Hi Mi fans!

Quality of photos shot by smartphones are getting better over the years, and the photos are usually good enough during day time. However, I'm sure many of us have trouble with shooting at night due to the low brightness and complex lighting conditions.

Having enough light and exposure is critical if you want to capture nice night photos, and sometimes people try to achieve this by decreasing the shutter speed. However the photos may also be blurred if they’re taken hand-held without a tripod.

Fortunately, many Xiaomi phones provide a better solution for night photos with the steady handheld night photography feature. How does this work? Let me share with you!

Many Xiaomi phones come with a wide aperture that allows more light to the sensor to ensure enough exposure. At the same time, Xiaomi supports excellent algorithm capabilities in camera, such as AI stabilization automatic calibration /steady handheld detection/AI intelligent metering and other camera technologies.

AI intelligent metering

When you press the shutter, the phone will simultaneously take  multiple photos with different exposure schemes, then the AI intelligent metering will detect the light and other information in the scene to change the different exposure for each frame of photos.

AI stabilization automatic calibration

At the same time, with AI stabilization automatic calibration, the phone will intelligently select hundreds  key feature points from each frame of photos for identification and comparison, aligning the frame and correct the shaking problem in the picture. Finally, the phone outputs a perfect picture with details and good exposure.

Are you excited about steady handheld night photography? Do you like taking pictures at night?  Share you thoughts in the comment!
