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.

Galaxy S8 Plus 4K Cinematic Test in Low-Light! [Luxor, Las Vegas]

In my recent trip to Las Vegas, I took a few clips of the Luxor hotel (where I was staying) and put together a quick 4K cinematic test.  The results weren’t too shabby.  The lighting at Luxor hotel is terrible but it was a great test to do a low-light test.  Most of my clips actually have noise in the original clips as there was simply not enough lights in the pyramid.  I HAD to use some type of noise reduction program and fortunately I had Neat Video plugin for Adobe Premiere which basically gets rid of noise.

“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.
