Camera app updated for Windows 10 Mobile with performance improvements

Likely tying in with today's rather nice Photos app update is the other half with Camera now getting a bump from build 111 to 141 (build

Under the changelog in the Store there are the usual 'bug fixes and reliability improvements' and 'user experience improvements', but nothing pops out as being obvious. However, we do know some of you have had issues with the Camera app crashing on occasion and hopefully, this will alleviate that problem.

Unfortunately, no sign of pause for video recording or those manual controls to force Rich Capture HDR. Indeed, those features along with panorama mode are on top of many people's lists for most wanted options.

The update does not yet appear yet for Windows 10 on PC, but those can lag behind by a few hours or more on occasion.

Let us know if you find anything new or if any bugs have been fixed.
