Google Pixel video samples: low-light, 1080p 60FPS, 4K with EIS

Google Pixel video samples: low-light, 1080p 60FPS, 4K with EIS
Australian mobile carrier Telstra accidentally began shipping Google Pixel pre-orders yesterday, a week before the official Oct. 20 launch date, which, naturally, lead to dozens of lucky, earlier-than-early adopters bragging about their new acquisitions online. Since envy is not the best personality trait, not to mention a waste of time, we'd advise you to just be happy for those fortunate Aussies who got their hands on Google's new smartphones early, and take a look at these video samples from their Pixels. Alright, mates? Here we go.

First off, we have three vids showcasing the Pixel's video recording capabilities in low-light situations.

So, what do you think of these video samples? Google claims that the Pixel and Pixel XL sport “the best phone cameras ever”, and while we can't put this bold claim to the test quite yet, we are happy to see some samples from the few folks who managed to get their hands on the phones early.

The video seems jittery, could have been better for a phone which cost this much.

The image stabilization is excellent. off topic: I don't know what's wrong with the pages of Phonearena but seems to load FOREVER even if I stop the loading (Ublock is off). The text is full of green underlined words that open ads like those that malware create. I don't have this problem with other pages in other sites. What's wrong with this one? Any ideas?

Looks like the Normal Phone Arena site to me. Riddled with adds. Most of them are full page with auto playing video and sound. It's awesome. It's why it's slow as crap.

"Ublock is off" That's the problem right there, it should NEVER be off. Ease off the cosmetic filtering and create manual rules to block all but the ad showing them cry in a corner.

Video is not as stable as the Xperia XZ . XZ's stabilisation is by far untouched by other phones

Do you ever comment anything other than: "lol *insert brand* phones suck? You did the same about Samsung phones.

Not bad in my Opinion. Low Light conditions may seem more jittery due to focusing issues and the fast pace in which the individual was walking. I saw another video where an individual was in a parking lot during the day and it was almost as if he was floating, then he jogged and it was as extremely stable. The phone in day light is much more stable than any phone I have ever experienced, evnd the Iphone which I had considered the king in this department. This quick jostle through the Backyard in "no light" conditions doesn't jostle me one bit on the capabilities of the camera.

That EIS is really impressive. but they need to do a lot of tweaking for a better focusing.

Not impressive enough, considering it's price tag, the so much camera hype and the rather questionnable score of 89 it got a dxomark.
