    It was rumuored to come with W10.
    Lumia Camera app likely to be expanded to all Windows Phones for Windows 10 | Windows Central
    Besides u can't really expect anything much apart from faster startup since the phone runs on a 3 year old Processor that can't support most of the new features.

    Camera startup is good enough for me - coming from Nokia E6

    It will come, believe me. People say its mainly hardware restrictions, whilst it is obvious we can't get 4k recording, but we still can get faster launch.
    SO I side loaded Lumia camera 5 using power tools and developer unlocked 1020. Guess what. Speed is awesome. No lag or anything only thing was since the app wasn't designed to work for phones other than 830, 930, 1520, I had problems taking the actual shot. showed my insufficient disk space etc. Overall it is very much possible/ it is certain the app is capable of running on 1020.

    I tried using deployment kit and it gave me an error while sideloading the .appx file to my unlocked Lumia 1020. Can you give me a link to the .appx file and power tools?

    You will need a decrypted version lumia camera 5 .appx file. Unfortunately I deleted mine since apart from the speed benefit i wasn't able to click photos.

    The phone hardware can run Lumia Camera 5 but the hardware restrictions could be in the camera module itself. There propably will be improvements but the thing is that those full res images will not be saved any faster. The hardware just isn't fast enough.

    OK, so after some searching, I found the right .appx file and sideloaded it to my Lumia 1020. The start-up speed is excellent. It doesn't take shots, though. Really need a working update to the old Lumia Camera 4.9 app so that at least we could get start-up speed improvements. I do understand that the hardware is not capable of rich capture and moment capture.

    Even faster start-up would be enough for the aging phone. The current Lumia Camera 4.9 app, when launched, first shows a blank screen, then the Loading... screen, and then the camera interface finally appears. It takes ~4s to get the camera ready to take pictures. The newer Lumia Camera 5.0 app is ready to take pictures as soon as the flipping animation is over. So that CAN be implemented in 4.9 app to make it faster since the hardware is capable.

    Camera360 Sight can take full res photos and is much faster than Lumia Camera. You lose some things, but it could be a nice compromise between Microsoft Camera and Lumia Camera. On the downside, you can't map it to the shutter key, AFAIK.

    So is Proshot !! It is full professional app, but the problem, microsoft doesn't allow to launch it via hardware button.

    seems that we are going to have lumia camera 5 on win10 update.
    For start up speed, a simple work around is to start lumia camera from multitasking. It speeds up a lot.

    I found a patched .xap file for ProShot that has the launch-from-camera-button functionality, which can be deployed to dev-unlocked phones using the free Microsoft tool. I don't know if I can post it here.

    Lumia Camera 4.9 shows the resuming screen when it is launched from the multitasking screen.

    I've messaged both of you. BTW, for those who are curious, here are some screenshots.
    *As a sidenote, I also have the launch-from-camera-button .xap file for Camera360 Sight*

    Do you know what they did to change it? Was it over on xda or something? Thought I had seen something in a comments thread on an article but then couldn't find it anymore.

    Might not mind a message if someone in this thread would like to send it over ;)

    Though I don't know what was exactly done, but by examining and deploying both .xap files (ProShot and Camera360 Sight), I think that the person who did the hack actually tinkered with Lumia Camera 5.0 .appx leaked onto the internet and applied the patch to .xaps for both popular camera apps.

    I need someone to verify: Does anybody here have Lumia Camera 5.0 with full Denim? If so, please deploy the .xap and the sideloaded app should replace Lumia Camera's entry in the list of default apps, if I am correct.

    Hope you are not breaking the developers rice bowl by distributing a patched xap file.

    Think before you act.

    Thankfully he didn't post it here. It is likely against forum rules. If you wanted to find something on the internet though, you could.

    As for the subject at hand, it's an interesting topic. From what I've read, the dev has expressed interest simply from the standpoint of figuring out how the change was made and if there are ways to make it easier (hopefully for the paying customers, I presume).

    Check the video above, it features an as of yet to be released build of Windows 10 running on a Lumia 1020.
    It's in Chinese but it shows that phones that do not feature Snapdragon 800 may get Lumia Camera 5.5.

    Here's hoping
