Google Pixel 2 with Fused Video Stabilization


Quote:
Video

With a score of 96, the Pixel 2 is the current leader in our video ranking and delivers an impressive video performance, with only a few small flaws. Exposure is good in almost all lighting conditions, with quick transitions between lighting levels. Autofocus is very fast, smooth, and stable — including subject tracking. The Pixel 2 also does an excellent job at balancing detail preservation and noise reduction — among the best we’ve seen.
The original Google Pixel had excellent video stabilization, but this has been improved even further with the new model. In particular, the Pixel 2 video mode delivers a high level of stabilization, with fewer artifacts in both indoor conditions and bright light.

The major weakness of the otherwise excellent EIS video stabilization on the older Pixels is the flickering in the footage, especially in lower light. In bright light it works better than most phones with very stable image but once the light gets low so goes the IQ.

The sample above is only 1080p in split-frame and shot in bright light so we need to see more tests at 4K in different lighting conditions to judge if Google have done better this time around. Too bad the new phones can't shoot in 4K/60p so no matter how much they have improved the overall IQ they can't do anything about the annoying high shutter speed stutters.

It shouldn’t be long before Mark posts his first video from the new Pixel.
