Google Nexus 6 :: Taking Panorama Shot On Camera

Nov 28, 2015

I'm using Google Camera on my Nexus 6. On my earlier Android and Nokia phones, taking panorama pics were be easy and I used them very frequently.

But with the nexus 6, the camera doesn't take good panorama pics. I've been able to do so successfully only once. At all other times it doesn't take a good pic.

I also get a message "Fish eye is not complete. Are you sure you want to continue?" .

It's asking me to complete images above and below the line that I wanted to take. Panorama doesn't really need those angles. How to utilize the camera app for this correctly.

Google Nexus 5 :: Camera Freezes When Taking HDR+ Photos Only

May 1, 2014

I experienced freezing while shooting HDR+ after the initial update, but after un/reinstalling the Google Camera, it seemed fine for a couple of weeks, but the problem has returned with a vengeance. I cannot shoot anything in HDR+ without the camera and phone freezing.

Regular photos snap fine, but when shooting HDR+, the progress indicated gets to about 2 o'clock and then image totally freezes. After a few seconds, it will close and pop up a crash box offering to report or acknowledge with OK. (I've reported it.) Sometimes it will put up a notification that "HDR+ photos are processing in the background, but if you tap that it takes you into the Photos app and there's nothing there and then the whole phone freezes. Yesterday, I noticed the GPS stuck on (was in a basement) at the same time and had to reboot the phone.

I un/reinstalled the update again yesterday and HDR+ worked for a couple of shots, but today it froze again. This is clearly an unacceptable way to manage the problem. I'm tired of missing pictures because the camera app crashes. I was at a major event last week and had Camera crash on launch for the first time. Fortunately, I was able to quickly reboot before snapping a group shot, but if I hadn't noticed beforehand, I would've had a crowd looking at me while I frantically restarted my phone because of a buggy basic app.

Rooted, stock Nexus 5, Android 4.4.2, faux123 kernel (to try and fight the terrible battery life), no GravityBox things which I've seen mentioned as possible causes.

Google Nexus 5 :: Shut Down When Taking Photos?

Jul 25, 2015

My Nexus 5 will just shutdown when i am taking photos. Esp when the photo is taken in an environment when more processing is needed like low light area. The phone will just switch off. Pressing the power button would not work at all. The only thing that can revive it is a power surge i.e. plugged in a power source. The phone will revive and the picture is not taken at all.

Google Nexus 6 :: Screen Shot / Screen Clipping App

Oct 14, 2015

So one thing I do miss from my Note 4 was the ability to clip screenshots. You could just take out the S Pen and it would take a screenshot and you could crop it and draw on it, etc.

Then you could easily share it and it didn't save it to your device.

Back when I had the LG G2 it had similar functionality, but it was via a built in app that was easily accessed from the Notification tray.

Is there a Play Store app that would offer similar functionality. Ideally I could swipe down on the screen, and access an app. The app then would allow me to crop or draw on the pic and send it.

When I look for them in the Play Store they seem to be more focused on screen recording or something.

Google Nexus 5 :: Why Phone Randomly Turns Off After Taking A Picture

Jul 30, 2015

I've got this issue for about two or three days now. Quite often, when I take a picture with stock Google camera app, my Nexus turns off instantly. Then, when I try to turn it on again, it often turns off again in about one minute and usually it shows almost empty battery (even though before shutdown it was nearly full).

First it has appeared on stock rooted 4.4.4, the phone tried to boot like 10 times, so I erased cache and dalvik via TWRP, but then it didn't detect SIM card and showed unknown baseband. I solved it by flashing bootloader and radio.

Then, I installed a stock 5.1.1, rooted it again (I thought it would solve the issue), but the same problem with camera occurred. So, could it be hardware issue? How to debug it?

Motorola Droid Razr :: Taking A Screen Shot Requires Holding The Power And Volume Down Buttons

Jul 1, 2012

Taking a screen shot requires holding the power and volume down buttons for a few seconds. Couldn't it be done by just pressing them? Also, it should take the screen shot when the buttons are released. As it is now, everytime I force a reboot, I also take a screen shot.

IPhone 6 Plus :: Camera Panorama Continuous Focus

Dec 4, 2014

I just recently got my 6+ and took it to a trip into the mountains with me. I noticed that when making a vertical panorama the iphone doesn't use a continuous focus, which makes the photo look blurry outside of the original focus area. I was under the impression that it would keep focusing until the panorama shot was done. Not that the top of the photo is focused and the bottom is blurry. URL...

Google Nexus 6 :: Why Can't Connect To Camera

Jul 21, 2015

Error occurs when I try to switch to panoramic camera mode. To recover camera after that I clear cache and data and reboot phone, then I can use the front and rear facing cameras in snapshot mode.

The error also occurs running other apps such as my bank's app to take a photo of a check to deposit. In that case I need to reboot phone to stop the continuous error message "Cannot connect to camera".

I've had a previous issue where my Nexus 6 would not connect to the camera at all even in snapshot mode, but after a couple of factory resets and a few days, the camera worked again, but apparently not in panoramic mode.

Since the camera works at least in in snapshot mode, I'm wondering if this is software or if it is a hardware issue. Phone is still under 1 year factory warranty.

Google Nexus 5 :: How Many Megapixels Is Camera

Jun 22, 2014

I've owned the nexus 4 and the nexus 5 now, I've always noticed something funny that happens with people I talk to about my phone (I also work at a phone kiosk).When people ask my opinion and want to know what phone do I personally use I say "The Nexus".. The responses I get are always " the Lexus?? ", "is that better than the galaxy" "is it made by Samsung", " how many megapixels is the camera"

Once a while I get a customer that has a nexus or knows all about it..those customers always have my full respect! But its funny that most people think galaxy is android.

Google Nexus 5 :: Disabled Camera App

Google Nexus 5 :: Camera Shutdown (won't Boot Up)

Feb 19, 2015

My issue is that when I take a photo on my Nexus 5 and it is under around 60% of battery it shuts down, the screen just goes black (phone is complexly off and dead) and the device will not respond to ANY input until it is plugged into a power source, then it will boot up and function normally.

This issue occurred about two weeks after I installed Android 5 however I do not believe it is related due to factory resets, different roms and the issue is still persisting. When the problem started I had recently (a week or so before) moved to Germany, my initial thoughts were that the battery was the problem as when it first happened the phone rebooted and only had 5% left even though the device had around 50% before I took the photo, from then on the battery life was terrible so I purchased a new battery and installed it.

The battery problem was solved (battery life was normal) and when the phone crashed it didn't boot up with any difference to the percentage of battery that was remaining. I am now thinking that something to do with the change in power supplies damaged the device. I think this is unlikely though as Australia (where I am from) and Germany (where I was when the issue started) both run on 240V, the stock power adapter was used just with a euro adapter. I have tried to collect logcats however I can't see any errors before it cuts off (I'm no dev by any means so I could be missing something)...

Last thing is that this issue NEVER occurs when the device is charging so I'm thinking that it is a hardware problem. And of course the phone is out of warranty.

Google Nexus 5 :: Camera Error On Lollipop?

Nov 16, 2014

So I flashed the final build of Lollipop on my Nexus 5, worked great for the first couple of days, now I'm getting a camera error, saying failed to connect to the camera. This only happens with the front-facing camera, and it works fine after a reboot but problem comes back after a day or two.

Back when I had an S3, the same thing would happen, but with the rear camera, I thought it was a hardware issue but now I'm thinking maybe not, since it's happening right after flashing a new OS this time (can't remember if the problem on my S3 was after an OTA, or maybe after rooting and going custom ROM)

Google Nexus 5 :: Camera Stopped Working

Jan 8, 2016

A few days ago, my N5's camera stopped working and none of the usual solutions (reboot, clean data and cache of camera app, even complete wipe and change of ROM) did anything to fix the problem. So I went on ebay, and bought a replacement back camera, fitted it and all was well...for a day!!! It looks like after just one day (and nearly no use at all) the new camera has already stopped working.

Google Nexus 5 :: Camera And Lamp Won't Open

Jan 7, 2016

One day (just like this, I don't remember doing anything special with my phone), the camera completely stopped working, along with the lamp. (The situation right now) :

1. Camera doesn't show up in the application drawers
2. It DOES show up in Settings/Applications, and in "My applications" tab from Google Play, but I cannot open it in any way. When I could, however, it would just crash away.
3. I am also unable to access the stock lamp from anywhere (quick settings, etc.)


1. I was running CM12.1 (nightlies) on my Nexus 5, and I beieve it occured after an update, but I don't believe it really has much to do with it. When I tried to open the camera, it would show me "unable to get a link with the camera" (translation may not be exact) and the system lamp had disappeared

2. I tried to downgrade the phone, to an earlier nightly, but it didn't fix it.

3. I've done every kind of wipes : Data, Dalvik, Cache, even Internal Storage

4. After a full Internal Storage Wipe, I reflashed fresh Marshmallow images from the official website, unrooted, reflashed stock recovery, relocked the bootloader and used the system factory reset again on my phone.

5. After this, the problem changed a little bit. The lamp is still impossible to find, but however this time the camera is too. What I mean is, on CM, it used to show up and crash, now I can't find it in the app drawer ....

Google Nexus 5 :: Android 5.1 - Camera Can't Connect Ever

Mar 16, 2015

It appears this is long-running problem plaguing N5's for some time. I saw sporadical "Can't connect to camera" on 5.0.1 but after update to 5.1 (I flashed the stock image) I literally cannot get the camera working for more than 1 unlock session.

I did have root but I thought it might be a problem so I unrooted and reflashed stock, but no dice. The only other thing I can imagine to do is factory reset, but I have a few security apps that will need some time to be setup again (mostly banking and 2 factor stuff), plus I am not sure if I can restore data w/o Titanium using Google's new 'Restore', so I'm keeping the factory reset as last option.

The only apps which *may* be accessing camera are Trusted face unlock, Whatsapp and Hangouts.

Google Nexus 5 :: Camera And Flash Will Not Work - Lollipop

Oct 20, 2015

I've been having issues with my rear camera on Nexus 5 (my front facing camera works fine). Currently the camera and the flash will not work and basically stopped working some time around the upgrade to lollipop. While on lollipop, I tried uninstalling the app updates, restarting, clearing the cache... Now, I'm currently running 6.0 and still the camera/flash are not working. Tonight I tried wiping the phone and reverting all the way back to kitkat 4.4.4 to see if that would fix it. I tried this multiple times, wiping and reflashing to various versions ranging from 4.4.0 to 6.0 to see if any would somehow fix the camera issue, but none worked.

At this point, I'm back on 6.0 and its still not working. My phone doesn't even show the default camera app in the app drawer. I have to access it through the shortcut on the lock screen and when I do I get the "Can't connect to the camera" message. I'm assuming its a hardware issue at this point. From what I can tell, the flash is not part of the camera module, so if the camera itself broke, it seems like the camera flash should still be recognized and functional (its not in my case, not even an option for the default flashlight on the taskbar pull-down screen). I am wondering if its worth buying an oem replacement camera module and installing it to see if this fixes the issues.
