Camera and Photos apps for Windows 10 Mobile receive updates

Camera and Photos apps for Windows 10 Mobile receive updates
Both the Photos app and the Camera app for Windows 10 Mobile have been updated. The update takes the Photos app from 16.201.16372 to 16.317.14282, and includes some new features. Now, while viewing a photo from the app, you can select to have the image printed by clicking on the ellipsis menu (…).

The image goes to a wireless printer, and if there is not one near you, you can choose Print to PDF. Other choices under the Print heading include Orientation (is the image being printed in landscape or portrait?) and Size (Letter, Tabloid, Legal, Statement?) If motion was detected during the capture of the image, the photo can be used as a Living Image picture. Somewhat similar to Apple's Live Photos, with Living Image the first few seconds before you snap the shutter to take a picture is recorded as a video. This allows the image to move. With the update, you can have a Living Image picture viewed in motion whenever you load it on the screen, or you can set it as a still picture with no motion.

The changelist for the Camera app for Windows 10 Mobile includes the usual bug fixes and reliability improvements. Unfortunately, it doesn't add the Rich Capture HDR option, or one that would allow you to shoot in panorama view.

Just because they weren't included in the update now, doesn't mean that those features won't be added to the camera app at a later date. Keep your fingers crossed.

Camera app update for a Windows 10 Mobile OS which hasn't even been made available to 50% of Windows Phones. Lumia 928 is stuck at 8.1! Time to sell the stuff, I guess.

Nope it is not! That is what MS says, use Windows Recovery Tool you can flash your phone and you will get the WM10 update. This works for the 820! So why should it not work for the other phones?

Because it's slow and lagging. Crashing. Installed .164 on L640LTE and the result was again DISASTER. Even after resetting the deice and clean install all my apps, not from recovery. I can't believe how many fans are lying that is working "perfect".... And L928 have lower CPU than 640. Will not work well for sure.

I have a 640XL WM10 works fine no issues at all. Must be your firmware!

I have the 640xl and yes it has no problems, the battery life is stupid crazy. My wife broke her 1520, funny as hell accident of the phone being thrown out the window at 30mph onto asphalt. Funny enough the glass didn't break, but bent the lcd and cracked the underlying lcd, everything still works fine on it. So we pushed her over to our backup 640xl, works fine. Yes its on the latest w10 update. We also have a 640 on it, again works just fine. In my experience, this includes the 1520, sd cards are just stupid slow, anything you use constantly you want to save to phone not sd.

Windows 10 for Mobile is horrible. I loaded it onto my Nokia Lumia 830. Had issue after issue with the windows 10. People should ditch their MS Stock and MS Phones and go to Apple.
