Huawei Apologizes For Using $4500 DSLR Photo To Promote Smartphone Camera

EXIF data aside, the quality of bokeh in the now-removed shot seems to be a dead giveaway that no smartphone took it. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III retails for $2599, while the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L lens is $1,999. Huawei’s P9 smartphone costs around $660.

It has recently been highlighted that an image posted to our social channels was not shot on the Huawei P9. The photo, which was professionally taken while filming a Huawei P9 advert, was shared to inspire our community. We recognise though that we should have been clearer with the captions for this image. It was never our intention to mislead. We apologise for this and we have removed the image.
