The new and improved Night Sight was first announced and debuted with the Pixel 7 series and as promised, the company is now bringing the latest camera feature set to its older Pixel 6 family. However, as 9to5Google noted, the new zoom bar we saw on the Pixel 7 phones didn’t make it to the Pixel 6.
In any case, the Night Sight improvements are no small feat. It’s now faster as it requires a 50% shorter exposure time. As a result, Night Sight photos have less blur and are noticeably sharper. In addition to the dedicated night mode, Google worked on the HDR with Bracketing to reduce noise.
New Night Sight exposure toggle
When switching to Night Sight, Pixel 6 owners would notice a new toggle that lets them choose between a fast Night Sight or a slower one with more exposure. The range is set between 2 and 6 seconds, depending on the scenario. In well-lit environments, you won’t need the 6-second exposure.
Reportedly, the Google Camera version 8.8 is being widely rolled out, so you can either try updating through Play Store or wait for the automatic update.
