On Pixel 5a decent low light photos, time lapse, and panoramic photos. But it is seriously lacking basic manual features like manual focus, shutter speed, depth of field, etc. Also very poor macro capability, but perhaps that is more of a 5a limitation than an app limitation. Long story short, this is a very featureless camera app that one of the richest corporations has decided to bundle with all their phones, from flagship to basic models. iPhone camera app is far ahead.

Google consistently removes their settings and features, and I'm not sure why. You used to have an option to choose the resolution of your photos, now you have two options only.. used to be able to disable HDR, now it's built in.. I try to take 5 photos outside during a summer day but the HDR processing causes my phone to overheat and I can't disable it. Time to switch apps.

I have not had any issues that others are saying in their previews. Anyone who says the older pixel (1, 2, 3) take better photos has rose tinted goggles on hard. When I took a photo on my 3xl it looked like it was taken from a Nokia flip phone from the 2000's in comparison to my 6 Pro. The only issues I had with the camera were frequent crashes while using it when I was in the Android 13 beta. On the latest version of 12 it works a million times better (go figure).
