How to make most of the range of pro and custom camera modes on the Honor 7x

The Honor 7X offers a dual rear camera setup consisting of 16MP + 2MP cameras and offers a number of photography modes

Honor is not stranger to offering dual camera toting smartphones. With the company's newest smartphone, the Honor 7X, the company is continuing that tradition. The camera offers a 16MP + 2MP configuration with the 2MP unit being used to gauge depth. This information is then used to take quick and simple bokeh shots by turning on Portrait Mode. However, the Honor 7X has a lot more to offer than just that. Let’s take a look at how some of the features work and how to make the best of them. To access these features, simply swipe right from the camera app.

Light painting mode

Light painting mode leaves the shutter open for longer. As a result, you’ll be able to take amazing photos with light trails. However, since the shutter is open for a longer period of time, more light enters the sensors. As a result, if there is too much light, the resulting image can end up being over exposed. That’s why you’re better off taking such images at night, or when the light is low. In order to ensure clarity. Try to keep your hand as still as possible, or use a tripod.

Time Lapse

Time lapse pictures are those videos in which everything seems to move at super speed. This is especially striking when used to take videos of things that generally move at a slower pace such as clouds moving across the sky or a building being built. The biggest thing to know about such videos is that a minute or so of video, may only result in a few seconds of video. Further, make sure that phone is kept perfectly still for the entire duration of the video, preferably via a tripod.

Pro Mode

If you think you are knowledgeable enough to take full control, you should check out the Pro Mode. With this mode on, get complete control over all the different setting of the camera such as ISO, focus, white balance and more. So if you know your way around a camera and how the different setting can affect an image, then this mode is just what you need to take high quality images.


Effects and filters helps you turn a boring ol’ picture into something that you can be proud of. Filters let’s you give your photos an artsy vibe as it plays around with colours, saturation and contrast for a particular look. There are multiple filters you can choose from. Effects lets you add unique effects to each photo you take, making them look more fun. There are a bunch of effects for you to choose from, so you are free to choose one that best suit your taste.


Some of the modes on the phone are pretty self explanatory. For example,, the Night Mode is especially made for taking photos in low light conditions. This helps take brighter images, when the lighting conditions are less than ideal. Similarly, HDR mode lets the camera take high quality pictures by taking multiple images and combining it into a single image. However, this is ideally used where the subject is stationary, such as landscapes. Let’s take a look at some of the more specific modes.
