The new features after update allow users to capture pictures at a faster rate and include auto focus with dynamic flash. But the biggest change is the rich capture mode. Rich capture works by simply calculating the best mode to take your picture in, and it includes a slider at the end to change the HDR level both automatically and manually according to conditions whether it is day or night.

 

The 4 k video recording mode helps to capture video quickly and then save still 8.3-megapixel images. Lumia Denim build will make life easier for Nokia Lumia users who had to dig into manual controls in the old build.
