Nexus devices have had historically not quite idyllic relationship with the camera. Despite the many promises of Google, you are always found at fault than the competition, even the older than a few months. At the moment it’s too early to tell, but the new Nexus 5 x and Nexus 6 p seem to want to move up a gear, with a cutting-edge sensor.
The sensor, from 12.3 megapixels, is manufactured by Sony, and is characterized by much larger competition -the pixels come to measure 1.55 microns. This greater size allows you tocapture much more light than traditional sensors, thus offering top performance in low light.Is that why Google decided not to include an optical image stabiliser (O.I.S).
Google has released to the press a first gallery of photos taken with the two new devices (which is not specified, but it is irrelevant: software and camera are identical). You see immediately that, while admitting the lack of tinkering or post processing software, the shots were built and by professional photographers, but as first contact we do do it. Certainly in the coming weeks we will see many more.
