When the battery dies.

Typically I'm pretty good at making sure my camera batteries are fully charged and I have an extra. Well it finally happened I left the house with a partially dead battery and it died about 20 min into taking pictures.

That being said I had to work with what I had. I shot A lot of photos with my Google Pixel 2 xl. It was great to shoot with and a breeze. Shooting with the Pixel 2 XL lacks the bulk of a DSLR but still packs a punch of a high-end camera. 

A lot of you know that I used to be an iPhone user and little over a month ago the iPhone 8 and iOS, in general, frustrated me. iOS gave me numerous headaches with duplicate photos and documents and crashing. So a lot of apps that gave me issues I replaced with Google apps, like Google calendar, google assistant (for my Google home) Google keyboard. Needless to say, a lot of iOS apps were replaced with Google ones. 

So one day I'm filming my vlog with my iPhone 8 and I recorded about 15 min of a talk and I go check the phone and it stopped about 7 min to tell me I had 15gb of storage left... I wanted to toss the phone so far across the room.  

So I decided that was the last straw and I spent over $500 breaking my contract to get the Google Pixel 2 XL. A month later and it was so worth it.

So let's get back to the main reason for this blog post, the Pixel 2 camera.

Instead of getting techy I'll show you what the Pixel 2 XL can do!

Portrait mode handles a lot of different subjects it still can miss some edges, the far right tulip edge is weirdly smudged.
