    Hello so just yesterday I downloaded the Lumia Camera app on my Lumia 830, and as we know the L830 comes with Lumia Denim out of the box. But when I tried to open the app it said my phone is outdated and can't launch the app. Anyone know how to fix this? If so It would be kindly appreciated :)

    Use Lumia camera classic
    Your phone still needs an update before you can use the one you downloaded. This update will come soon (within a few weeks)

    To get the Rich Capture or any of those new features you still need to get this update first.
    Your 830 had Denim out of the box but still needs the update before you can use the Rich Capture etc.

    No it is no app. It is a part of denim. But Microsoft did not yet release it. So you still need to wait for a while

    The 830 should have come with Lumia Denim firmware, but its actually just WP 8.1.1 with Cyan firmware and a fake Denim label (none of the Denim features are functional on 830 factory software).

    The real Denim firmware should arrive by an update in the coming months, depending on your carrier.

    Microsoft should have stated that the "Denim" included on the 830 was functionally incomplete and in need of an update. That doesn't look good from a PR point of view though.

    Please quote an official source for any of the claims you state.

    I would like them to make an official statement as well. The closest I've seen is a comment by Juha Alakarhu while discussing RAW coming to the 830 (In an interview by WC posted yesterday): "Oh. Yes. That will becoming with the Denim update".

    That said, even without and official statement, it seems pretty clear to me that the 830 does need a further firmware update. If so, that's NOT what was promised nor marketed (still) by Microsoft. It's one thing to need an app update and quite another to need a firmware update.

    I'm actually quite angered and frustrated over this. Simply, it's a case of misrepresentation of a product to consumers. And those consumers, like me, who have had the phone long enough can no longer seek a refund. It's the same old story of little recourse for bad (or lacking) software that we've dealt with for decades and have, somehow, come to regard as acceptable rather than not.

    I'm waiting until we get confirmation before I decide what action to take.

    Anyway, rant over.

    The 830 is waiting just as most 930 and 1520's are. Give em a little time. It's a nice phone with great camera in the meantime.

    The difference between the 830 & 930/1520, is that this phone was marketed with the Denim printed on it and also was featured when they talked about the Lumia Camera app. It would be a total different story if we were only waiting for the Lumia Camera app update but it is not. We are waiting to have the real Denim update and now it is in our carrier's hands which sometimes is not a good situation.
