When it comes to camera applications, the stock Google Camera is hard to beat. It comes pre-installed on all Pixel devices. More than often, Google includes some handy features which take capturing pictures with a mobile phone to the next level. While Google Camera has always been a popular application, its popularity has skyrocketed ever since Night Sight was introduced.
If you do not know what Night Sight is, it is a camera mode which allows you to take bright pictures even in the darkest environments. This is possible thanks to Google’s advanced software which has some of the most advanced algorithms on the planet. As of now, Google’s Night Sight beats everything else such as Nightscape and HDR+.
The only downside is that Night Sight is exclusive to Pixel devices only. The feature is not activated on other phones that have the Google Camera app. The good news is that developers have been able to port the Google Camera app and enable Night Sight in numerous Android phones.
Developer cstark27 has released a Google Camera app port for the LG G6, G5, V30, V20 and V35. The ported app includes all stock features, as well as Night Sight. The camera app works as expected with no visible bugs. Based on some pictures taken with LG’s stock camera and Google’s Night Sight mode, there is a visible difference between those two. The pictures taken on the LG V30 with Night Sight are more vibrant and more pleasing to the eye.
