When Nokia released its Camera Extras extension app for their Lumia devices back in May, there was a lot of love to share. In our detailed hands-on impressions we commented, "It's safe to say Nokia's Camera Extras is a must-have app for any Lumia device owner". Unfortunately though, not any Lumia device owner could download the app, because at the time it was only available in the U.S. and Chinese Marketplaces.
Now according to users reports we've received and a corroborating report from All About Windows Phone, Camera Extras is finally making its way out to the rest of the regions. For a recap, the application adds four extremely useful new shooting modes to your Lumia's camera. Smart Group Shot enables you to go back in time and swap half-open eyes and mid-sneezes for perfect smiles; Action Shot is a rapid burst-shooting mode to catch the action as it happens; Panorama lets you take a seamless wide-angle photo; and finally Self Timer gives you an extra 10 seconds to prepare the perfect shot.
We're not sure if every region has made the app ready to download yet, but you can easily check if Camera Extras is in your local Marketplace by clicking on the tile/link below, or by scanning the QR code to the right. These are universal links that will redirect to your local storefront, and if it gives you the option to install then you're in business! Now if only we had a PureView camera to go along with this...
