The much-awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is now available, and users will definitely enjoy its new features on the camera and gallery on your device. This is a significant leap from Android, especially with all the revamp designs and enhancement overall. The camera interface is totally amazing, because it is faster and easier to use with an easy access from the lock screen. Thanks to the zero shutter lag, shots are taken immediately and with its new feature on continuous autofocus with automatic face detection. Now you’re on the go for your photos and gallery. There’s a cool feature called Touch-to-focus, where the exposure lock is supported, and with the UI contributes proper digital zoom slider. You will also enjoy the new sweep panorama feature on the camera app.

Aside from the new overhaul camera feature, the gallery app is also highlighted with the Instagram-like design, “hipster filters,” and the built-in photo editor which let’s you edit your photo, crop them and rotate pictures depending on the arbitrary angles. Whatever tweaks or edits you make are automatically saved in a separate file, while keeping the original photo unedited. The images can be sorted by location using the geotagging feature, and by a person when manually tagged. Video is also enhanced with features and has a serious boost on its usage with 1080p capture, continuous autofocus, and you can use the zoom feature while recording. With the new features in video, it is possible to create time lapse videos on your device.

With all enhancements and great features, it’s too early to assume if they are also available to legacy devices or will remain exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but we’ll let you know soon if there is any news.
