See here, how the Google Camera on Redmi Note 7 Pro captures better images than the stock camera. In this post I am going to show you how you can capture better low light or night photos on Redmi Note 7 Pro using Google Camera.
Google Camera or well known as GCam is known for its Night Sight mode that captures better low light shots on mobile phones. In the next section I am going to compare some of the shots captured by GCam Night Sight mode, HDR+ mode, Astrophotography mode and Stock camera Night mode to see which one photo captures more details and light.
What is the light exposure in the place?
It is important to know the actual lighting of the place where I captured the images on the Redmi Note 7 Pro. So, I have captured a few shots of that too.
Before going into comparing the low light images on Redmi note 7 Pro GCam or Stock cam, below are some images that shows the actual light exposure available at the scene, captured on a DSLR camera. You need to click on the image to enlarge it.

Is the Google Camera Night Sight better on Redmi note 7 Pro or Stock Camera Night Mode?
To find out the exact answer lets analyse few parts of the images captured by the GCam and the stock cam. I have zoomed the stock camera night mode image and the GCam night sight image for comparison.
- The above image is captured by the Redmi note 7 Pro stock camera’s Night mode.
- On the left side of the image is a tree protector which is not at all visible in this image.
- It looks brighter than the normal image but still it failed to capture details. The leaves in the tree and plants look distorted, there are lots of noise in the sky.
- The above image is captured by the Redmi note 7 Pro Google camera’s Night Sight mode.
- On the left side of the image is a tree protector which is clearly visible in this image.
- Overall the image looks brighter than the normal image at the same time the GCam has captured unbelievably more details. The leaves in the tree as well as in the plants look colorful, the sky looks less noisy etc.
I hope the comparison is quite enough to show case the low light image processing capability of Google Camera on Redmi Note 7 Pro. If it is still not enough, I have captured few more shots in different other locations as well. See the below galleries for more.
