I'm super excited that we just launched a brand new Google Camera app, available to everyone running +Android KitKat. Read on to learn about Photo Sphere, Panorama, and Lens Blur. And check out my gallery of some of my favorites, all shot with my #Nexus5 .

For all you #photosphere  lovers out there, we've raised resolution 6x up to 50 megapixels! These will look AMAZING on +Google Maps and #Views  (http://www.google.com/maps/views).

You can create traditional panoramas in "Panorama" mode, letting you capture towering redwood trees or buildings, or go horizontally to see across the horizon. I'm loving this!

And, we're introducing a brand new feature called "Lens Blur", which we created to give you the ability to create narrow depth-of-field photos like in your DSLR. Since we save the depth map of your image, you can even change the focal point and depth-of-field AFTER shooting. It's been an honor to work on this since the very beginning with the brilliant engineering leads, Carlos Hernandez and +Steve Seitz. #lensblur

Thanks to the amazing engineering team I've worked with here, including +Sascha Haeberling+Scott Ettinger+Bryan Feldman, +Daniel Filip, and David Lee who will soon be sharing more of their photos as well.
