Nokia's Camera Extras for the Lumia Windows Phones has been available in the US for a while now. While the initial release was in the U.S., Indian and Chines markets, we knew it was only a matter of time before other markets would get the camera app. Such is the case now with Australia, the United Kingdom and Italy (and probably other markets) where Windows Phone shutterbugs in these Countries can enjoy the extra camera settings.
For those not familiar with Camera Extras, the app brings the following functionality to your Lumia Windows Phone.
- Smart Group Shot: Smart Group Shot will take several pictures of the same group and select the most suitable facial expressions (avoiding subjects with their eyes closed, mouth open, looking away, etc.)and combine it all into one shot. You can also choose which facial expression to use as well.
- Action Shot: A burst mode to help you capture all the action shots you may face.
- Self Timer: A ten second timer to let you get in the picture.
- Panorama Mode: This allows you to capture several photos of landscapes and other wide angled subjects, the automatically stitches them together to create a single panoramic image.
Camera Extras isn't a stand alone app but rather integrates with your Windows Phone's camera settings. For those using Nokia Lumia Windows Phones, you can find Camera Extras here at the Windows Phone Marketplace or look in the Marketplace app on your Windows Phone under the Nokia Collection.
