You’re out with your mates and want to take a photo. You take out your Lumia, snap a shot and look at it to reminisce instantly. Unfortunately you’ve been using the living image feature to take moving shots of hummingbirds and now your group shot with your mates is all of you awkwardly moving about for half a second. Until now, that has been a realistic scenario. Now, thanks to an update to Lumia Camera Beta, your phone will automatically detect if a subject is moving or not and determine if it needs to take a living image.
In addition to automatically only capturing living images when there is motion in your shot, the update to Lumia Camera Beta also brings updated capture and autofocus and general improvements and fixes.
Here’s the complete change log of the most recent update to Lumia Camera Beta as listed by Microsoft’s Lumia beta apps.
- Living images are automatically only captured for scenes with motion
- Updated capture and autofocus behavior
- General fixes and improvements
