Its tricky use at first.
 
Lens Blur in the new Google Camera app
Posted by Carlos Hernández, Software Engineer

One of the biggest advantages of SLR cameras (http://goo.gl/XeAhti) over camera phones is the ability to achieve shallow depth of field effects (also known as bokeh, http://goo.gl/xHR774), which makes the object of interest "pop" by bringing the foreground into focus and de-emphasizing the background. 

Achieving this optical effect has traditionally required a big lens and aperture, and therefore hasn’t been possible using the camera on your mobile phone or tablet. That all changes with Lens Blur, a new mode in the Google Camera app (http://goo.gl/UpMubk). 

Lens Blur  replaces the need for a large optical system with computer vision algorithms and optimization techniques that are run entirely on the mobile device, simulating a larger lens and aperture in order to creating a 3D model of the world. 

To learn more about the algorithms and optimization that makes Lens Blur  possible, head over to the Google Research Blog, linked below. We hope you have fun with your bokeh experiments!

I'm getting tired of all these #Android  phones with pathetic cameras. Why can't a manufacturer make one that rivals the iPhone. 

This is making me rethink my plans for a new phone. I would lose the functionality I love from  #Android  but I think it would be worth having an amazing camera. 

If the rumors are true and the new #iPhone   is going to have a larger screen I may be jumping ship this year.

You know, I like the Android phone a lot; I've buried touchwiz under a Nova launcher so I don't see it, so that' wall right.  But between the camera disappointment, the heartbleed vulnerability, and my annoyance with my carrier, I'll be shopping around as soon as I see what the iPhone 6 looks like for real.
