Advanced Photography and Video Recording

Open it right from your lock screen, and fire off a photo instantly. You can also take beautiful panorama pictures--just point and touch the shutter and pan your phone from one side to another. Android immediately stitches together an expansive panorama photo, ready to share.
A full-featured photo editor lets you add filters and effects, adjust color, straighten, reduce red eye, crop, rotate, flip, and even doodle on your favorite photos--right after you take them. Your edits are saved as a copy, so you can always get to the original.
Your photos can upload themselves with Instant Upload, which makes it much easier to share them with family and friends. If you've signed up for Google+, you can enable Instant Upload and share photos with anyone you choose.
Shoot video in Full HD 1080p, and snap still shots while you're at it. Continuous focus, real-time zoom, and time-lapse mode give you the power to shoot stunning videos. When your footage is ready, create your own movie with Movie Studio and upload it to YouTube. When you shoot videos, you can choose from a number of silly faces and other fun effects.
