    I find the Moto G camera performs well in dull light and produces decent close-ups shots. However I'm less sure about its ability to take outdoor landscape shots. I've tried a couple of different apps with different settings but they don't seem to make much of a difference.

    I took some photos of landscapes as a test and the lighting wasn't great so I expected them to be dull, but the colours look a bit odd and there are issues with sharpness. It's odd because it seems far better when taking indoor shots. A photo of my watch, which I took outside when it was sunny, is near-perfect.

    Can anyone recommend an app which could solve the slightly blotchy colours on landscapes and/or enhance the sharpness while taking the photo? I'm guessing it may also be something to do with saturation. I want to avoid having to enhance photos after taking them, preferably. I'm assuming there's nothing wrong with the camera on my phone as it can take good shots (the watch shot being an example). I previously had an HTC Desire X phone and the camera was very similar to the Moto G's, but it didn't have the slightly blotchy colours on landscapes.

    I don't count much for the Moto G's camera but there are a couple apps that can help.
    Snapseed and VSCO Cam are two that are great for post processing.
    And, welcome to the forums! :)

    I found that the App "A better Camera" did the trick for me,
    Shame I can't post images yet to prove it!!!
    Hope this helps!

    One issue I seem to have with the camera is some of the pictures are blurry, even if slightly. I don't think my hands are that shaky, because with the Strat phone, alot of those pictures came out non blurry. I'm thinking I may need to get comfortable with the MG. I've had it about 3 weeks now.
    I'll check out that camera app you mention. Here's the link.

    I like the site and it helps me with taking better & different pictures. I never was a camera type of guy before getting phones with cams.

    There is also an app for viewing and uploading photos to the site.
