    This problem occurred with the Amber-firmware and it was not solved/repaired in the Black-firmware.
    The photo quality was way better in the Portico-firmware.

    Nokia completely ignores the complaints about this by many many users.
    Nokia cameras are no more any better than the competition this way.

    Lumia 630 have a better quality photo, but with the same camera of 520.

    Btw in the new update there is no option to view the picture right after the shot was taken, need to open gallery =\

    Silviu, depends on your bug definition. Living images works properly on 1020, the eco-system is simply not ready (so they can be seen in the beta camera roll only, so far). From that point of view, it's not a bug.
    If you suggest that now, the feature is in the nokia camera app but will be enabled with Cyan (stock camera roll supporting living images, storyteller too), yes of course I can wait.
    Didn't test that much, but AFAIK you can view the "Living image" only right after you took the shot. You will not be able to view it later i.e. in Storyteller. I tried it on my 1520 right after the beta app was updated, and I understood there was no big reason to use it.

    Ah so, well it doesn't matter for these NON-Pureview model i think. Without OIS it was probably useless, thats why they took that out.
    It wasn't useless, it worked just fine before (on my 620), they took out the 4 sec. shutter speed for no obvious reason

    Not sure if it's just me, but I'm unable to take high resolution pictures with my Lumia 1020 since I updated to 8.1 —instead of getting the photo, I get a completely green image. I guess it'll be fixed with Cyan. Anybody else experiencing this?

    The only thing I care about updating from Amber>Black and Black>8.1 is to see the camera improvements. Microkia should put the camera algorithm from portico to Cyan update.

    Just a question I'm been trying to figure out... How much more space will each picture now consume with living images? After all, each one is technically a mini-video.

    Not that much, there's .thm file which is a mp4, it's less than a MB.

    To me Pure View doesn’t work, excepted for low light-high ISO photos, if you put aside the yellowish bias, also detected. They’re afraid of noise, I can understand that, but at least give us the option to choose picture quality. Taken with good light photos are good, they could be better. People are getting better colors switching to other photo apps. If you want better sharpness (till 800 ISO) you have to use raw (DNG). It’s what I’m doing (and what allows proving what I’m saying). The sad thing it’s perhaps there will be no further improvements to 1020 Pure View, because they’re considering it’s an old sensor.

    Is it me? Or did this new Camera Update changed the resolution and camera color profile? To me the image and color reproduction quality became worse after installing this update on my Lumia 1520 running Lumia Black firmware.

    I wonder if this will be fixed once I upgrade to Lumia Amber later this summer...

    Yeah. It is. Because the job is the firmware, not the Nokia Camera....

    Maybe they make it worse on purpose so we buy a new Lumia. Conspiracy thinker.

    several thing I noticed on my 1020:
    * no continuous autofocus as yet... and if that won't come to this monster, it is a definite blasphemy
    * you can't see your captured image right after you take it. the good point of this is that you'll feel the shoot-to-shoot time is a little bit quicker if you used that feature before.

    I'm saving my judgment until Lumia Cyan released...

    They also should enable even longer exposure times, so i can shoot at night with my Lumia 1020 + tripod at ISO 100

    Uhh, I'm losing hope in Nokia Camera. Is there any other app that gives me manual settings? Better if its free cuz I'm so broke.
    @Penecho - true, but not just for the 1020, they should enable higher exposure for all Lumia phones.

    perhaps the reason that Nokia/Microsoft removed the 4s shutter speed on lower-end phones is to give advantage for those who spent their money for PureView devices

    ISO 100 and 4 seconds exposure time would still produce overexposed pictures
    I'd rather go for lower ISO than longer exposure time for this one...
