Take a gander at the first sample picture from the Google Nexus 5
While the average consumer can't get his or her hands on the Google Nexus 5 yet (heck, no one even know when it will officially be available), there are those who have the actual device in hand, testing it out. Some of the lucky Googlers who are getting to use the phone before the rest of the public, have been taking some photographs and one of them appears below.

EXIF data shows the photo was taken with the Nexus 5

According to the EXIF data, the picture was taken with the Nexus 5 on Saturday. The 8MP rear snapper on the stock Android model will feature an aperture of f/2.4 and HDR. The latest information does say that the phone will come with OIS. And just in case you're the type that likes to shoot "selfies," or employ video chat, there is a 1.3MP front-facing camera on the Nexus 5.

Hard to tell much from a single shot, but there it is below, the first sample picture from the Google Nexus 5 camera.

The photos are decent, but nothing to get excited about now that the 1020 and Z1 have been released.

Well thats not the point here. The real point is that you can get a very decent (hopefully) camera this time with the extremely cheap price tag. One of the major concerns last time was the bad camera, this time you get all the goodies plus the camera (hopefully).

What about the missing OIS? Is OIS MIA on the N5?

Hmmm..scratches head.
Both PA stories, on same page, contradicting info!
Above says OIS is MIA, and fwd facing camera 1.2mp, other story says has OIS and 1.5mp, someone needs to alter their info.
"Unfortunately, the page doesn't give any info on the when questions that we all have about the Nexus 5, but it does reiterate the full specs list that we have seen before. As far as the spec sheet, there isn't much that would surprise us at this point. The page mentions the 4.95-inch 1920x1080 display (445 ppi) with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800, an 8MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, a 1.5MP front shooter, 2GB of RAM, and 16 or 32GB of storage. "

Why f/2.4 Google! Even Iphone 5s comes with f/2.2 for better low light shoot. Colors looks great in the sample photo but photo still not that sharp :/
