Nexus Series Cameras Will Be ‘Insanely’ Great In The Future: Google
Nexus owners already know what it feels like owning one of these amazing devices, and now more good news is set to come their way directly from the company.
Per reports, Google's Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President of Engineering, while discussing about whether he should carry a DSLR for a trip, revealed a bit about how the future of Nexus series cameras will be changing for the better.
Gundotra was basically responding to his own thread on Google+ discussing cameras while on vacation, and a random comment mentioned that he was hopeful that in the future Nexus devices will remove the need to carry heavy cameras while on a trip.
"I hope that someday we will just carry our future Nexus and we won't worry about any heavy camera :) is that possible," the person commented.
To this, Gundotra replied: "We are committed to making Nexus phones insanely great cameras. Just you wait and see."
"It's clear with Google's improvements to the stock Android camera UI since Ice Cream Sandwich -- and the inclusion of Photo Sphere with Jelly Bean -- that a lot of focus is being put on the camera of Nexus devices, but it takes more than just a good UI to take good pictures," Android Central writes.
What it actually takes is the combination of a quality camera sensor and good image processing software on the back end to have great pictures as final products.
While a number of Android manufacturers will actually pay to license image processing software from camera companies (or even borrow from the camera divisions of their own companies), "Google has historically kept things open-source in the camera department, which conflicts with paying for closed-source camera software."
Now it is left to see if Google will actually incorporate the existing Nexus devices with newly improved cameras with enhanced sensors and capabilities to match a highly rated DSLR, or the company will actually go the distance and create a brand new line of Nexus phones that will arrive with these next generation cameras.
"Now no one likes to just "wait and see," but it's our only option at this point. It's comments like this from high-ranking Googlers that make us hopeful for the future of Nexus camera capabilities though," the report adds.
