5 Days with the Nexus 5X – Day 2


Time to see what the 12.3 megapixel shooter on the back of the Nexus 5X can do—and for that we head to Graffiti Alley, in the Fashion District of Toronto.

The 5X is a pleasure to shoot with. Google’s camera app fired up quickly and captured shots without pause. The very handy shortcut of double-pressing the power button gets you to the camera even faster, without the security hole—exiting the camera app without unlocking the phone brings you right back to the lockscreen, every time.

Lighting conditions for this session saw a fair amount of shadow as the early morning sun began its ascent towards noon. Note too that the images here link to Flickr, so you can pore of the details at full resolution if you so desire.








You can compare my entire album with similar graffiti walks done with the OnePlus One and LG G2 (same camera assembly as the 2013 Nexus 5).
