Google Camera Interesting Features


Google camera app contains numbers of features which can be activate in the google camera setting. So, let me tell you about all its feature one by one.

 HDR+ : HDR means High Dynamic Range. Whenever you take a photo on HDR mode, your camera captures 3 photos instead of one. A photo which is of a normal condition. In the second, your camera exposure means taking photographs by increasing the brightness, so that the details of the dark part are found in the details. And in the third, your camera takes photos by reducing exposure, so that you can get the details of the part which is shining too much. And when these photos get attached to each other, then the final result will get very awesome. That’s the magic of HDR+ in google camera apk.


Motion : This google camera mode is quite similar to iOS’ Live Photo. When we enable this google camera feature a short, silent, video clip of relatively low resolution is paired with the original photo.


Video Stabilization : This techniques is developed by combining Optical Image Stabilization and Electronic/Digital image stabilization, OIS reduces the blurry image capture due to the movement of the user while recording any video, While EIS is completely different from it. In this, the problems are solved at the programming level. EIS is quite popular these days because it is light and less expensive and with improvement in algorithms used for stabilization image degradation is minimal.


Smartburst : Smartburst mode is commonly known as continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, You have to just hold down the shutter button. In few second it will continuously capture upto 10 photo and give you one best captured photo as a result.


Image Location : When you enable this feature in google pixel camera, it will get information of location through Gps and the location details will be added to pictures and videos.


 Slow Motion : It has the ability to capture high-speed video, up to 120 frames per second (FPS) at 768 X 512, and on some supported devices, 240 frames per second too.


 Panorama : The panorama mode let you capture the world in avery unique way. After selecting Panorama mode, a screen will be created in your screen and the arrows will also be created all around. Now, by which side of the photo you want to take, keep moving your phone gradually by pressing the shutter button below. The camera will take all the pictures one by one and later adding all the photos together will make a big image which is better than usual.


 Photo Sphere : Photo sphere is an panoramic image which can be taken through google camera app. This feature lets you take 360-degree images of anything around you, and even share it on Google Maps.


 Portrait : Portrait mode is a trending DSLR camera feature which allows you to capture image with blur background. This mode is also known as Bokeh Mode. Whenever you take a photo from the phone’s camera, the background and subject (whose photo is being taken) are both in focus. But in Bokeh Mode only the Focused object will be in focus and background will be blurred.


 AR Stickers : This feature was launched in 2017 during Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl launch. R stands for augmented reality. With the help of Ar sticker, photos and videos can be recorded by placing virtual objects on real surfaces through this feature.
