Nokia Camera app is known for its best features and performance and the implementation of Pro Camera mode on Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 lets users take even better photos by letting them adjust shooting parameters manually. Nokia 8 Pro Camera mode is now ported for other Android phones, including other Nokia phones that don’t have pro camera function. Here is how to download and install Nokia Pro Camera on your phone.

The Camera2 API introduced with Android Lollipop enabled developers to create camera apps that can control the sensor, lens, white balance, shutter speed, flash, and other areas of the camera. The Nokia Pro Camera mode can be installed on any phone, if it supports Level 3 Camera API.



The Nokia Pro Camera allows you to manually adjust camera shutter speed, focus, ISO, white balance and camera exposure, like in a professional DSLR camera. It means you can adjust your shooting parameters to take a better shot.
