I've noticed this very recently. After updating to Amber, I found that there are drastic changes in photo quality. When I take a photo, it previews it for about 2 sec and then gets saved to Camera Roll. While the previewed image looks good and matches the view, the one getting saved is not the same. I noted that most photos I take are getting blurred and tinted with green inside Camera Roll. I don't know why this happens as the image looks perfectly on preview. At first, I thought it was a problem with Pro Camera app but later found that the same happens for the default Camera app too.
To prove this, I took screenshots of preview and made 3 side by side comparisons. They are given below and you can notice the change in colors and the sharpness between the preview and the original.
Again, I'm not sure whether this is a problem with Amber. I have never felt the photos being altered before and this is the first time I'm starting to notice these issues. I already googled and found a thread here but that wasn't very relevant. Moreover, I want to confirm whether this is a bug or not. So, can someone please tell me if this is just me thinking weirdly or is it actually a problem with the camera SW?
Note:- I've already posted a detailed post on my blog and I hope this helps for a detailed explanation to the problem I'm having: Camera bug in Lumia 920 after Amber
Updated 29th September: Two more pics added. The second one was taken from another thread in WPCentral. I took it cause it made the problem very clear.
Updated 19th September: Here are the links to other threads on WPCentral mentioning the same problem. The first one has more comments and pics for your eyes to see.

Even I am facing the same issue with nokia pro cam on my 920. The problem is due to a post processing software in pro cam. This bug keeps making me alternate between the default camera app and pro cam
I guess we have to wait for nokia to issue an update

Nah, I saw other threads too and I've commented there too. I admit that I was late. But since the activity paused at that thread, I thought I should post it in a bit more expanded manner. I've posted a thread at Nokia Discussions recently and I was notified of a firmware update but that didn't fix the issue.
Still, I'm curious that not a single major WP discussion area (like WPCentral) raised the issue. I've sent a few tips but no response. Many others tried too. I wonder why are they not posting about this. Anyway, I hope Nokia's en route to a fix.
P.S I mentioned the other threads at the beginning of my thread. Just to let you know that I was aware. ;)

I also installed Nokia Pro Cam on my Lumia 720 and found the same bug. Also photo quality has got worse after Amber Update. Photos clicked from default cam app are more noisy, blurry, less sharp than before the update and also yellowish. Low Light photos are like clicked from a 5 year old cam. All deep orange.
