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

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?
