The ultra-panoramic astrophotography mode was discarded in 2020, but Google has recovered it for its Pixel 8 Pro.
The Google Pixel 8 Pro has brought back panoramic astrophotography, allowing its users to take photos at 0.5x at night. This function was implemented in the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 of 2020, but was not incorporated in the later models. Fortunately, those who own a Pixel 8 Pro, You will be able to take photos with the wide angle again while astrophotography mode is activated.
Only for the Pixel 8 Pro
Of the latest Pixel models, the only one that can take photos at 0.5x while astrophotography mode is activated is the 8 Pro. The device released this year is capable of this, but not the Pixel 8 or the Pixel Fold. Most likely it is due to your hardware sensorwhich is 48 MP at f/2.0, which allows it to capture more details than the 12 MP at f/2.2, which integrates a Pixel 8.
What the Pixel 8 and other models can do is make photos in astrophotography mode at 1x and 2x. For this reason, they are capable of capturing images at night but not that they cover as much space as on the Pixel 8 Pro. To select this mode on any Pixel, access the camera and choose it.
The Google Pixel 8 Pro is one of the phones with the best camera on the market, specifically the third best for DXOMARK. It stands out for several aspects, but above all for its depth of field and zoom. This allows it to compete head to head against the latest HUAWEI and iPhone models.
Apart from its quality, it also stands out for other functions that allow retouch photos using Artificial Intelligence. One of the most famous is Best Take, which corrects facial expressions in group photos. We must also mention Magic Eraser or Magic Editor, to solve errors in the captures and allow you to create even more original photos.
