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.
Fhotoroom is a popular Windows Phone photography app with social network and photo editor functionality, as well as camera support to boot. Fhotoroom can be used as a standalone app or you can register to share your photos with other Fhotoroom members. The Fhotoroom photo editor covers the basics, including filters and frame, providing some degree of choice to the user. Today, we're looking at a rather large update, which has just been published on the store.
Choosing the best Windows Phone camera app may be as difficult as choosing the best weather app. We are fortunate to have plenty of quality choices in the Windows Phone Store that choosing the best app to satisfy our shutterbug needs can be tough.
Windows Phone Central reader bijak_riyandi has started a Forums discussion debating the merits of three camera app choices. He pits the Nokia Camera, Microsoft Camera and ProShot apps up against each other to see which of these photography apps stands out from the pack. He tested all three on his Nokia Lumia 1020 running Windows Phone 8.1 looking at the speed of the app and the quality of the photos.
It was only a few days ago when we spoke about an upcoming ProShot update and today it's readily available for download. The massive update introduces numerous changes and improvements to the app which brought the Windows Phone community a DSLR range of controls for their smartphone cameras.
ProShot is a well-received Windows Phone photography app that delivers a DSLR range of controls to your camera. ProShot allows you to control settings such as ISO, White Balance, Shutter Speed, Focus and more. You can shoot in full-auto or take the reins and shoot manual, tweaking the camera's settings to suit your tastes.
Proshot is due to receive a major update over the next few days that will bring a completely redesigned user interface, front facing camera support and more to the Windows Phone app. There is also a noticeable boost in ProShot's performance that increases the burst rate and gives capturing images a little more pep.
We've been tinkering with the updated version over the past few days and it adds to the appeal of what was already a fantastic Windows Phone photography app. If you like the current version of ProShot, you'll really enjoy version 5.0.
Lomogram is a popular Windows Phone photography app that featured over forty creative filters and other editing effects to give your Windows Phone photos a little zip. The app was recently updated with a few design changes that included a name change to Metamorphosa. Changes that weren't exactly well received.
While we aren't certain as to the particulars, there seems to have been a parting of the ways between the developers and publisher of Lomogram with some suggestion that the original app was stolen. The end result of all this controversy is the re-release of Lomogram, as Lomogram+, in its pre-Metamorphosa form.
The Nokia Lumia 1020's biggest feature is its 41 megapixel camera and that impressive piece of hardware is being used to help medical research in tandem with microscopes, according to a new post on the Nokia Conversations blog.
Fun fact: Most of us here at Windows Phone Central really, really love photography. The lot of us are big fans of taking photons and turning them into photos. We won’t lie, from time to time we get jealous of the polished and varied photography apps our iOS friends have. That’s changing every week as Windows Phone grows. Today we got a new photography app that we’re liking it a lot so far. Community, meet Black for Windows Phone.
