Camera Features:

Thanks to software, Pixel phones are known to pack impressive cameras. The Pixel 6 series has a Motion mode that detects if there is a moving object in the photo such as the wheels of a moving vehicle or bicycle and applies motion blur to the object keeping the subject sharp and in focus.

The cameras are further equipped with features, such as Face Unblur that combines photos from two different cameras to remove blurring of faces when taking pictures of fast-moving subjects like children. Magic Eraser will remove unwanted objects and persons from your photo.

Most important of them all for people of color is Real Tone, a superior image algorithm that authentically replicates the subject’s skin tone.
