Google's Night Sight launches for all Pixel phones
Google camera with night sight mode is officially out and available for pixels (1st to 3rd gen). The sideload apk versions had issues with stability from what some of my friends using the first gen pixel told me. Hope official version fixed that
At the Pixel 3 launch event in NYC, Google showed off what it called "Night Sight," a feature that produced incredible looking photos in a near-absence of light. Modified versions of the Google Camera app gave everyone willing to sideload them an early taste at the feature, but the wait is now over. And according to Google, Night Sight is rolling out for all Pixel devices, past and present, in the coming days.
In a Blog post on the subject today — which goes into delightful detail about precisely how Night Sight works — the specifics of compatibility were revealed as well. Although it's rolling out to the 2016 Pixel and Pixel 2 as well as the Pixel 3, aspects of its performance are precisely tuned for the latter, so don't expect quite the same experience on each. The OG Pixel also lacks optical image stabilization, so it has to use shorter exposures, which can further compromise the quality compared to more recent hardware. Still, it's pretty slick to see a two-year-old device picking up new features.
