Android camera RAW support and native burst-mode confirmed by Google

Google has confirmed they are working to add RAW image file and native burst shot mode support. This isn't yet available for developers to take advantage of, however it does come as a nice follow-up to the report that surfaced earlier in the month on this very subject. The confirmation comes by way of Google spokesperson Gina Scigliano who mentioned that "Android's latest camera HAL (hardware abstraction layer) and framework supports raw and burst-mode photography."

Nexus 5 photography powers featured in new Google video clips

The Nexus 5 does not have the best camera among its peers, even with the presence of Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) technology.

Now the company has come out with three short video ads that show how even a decent quality camera can be fun.

Nexus 5 support detailed by prepaid carrier Ting

Those looking to grab a Nexus 5 with a prepaid carrier can now look towards Ting. Ting is an MVNO style carrier known for their low-priced plans. In this case you pick what you need for minutes, messages and data individually with options for each ranging from XS to XXL. As for the Nexus 5 though, for now that would need to be purchased direct from the Google Play Store.

Nexus G still not happening

The Nexus 5 launched on Halloween, as had been rumored. But while this latest Nexus smartphone has an appropriate name, both in regards to this being the fifth-generation and also because it follows the Nexus 4 -- LG apparently had something else in mind. Details coming from the Korean language Chosun bring talk of the Nexus G.
