    I was testing out the Nexus 4 camera/photosphere and I came out with this.

    Granted this for a cellphone was impressive (typically shoot with a 5D Mark II)

    I just wish they had a RAW setting because I was very limited in the editing of the photo. I couldn't really fix things that I would be able to fix because of the lost information.

    I think they're doing a mistake by getting caught up in the megapixel race (I think we're at 13mp right now).

    I mean granted yes this is not a DSLR but it would be nice to shoot RAW for when I'm at say Disneyland or out locally and don't want to lug around the Mark II just to take a few shots.

    Honestly if they gave the ability to shoot RAW and just gave it a good nice glass for the lens it would be more beneficial than more megapixles. 8MP is more than enough for a cellphone camera.

    Then again I understand the reason why they're shooting for the higher MP is just for "show".
