    It's not cheating. Even DSLR cameras use it to help the lens focus during low light situations. My Nikon D7000 uses it, for example.

    Interesting. Yeah I have seen that even on point and shoot cameras. I had no idea the 920 had something like that which is not part of the standard OS (at least not WP7).

    Please see my pics from the Halo 4 Launch night :) the outside ones were without auto assist light :)

    Just as everyone already said, the assist light is a feature found on professional DSLRs. It's PRO, not cheating. ;)

    The camera can't focus on a subject if it can't see it.. hence, assist light...

    Thanks for the info, looking good. :D

    Wasn't insinuating that the "auto focus assist light" is cheating, but at places where flash are strictly not allowed, try explaining to the people there that the "auto focus assist light" is not flash and see if they buy it. Anyway, looks good, was worried for a while that the picture will not turn up good without the "auto focus assist light" since most of the Nokia demo were taken with it. :happy:

    First pic is all auto, and is the settings you have all seen in most reviews.

    Second pic is night mode with +2 exposure. As you can see, low light shooting is even better on the 920 than we thought!

    Don't forget that those are downsized to 2Mpix, which is sufficient for internet sharing, but if you really want to see how the camera did you need to look at the original files @ 100%.. just saying, for "pixel peepers"..

    Otherwise, great photographs and nice colors for the most part.

    How are people getting sizes larger than 1280 x 720? I've taken about a dozen photos just to test the camera and EVERY SINGLE PHOTO is sized 1280 x 720.

    I don't understand why it's so small with no option to change.

    How are you transferring the photos off your phone?

    You are supposed to be able to upload to SkyDrive direct from the phone with full uncompressed pictures if on a wifi connection with the right setting.

    Still, you get much better sound recording and video recording. They say that they used the same mics they used in the 808, and if that is the case... its amazing what they can do, despite the fact that its mono..

    The OIS works very well during video.. much better than anything else on the market.
    That's wrong because my One X has great detail when blown up to 100% on my computer monitor.

    The Lumia 920 is lacking in detail so much it is not believable. I thought for sure it would have great pictures since Nokia has pretty much been hyping the camera and that's it. Then when I compare it to my One X it looks like rubbish.

    The pictures I took with the Lumia look worse than the pictures my S2 took.

    I so wanted the Lumia to take good pictures so I could stick with it, but it takes horrendous photos.

    Can you post some pics? Had the EVO LTE which is a One X, and its pics weren't too sharp.

    When I get home. I got frustrated with the Lumia, reset it and switched back to the One X. I'll take shots from the same exact spot so I can show side by side comparisons.

    Sounds good. I digged up a couple EVO LTE shots I took.

    HDR mode really helps the One X camera. I loved taking HDR shots with it.

    Looking forward to see all the 920 shots people are going to take. The Nokia camera update should be nice as well.

    got my lumia this morning and took a few photos :]







    im very impressed with the macro :] those bokeh look fantastic.
    pictures under daylight seem fine to me too. and I tried sticking my phone in my closet with just a little bit of gap for some light to go in. and the picture turns out so well. (I had the focus light off as well)
    I did the same with my Focus S, and the picture came out black. -v-;
