Google Pixel 3’s Night Sight is available now if you install the modded Pixel 3 camera APK for all Pixel smartphones including Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2XL, Pixel 3, and Pixel3 XL. Now, this is a “beta” Night Sight that Google is probably working on, this is not the official Night Sight. Upon trying the Night Sight, it looks very promising. From what I understand, the Night Sight is basically HDR+ Enhanced super powered by taking more than 5 exposures and stitching them together to bring you even brighter photos in low light.
Google has always been on the forefront of this type of camera processing, and Night Sight may prove to be another hit for Google. I have taken multiple shots and they seemed to help get much more out of the camera in low-light and even completely dark situations. While this may not be as good as low-light photos taken with a Sony mirrorless A7Sii, it will definitely maximize the performance of your Pixel smartphone. And of course, there is already modded versions that may allow other Android smartphones to get the feature through modded APK files.
If you look at the photos carefully, the new Night Sight mode is so accurate, it’s even able to distinguish the dust on my old Sony A6300 camera. No, that is not artifact or noise, that’s actually real dust on my smartphone. While the HDR+ Enhanced on the right does a terrific job of taking this photo in complete darkness, Night Sight brings you additional 2 or 3 stops of light without losing detail, in fact gaining more details.
Installation is pretty easy and no root is required, grab the APK file, and install on any Pixel smartphone. Make sure you are running latest Android 9.0 Pie, if you have been updating your phone regularly, you should be good to go.
