Galaxy S9+ vs. Pixel 2 XL Camera Comparison! [Cloudy/Low-Light]

Pixel 2 series (Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL have identical cameras) are the king of smartphone photography and in this camera comparison, we are going to see if Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 Plus can do better.   While I was very excited for the new F1.5 aperture on the Galaxy S9/S9 Plus, after doing some tests it does not live up to expectations.

Best WiFi Security Camera of 2018! [ReoLink 5Ghz 1440P]

Looking for the BEST wireless security cameras of 2018? Well, check out my new Reolink cameras that do 5Ghz along with 1440P resolution, also price is much cheaper than name brand ones from companies like Nest. Also, setup is really easy, no need to mess with your router, just use the ReoLink app and sets everything up for you so you can monitor your home in the highest resolution possible from anywhere around the world.  Forget 720P of 1080P, if you want to actually CATCH burglars, you need the highest resolution possible, these cameras all do higher resolution than any other name-brand wireless security cameras on the market today.  I upgrade my security cameras every 6 months so this is the best I could get at the moment.  As soon as 4K cameras are out I will be upgrading to that also.

Pixel 2 4K Cinematic Camera Test! [HandHeld]

In this 4K cinematic camera test, I took the Pixel 2 on a trip to the beach with my daughter Peony to see how well it worked during sunset hours.  To my surprise, the Pixel 2 has an “amazing” stabilization using its OIS/EIS combo.  Now, the original Pixel also had OIS/EIS combo but wasn’t as good as the Pixel 2.  With better processor and better electronic stabilization algorithms, the Pixel 2 behaves like it is on a gimbal during good lighting.   Now, I did find stability does not work as well in low light and I assume this is due to the fact EIS(Electronic Image Stabilization) works by cropping out the mistakes.

“Pacifica” – LG G6 4K Cinematic Test!

About 20 years ago, I stumbled onto Pacifica, California, which is a small coastal city about 10 miles south of San Francisco.  Ever since then, I’ve really enjoyed playing golf and even fishing at the Pacifica Pier for crabs.  I would drive 45 minutes just to check out Pacifica every weekend.  Well, 6 years ago, I ended up buying my ocean-view dream house here and Pacifica is one of the best cities to live in the world in my opinion.
