Videos can be recorded by long-pressing on the shutter button
With Google Camera 7.0, users will be able to quickly record a video by long-pressing the shutter button; the recording continues until the button is “released.” To help those using the Time Lapse feature decide what speed setting to use, new suggestions have been added to the settings. For example, .5x is said to be “good for lively groups,” 10x as “good for walking,” 30x as “good for busy spots,” and 120x as “good for sunsets.” Photography tips are now given out based on the scene being shot in the “Camera coaching” feature. This includes hints to use Night Sight in dark environments and “try Portrait mode” when a face is detected in the viewfinder.
The Pixel 4 XL will ship with 12.2MP Sony IMX363 sensor with an aperture of f/1.7 and a 16MP Sony IMX481 sensor with a telephoto lens. There is a third camera that could be a depth sensor or a spectral sensor. The latter can capture certain things that the human eye cannot see such as X-rays, infrared rays and ultraviolet rays. The Pixel 4 might not include the spectral sensor. If this is true, the new Pixels will be sans an Ultra-wide camera. The front-facing selfie snapper on both models will weigh in at 8MP and could be a wide-angle camera.
The Pixel 4 line should be introduced during the next Made by Google event expected to take place on October 15th. As for the older Pixels, the new version of the Google Camera app could roll out next month.
