Nokia Brings Windows Phone 8 Camera Apps To Early Lumia Smartphones
by Ernest Doku
Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has made public that its digital camera lenses, only found on the current Microsoft Windows Phone 8 operating system, are around for its non-WP8 handsets.
These features, such as Cinemagraph for animating photos and Camera Extras are being rolled out to the last generation of handsets - which can't be upgraded to WP8.
Those mobile phones are in the process of being upgraded to Windows Phone 7.8, which Omio recently reported has been resumed.
Microsoft had discovered an error and temporarily paused the update rolling out, as covered here.
Windows Phone 7.8 does bring in features of the new Windows Phone 8 OS, where these Nokia exclusive apps round the additions off nicely.
We have already covered what Cinemagraph can do, which can be seen in the picture above.
Camera Extras come with features such as Smart Shoot, with its multiple shot burst mode; a self-timer picture capture function; an all-around panorama and action shot capabilities.
Check out the demo video below of the new digital camera lenses, and how to get them.
