Google appears to have realized that the former scenario is much more likely, and as a result, the company is promoting its Night Sight feature to the main list of camera modes — and moving panoramas an extra tap away.
The change makes all the sense in the world when you consider how much Google has advertised Night Sight and squared it up against the iPhone XS, which lacks a dedicated low-light shooting mode.
Google has never given users the same level of manual white balance control as, say, Samsung, but I’d still prefer to have at least some alternative to trusting the camera’s auto white balance.
Night Sight might have been bested by Huawei, but it’s still a standout feature for the Pixel phones.
But experienced photographers might be disappointed to learn that in that same updated camera app, the ability to adjust white balance has seemingly been removed.
