With Pixel 3’s motion auto focus you can capture the perfect stable shot on your device. Simply tap on an object so that Pixel 3’s smart camera can automatically track the object while it moves. You will see a white circle encircling the object which indicates that option auto focus has been enabled.
Better Group Selfies
The one person who clicks the group selfie is always the one whose face majorly occupies the entire picture, isn’t it? Yes, no kidding! Pixel 3 understands how important selfies are for us and has introduced a new group selfie feature which zooms out the front cam so that it can capture more of surroundings and objects. So, next time when you’re clicking a selfie or group picture simply tap the magnifying button to bring up the zoom interface. Adjust the zoom slider and set the scene accordingly to click the perfect selfie shot.
As we’re all aware, JPEG is the most commonly known image format. But Pixel 3 also allows you to save your images in their raw format. Raw images can be used for editing purposes, but they definitely take up a lot of storage in comparison to JPEG images. To save images in raw format, launch the Camera app and select More. Now, select Settings > Advanced and then enable RAW capture.
