Google's Pixel 3 Top Shot feature picks the best photo
No how matter how great your camera is at capturing the finest details, and reproducing the colors, you can still miss the perfect shot if you don't hit the shutter at exactly the right moment.
Top Shot solves that problem.
Let's check it out.
Get together, three, two, one.
Let's get a group photo.
Can't not get that.
One, two, three, cheese.
Pixel three's camera is smart enough to know a good photo when it sees it.
Our machine learning is trained by analyzing millions of images.
So it knows you want to see smiles instead of sneezes.
Photos where everyone in the group has their eyes open and the perfect moment of shock at a surprise party.
Top Shot automatically captures ultimate shots in HDR Plus.
So, your timing wasn't perfect?
It'll suggest a better one.
You can also scroll through the ultranets and save one of those instead.
And then there's Super Res Zoom.
Anyone whose tried to take a photo at a concert knows that phone cameras have terrible zoom.
Instead of shooting a grainy photo, Pixel 3 shoots a burst of photos, each a bit different, taking advantage of the natural tiny movements of your hand.
And you can guess what happens next.
You run the variations through emerging algorithm to create a beautiful, zoomed in shot.
So you can get closer to the details and frame your shot the way you want.
This technique of merging slightly different photos for higher resolution has been used in advanced astronomy research to image the surface of Mars.
Pixel 3 puts this technology into a device you can hold in your hand.
You might have noticed the second camera on the front of the phone.
Let's see what it does.
Are you guys ready to say something?
Here we go, wait.
Move your head towards mine.
My arms are not long enough you guys.
Get in, get in, get in, get in.
Boys, gotta back up, just a
Just a little bit, back up!
Back up, back up.
Stay in the frame, just stay in the frame.
Willow, just stay in the frame.
Guess where I am?
Move your arm, we're not gonna fit.
We're not gonna both fit, just move your arm.
Move your arm, [INAUDIBLE].
Hey Mitch, could you scooch in, I'm trying to take a selfie.
Wait, one sec.
All right, three, two, one, smile!
Pixel users tend to get drafted as the official photographer, including for group selfies, and we want to help them be great at their job.
So we added a second camera on the front that captures a 184% more of the scene than iPhone XS.
Now you can fit everyone in the shot without a selfie stick or unusually long arms like mine.
Just zoom out.
The difference is striking.
You aren't just getting more people in the frame, you're getting more details, more scenery, more of a story.
