Before we start, please understand I'm NOT a professional photographer or video content creator.
My knowledge about photography is pretty basic and with this article I want to show you, anyone getting his hands on this Mi 10 Pro is able to create amazing material!
Number 1 at DxOMARK
For the first time ever, Xiaomi took the number one spot with both Camera and Audio quality on DxOMARK.
According to the reviewers the Camera quality is similar to Xiaomi's CC9 Pro but gained so much more thanks to the latest Snapdragon 865 SoC.
They noticed a significant improvement on rendering, HDR, Night photography and corner sharpness. The Mi 10 Pro comes with a dual side stereo speaker set that will enrich the audio quality to enjoy music and videos like you never did before on a smartphone!
Mi 10 Pro Camera setup
2x Optical zoom, 10x Hybrid zoom, 50x Digital zoom
and useful tools & Information
Photography formats: Jpeg, Heif, Raw
Which file format suits me?
Camera frame (aspect ratio)
Aspect ratio is nothing more than the ratio of its width and height and is written as 'x-number':'x- number'.
You can select the ratio by yourself with each one having its own benefits:
Photography with Mi 10 Pro:
The Mi 10 Pro got the followings photography modes
Photo 108MP Portrait Panorama Night Pro
Open the Camera software and you land on the 'Photo' page where you immediatley can take a picture using the prime camera.
As you can see it is named as Photo 1x and is located in the center between 4 small white dots.
All these dots stand for different modes and will use 1 of the 4 quad camera's.
Macro (20MP Ultra Wide):
The Mi 10 Pro will turn its Ultra Wide camera into a Macro camera. Capture all details at close distance.
Up to 50x zoom
Xiaomi's Zoom possibilities are the best in the current mobile phone industry. It's unbelievable how much distance it can cover. I made a series of pictures from the same spot but using all different types of zoom.
0.6x (20MP ultra wide)
1x (108MP lens)
2x Optical zoom (12MP telephoto)
5x (8MP Telephoto)
50x Digital Zoom
Hey! This zoom is Awesome!

Xiaomi is one of the few smartphone brands that equipped an impressive 108MP camera inside their devices. I had to resize a few images to get it uploaded on a website. Check out the details as you zoom in.

What i really love about the portrait mode is the options to edit it afterwards. With the help of the Snapdragons AI performances it recognizes and seperate the object from the background extremely well. This results in great edits and there are so many options.
Something i haven't seen before, is making panaroma selfies! I tried to make a kind of low-key selfie with a bright sky and it turned out very cool!

Loving the Colors
As said earlier, this is more for the professional photographers who knows what they are doing.
You can manually control the camera just like a Canon or Nikon DSLR.
For those who want to try it out there is a little info button within the camera app which explains all features.
This feature is amazing. Scan a document, crop it, save.
We all came across a moment we need to sign a document and send it back.
Now you can skip the process of using a traditional scanner.
Never mind buying a poststamp and just send your documents very quick by email.
Videos can be recorded in 8K resolution over 30 frames per second while 4K is possible with 60 FPS.
Just as with taking pictures it is possible to choose any of the quad camera's and play with the mi 10 pro zooming capabilities up to 6X.
Other video modes:
Mi Vlog Video
OIS and EIS are both present the Mi 10 pro which is a great outcome for people who don't use any extra's like for example a gimbal. As soon as you select the Super Stabilisation the quality will decrease to maximum 1080P (30FPS) but gain an extra steady camera in return.
I love to shoot videos when I go out with my family but one thing that stops me from doing this is the need to carry a gimbal along all the time. With the Mi 10 pro I can enjoy the moments and keep the phone in my pocket and have it up and running in a second.
Due the Corona outbreak I had to change my plans regarding my ideas of showing the phones capabilities. I was about to make a video showing you the city using a gimball and one testing the super stabilisation when I go out with the fam.
Now both videos are made without any help of a gimbal and I just took a small little 3 dollar tripod with me.

A triple Homerun! DXOMARK ranked the Mi 10 pro as number 1 and brings the best audio experience on a Mobile Phone!
The Mi 10 pro comes with a dual sided stereo speakerset. Instead of its direct competition (Like samsung s20 Ultra) both speakers have the same size to bring you the best sound possible. The flagship phone is certified by Hi-Res audio. It doens't matter in which way you hold your phone as the Mi 10 Pro automatically detects its orientation (Right and left side). This is absolutely a great improvement in gaming as you can here the footsteps of your enemy and know where he/she is walking.
The sound improved that much it is even enjoyable to watch a movie or listen to your favorite music.
You can even feel the bass a little bit!
Unfortunately i don't have the right equipment to record the great stereo quality.
To give you an idea of what the Mi 10 pro can deliver I have made the following video and compared it with the Mi 9.
