Google is taking their sweet time to roll out updates to their camera app and full implementation of their new API. But independent programmers have come up with this little nifty app, which uses the current implementation of the API to allow for DNG capture (a type of RAW).
DNG is a HUGE deal. The amount of detail you get from pictures and the freedom to edit anything that didn't quite turn out right is just amazing. Have a look at some of the sample photos.

It also allows for 4K (sort of, roughly the same resolution, but in 4:3 instead of 16:9) video recording on the Nexus 5 sensor, despite its lack of official support for the resolution.
And burst mode photography in 30FPS (kind of like video, lol).
And 60FPS 1080p video, but that sadly requires modification of libraries, which requires root access and will stop you from accepting OTA updates since the system has been modified (you'll have to do things manually).
And there's obviously manual controls for exposure, focus, bracketing and such.

Give it a look. Especially the low-light shots and highlight recovery, those are seriously impressive.
