    Thanks!! Sometimes it's the simple things. Amazing how well the app works, huh?

    I only took three photos inside. Nothing special. I saw the AC post about this app and it got me curious. Then I read your post and the other guys and figured I'd give it a shot. It seems faster, but I haven't really tested it. I'm going to trust your experience and use it for a while.

    Does the OIS come into play with third party camera apps? I know hrd+ doesn't.

    I am thinking of snapping pictures while recording to get a quick capture of action shots....

    After shooting over 100 photos today, I am very impressed with VSCO. There are some cases where I wish I had HDR, but for the most part VSCO is now my go to photo app. It's solved the shutter lag issue, and the photos are great. Once again, thank you so much for pointing me in that direction, as photos are ONE of the main features I use with my smartphone as I take well over 1,000 a month for my job. I tried the Lumia 1020 (couldn't stand MS OS), iP5 (wife's), Moto X (brother's), and other different brands my friends have, but the N5 was the phone for me.

    I am looking forward to taking some better photos this Holiday season with the N5. I don't own a fancy camera... I'm cool with the camera quality on my phones.

    I don't think so. I tested a pic using both apps while moving the camera slowly. The stock app with HDR on caught a motion free picture, while VSCO came out blurry. There still doesn't appear to be one app that does it all, but overall I like VSCO the best so far.

    Bear paws! For some, the 5" screen phones are too big to use with one hand, but for me (and likely for you), I need the 5" screen for the larger keyboard.... and it's easier to see the older I get! I'm at the border between XL and XXL gloves, so the N5 is the perfect size for me.

    Congrats on your daughter!!

    Big phones are definitely more user friendly for me. A Note looks like a "normal" size phone in my hand lol. A iPhone feels like a business card in my hand, I need to use 1 pinky to type on my friends lol.

    Thanks and twin daughters actually... This is just "thing 2" I'm holding in the photo, "thing 1" was sleeping on her mother lol....

    Look at the sharpness of this closeup. Indoors low light. This camera is amazing.

    The focus on the camera is starting to annoy me.

    I have no problem with most scenery shots where the items are 20+ feet away.

    But when taking photos of things 5 or so feet away I'll snap some shots (both regular and hdr+) and find out the focus is a bit off. Yes, the focus looks fine when looking at the images on the little N5 screen. But if you zoom if or view on a larger screen, the fuzziness becomes apparent. Then I have to re-take the shot and be a little more careful.
    There is an update to Kit Kat 4.4.1 that is rolling out. This should fix everything on the focus.

    This is from my N5 (without the latest 4.4.1 update). It took me a few tries to get a good one, as would any point and shoot camera for this type of action, but I don't know what more you could want from a cell phone camera. I guess some people can find fault with anything. It was shot in Action Scene Mode, and it's cropped in to about 1/4 of the actual image. This phone and it's camera are awesome.

    Good question. The only time I've experienced blurry photos is due to operator error, by moving the camera before it's finished taking the picture. I'm up to over 300 photos for work, and none are blurry. Some pictures include welding and grinding operations, and the flying sparks were captured clearly.

    But the post brings up a good point. If there is any motion in the shot, I use sport mode. Maybe this is part of it?

    We should repeat that in a new thread because I believed the nonsense about blur (I don't really bother with photos myself, but they were all repeating bs about blur).

    I think the issues are more with close up shots getting the focus set. This pic is a bit farther back so it was able to focus better. The 4.4.1 update appears to fix this.

    Regardless this is a fantastic photo.
