The camera is one of the most outstanding novelties of new Pixel of Google phones, but as at the moment they have not come to the market, the evidence we’ve seen are that has shown us the company, in addition to the study by DxOMark. However, logistics of an Australian operator error has caused Google Pixel reach some customers a week ahead of time, and we can already take a look to the first video recorded with the device.
To refresh the memory, the Pixel have a rear camera 12 megapixel with f/2.0 lens and focus detection phase. In the section of the video we find the option of record 4 k and, for the first time, with stabilizer -Although that Yes, it’s an electronic stabilizer. We see how it works in a real test.
If it was not clear, vertical format and the movements make us clear that the video was recorded by a user of a foot. The format doesn’t let us see it full screen, so it is not the best way to appreciate the result, but it is enough to get an idea of how it behaves in real-life situations.
Despite not being an optical stabilizer, Google Pixel EIS does a good job smoothing movements camera and avoiding the habitual tremors when holding the phone. He also maintains the approach very well when approaching the flowers quite suddenly, although to get a stick, setting the exposure to changing of lighting could be a little faster, but in general the result promises.
The same user also put to the test videos recording their new night Pixel, as seen in the clip above. The stabilizer is still doing a good job, but in this case the noise makes an appearance and it is noticeable to the naked eye. In his YouTube channel other videos can be recorded at different resolution and frequency, as well as a test of the AF as works by phase detection.
A few days ago we talked about the decision of choosing an electronic stabilizer instead of one optical, something which aroused doubts of some users on the company forums. Google defended ensuring that electronic stabilizer works better in movie recording and their new Pixel already offer very good results when making pictures in low light, so you do not need the optical stabilizer.
The truth is that, by the images that we have seen, the Pixel camera give very good results in low light situations, but as always, we will have to wait to be able to check it first hand.
