Camera On Google Glass Gets An Update, Takes Better Photos 0

If smartphones are killing point-and-shoot cameras, then Google Glass is probably (and arguably) going to take over smartphones one day. Now that Google recently updated the Glass’ camera software, that day could be nearer than expected.

However, that still depends on how popular the wearable device is when it becomes available to the general public.

With the new update, the camera on Google Glass is now capable of taking photos in “rapid sequence of shots,” which are then combined to give its user a better picture than those taken by a single shot. Plus, when taking a picture in low-light scene, the camera detects it and automatically takes a brighter and sharper version. Meanwhile, HDR photos are also automatically taken during bright situations.

But don’t just take my word for it, you’ll have to see the sample gallery that Google put up just for this update.

Captioning your photos on the Glass is now made easier with the tap and speak function. When sharing a photo, the device will notify you if you want to add a caption. If you choose to do so, just tap the touchpad, speak the caption you want to add, and you’re done.

Google Glass users are still few, so getting feedback on the new camera software should not be hard at all.

What do you think of this new camera software on Google Glass?
