Got this phone in the morning, absolutely love it, WOW screen!!!!
BUT comparing the camera to SGS3, L920 isn't good enough. Apart from using the camera in the dark without the flash, my mates SGS3 outdid it in all pictures, im absolutely shocked!! Pureview my ***!!!
Ive had windows phones since HTC touch days!!!

im pretty confident Nokia can adjust the in camera processing to be equal or better than any other phone camera on the market.
the on thing that you have .... is Nokia backing the product so stay tuned for an update is my guess...
now with the low light and video performance... i doubt any other phone camera can compete.. the video is simply amazing...

Nokia confirmed that they will release a software update to fix a few things. Be happy Nokia notices the issue unlike another company that charges you a ton for 2 year old tech (that has a 5 on it) and when people have camera issues (purple hue), they blame it on you while waddling your cash.

Definitely agree with you on the 'blurry' issue...
My old L900 had a shyt camera and we were all promised by Nokia an update would fix it but guess what it did jack all. I used fhotoroom app instead improved the camera images slightly!

I've made the switch from the iPhone 4s, and I am completely satisfied with this camera. The first thing I did was compare the two, and it definitely outperforms in most scenarios.
Here's one of the shots I've taken and edited with fhotoroom.

Guys come on you must be sick of the following process Nokia follows:
1) before releasing the phone, tell everyone about all the killing features and how superb they are!
2) release the phone almighty late
3) The features are not as good as promised to be
4) customers complain
5) Nokia responds "an update is coming"

Has an update actually been confirmed?
I saw a post on here that some guy said was an email from Elop, but is that it? Or has there been an official statement.
Getting worried about the camera on this thing. You would have expected it to be released in a better condition.

Engadget confirmed that Nokia told them that a camera fix/update is in the pipeline.
I'm not sure how ling it will take, but I'm not that worried because Nokia has a pretty good track record of following through on things they say they will do.

The thing with the camera is that it has potential.. they are not extracting 100% out of the hardware, which is very strange for Nokia... they usually maximize the hardware. So.. there is room for improvement for sure.

Personally i don't think an update would make much difference.
But the screen, speed and build quality is simply awesome!! In these depts SGS3 doesn't stand a chance.
Sometimes i think we fail to give credit where its due. SGS3 was released just before mid year 2012 and the camera is still better than most devices now including L920 IMO.

Im not making stuff up to bash Nokia but this is the second time I've been disappointed! Firstly with 900 now 920.
When we wait for so long for a phone that has had the worst launch ever and then we pay a a hefty fee of £450 for a sim free (wtf still locked) then i have a right to express my feelings towards Nokia.
Someone needs to get a wet fish and slap it across S.Elop's face so that he wakes the fuk up and stop BSing the consumers!!

They promised amazing low light performance and steady video. It works exactly as promised.
I don't think they ever promised best-in-class daytime photos.
I'll gladly take any updates to increase performance. But I don't expect it to outclass the iPhone 5 for daylight shots.

Amazing low light performance which is still not better than SGS3.
I compared my pics to a SGS3 in all kind of scenarios, high light, low light and no light without flash and i was deeply disappointed.
I've had windows phones since the early days so please don't think im trolling or over exaggerating!!
