How to Install Pixel 4 Camera Features On Any Other Phone
Google Pixel smartphones have always been hyped up as one of the best camera smartphones in the industry today. Google’s latest smartphone flagship, Pixel 4, comes with various useful features and options. They improve the user experience and make the smartphone more appealing.
One of the best features of this smartphone is its camera performance. The Google Pixel line-up is well known for its camera performance and the pre-installed Google Camera app offers excellent image processing. Many Android users have resorted to using ported versions of the Google camera on their smartphones.
Pixel 4 Camera Features
The Google Camera app on Pixel 4 introduces cutting-edge features including features from older versions of the Google Camera. The best thing about this app is that it uses machine learning/artificial intelligence for post-processing after taking a photo. You can, therefore, use a camera app to take better photos. It is a better upgrade compared to the default camera app of your smartphone. The features include:
1. HDR+ Enhanced Mode
One of the best features of the Google Camera is HDR+ Enhance Mode. There are many camera apps that come with the HDR option, but none of them works as good as the Pixel 4 Google Camera. The computational HDR photos that the app takes and combines them using machine learning is the game-changer. It produces the best HDR images from any Android smartphone.
The latest feature from the Google Pixel 4 is the astrophotography mode. This feature allows one to take photos of stars just by using the smartphone. If you’re a fan of astrophotography, this feature will make you fall in love with the Google Camera. It allows one to take sharp and realistic images of the night sky. This feature is courtesy of Google Camera’s capability to offer long exposure options. If that wasn’t enough, it can also take multiple photos and stack them to make a final clearer image using image processing algorithms.
3. Super Zoom
Google’s Pixel has a secondary camera sensor that uses a telephoto lens. This enables Google to have an added Super Zoom feature in the latest version of Google Camera. This feature is better than cropping a photo while post-processing it. Google Camera uses image stacking to capture the Zoom feature. It takes clear images of objects placed far away without any disparities.
4. 264/HEVC Video Format
Most camera apps of Android smartphones use the H.264/AVI video format by default. It allows one to record high-quality videos using the Android device. However, videos recorded in this format usually take a lot of storage space and may use up most of the storage space on your smartphone.
Here’s where the all-new H.264/HEVC Video Format comes to the rescue. This video format allows the user to record high-quality videos without taking too much storage. Being the latest video format for smartphones, it is quite efficient. And as you would imagine, Pixel 4 Google Camera 7.2 allows one to record videos in the H.264/HEVC format.
