Hi Xiaomi users waiting for moon mode :)|
You should use MI8/MI8 Pro for this tutorial, it works on these phones, i don't know if it works on any other Xiaomi phones, submit your photos, and your phone type, and i will edit this list below:
Currently working on:
Xiaomi MI 8/MI 8 Pro.
Redmi Note 7
Mi Mix 3
Probably all the phones with Pro mode, and telephoto lens.
(Xiaomi MI 9 and the other xiaomi phones that got moon mode, is not getting on the list)
Make sure, it's dark outside, and you can see the moon properly :)
Open your phone's camera, and change mode to Manual/Pro. Make sure every settings in manual mode is set to default.
Change lens to TELEPHOTO lens, if your phone doesn't have that, then you can try with the wide lens, but then your photo is not going to look good.
Set focus to 100, and ISO to 100, and set the timer to 3s, to avoid any vibrations that came from pressing the shutter button.
Get a tripod, or something where your phone can stand.
Find the moon on your phone camera, should be centered. Zoom in 8x times, if you wan't better looking photo, then use 4-5x times zoom.
The last step, set your shutter speed to 1/125, or 1/60 to get the moon look nice. For me, these 2 shutter speed configs given the best looking photo.
