Nokia has also released a new app to give manual control over the camera:
"Nokia Pro Camera: Get the most out of the Nokia Lumia camera: it works great in Auto mode or you can take full manual control over exposure, shutter speed, ISO, white balance and focus, just like on an DSLR-camera. The different framing grids help you to frame your shot, and if you did not get the shot completely straight, don't worry - you can straighten and crop it afterwards, over and over again. Plus, for the first time ever for Nokia Lumia, we’ve included an HD video mode that records high-quality stereo sound."
