Lumia Denim update is rolling out to Lumia 830 owners in Canada

lumia 830The major firmware update to Lumia devices, called Lumia Denim, has been rolling out world-wide to many phones and carriers for a couple of months now. Although Microsoft has promised to deliver the update to eligible devices in all markets by the end of February, many North American Lumia owners are still patently waiting.

According to WindowsCentral, Lumia 830 owners in Canada are widely reporting that they are now able to download and install Lumia Denim on their devices. Reports indicate the update is available for the device on all major carriers including Rogers and Bell.

The update brings OS version number to 8.10.14234.375 and the firmware version number is 02040.00021.15063.02001.

Microsoft hasn’t announced they are pushing the update to Lumia 830 in Canada but we expect to get the official confirmation shortly. It is worth noting that Lumia 830 owners in the U.S. are still waiting for their Denim update, perhaps this is a precursor to the massive U.S. roll-out to the popular Windows Phone.

Lumia Denim brings some major improvements to the Windows Phone 8.1 OS including “Hey Cortana” feature as well as enhancements to the Lumia Camera app experience  HDR, Dynamic flash and much more.

[UPDATE – FEB 25] Lumia Denim rolls out world-wide, here's the most up-to-date list of countries & devices to get it

Microsoft_more_lumia_Denim_600[Update – February 25, 2015] We have just updated the list to bring the Lumia Denim availability up to date, world-wide. The list below is pretty big now that we’re nearing the end of February as Microsoft has promised they will push the firmware update to all eligible devices in all markets by end of the month. We’re still awaiting the big push in North America and some more devices in Asia and Europe. Stay tuned as we keep the tally going!

Original article (December 29, 2014) – It’s only been three months since Lumia Cyan rolled out world-wide and Microsoft has been hard at work since then developing and testing a new wave of Lumia firmware updates known as Lumia Denim.

In an official blog post today, Microsoft confirms the Lumia Denim update push is currently under way “rolling out to a limited number of devices in selected markets, and will continue arriving in waves by device.” Speculations are circling that most of Europe and North America will get the large OS update in early 2015 while Microsoft carefully executes the update push in smaller markets.

According to Microsoft, aside from Cortana, live folders, SMS merging and many other improvements and fixes, there are some very important imaging enhancements coming with Lumia Denim. Here is the list of key camera updates you can look forward to:

A faster and more intuitive Lumia Camera app. The app will deliver images of the highest quality at the fastest speed, allowing you to capture multiple photos with just milliseconds between shots.

Moment Capture. This feature provides the quickest and easiest way to capture memories in high definition. A long press of the camera button automatically starts 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second. With each frame at 8.3 megapixels, you can save individual frames as high-quality still images. Due to hardware differences, Lumia 830 shoots Moment Capture in Full HD, not 4K, and with reduced 2-megapixel per frame quality.

Rich Capture. This simplifies picture taking with auto HDR, Dynamic Flash and Dynamic Exposure. Avoid the hassle of adjusting camera settings and focus on capturing the moment: Shoot first, edit and select the perfect shot later.

Latest imaging algorithms. Capture even crisper photos in daylight or low light, with our latest generation of imaging processing algorithms.

So far Lumia Denim has been released for many devices in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and North America. Here is the latest list of devices by country which have the Lumia Denim update available for installation.

Microsoft rolling out Lumia Denim in India to Lumia 820, 920 and 925

The newest Lumia firmware update that brings the faster Lumia Camera app, 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second as well as auto HDR rich capture is now rolling out in India to many Lumia devices.

This is line with Microsoft’s promise to update all eligible Windows Phone 8.1 devices to Lumia Denim, world-wide by the end of this month.

Although theses devices will not be capable of the 4K rich recording feature due to their out-dated CPU’s, they will still have the rest of the features available in Lumia Denim.  The Lumia 820, 920 and 925 are some of the devices in India that are getting Lumia Denim starting today. Microsoft has already rolled out the update in this country to Lumia 520, 525, 535, 620, 720 and 1020.

Many Lumias in India including the Lumia 625, 630, 1320 and 1520 are still on Cyan, but we’re expecting these will also get the Denim update in the coming days.

Watch how fast Lumia Camera app starts up with Lumia Denim update installed

www.public-domain-image.com (public domain image)As Lumia Denim update is pushed to a select number of devices across the globe, users are reporting some pretty significant performance improvements, particularly when it comes to the Lumia Camera app start-up time.

This was one of the key enhancements Microsoft has promised to introduce with Lumia Denim and we now have two videos comparing the Camera app start-up times between Denim and Cyan.

The difference is rather significant, especially when the Denim-equipped Lumia 1520 is pitted against the Lumia 1020 with Cyan – have a look.

Lumia 1020 (Cyan, WP 8.1) vs. Lumia 1520 (Denim, WP 8.1 Update 1)

Lumia 930 (Cyan, WP 8.1 Update 1) vs. Lumia 1520 (Denim, WP 8.1 Update 1)

We expect Microsoft will roll out the big update to everyone over the next several weeks as right now only a small number of phones in select European, Asian and South American countries have received it. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted.

Lumia Denim brings 4K recording, significant camera enhancements, Cortana passive voice and more

Windows_Phone

Microsoft announced a new firmware update for existing Lumia devices called “Lumia Denim”.  This is a significant firmware update that will bring many innovative features to  Microsoft’s smartphones.

Performance:

The first and one of the most important features that Lumia Denim brings is the improved speed in camera behaviour.  Lumia Camera (AKA Nokia Camera) would usually take a lengthy period of time to launch, not something you want when trying to capture a moment that’s time sensitive. In addition, because of the oversampling taking place after a photo is taken, (this happens with Lumia 930/Icon,1020,1520) there’s a delay of 2-3 seconds between photos.

Microsoft noted that Lumia Denim will squeeze out every bit of processing power on the hardware it’s on-to make this app run quicker in every way possible.

4K video capture

Another great feature that Lumia Denim will bring is the 4K HD moment capture, which lets you select frames of the 4K video you just took to make photos out of them.  Pressing and holding the camera button for about a second just a second will start to record 4K video at 24 frames per second, each of the 24 frames in 8+ megapixels so it’s easy to find the image you want in HD quality.

Imagine yourself taking a picture of your kids first steps for about 5 minutes (5 minutes continuous filming is about the max you can work this feature), there will definitely be a memorable image in there  that would  normally be hard to get. This feature will not come to the Lumia 1020 and older devices.

Rich Capture

There is also a new feature called rich capture, this will have the camera  adapt to the scenario and will bring  HDR and dynamic flash,  this will enable you to pick the best image after you take the shot by being able to adjust low light and photos taken with flash in an incredible and intuitive way.  With Rich Capture, people can avoid the hassle adjusting camera settings; they can shoot first and edit and select the perfect shot later.

Cortana passive voice

Cortana’ s passive voice  is a feature many Windows Phone users have wanted, and Denim will enable it.  Just say: HEY CORTANA, and she will respond.  Sadly, Lumia Denim will not bring this feature to  the Lumia 920 and 1020 due to them running on last gen processors.

Image quality improvements

Lumia Denim will significantly enhance the image quality on existing Lumia devices, especially in low light scenarios with the latest-generation imaging algorithms.

Unfortunately all of the goodies that will be part of Lumia Denim will not coming to every Lumia.  Only the Lumia Icon/930 and 1520 will have all features enabled.

Lumia Denim will be available in late 2014, to devices such as the Lumia 830, 930/Icon and 1520.  While other devices may have to wait a bit longer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lumia ups the ante on mobile camera technology – again

Lots of new and exciting announcements going on at IFA in Berlin. Among them, for cell phone camera lovers, is the news that while Nokia’s handset business may have been bought by Microsoft, that doesn’t mean they have slackened off their commitment to one of their greatest strengths, their imaging technology.

The cell phone world has never really recovered from the shock of Nokia’s Purview technology, and the incredible capabilities of the Flagship Lumia 1020 which are unrivalled over a year after its launch-remain the high water mark of cell phone camera technology and performance.

Go ahead Sammy, Fruity, show us your hole card.
Go ahead Sammy, Fruity, show us your hole card.

Neither Samsung nor Apple are launching anything this year to equal the Purview technology available today on Lumia phones, but that doesn’t mean Microsoft is sitting on its laurels, no sir.

Microsoft announced in Berlin that this fall the camera technology on all new and recent Lumias will be updated in the fourth quarter of 2014 (for recent and new phones) and via an OTA Update in early 2015 for the remaining.

The mechanism will be a combination of the upcoming Lumia “Denim” update, and a completely new Lumia Camera App. This App has been completely re-written, from the ground up, to be much faster than the existing App, even the one we just received courtesy of the Cyan update.

The major improvements in speed come in the area of App opening and the time to first capture.  This has been greatly reduced, and will be further reduced using a clever trick described below.  The other major change, and its a big one, is that the image processing and capture activities have been split apart.  Previously a lot of image processing had to take place before the next image could be captured, which slowed down the entire process.  In the new camera App, image capture is unaffected by image processing activity, so capture can proceed at the speed of the hardware, while processing goes on in the background as fast as its software will permit.

The result is a rapid start up, and millisecond capture times between shots.  A great improvement that will increase the chance of getting that ‘perfect’ shot when you see it!

"Please say you got that shot!"
“Please say you got that shot!”

Another enhancement to getting the first shots taken quickly is “Moment Capture/HD Capture”.  These are the same thing, just implemented with different resolutions on various handsets as their hardware will allow.  The idea is that a long press on the camera button without the camera App running will bypass loading the Camera App and instead start immediate filming in hi res video at 24 fps. Capable handsets will capture up to 4k resolution, and others in HD, but each frame will be savable as a seperate image.  Another great way to very quickly capture the unexpected when it arises!

There will also be a “Rich Capture” mode that incorporates both HDR and dynamic flash output to capture a range of brightness levels.  Many of you have been using HDR Apps for years, but this would bring that capability to the larger number of Users who don’t want to use multiple Camera Apps.  A great option that increases the chance of getting the perfect shot, even in challenging lighting conditions.

And as always seems to be the case with Lumia’s, the algorithms have been rewritten to provide yet another boost to their already best in the world low-light performance.

Good news for new device owners, this will first be released as an update for the Lumia 930, Icon and the 1520, as well as an OTA update for the Lumia 830, all in Q4, 2014.

And for us legacy device Owners, the Camera App will roll out along with the “Lumia Denim” update in early 2015 – subject to Carrier testing and approval.
