Google's new ad for Night Sight shows Santa captured in the dark
Low-light photography remains a battleground for smartphone manufacturers and back in September Apple introduced its answer to Google's Night Sight. Called Night Mode, the feature allows iPhone users to snap viewable photographs snapped in a low-light or dark environment. Apple has made such progress in this area of smartphone photography that many believe it has surpassed Google's low-light capabilities.
Google released a television commercial for Night Sight on the Pixel 3. The point of the ad was that with Night Sight, Pixel users don't need to use a flash in situations where using it could be annoying to the subject of a photo or to innocent bystanders. And this year, Google has a new holiday-themed ad for Night Sight. The title, "Google Pixel 4 Captures Santa with Night Sight," is pretty self-explanatory.Google has promoted Night Sight in the past. Earlier this year,
With David Phelps' "Catching Santa" playing in the background, the commercial shows close to 30 seconds' worth of failed low-light photos taken in an attempt to "catch" Santa delivering presents. And then we see a Pixel 4 user setting the phone's camera on Night Sight and viola! Santa is captured perfectly, illuminated only by Christmas lights.
