I tried using the new shooting functions 'cinematic shooting' and 'portrait light' that appeared in Pixel 5



The Pixel 5 focuses on shooting functions, and in addition to shooting with dual lenses of wide-angle lens & ultra-wide-angle lens, new shooting modes ' cinematic shooting ' and ' portrait light ' have been added, so in fact I tried using it for.

In Pixel 5, the dual lens is a wide-angle lens and an ultra-wide-angle lens. When I actually shoot with a wide-angle lens, it looks like this.



With an ultra-wide-angle lens, you can shoot at a magnification of '0.6x'. Looking at the image below, you can see that a wider angle of view can be taken compared to a wide-angle lens.



The maximum zoom magnification is 7x.



Next is 'cinematic shooting'. Cinematic shooting is a mode that officially says, 'You can shoot a movie like a scene from a movie,' which means that you can shoot

pans at the same time as image stabilization. To use it, start the Google Camera app and tap the 'Image Stabilizer icon' that appears on the lower right side of the video recording mode.



If you select 'Cinematic shooting', it's OK. In Simatic shooting, in addition to powerful image stabilization, you can shoot movies at 50% speed and in a muted state.



Below is a movie comparing camera shake correction off and cinematic shooting while shooting while climbing the stairs. Since image stabilization is off for normal shooting, I reduced the speed of what was shot at 60fps to 50% to match cinematic shooting. As a result ... I should have shot at the same timing, but I didn't really feel the cinematic image stabilization effect. There may be another way to use it well. Slow motion mode has also been added in Pixel 5, but since slow motion mode is only 8x slow and 4x slow, it may be that if you want to use 2x slow, use cinematic shooting.

For the last, I will try using a 'portrait light' that allows you to shine light on a photo that has already been taken. Since the portrait light uses machine learning to illuminate the image, the subject is only humans, but since the iCEO doll was judged to be human, we will use the iCEO doll this time. First, open the photo already taken with Google Photos and tap the edit icon.



Tap 'Portrait Light'.



Then, an icon will be displayed on the photo to show where the portrait light will be applied.



By dragging with your finger, you can freely change the location of the portrait light.



The state of actually using it is as follows. When you move the icon, the position of the light source moves and a shadow is formed as if it were actually shining. In the movie, the light intensity is MAX, but the light that hits it does not seem to be so strong.

The 'portrait light' function is only available for Pixel 5 and 5G compatible Pixel 4a at the stage of article creation, but it will be compatible with the previous generation Pixel series by updating. Pixel 5 comes with Google One 's 3-month free benefit, so you can save your photos and movies online.
