    Me and the wife are not happy at all with the camera. She is coming from an HTC One S and I have a Nexus 4. Having small kids we need a fast camera and our N5's is not cutting it. That and battery life might have me sell them.
    Has anyone tried a different app like Camera Zoom FX too see if it helps?

    I'm very pleased with the camera performance as well. The above was shot with auto-mode without any enhancements.

    I've got a bunch of other camera apps (CameraZoom FX, ShotControl, Vignette, Camera FV 5) and I haven't even tried them yet. The stock camera works awesome, especially in HDR+. If you're still on the fence holding on to your N4, you should get the N5 on order. In every way, it's so much faster/smoother/better. I really loved my N4, but this phone puts it to shame.

    Thanks for the feedback. I am waiting for the kit Kat update before I decide. Still really like my Nexus 4 but always have tech envy.

    Let me know how camera zoom effects work. Would like to know if it speeds up the shutter.

    Downloaded camera zoom fx. Gonna give a try. So far the little I used the stock camera it just take a little to get use to it. I did like the S3 setup better, but I'll play around. I use my camera on my phone a lot so I don't have to carry the point and shoot or the DSLR

    I'm enjoying this phone more by today. May be natural since coming from the S2.

    I was messing around with the camera a bit today. IMO the hardware is pretty decent. The settings interface is a bit too fiddly - I'd prefer a simple icon bar on the side or something. I also find the focusing needs improvement, when it works, the pictures are clean and crisp but I can't always get the focus on the first try. I compared the same macro shot using Camera360 and find the stock app to be sharper but tends toward yellow, while 360 tends toward blue - all personal preference.

    For those of you who have been using this N5 for a few days, do you have any thoughts on that glass/plastic covering the lens? I'm curious about how its holding up to scratches. With the N4 I had a case (Rearth Ringke) that allowed the lens to be protected by being recessed from the surface of the case. With the N5 the lens cover protrudes from the surface of the back, looks like it will be a magnet for scratches.

    Is their a macro setting on the stock camera? I haven't found it.

    The N4 was not really recessed...it's cover was the back glass, which itself could be scratched (mine is). The Nexus 5's is not recessed either, but I have a case on mine, which does recess it.

    No specific macro setting. It is basically always on...tap to focus a close up object and it will go macro on it's own.

    Just for chuckles I tried recording on my Nexus 5 a track from a band I went to see Saturday. Small club, I was standing towards the back and the lighting was very poor (from a recording standpoint). The sound was much better than I would have gotten with my Nexus 4, but obviously the video leaves a bit to be desired. Notice how the Nexus keeps trying to refocus. ...Surf on....
