Google update to their Pixel camera phones with & # 39; new feature: Night sights, incredible way & # 39; night vision, allowing you to take pictures with almost no light, no flash or tripod needed .
The last bet of technological giant raises the bar in terms of computational photography. Night Sights use a combination of & # 39; taken photos in & # 39; very short intervals, & # 39; the shutter speed slower, and then process them by reducing noise, to get a look of the details and quality never seen before.
While photography & # 39; often take pictures & # 39; low light using times & # 39; tripod and long exposure, Google obtains results by taking pictures with the equipment at hand.
Night Sights segments exposure in & # 39; range & # 39; & # 39 photographs taken by, consecutive way, which are then placed in & # 39; single image using the & # 39; artificial intelligence developed by the company. She evolution process used in the HDR + Pixel camera, b & # 39; some updates.
Google promises to b & # 39; this mode can & # 39; take pictures from 3 lux and 0.3 lux. Technically, "lux" is defined as the amount of & # 39; light to reach surface unit & # 39; area, measured in & # 39; lemon per square meter.
And as far as 0.3 lux? The company says it is the level & # 39; lights so scarce, difficult to find keys if they fall on the ground b & # 39; that level & # 39; light.
According to The Verges explains, before taking a picture, the night vision & # 39; Google makes a ton & # 39; multifactor calculations. By & # 39; what the company requires the measurement of movement, the Pixel considers his own movement (or lack thereof), the movement & # 39; objects in the scene and the amount of & # 39; available light exposures to decide how much and how should last. .
Most, Night Sights photos will take up to six seconds and up to 15 frames to capture images. Google set limit & # 39; seconds per exposure if the phone is perfectly still, second or third if held by hand.
This means that you can & # 39; to get six exposures & # 39; second with & # 39; the device on a tripod or shorter exposure to 15 when the phone is kept, all of them eat a final photo.
"Night sights not only takes great pictures in & # 39; low, but it is also fun to use, because it takes pictures in & # 39; situations can hardly see anything," says the technology giant on his blog.
"When the scene is sufficiently dark, icon appears on the screen indicating that you & # 39; get a better picture b & # 39; Night Sights, but not limited to these cases, immediately after the closure of time, or in & # 39; konċerti, or "city sights Night" takes clean pictures (low noise), and makes them more beautiful than reality, it seems magical effect if done properly ", he concludes.
Night Sights is available in the full range of the Pixel phones & # 39; Google, although in the forum & # 39; the XDA developers have managed to install Windows on other devices, to your risk.
