PSA: Nokia Camera app is missing for some Lumia users
File this story under odd, but the Nokia Camera app is nowhere to be found on the Windows Phone Store. A handful of tips this morning pointed out the missing app to us as users are looking to set up their phones.
Usually, such complaints are trivial, as the app just cannot be found under Search – a standard issue. However, in this case, when using the direct link to the Store, the app is 100% absent suggesting something a little more odd is going on.
Being a Sunday, we are not very confident that Microsoft will respond to inquiries, but, hopefully, the popular app will come back soon. As an alternative, people can download Nokia Camera beta to their phones until the regular version comes back online.
Update: Looks like it is hit and miss for people, depending on the phone's hardware. Our Lumia 530 sees the Nokia Camera just find, while our Lumia 1520 has an 'Item Not Available' message.
Thanks, for the tips, everyone

Edit: Ah but if you need to update it this could be a problem. Makes sense.
Lumia Camera anyone?
My 930 is waiting anxiously FTW :) Update: Not seeing the Nokia Camera on my L930 but seeing it on my L620 right now
Correct me if I'm wrong, anybody?
And if I'm right, it is a sign that high end users might get lucky soon, because denim is very very close. Hallelujah!
It's probably a bug, or it means 'Lumia Camera' isn't far...
And it seems 'Nokia Camera BETA' doesn't show up anymore.

Somehow I can't find the Nokia Camera App on the store while I can't download the Nokia Camera Beta, saying not available for my device... Could this mean Lumia Camera is coming?
Nokia camera - not available
Nokia camera beta - available and just installed it
