Instead of launching the camera by pressing a button, simply twist your wrist twice to prepare the Moto X for a photo. Touching anywhere on the screen will tell the device’s 10-MP camera to snap a shot, rather than having to tap a designated shutter button. The Quick Access Camera feature works even when the display is turned off, and holding your finger down on any area of the screen will fire off rapid shots.
Like the recently announced Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini, the Moto X’s camera app is based entirely on gestures. This means you can swipe to the right to reveal the camera’s settings menu or gallery by swiping rather than hunting for a designated button.
