    The default Microsoft Camera App vs. the Nokia Camera App (no pro cam app I can see, so I'm assuming this one has all the options) vs. 360 Camera App (I've heard/read good things)

    thoughts? does the Microsoft Camera App also save a high res photo (34 or 38 mp) alongside the 5 mp one?

    It's taken me all night to setup my Lumia 1020 exactly the way I want it :) now that I get to play with the camera, I'm going to try to compare shots. Now, I'm no camera pro, so I figured I'd post the question to you guys to see if any Lumia 1020 users who've upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1 (Developer Preview) have some practice in the field with these apps?

    Thanks in advance for your responses !

    Nokia Camera App and Nokia Pro App are the same. they just combined the nokia smart camera and pro cam into one cam app.

    Microsoft Camera App as far as I know doesn't shoot high res photo(Just tested it. no high res just 5mp ?)

    I have camera 360 but doesn't use it much though. I only use the Nokia Camera app. ProShot is also good :) shoots 12mp(10mp) + 38mp(34?)

    I use Nokia Camera (formerly called Nokia Pro Camera) and Nokia Camera Beta on my 1020. As far as I know, these are the only apps that can take the full res 34/38 or RAW/DNG images.

    Congrats! And welcome to the 1020 club btw!

    Proshot does save the high resolutions too :)

    I dont know if this just me or anybody ever had this issue . I have been using my L1020 since january and i seem to be having an issue . When i snap pictures with my lumia it all seem nice and good but when i have to compare the pics with pictures of same scene from my friends' L1020 devices there pictures are far better than mine with less noise when you zoom in and have tried to send this back to where i bought but they claim to see nothing wrong with the phone. And also on a side note my hardware keys seems to be a bit weak

    I made some test with the new nokia camera beta and nokia camera, and it seems that nokia camera beta has some modifications on the algorithm and the images looks sharper now.

    (full zoom)

    believe it or not but the Microsoft camera is now better and faster than the Nokia camera without the rezoom ability or the manual setting
    easier to lock the focus
