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.
Two popular Windows Phone photography apps are in the process of being updated. Fhotoroom is a Windows Phone app that combines a photo editor, photo-sharing network and camera app under one roof. Fhotolens, from the same developer, is a camera app for Windows Phone 8 that is fitted with a virtual 10-24mm lens to offer a fish-eyed perspective on things.
The developer, Thomas Lock, is constantly working to improve these two apps and has released updates for both the Windows Phone 8 and 7.x versions of Fhotoroom. The version 1.8 update for Fhotolens had to be pulled to address a few bugs and should be rolling out in a few days (submitted for certification this past Friday).
ProShot is a feature rich photography app for our Windows Phone that gives you a healthy amount of control over your camera settings. The Windows Phone 8 app has settings to adjust the shutter speed, ISO levels, white balance, focus, exposure compensation and more. One of the few drawbacks to ProShot was the incompatibility with Samsung and Huawei Windows Phones.
ProShot was updated today to version 3.5.1 which corrects this incompatibility. With the update, ProShot now has support for Samsung and Huawei Windows Phone along with support for the Lumia 1520 and Icon Windows Phones.
The word of the year for 2013 was ‘selfie.’ If you want to have some fun with selfies, then definitely check out Warp Photo Booth for Windows Phone 8. Just launch the application, and take a picture with a very funny distortion effect. It’s a really simple photo app and we’re having a lot of fun with it.
Head past the break to watch our hands on video and walkthrough.
We make a lot of fuss about how kick ass the cameras are on Windows Phone with devices like the Lumia 920, Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520. That’s great and all, but it’s the person behind the camera that makes the real difference. So what happens when you take an accomplished and skilled mobile street photographer and give him a device like that? You get some pretty great results, especially when you put him on the sideline of a Seattle Seahawks game at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
We have covered Fhotolens from the earliest beta versions and for those not familiar with the Windows Phone photography app, it provides your camera a virtual 10-24mm lens and HDR capture capabilities.
The app has been updated several times since its public release and today Fhotolens gets bumped to version 1.5 that mainly deals with the HDR (High Dynamic Range) feature.
