Lumia Denim takes imaging to a whole new level

What can you expect from the upcoming Lumia Denim Update? Besides Cortana, live folders, SMS merging and many other improvements, there are of course fantastic unique imaging enhancements, too.

For the owners of the Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia Icon, and Lumia 1520, there are a load of new imaging innovations coming, those include:

A faster and more intuitive Lumia Camera app. The app will deliver images of the highest quality at the fastest speed, allowing you to capture multiple photos with just milliseconds between shots.

Moment Capture. This feature provides the quickest and easiest way to capture memories in high definition. A long press of the camera button automatically starts 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second. With each frame at 8.3 megapixels, you can save individual frames as high-quality still images. Due to hardware differences, Lumia 830 shoots Moment Capture in Full HD, not 4K, and with reduced 2-megapixel per frame quality.

Rich Capture. This simplifies picture taking with auto HDR, Dynamic Flash and Dynamic Exposure. Avoid the hassle of adjusting camera settings and focus on capturing the moment: Shoot first, edit and select the perfect shot later.

Latest imaging algorithms. Capture even crisper photos in daylight or low light, with our latest generation of imaging processing algorithms.

In the gallery below, you can see all the latest innovations in action – taken with a Lumia 930 and the Lumia Denim Update:


The Lumia Denim update has started rolling out to a limited number of devices in selected markets, and will continue arriving in waves by device. A wider rollout of Lumia Denim to all Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1 is expected to begin in early January, following partner testing and approvals.

In anticipation of the Lumia Denim Update, make sure you have Lumia Cyan installed. More details on that, here.
