, NAIROBI, Apr 8 – Nokia is in the process of rolling out new camera features on the entire range of its Lumia smartphones.
Some of the features being introduced include Cinema graph digital camera lens and updated camera extras with object remover.
The features, which are already available on Nokia’s latest Windows Phone 8 smart phones, will now be available also on Nokia Lumia 900, 800, 710, 610 and 510.
“Nokia Lumia 900, 800, 710, 610 and 510 owners will be able to enrich their pictures with increased freedom,” Nokia’s Head of Product Marketing for East Africa King’ori Gitahi said.
“The Windows 7.8 software update is rolling out to users now. Keep an eye out for software update alerts on your Nokia Lumia and be sure to accept the update which will also enable these great new camera features.”
“Cinema graph is like a piece of Hollywood magic in your pocket that lets you bring your pictures to life by animating a part of the picture. When combined with the great new features on Windows Phone 7.8, Nokia Lumia will feel like a new phone with a wealth of new experiences to play with,” Gitahi added.
The other feature being introduced is the camera extras app, which offers smart shoot, panorama, action shot and a self-timer.
The updated version uses burst mode to take a sequence of photos so you can choose your favourite shot and then remove unwanted objects.
“With these user interface improvements, it really feels more like the smart camera found in our Windows Phone 8 range. We hope our customers will enjoy these new features as we continue to bring new experiences for all Nokia Lumia owners,” he said.
Nokia has been aggressive in the recent past by introducing the Lumia Smartphone in an effort to enhance its competition against its rivals, Apple and Samsung – in the smartphone category.
