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.
Phototag has just been updated with a couple more themes to add information overlay for your photos. Version 1.3 now has a total of six overlay themes: Place, Weather, Food, Baby, Speedometer, and Date+Time. The latest version also brings localization updates, wide tile support, and availability for Windows Phone 7.5 devices.
Phototag is only 2 months old at the Windows Phone Store. We’re following it closely because we’re big fans! It's handy for documenting captured moments on the photo itself and sharing the photo with others. The UI is minimal with bold colors good-looking typography. The swiping gestures also feel like this app is made specifically for Windows Phone.
There’s very little debate that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is capable of taking some fantastic pictures. But would you test that theory on such a memorable event as a wedding? An event where the moment doesn’t always afford you the chance to re-take the picture?
Wedding photographer Joy Marie Smallwood took such a chance at a recent wedding that took place at Capella Pedregal in Cabo, Mexico. The results held true to the Lumia 1020’s reputation.
Nokia has teamed up with the Thomson Reuters Foundation (www.trust.org) to launch a new international photography contest, aimed at empowering women around the world through capturing images. Everyone is encouraged to submit entries that explore women's empowerment in themes such as leadership, courage, passion, and motherhood to name but a few.
Fhotoroom is a very popular Windows Phone and Windows 8 photography app. It combines a healthy photo editor, a decent camera app and a photo-sharing network into a well designed app.
While Fhotoroom is a free app for both Windows Phone and Windows 8, add-on packs are available for in-app purchase with the Windows 8 version that added editing filters and brushes as well as removing the ads in the gallery. The charge was minimal and helped cover the server costs.
There's certainly an abundance of photography apps available on the Windows platform - we're talking about both Windows 8 and Windows Phone. One of said offerings is PhotoFunia, a cloud-based photo editing suite which provides you tools and options to let you enjoy photography with some interesting and fun results. The team have updated their app to work with Windows 8.1.
If you're not familiar with 2flicka, it's an unofficial Flickr app for Windows Phone. The app itself hasn't been live for very long, but already we're looking at yet another update.

Snap on past the break for the full read through.
Fhotoroom, one of our favorite photo-editing apps for Windows Phone, just got an update. Version 9.6 tweaks the straightening option. In addition to a new icon, the app automatically crops photos that you straighten within 10 degrees. Anything over that adds blank space at the corners.
An app that’s already on Android and iOS devices just made its way to the Windows Phone Store. Diptic lets you easily create photo collages and share them with friends. It’s a simple app, but with extra features for those who want to do more with their collages. We put the app in front of our camera to show you how it looks on our device.
