Great shots! Perfect example of how intelligently, efficiently, and effectively smartphones like the Pixel can deliver entirely serviceable--if not stunning--images in challenging conditions.

Let's stick to serviceable, until we see stunning.

Sure, you could get there with your A6000---eventually, but that's best left to those with time to burn...and more importantly, the persuasion to do so.

First, the A6000 is 5 years old. Second, the A6000 has intelligence to do some of that, but not in P mode. This post was made in reply to someone who suggested using P mode, but P mode deliberately leaves out any of the "intelligence" that we're talking about here ... it's just fully programmed exposure. There are a couple of intelligent Auto modes on the camera and at least one of them does multi-frame processing.

So before going on about how much better phones are than cameras, we should compare a camera and phone of similar age, and then put the camera in a mode that's designed to do what phones do.

I would enjoy that as well. I contend that the ILCs that are newer aren't much better, and certainly not as good as the phone. That's the ENTIRE POINT of this thread. The phones don't have better hardware, but they are much better at default processing.
