Available since the end of last year for PureView devices, the Nokia Refocus app allows you to take Lytro-like (light field) pictures with your Nokia-made Windows Phone. The way the app achieves this is simple: it shoots a variety of consecutive frames with different focus settings, after which the user can simply tap on a part of the image to display that region in focus (hence using the proper frame from the burst).
The Finns today announced that the Nokia refocus app is now available for all Lumia smartphones that are powered by Windows Phone 8. “As we have seen with the great imaging apps like Nokia Camera before, lots of people have been asking for it and we responded. You spoke, we listened. Now anyone that owns a Lumia can enjoy the power and creativity of Nokia Refocus,” said Jens Eggert, Nokia’s Lead Program Manager for Refocus.
If you want to play around with the app on your Lumia Windows Phone and unleash your creativity, grab the Nokia Refocus app from the Windows Phone Store.
