How the camera works is, when it recognise a scene it records - as its name suggests - short video clips at 15fps from which you can later extract high-resolution still images.
Google announced a $249 device called Google Clips, a small, lightweight camera that pairs with its Pixel smartphones, at an event in San Francisco. One device that was left secret though was the Google Clips miniature camera and now we know all about this little device. What do you think of this new product? You can see it similar to Apple's Live Photo. And it gets smarter over time. The photos it can take are done at 15 frames per second and stored onto the 16GB of internal storage it has built-in.
To turn on the camera, you simply twist its shutter.
The fact that it's pocket-sized and wireless and created to let you set it up somewhere and let it just shoot imagery is inevitably leading to comparisons with GoPro.
You also have the ability to share photos from directly within the app.
You can help the camera learn who is important to you so when grandma comes in town, you'll capture the grand entrance. But Google's Juston Payne told me that rather than being meant to let people people capture themselves jumping out of airplanes, it has two other use-case senarios in mind: kids and pets. Plus, it'll alert you when its lens is blocked via intelligent notifications to your phone.
