Compose Yourself And Keep It Steady

Focus. This is a word that grounds the business of imagery.

In addition, the realme 9 Pro+ is equipped with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) and AI Noise Reduction Engine 3.0 to address common factors that could make or break any shot taken in low light.

Capture The Light, Even At Night

So, when capturing a moment, it is imperative to find the best light. Now, as fickle as nature is, the light will not always be on your side, or who knows, you just wanted to turn that slice of life immortal at night. Do not fret because the realme 9 Pro+ is equipped with the ability to embrace the night with the flagship-level Sony IMX 766 camera sensor. Here, there will be no more fussing with edits just to bring a photo come to life even with the least ideal lighting. Even videos are captured in the best of light with its AI Nightscape enhancement algorithm. On the other hand, the realme 9 Pro is just as capable with its 64MP Triple Camera Setup that has been fine-tuned to capture high-resolution snaps in various lighting conditions.

Expose The Streets

Even without technical settings and a tripod at your disposal, you can bring your dull and dreary night shots to life with smart long exposures. With just a touch using the Street Photography 2.0 of the realme 9 Pro, the limits of creativity are challenged with a surprising ease. Here, this pro-level photography feature will help make you take better shots straight from your phone with its inherent Long Exposure Mode. Bokehs and neon portraits aside, you can also make use of the Neon Trail, Light Trail Portrait, Rush Hour settings to enhance your captures with color, clarity, and creativity.
