Google’s Nexus 4 released from that day on, due to its high price, excellent design and powered by Google’s latest Android 4.2 system attracted world attention, Nexus 4 is out of stock, maybe Google think Nexus 4 so popular. But Halo behind a camera, has severely affected the Nexus 4 user experience.
Believe Nexus 4 people on hand will be very satisfied with the overall performance of the Nexus 4, but beyond that people can’t look straight into the camera, whether it is running a wide variety of large game, watch the video and the latest Android 4.2 the excellent design of the system, all users have a good experience. We know that LG’s shooting has been his short Board, but this weakness is short a little bit wide of the mark, could hold more water, “Nexus 4” barrel only holds little water.
Let us first look at the Nexus of 4 shoot interface, Android 4.2 during the filming of interface design is very good, long press the screen is to bring up the menu settings button, and native joined the HDR feature, but we are familiar with the ISO regulation did not. Click screen is focusing, focusing is complete there will be a green box tips.
Small series of test shot sample and found Nexus 4 shooting algorithm really have problems indoors when shooting macro, has a very bright place, the camera’s ISO will automatically adjust to the very high, there is no need to adjust the high ISO, high ISO but can also affect the quality.
This specimen was shot in indoor light enough environment, but ISO will be automatically raised to 1500, so plenty of light, in fact, there is no need to adjust to such a high ISO, and such a high ISO, shutter speed is actually 1/16s, it should not …
Small series in addition to the review of Nexus 4 outside shot proof, is to rely on some of the more important Nexus of the APP to save us 4. Small series in wants to, since native cannot regulation ISO, so relies on third party photography software, total can adjustable about’s, so small series on in love toss of doctrine constantly installation photography class of APP, constantly to attempts to, in try has n a software zhihou, small series eventually think can help to Nexus 4 of, always also is small series is long zhiqian on has been save down of a photography software: UCam.
But is in need of attention, UCam the UCam is used before the old version, the new version of the UCam is very easy to use, small series of this older version of the UCam, except without the fancy functions, can automatically optimize it again after the picture was taken the picture, such as wiping out the noise and increase the brightness.
ISO settings on the UCam, remember to set to “ISO-HJR”, ISO settings for this mode is a good, small finds if the Nexus 4 ISO, limited to 400, places to dark to light can cause screen Caton situation, serious and even stuck, you must exit to restart.
Way the HJR, Android in some pictures you will also see this option on the application, this option is actually a “reducing hand shake” one of the effects, auto ISO mode has a faster shutter speed, rather than a lower ISO, shutter priority option is the almost. But the strange thing is, small details view by mobile phone after the shooting, ISO 200, and put it on the computer, but can not find ISO … This may be related to software compatibility issues, we don’t need to go into this area, and we only need one result: can we enhance the abilities of Nexus 4?
Next, we’ll look at using the UCam and the original camera film proofs, and then zoom into the picture to compare small series in the right corner add the UCam proofs taken: “UCam” message:
We take a look at figure 200% screenshot: the primary camera on the left, on the right was taken out of the UCam, judging from the screenshot above two proofs, UCam shoot out will be more smooth, surface noise is not too heavy.
Here are more than proofs: Spiderman iPhone 5s case
At night, use without UCam shooting is unbearable into aims, just use the UCam image brightness will be slightly increased. A comparison here is enough.
Because the LG produces the Nexus 4 camera congenitally deficient, so software or an algorithm, no matter how bad the day after tomorrow, save Nexus 4 camera capability. UCam software here only slightly smoothed noise and brighten the screen point to play this role, but because the UCam software does not support spot metering, can only use the default central metering mode, so use the UCam is good or bad, depending on your choice.
Camera issues aside does not actually say, Nexus 4 is definitely a good machine, but LG ruined such a camera, I should not have.
Small software to share out here, you can also try not to try on the Nexus 4, many phones are applicable, but also has the same smooth out noise and brightening effect. Click here to download
