A Graffiti Walk with the Nexus 5

Ok, technically the photos below were taken with the LG G2 — but we all know that the same optics will almost certainly make their way into this year’s Nexus phone, right? So really the title of this post is only a bit misleading, RIGHT?

Right, so yesterday I took Howard’s Rogers-branded G2 with me on a stroll through the back alleys of downtown Toronto, to see what the camera could do. I purposefully looked for challenging lighting conditions — saturated colours, bright sunlight and dark shadows, all in the same shot.

There’s also a short video at the end, captured in 1920 x 1080 HD at 60 fps.

It’s all very subjective, and not meant to be a camera test, just some samples of hopefully interesting subject matter to give you an idea of what to expect from the G2’s optics.

Note that the photos are embedded from my Flickr account so that you can view them in their native resolution. If you want you can also compare them to similar shots taken with my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4.

So without further ado, please enjoy these exclusive camera samples from the new Nexus 5. 😉
