Whether you’re an amateur photographer, or a professional, the latest Lumia update to our celebrated camera app, delivers a wealth of imaging innovations to help you capture the moment.

Thanks to close collaboration with the Windows Phone team and taking advantage of the powerful hardware on the Lumia 930, Lumia Icon, Lumia 1520 and the latest Lumia 830, Nokia Camera will be updated to Lumia Camera as part of the Lumia Denim Update – and it’s more than a simple name change.

Our cameras have always led the way in image quality (and we’re determined to keep it that way), and that gets even better with the Lumia Camera, which brings the next generation of our image processing algorithms to capture sharper pictures with more detail both day and night.

Speedy shooting

Along with leading quality, the Lumia Camera brings super-fast pocket to capture, and shot to shot speeds, to ensure you never miss the moment. Using the camera hardware button, Lumia Camera springs into action in an instant, and takes the first shot faster than you can say, “say cheese”. Plus, with milliseconds between photos, you’ll be snappy happy like never before.

4K-quality video

The amazing new Moment Capture feature within Lumia Camera offers a new way to capture the world around you, and makes it quicker and easier to capture the perfect shot.

Moment Capture is activated by a long press of the camera button, and instantly starts recording your subject in 4K at 24 frames per second. Each of the frames captured is a high quality 8.3 megapixel shot that can be saved as an individual photo.

You can now record those special moments without worrying about perfecting the shot, and pick the perfect moment later.

Lumia 830 also brings all the great features of Lumia Camera, but shoots Moment Capture in FullHD, not 4K, and with reduced 2-megapixel per frame quality.

Rich Capture brings Auto HDR and Dynamic Flash

With Rich Capture, you can avoid the hassle of adjusting camera settings to shoot first, and edit and select the perfect shot later. Rich Capture also guarantees better image quality by adapting to any scene and capturing and merging multiple images together simultaneously, and applying auto HDR with dynamic exposure steps and flash settings – to provide the perfect shot with more details than ever before.

The great New Dynamic Flash setting captures images automatically with and without flash, and lets you decide how to remember the scene by choosing the amount of flash used in the shot, after it has been taken. You can have less flash for really warm photos, or apply more flash to make the details even sharper.

When is it available?

The new Lumia Camera will be available for Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia Icon and Lumia 1520 as part of the Lumia Denim update that starts rolling out in Q4.
