Smart Cam

Well the rumors of Nokia combining its Pro Cam and Smart Cam photography apps into one package have proven to be true. Just a little while ago Nokia released its Nokia Camera App for Lumia Windows Phones.

You get the camera controls and zoom later features that Pro Cam offers along with the smart mode we've grown fond of that Smart Cam offers.

Looking down at our plethora of Lumia devices, there’s a distinct pattern we’re noticing: there are a ton of Nokia apps. Indeed, when it comes to camera apps one could argue that Nokia has too many with some even overlapping in function. Such is the case with Smart Cam and Pro Cam, which makes us feel a little schizophrenic when we’re choosing camera Lenses to snap that perfect moment.

The app Nokia Camera is supposed to alleviate that problem by combining Smart and Pro Cams into one app for all Lumia devices. So says Nawzil, who according to his Twitter profile is a social network specialist at Microsoft Kuwait. He even posted a supposed icon of the new mega app, though we cannot verify its authenticity.

If you have a Nokia Lumia 925 (or someone with a Lumia 1020, we suppose) you may want to check to see if your Smart Cam app has an update. Today, version 1.3.3.2 came out, a bump up from 1.3.2.3 a few weeks back.

The update has no changelog, or rather, it’s the same as the previous one meaning this is most likely some last minute compatibility updates for the upcoming Lumia 1020 or other bug fixes.

One of the big new features of the Lumia 925, which is now actually in people’s hands for purchase in the UK and a select few other territories, is the updated camera algorithms and new functionality. All of that is encompassed in the so-called ‘Amber update’, which is Nokia’s name for their inbound firmware change destined for all Windows Phone 8 Lumias later this summer.

One of those new features is the ability to run the Smart Cam app, which enables such cool camera tricks as motion blur, 10-frame action shots and more.

The good news is that app is now available in the Nokia Collection and yes, you can download it right now for your Lumia phone. The bad news is when launched, you’ll be greeted with a reminder that this app can’t quite run on your non-Lumia 925 just yet, because you don’t have that firmware update.
