Nokia Lumia 1020 - Hands On - 022

Nokia has always developed great software to take advantage of its smartphone cameras, and yesterday's Lumia 1020 was no different. In order to really make the company's redeveloped PureView technology soar, the company announced a new Pro Camera app so pictures produced by that 41-megapixel sensor look extra purdy. We initially thought the new app would be an exclusive to the 1020, but it'll actually hit the 920, 925 and 928 soon.

The app, Nokia explains, unlocks the "full imaging potential" of Lumia devices with PureView tech, giving users greater control over camera settings for better results. The software is not only flexible, but Nokia says it has designed Pro Camera in a way that makes professional settings understandable and intuitive for the everyday user.

"I believe that it is the start of a revolution in creative photography for mobile," said Marcus Olsson, the lead program manager for Nokia Pro Camera.

Nokia has been pretty good about spreading its great software across its growing Lumia Line—and even some apps to other Windows Phone 8 handsets—so it's no surprise we'd see the Pro app on its more recent 9xx handsets. Pro Camera will be available for the 1020 at launch, as expected, with the app coming to the 920, 925 and 928 once the Amber software update starts rolling out for Windows Phones.
