The 8MP optically stabilised camera on the Nexus 5 is one of the highlights of the device. This is the first time that Google has actually used a decent camera system on a Nexus device.

According to Brain Klug of AnandTech, the Nexus 5 uses the Sony IMX179 CMOS, with a 1/3,2-inch sensor size. The individual pixels are 1.4um in size, which along with OIS should help greatly in low-light situations.

So, how good is the Nexus 5’s camera? While reviews of the device are not yet out, some camera samples are already available, thanks to Anirudh Dewani of Google.
