Ifa: Microsoft phones get flash trick for low light snaps

Microsoft's Lumia smartphones are getting a new feature designed to improve the quality of photos taken in low-light settings.

The facility automatically takes two photos in quick succession, one with a flash and one without.

Software then merges the two shots into a single image for which the user can adjust the amount of illumination via an on-screen slider bar.

The BBC's Dave Lee talked about the new feature with Kristina Bjorknas, senior experience marketing manager at Microsoft.
