My Nexus 5 is horrendous at focusing in camcorder mode in low light situations. I am often recording my kids at home at night, and I can never get it to focus. It is extremely frurstrating.

I didn't record this video, but I found it and it shows exactly what I am experiencing.

Can anything be done about this? It's making me hate this phone.

Overall the video in low light is horrible. For some reason the blacks become a really light gray and all the colors just go way off. Good thing I never take videos.
