EDIT: I noticed that pics are 1999 pixel width when some other pics shows 2000 pixels.

just quick "lower" light video, dark overcast clouds outside and only 1 window, phone makes it look brighter in room than what it really is.

Gives me more reason to believe this is a software issue!
For the 920 owners out there - Does it switch to macro automatically or there ir a macro mode?

Was at a small amusement park in Dallas where some family had a drag race. Figured it was a good opportunity for a 1080p camera test. I think the sun had just set, and it was very windy. You can seen the lens floating around a bit, and there's some interesting color fluctuation right at the end (switch to 1080p).

Also, my favorite photos so far... from a dive bar in the middle of Dallas.. From the roof, I managed to capture some stars while taking a picture of some hanging lights.. pretty impressive for being in the middle of a city :) Also a shot of the sun/sky before sunset yesterday.

That said, you need an 808.. I don't quite understand the "niche" product label, its a proper smartphone, and camera works as advertised.
The top 5 for daylight
1. Nokia 808 (huge margin)
2. Nokia N8
3. Samsung Pixon 12
4. iPhone 5
5. iPhone 4s/SE Satio
If nokia gets the jpeg processing right on the 920 in can easily be a top daytime camera.

So what is going on? Does skydrive crap picture quality or is jpeg-compression working in your pictures.

Blurry photos have resolution of 3552x2000 and file size strangely large for jpeg. Usually well over 2Mb and those pics are one that are uploaded to skydrive.
Sharp photos have resolution of 3550x1999,3551x1999 or 3552x1999 but width is always 1999. Those pics are not uploaded to skydrive and file size is usually well under 1Mb.
For me it looks like skydrive photos are actually 2 same photos combined to one photo and it is 1 pixel of from each other. That would explain large file size and 2000 pixel width.
So can we make conclusion that skydrive indeed craps your images? Could someone make comparison. Upload same photo to skydrive and then same one through PC and upload to it somewhere else but skydrive.

This was taken moments ago with the ISO set to 200 and the exposure to -1/3 stop. Autmatic upload to Skydrive and download to my pc. I resized it to be able to upload it. The sky is a hazy blue. Not real brilliant. I think that the image accurately depicted the subject.

emailing the pictures will result in half the pixels fyi. I think having the aperture on f2 all the time is what makes things look soft. Up close it will look great, but with nothing close to focus on, the picture comes out softer than we would like

I just compared skydrive pic to one transferred to my PC directly and the skydrive one is slighty softer with shadows more light. Not a huge difference, but definetly noticeable to me. And this is with my phone settings on best quality for sky drive
