PBKreviews, a popular YouTube channel known for smartphone reviews, recently provided footage demonstrating the image quality of the Pixel 8 Pro. The YouTuber received high praise for how well the handset maintains image quality at 10x digital zoom, despite only having a 5x telephoto camera.
However, it remains unclear if the Pixel 8 Pro utilizes its telephoto camera for capturing zoomed shots in all lighting conditions. This ambiguity arises due to the pixelated quality observed in the 10x and 30x night shots, suggesting that the device may be cropping in on its 50 MP primary sensor instead.
In addition to its photography capabilities, the Pixel 8 Pro’s videography features were also showcased in the video. The device performs exceptionally well under daylight conditions, capturing smooth and high-quality videos. However, some users reported experiencing stuttering when panning at night.
Furthermore, users may notice lens flares from direct light sources, but this issue appears to be limited to low-light conditions. Overall, the device’s ability to handle videography seems promising, although some minor shortcomings were observed.
