If you’re still on the fence about buying a Pixel 2, take a look at this sample video shot this morning at the miniature railway operated by Hornsby Model Engineers Co-Op Ltd in Galston, in Sydney’s north. This is a weekend favourite of ours, and once a month we get the chance to take the kids on the mini trains. Something I thoroughly enjoyed as a kid, and the boys enjoy it too. There’s nothing especially exciting about the video; it’s just shot from my knee around the 1km track that HME runs, but it’s super smooth, the bumps in the track are smoothed out, and there’s been no editing whatsoever – shot on the Pixel 2, uploaded to YouTube and published. Bam.

You’ll note this was only shot in 1080p, so no, a 4K version isn’t available. But even for 1080p, the quality is pretty good. I’m quite happy with it and thought I’d share it with you all.

    OIS is doing an awesome job there.. Steady as. Quality is probably even better on your phone since YouTube likes to compress it a bit.. BTW, my 9yo daughter just saw this video as well and she wants me to take her there, Lol..

    That stability is absurdly good. Seems like Google absolutely nailed the OIS+EIS combo.

    Great video. Seems like Cameron is after something a little more exciting. When he’s a little older you should visit the Gold Coast and try a few attractions up here. He’d probably love rollercoasters.

    Sensational! My Pixel 2 XL is on its way from Google. Can’t wait to try it out!
