Google Rolls Out 'Night Sight' Camera Mode for Pixel Smartphones

Google Rolls Out Night Sight Tech to Improve Quality of Low-Light Photos

Google has set the benchmark extremely high on the mobile camera front and it has no plans to slow things down. It takes low-light photography to a whole new level, setting new goals for rivals like Apple, Samsung, and Huawei.

Google announced the new Night Sight camera feature back last month with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Both pictures are taken with the Pixel 3XL. Another redditor who goes by the name of katiemcccc says that all messages from the Pixel 3 were erased (2 years of messages) and they didn't reappear despite restarting the phone, or installing/uninstalling updates and chatting with Google help.

Google says Night Sight constantly adapts to you and the environment, such as measuring your natural hand shake, as well as how much motion is in the scene.

Prior to its official release, I installed and used an unofficial version of Night Sight and was impressed with the results, but I will hold any personal thoughts until I've had a chance to test out the feature myself. And while in some respects, I like the pic taken without Night Sight more because its richer colours and darker exposure make for a moodier final image, when it comes to details and sharpness, the photo taken with Night Sight is clearly superior. Additionally, the first-generation Pixel also lacks optical image stabilization, so it has to use shorter exposures, which can further compromise the quality compared to more recent hardware.

Melania Trump Publicly Calls for National Security Council Official's Firing
The reports of the shake-up has come after a statement was released by Melania Trump's spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions was thought to be on the outs for months before he actually was pushed out.

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.

If you do not own a Google Pixel, you might have luck in getting this feature via sources cited a few days ago in our article about unofficial Night Sight.

Now that the panic is over, what exactly does Night Sight do? It's not super likely this feature will expand to non-Pixel smartphones.
