Google Camera replaces the native camera app in your Google device and brings some new and some improved features for smartphone Cameras.The Camera app is currently available for handsets running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
The highlighting feature of Google Camera is the Lens Blur effect. As Googlers have explained it in their blogpost, this feature creates a shallow depth of field which is a strength of SLR Cameras. As Research at Google explains,
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.
Another impressive feature is Photosphere which was previously available only in Nexus and Google Play version devices.This feature uses photos to construct a 3D image on an environment upto 50MP.
A “100% viewfinder" in another feature which debuts in this app. It ensures a picture without ‘dropped pixels’ and complete visibility of objects that will be present in the photo.
What this app does lack are the expert settings. The White Balance control has been removed from the Google Camera.
