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
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
