Xiaomi continues to add new features to MIUI 12 that were not announced at the time of the spring announcement of the new user interface for Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones. In the previous beta version, the AI Shutter function appeared, which we reported on last week, and now, the new beta version brought several new modes for shooting at a slow shutter speed.
Xiaomi MIUI 12 camera gets new shooting modes
Beta participants can choose modes such as Moving Crowd, Light Painting, Starry Sky, Silky Water, Star Trails and Neon Trails. They will allow you to take spectacular shots with different scenarios. The first users claim that the results are very interesting.
Since the phone must be motionless when shooting at high shutter speed to get a good result, the need to use a tripod is also mentioned in the description of the modes. At this stage, we do not know on which Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco smartphones these modes will work. In the beta version, they are available, in particular, on the Poco F2 Pro smartphone. This smartphone comes also under the Redmi K30 Pro moniker.
The updated camera application has become one of the few MIUI 12 applications that have received the most new features. The Magic Clone feature, gestures for accessing additional options, the AI Shutter function and other features are now available in this application.
MIUI Camera to soon offer the AI Shutter feature
According to XDA-Developers’ report, a user on Telegram spotted a new feature Xiaomi is working dubbed “AI Shutter” for the MIUI Camera app. Apparently, the feature’s implementation follows Google’s Top Shot Feature on Pixel smartphones. The string mentioning this feature is present in the latest MIUI Camera app. The feature is available in the latest MIUI 12 beta build. According to the report, the app will recommend the best shot from the series of pictures taken while tapping and holding the shutter button. Unfortunately, the “AI Shutter” feature is not live on any Xiaomi or Redmi smartphone right now. The company is likely to bring this feature to certain devices in the coming days in their respective weekly builds.
It’s interesting to see Xiaomi putting some effort in making the MIUI Camera App even more attractive. The app has the potential to be a good camera offering if the company invests more time in it. It’s funny to see that most of Google Camera ports come for specific Redmi and Xiaomi smartphones. The developer’s objective is to improve the quality of these smartphone cameras. We dream of the day that neither Redmi nor Xiaomi phones will need a third-party camera app to have the best possible image quality. How.
