The upgraded Google Camera on the latest Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has actually been lauded by customers, and the revealed Night Sight mode has specifically amazed lots of users. The tech giant detailed the function at its Pixel event in October, but hasn’t rolled it out to Pixel phones yet. However, the APK version is available for Pixel series users to get a taste of what the Night Sight mode brings. It illuminates a low-light shot without making use of flash, while keeping adequate information. Now, a developer has managed to port the Google Camera with Night Sight and HDR+ to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T as well, and the mode seems to work better than the stock cam’s emphasize function Nightscape mode also.
XDA Developer reports that developer Arnova8G2 has actually handled to bring Night Sight mode to the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, and this software application works much better than the default video camera app’s Nightscape mode also. The Nightscape mode is specifically created to help users record low-light shots with improved clarity, less sound, and more accurate colour reproduction along with a much better vibrant range than what was readily available through the default video camera app formerly. However, with the picture contrasts offered by XDA, it seems that the Nightscape mode on the OnePlus 6 underperforms considerably when compared to the Night Sight mode on the OnePlus 6.
To gain in more light throughout low-light conditions, Night Sight takes up to 15 frames with a fairly slow shutter to give you an effective direct exposure of about 5 seconds. This is a better workaround that than keeping the shutter open for 4 or 5 seconds, which would completely blur an image,
In our electronic camera contrast evaluation, we attempted it on the Pixel 2 XL and Pixel 3 XL, and the results were rather remarkable. Depending on the amount of light, it takes about 3 to four seconds to end up capturing all the frames, although this might be improved when the final variation is out. Despite the fact that it’s impossible to stay definitely still for this long when shooting portable, the final shot was sharp and extremely detailed compared to the one taken without Night Sight.
You can download the Google Camera with Night Sight port for the OnePlus 6 here and the OnePlus 6T here.
Similarly, the Razer Phone 2 also produces much better photos with the ported Google Camera app. B-S-G established the Google Camera port for the Xiaomi Mi 8, and it seems to work for the Razer Phone 2 too – XDA Developers reports. You can download the port from here.
This only goes to show that hardware isn’t the only crucial part for mobile photography. Software application enhancements are similarly and maybe more vital, something that Google very well comprehends. For that reason, it focuses on the Camera app improvements, and hasn’t added dual lenses, even on the Pixel 3 series, just to stay up to date with the trend.
