    Default camera software

    Any chance that motorola isnt done yet with updating this camera? The low light performance is just horrible.

    Is that even fixable with software enhancements?

    What would be nice is if they would allow you to change the default camera app for twist to start. I know the hardware is good because Camera Zoom FX takes great pictures with it. I personally don't have much confidence that they are going to ever get their own software right.

    I like everything about this phone except the camera. I sold my G2 to get it because I prefer the size, build and I've always liked Motorola, camera is an waste. I just came back from Vegas and the quality is garbage. Compared my pictures with a guy that had an iPhone 5s, not even close.

    Just anecdote on low light indoor shooting. I was trying to get pics of our Christmas tree in low light. The pics were poor contrast/detail or some were even hazy. Then when my kids stood in front of the tree, I got much better shots using the exact same settings. The camera software seems to perform better in that situation when there's a foreground subject for it to focus on. Though I'm sure there's better hardware to be had, but I'm convinced the Moto X could be plenty satisfying for a smartphone camera with the right software improvements.

    It's funny how different people's experiences are. I for one think the low light is pretty good. I have taken shots in a fairly dark room and it didn't even need the flash. Outside it has captured the subtle night pollution in the sky that my eyes hadn't even noticed.

    That's not to say the camera is perfect. Far from it. I often get a haze that shouldn't be there and some daytime shots aren't as sharp as they could be. But after hearing all the complaints I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as bad as I had been led to believe.

    Still I think Motorola has nailed most things. Now they need to work on a better camera for the future.

    If I wanted limits on what I could do with a device, I would have an iPhone!
