So today, we saw Google’s redesigned camera app appear on the play store and it’s available for all Android devices with Android 4.4 and up.
Here is an overview of the app, coupled with a couple of screenshots.
First of all, we have the viewfinder.
When you first open the app, you are greeted with this UI, that shows you all the different camera modes (from top to bottom): Photo Sphere, Panorama, Focus Mode, Camera, Video.
Photo Sphere and Panorama haven’t changed much, they got a resolution bump but that’s about it.
We got, however, this new “Focus mode” option, which will allow you to get the “bokeh” effect we know from DSLR’s, Nokia Refocus, HTC Ufocus etc.
|The UI you are greeted with when you open the app.|
|Never. Never shoot videos in vertical orientation. Never.|
The settings are pretty minimalist. You can only configure the resolution of various modes, toggle geo-location and white balance controls. We do hope to see more control over the camera in future updates!
You guys can get it here for free!
