Google's Incredible Night Sight Mode Was Worth the Wait

  • Google Rolls Out Night Sight Tech to Improve Quality of Low-Light Photos

"Night Sight is exactly what the Pixel 3 needed to really round out its photo toolkit". It drastically improves low-light photos in a way we've never seen before.

And Night Sight does look impressive, adding yet another photographic advantage to the Pixel lineup and further separating the cameras in these handsets from those of the competition. Here's a shot we took on the Pixel 3 versus the iPhone Xs with the new Night Sight feature.

Super Res Zoom is another feature of the Pixel 3 camera.

Also, while I was up there, I chose to see if Night Sight could work in combination with Google's Super Res Zoom feature, and it seems it does.

Starting Friday, November 16th, through November 21st, you'll be able to get up to 50% off a second Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL phone when you buy two. The caption explains how Night Sight in the Google Camera improves daytime photos as well. And the difference couldn't be more apparent.

Night Sight makes it possible to take low-light pictures without having to use flash, or even a tripod for that matter. That might involve finding a friend also looking to upgrade to the Pixel 3 and plotting to share the promotion with them. As the name implies, Night Sight is intended for use at night. Evidently, it's now clear that Google has opted to make the feature available to all Pixel phones, although it's worth noting owners of the original Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones should expect shorter exposures overall, due to that generation's lack of optical image stabilization. The update is rolling out to all Pixel devices as of now, but the Search giant has said that the new feature will work best in the Pixel 3 series. In the meantime, check out some Night Sight photos below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
