A Paris press trip with Huawei

By Kirsten Scholte, 18 May 2020

This week Huawei introduced the HUAWEI P30 Series. To celebrate this launch we traveled to the French capital and thoroughly tested the phone’s camera during a Photography Experience Tour.

With a group of about 65 Dutch tech, news and lifestyle journalists, influencers and content creators from tech, we made our way to Paris. There we joined the other (international) guests for the launch at the Paris Convention Center. CEO Richard Yu officially introduced the HUAWEI P30, before we tested the device - or more specifically, its camera - in an experience centre.

No more SLR

And that camera, now that’s something else. A 40 megapixel main camera, 10x hybrid zoom, an ultra wide angle, 32 MP selfie camera: everything a  smartphone photographer could ever dream of. From now on, you can leave your SLR at home..

Photography Experience

Alrighty, the specs sound convincing. But to really believe it, you have to see it for yourself. So, after an evening boat trip on the Seine, it was about time to test the brand new P30 in real life. On a beautiful day and armed with these new phones we toured along the most Instagrammable hot spots of Paris. The result: great shots and even better poses. We’ve made a selection of our faves.
