    It is currently becoming pretty common for cell phones to have a wide field of view. This is really good for capturing pictures of landscapes and such... however, for portrait photography this can lead to very undesirable effects, especially as your subjects land up in higher fields of view.... given that I capture a lot of images of people with my 930, i was wondering if there is a profile or app that I can use to correct the lens distortion induced by the wide angle lens on the 930.... could not find good pointers on the net...

    Lightroom does this, its the app I use. Not aware of any phone apps that can do this. Perhaps the Adobe app available for WP?

    So lightroom has the lens profile for the 930?

    Hi!
    I often post photos taken with my DSLR, but I also need to correct the lens a bit as straight lines become a little bit "round".
    I found out this week that I can do this in the app Fhotoroom. It doesn't have a standard lenscorrection profile, but you can manually set how you want to correct the photo. It's under the "Pro" button.

    I know it's probably not that useful to the everyday Joe or Jane.... but given how the Lumia top line is aimed at photography enthusiasts, it would have been nice for the inbuilt camera to have the option of applying lens distortion correct while shooting images itself.... yes, you can use simple apps to rectify things but you can't beat applying the correct profile - automatically!! But as I said, may not be something that users realize but it's definitely useful.... tomorrow XYZ company (great at marketing) will apply this and sell it as the next best thing since sliced bread... again.

    Definitely something I've noticed on phones I've used recently (Lumia 920, 1020 and 930; iPhone 5s). My "solution" has just been to shoot a little wider than I need, then use the Reframe option in Lumia camera to crop. Obviously that's not a great solution.

    Hello! I've been looking for a LCP for my 930 for a long time and since I couldn't find one I decided to make it my self, here you go: http://1drv.ms/1O6HKgQ.
    I made it using this instructions:How to make a lens correction profile for your smartphone | Pocketnow

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers.

    Actually the new Photos app in Windows 10 has an auto correction for this built in. When you auto-correct a picture it also corrects distortion.

    Yes but the point here is to work with DNGs so you can do your processing on the desktop using lightroom, camera raw, rawtherapee, etc
