Lumia Camera app now available for Nokia Lumia 1020 users on Windows 10 Mobile
Microsoft said last month that once the Nokia Lumia 1020 received Windows 10 Mobile, users would be able to download the Lumia Camera app directly from the Windows Store. Unlike Microsoft Camera, the Lumia Camera app gives Lumia 1020 users support for DNG RAW files. Interestingly, while the app is not supposed to work with other Lumia devices, there have been reports from users of the Nokia Lumia 535 and Microsoft Lumia 640 that Lumia Camera has worked on their phones.

It would make sense that the app works on the Lumia 1020, since the phone is a camera-centric model sporting a 41MP rear camera, with OIS. The camera uses Zeiss optics. There is both a Xenon flash, and an LED flash on board.

Nokia Lumia 1020 owners can download and install Lumia Camera for free from the Windows Store.

I JUST downgraded to Windows 8.1 because of this..plus W10 ran so bad on my 1020. Should I just wait for the official upgrade? Doesn't seem like were too far away..

Wait for the official update. I also downgraded my 925. The DP of 10 had horrible touch and signal issues.

just reset the phone and the Windows 10 build 10586.11 works like a charm! Using it in my Lumia 930 and 830.

I didn't have any issues on the latest builds on my 1020. I just picked up the 950 because it's faster than my 1020 and has so many more hardware features.

This build is working great on my 1020 even without hard reset except for the fact that battery is draining faster than 8.1 and phone heated up more often than 8.1

I had issues like that in the early builds on my 1020. Is yours heating up at the camera hump? Look to see if the shutter is open. If it is, open the camera app and then close the camera app. If it then does not close try doing a three button soft reset.

I never had that problem in 8.1, only early builds of Windows 10 Mobile.
