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 that is part social network, part photo editor and part camera app. 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, filters, and frame while the camera app offers you a decent amount of control over the Windows Phone camera.

The Windows Phone 8 version of Fhotoroom was recently updated to version 11, which has a healthy change log. The most notable additions with the update include an in-app store with free and paid for filters and a few new editing tools.

Stabilize your Lumia videos with LUUV

You already have some of the best onboard stabilization for your photos if you’re rocking a phone like the Nokia Lumia Icon or Lumia 1020. Nokia debuted optical image stabilization (OIS) technology in the Lumia 920 back in 2012. This piece of technology helps you achieve sharp images and better photos in low-light situations. You can now find it in all high end PureView phones. However, even Nokia’s onboard OIS tech has its limitations for stabilized photos and videos. Check out this stabilizer from LUUV if you find yourself shooting a lot of video with your phone.

The world of photography is incredible. It's a feat to capture the world and view any scene at a later date in glorious high definition, but it's another to further develop the technology to produce some extraordinary results.

Tiny Planets Pro is a fantastic photography app for Windows Phone 8. The app turns your panoramic or landscape images into tiny little planets by wrapping the image into a sphere that often resembles a planet spinning around the solar system. And it's not just useful for landscapes. Tiny Planets Pro can also put a creative twist to images other than the scenic variety.

Tiny Planets Pro does not take long to transform your images and once you have things just right, the final image can be saved and shared with other Windows Phone apps. There is not much to Tiny Planets Pro but if you are looking for a creative photo tool for your images, it’s definitely worth a try.

While Flickr’s competitor, 500px, has beautiful applications for both Windows Phone and Windows 8; Flickr themselves have yet to deliver to the Windows Store and the last update to their Windows Phone application was pushed out in March of 2012.

However, to fill the void of an official Flickr application on the store for Windows 8, we have set out to find the best third party app and to see if any of them has what it takes to provide the ultimate Flickr viewing experience. After shuffling through collections of terribly mediocre Flickr applications, which trust me that some of them are simply terrible, we stumbled upon “Flickrology” for Windows 8.

Follow us as we explore the app, and decide for yourself if the full version’s price tag is worth $2.49 USD.
