Lumia Denim combines the latest Windows Phone 8.1 update with exclusive experiences for Lumia smartphones
Microsoft has announced the Lumia Denim update for the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, bringing extra features and enhancements to existing Lumia smartphones.
Lumia Denim combines the latest Windows Phone 8.1 update with exclusive experiences for Lumia smartphones. Microsoft stated that Lumia Denim also helps cement the company’s strength in imaging with the introduction of innovations in Lumia Camera that make it work faster and more intuitively.
Coming as part of the Lumia Denim update to Lumia 930, Lumia Icon and Lumia 1520, Lumia Camera offers speed. Users never need to miss a moment with Lumia Camera and its fast camera start up and capture speeds. Users can take numerous photos with just milliseconds between shots.
Also, high definition. Using Moment Capture, a long press of the camera button within the app automatically starts 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second. Each frame is of high image quality at 8.3 megapixels, allowing every single video frame to be selected and saved as a still image.
Users can also get the best shot every time with Rich Capture, which simplifies picture-taking with auto HDR and Dynamic Flash. With Rich Capture, people can avoid the hassle of adjusting camera settings; they can shoot first and edit and select the perfect shot later.
Additionally, picture quality in poor light environments has been improved; users can capture high quality smartphone images in low light with the latest generation imaging algorithms.
Lumia Camera will initially roll out as an update with Lumia Denim for Lumia 930, Lumia Icon and Lumia 1520 and as an over-the-air update for Lumia 830 in the fourth quarter 2014. Lumia Denim will roll out as an over-the-air update to all the other Lumia Windows Phone 8 smartphones, following partner testing and approvals.
