Nokia Camera returns to the store, rebranded as Lumia Camera
Microsoft recently removed the Nokia Camera from the store. Now, sporting new names, both Lumia Camera and Lumia Camera Classic are available for download, but unfortunately there aren't any new features in the latest releases.
It was only a matter of time before Microsoft released an update for Nokia Camera to remove the branding prefix and release the app as Lumia Camera, just like all the other Nokia Windows Phone apps now under Microsoft's control.
Lumia Camera replaces Nokia Camera, while the Classic version is actually the Nokia Camera Beta. An odd way of doing things, but Classic is targeted for hardware without the Denim firmware update. Both apps are currently sat on version 18.104.22.168 and as touched on above, there aren't any noticeable changes in the two new updates.

I have a Lumia 1020 (RM-877_lta) with mexican carrier Telcel and I received the update this morning. But, due to the hardware I got on my device, I won't see much of the magic this app promises to the high-end devices like Icon, 930 & 1520 7_7
Guess this will be the case with the high ends, and the opposite with the low end phones..
Lumia Camera Classic in the description says the Lumia Camera version will be included with the Denim update for 830, 930, 1520, and Icon owners.
Which one would you recommend?
And no sign of Lumia Denim
It says that this version has all features till Cyan update...and 830,930,1520,Icon will automatically get Lumia Camera App with Denim Update...
In the end older phones will have only one version and ppl with 1520,930,Icon will have two...that's how it makes sense to me..
Only restart can make it!!!!!!!
and the Lumia camera recently updated... I can barely see the difference
Pls improve much, I lost my great moments in video recording with my family.
