR for the serious shoot. But then again, the best camera is the one you have with you,” said Ng.
