The small camera of this phone has a super power: things that our eyes can not see.
Over the last few weeks, I'm going to fly off from dark places where I use Google's new $ 3, $ 3, night bedroom site. Throw a chain with a lamp. Dark streets are full of red and greens. Midnight after lunch, CitySchool lights up the lights. It can also see you on the edge of an instagram filter.
Night site is a super step forwarding as a smartphone photographer. An example of how our photos turn out to be a superficial fake.
This is correct: Your photos do not look like that. Photography has never been a reality, but new phones are not exactly careful with photographs.
Knight site is just a mode showing one of the dark shots on Google's Paxal phones. But this is all that is: all the manufacturers in the phone tell me how impressive their photos are. Blur made of the iPhone's "Portrait Mode" background and recognizes the facial features to reduce Red Eye. Eyes on self-thick levels, shiny eyes and smooth skin in popular in-country phones. Most recent phones use a technique called HDR so that it merges multiple shots to produce a hyper-toned reality.
When I took a sunset photo recently from 6th to 2014 this year's iPhone XR, I shouted differently – the new iPhone shot seemed like drawing with water jars.
What's happening? For 2.5 billion people use smartphones in democratic photography – takes a great photo for special hardware and user manual.
Now, artificial intelligence and other software advancement are democratizing beauty. Yes, beauty. Photos editing is no longer needed Photoshop capabilities. Now, when you introduce a wide window or smiling face, you have to see the phone cameras and move the tune images into what's the tone algorithm to tap phone cameras.
Your phone has a really high-tech beer goggle. Think about your camera as a reflection of the reality, an i am trying to make me happy. It's fun.
Crossing a photo on a phone is much more than a lens to a sensor. Of course, that hardware is still important and has improved in the last decade.
But more and more, it's software – not the hardware – it makes our photos look better. Mark Levio, a Stanford computer science professor who once studied Google's founder Larry Page and Sergey Brin, said: Now works on camera projects on the night site.
The root of the Laoye work is rooted in the size of a smartphone's size. Phones can not match large lenses (sensors under them) as traditional cameras, so manufacturers have to find clear ways to compensate. Provide technologies that replace the software with optics and combine multiple shots digitally.
It uses new handsets from Apple, Samsung and Huawei, "We are struggling to break off the software and in the IE", Levoy said. This was rescued by Google to explore the making of images in new ways.
"Google was subject to a range of software terms," Nikolas Toucher, marketing vice president in Dixom Image Labs, said. It provides a free benchmark rating for cameras. (One of the most important questions to help with conversions from Apple and Samsung.)
With night site, Google's software is powerful. It takes up to 15 locklot shots and is shining, with eye-stained images and colorful colors. Flashes do not go – already artificially increases the light there.
Anyone who tried a low shot in a traditional camera knows how hard it should not take bloated photos. Before knocking the button, using the night site, it takes time and how long it takes to take the shots and shots on your hands and how much time you need to open the shutter. When you press the shutter, it will still "keep pressing" and shooting up to 6 minutes.
During the next second or two course, the night site splits into a set of short shots and merges the best bits to produce a better one. Finally, the image analyzes the selection of AI and other software, colors and tolls.
Focus and breakfast spilled on both sides of the night. You – your subject – you actually have that pose. But most of my test shots are products. Ports are peeling the skin so that the eyes look strictly. Knight landscapes illuminated the hidden information and filled them as Willi Wanka's chocolate factory.
The problem is: How do we choose tons and colors in the dark about a computer? Give a starlet sky like the evening?
"If we can not see it, we do not know how it will look," he said. "There are so many beauty choices we've created for them, you can make them a different way, perhaps even finally these phones & # 39; I see what I see & # 39; & # 39;
If our phones make colors and lighting to attract us, is that as a photography? Or computer-generated work?
Some scholars are rejecting this argument. "It always happens with a malicious technology," said Levy.
What does he mean "fake", he asks. Photographers have made more changes in Photoshop or Darkroom. In the meantime, we decided to make films for a specific purpose. Not a third of human reminder – if we're not talking about that hobby, it may be an academic concern.
How far will the phones get away from the original? How can thinking thinking work normally help us? What part of computer do we need to edit our computers? I took a photo from the White House (without a night site) and I noticed the algorithms I learned to solve the imperfections that removed the architectural details that were still visible in a shot in the XS of XS.
In DxOMark, the camera is a measurement company, and how to evaluate images when interpreting features for the beauty of question face.
"Sometimes the producers are going a long way off, we usually say that if they do not destroy the information – if you are targeting, camera is considering a device that collects information," said Touchwad.
From another point of view I am Kane Aquulton, I am the founder of the annual iPhone Photography Award. During the past decade, he has examined over a million photographs that were used by the iPhone, which correctly discourage corrections from edits.
The line between digital art and photography is "blurred at some times," Akulun said. Still, he welcomes the technological progress that transforms photography processes and equipment into invisible objects. The attraction of the smartphone photography is accessible to it – a button, you are there. This is an evolution of the AI.
"With the improved technological standards of the images, we are looking for an emotional connection," Akkulan said. "More attention is not technically complete, it's the photos that give insight into the person's experience or experience."
