We can’t yet pre-order the Pixel 2 as yet here in Australia, but with the phone announced it seems Google is opening up about the camera today offering photo and video samples.

We’ve seen the technical run-down on how Google made the camera on the Pixel 2, now it’s time to just appreciate how good these shots are. There are a total of 34 photos and videos in this https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipO2_gTkgT1QwgYaWCTowaN6d2Cb5rvyJU10cjAdSU9Ao8v9Ec-r1v1cKdWEx6PNqg?key=WEdYT3BMNFZGdUlwQ0l6aEdFT1UwVlg2LUZESDhnGoogle photos album shared on the Google Support forum by Googler ‘IsaacOnCamera’ or Isaac Reynolds who spoke about EIS in the Pixel phones last year.

The Google Pixel 2 (and 2 XL) have the same camera, a 12.2MP sensor with 1.4μm pixel size. The camera comes with everything to try making it great in low-light and offset any shaking in your hands with Optical + electronic image stabilisation and autofocus using laser + dual pixel phase detection. That f/1.8 aperture should also make for an interesting time in low-light and the 8MP selfie camera with Portrait mode should be good too.

So, technicalities aside, the photos and video coming from the camera look really great. Here’s a selection:

There’s some good video examples of what Optical and Electronic Image Stabilisation does on video captured on the Pixel 2 as well.

It’s always fun to see DxOMark scores rolled out at launch these days and the 98 scored by Google with the Pixel 2 seems good, but the proof of course is always in the pudding and here are the examples, check them out and let us know what you think.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Not worth $1500 by a long shot. The latest firmware update for the oneplus 5 has improved the photos a lot and at less than half the price worth it.
