Although current Windows Phone 8 users can take advantage of Vyclone right now, the Nokia Lumia 1020 will have a special version available, much like Oggl Pro, Foursquare and Yelp! which were announced yesterday.
Now there’s nothing too radically different here as the changes are isolated primarily to one area: the camera.
Vyclone, which merges the social with video collection, is a new way of making meta-videos of events. As we stated back in May when it came out...
“The app enables consumers to mix footage captured on a Windows Phone with film taken by other people at the same event. The service synchronizes and edits each clip to create a single movie with all angles cut together. Raw footage is also available too, opening up custom remixes. It's quite the app.”
Think of concerts, performances, or other live events where a mass of people are and you can imagine the kinds of videos you can make.
Getting back to the Lumia 1020 version, Vyclone simply takes advantage of Nokia’s camera SDK. In short, it allows quick access to lossless zoom, meaning as you are recording you can zoom in the video just using your finger, without any degradation in video quality.
You can watch the video above to see it all in action.
While it’s not a grand-slam drool worthy feature, you have to admit that as developers get access to the camera API for the Lumia 1020, our apps in general should get better. For instance, Foursquare and Yelp! both will allow you to access the camera settings directly, apply filters and use full resolution images.
Look for more on these apps in the coming weeks. Don’t have the regular Windows Phone 8 version of Vyclone yet? Download it here in the Store.
