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.

    :( I wish it was Android ...

    Now After that I know that Microsoft helped the US Government spying on us , I am not supporting Microsoft at all from now on.

    How can I trust them with my private data anymore ? How can I trust their Windows ? I am sure they have a backdoor open no one will ever know.

    How can I trust Microsoft with your private data???? hahahaha

    Like you're really important to spy on. Only person they're looking for is to prevent another bomber/terrorist attack but you are so fkn important...that they instead of focusing on that, they'll try to focus on you.

    I can't stop laughing about the 'how can I trust them' like you cared.

    laugh at yourself.

    yes I am important and I don't want any one to know my private data at all ZERO.

    and you are an IDIOT if you think Terrorists would use any electronic communications while planning any attack. this is a trivial thing to avoid .

    but the Government Brainwashed you with the fear from terrorism that does not exist.

    I hope you're a troll, because if you're not a troll that means you're a dolt. Google is just as cooperative with the NSA as MS. If either one of them refuses to hand over information the Feds will bend them over hard.

    Anyone that has a problem with that should have voted for someone who actually is against government spying. Instead you just get Bush and Obama. Blaming a corporation for obeying the laws our elected officials put into place is silly. They don't have much choice.
