    Viewing from my phone right now those look great. I've never had a phone take pictures worth "it" when it comes to fireworks.
    I am assuming you used night mode?

    Yeah, I know, me neither. Actually I left everything in auto-mode, except for the ISO setting which in my opinion gave the most realistic photos at 200.

    Very nice!!! Thanks for sharing ISO settings. Seems like night shots also work really well with ISO at 200.

    My New Year Eve pics by Lumia920

    I flashed my LM with the Portico update using NaviFirm (since the official Portico is not release in our region yet)

    I feel good with its quality now, and hope Nokia will keep on improving the camera quality ^ ^.

    Well, seems to me that S3's photos are the softer here. And actually much crappier, especially the two outdoor ones

    I don't understand why people are complaining about the camera, here are some random shots I took with my Lumia 920, all were on automatic mode with flash turned off:

    I believe one of my photos might pop up in a Microsoft Lumia 920 marketing presser.

    Coming from being a hardcore android forum guy it doesn't surprise me at all. Forums typically draw in more complaints then compliments. I guess it's the nature of forums ya?

    You described the issue I was complaining about to a tee. The camerapro app solved my issue. When things don't focus, I use the manual focus option in the app, works like a charm. I can also confirm that the manual focus on camerapro is able to get closer in macro type shots.
    That was it! Just needed the app to control focus myself. Now that I can do this for distance shots, I can get amazing shots in all conditions. Nevertheless, this must be a flaw in the camera, hopefully in software which can be fixed. Disappointing that this obvious flaw was allowed to ship. Daytime landscape pics are some of the most common people shoot.

    FYI, I chatted with Nokia support about this, and they claim to have never heard of the issue before. They did say that it would be passed along to management, and that further updates are coming, although they couldn't comment as to when.

    My night shots always look grainy when I put them on my laptop. They tend to look a lot better on the phone though. Why is that?

    Full auto, no flash/fill. Natural sunlight + incandescent overhead light. Straight out of the camera: no post-processing other than what Google+ does to them when I uploaded them. Black Lumia 920 purchased on launch day, Portico update. Originals + others can be found here: http://sdrv.ms/UjiQNr

    Night shots taken before I saw the point above about kicking down ISO. I believe I saw someone recommend a setting of 200. Will try that for future night shots.

    With out flash or focus assist light.

    Well I am complaining because I do not think Lumia 920 takes good pictures. Here are some of my examples, Pictures/Videos taken with your 920!
    look at my post "barareklam" woman with coctail in hand, and picture below taken with my 2 years old Nokia N8, face of a man, about same conditions, much much worse photos with my new Lumia 920. Do you now see why people complaining?

    Um, what? You've used FLASH with your N8, but have NOT used it with the Lumia 920. Of course the photo with flash firing will be "better" and "sharper", since there's simply more light and thus more information.

    That's not a fair comparison, and proves nothing at all (other than that you're intentionally giving your N8 an advantage and putting the Lumia down unfairly.)

    Flash did fired on both phones, look closely on womens glasses and you can see white spot, which is flash reflection. I am not putting Lumia down, why should I, I have both phones and both are Nokias.
    Please take a look at gsm arenas review, point green rectangle on left picture on girls eyes and you can be able to see what I am talking about, why I am dissaopointed wtih my new phone.

    Point it over to the grass and rocks section. Huge difference in detail. 920 has major focusing issues and we all need to just admit it. Not totally disappointed but just expected more. Nokia really needs to fix this fast. As of right now 808/i5 take the crown. 920 has some catching up to do behind some android heavy weights and the i5.

    Yes, off course I admitted it and also expected more.
    Even I have little problem with my camera now, I still hope that Nokia can beat the iPhone's camera as the camera feature is the LM920 killer feature.

    Just on par with iPhone 5 camera is not enough to be the killer feature.

    PS. But I saw the progress on the 1st update here. So, I believe that, we can expect more from Nokia. (If Microsoft not so stubborn and interfere with Nokia's work).

    My iPhone 5 takes better pictures more consistently. Way more detail and just much more simple. Yes I know low light low light but the i5 can take decent low light pictures as well it's just the 920 has that feature down packed. They just need to make it overall better and fix whatever it is that throws it off focus.
