Vic Gundotra – Senior Vice President of Engineering at Google – is frequently active on Google+ discussing a wide range of topics, from internet memes to his family.
A couple of days ago, he raised an interesting question about a trip to the mountains and packing his DSLR camera. The question goes something like this:
Still packing for my trip to the mountains. I’ve been struggling with which camera equipment to take. Obviously I’m taking my Android phone and Google Glass. But should I take my DSLR?
In the end, the DSLR won out and was packed for his trip. However, during the conversation Vic made an interesting comment about the camera quality on Nexus Phones.
The camera quality on Nexus phones has long been a hot topic, with some users decidng against a purchase based on the quality. The Nexus 4 saw a substantial increase in quality over the Galaxy Nexus — while this was a step in the right direction, it’s fair to say the Nexus 4 still doesn’t have a comparable quality camera to its peers.
I’m quite interested to see what Google has in store for us with the next Nexus, and seeing comments like this from senior Google officials gives me hope that we could see some big improvements in the future.
How good do you think a phone camera can be? Would you consider leaving your DSLR at home on your next family vacation? LEt us know in the comments!
