Nokia used to be famous for its smartphone cameras. The high end Lumia series of devices had some of the best smartphone cameras on the market, and the company introduced a full manual mode before any of the major companies did. Of course, the golden age of Nokia is over, but the company is making a comeback.
Part of its comeback is the new announcement that the company will be bringing back the old camera app as the Nokia Pro camera app. It will feature a fully manual mode, a new interface, and some familiar old features. Hopefully this will also mean better image processing and faster shutter speeds in low light.
With software processing playing such a critical part in smartphone photography these days, this new app is a very welcome change. We love what we’re seeing and we hope Nokia’s comeback under HMD Global will keep bringing us better and better phones.
