Moto G (2014) 2nd Gen Camera Test and Comparison

In the video I show many different scenarios in which the camera may be used and I compare it directly to the Moto X (2013) and the OnePlus One. It performed very well in most scenes and really passed my expectations for a phone of this price. It’s worst performance was during a macro shot as the camera doesn’t allow for getting very close. In most situations, its colors were more accurate than the Moto X and overall they looked great. It takes low res 720p videos which are decent in day time and surprisingly clear in low light, even out performing the OnePlus One while in low lit situations. It also does a great job when recording very loud audio keeping away any saturation and holding the volume at an acceptable level.

Watch the video to see for yourself whether or not it is worth it and look under the video for the raw images:

My New Video Intro

I have finally created an intro for my videos as I will be pushing my YouTube channel alongside my blog. I have embedded it below as it is my first step into the video universe. I used CyberLink PowerDirector 12 to create it as it offers great 4k editing that is GPU accelerated. I was surprised that I was able to edit and render 4k videos so easily using this program.
