Rooter you have already shown you don't understand the problem or even agree with that there is one.
Yes I see there are a few of you. You folks should form a club called #goodenuf for believers that the Android Camera app is good enough, no reason for changes, or even improvements. It's s perfect as it sits. Most of you should be running Kit Kat because that was absolutely the best version of Android there ever was.
I've used the Google Camera app on my Nexus 6 to take 2 dozen pictures that have been used in a our museum's magazine. One was published in the Wall Street Journal as part of a National review of our major summer exhibition. I just send the pictures and I don't care which camera or camera app takes em. Some I take with the museum's high powered Canon, some, when I don't have time to get the camera, I've taken with my Nexus 6.
The Nexus 6 pictures have made our Magazine about as often as the Canon pictures.
If you don't know how to take photos, you blame the camera.
Five different camera apps to do everything that should be standard on camera apps in 2015 excuses excuses the app suck . Software does do wonders to hardware so it's fixable, but until someone get there head out there ass this is as good as it gets for the nexus 6 . I like the pictures this phone takes when on stock ROM but the videos look bad, camera keep refocusing every 10 sec its horrible.
Why is it so hard for google to fix the camera app and the camera quality issues that plague android? I was expecting them to fix it with the 5.1 update , but no luck, if you ask apple fans why they think the iphone is superior , the only thing they have going for them is camera quality. All I'm asking is that they reduce the time it takes to take a HDR+ picture , because without HDR+ the nexus 6 camera is kinda meh, implement an auto HDR+ mode, let us actually use burst mode, timelapse, that's pretty much it.... I don't want to install 3 different camera apps to get features that should be stock ...
Far from a fan boy. Just getting ridiculous with people complaining about a non issue. How is the camera lacking features when it was provided just recently? the google camera is new back in april 2014. So no sure what u mean by poor and lacking features. If thats the case then the google now launcher and is poor and lacking features. Do some research fanboy
