    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 have attached the photo from the other night so you can see what I'm talking about too.

    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.

    Well, I guess yours is better than mine, at least this one. I went to a concert last night, and almost every photo I took were like... there was a blue filter on my lens. More than that, I was not even able to focus the stage several times, no matter I took it with the camera button or trying to focus with touching the screen.

    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?

    It seems to vary. Sometimes it is greenish, other times it is bluish. I think it really depends on your source lighting. Incandescent bulbs have a stronger bluish tint to them.

    I believe it is software as other camera apps don't seem to have that problem, at least as bad. On the other hand, the other camera apps don't give access to all the features and controls.

    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.

    that's a problem with all Windows Phones. so far I've not seen any manufacturer correct it out of the OS except for maybe Samsung. Microsoft needs to fix that in 7.8.

    Wow, I actually just went over to my SkyDrive and looked through some pictures I took using my HTC Arrive and sure enough, some of them have the pink dot as well. The pink dot effect doesn't seem to be as conspicuous but it's definitely there. Unreal. I wonder if HTC fixed this with the Titan II, since everyone raves about its camera.

    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.

    I heard they are updating the Camera.

    You just have to wait until October/November. The update will be called v.WP8 and requires you to ditch your phone.

    Have you tried running pictures through the built in auto fix? It is very effective, bordering on miraculous, at saving almost unusable pictures. If I could figure out how to put up pics in here I would show you some samples from my HD7, infamous for its poor camera.

    I'd recommend using Nokia's Creative Studio app or another photo editing app like Thumba. I find that using the built-in auto correct adds a lot more grain to pictures.

    The Lumia 900 doesn't have a fantastic camera, period. Sure, some people have snapped some great shots, but that doesn't speak to the overall quality of the sensor itself.

    Did you take those photos yourself, Windowsphone7? No. You posted images taken by a professional photographer who has years of experience with digital photography and knows how to tweak an image to get the best results. You're so quick to judge others - where are some examples of pictures you've taken with the Lumia 900?

    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.

    The pics:

    Lumia 900


    Evo 4G LTE


    Any responses?

    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.

    You can check them all out here:

    Yeah, notice how the one taken indoors has absolutely NO detail in the darker areas and the last one with the shadows in the trees again have no detail as the camera just leaves it black.

    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.

    Enough said! You can clearly shut everyone up with this simple comparison! If I need to spend 3 minutes on manual settings to get a decent picture, then how about I hand crack the phone to charge its battery?
