A few days ago, Google performed its traditional Pixel Feature Drop, or the introduction of new features for its most significant applications on Pixel phones. We wrote about the overview of news from this June. There is one among them that definitely deserves special attention. Google Camera has got a feature time-lapse astrophotography. As the name suggests, it is a sequential acquisition time-lapse videos in the popular “astro” mode for shooting the night sky.
The novelty appeared in the tool after the update to version 8.2.400 and is available in advanced settings. For obvious reasons, the application warns in this mode that the result can take up a lot of space on the mobile phone. And at the same time it is necessary to take into account that acquisition and storage will take some time. Directly with the news of time-lapse astrophotography, Google Camera notes that if the user wants to take a time-lapse video in addition to a regular night photo, he must have the phone taken at least two and a half minutes.
We believe that the result of such a scan will certainly be very interesting. Similar to the current “astro” mode for night photography, which is one of the best that Google has incorporated into its photo application. There is news at the moment officially available for Pixel phones from version 4, but perhaps we can count on an early unofficial modification for other mobile phones.
How often do you take pictures of the night sky with your mobile phone?
