    i just updated Nokia camera beta and i saw those features have asterisk sign at the end of the sentence
    at first i jumped to conclusion that L1020 won't get these features
    but after a good read it doesn't mention anything for sure yet
    just saying that 930, 1520, and icon will have these superb features

    if L1020 won't get these awesome features, it breaks my heart
    i mean L1020 is Nokia Lumia best phone

    speaking of which, even iphone 4 has continuous auto focus
    dunno
    really hoping for those to be on my-1020
    sorry for the frustration that i have

    I think it will come to just abt all lumias later. Remember how at first double tap to awake was limited to certain lumias and later all got it.
    Even with the Refocus app which was limited to the more powerful phones initially then came out for all phones so I think its just a matter of time.

    ah ... you're right
    hopefully they bring continuous auto focus and living images to all Lumia devices
    doesn't make any sense if you really want these two features, you have to buy new phone such as 930

    cross fingers

    I mean, if they'll start phasing out features for older phones, I find it logical to at least start phasing out the low end devices, like Lumia 520/620/625/720, because of slower CPUs and less ram.

    After that, they can start trimming the Lumia 820 and up.

    The Lumia 1020 should last at least a bit longer, due to its 2 GB of ram. I expect apps (read games) to run on it longer anyways than the rest of 1st gen WP8 devices just because of its ram.

    The trouble is the CPU in the case of 1020, its now almost 3 years old and is not much different from the CPUs powering the low end lumias.
    Limitations might occur due to that despite the ram.
    But until a proper successor is in the market 1020 is still a flagship grade windows phone and shld be treated that way.

    I truly hope the same thing
    If they want to trim the features, they should start with the low end and not, let say, all lumia series not having Living Images and Continuous Auto Focus

    indeed
    L1020 is still flagship phone for now even they have 930
    so they should still treat L1020 as a flagship phone despite having old internals

    ============================================================

    this is messed up if L1020 won't have these neat features
    a flagship phone that is not treated as one
    and lol to that

    But, I have discovered some strange stuff while using camera beta on Lumia 1020 with 8.1 preview, My camera beta updated the other day, I have been taking pictures and I notice my images are moving... Went to my wife and show her, she said maybe because you have taken many of the same, a la google images and auto awesome, but... No I actually have living images, I have just seen a guy in YouTube as well with a 1020 and living images! I have taken a couple of pictures today, and they are bloody moving!
    So I guess Lumia 1020 have it already, if you want to check, take a picture and then go to the gallery but from the camera beta app, no from the gallery app, you'll see, happy to prove it if needed!

    To get it working on my 1020, I had to:

    *Install Windows Phone 8.1 Dev Preview
    *Install Latest Version of Nokia Camera Beta
    *Go to settings, swipe left, camera+pictures (or something, my phone's in Spanish) and "Reset Camera"
    *Then, open Nokia Camera Beta app, go into settings and "Reset Camera to defaults".

    That's all. Now I've got living images on every Still shot (NO Smart Cam!)
    Remember that, in order to see them, you have to open de gallery from the Camera Beta app, NOT the Photo Gallery.

    Downsides: Shooting videos became unstable when zooming into full distance (acts like if the hardware weren't enough to handle it)
    Also, automatic video playing in the camera roll doesn't work properly (when you swipe through your pics, video doesn't always start playing).

    This may sound dense, but how do I get the camera beta app? I searched for it in the store and there were no results. I do have a 1020 on 8.1 developer preview.

    Here are a few links you may try:

    Nokia Camera Beta in the Windows Store:
    Nokia Camera Beta | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Nokia Beta Labs: (a bit trickier, you have to log in with Nokia account)
    https://betalabs.nokia.com/

    Also, in the second option you can get Glance Background, a BEAUTIFUL glance screen customization app.

    I can confirm this works on the L928 as well. Not really sold on it though. Seems like it would take processing power to create these and it slows down the process for taking pictures by including an additional step. /shrug
