Nokia Pro Cam app gets update
The Nokia Pro Cam app, which lets you control the settings of the rear camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020, allowing the camera to take 38MP photos and more, has been updated by Nokia. The update now adds exposure bracketing to the functions of the rear camera that you can personalize using the app. The tool allows you to take a series of photographs using 3 to 5 different exposure settings. Among the choices allowed are -5EV to +5EV, -1EV to +1EV and -2EV to +2EV.

In plain English, you can take a number of photos consecutively, each with a different exposure setting. This increases the chances that a picture you just shot will have at least one perfect outcome. In addition, it will allow those into photography to use the different exposures to create a final picture using a "homemade" HDR on a PC. Some smartphone cameras do this automatically by stitching together a series of different exposures of the same shot to create one outstanding photograph.

If you own the Nokia Lumia 1020, you can get the update by clicking on the sourcelink.

Samsung has released theirs with a tiny 1/2.3" sensor. 808 and 1020 beat the hell out of galaxy camera and zoom in all aspects other than zoom.

Can't wait for this app to hit the 925 and its brethren. I know it won't have the same functionality as the 1020, of course, but I want more control over the camera than the stock app provides.

Next thing they should fix is the terrible, grain, noisey and too much sharpening in the pictures. Also fix the fantasy land colours Nokia.

Just wondering. On this site the lumia 1020 beat out the gs4 and iPhone 5. If terrible is the word you use to describe the 1020's camera, then what word will you use to describe gs4 and iPhone 5 camera. Here's a hint, it can't be a word that's better than terrible since they have already been beaten in a camera comparison.

They're jealous Nokia didn't bring that camera to Android. And since no other manufacturer is capable of that kind of cameraphone, they are left with no choice but to call it "terrible".

Eh. I wouldn't say no other company. Sony has the potential, has they make some of the best camera's. Though, when they'll put them on a phone is anyone's guess.

We'll talk when they do make a phone with 1020's abilities. Right now, Sony is actually worse than other manufacturers. Just because they make one of the best cameras doesn't mean they can make a good cameraphone, there are just so many diffferences.
