Motorola hints that the camera on the Motorola Moto X will have a fast shutter speed

Either this kid is really fast or today's phones are really slow." As we've been pointing out, the latest battlefield on today's smartphones is the camera. We've just seen Nokia introduce the top smartphone camera with the Nokia Lumia 1020, and Motorola's cameras have hardly been, well, snappy.
But that looks like it will change. The video from Canadian carrier Rogers about the Motorola Moto X that we showed you earlier Sunday revealed how the camera application opens on the device by twisting your hand back and forth. And based on the tweet, it seems that the camera on the Motorola Moto X is going to offer an extremely speedy shutter speed, fast enough to slow down and capture clearly on film a boy with a ton of Pixy Stix coursing through his veins. The most recent leaks call for a 10MP camera on the phone.

"either this kid is really fast, or today's phones are really slow" the photos shown don't match with this statement. those blurs are not from the kid's movements. they could be from the shaky hands that hold the phone/camera, stupid focus, or from a photoshop-induced blur. either the motorolla twitter manager is stupid or they just don't know what they're doing.

if it were shaky hands the entire photo would be blurred. bout the only one that is is the top right one. I doubt anything will match the nokia camera if ever but that doesn't mean others can't improve their own stuff either.

They aren't pictures taken with the Moto X. They're probably showing pictures taken with a 'generic' camera. It's basically a hint saying the Moto X will be able to take pictures of motion with minimal blurring. Did you seriously think these pictures are from the Moto X..?

Stop the press. The least worthwhile expenditure of $500,000,000 dollars worth of advertising will make up for it's also-ran fourth- (or fifth if LG steps up on the Optimus G2) on the top-of-the-line phone selection this fall specs by having a camera that it's HINTED at to have a faster shutter speed? Whoa.

This is all speculation and rumors. Nothing is concrete.

Looks like any indoor pic I try to take of my kids. If the X can deliver a camera that can take quality indoor shots and be as close to stock android that Verizon will ever see again, then I'm looking at my new phone.

Sounds promising if they're talking about actually talking about shutter speed. Increasing shutter speed will require either a larger aperture or faster iso (or a combination of both) to maintain a proper exposure, which bodes well for the camera specs. This would also mean it should have pretty decent low light performance... ...or it could mean that it will have a really, really bright flash....
