[Video] Stunning Low Light 4K Footage Taken With The Google Pixel XL

 

Last week Google introduced the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, and only a week later some of the variants of these flagship smartphones have already went out of stock at the Google Play store.

Focusing on its Camera, Google made it clear from day one that the Pixel has the world's best smartphone camera, and to prove how great it is an YouTuber that goes by the nickname Ron8it released a 4K landscape video shot entirely with the Pixel XL. A week later the same guy released a low light test video with the very same smartphone.

It's also worth mentioning that the Pixel set a new record for getting the highest marks that DxOMark has ever doled out, scoring 89 points.

In the video below, we see some incredible shot thanks to YouTube user Ron8it who has also posted some fantastic iPhone 7 and 7 Plus videos. According to him, the Pixel “blows the doors off of the iPhone 7 Plus” when it comes to 4K video — not an easy feat to accomplish.


He says :

This video highlights the Pixel XL's low light capabilities. This was shot in 4K at 30fps and edited in a 24p timeline with no color correction. Every shot is straight from the Pixel. I did use a couple DIY lens adapters to achieve some better range and some faux bokeh. There is some noise in low light but the video does retain its cinematic feel.
As a little refresher of the Pixel's camera, the rear sports a 12.3-megapixel sensor and a f/2.0 aperture. Meanwhile, the front side is loaded with an 8-megapixel shooter with an f/2.4 aperture.

To cover the rest of the details, the Pixel rocks a 5-inch FHD AMOLED touch-screen and a 2,770 mAh battery. On the other hand, the larger sibling Pixel XL dons a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display and a bigger 3,450 cell.

Powering the two is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 paired with 4 GB worth of RAM. Also, they are available in storage configurations of 32 GB and 128 GB.
