Google Camera is one of the best camera applications for any Android phone. Thanks to Google’s superior algorithms and software making ability, Google Camera has turned into the go-to app for all power users. Each new version of the app introduces a number of new features that pave the standard for other OEMs. Night Sight and Astrophotography are two popular examples that Google Camera pioneered, and now every other company includes the same set of options on their own devices.
The release of Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a saw the release of a new version of the Google Camera app. Both phones come with Google Camera 8.0, which is currently the latest version. And now you can download the official Google Camera 8.0 APK file from the download link below.
What is new on Google Camera 8.0
Google introduced a number of new features into the app, such as Night Sight portrait mode, Cinematic Pan, Quick Zoom, improved Super Res Zoom, and a redesigned user interface.
Night Sight Portrait Mode
Night Sight is one of Google’s most important releases. This mode makes it possible to take high quality and detailed photos even in low light situations, thanks to machine learning and some complex algorithms. On the other hand, Portrait Mode is another camera feature that captures photos from the front-facing camera with an added bokeh effect. Night Sight Portrait Mode is a merge of these two features. You can capture photos with a nice bokeh even in low light situations.
Cinematic Pan takes video recording to the next level. This mode gives users the ability to record videos without any shaking, giving them a very professional and cinematic look. This is impressive because to achieve similar results without software tricks you need expensive hardware.
