Nokia Releases Refocus Camera App for PureView Phones
Nokia today made its Refocus application available to its Lumia PureView smartphones. Refocus, which Nokia announced last month, is similar to Lytro in that it allows owners to adjust the focal point in an image after the picture has been taken to change the depth of field. The app makes use of Scalado's imaging technology, which Nokia acquired in 2012. The app is compatible with the Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 925, Lumia 928, and Lumia 1020 - as long as the Amber system update is already installed. Refocus is free to download from the Windows Phone Store.
