We’ve been shooting Google’s two newest smartphones on two continents: from the parks of Madrid to the mountains of Washington state and the streets of Seattle.

The Pixel 8 Pro gains more on the photography side, with a 50MP main camera and 48MP sensors in its ultrawide and tele cameras, it also adds manual control and the ability to capture high-res DNGs. The Pixel 8‘s upgrades are more modest, but its main camera has a faster aperture than its predecessor.

We’ve tried to explore all the different cameras on both phones and have included high-resolution DNGs from the Pixel 8 Pro, which is able to ‘re-mosaic’ the images from its main cameras to deliver 48 and 50MP DNG files.

Explore the galleries, see what you think of the phones’ tone-mapping and note the degree to which the Pixel 8’s ultrawide camera just can’t keep up with the larger sensor in the Pro 8, despite clever combination of multiple images.
