iPhone 11: How to use the camera in Night Mode

Apple has been inspired by Google this year in terms of smartphone photography with a night mode at least as impressive as the Night Sight of Pixel 3. It’s one of the flagship features of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro that allows for quality photos in low-light conditions and without flash. The point is to keep the maximum detail and faithful colors.

When you use the Camera application on one of Apple’s 11 iPhones, the new Night Mode feature automatically activates when a scene indoors or outdoors is dark enough to be brightened with artificial intelligence that uses the capabilities of the A13 chip. This allows natural colors and reduced noise to be achieved effortlessly, without having to adjust exposure settings.

In photography, the amount of light reaching the camera’s sensor is measured in luminance metric “lux”, and Apple’s Night Mode is designed to operate in environments around 10 lux. For comparison, on a clear day, the outdoor light level will be around 10,000 lux, while an interior glazed space on the same day could reach between 1,000 and 2,000 lux. On a very dark day, it may be around 100 lux, but at dusk and in low-light indoor environments, you’re probably approaching 10 to 15 lux, at which point Night Mode should present itself as an option in Apple’s camera interface.

When Night Mode is suggested but not activated, a Night Mode button appears at the top of the viewfinder and looks like a crescent moon. Simply press the button – it will turn yellow and display the number of seconds of exposure. If the lux is less than 10, the night mode will switch automatically.

When the night mode is activated, a slider appears under the viewfinder that you can leave at the suggested exposure time or use to select one manually. Depending on the brightness level, the night mode automatically simulates a long exposure of 1, 2, or 3 seconds, but you can set this time to up to 10 seconds, depending on the ambient light level and your needs.

When you are ready to take a picture, press the shutter button, hold the phone as still as possible, the camera simulating a long exposure.
