The Pixel's Night Sight camera mode performs imaging miracles

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

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. It takes low-light photography to a whole new level, setting new goals for rivals like Apple, Samsung, and Huawei. But when you actually shoot a picture, it's not a simple click and you're done. Today, Google announced via a blog post that, Night Sight is rolling out for all Pixel devices in the coming days.

Night Sight works for selfies too, with optional illumination from the screen itself. Suffice to say, if you take a lot of pics in dimly lit restaurants, the Pixel 3 and Night Sight is probably your ticket to way better food photography. We've also brought it to Pixel 2 and the original Pixel, although on the latter we use shorter exposures because it has no optical image stabilization (OIS).

You will need to hold the phone still, before during and after tapping the shutter key, to allow the phone to pull in as much light as possible - so ask your subjects to keep still for a few seconds for a blur-free shot.

Google's Night Sight feature basically merges multiple frames for brighter and details-rich photos. It uses this information to process how to capture the photo, adjusting exposure and burst photography on the fly. Taking selfies and group selfies (thanks to the ultra-wide lens) in a really dark area can not get better.

Night Sight is exactly what the Pixel 3 needed to really round out its photo toolkit. Moreover, Google also shared how Night Sight works which, in a nutshell, works using AI to understand the surroundings at the night and adding light as well as balancing the colours accordingly. Alternately, if the camera detects a low light scene, it will prompt to turn on the Night Sight feature. Though Google may end up having to play a game of cat & mouse, as ROM hackers have been able to modify imaging applications to get it working on third-party phones as well. It's not super likely this feature will expand to non-Pixel smartphones.
