Update to HTC Camera app available for HTC One (M8) for Windows
Nestled on a shelf in the Windows Phone Store next to other utility apps, games and other downloadable content, is the HTC Camera app. The app, designed for the HTC One (M8) for Windows, has received an update to version 2.0. The update brings the Pan 360 feature, which replaces the Panorama mode that comes with the phone out of the box.

So you're probably wondering what the difference is between Pan 360 and Panorama, right? Settle down, we're getting to that part. Pan 360 will allow you to take panoramic shots horizontally on a plane and also vertically along the axis. Unfortunately, the HTC Camera page in the Windows Phone Store doesn't include a changelist, so we hope that those of you with the device will pass along any new features.

Possibly a new feature is the "Swap Camera" option that allows users to switch from the back-facing camera to the camera in front by swiping across the screen. The HTC Camera app is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. If you've already installed the app, keep an eye peeled for the update.

Got the update this morning. Apparently it also increases the quality of the photos it produces, which is always good. I am going to have to test it out later and see how it is.

Even a lumia 520 takes better pics than m8. There is no need to even try the camera on m8. That purple fringing. Poor details and ultra low dynamic range make the camera unusable.

That is the very overdramatic. It isn't that bad, and people just like to get onto the bandwagon of the camera sucks. For a flagship, it is disappointing, but not unusable bt any means. I don't use the camera much, but the other features make up for it. And saying the 520 takes better pictures is just wrong.

Lol, I just realized that. I am a dude, I just like Miku. And when I first opened this account, my profile pic was Naruto.

The m8 takes some pretty good shots. Not the best but they look good. As far as the swap camera goes, thats been there since day 1 for the m8 with windows.

I'm thinking about getting a M8 windows - is the camera really that bad? Like compared to the Lumia 930 or the Lumia 1520?
