Google Camera Allows You to Take video, Panorama, Photo Sphere and Lens Blur Shots

Google has released their stock camera app to Google play store, known as Google Camera which includes main features of Google Nexus 5 Camera app. This app is much improved than other camera apps while having 5 different camera modes; Camera, video, Panorama, Photo Sphere and Lens Blur.Screen Shot 2014-06-04 at 02.14.42

Panorama is used for wide range photography. Much simple to use and take pictures of a wide view by following the dots on the screen and the app will do accurate stitching of panorama’s. By using Panorama mode it will become so easy to take a complete picture of a larger object.

Photo Sphere is another feature for 360 degree photography. Using Photo Sphere you can take a complete photo of a hall, all you have to do is move your camera according to dots show on your screen while using Photo Sphere mode.

Another feature is the photo blur which focuses on the main subject of the picture producing depth of field effect. It also allows you to adjust the level of blur. Other features include pinch Zoom in and Zoom out, exposure settings, primary and secondary camera view and resolution. You can turn the location on or off.  The new update has included timer camera option as well. You can choose between 4:3 and 16:9 ratios.

As you produce brilliant photos, they are saved in the gallery and can be viewed simply by sliding your finger to the left. The drawback of the app, is it’s limitation to use external Storage/ SD card. You require 1 gigabyte of memory to use photo blur, panorama and photo sphere. Some features like night setting/sunset setting are still missing in the app.

There is still more to work on overall as Google Camera is very handy. Video result are awesome, but whenever I have used it at night time, I don’t get the desired results. So, I think Google has improved and added more features for Photos and Videos.
