Lumia Camera for Windows Phone Updated – But It’s Not The Update You Are Looking For

This morning I saw on my Store app on my Lumia 1320 there was an app update for Lumia Camera.  I was giddy as I thought it was the much anticipated version 5.0 of the app (even though my phone won’t be able to take advantage of some of the more cool features).  But alas, it is not version 5.0 but rather a bug fix update.  Everyone can take a breath now.
