I was ready to jump to the iPhone 5 when I read wpcentral's latest article about the 920's camera. It's true, post-processing can help a GREAT deal.
In fact, as a photographer, I make sure I process all of my photos from my DSLR - why not from my phone?
It's a hassle sometimes, but totally worth it, I think.

Let me state up front that I admit - my iPhone 4 over-saturates pictures.
But when comparing pictures with it and the 920 indoors, the 920 is CLEARLY clearer but the iPhone's colors are CLEARLY better. Like I said, I know it's over-saturating but the 920 under-saturates a TON. I've yet to take any pics out in the bright outdoors yet. I hope this can be fixed with a patch (and soon - I only have so many days to return the phone to AT&T). But the camera is 90% of the reason I got the phone and 90% of Nokia's marketing for this phone.

My comparison shot between iphone4, 920 @ 4:3 and 920 @ 16:9 aspect ratio. All phones were copied off the respect phone and then manually uploaded to skydrive with no compression.
Lumia920 4:3 Aspect Ratio:
Lumia920 16:9 Aspect Ratio:
This wasn't the best test, but it was a quick one. At original size, the iphone looks better to me than both of the Lumia920 shots.

Does anyone have both a 920 and an iPhone 5 handy to compare shots?

I posted a couple of macro pics a few pages back and I was decently happy with them.

Something is definitely being lost in translation. Pictures look best on my phone (not just because of the screen).. then as pictures/files saved on my computer.. then least as good when viewing directly from SkyDrive. What's going on?
Also, the mild bluryness I see in the pictures on my computer is NOT present when viewing the pictures on my phone.

I'm seeing at least some decent photos on here, but my camera is taking horrible pictures no matter what the lighting situation is. Are others having issues no matter low light or lots of natural light? I double checked that I didn't have protective film on the lens and cleaned any smudges from it. It just won't take a crisp image, text is blurry on objects no matter how close or far and I tried the different settings, let it focus and lighting combinations. I took pictures of my city's landscape today that were blurry, but I knew that was expected with the daylight issue. I'm thinking my camera may be completely faulty. Attached is picture I tried to focus on a candle in front of me (this is one of the worst ones).
