Moto X camera interface and controls shown off in screenshots
We have just over a week left before we see the official unveiling of the Motorola Moto X, and of course that means the leaks will just keep getting more and more in-depth. This time around, we're getting to see the camera interface and the various new control methods that Motorola has added to the system; and, it looks like Motorola has done some good stuff with the camera app.

As with the stock camera app, the gallery can be accessed by swiping in from the right, but Motorola has now made it that the camera settings swipe in from the left. We heard about the wrist-twist gesture to launch the camera from anywhere on the phone in the Rogers promo video, and that has also made it into the walkthrough of the camera app, as did the controls for tapping anywhere to take a photo or holding to take multiple shots. Additionally, swiping up or down will control the zoom in the app. 

The overall look of the interface is much more clean, and closer to what you might see with stock Android than what we've seen previously from Motorola. But, based on what we've seen of Android 4.3, and what we know of Android 4.2, Motorola isn't going with stock and has made some slight alterations.

In fact the left menu button, i have seen it somewhere before, both on android and windows phone. For windows phone, it is similar to a rather simple lens/app called Camera360.

Really windows, since when? my HTC One S also has touch anywhere to capture option, turn it on and you can take the picture by touching anywhere on the screen also it has smile detection capture when a person smile the camera snaps the picture automatically. I just want to know, not start a flame war, how long has touch anywhere to snap the picture been a windows thing? Plus the HTC One S is almost 2yrs old

I agree. The standard Android 4.2 feature of "swipe right from lockscreen" is more that enough. A dedicated camera button would be more useful.

Sony seems to be the only manufacturer that has some sense in this regard.

Probably because someone holds the patent.

But I agree that most of people won't use this twist to launch.

i'm not sure i'll like the tap to capture. i like tapping to focus.
everything else seems solid though.

What's the deal with how it focuses now? Does it still allow for spot focusing? How am I supposed to hold a focal point and move the camera around to get better exposure on a particular scene like I could with a camera button?
