I’ve discarded my mirrorless camera when travelling since the Pixel 5’s photography is so amazing

All of the pics in this post have been uploaded in full resolution, but WordPress tends to compress these to oblivion, so click to see them in their original resolution. I’ve only cropped or re-aligned a few of the shots, but no other color edits or filters have been applied. Everything is as is, from the Pixel 5’s camera. Now imagine what Google Photos could do with a few minor color edits.

A few years ago, the only camera in my pocket/bag was my phone. Starting with the LG G2 and going up to the G3, G4, Galaxy S7 Edge, then Pixel 2 XL, all that I could rely on was my phone and nothing else. I took good photos, great even, but I wanted to learn, improve, and capture better ones, so I bought a mirrorless Olympus cam with several lenses. It accompanied me on my trips to Nepal, the UAE, Spain, and Greece, and I loved using it. But as I was packing for my most recent trip to Belgium, I looked at my Olympus then at my Pixel 5 and made the rash decision to skip the former and rely solely on the latter. I never regretted it.

One of my favorite pics from this Brussels trip. The surreal spaceship effect is *chef kiss*.

Several reasons informed this last-minuted decision. The first two have more to do with practicality than technology. My husband and I have been traveling light, so removing superfluous items lowers our backpacks’ weight and affords us more room to bring back local products from each place we’re visiting. Plus, we both got tired of using multiple cams (phone, 360 cam, mirrorless) and lenses (for the mirrorless) while traveling. It’s just inconvenient to stop and switch lenses when necessary, or to put away then unpack the camera at each interesting location.

From zooming in on small details to grabbing the big picture, all in one device.

Then there’s the fact that the Pixel 5 is the first Google-made phone I’ve owned that can handle Google Maps and Camera being open and used aggressively without draining its battery in less than two hours. Sure, I need a power bank to get me through a whole day, but that was par for the course with previous Pixels, even with me barely using the camera during the day. Here, I use it more and charge it less.

But the real reason why this decision was so easy to make and why I didn’t regret it one single second during my trip is how goddamn good the Pixel 5’s camera is. Every modern smartphone can take good pics these days, that’s not up for debate. But the Pixel line-up can take great pics, reliably, every single time, in any mode, no matter the lighting condition, with an impeccable post-processing that feels like black magic at times.
