Both of my cats were staring out the window waiting for a squirrel to run down the tree and I took out my Pixel and waited for a squirrel to show up. I got tired of waiting so I just snapped a shot anyway to see how well the HDR was working. Then I took a shot with my Fuji bridge camera without HDR. Here is the results:

Mighty stable, Tom -- that actually was handheld? Wow!
Larry - Google is finally offering an explanation of how their anti-shake systems work. It is really tough to read because it is very technical. So if your head starts to explode while reading it just scroll on down to the motorcycle footage to blow your mind.

Wow! Thanks for the link, Tom. Their explanation makes sense, and covers some aspects of motion/blur I'd never thought/heard of. This means they have a LOT of computing power in there just for the camera. And those last two videos (motorcycle and sand dunes) are incredible.

Now if they'd add 28mm-250mm (35mm equivalent) zoom (or better) and manual adjustments, it'd be the closest thing to a perfect camera (except for viewfinder--I still need one of those, too) I could imagine. But it'd be super for my bicycle. I always get some bounce (not as bad as the mc vid, though) when a camera is mounted on the handlebars. But expensive...

Expensive but the good news is new technology always filters down and becomes cheaper. I remember my first VCR costs $1200 wholesale in the mid seventies. 4K TVs are now on sale for under $400 for a 55 inch set.

This camera is super in low light. No noise, no blur.  :))

Nice shot, Tom. You captured that fog mighty well.

Larry

It occurs to me, too late: I should have said, "Your picture is all fogged up, can't see much past the shore."  ::)

I love the new portrait mode. It works very well. I think Tarzan is looking for some attention. ::)

This is a great time to be shopping for a phone, there are many great ones available besides the Pixel. The iPhone X, LG V30, Samsung Note and S8 and a few others. You really can't go wrong, they are all equipped with excellent cameras right about the same level as mine. I bought the Pixel because I am a dedicated Googleaholic and because I wanted to use Google's Project Fi. If you don't know about Fi then read thisother thread of mine:

I was looking into fi when it first came out, but was fairly limited in coverage, and only the Nexus phones were being offered. I decided to wait a while.
Now may be the time re-think it. I like the data policy they are discussing, though I can run 30-40 GB a month, right now. On the other hand, over 30 is costing me a bit, and I need to re-think my whole data usage.

With that much data Fi won't work for you. That would be $300 to $400 per month. Now they have the best coverage in the country. As time marches on more companies will be building Fi into their phones. I anticipate the day all carriers use all networks. But that is five to ten years down the line.

By the time we actually hit the road, now, We may not need all the Data. Most of it is for work. And I have been testing my NetGear WiFi extender connecting to wifi at places like starbucks and others that still offer free wifi. It works fairly well.
We'll see after the FCC guy finishes his shenanigans, though, just what we end up with.

Well the nice thing about Google is that it is easy to take it for a test drive and use it for only one month. No contracts to sign. Very user friendly web site. And if you do sign up don't forget to use my code and we both save $20. Fi comes with a bunch of free Wifi too.

You're right Lars, nothing's certain with the net neutrality gone. I'm interested to see what happens in the next few years too. I bet nothing good for the end consumer.

Android Headlines web site just voted the Pixel 2 as the Best Android Smartphone of 2017. Actually that would make it the best smartphone of 2017 period.
