Pixel's Night Sight low-light camera feature also enhances shots taken in daylight
Earlier today, we told you that the Night Sight feature that comes out of the box with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, will roll out to the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL over the next day or two. With Night Sight, users can take amazingly visible photos under low light conditions. Interestingly, the feature also enhances photos and videos taken during the daytime.
Google put up a page full of photographs taken with the Night Sight feature, and these amazing samples included a single photograph taken during the daytime. The caption underneath the photo, written by a Googler with the name of Florian Kainz, explains it all. "If you use Night Sight during the day, and are willing to hold still after shutter press, you'll get...denoising and resolution improvements..., as shown in this landscape shot in Marin County, California."According to Google, using Night Sight during the daytime will help remove noise and improve the resolution of a picture.
It appears that Night Sight not only allows Pixels to take great photos under low light conditions, it also helps these models offer improved photographs even when the sun is out. The secret is keeping the phone steady after taking a daylight picture using the Night Sight feature.
