Lumia Camera will be the default on all Windows 10 devices

One interesting bit of news that we didn’t really hear about during Microsoft’s Windows 10 event had to do with the camera. According to Engadget, the Lumia Camera will become the default camera app on all Windows 10 devices. That means you’ll get the same pretty much the same experience across devices regardless of the manufacturer.

Admittedly, it’s a step up from the current default app, which gives very very basic features and  somewhat decent image quality at best. And of course you can switch to your manufacturer’s own camera app if you so choose, but with the new features that come with the Lumia Camera app, I can’t imagine why you’d want to! You have the ability to adjust how much flash you want in a photo after the fact, auto-HDR, instant 4K video recording when holding the shutter button, and you can pull out a frame from your video as an 8MP photo. Of course image quality may vary depending on the capabilities of the camera itself (lenses, OIS, resolution, etc) but you get all the cool editing option that users have come to love with Nokia Lumia devices.

Are you excited to see the app being spread across Windows 10 devices? Let us know!
