Improved Night Sight will be coming to older Pixel devices


Capturing photos when lighting conditions isn’t ideal, but if you happen to own a camera with manual settings, you can improve on this by bumping the ISO, widening the aperture on your lens, increasing the exposure, or slowing down the shutter speed to allow more light to hit your camera’s sensor.

Slowing down the shutter speed has its disadvantages as it takes longer to capture a photo as the exposure time is longer, and this is something that Google is looking to improve upon on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro in an upcoming update that will make the performance of Night Sight mode better.

In the upcoming update, Google will be introducing new algorithms to the original Tensor chipset that debuted on the Pixel 6 series. This is said to shorten the exposure time when capturing photos using Night Sight, which means that users of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be able to grab night time photos quicker, which in turn could also help eliminate blurry photos as a result of having to hold the phone still while the image is being captured.

This is expected to be part of the next Pixel Feature Drop which was originally scheduled for March, but it seems that Google has delayed it slightly so we’ll have to wait a bit longer before it rolls out.
