Picture this: your whole family, reunited for the holidays, in front of a crackling fire. A great image...except if you’re a photographer (in which case, you’d be saying “challenging low light, high contrast...argh!!”). Well, not with HDR+ on Nexus 5, alongside a fresh update to the camera rolling out today with Android 4.4.1. 

HDR+ lets you to take great shots in challenging environments, say where there's a large contrast of bright and dark portions of the scene and also in low light situations. When you press the shutter button, instead of taking just one picture, we take a burst of shots in about 1/3 of a second, and apply computational photography to intelligently fuse images together.

All of this gets a boost with an update to Android 4.4.1 rolling out today to Nexus 5. It improves the camera with faster focusing, especially in low light, faster white balancing, for truer colors, the ability to pinch-zoom the viewfinder in HDR+ mode and less shutter lag. 

So don’t let a dim room or a warm fire be the grinch that stole your holiday reunion masterpiece: goo.gl/xBXrqi
