A lot of people seem to agree that the camera on Google Pixel phones are generally rather good and now Google is looking to make it even better with a new feature that significantly improves picture quality
Night Sight makes it possible to take low-light pictures without having to use
From what I’ve seen, the results are rather amazing but I can’t say that I’m surprised. Huawei has had a similar feature called ‘Night Mode‘ first in the P20 Pro and P20 that was launched in
The method in which Huawei achieves such impressive enhancements in low-light photography with its Night Mode is similar to what Google is doing with Night Sight. It takes a series of pictures in varying increments of exposure and shutter speeds and then use AI to analyse, combine and fill-in the image with details from the whole set of images it has taken to form one enhanced image.
Google is rolling out the update that includes Night Sight to Pixel phones right now. So you might want to check your camera app update status. After you’ve updated the camera app, you can find the Night Sight mode in the “More” section. Night Sight will also appear when the phone detects that you’re taking pictures in low-light conditions and a pop-up will appear right above the shutter button so you do not have to manually turn them on every time.
Night Sight may be amazing when it comes to taking low-light pictures but it is not magic, so you’ll still have to abide by the normal rules when taking pictures in dark environments. For one, subjects must remain as still as possible when you’re taking the shot. You’ll need to keep your hands steady too before and after the shutter is pressed.
Google will be rolling out the Night Sight feature as an update to the Pixel camera app and it will be available on the latest Pixel 3, last year’s Pixel 2 as well as the OG 2016 Pixel.
