    Well, its finally here. Now how is the camera? What sensor is in there? How large is the sensor? The pixels?

    Well we're not sure yet on it. It's a 20.7 megapixel camera, I think that's all the info we have.. But it looks like all the press at the event are getting their hands on the models now, so expect to see lots of camera samples soon.

    Hopefully not the same P. P. software as the Moto X

    Probably is. The only thing in limbo is OIS. I'm assuming it'll be the Sony sensor. Sony has a system that takes 8mp shots by default and then uses the extra megapixel count to fill in extra details. Works kind of like the Nokia Pureview.

    If you look at the camera on the landing page, I would say it is OIS... the camera is shown moving in and out as well as leveling... think OIS is a good chance.

    Phandroid is the first hands-on I've seen that mentions it:
    As for how capable that 21MP camera is? It’s nice, for sure. Again, we need more time to throughly evaluate its potential, but a few initial shots in a well-lit NYC loft space came out on the higher end of the smartphone spectrum in terms of quality.

    That just looks like the zoom function to me. I don't believe you would necessarily "see" the OIS in action.

    True, an Optical Zoom lens and Optical Image Stabilization are two very different features.

    Yeah I think the camera is just using it's auto focus to move back and forth.

    But, I'm looking at this picture, and is it just me or do you guys see two different camera assemblies?

    http://www.androidcentral.com/sites/...?itok=t1ig9hYy

    The nylon version has a cascade like assemblies while the other is flat. I doubt they used two different cameras, but I wonder if there's a secret here.

    No mention anywhere of OIS. Looking like the camera probably lacks OIS...

    Agreed, but it might have optical zoom based on the videos showing the optics moving in and out.

    You would think if there was some significant improvement in the picture quality or something else with the camera other than just the number of megapixels they would have talked about it this morning. The megapixel number by itself means absolutely nothing. I'm expecting another lackluster camera

    Based on the few hands-on videos I've seen on YouTube, the camera seems to take pictures pretty slowly, which is disappointing coming from a GS3 which takes them pretty much instantly. Haven't seen anything about photo quality though.

    I believe the same issue occurred with Moto X launch (both years) but the software update improved it. If there is a problem with Turbo, and that's a big IF, I'm sure VZW will patch it quickly so they can boast it is the biggest and best Android camera available. Plus 5.0 will allow everything to run faster in this phone.

    If the camera is good, i will buy it. The poor camera quality on motorola phones is why I have never considered them. If this one tests well, the Droid Turbo is my next phone. Especially since Verizon phucked up the Z3... and they didnt bring the Z3 compact to the U.S. My two year Verizon contract with Galaxy S3 ends Nov. 20. I hope this phone is legit... cause I am dying for a new phone..

    Now we just need someone to do a picture comparison to the Maxx.

    I have a Razr Maxx HD. My contract is up in 32 days. The only disappointing thing about it is the inconsistency of the camera. If Moto put another lackluster camera in the Turbo I'll probably keep my Maxx HD.

    There is no reason the Turbo shouldn't have optical image stabilization. My Maxx HD had it built in but the stock camera cannot access it. It's probably built into the Turbo but is also inaccessible. I would think if it was a feature Moto would be trumpeting the fact.

    The Moto Nexus 6 has OIS, the Moto X (2014) does not.

    I did see the lens is an f 2.0 which is good. Maxx HD is 2.4, Moto Nexus 6 is also 2.0, Moto X (2014) is 2.2.

    Yea, they've trumpted nothing about the camera except its bug MP, which means nothing if there isn't stuff to go along with it. That's just a number that gets people who don't have a clue about cameras excited. How can they have all of these other top specs and put a sub par camera in it???

    Here's what the Droid Does page says"

    Droid Turbo’s intelligent imaging uses enhanced image quality algorithms so you get the best shot possible with zero effort. Video capture in 4k means never missing a moment.

    That still doesn't say much. And that last sentence makes absolutely no sense. 4k has nothing to do with being able to get the camera out and record a movie.

    Don't know. They've been doing it for years.

    Me either. I think they would have talked about it if the camera had it. It seems like that's becoming standard these days.

    "Unfortunately the Droid Turbo has to make do without an optical image stabilization system though."
