Huawei caught insinuating that the P9's dual cameras snapped a professionally taken photo48
What Huawei didn't consider was that the EXIF data was available for anyone to peruse. Sure enough, somebody did. As it turned out, the photo was actually snapped by the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. The body of this camera only, goes for $2600 on Amazon. Oops. And the lens employed for the photo, an EF70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM, will run you another $1900. Our math skills might have decayed throughout the years, but using fingers, toes and other appendages, we computed that the equipment used to take the photograph amounted to $4500. That is several times the price of the Huawei P9.
When confronted by this, Huawei took down the image and released a statement that basically admitted that the P9 was not used for the photo. Huawei did say that it's intentions were not to mislead, but to "inspire our community." The company added that it should have been clearer with its caption, although we should point out that nowhere in the caption did Huawei say that the picture was snapped using the P9. It was insinuated, but not explicitly stated.
So would you give Huawei a medal, or put it in the penalty box? The decision is up to you.
