Up until now we haven’t had a lot of proof to back up Google’s claims that the 5-megapixel camera on the Galaxy Nexus is really as good as they say it is. The video above was posted by Android software engineer Romain Guy (who also lists “photographer” as one of his occupations) showing some incredible 1080p video shot with the new flagship Google/Samsung smartphone. You may recognize some of the footage, as a shorter version was shown at the Galaxy Nexus launch event, but the poor quality of the event’s live stream certainly didn’t do it justice. Don’t forget to hit 1080p and go fullscreen so you can really appreciate the quality.

Guy explains the video was shot at Rockaway Beach in California, with time-lapse clips courtesy of Dynamic Perception’s Stage Zero Dolly seen in the image below and a little editing in Adobe After Effects CS5. Before signing off, Guy teases how great the footage looks when watching on the device’s “gorgeous 720p screen at 315 dpi”, calling it “amazing”. Enjoy!
