Software Update Brings Improved Photo Capability to Google Glass

It remains unknown just how popular Google Glass will be when it’s available to the masses, but for the select group of individuals who are lucky enough to sport a pair today, the on board camera just got a bit better.

It’s all thanks to the monthly software updates Google has committed to rolling out to Glass sets. This month’s update promises to improve brightness and sharpness for pictures in low-light situations. It also prompts the glasses to automatically capture HDR (high-dynamic-range) images in bright scenes.

Additionally, Google’s software update now prompts the user to add a caption, which can be done by tapping the headset and speaking.

As far as improved images go, Google says it works by “[capturing] a rapid sequence of shots behind the scenes every time you press the camera button which, when combined, gives you a better picture than what you would get with a single shot.”

Google’s been kind enough to upload a series of before-and-after images of the same scenes with and without the software update installed. The differences are clearly noticeable. In the images posted here, the left frame features pre-update photos and the right frame post-update.

You can get more info on the update, as well as view the before-and-after shots at full resolution, on Project Glass’ Google Plus page.
