Nokia details its new Refocus feature: shoot now, focus later, coming also to the Lumia 920

Yep, that goes for you, Lumia 920 owners who still have a year or so on their contract, but also for the Lumia 925, 928, 1020, and, of course, the Lumia 1520 phablet, where the Refocus will make a debut.
Lytro-style effect, allowing you to blur and sharpen the object front and center, the background, or put the whole picture in focus. It's pretty neat, and the funny thing is that your friends can also do this when you post the pictures online to the Facebook service, for example.Nokia posted several pics taken with the Refocus feature, that demonstrate an awesome
A cool effect is also present, which leaves the close object in focus colored, while rendering the rest of the scene black&white, for even more highlight, and we'd imagine Nokia can gradually add more effects like this one to the mix with Refocus. You can play around with the four images below, clicking to shift the focus back and forth, marveling at the Lytro-like effect that your camera-centric Lumia will be able to achieve.

If refocus is available on the L929, the L929 may be my 2nd phone.

Damn I feel envious. I might be able to afford the Batman 1320 when it comes out but that's it.

The amount of features apps, innovation, and support from Nokia has just been simply amazing.. I even have to give it to Microsoft with my third feature update of the year coming any day now.. If you count all of the individual updates that Nokia Lumia WP's have received this year you will come up with 7.. That's extraordinary❕ Don't listen to people who say negative things about how Microsoft is slow to update WP...This is totally not what my experience has been with WP8, and the NL920 has been the best smartphone experience I think I could possibly have had... And that's including Android and iOS.. Windows Phone is here to stay, and we now have three terrific choices in smartphones for whatever fits your needs.. I would say good job to Samsung, Apple, HTC, Sony, Motorola, Google, Microsoft, and especially Nokia the underdog who hung in there, and actually changed/influenced a lot in the industry..

So true mate! Nokia's support to the platform was top notch. I don't think any other OEM actually showed that much dedication before. Much respect to Nokia. People have started to realize that they need more choices, and Nokia's efforts are being recognized and appreciated! Now Nokia's Lumia sales are skyrocketing! It was well worth it since the beginning, and Nokia truly deserves it!
