I know they can't do anything about the lack of a BSI sensor. I'm talking about things like the blue tint issues. My camera has a HORRIBLE blue tint if I'm in just about any kind of low light; primarily where the light source is anything except sunlight or close enough for the flash (and not always then) basically. It is related to the white balancing. I took a picture the other evening by street light. It should have, if anything, been an orange tint. Instead everything looked like it had been taken through a strong blue filter.

If you're having concerns, I'd go straight to Nokia and ask them. I don't know if anyone here can really answer this question because no one here really knows when the next round of updates will come out and what exactly those updates would address.
Nokia Support Discussions - Nokia with Windows Phone - Nokia Support Discussions
They have an active forum that your concerns may be more appropriatly addressed in.

There is something wrong with your phone. Get it replaced. I have none of your problems. All you've got to do is check out the pictures thread on this forum to see just how great the pictures this phone takes can be, if you use it correctly (and/or your phone is not broken). Yeah, get it replaced.

I think that's a software issue. I went through 3 handsets due to various issues, and they all did this when I tried it. My 2nd handset seem to do it less, it was a green dot, but it still did it. To me it's more of a green tint than a blue tint, and only noticable in low light conditions. I think it's over aggressive white balancing post processing. You can notice it a little bit in good light sometimes too. Hoping they do something about it.

I hope it is a software issue as everyone said, and it seems like. But just like you said, are they gonna try to fix it?

I've posted it here on the Nokia forum link techygeek82 gave me. No one has replied yet so feel free to chime in and bump it.

Ok everybody... the L900 DOES have a pretty terrible camera. It makes everything A LOT darker than it should.
But blue tint? Yeah there is something wrong there. I would definitely think about exchanging it for another L900 if you are dedicated to that device.
Just saying that if you really want a WP7 device that takes great pix then the L900 is not the WP7 device for you.

Here are two pictures I took tonight using the default settings. One picture was taken using my Lumia 900, and one picture was taken using an Evo 4G LTE. Both times I unlocked the device, opened the camera, and took a picture using the default settings.

I have been able to take some decent photos with my Lumia 900 and all the following photos are how they typically come out for me. I did change the default settings and then I pretty much left them alone. On rare occasions I will need to adjust those settings.

I just don't know if it's being a blind fanboy or what but it's a known fact that the Lumia 900 has a pretty terrible camera.
You can talk about being an 'amateur' all you want but a 'pro' should not be relying on his Nokia cell-phone to take pictures lol. Cell-phones are meant to take a quick snap of something. Some phones are better than others. A 'pro' should have a REAL camera. Not sure why that's even a valid arguement for you, it makes you look silly if you are expecting your cell phone to take "pro" pictures.
Just deal with it, the L900 doesn't have a good camera for a smartphone.

Shouldn't need a degree in photography to take good pictures, especially when you don't need such knowledge when using other phones including other Windows Phones. Rather than glossing over the issue by talking down to those who don't know about light metering and such much better to acknowledge the faults and suggest settings that could help.
Yeah, the fanboyism on this site is getting ridiculous.
