Nexus 5 receives much-needed camera update

When Nexus 5 was released, it was critically acclaimed. Though the camera might be a tremendous upgrade from the Nexus 4, it is still not as great as what users want it to be. So Google has the Android “KitKat” 4.4.1 for you.

The camera of the Nexus 5 was said to be buggy in focusing and inconsistent with the results. Enter the new update and it should be fixed, that is according to Dave Burke, Google’s Director of Engineering for Android.

It is said that the update was applied to the following: autofocus, exposure, white balance, speed, and HDR+. The update for the autofocus, exposure and white balance results to a better photo altogether. It makes the shot less blurry too. As for the speed, it deals with the launch time of the camera app. Making sure you get to capture what you want when you want. And finally the HDR+ update indicates the progress of your HDR shot so you are aware of what you phone is doing and also the ability to pinch-zoom in this mode.

The final results of the photos have more contrast and vibrant color which was intentional. These changes is a welcome update but there is still more work to be done.

    Hi! Here’s my humble entry. :)

    Kahit na cheap ang ginamit kong video camera sa sobrang labo (Nokia 5320). I made pa rin para ilabas ko yung idea ko.
