Nokia shows some camera muscle, picks the 10 most creative Lumia photos of the month
The folks behind the Nokia Conversations blog have "scoured" the depths of different social networking platforms, in an attempt to showcase what hundreds of millions in R&D in camera tech has resulted in. The results are obviously quite intriguing, and we never really learned to say no to a few hand-picked shots, especially when they were masterfully made.
Some of the features that Nokia has decided to spotlight in their pick include Nokia Cinemagraph, which allows you to turn stills into animated shorts with a clever piece of code, Nokia Refocus, which lets you change the focus of your photo after it has been snapped, and the Action Shot feature of the Nokia Camera app. As you're about to find out, simplistic-looking features like those actually spur creativity like no other, as apps, such as Vine, have shown in the past. Unfortunately, it's not always clear which Lumia model was used in snapping those, though that shouldn't at all stop you from taking a peek inside the gallery right below!
Note: Nokia Cinemagraph shots are fairly large, so it may take a while for those to load, depending on your connection.

This gif-like piece of photo wizardry was made using the Nokia Cinemagraph app.
Yet another Nokia Refocus gem. You can dynamically switch the focus, and the app also allows you to highlight certain colors, while everything else will become black/white.

Apparently, some lucky duck was back stage at the Grammy's, and as the folks behind the Nokia Conversation blog put it, he has "fire, explosions and Katy Perry" in this Cinemagraph
