I just want to get some first hand reports on the image quality in low light. Some people said it doesn't do so well after the update. I'd like to hear your experiences. I haven't updated yet, and if the image quality really isn't good, then I may not update at all.
I'd love it if people can post up some low light shots (and definitely some with no flash).
Also, I've heard that it really affects video quality in Skype calls. Has anyone else noticed this?

Well I'm not sure if its the gdr2 pr the amber that affects the photo quality. If it is gdr2, I don't think there's anything u can do about it. However, if it is the amber, then I think a hard reset will tae care of that. Once u hard reset, just don't update the Nokia system apps. That should keep it pre-amber, if I a not mistaken.

A hard reset just keeps the software that's there it doesn't remove it, just like if you did a hard reset before you installed Amber, that pre Amber software was still there.
My phone came with Firmware version 1532.2108.1242.2001 when I updated to V. 1532.5951.1250.1004 and did a hard reset/factory restore it still had V. 1532.5951.1250.1004

Hmm, interesting. When I started experiencing battery drain issues after updating to amber, I performed a hard reset. Actually, I performed 4 total hard resets in all. And each time, the new features that came with amber were no where to be found. And even under extras+info it no longer said 'amber'. It was only after I had updated those Nokia systems apps did those other features return. That was my experience though.

I've had success contacting Nokia here
if you can stand communicating with only 140 characters, these techs listen and help -we all need to bombard them with this issue
and they won't get back right away but just keep tweeting the same issue over and over and they will get back.

I had good luck when I forced the ProCam app onto my 810. I liked it because I could see how images looked before clicking the shutter. Granted I had to be careful not to exceed certain settings (iso, etc.) that were out of range of the 810's capabilities. But the app let me know because the settings would turn red, so it wasn't difficult.
I haven't had a Skype call since the update, so I can't say if there is an issue on my phone. But I will admit that in the preview mode right now in low light settings, things don't look very good, grainy and colors are off. But if I just take a picture, in auto no flash, the final images are good.
I haven't put the app back on, because another continuing experiment. I plan on putting it back on my phone in a couple days
