I'm using my nexus 5 out of the box. 4.4.2, not rooted. Everything is great except the other night I tried to shoot some photos at a dark party. friends were dancing. I snapped couple of photos and result ? all blurry. Tried changing scene mode but no luck.

Any help on that ?

Note: camera is fine when i'm taking stable object photos at night. Problem is night and movement together.

a certain principle of photography, it needs light to take photos. dark lighting and movement equal blur. proper lighting and movement equal crisp beautiful photos. you need the right lighting for the right shot, period. thats the problem when these amateur blogs review cameras phones, they arent photographers and dont really know how to use a camera properly.

This the solution is to bring a 1000W Spotlight to the party

Lens is clean no problem with that lol. I realized that the problem is with the camera app itself. It is a bit slow at night photos and i admit that it is perfect on stable objects.

I installed Focal beta on my nexus now it takes perfect night ptohos with moving objects. Snaps fast and also you can open your flash before snapping your photo.

Are you using HDR+ mode? If so, try without it.
