Google Pixel 2 photos/videos display major banding with LED lights around

Google Pixel 2 photos/videos display major banding with LED lights around”

Smartphone buyers who chose to buy the latest flagships from Google, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL took to Google Support forums to report a new problem with the camera.

According to a post on the Pixel User Community (via Pocketnow), user Chazzdjr claims that when taking photos and videos with the Pixel 2 under LED lighting, it has led to unusual banding that appears in the footage. In any case you can check out the problem for yourself in the video above. It is quite an achievement, but unfortunately it seems that users have recently discovered an issue with it, and that is it seems to be unable to handle LED lights. Apparently, LED lights do not emit stable light, instead, they let off a flickering light that isn't detectable by the human eye. If you watch the video above, you can gain an idea of what this looks like. On the right is the first Gen Pixel which was recording a smooth and clear video, and on the left is the Pixel 2, with some flickers and image banding. Having said that, there's a dedicated discussion thread regarding this on the official Pixel forum, and the problem has been escalated to the concerned team.

There's, however, no official word on whether or not the Mountain View, California-based company is taking the problem on priority, and when a fix will be rolled out.
