Google to Improve Nexus 5 Camera

Nexus 5 Camera

Google is set to release the latest update for the Nexus 5 in the next couple of days, focusing on tackling the handsets ‘less than reliable’ camera.

The Nexus 5 hit the shelves last month and has quickly become one of the better smartphones on the market besides the likes of the iPhone 5s and Galaxy S4, but it faced several key problems with the 8 megapixel camera which Google has begun to fix.

The update is set to improve on several key areas of the camera, including the autofocus, exposure, white balance and the general speed of the camera.

The camera’s focus will be greatly improved, especially in low light, making it easier and quicker to take multiple shots in shorter space of time, whilst the camera app itself will be launching a full second faster than at launch.

The camera's optical image stabilisation has seen a number of improvements as well, helping avoid tediously slow shutter speeds and helping improve the picture quality across the board.

The camera interface is set to be completely revamped over the coming updates, with this instalment helping make the entire app much more simple and easy to use.

Motion blur will also be reduced and with all of the improvements brought together, the Nexus’ camera is set to show some massive improvements to help it compete with some of the bigger smartphones on the market
