Hello Mi Fans,
I know you've got intruiged in the 48mp camera of the Redmi Note 7 and for the incoming flagship phone of Redmi, the Redmi K20 Pro. I think you guys only think that photography was relying only at the pixel of the camera, so in that case you can tell if the photo was good or not.
Here's a thing, I highly advise that before you buy a new smartphone, please don't rely only on the pixel it has but the aperture of the camera it can.
Many people use smartphone to capture the events happening on their life, but also many photographers use smartphone as an alternative way to capture the subject instead of using DSLR cameras. I hear some user ask the photographer how can they do that beautiful shot using only the smartphone. The answer was, they use the manual mode on the built-in camera app.
Here is the thing that we will discuss:
Keep in mind that the Higher the ISO, the brighter you will get.
2. Aperture - was the hole or gap on the camera it self. It is also an opening of the camera where the light travels, specifically in a simple word this is the blur effect on the camera.

On the photo shown, the lower the aperture the bigger the hole. On the other hand, the lower the aperture the more blur effect you will get. Since we are talking about smartphone here, the nearer the object you need to lower your aperture to get focus on the subject. If the subject was too far you need to make the aperture higher so you can focus widely on the distance.
Here is a sample on the smartphone camera:

On this photo, you can see that my subject are near to my camera, so in order to focus on my subject I need to reduce the aperture. If you notice, the background on the image was blurred and only my subject was emphasize.

On this another photo, you can see that I get farther from my subject so in order to focus on my subject that was far from my camera I need to increase the aperture. And the background are still blurred but it is more noticeable than the first photo.

On this photo, you can see I am farther distance from my subject. In order to focus, again I need to increase my aperture. Now the background was noticeable because it was like I am taking a landscape photo.
Going back to this image, we can now say that it was true. The lower the aperture the more blur effect you will get, hence the nearer the object you need to lower your aperture to get focus on the subject and if the subject was too far you need to make the aperture higher so you can focus widely on the distance.
3. Shutter Speed - It was refer on how fast or slow you will close the window of the camera. It is like a blink of the eye. In other term, this is the exposure time when the film or digitizer of the camera will exposed to the light.

As the photo shown, if you set the shutter speed into 1/1000 second, you would probably have a freezing effect to the subject, but the exposure time was too fast so you probably get a dark photo. Hence, if you set to 1/2 second, you would probably get a motion blur image on the subject (if the subject was moving) and the exposure time is converted in to half second, so probably you would get a bright photo.
So on the other hand, it was like an exposure time how long or short you will expose the digitizer of the camera into light.
If you do a night photography, I know that it was too dark on the environment. So I suggest to set your shutter speed into 1/2 sec. or 2s. Keep in mind that if you expose into longer period of time you should use a tripod to stabilze the image.
4. Golden Triangle - It is refer to the balance exposure, aperture, and noise grains into image. The image was to be balance and equal, not too dark or bright and not too noisy or less noisy.

In this case, you need to control the ISO, Aperture, and Shutter speed.
Why should I learn this thing if the Auto mode are there to guide me?
Well, learning this kind of stuff about photography makes you more aware about your camera. I know it was too hard to learn this Manual mode but I am telling you, if you learn the manual mode you will be a great mobile photographer. Hence, you can also use this topic in terms of DSLR cameras.
