Huawei P20 Pro vs RED Cinema Camera


The RED Digital Cinema Camera versus the Huawei
P20 Pro, but you already knew that, I mean you saw the title, right? Like that’s why
you’re clicking and watching right now. That thing took me so long to setup that the
sun is pretty much setting now. I thought I was gonna have a little bit more time to
film, things always take longer than you expect. Huawei P20 Pro, a ton of you guys requested
me to test out this camera. I havn’t even heard of this phone until you guys asked me
to review it. They don’t even sell it in the US so I had to order from some weird German
website. Had my roommate kind of translate some German for me to try to order this and
didn’t really know what I was doing. Just after I did all the work and got it, I realized
now they’re selling it on Amazon here so great. You’re looking at the phone right now and
you know, it’s not looking too bad. We’re filming in 4K right now. You don’t get image
stabilization in 4K so that’s a bummer. It was mounted on a tripod but the wind was blowing
pretty hard pushing it around. Let’s take a look at the RED now. Colors are much more
neutralized but there’s definitely a lot more detail in there. All this footage is straight
out of the camera, no color correction. So if the colors are a little bit too dull for
your personal taste remember, it’s much easier to add color and contrast. So that’s the plus
side of shooting flat. The Huawei is definitely pretty sharp, the details and everything,
pop but for my personal taste, it looks a little bit too much like artificial sharpening.
What do you guys think? Now, I just got to say this. When I found out that there’s no
image stabilization in 4K and that kind of made the 4K useless to me, the smaller your
camera is, the harder it’s gonna be able to hold it stable. So when you’re dealing with
phones, I just feel like it’s a necessity and that alone is enough of a reason for me
to not want to really switch to this phone and just stick with my iPhone 10. The
iPhone 10 at 4K keeps everything nice and smooth and the Huawei, you just see every
little jitter, every step. So if I ever use this camera to shoot a vlog, I’ll probably
just shoot in HD and keep that image stabilization. And yes, those little hiking boots are adorable.
She didn’t like them at first but now she loves them. This camera is just way too shaky.
Sorry for getting sidetracked, back to the comparison. So right now, we have our RED
30 to 90 millimeters all at a T2.0. So now, we’re gonna do a couple more test shots with
it. It’s overcast day, the Huawei set on a 3x zoom so you can immediately see a big loss
in quality. It’s technically still at 4K but it’s a digital zoom which is never as good
as if you could zoom in the lens. Now, if we look at this shot from the RED, yeah, that’s
pretty much a wrap on this video, you guys get the point. Now, let’s look at a little
bit of slow-mo because who doesn’t love slow-mo? If you hate slow-mo, you might be a sociopath,
you might want to talk to your psychiatrist about that. Now, the Huawei has more frame
rate options even more than the RED. So, how well does it work? Here’s some slow-motion
samples from the Huawei P20 Pro. I actually think it’s so awesome that all these smartphones
now are having 120 or 240 frames per second in slow motion. You can ramp this all the
way up to 960 frames per second in a very short burst, but to me, it doesn’t look like
real 960 frames per second. For example, if you use software like Twixtor, you can shoot
at whatever frame rate and it artificially draws in those frames to make it seem smoother.
You can spot this by looking at the tail and the ears. I feel like super slow-motion is
just so much fun and it just never gets old playing with it, and the slow-motion footage
out of the P20 Pro, definitely solid but at the same time, you can’t really call this
cinematic like if you were watching National Geographic or planet Earth and this shot came
up, you’d be like, “Meh.” But the RED on the other hand, just imagine I have a British accent
and a less annoying voice, okay? Que some dramatic music. At this point of the day,
the canines partake in their favorite yet deadly activity, it’s called the fetch where
their natural hunting instincts are unleashed. Their master launches their squeaky prey into
the distant unknown. The moment the target is released, the canines rush after it at
lightning speeds, all the way into the ice cold water. Okay, maybe it was an ice cold,
cold enough to where you would put your toe in there and be like, “Wow, that’s pretty
cold.” They return the prize to its rightful owner and then they do it again and for some
reason they find this amusing. There’s a bunch of skunks here trying to haunt us. We thought
we had gotten away clean but on the drive back, it became very apparent that somebody
probably took a jog through the skunk’s nest. Her room smells so bad. Apparently, tomato
soup is supposed to help absorb the smell. I went on Google for like two minutes to research
this tomato sauce remedy, it turns out it actually barely works, it’s more of a myth
[laughs] oops. So, it turns out the tomato sauce thing is a myth. Oh. [Laughter] But back to it. You guys get the
point, it’s not about the resolution or what’s on the spec sheet, it’s more about this versus
this. So, what did we learned today? A cinema camera that costs a fortune is better than
a camera phone even if it has three lenses. Was that obvious? Are you gonna complain now
that this was a totally pointless video, you didn’t learn anything? Well, how about I teach
you a little something about these nuts, these nuts. I don’t know what you were thinking,
you weirdo. Harvard University did a huge study where they followed a 120,000 people
for over 30 years. I mean, they started this study back in the days of Led Zeppelin. Quick
moment of silence. I mean, how do you even keep track of a 120,000 people for 30 years?
I can’t keep track of my keys for a day. It categorized everybody to six different groups,
people that don’t eat any nuts all the way up to people that eat nuts every single day.
And what did they find out? The more nuts they ate, the less likely they were to die
during that 30-year study. Oh, it’s got the good cholesterol, lowers the bad cholesterol,
antioxidants, all that good science nutrition stuff that you don’t really care about, but
you kind of want to live longer and be healthy so that’s why you’re gonna force yourself
to eat some nuts, even suggest that eating nuts regularly can be just as beneficial to
your life expectancy as running four hours a week. I just ran like two and a half right
there. Now, there’s a lot of people out there that say, “Oh, it’s high in fats. It’s gonna
make you chubby.” You could just tell them to shut up. They’ve done a ton of studies
to see if nuts will actually make you gain weight and they all say no because nuts are
also very high in fiber and protein to make sure that you stay full longer and you get
those gains bro. I can’t rip my shirt I need to work out.  So, next time you’re
at the store, pick up some nuts, preferably unsalted because you want to lower that sodium
intake, keep that blood pressure nice and hopefully you think, “Oh, I’m so glad I watched
that potato jet video, that was totally not a waste of eight minutes.” So, let’s get back
to camera stuff. Obviously, a phone is never gonna be able to compete with a Cinema RED
camera that’s decked out, but what if you strip down the RED, just put like a little basic lens
on here and just shoot like normal stuff, like if we were to document simple things
like the dogs first time seeing a Roomba. Now, the RED is definitely a huge pain on
shooting stuff like this, it’s much heavier, you’re always wondering if it’s in focus and
double checking all your settings. No more dog hair. Yay! And if you’re wondering, yes, Carrie
is a crazy dog lady but it works out, I take advantage of her dogs for content. And the
dogs and the Roomba have not yet become friends. I should also mention that I love how RED
shoots in raw. Aside from the sharpness, there’s a ton more information captured in the RED.
For example, let’s look at this shot. I’m gonna darken it to try to get some information
out of the windows, nothing. The camera just doesn’t record any of that information. Switch
it over to RED, what you’re looking at right now is just the settings that was shot on.
What’s awesome about raw is that you can go back and change the settings in the camera.
It’s as close at time-travelling as you can get, at least as far as the government wants
us to know. And since you have all this information, you can bring down the windows just a little
bit so it doesn’t look so blown out. So if you’re that guy that always shoots on the
wrong setting, this raw capability might save you once in a while. And now, just looking
at a couple more clips, the RED generally just looks a little bit more natural and organic
to me whereas the Huawei, it just looks a little bit like it’s been over sharpened.
But really, the fact that we’re even comparing these two cameras is insane, like the shot
of the salad doesn’t look too bad and I was also pretty impressed at its low-light capabilities.
It’s not perfect, it starts to look a little bit pasty and artificial but at least you
can see what’s going on, which is pretty impressive. The RED is at 2000 ISO and the lenses at F1.8.
I still think the RED is a clear winner, it’s sharper, everything looks much more natural,
it has that cool red look to it. But with Huawei, I’m actually pretty impressed. A lot
of times at night if you just whip out your phone to try to film something, you’re not
necessarily trying to get the most cinematic footage, you just want to see what’s going
on, and the Huawei I think achieves that. By the way, I dropped the Huawei’s resolution
from 4K to HD so I get that image stabilization totally worth that smoother footage. And just
to put things into perspective, this is what my iPhone 10 looks like in the same lighting,
definitely darker and grainer. I think Huawei is doing something to enhance this image and
it makes it look a little bit pastier but it looks so much brighter, so that’s pretty
cool. But once you start walking with it in low-light, you definitely see that digital
image stabilization trying to kick in. So, points for the iPhone for its image stabilization,
which brings me to my final point. The Huawei can look really good in the right condition,
but in terms of video, I think this is far from being the best camera phone. This is
selfie mode on a slightly cloudy day. So if you’re a vlogger, this is how your footage
is gonna come out. There’s just so much over sharpening that makes everything look kind
of, uhg. The highlight roll off is pretty terrible, the skin tones don’t look very natural
and vibrant. Here, the dogs just blending in with the ground, there’s just not enough
depth in the color. To me, it kind of feels like they were just aiming for high numbers
on a spec sheet but they left out a lot of crucial things that make a video look really
nice. Putting it side-by-side with my iPhone again, the iPhone 10 just looks a whole lot
more natural, the Huawei, it just kind of looks like someone put a really bad Instagram
filter on it. But I kind of want to know what you guys think. Do you guys agree with me?
Do you guys think that Huawei looks better? I feel like you put a lot of focus into the
camera for photography and stills which is awesome, but they kind of just like we’re
like, nah, for the video. I still prefer the Galaxy and the iPhone over this. But the still
camera on this is pretty interesting I must say like they’ve done some innovative stuff
like here, they can see that it’s food so they put the settings on it for food like
nuts. They still have a little ways to go for video but I must say, I’m very interested
to see what kind of stuff they do in the future. That’s all I got for you guys. Thank you so
much for watching and also thanks for recommending this camera to test out, it’s been interesting
for sure. And I got to go clean all these nuts off the ground so.

  1. bruh use huawei p30 pro for intense stabilization even if its been zoomed
    edit: oops i think at this year p30 pro isnt available anyone in 2019?

  2. hahaha . budak2 smartphone panas sbb fon drg kalah haha, video ni sindir kamu yg bangga dgn fon yg kamu fikir dh hebat dri camera hahahahhaha .. padan mukaa ..

  3. Необходимо делать то, что еще никто не делал, – только так можно добиться успеха, только так можно сохранить лидерство

  4. Can you use your red camera underwater..?
    Well i think huawei wins, i used them many many many many times

    Nutsssssssss

  5. Surely studies should account for excercise per person , alcohol intake, vegetable in take, processed food intake. I just don't see how only looking at one single food item can prove enough.

  6. Comparing video quality of RED with a mobile phone is nuts… you can buy a hundred Huawei for the price of a RED, and it is clear that… of course the RED wins in every aspect of video taking, but I sure wouldn't be dragging a RED everywhere I go. Btw, iphone X is so yesterday (sorry iphone fans.)

  7. Tiny sensor, Tiny lens… No good for video.

    Shoot telephoto for real video production.

    Any camera can shoot wide.

    Only great cameras can shoot 10mm-500mm

  8. helw sir & frends my name pranob im new youtubar plz come my YouTube chaneel.plz help me..comment plz sir

  9. I think you should also compare phone with Filmic PRO so that it's a bit more head-to-head comparison with RED camera because its format.

  10. mierda pensaba comprar un cell con buena cámara pero ya me decidí ahora quiero una cámara y un cel media gama

  11. i have $100 now, and this video makes me confuse which one should i buy, red dragon camera or huawei p20 pro..

  12. Those hiking shoes though 🤟🏻🤟🏻🤟🏻 I bought a pair for my dog as well…whats best is the way your he walks after putting it on for the first time…

  13. The lady has a scoop to throw doggy-toys in the air and the chap couldn't afford a $70 gimbal? Did he notice how the iPhone achieves 4K Stabilization by cropping and zooming the video?

  14. What's the point? You compare incomparable, and trying to humiliate Huawei p 20pro on unreal basis? You havent heard of that phone? Well. Doesn't surprise me.. There's a LOT of simple things you Americans/naturalized Americans have no idea whatsoever so..

  15. Нууу жопу с пальцем сравнили чё сказать, а так интересно было!

  16. Bro wat is relationships between a pro camera and smart phone y wats wrong with you

  17. How come u filmed the same movements is it actually live or recorded or there's someone else filming from the phone and u from the camera

  18. Huawei with bring raw feature on its phones after applying hongmeng os

    But if put Red lens on Huawei phone will do the job :/ I forget that Red sensor as size of whole phone 😂😁 almost

    Next video you film planet earth III dogs chapter 😀
