The new Camera Extras is now available for everybody. Cinemagraph is already available for Nokia Lumia 900, 800 and 710 smartphones. However, Gitahi assured Nokia Lumia 610 and 510 customers that it will also be ready for them in the coming weeks.

According to Gitahi, Cinemagraph is like a piece of Hollywood magic in your pocket that lets you bring your pictures to life by animating a part of the picture. When combined with the great new features on Windows Phone 7.8, Nokia Lumia will feel like a new phone with a wealth of new experiences to play with.
Cinemagraph also allows Nokia Lumia users to share these great images on their favourite social media sites like Twitter and Facebook using the memories.nokia.com site.
The other feature being introduced is the Camera Extras app, which offers Smart Shoot, Panorama, Action Shot and a self-timer. The updated version uses burst mode to take a sequence of photos so you can choose your favorite shot and then remove unwanted objects.
“With these UI improvements, it really feels more like the Smart Camera found in our Windows Phone 8 range. We hope our customers will enjoy these new features as we continue to bring new experiences for all Nokia Lumia owners,” he said.
