The Lumia 1020 was just launched and right away an update is available for Nokia Pro Cam.
you see while the Lumia 1020 brought several amazing features and settings to the table it also dropped a few of the 808’s settings, well it seems the new Pureview flagship is picking those up once on a time, and today it brought bracketing back in version 18.104.22.168.
So what is bracketing ?
In photography, bracketing is the general technique of taking several shots of the same subject using different camera settings. Bracketing is useful and often recommended in situations that make it difficult to obtain a satisfactory image with a single shot.
It basically means you can set 3 or 5 shots to be shot in succession with different exposure values.
what does it mean for a normal user? you can take a picture without worrying that you’d over or under expose it.
what does it mean for a photography geek , handmade HDRs with the images captured set to his preferences but the trade off is having to manually stitch the images together on a PC to form the final HDR. ( I suspect there will be a WP app for this soon as a similar app was developed for the Nokia 808 too.)
You should know that bracketing was meant for mounted/fixed photography and not handheld photography so plan accordingly.
