With the rapid growth of short videos, young people have increasingly turned to vlogging to record and share their daily moments with the world around them. The Honor 50 brings the one-take vlog shooting experience to the next level.

Offering even more choice when it comes to capturing content, users can also apply beauty mode, capture photographs from videos, and use pre-set video story templates on all their footage. In addition, wireless headsets connected via Bluetooth can be used as wireless microphones during video capture. Creators can achieve better sound reception while shooting videos, providing an effortless vlogging experience.
