How good is the new Pixel 3 camera? Well, I just did a comparison between a Pixel 2 vs. Pixel 3 cameras and the results are very interesting. It seems that most of the improvements on Pixel 3 back camera is from better software processing but I do not see much difference in the camera sensor/lens. Eventually, you should be able to get all new Pixel 3 camera features on your Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 with a modded APK.
Here’s a quick video I put together using LG V40 camera in 4K! Now, because a lot of the shots were in super low-light, I did have to apply some noise-reduction in post using Neat Video but still, you can get some decent shots with the LG V40 in low-light using the manual video mode and noise-reduction processing.Thoughts on the LG V40 back cameras for Low Light Videography
In this camera comparison, we take up the latest $300 Xiaomi Pocophone vs. Xiaomi Mi 8 vs. Samsung Galaxy S9 to see if the cheaper $300 Pocophone can live up to flagship cameras. For this camera comparison, I used many of the challenging low-light and street light situations that tests out the camera’s sensor and processing abilities.
In this low-light camera comparison, we take up the latest OnePlus 6 against the reigning king Pixel 2 and Samsung Galaxy S9. Which has the best low-light camera?
In this 4K camera test, I used the Samsung Galaxy S9+ for all shots except for airborne shots which I used the DJI Mavic Pro. I felt like this is very good combination for those of you who want to take some 4K videos on the go. Although I do have nicer cameras like the GH5 and A7rii, I wanted to see if I can get some high-quality shots with my smartphone. I also used the DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal to stabilize the Galaxy S9+, which comes in very handy also.
Over the week I borrowed my friend’s iPhone X and was able to do some low-light camera comparisons with photos and videos. These were all taken in auto mode for both phones and also 4K 30fps auto mode for videos. The result? Galaxy S9’s F1.5 is indeed impressive. In low-light, there is clear advantage to using Galaxy S9’s F1.5 over iPhone X’s F1.8.
For those of you who want to get Google HDR+ camera on your Samsung Galaxy S9/S9 Plus or any Android smartphone(should work on most), now you can do it using XDA user KisaKuKu’s port. While many other ports have not worked with latest Samsung S9/S9 Plus, this latest version works great and as you can see in the video, you can get nearly identical or better performance as Pixel 2 camera by using Google HDR+ camera. I have also tested on other devices like LG G6 and LG V20, both of which also work really well with this version of Google HDR+ camera and improves your photos by a mile.
In my last camera comparison between the Galaxy S9+ vs. Pixel 2 XL, a lot of people complained that I was using F1.5 Pro mode during daylight scenes and it probably wasn’t fair since many of the shots from S9+ came out a bit overexposed as the HDR is not enabled in Pro mode. While F1.5 Pro mode is certainly not useful at all times especially when there is too much light, my initial test was to test out amount of bokeh with F1.5, not so much with HDR.
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.
