The Realme 3 is a mid-range smartphone with flagship aspirations. It is full of features that are usually found only in flagship smartphones. Like its Nightscape mode.

Let’s take a look at what the Realme Nightscape mode does, and show you how it can be used to take really awesome night shots!


Nightscape Mode

The Nightscape mode was first introduced in the Realme 3, and included in the recently-launched Realme 3 Pro.

It uses artificial intelligence, multi-frame capture and an anti-shake algorithm to produce significantly better low-light photos.

Nightscape Mode In Realme 3

When used in the Realme 3 smartphone, Nightscape delivers these improvements :

  • Increased exposure in dim lighting, allowing for better low-light photography
  • Better control of overexposed areas, bringing out details that would normally be washed out
  • Brightening underexposed areas, allowing details to emerge from the shadows
  • Keep noise under control, even in dark areas

In addition to the above, the higher-end Realme 3 Pro will take multiple frames in the RAW format. This allows it to create Nightscape photos with more detail, greater brightness with lower noise and motion blur.


How To Turn On Nightscape Mode

Here is a short guide on how to turn on Nightscape mode in the Realme 3 smartphone. It should be the same for the Realme 3 Pro.

When To Use Nightscape

Now, as great as Nightscape mode is, there is a reason why Realme did not turn it on by default.

Each Nightscape shot takes between 4 to 7 seconds to complete – multiple shots are taken over 3 seconds, and it takes anywhere from 1 to 4 seconds to process them.

So you need to decide when is a good time to use Nightscape, and when you can skate by without it. After all, the Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro have great cameras with fast, bright lenses.

Not Necessary : With Decent Lighting

Sometimes, an indoor scene may not seem bright enough. But the Realme 3 and Realme 3 Pro have bright, fast lenses – f/1.8 and f/1.7 respectively.

This corridor in The Venetian Las Vegas was not brightly-lit, but there was no need to use Nightscape to create such a great photo.

Worth Trying : When There Is A Mix Of Good And Poor Lighting

There will be times when some parts of a scene are well-lit, while other parts are not. It’s worth using Nightscape to bring out the details in the shadows.

Recommended : When There Is Poor Lighting

The Siegfried and Roy Commemorative Statue is not directly lit at night, although hey, it’s Las Vegas so there’s indirect lighting from across the street!

Still, it is recommended to use Nightscape to bring out details in the shadows, and reduce noise in the dark areas.
