Sharpness slider in Pro mode πŸ’‘ and other image processing sliders too! πŸ˜ƒ

Here's an idea I got from watching one of Steve Litchfield's phone reviews (it was a phone from another brand who are taking camera's more seriously than HMD at the moment πŸ˜‹).

In pro mode, please add a slider for sharpness

We all know that modern smartphone camera apps oversharpen the images so they look "better" on small displays. Well, for those of us that want a photo to look good on a large display or even in print and therefore want a purer image please add a way for us to reduce the sharpening effect which you apply. I think the most elegant way to do this would be to add a slider in pro mode.

You could also add other image processing sliders, for example for colour saturation. This would give photographers more creativity options at the point of capture rather than relying on post-processing. Post-processing will always be there for those who have the time and inclination to do that.

You could even extend this to videos... see, I've got you thinking now πŸ˜‰

Cheers πŸ™‚

    Hi @DibyaXP,

    Actually I'm not talking about Xperia or Samsung. I just heard an idea and translated it into how it would work in the Nokia "pro" camera app UI.

    Cheers πŸ™‚

    Nokia Camera lacks lots of manually set up things compared to others. I would like to see there is an option for sharpness (High, Medium, Low), etc which is related to images.
