Yahoo… Android 4.4 KitKat users rejoice. You can enjoy the latest Google Camera on your Android phone and tablet. What are the new features? Lens Blur mode for SLR-like photos with shallow depth of field is the one that interest me the most. You do have Photo Spheres for immersive 360ยบ views and Panorama mode with high resolution too. Photos took by Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) will never be the same with Lens Blur mode.
