One was taken with my new Google Pixel 2 phone yesterday and the other in May 2017 when I got my full-frame Sony a7 II.

The Google Pixel 2 was on auto and shot its image at 12.2MP (4032 x 3024), at ISO 301, f/1.8 @ 1/60 seconds with auto white-balance (AWB). Focal length = 27 MM.

The Sony a7 II with the Sony 18-200mm f/3.5 – 6.3 zoom at 24MP (6000 x 4000), at ISO 2000, f/8 @ 1/30 seconds with AWB. Focal length = 65 MM.

Can you tell which is which without looking at the ENLARGED picture at full resolution.

This is SCARY. I had heard that this was the case — but it is sobering to see it first hand.

To I the BIG difference is the focal length and that has to do with the HUGE difference in size of the sensor.

Click to ENLARGE. This is the REAL difference in SENSOR SIZE. The Google Pixel 2 also has a 1/2.3″ sensor like my Nikon P900 — and most other new smartphones.

It was a good Christmas despite the 4″ – 5″ inches of snow in the morning. We expected to lose power. We didn’t. It stopped snowing at 1pm. Light, fluffy snow. Was not hard to shovel. We, working together, had the whole driveway down to the blacktop within 75 minutes. Then we celebrated with a ton of takeout Chinese including duck. It was good.
