Any photos and videos you shoot in Lumia Cinemagraph and Lumia Refocus also appear as Living Images, playing as you browse through them in the camera roll. Use auto mode when you want to simply point and shoot, or switch to full manual control to create the perfect composition. For action photography, smart sequence is a great way to quickly shoot and combine a series of photos. New in this version: - New Name; Lumia Camera - Bug fixes New in with Cyan: - Support for Living Images - Continuous autofocus for faster focusing - Surround sound in video capture - New camera roll with full resolution zoom and inline playback of videos, cinemagraphs, smart sequences and Refocus images. - Lumia Camera integrates with Lumia Creative Studio and Lumia Video Trimmer for editing your photos and videos Living Images and continuous autofocus work on a Lumia 930, 1520 or Icon running the Lumia Cyan software update. To get the latest software update for your phone, go to Settings > Phone Update. Lumia Camera works best on phones running the Lumia Cyan software update, but it also works with limited functionality on phones with the Lumia Amber update or later.

I've already experimented with a few of the other camera apps in just 2 weeks of having my Nokia Lumia 1020, and this is, by far, the very best one. It's amazing! Nokia Camera captures even the tiniest little details in the pictures I take! I love! I would like to see the "Focus Light Only" option returned, though. (Gone since update). That's how I took my most beautiful pictures. Thank you, Nokia! 😊

Beautiful camera but what when the software is worse rather than better. Half features were gone, where is the option to quickly review images, the option of changing faces, focus on light ... Why? A whole year waiting for a new update, but you do me anything about this phone model, for shame. There are still customers who use Lumina 1020 just to remind !

Please share source code for Lumia Camera app 4.x

As this application is no longer planned to be developed and maintained by MS, please share source code, so some developers like me can update code a bit a fix for example exposition and zoom capabilities, reduce capture lag and try to add option to capture only DNG file, without generating JPEG for Lumia 1020 owners. For 1020 owners this application is only option. New Windows Camera app is lacking tons of features which make 1020 experience so unique with this app. Lumia 950 series camera experience is faster and better for some people, but 1020 still provides higher resolution and picture quality, especially when images are post processed on PC after capture.

I really love this app but I am experiencing some few problem with the app: 1. The app closes when I try to use focus and shutter speed and I also can't use the front camera because it closes. 2. Please fix the resolution of the photos that I take with this app because when I compare the photos it looks more boxy.

Hello MS mobile, is lumia still camera phone? When android has camera fv 5 that kan set shuter speed until hundreds second wthout limitation in hardware, but you remove 4s shutter speed and only give 1s. Oh my God, do you still have a brain?

Great camera app that gives you control and helps optimize the Lumia hardware.... But I really need the one touch option that the Microsoft version has so I can take pictures one handed.

The simple camera app yet lacking function's. The things the developer can do for making this app more productive are:- 1. Adding different types of picture ratio and different pixel size. 2. Adding swipe to photos. 3. Adding an option for more zoom. 4. Adding continues focus in video recorder. 5. The video recorder should have variety of option to record videos in different format at different different frame rates. 6. Smart sequence should take brighter photos. 7. Adding inbuilt option for HDR and panorama.

Living images is very superb concept. Nokia camera really captures fine photos but there are no modes for normal photography. Maybe not much necessary but could you please add pause button and zoom in and zoom out button on screen for easy photography and video shooting in Lumia camera which is coming with denim update? We really want it. So please do it for us.
