Android Authority, 30 Dec 2020This is true night mode for video.
Xiaomi proving why it won smartphone Manufacturer of the Y... moreThe Pixel's sensor is too tiny. Nightmode for photos is okay as it uses a very long shutter time for one single photo.
Too many raves on about the picture quality of the pixels, even though it only works with nightmode in even just slightly dark environments - which means that anything that moves is out of the question if there isn't much lighting around. And for low light video it is quite horrible. I get that google don't want a higher MP count, but not upping the sensor size yet just isn't good enough.
That said, this BlinkAI appears to overdo it. Though I can't say for sure as I don't know with certainty how things did appear in those demo scenes.
What I want from a night mode is a perfect rendition of what I'm seeing - with no crushed blacks and with as little, to no, noise as possible, and definitely not lifted lighting compared to what our eyes see. I don't want it to make it look brighter than it is to my eyes.

I wonder why Pixel didn't work on night mode for video?? when they had such a good night mode for photos.
I'm not saying that this is not impressive but by brightening the picture wouldn't we be losing the image we are capturing?
I can see if your in a forest and want to see what's stalking you but if your at any sort of landmark site with lights placed to showcase certain elements will this not downplay that experience?
Anonymous, 30 Dec 2020Wait for the Pro variant. Pretty sure they're adopting Apple 's product segmentation... moreApple's strategy? The regular Mi 10 didn't offer a telephoto either.
The 108mp camera is good enough to provide lossless zoom upto 3x. Apple 12mp camera cannot give you that.
If they followed Apple strategy of 2.5x optical zoom on highest model, they'd be doomed.
Xiaomi believes in giving customers what they want unlike Apple.
J. , 30 Dec 2020IPhone 12 also dont have a telephoto and people like you love itYou're so wrong it's hilarious. I hate iPhones, they are the d bags who start all the worst trends like removing the headphone jack and now even the charger
Looks pretty terrible. What they're doing, is lifting the shadows, at the cost of having highlight blowouts and smudges. I was wondering how they were able to leverage multi-frame HDR in video, and produce such disappointing results. They're basically using Snapdragon 865 technologies in the 888. Which is a serious letdown.
They needed to re-work the video algorithms, and also, probably, used the new Staggered Sensors expected in the 2021 flagships. The present algorithms are just lifting the shadows and blowing out the highlights.
Wish for mi 11 pro flat international version.
Nick Tagataka, 30 Dec 2020To be honest, I still prefer this over iPhone 12's "Let's smudge everything wit... moreLol. Remember the older iPhone photos, like somebody made poor cardboard cutouts of people and put them in time scene. This probably explains it.
Apple is not really a camera company. They should be shipping ProRes and ProRes raw in all the phones, if they want go video phone features. But, this whole remove memory cards and all ports eventually with low throughput on existing ports, means they can't do this. Need a rethink.
I'm in the industry. I imagine this is just the AI nonsense which could be replaced with a pre-made procedural algorithm with a fraction of the energy requirements and chip space. If it's a single frame (you tend to use two or more frames from the video for better results, particularly noise) then most all the information is there already waiting to be cleaned up and lifted, or brought down, into view and rendered in the style prefered. Having said that, a simultaneous dual ISO sensor (both iso on at one time) like the Alexa cinema camera, is prefered to capture more information. I wonder how this works on a Sony single ISO rendered frame sensor. You can extrapolate from those too, but the data can be a bit more weaker (however low level light modes normally are better than the off sample here, on good sensors) But the industry doesn't want to give better quality video for this, so this AI trick is welcome instead of nothing.
blinkAi? i think i've used one of their HDr camera app maybe, around 5 years ago. it takes the RAW image/data and applies the plenty of processing as one would on a photo editing app like Noise reduction, sharpening, saturation, white balance. etc...
in short, it is faster than multi-shot techniques but inferior image quality. as seen in the video, the previously dark parts are now brighter but very soft, softer than the bright parts of the scene
Convinceable, but I'll wait for GSMArena's full review to see its true video quality.
I want to replace my P20 Pro in a few months. Maybe Biden will drop the stupid ban on Huawei otherwise I'll default to something like this.
Anonymous, 30 Dec 2020Again, the same weird feathered grass and fake greens as on all Xiaomi cameras. Either some... moreTo be honest, I still prefer this over iPhone 12's "Let's smudge everything with noise reduction and mess up colours by applying tons of clarity boost" kind of processing, though. Colours are nicely saturated on those samples but at the same time they don't look over the top, though admittedly the exposure adjustment could've been a bit better.
I think their BlinkAI is meant to go blinking, but forgot to open its eyelids therefore you have dream-like images.
It just looks like you are raising your ISO. Hightlights are outblown. Not sure if this is much better.
