Yup, it’s official, Google is set to roll out an enhanced Camera app that will introduce a new Night Sight mode to all three Pixel smartphones, starting with the Google Pixel 3 (although it’s already unofficially available for download). Sounds great right? You bet. Don’t know what’s so exciting about that? Let me tell you.
A couple of years back, Google churned out the first ever Pixel smartphone which skyrocketed our expectations for the kind of image quality that mobile phone camera ought to be capable of. It goes without saying that Google was well ahead in image quality from then on and they still didn’t stop, as a result we now have this revolutionary Google Pixel Camera app, and we love it.
The app is called Night Sight and it creates sharp, clear and clean photographs in low-light conditions without requiring the use of neither flash nor an attachment to tripod. It is an entirely new camera mode that essentially allows your phone camera to see in the dark. This feature is the result of software upgrade that has resulted in a significant improvement in the performance of smartphone cameras that could only have been provided by new hardware previously.
What Night Sight does is that it smartly adjusts to the prevailing environmental conditions before you have even taken your picture, not after or during. As soon as nighttime, dark conditions or inadequate light are detected, your Google Pixel phone automatically suggests that you use the Night Sight mode, and all you need to activate it is to press the onscreen suggestion that popped up.
If you’ve ever wondered at any time whether you should buy the Google Pixel 3 smartphone or not, this Night Sight Camera app is definitely a great reason to do so as it makes the biggest difference in low-light conditions than any other existing smartphone at the moment.
Night Sight is easy to use and it intelligently takes care of such fine details as whether the camera is still or moving, whether the object to be captured is stationary or not, as well as adjusting to several degrees of illumination, dimness or darkness. In addition, Night Sight calculates the length of each shot as well as the number of exposures that will be required each time on its own. The time the app can use to process each photograph may sometimes take upwards of six seconds.
While this new feature is most associated with the Google Pixel 3 smartphone, the good news is that all users of Google both Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones respectively can also enjoy this updated camera mode. Simply download the latest Pixel camera app version and install on your device. Whenever you are about to take a picture in a dark environment Night Sight will automatically pop up on your screen, and if it doesn’t, no worries, you can activate it by clicking on the “more” button.
