Complete camera review of Redmi note 9 pro tec4world

Hey guys its Ahmad khan from 

tec4 world and here is My detailed camera review of the Redmi Note 9 Pro

  • .

 In the past, Redmi’s Note series smartphoneshave had the best set of cameras in the budget segment.

 Will the Redmi Note 9 Pro carry the torchforward? Let us find out.



 Like the Note 8 Pro, Note 9 Pro also comes with 4 cameras at the back. 

And they are placed in a square cluster. Primary camera gets a 48 Megapixel sensorwith F/1.8 aperture and a 26mm lens. 

Then there is a 8 megapixel sensor with F/2.2aperture and it is coupled with a 13mm ultra-wide lens. 

Macro camera now gets a 5 megapixel sensorwith F/2.4 aperture. 

And there is a 2 megapixel depth sensor witF/2.4 aperture. 

With the primary camera, you can shoot 4kunstabalised videos at 30fps. 

And 1080p videos at upto 120fps. For slow motion videos, you can shoot 120/240and 960fps videos in 720p resolution. 

At the front you get a 16 megapixel selfiecamera, and with 1080p 30fps videos, now you can even shoot 720p 120fps slow motion videos. 

Interface of the camera app is pretty muchsimilar to other Redmi smartphones.

 There is a macro mode, but it is hidden inthe secondary menu. In the Pro mode, you can adjust various settingslike white balance, focus, shutter speed, ISO and exposure. 

You can also turn on focus peeking, whichmakes it easier to see which areas of the scene is in focus, or you can turn on Zebras,which lets you know which areas of the image are being over exposed.

 There is also an option to shoot RAW images,and all these settings are even available for shooting videos. Range for shutter speed from 1/4000th of asecond, all the way ups to 30 seconds. 

And the range for ISO is from 100 to 3200. Now before we get back to the image and videosamples, if you are new to this channel, please make sure to hit the subscribe button andthe bell icon next to it. 

That way, youtube will make sure, you arenotified when a new video goes up on this channel. Let us start with the daytime images.

 This the new GM2 sensor from Samsung, andR Note 9 Pro is the first smartphone to use it.

 And as you can see, It can capture lot ofdetails in various bright lighting situations.

 I feel that the camera tries to over exposemost of the times, so I had to manually pull the brightness slider down a bit, for mostof these shots. 

I don’t think its big issue, but I hopeRedmi takes care of it in the next update. 

It is a 48 megapixel sensor, but these are12 megapixel images. Which means, they use pixel binning, and combineinformation from 4 pixels into 1 pixel, giving us sharper results. 

Note 9 Pro seems to be adding a slight warmertone to most of its images 

Other than that, colours seem good from it. There is also a Pro colour mode, which boostsand saturates the colours even further. S

if you like an extra bit of punch in thecolours of your images, you can use this mode. 

Coming to the HDR shots

This is an image with the HDR mode turnedoff. It looks nice, curtains are nicely exposed,but the parts outside the window are a bit blown out. With the HDR mode turned on, you can get backmost of those details, and the image looks really good. T

mode helps the camera preserve lot ofthe details in the brighter areas, while also bringing up more details from the shadows. In some situations like this, it helps theimage look so much better.

 If you zoom in, you can see there is noisein the darker parts of this image, but zooming out, overall image looks really good, thanksto the HDR mode. These have all been 12 megapixel images, butyou can switch to the 48 megapixel mode, and take higher resolution images.

 Just like with the GM1 sensor, it is stilldifficult to make out the difference between the 12 and 48 megapixel images. In fact, in most of these shots, 12 megapixelimages turn out to be sharper. It is in very bright lighting conditions,that we see the images shot in the 48 megapixel mode show more details. But you have to zoom way in, on these images. And these 48 megapixel images are 4 timesbigger in terms of file size. 

I think the difference is between these imagesis not very obvious, so it is best to stick to the 12 megapixel mode for all of your shots. 



Now the secondary camera on this phone getsa wide lens, and here is how much more of the scene it lets you get in the shot, comparedto the primary camera. Although images from these wide lens are notas sharp as the ones from the primary camera, and there is noticeable distortion towardsthe edges of the shot. But it is still nice to have this lens onour smartphone, as it lets you capture a different perspective of the scene. It specially comes in handy in the situations,where you have to get a lot in your image, and you don’t have any more space to moveback. Before we move on to the close up and macroshots, here is a quick focusing speed test, of the primary camera. It is not the quickest to switch the focusfrom far to a near object. And sometimes it just fails at focusing. 

I don’t know if this is a problem whichcould be fixed with a software update, but if it is, I really hope some at Redmi is workingon fixing it. When it does manage to set the focus, hereare how the close up shots turned out. The subject that you are trying to focus onis nice and sharp. And since it gets a wide F/1.8 aperture, backgroundof this close up shots, gets a good amount of optical blur. The size of the sensor is also large, so asyou get close to the subject, the plane of focus stats getting narrower, making it evenharder to keep things that are closer to the camera in focus. 

To fix this, and to let you get even closerto the subject, there is a dedicated macro camera. By switching to this, you can get as closeas 2 cm from your subject, and still be able to set the focus. This sensor is not the best at capturing accuratecolours, and there is a lot of noise, if you try taking these images in anything but ideallighting conditions. But it is still cool to be able to get somuch closer to the subject, and take these macro shots. Now moving on to Portrait shots. I have always said, that portrait mode onsmartphones, is the easiest way to give you images a professional look. 

Thanks to the dedicated depth sensor, Redmismartphones have got almost perfect at detecting the edges, and separating the subject fromits background. I would have liked if the main subjects hadeven more details in them, but nevertheless I really like how these portrait shots turnedout. You can adjust the amount of blur to the background,while or even after you have clicked the portrait shot. 

And you can even add various Light trail,and studio lighting effects to these portrait shots. You can do all of this, right from withinthe galleries app. Another one of my favourite modes is the Moviemode, that Redmi has started including in their smartphones. It lets you take 21:9 portrait shots, withblack bars at the top and bottom, to give you portrait shots a cinematic look. And it works really well.

 Look at how amazing these shots look. I have started clicking many of my portraitshots in movie mode, and I hope this mode gets even better with time. 

Accurate edge detection is carried forwardwhile taking portrait of objects. Note 9 Pro does really well, even if the objecthas complex edges, and the background is busy. If anything, I think the edge detection getseven better when taking portraits of objects. I just think it still tries to over exposethese images, and I had to pull the brightness slider down few notches, for all of theseshots. Moving on to low light images. This is the part, where the Redmi Note 9 Prostruggles a lot.

 I don’t know if it’s the new GM2 sensor,or if Redmi hasn’t optimised the software for low light photography, but the imagesare just not up to the mark, for these lighting conditions. You can switch to the night mode, but eventhen the images are just average at best. Night mode images do keep the exposure incheck, and make the colours look good, but other than that, there aren’t too many detailsin them as well.

 I think the Redmi Note 8 Pro still takes betterlow light images than this Note 9 Pro. So I really think Redmi needs to fix thissoon. And until they fix it, if you take lot ofimages in lower or artificial light, you should look at some of the other phones in this pricerange. That brings is to the only remaining camera. 

This 16 megapixel front facing camera capturesenough details to make your selfies look good. If you don’t want your selfies to appearsoft, you will have to turn the beauty mode off, every time you switch to the selfie camera. As it is on by default.

 There is HDR mode, so even if the backgroundis bright, your face will be properly exposed, like in all these shots. Even without a separate depth sensor, Note9 Pro does well to accurately detect the edges for these portrait selfies. And even if you have multiple people in theshot, it manages to keep their faces in focus, while blurring rest of the background.

 Dynamic range takes a big hit while takingthis portrait selfies. Here is a video from the front facing cameraof the Redmi note 9 pro. You can see how it handles overall coloursof the scene, exposure, and stabilisation when I am walking around with it. 4K 30fps videos are over saturated, and theydon’t get any king of stabilisation. If you want electronically stabilised videos,you will have to lower the resolution down to 1080p and shoot at 30fps. These videos, while not as detailed as the4K ones, still look good. So those were all the image and video samplesfrom the Redmi Note 9 Pro. It does really well when there is ample lightaround.

 it is always good to have a secondary widelens, as it lets you capture the same scene from a slightly different perspective. 

And the macro lens is treat for anyone wholove to get as close to their subject as possible. 

Portrait shots are amazing, which should beno surprise, as Redmi has been doing this well for quite some time now. 

Only disappointing part is the Note 9 Pro’slow light performance. I have seen phones that came out 1 or 2 yearsbefore it, taking better low light images than this. So I hope Redmi has people working on alltheir cylinders to fix Note 9 Pro’s low light performance. T

have been my thoughts about the camerason this Redmi Note 9 Pro. You guys just saw over 85 image and videosamples,
