Nokia Refocus comes to revolutionize mobile photography

Nokia has released its Refocus app in the Windows Phone app store. The app captures a series of images (2-8 to be precise) with different focus points and then allows you to create the coveted selective focus effect of large-sensor cameras.

In order to get the app you’ll need to own a PureView Lumia (920, 925, 928 or 1020 quality) with the Amber software update installed. The Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet will be joining the list, too, once it hits the shelves.

We’ve already seen what the Refocus app can do but here is an example – click to focus on the image below. Or you can check out more examples here.

The app lets you share to Facebook (with interactive viewing in the News Feed), SMS and Email and automatically uploads the images to SkyDrive. If you want a fully focused image the Nokia Refocus app let’s you do that too, along with adding a Colour pop effect, which will leave only the selected color intact and convert the image to black and white.

You can get the app for free over at the Windows Phone store.
