Lumia 920, 925, and 928 to Get Lumia 1020 Camera App

After months of rumors and leaked pictures, Nokia finally took the wraps off its Lumia 1020 camera phone. Though the device packs a pretty impressive camera with a 41-megapixel lens, it's also got a brand new camera application called Nokia Pro Photo to help users take better photos. Luckily, this app won't be exclusive to the Lumia 1020.

 

Nokia has confirmed that it will be releasing the Nokia Pro Photo application for other Lumia devices, namely the Lumia 920, the Lumia 925, and the Lumia 928 (basically any Lumia device bearing the PureView brand). Those that want the application will need an upgrade to the latest Amber software, though.

Nokia's Pro Camera app is stuffed to the brim with settings and functions that go a long way to satisfy the photography enthusiast. Manual exposure, complicated HUDs and even tutorials for newbies are all included and people who have had an opportunity to try the native camera app have described it as "intuitive," "responsive," and "functional." Nokia has apparently done what very few can by creating a "clutter-free augmented reality" for the app. We're glad it's going to be on more than the Lumia 1020 in that case!

    Not just more pixels, a much larger sensor, advanced floating lens, oversampling, improved low-light, better audio recording, etc. Bottom line it blows away any other phone camera on the market, while remaining relatively svelte (less bulge and better performance than even the Nokia 808).

    I'm hoping that by the time I'm eligible for an upgrade, they'll have a GDR3 model with this camera.
