    Hi tissotti - I am hoping to use my camera phone for everyday shots of my children so while I was comparing the Note 2 and Lumia 920 I downloaded the pictures from the Note 2 (assuming the S3 would have similar results) and the Lumia to the pc for comparison. The Lumia I borrowed didn't have the PORTICO update and the images were softer than I would have liked which is why I've not committed to a 2 year contract yet. The pc difference isn't as drastic as on the phones screen though which is interesting. Your point well made! Thanks

Lumia 920 on the other hand does a superb job in these situations.
    I have 3 kids and will be using my phone for this purpose. Thanks for this input, answers a big question for me. How is the camera coping? You got the portico update yet?

    Yes I do have the update and does a phenomenal job! I'll post some shots...one recommendation put your ISO at 200. This will greatly improve your indoor low light shots of your kids.
    Also you can buy a lense called pro shot..it has a lock focus feature which can help to capture those moments. Lastly sport option in the stock camera speeds up the shutter and helps get those shots where the kids will not stay still.

    Good to know, cheers.

    Thanks to everyone for your input - going to go and get my new phone tomorrow I hope! Wish there was a definite date for the update ... guess I just got to trust it's on its way to the UK, and try and be patient :)

    I sort of like this one, taken with my Lumia 920 a few days ago. The image is untouched.

    dpreview.com released their review of 920's camera. They do some serious reviews of DSLRs and have started reviewing key smartphone cameras only recently. The review is more or less in line with what we (at least I) know about.

    "Nokia says this happens 500 times per second and results in a three-stop advantage in hand-holdability, which is on par with claims from dedicated camera makers. In other words, if you can normally hold the phone steady enough for a clear shot with a shutter speed of 1/30th of a second, Nokia’s OIS should keep you virtually steady down to 1/4 second. Another way to look at it: a low-light shot that would normally require ISO 800 (and all the noise that implies) could be shot at a more reasonable ISO 100 without shake-induced blurring."

    Does it deliver? Nokia’s three-stop claim is largely borne out, with the 920 routinely delivering sharp images at 1/3rd of a second shutter speeds. You can see the OIS in action before you take a picture: the system kicks in when you half-press the shutter, and the preview image immediately snaps into a spooky steadiness, floating ghostly and immune to the usual micro-movements of your muscles.

    The urge when given OIS is to push it to the extreme, and we did. The system hugely increases the number of sharp shots you’ll get at very slow, sub-1/10th of a second shutter speeds. That means you can afford to lower ISO for cleaner images, or in very low light, just get photographs that would be otherwise impossible to capture. "

    "The 920’s F2.0 lens gives you about a half-stop advantage over most of the competition. So for example, with lighting and shutter speed being equal, the 920 could use an ISO setting of 200, while a competitor might need 280 or more. It’s not a big difference, but it’s an advantage."

    " This makes it an ace at low-light photography of stationary objects, and partially addresses the Achilles heel of every phone camera on the market except Nokia’s own 808: poor low light performance. OIS also helps with borderline shutter speeds that non-stabilized phones routinely use anyway. While they simply hope for the best, the 920 stands an excellent chance of delivering a sharp image."

    Hmmm you can't see my pictures? I logged in with a few browsers and they seem to be just fine. Are you mobile?
