Microsoft to enable 4k video on several phone via firmware update


Recommended Posts

It looks like some Nokia Lumia owners are going to be in for a 4K treat. It doesn't seem like it is a continuous recording mode but if you can do 10 second clips that's all I need.

Berlin, Germany – This morning Microsoft has announced Lumia Denim as the next firmware for Lumia handsets. This update will bring Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 to retail phones in addition to firmware features unique to Lumia. Look forward to improvements for Lumia Camera and more.

Lumia Denim cements Microsoft's leadership in mobile imaging. Look forward to the following features coming in Lumia Denim for handsets like the Lumia 930, Lumia Icon and Lumia 1520:

Speed: Never miss a moment with Lumia Camera and its fast camera startup and capture speeds. Take numerous photos with just milliseconds between shots.
High definition: Using Moment Capture, a long press of the camera button within the app automatically starts 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second. Each frame is of high image quality at 8.3 megapixels, allowing every single video frame to be selected and saved as a still image.
Intuitiveness: Get the best shot every time with Rich Capture, which simplifies picture-taking with auto HDR and Dynamic Flash. With Rich Capture, people can avoid the hassle adjusting camera settings; they can shoot first and edit and select the perfect shot later.
Quality: Capture high-quality smartphone images in low light with the latest-generation imaging algorithms.
Look forward to Lumia Denim rolling out to the Lumia 930, Lumia Icon and Lumia 1520 in Q4 2014. It'll then come to the Lumia 830 in that same time frame as an over-the-air update. Additional handsets will get Lumia Denim after partner testing and approvals.




Nice to see a phone company expanding video features through a free firmware update. It's amazing that a phone that launched for less than $100 on contract last year will get 4k for free. I wish Apple would take a page from Microsoft's book instead of making people pay through the nose for basic features tons of other phones have. I mean am I to understand you have to pay $300 ON CONTRACT just to get the only iphone that has an HD screen? Terrible.  And still no microSD expansion slot?
