Windows Phone Photography

One of the key features of our Windows Phone is the camera.  From the 16mp camera of the HTC Titan II to the optically stabilized Pureview camera on the Nokia Lumia 920, these cameras help us capture the moments of our lives.

Sure it may sound corny but these cameras help capture memories of special events, of your children growing up or of the sights you see as you travel.  Here you will find a collection of articles and reviews that focus on our Windows Phone cameras.

PhotoMic is a Windows Phone photo editor that gives you the ability to add text bubbles to your photos, creating a short story with your images. The app also has the option to create a collage from your photos that allows your images to take on a comic strip appearance.

PhotoMic has a wide range of templates, fonts and bubble callouts to help you customize your Windows Phone pics. You also have the ability to add an HDR or sketch effect filter to your final product before saving.

In using PhotoMic over the past couple of days, we found it to be a neat Windows Phone photography app for creating unique, fun photos.

Postcards is a simple photo sharing Windows Phone app that allows you to send a photo to random users worldwide. The interface is straightforward and the only information shared is your photo, the city where the photo was taken and any comments you add to the photo.

Postcards may not rank up there with the likes of Instagram or Fhotoroom with regards to photo sharing networks. However, if you like the randomness of seeing what is out there in the world, it might be worth a try.

Masks, a nifty Windows Phone image effects editor

Masks is a new photo editor for Windows Phone from the developers behind the popular Windows Phone photography app Fhotoroom. The app allows you to apply effects filters to specific areas of your photo by using preset masks.

The app includes 26 masks and 23 filters. You can pick up more masks through an in-app purchase.

Keep in mind that Masks is not a full featured photo editor but rather a specialty editor. It may not appeal to everyone but in using Masks over the past few days it comes across as a nice editing tool to have in your Windows Phone photography library.

TouchRetouch is a handy Windows Phone photography app designed to help you remove unwanted content from your photographs. Whether it's a blemish on someone's portrait or an annoying tree limb that has snuck into the frame, TouchRetouch can get rid of them.

The photo editor lacks any additional editing tools (crop, exposure adjustments, filters, etc.) but does a decent job of automatically cloning out unwanted content or objects from your photos. The controls are simple and straightforward and for the most part, TouchRetouch makes a nice first impression.

Earlier this summer, we travelled to QuakeCon in order to catch a first look at Bethesda's new Doom game that is coming to Xbox One and PC sometime in the future. Xbox 360 owners can already play the first three Doom games thanks to the awesome Doom 3 BFG Edition, but mobile gamers aren't so lucky. iOS has Doom Resurrection and the Doom RPGs, but neither Windows Phone nor Android has an official Doom game to their names. Windows Phone does have an unlicensed port called Doom GLES though.

Speaking of unlicensed Doom, we also have an app called Doom Shooter from M4Multimedia that will put a smile on Doom fans' faces. Doom Shooter is a free camera app/lens for both Windows Phone 7 and 8 (including 512 MB devices) that lets you pretend to shoot everything on your camera feed with the trusty Doom pistol. You can even add blood splashes to your photos for maximum authenticity. Doom Shooter has some obvious room for improvement, but the simple joy of seeing Doom graphics overlaid on your selfies can't be denied.

With Nokia Camera, you can change a lot of camera settings like white balance, focus, ISO, shutter speed, and brightness to take the perfect photo, but all of that don't matter if you don't pay attention to framing or composition. Fortunately, Nokia Camera provides framing grids that you can activate within the settings. We'll teach you how to turn them on and how you can use them to improve your photos.

Kamera Plus is a Windows Phone camera app that delivers a healthy amount of effects filter that can be applied to both your front and rear facing camera. The effects are applied in real time so you measure the effect before tapping the shutter button.

The photography app includes an in-house photo gallery, camera settings and a simple viewfinder layout.

Available for low-memory devices, Kamera Plus does have the potential of being a nice camera app for your Windows Phone but a nagging lag time kills the experience.

Gotya is an interesting app that hopes to turn your Windows Phone camera into a remote controlled, motion activated surveillance camera. You can set your front or rear camera to take pictures when a motion area is breached. Images can be saved locally or to Gotya's Cloud Service.

There are a few additional bells and whistles with Gotya that add to the app's appeal but the motion detection can be a little on the sensitive side. The app, which is available for 512MB devices, has potential and a little fine-tuning will help Gotya shine a little brighter in the Windows Phone Store.
