Watch: Xiaomi Mi 11 could deliver drastically improved low-light videoDecember 24, 2020
- The Xiaomi Mi 11 collection will provide an evening mode for video recording.
- This provides a lot brighter footage in low-light circumstances.
The firm has began to tease just a few particulars concerning the new telephones, similar to Wi-Fi 6 capabilities and improved LPDDR5 RAM help. But Xiaomi has additionally simply revealed an evening mode video characteristic on Weibo, displaying off a pattern video clip which you could view beneath.
The video exhibits a scene in what seems to be like close to whole darkness, however activating the night time video mode yields a lot brighter outcomes. We’re undecided if Xiaomi used any studio trickery right here, but when that is the true deal it could do for low-light video what night time mode did for low-light pictures.
It would additionally differ from most different low-light video modes we’ve seen on telephones at present, such because the Galaxy S20 collection and iPhone 12 vary. Both Apple and Samsung provide improved low-light video, however that is principally restricted to timelapses. We’ve additionally seen the likes of Huawei use pixel-binned ultra-wide sensors to deliver higher low-light video.
Xiaomi could have additionally hinted at higher night-time snaps too, with a poster (h/t: MyDrivers) touting the implementation of “computational photography.” Check out the picture beneath.
Of course, computational images is a staple of just about all main manufacturers at present, so this isn’t precisely noteworthy. What is notable, nonetheless, is the usage of a starry sky, doubtlessly hinting at an astrophotography mode for the Mi 11.
This wouldn’t be the primary time we see an astrophotography mode on a Xiaomi telephone although. The Mi 10T Pro and some different gadgets provide a Long Exposure mode that features a Starry Sky choice to take pictures of the night time sky. It’s unclear if the Mi 11 collection will likely be getting the identical mode or a beefed up mode.
Either means, it seems to be such as you’ll need to regulate the upcoming flagships when you worth low-light digicam efficiency in your smartphone. Xiaomi will likely be launching the Mi 11 collection on December 28 in China.
