The quality of photos and videos from the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro cameras is extraordinary. The large main sensor brings light and detail, even in low light.

With Cinematic Blur, you can make videos worthy of Hollywood. With True Tone, all skin tones are reflected beautifully and accurately, now also in Night Vision mode. Sharpen Photo improves your blurry photos, whether they are new or old. And with Assisted Framing, people with low vision can be guided by sounds and vibration technology to take the best selfies.
