When Nokia released its Lumia 1020 device earlier this year, it also revealed an impressive manual photography application. Pro Camera for Windows Phone 8 was originally only available for the Lumia 1020, but can now be downloaded on Lumia 920, 925 and 928 smartphones. Pro Camera offers five different flash settings as well as control of white balance, focus, ISO (up to 3200), shutter speed (from 4s to 1/16000) and exposure compensation (from -3.0 to +3.0).
That's not all. Smart Camera — the app released with the Lumia 925 — can now be downloaded on older devices as well. Smart Camera features a handful of "fun" photography tools like pan-motion blur capture, "action shot" burst capture and overlay, unwanted object removal, and a "change faces" feature to make sure everyone looks their best during group photo shoots.
Both apps are free in the Windows Phone 8 store, but users with older Lumia devices can only download Pro Camera and Smart Camera after upgrading to Nokia's latest software.
Nokia automatically notifies users when the Amber Update is available for their device, but users can learn how to manually update their Lumias here.
