Like the original poster said in a comment, the information on FileInfo hasn't been updated to take Windows Phone cameras into consideration. .nar: Like Thomas answered, the *.nar files are basically renamed *.zip files that include extra pictures, photo data, etc, and are related to Lumia Refocus and Rich Capture. .thm and .tnl: These two files are ...

Unfortunately the Bing Vision feature has been removed from Windows 10 Mobile for now. There's currently no official statement from Microsoft whether it will be added later or not. There are already several requests to bring back Bing Vision in the Windows Feedback app you might want to vote for. Until then you would have to use a 3rd party app from the ...

Those are files created by the Lumia camera app to provide certain features that are not possible with standard jpeg files. While the .thm and .tnl files are simple preview files for your movies (the small image you see in your pictures folder) the .nar includes things like living images or the data to refocus your picture. You can open the .nar like a ...

Note: The answer below assumes you're using the Nokia Camera app. Most of it should also apply to the regular Camera app, except the part about manual focus controls. Tapping on the screen selects that point of the scene for automatic focus and exposure adjustment - the camera app will make sure the point you tapped is in focus and properly exposed (i.e. ...

According to this you can't zoom through official camera app on Lumia 535. Unfortunatelly Microsoft Lumia 535 and Lumia 535 Dual SIM phones don’t support zoom in/out when taking pictures with the default camera application. Some of the 3rd party camera apps may support this functionality but the picture quality will suffer when zooming in as the device ...

Samsung Focus does autofocus in the center when you press half the dedicated camera button. Some people can't do this because you need to press very soft and see the square on the screen. This is what you want?

I found a way to fix that. If you try to restart the phone (or remove batter) u will notice that this message "Saving..." will continue to be issue. But if you make a soft reset/restart (will NOT delete data on your phone), for example for my Lumia 930 is press & hold Power + Volume down buttons - wait 10 seconds - and the phone will restart, this ...

Mine has had the same thing since very soon after I got it, and it's at the same angle. I think it's by design. It's weird-looking, I'll grant you that; if it's a lens cover thing, I'd expect it to be in the middle, not off-center like that. I found a few close-up pictures with the lens cover closed, and I think it's definitely just the way it's designed: ...

That's probably the focus assist feature, which uses the flash before actually taking the picture, to focus the scene. To disable this in the default Camera app: Expand the app bar by tapping on the three dots Select "photo settings..." Set "Focus Assist Light" to "Off" In the Nokia Camera app: Expand the app bar by tapping on the three dots Select "...

This is what you can try: Remove and reinstall the Nokia Camera app Check if you have enough free space (like Nisha said) Do a soft reset If that doesn't work, try a hard reset if that doesn't work and you don't necessarily need the Preview, use the Nokia Software Recovery Tool to revert to the latest stable version

They will have the privacy setting of the OneDrive folder where they are stored there. Windows Phone creates a folder called "SkyDrive camera roll" "Camera Roll" in OneDrive where automaticaly uploaded photos go. Depends the language you choose this folder can has another name. By default the folder is not shared and OneDrive will warn you if you attempt ...

There are three places that I could find to make adjustments that relate to camera functionality on my DVP. Settings -> Applications tab -> Puctures + Camera Pictures -> ... (on the bottom) -> Settings Camera app -> Options icon The third option seems to be the most relevant for my issue. Flash ISO gain White Balance Scene mode Metering mode Exposure ...

When the camera is running, use the cog icon in the app bar to bring up the menu. Scroll about half way through and you should see Resolution with the current option. Tap that and you can change the resolution.

If you're referring to the "share..." menu for 3rd party applications, it's completely up to the individual application if it'll compress the data prior to it being shared or not. However, if you're referring to the automatic upload to OneDrive, you can configure it from settings. See the following screenshots: ("Best quality" is uncompressed)

You need to specify in your camera settings to capture a 5MP + 38MP image, as @Thomas says, by going into your camera app, and setting the "Camera Mode" option to JPEG (5MP) + DNG (34MP). This takes two images: a 5MP version that is shown to you on the phone, and is what is uploaded to Onedrive if you have that option enabled, and a 38MP version that is ...

According to this forum thread, it doesn't look like it's possible to disable the 'Camera shutter' sound when using the HTC 8X on Telstra... http://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Windows-Phones/HTC-8x-camera-shutter-sound/td-p/175144 Note: If you were able to flash the phone with an unbranded firmware (ie. not Telstra) then the option to disable the '...

Get yourself a copy of Proshot from the app store and use it to drive the camera and that will allow you to set the image size as well as load of other features... sizes go from 640 by 480 (.3MP) up to 3246 by 2448.

If you are using Nokia Lumia device then you can go for the Camera Extras app developed by Nokia itself. I have installed it and works very well with some other features too.

In the Lumia Camera app (formerly known as Nokia Camera) you can set the resolution it the settings menu. (Screenshot taken with Lumia 930)

Microsoft recently (in July 2016) added this functionality to the Windows Camera app. It works the same way as in iOS - you hold the phone (or tablet, since Camera is a UWP app) vertically and slowly rotate it to the right. The feature should be available as an app update (version 2016.715.21.0) to all devices running Windows 10 Mobile, and shows up as an ...

Lumia phones (at least high-end ones like the 920) have a sensor that supports multiple aspect ratios. The full resolution of the sensor on the Lumia 920 is 3552x2448, which works out to just about 8.7 megapixels, but that full resolution is never used. When you set the camera app to take pictures in 4:3 aspect ratio, the full height of the sensor is used, ...

I found the answer to my own question, so I'm sharing it with others who might have a similar problem: I reset my phone in Settings -> About -> Reset phone and then updated the Windows Camera app and reinstalled the lens apps. The problem is now solved.

There's an app called Turbo Camera that will take a very large burst of shots very quickly, and gives you options on image resolution from 640x480 through to much larger. Once you've got your stream of photos, you can either save individual frames, or whole sections to the camera roll, and can then take them off the phone for processing in ICE at your ...

It is not currently possible. I believe this is due to not being able to write high resolution images to flash memory and track smoothly at the same time. The application may also run out of memory when stitching and blending high resolution images.
