Amazing shot for a 1 sec exposure HANDHELD! The OIS on this camera is incredible. Forget about other phones, I don't think even dedicated point and shoot cameras can give you that kind of handheld shots. Of course these are not as sharp as daylight shots, but one can downrez and sharpen it a little in post-processing and they look very legit on typical computers.

Maybe someone can make a guide for getting the best night /low light shots? Or does it depend on the environment to know when to use certain settings?
Is it now 200iso and -2exposure value? Does the camera mode need to be on Auto or on night?
With the shots I'm seeing you guys taking, I think a guide would be very helpful to photo newbies like myself.

I personally have learned alot in forums by asking questions. With the 920 I'm getting best pictures in low light using 100-200 ISO and ever thing else auto except of my kids I'll use sport option sometimes.
Night shots I use 200 ISO and night or night portrait and just recently started adjusting the EV from -1 to -2 for real dark settings.
Just play within the ranges and take multiple shots to see what looks best to you then you can start getting a consistency going into a environment you will know what to out your phone at to maximize the potential of the camera.

ISO 100, everything else auto. No post-processing (other than what G+ does to it when it uploads). Skydrive link to the originals here for the curious and pixel-peepers: http://sdrv.ms/UjiQNr

Some close-up photography at SeaWorld. Settings were "Close-Up" on scenes. No flash assist, and no flash. Everything else on auto/default. No post-processing done.

Here's a video sample of one of the Shamu shows at night. The phone even gets heavily splashed on, which also occurred during a daytime show as well, which indicates the phone has some level of water resistance. Please view at 1080 to get the full experience.

The official Nokia blog need to check their definition of bokeh, though - it's the subjective intangible quality of out-of-focus areas of a photograph, and it's usually used in sentences like "I prefer the bokeh of the Zeiss lens in the Nokia 920 over the Largan lens in the iPhone". What they're referring to is shallow depth of field.
Hey, what are forums for, if not to nit-pick? :P
