LG G6 Underwater Snorkeling Test!

Here’s an underwater snorkeling test with the LG G6. Yes IP68 rating is good enough to snorkel with it in sea salt water, just keep your phone no more than 5 feet underwater and you should be fine. Also rinse your phone off with fresh water after as salt left on the phone can make your seals degrade if you leave it. This isn’t my first time snorkeling with a waterproof phone, I used Galaxy S5 a few years back in Thailand, the phone still works even years later and still waterproof, you can check it out here.

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.
