Fhotolens is a neat photography app for Windows Phone, which provides your camera a virtual 10-24mm lens and HDR capture capabilities. The app has just been bumped to version 4.0, introducing a variety of features and improving the overall user experience.
Instead of being just a mere photography app with a few cool functions, the developer behind Fhotolens has decided to go all out and include a non-destructive image editor too. Here's a quick look at what's new in version 4.0 (for those of you who prefer lists):
- Fastest Loading 3rd Party Camera
- New and Fastest Non-Destructive Image Editor
- Unlimited Undo/Redo with Fast Slider to quickly see all of your changes.
- Create and Save Custom Presets
- Camera UI/UX updated
- Full Res 4:3 16:9 and 1:1 Ratios
- New HDR Processing Sharper and 25% Faster
- Camera now with AF and better Manual Controls
- New Library Search with +260 Sorting options.
Using a custom graphic library to really optimize the experience on Windows Phones, users can take advantage of less battery usage than other camera apps, less heat produced while in use, improved speed and other neat things mentioned in the above change log.
Sounds awesome, right? It is. Now go download it from the store and take some awesome photos. While Fhotolens is not as powerful as Fhotoroom, it's a sweet little app packing many features.

Nice. Can't wait to play around with this. Less heat and battery drain both sound like outstanding features!!
Should really be a standard for all apps lol
Which phone it is ???
Looks like 625 to me
Weird. You said that HTC 8S wont get WP 8.1 Update 1,but now it showed me to install it. SO where is the thruth? I know that i got preview 4 devs,but its weird.
Latest DP enabled GDR1 support for all HTC devices. Please stay on topic.
Sorry,but just asking. GDR1 for devs is available since last month and i get it now.
What Lumia is that on the pic?
It's a Lumia 630 I think.
Is it a New Lumia Phone???? w.t.f, this not the way to launch a handset
Looks like a 630 or 635.
I have both 630 & 624, its different dear
ty Rich for the review. It very common question we have been asked is why make this vs fhotoroom. Simply put Fhotoroom will be our Photoshop type editor while Fhotolens is our Lightroom app. A very cool unique feature also in fhotolens is that many times you will edit your photo and find the result to strong and your only choices are to go back and undo your changes and re apply reduced values or for non-destructive editors go back and reduce the value of each setting until you are happy. In fhotolens you have one option in the editing tools simply called "Opacity" and it will do all of this for you with one control. You can even save this as part of presets. We really hope you enjoy.
Awesome thanks for the strong WP support!!
