Three new Nexus 5 ads focus on the features of the device's camera
A new trio of commercials for the Nexus 5 has surfaced, with each one showing off a feature of the rear-facing snapper on the latest stock Android phone. The different features include HDR+, Photo Sphere and Auto Awesome. Each ad is only 15 seconds long, but that is enough time to show off the capabilities of each feature.

HDR+ takes multiple exposures, and fuses them together into one perfectly exposed picture. PhotoSphere lets you take a 360 degree panoramic shot. And Auto Awesome combines still photographs into a short animated clip.

2013 might be considered by some the year that the smartphone camera grew up, led in no small part by Nokia's high-end Lumia models which were able to take good photographs in low-light conditions. Lytro-style post-production editing is something we will see more of next year.

In the meantime, if you have 45 seconds to spare, check out all three of these new camera-centric commercials for the Nexus 5 by clicking on each video below.

Just proves how awesome Lumia really is.. If you do something special others will follow.. It's the biggest form of flattery for Microkia.

Uh, which Nokia phone has always on HDR (not saying they don't, seeing how that is something new for nvidia's cimera)? Photosphere? Maybe you are referring to auto awesome? Wait, a quick look shows they don't even have a clearly marked HDR mode on the 1020.

The 1020 lets you decide, in Pro Cam, how many shots you want in your HDR photos, and the exposure range. It also outputs in DNG (RAW), which the Nexus doesn't (yet). Oh, and then there is the fact that the 1020 camera doesn't completely suck ass, which the Nexus 5, just like every Nexus before it, excels at.

That's not true. The nexus 5 has a very good camera. Not Lumia good, but really good in comparison to other Android phones.

Its about the overall camera experience that high end Lumia devices offer. And, at this point there's no need to talk about what position Lumia devices stand.. No device is perfect but that's besides the point.. We're not going to bring up the fact that a Ferrari doesn't get the best gas mileage, let's just admit that as far as performance goes it's at the top if the super car pack.

Do lumia phones with good camera cost 350 off contract ?

lumia 1320 - should be greater than or equal to the camera quality of the nexus 5 + its only 339 compared to the 350 of the nexus. Although obv, WP is not as matured or feature-packed as android but youve only asked for good camera and nothing else...

This has nothing to do with cost and that's a stupid argument when we're talking about performance.. There's no need to act like a sore looser and start trying to find reasons to counter things just because it's WP. Just give credit where credit is due. I'm not going to play those petty games with you.. BTW, I never said the other cameras were bad. My point is that we all know that Lumia devices have brought the camera to the spotlight in recent years.. No need for unrelated questions.

Microkia sounds like a bootleg Chinese brand. But the Lumia series do have good cameras.

The only lumia that has a good camera is the 1020, the others are just well meh.
