2016 Pixels are stuck with 'Terminator' video stabilization effect, won't see the Pixel 2's software improvements
The original Pixel and Pixel XL have fantastic camera capabilities. Not only does HDR+ make most still images look great, but both phones include Electronic Image Stabilization to reduce shaky video. Despite being done entirely in software, the result is incredibly-smooth video that looks almost unreal. Unfortunately, this feature has one major flaw - panning. During video recording, tilting your Pixel while keeping it in place resulted in sudden jumps, when the software would realize that you are purposefully changing the angle and not simply shaking the camera.
