Google launched a new photography mode in its camera app some time ago, although it is only available for Pixel phones. This is the Astrophotography mode which was designed to automatically adjust the camera so that they can take pictures of the night sky and that the stars were appreciated there with sufficient clarity.
Now, as it seems from the code inserted in the Google applications, the Astrophotography mode is preparing to go one step further and embed video recording time lapse
Pixel Tips, the key to filtration
The Google Pixel Tricks App has been tasked with revealing that the Google Camera on Pixel phones is getting ready to incorporate an improved Astrophotography mode. This was, aga in, through the source code of the application and in it appeared tracks of a new future mode not yet activated
The index was given the name of a new controller in the code of the application that receives the name of CameraAstrotimelapseAdjustmentController, a variable that indicates the presence of a video mode through photographs time lapse using the app’s Astrophotography mode. Thus, the Google Camera will not only be able to capture photos of the stars but also compose videos with them.
The mode must be activated in Google Camera 8.2.3
Logically, to carry out this process, we will need some equipment, such as a mobile tripod or a stand that immobilizes the phone, and well in advance because the videos time lapse They need us to get off the landline while the photos are being taken.
This code, apparently, will verify that we have the correct version of the Google Camera app. Currently, Google Camera is version 8.2.2 and we will need version 8.2.3 at least. It will be a question of waiting for it to arrive to be able to go to an area without too much light pollution to try these time lapse with the flight of the stars.
