Best free camera apps for Windows Phone

Best free camera apps for Windows Phone
Windows Phone is now host of the only smartphone camera with optical image stabilization in the Nokia Lumia 920, and other leading handset makers like Samsung and HTC have also put their best modules in the WP8 flagships, so it is shaping up to be a good choice for shutterbugs.

What about apps that make the most out of your camera, though? Both iOS and Android are inundated with software bits for adding color effects, post-processing of photos, making albums and frames, editing and anything else the photography mind would wish for.

The Windows Phone Store has its own suite of camera-friendly apps to choose from, save for advanced video editing, and we are rounding up some of the best out there to make the most out of your WP handset's shooter.

These are good apps for non-Lumias, since they already get Camera Extras and Creative Studio through the Nokia Collection.

I use Fotoroom all the time, it IS an amazing app (almost like a mini-photoshop). Have heard many good things about super camera and phototastic. Also some solid apps for photo editting: "CleverPhoto" "Pictures Lab" "SoMee" "Thumba Photo Editor" "Moquu" (GIF creator)
