Nokia Camera Beta gains full res zoom, continuous autofocus and more

Nokia Lumia devices are famous for the quality of their cameras, but for anyone looking to get even more from their handset, Nokia Camera Beta is a great app. Today an update was released that adds a batch of new features including continuous autofocus to help eliminate blurry photos, and the ability to capture surround sound with video footage.

Here’s that full list of new features:

  • Living Images support
  • Continuous Autofocus for faster focusing
  • Surround sound capture in Video
  • New Camera Roll with Full Resolution Zoom and inline playback of video, cinemagraph, smart sequences and refocus images
  • Nokia Camera integrates with Creative Studio and Video Trimmer for editing your photos and videos

It’s worth pointing out that Living Images and Continuous Autofocus are limited to the Lumia 930, Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon running Lumia Cyan.

You need to be running Lumia Amber in order to use the app at all, but the best functionality is reserved for Lumia Cyan. Head to Settings > Phone Update to grab the latest version of the app for yourself.
