Nokia releases Cinemagraph for its older Lumia phones

Nokia introduced some cool photo apps when it launched its Windows Phone 8-based devices such as the Lumia 920 in 2012. Among the apps were the Cinemagraph app, which let its users create a brief animated clip inside part of the picture.

Today, Nokia announced that owners of its older Lumia Windows Phone 7.8 smartphones will be able to get the Cinemagraph app from the Windows Phone Store. It's available for free right now for owners of the Lumia 900, 800, and 710. People who have the Lumia 610 and 510 will be able to get the Cinemagraph "in the coming weeks."

At the same time, Nokia is also offering some updated Camera Extras apps right now for all older Lumia smartphones. Camera Extras were first introduced in June 2012. The new versions add the features that were first put into the Windows Phone 8 Lumia smartphones. That includes the burst mode, which lets users take a quick series of images. The app then allows users to not only pick the best shot in the sequence but also to quickly remove any unwanted part of the images, such as a person walking in the background.

The blog adds, "With UI improvements it really feels like the Smart Camera found in our Windows Phone 8 range." It also shows that owners of the first Lumia devices will eventually get some of the benefits of the newer Lumia smartphones.

This is great news. Developer support for WP7.8 is dwindling so it's nice to know that Nokia still cares about its customers with older devices.

not Nokia's Fault if you got nervouse and jumped from the platform, Nokia has always said it will continue supporting 7.8 for a long time
