New Camera Features in Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL
Both phones have a single 12.2-megapixel rear camera and two 8-megapixel lenses on the front.
HDR+ is turned on by default, this combines eight frames into one shot.
Super Res Zoom: Offers sharp, clear detail when you digitally zoom in to a scene — that’s without a telephoto lens.
Night Sight: Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL promise clear and bright low-light photos without switching onto the flash mode. This will build off Google’s already considerable low-light strength.
After all, Google Pixel smart phones are known for their innovative camera and software that takes the pleasure of taking photos to the next level.
Photobooth mode: A very interesting feature and when you switch on this setting Pixel 3 will snap photos when the subject smiles or makes a funny face.
op Shot: A very interesting and innovative camera feature. When motion capture is turned on, Top Shot, which arrives “later,” will recommend a better version of a shot you may have missed. It’s designed for correcting candid photos, like someone diving into the pond. You also have the option choose your own from what the phone grabbed while the motion capture was on.
Taking a Group selfie isn’t so much a convenient mode or button you press as you flipping the camera toward yourself and manually zooming out to the wide-angle lens but still adds some value to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL when it comes to the camera.
Playground: There’s also something for AR enthusiasts, swipe a button in the camera to toss characters, including Star Wars’ BB-8, Marvel’s Iron Man and Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) into the landscape you see through the viewfinder.
