The Verge: Google’s Night Sight could change mobile photography

Via The Verge: Google is reportedly developing a camera feature called Night Sight, the next evolution of its computational photography.

The feature, for its Pixel line of phones, combines machine learning, clever algorithms, and up to four seconds of exposure.

The result, according to Vlad Savov of tech site The Verge, is shockingly good low-light images.

Vlad tried it out ahead of its upcoming release and says it makes any Pixel phone that uses it the best low-light camera.

“Night Sight”

It does have some shortcomings as he explains though.

He says if you have small but focused sources of bright light, this night mode will blow out some highlights.

But the fact that night sight can be used without a tripod makes it, according to him, bewildering.

He claims Google is evidently close to releasing the final Night Sight addition to the Pixel camera app.

Vlad believes when it does, it’ll probably change the mobile photography game.
