The Nokia Camera app, which combines some of the features of its Pro Camera and Smart Camera apps, has been available to download from the Windows Phone Store since October. Thus far, it’s been aimed at Nokia’s higher-end PureView handsets – so the Lumia 920, Lumia 925, Lumia 928 and Lumia 1020, but with the latest beta release, it’s officially supporting all Windows Phone 8 Lumia handsets.
Announced at Nokia World 2013, the app serves up faster access to sport or night mode, as well as a full manual mode for more precise control over shutter speed, ISO, white balance and more. It also includes Nokia’s Smart camera mode which basically allows users to take a sequence of photos that can be altered afterwards to emphasize (or remove) things like movement, or select the best snap.
Now you can access a beta version of the app on the Lumia 520, Lumia 521, Lumia 620, Lumia 625, Lumia 720, Lumia 810, Lumia 820, and Lumia 822.
