At a press event in New York earlier this week, Nokia officially announced its latest high-end Windows phone, the Lumia 1020. Following months of anticipation and rumours about its features, the phone does indeed sport one of the most advanced cameras on a smartphone on the market as expected. This is thanks to the 41 megapixel PureView sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, and a new version of the Nokia Pro Cam application, to take advantage of the high-end hardware features.
This application incorporates dozens of different settings,
effects of are other options to allow users to get the best quality results
while taking pictures and capturing video footage. The inclusion of this
feature means that users will be able to take advantage of the phone’s
impressive camera features and will certainly allow Nokia to compete with other
high-end camera phones like the recently released Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom (16
megapixel camera) and the upcoming Sony Honami, which is believed to sport a 20
megapixel camera. Learn more about the features of the Nokia Lumia 1020 on our website where you can also find the cheapest Nokia Lumia 925 prices.
Although the Nokia Pro Cam application offers a multitude of different settings and options, it also remains very easy to use. This is because the application is laid out of the interface in such a way that the options can instantly be accessed and a preview of each setting is provided on a single interface.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 is currently the only handset with this new version of the Nokia Pro Cam application. However, GSM Arena has recently reported that Nokia is planning to release an Amber update which will bring the feature to a number of older Lumia handsets. These include the recently released Lumia 925 and Lumia 928 models, along with the company's 2012 flagship model, the Lumia 920. Unfortunately, it looks like the Finnish manufacturer is not currently planning to release the update for any older instalments of the Lumia series.
Nokia is yet to release specific dates for when the update will begin rolling out, but once we hear official confirmation we will keep you posted.
