Google has started to roll out its Night Sight low-light computational photography technology that was the much-awaited feature since its announcement. It basically lets users take awesome pictures at night and is designed to improve the quality of these images. It works great when you are trying to take pictures of objects however it still needs some work to handle moving objects.
The Pixel 3 is all about computational photography and it was quite prevalent in our official review as well. It has a new feature called Super Res Zoom that takes exceptional pictures of zoomed in subjects without using a telephoto lens. Night Sight also uses takes advantage of Google's computational photography algorithm as it captures multiple temporary images and enhances them by blending. It also applies a special filter that tweaks an image's exposure and resolution. Here is an example to give you a better idea:
As you can see, the night sight works exceptionally well with objects and landscapes. It basically lit the entire image with great accuracy without the need of using a flash or artificial light. Night Sight is coming to all Pixel devices and is now rolling out via an OTA update. Having said that, ROM hackers have been able to modify other imaging applications to give a similar effect, however, Google's night sight is probably the best way to use this feature at the moment.
