Nokia updates Pro Cam for the Lumia 1020, adds bracketing to the mix
Nokia Pro Cam is a camera app that is currently only available on the new Lumia 1020. It reminds me a lot of the Windows Phone photography app ProShot or Camera360 in that Pro Cam gives you more control over the camera's settings.
While the Lumia 1020 is just hitting store shelves today, the Pro Cam app is seeing its first consumer update. The update for version 18.104.22.168 brings more user control to the table with a bracketing setting.
The bracketing setting will allow you to take 3 or 5 exposures at a range of exposure settings. The ranges available are -.5EV to +.5EV, -1EV to +1EV, and -2EV to +2EV. Bracketing is a great tool when you're not sure what the best exposure is and you don't want to spend a lot of time tinkering with settings between shots.
For those who haven't seen the update notification push through, you can find Nokia Pro Cam here (opens in new tab) in the Nokia Collection of the Windows Phone Store. It is our understanding that eventually Pro Cam will become available for other Lumia devices but for now, it's an exclusive for the Lumia 1020.

And please...take your time releasing Amber Nokia...31st February 2019 should be a good date.
BTW your numbers are not even correct.. as much as we know we have atleast 10 pple (from wpcentral) who have 1020.
You know Android might be a good change. There you will get no updates at all! :D
1. how fast are all the photographs taken - I have noticed there is a delay between the photos you can take with the 1020, and if you have to wait a few seconds between each photo, it may be a useless feature without at tripod. Does it snap all photos at once and process afterwards?
2. Is there an ability to comine the photos into a HDR? this would provide more dynamic range into the highlights which is something lacking significatnly in camera phones. This definitely could be a start to official HDR support which would be exciting. I dont like "artsy" HDR though - need the option to make it subtle and natural looking.
