Pixel 3 XL: How to Lock the Exposure and the Focus
Google has announced the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL almost exactly a year after their predecessors debuted. The 6.3″ XL model comes with larger displays than the previous generation, a decent look and plenty of power under the hood, but the camera is the actual surprise.
In a world of dual and triple-camera arrays, Google still offers us a single rear-facing camera. Yes, you only get a 12.2MP sensor and the company made no mistake.
I think that Google’s new Pixel 3 XL has the best camera going on a smartphone right now. That’s some serious thing in the Android world, you know! This time, the real story is given by the software.
Working with just one main camera, Google has come up with computational solutions to physical limitations. And this eventually lead precisely to this title of the best camera of the moment.
Lock the Exposure and the Focus
Since we are talking about that, do you know how to Lock the Exposure and the Focus on your device? Locking the Exposure and the Focus is a common trick used by photographers. They generally want to make sure that the camera locks onto the correct exposure and focus for a subject in the frame and keeps that until the photo is taken.
It is recommended when there’s a lot going on that the camera might focus on instead, perhaps things moving elsewhere in the frame. This could happen when trying to surprise your little one at a party, but other kids are still playing in the background. Or maybe you want to capture the perfect shot at the concert, but other people keep on dancing around you and your friends. On the Pixel 3 XL device, when you tap to focus there’s lock icon at the top of the exposure slider. All you must do is to tap this to lock and this nifty trick will do its job.
The Camera app on your Pixel 3 XL phone is so powerful that you cannot stop here. Keep on reading and find out what else it has to offer to its users.
