Exclusive to the new 41-megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020 (read our hands-on here), Hipstamatic's Oggl Pro app delivers all the features of the original Oggl but adds advanced functionality for photographers.
Some of the more notable capabilities of Oggl Pro are similar to those found on advanced compact cameras and DSLRs. With Oggl Pro you are able to make manual exposure adjustments including shutter speed, on-screen tap-to-focus and the ability to set white balance and ISO. Oggl Pro also comes with an auto-level, a lossless 3x zoom and promises full resolution image capture to which you can apply Hipstamatic's film and lens effects.
Like the original Oggl app, subscriptions cost $2.99 a quarter; $9.99 a year for sharing services and access to Hipstamatic's full range of film and lens effects, including the delivery of new gear each month. Oggl Pro is free and comes installed on the Nokia Lumia 1020. Owners of the new smartphone who sign up by August 9 will receive 60 days of complimentary access to Hipstamatic's entire catalog of lenses and films.
The original Oggl app is available on iPhone and, according to Hipstamatic's press release, will soon come to WP8 devices with at least 1 Gigabyte of RAM.
