The Pixel's Night Sight camera mode performs imaging miracles

The Pixel's Night Sight camera mode performs imaging miracles

Google revealed this morning that they were prepared to release this next-gen camera feature for their Pixel 3 family of devices in the coming days, but before then - features.

The time for Night Sight for Google Pixel devices is here, and the release time is imminent. And while Google announced the feature alongside its newest flagship smartphones, Night Sight is actually available for all three generations of the Pixel lineup.

Your Pixel handset will suggest using the Night Sight mode if it detects a low-light situation, and you'll be able to tap the on-screen prompt to jump straight into it.

One UI will be officially coming to the Galaxy S9 and S9+, alongside the Galaxy Note 9 in January 2019. Event their front cameras are the same - an 8-megapixel autofocus sensor with f/1.7 aperture.


Now that the panic is over, what exactly does Night Sight do?

Keep in mind that the viewfinder won't be reflective of Night Sight's actual results when in the mode.

With the launch of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL a year ago, Google showed how it envisions to improve photography using artificial intelligence and machine learning.

"Before you press the shutter button, Night Sight measures your natural hand shake, as well as how much motion is in the scene". Meanwhile, if there is "significant scene motion" or the Pixel is moving, the feature will use "shorter exposures, capturing less light to minimize motion blur".

Night Sight is rolling out now. Google is yet to respond to this text disappearing bug reports alongside a bug affecting Pixel devices where photos captured with the camera aren't being saved.

At the Pixel 3 launch event in NYC, Google showed off what it called "Night Sight", a feature that produced incredible looking photos in a near-absence of light. There is, however, also an APK that you can sideload. It's not super likely this feature will expand to non-Pixel smartphones.
