Using only the Pixel 2 XL to photograph the Geneva Motor Show

Vlad Savov left his DSLR at home and relied solely on his Pixel for the entire show.

I literally flew in to Geneva with a Google Pixel 2 XL, my laptop, and the hope that my high esteem for Google’s camera wasn’t misguided. After taking more than 2,000 shots, publishing 303 of them (so far), and then collecting compliments rather than complaints about my photos, I can say that this experiment has been a resounding success.

Amazing results.

The Roadhouse

My better half very kindly surprised my on my birthday last week with a brand spanking new Nexus 6P. The camera is great, an in certain circumstances just plain excellent. I love this candid shot I snapped of my daughter waiting for her ‘milk-milk shake-shake’ at The Roadhouse in Fitzroy.

Sony is at the forefront of mobile photography innovation

One year ago I tweeted:

“If you haven’t been paying attention, the consumer camera space is erupting right now. Phone cameras lit a fire under the incumbents.”

That was before Sony released the critically acclaimed RX100 (and it’s follow up, the RX100M2). Sony has been pushing extremely hard in this space, releasing innovative and exciting cameras to consumers, while doing great things with glass and image quality at these reduced sizes.
