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...

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

Twist your wrist to launch camera app?!!?! That look like those samsung features that nobody uses...

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.

Im with you on that camera button. I dont know why most oems are ignoring this.

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

Nokia also. Oems that truly cares to phone's camera

Probably because someone holds the patent.
But I agree that most of people won't use this twist to launch.

i would prefer a better quality camera than camera interface gimmik.

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

One of the best camera interfaces ive seen

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?
