    Odd; I noticed after upgrading to Denim official, the MS Camera is no longer on the app menu; I had it as a tile on my SS, so after restoring a backup, I still had it. But if you didn't, it seems the only way one could get to it would be to set it as the default camera app, then push the camera hardware button. Reminds me of how Nokia would yank the native maps from the menu, and people created tiles in the store that acted as shortcuts. With this update, native maps is in the menu, but now native camera is not. Anyone else see this?

    Yea, I noticed this too. Seems like Denim was focused on nothing but camera improvements and trying to "force" users to notice those changes.

    I'll play around with Lumia Camera and see how I like it. I hope the improvements are worth it enough that I won't even want to use Classic Camera anymore. I know before I did NOT want to use Here Maps over native maps.

    I'd love to hear what others think of the Classic Camera Vs. the new Lumia Camera on Denim. Pros and cons?

    Use Lumia Camera Classic.

    Before denim Lumia camera classic was introduced for the 830/930/icon/1520.
    And for all the other devices Lumia Camera.

    After Denim you got again Lumia Camera (but version 5.x).

    So now the old Camera app (Microsoft app) and the old Lumia camera app (version < 5) are not available anymore.

    Right, technically I have it too, it's there because I have a tile on my SS, but I do not have it in the apps list. Is yours there? I updated using the restore software.

    Very Interesting....wonder if that is the key difference between you having it and not me, though I also did an additional hard reset after the software recovery. You mean the one that just says "camera" right? It's in your apps list?

    It's actually not. I just get Lumia Camera, even though I can access it. Very odd. I have two Icons, both updated in the same manner, and both are missing native camera in the apps list.

    i'm still confused...sorry lol.

    so Lumia Camera Classic = Lumia Camera? Why did I have an app called simply Lumia Camera after the update that didn't work?

    The app is hidden, but its still in the system. Open your main phone settings, then swipe over to photos+camera. Under default camera app, choose Microsoft Camera. You can then launch it by pressing the camera hardware button.

    Right, I figured that too, it's just weird because a few other people DO still have it in their apps list. Seems it could be depending on if you updated OTA or recovery tool.

    Well, I always used the stock camera but I'm willing to switch if these improvements are really that much more. More just a curiosity of the omission...

    Did hard resets with a backup and a fresh start....both times resulting in no classic camera in the apps list but still available. Very weird.

    I also have Camera in the apps list (the Microsoft one). I can load it and it's working correctly.

    Also didn't do a clean install. Just the OTA update.

    Though there's little reason to go to the Microsoft one anymore as the Lumia Camera app is actually usable now (though I wish they added a tap to focus AND take a picture instead of having to tap a part of the screen (if I want off-centered focus) and then the on-screen picture-taking button. ProShot has that feature and it's pretty cool. Haven't played with the manual features yet of the new app (don't even know if they're there still) but the manual features of ProShot was much more accessible and easier to use than the older Lumia Camera app (sure, the sliders look cool but the UI was sluggish and if you're used to DSLR adjustments, the sliders kind of suck).

    Evidently, the previous version of Lumia Camera had different scene modes. However, Microsoft Camera still has them though. Me I can live without them. LC5 is pretty kick **** if you ask me.

    You have to search for it in the store app on the phone.

    The reason being :

    Microsoft camera functions as a point and shoot camera....the app loading speed is fast and time to save photos is also less.

    Lumia Camera functions as a photography enthusiasts camera.....you take your time to change the settings and capture that artistic photo.
