Nokia Panorama app adds support for portrait capture mode

Published by at

Nokia has updated its Panorama camera lens app to version 3.0, adding support for portrait orientation in capture mode, making it possible to capture panoramas with more height. The number of photos that can be combined together is the same as in landscape mode, so panoramas captured in portrait mode will also be narrower.

The new version is a relatively minor update, but the addition of portrait support does make the app more flexible and makes it easier to capture certain subjects (e.g. buildings and other urban scenes).


Panoramas captured in portrait orientation mode will have an aspect ratio similar to that of a capture from the standard camera app in landscape orientation. However, the capture from the Panorama app will be at a significantly higher resolution (e.g. 6344 x 3422 [21.7MP] versus 3552 x 2000 [7.1MP] on the Lumia 925), potentially capturing more detail.

Windows Phone Store description:

In this latest release you can capture more height by simply using the camera in portrait mode.

Panorama is a free download for Lumia devices from the Windows Phone Store.
