    Photos look great sometimes but crap others. Sometimes seems to over expose at top of images in bright conditions. What lets it down is dynamic range,bright and dark at same time

    It's a challenge for all mobile phones unless hdr is used.

    I've had an 8X for about 6 months now. (Well actually I've had three, as the first two died for no reason.) I like the phone overall, but I'm perplexed by all the reviews that state it has an amazing camera, etc. In my experience, it takes terrible pictures about 90% of the time. I get the occasional lovely photo if the lighting is just so, and the subject is perfectly still. There's not much you can do about the need for proper lighting, but the virtual "shutter speed" is just broken on this phone. Yes, you can sometimes improve matters by keeping your hands still, but that's no help if the subject is in motion.

    A simple comparison with my wife's iPhone 5, or even my old iPhone 3 - it's night and day. It's an exception when the iPhone doesn't capture a picture perfectly, and it's an exception when the 8X does. And yes, I've fiddled extensively with the camera settings - primarily to the effect of getting different flavors of mediocre. This is the single biggest bummer of having made the switch from Apple to Win8/HTC. Can anyone else confirm they've had the same experience? Are the "reviews" just online shilling, or am I crazy here?

    How do you take photos? Do you tap on the screen, or use the camera button? Recently, it seems like I've used my camera button enough, or hold is a certain way, where movement isn't a problem, while tapping to take a photo has typically been solid. Colors can vary, but that was true of the last phone I had (Droid RAZR), though it admittedly has a much worse camera.

    Anyway, a few more photos for the thread.

    Some really amazing shots here! Glad to see the camera living up to its potential at least some of the time.

    I admit I need to learn more about camera settings & practice with my 8x, but what would cause a significant difference in light capture from the native camera app vs 3rd party app, e.g. Blink? For example, these two shots were taken under the exact same lighting conditions with the exact same camera settings (default, no flash):

    [WARNING: they're pictures of my pet rats. If you don't like rats, please don't click on the links ]

    native camera app:

    GUYS! Help me help you! We are in need of a section to boast are pictures and discuss how we take them..

    If we can get the mods to see we are interested it could very well be the most popular section in the forum

    So go to this thread and explain why you would like to see a new section of the forum dedicated to just pictures and WPhotography!

    I always thought my 8X had a good camera, until i bought a Lumia 720 on the cheap as a backup phone (less than half the price of what I paid for the 8X). I've ended up swapping my 8X for the 720 as my main phone, mainly due to the camera, the extra battery life helps too... Missing that sharp screen though

    Taken some shots with both for comparison below.

    Do you guys have any suggestions for taking a better picture on the 8X?

    Obvious that the 720 is much better in low light. Both taken on auto. Auto-Fix applied to both (WP built-in).
    8xvs720-comparison2.jpg

    Lumia 720 wins this one too. Highlights are blown out on the 8x, despite no direct sunlight, and the colour should be blue, rather than purple. Both shot on auto with no post-processing.
    8xvs720-comparison1.jpg

    Lumia 720 wins this one too. More detail (maybe down to correct focusing) and true to life colour. The 8X gave a very yellow\warm colour, which was not true to life. Both shot on auto with no post processing.
    8xvs720-comparison3.jpg

    I'ts not so clear cut on the next one. The blue sky is almost completely gone on the 8X, but the 8X provides more detail (even if it is over-sharpened). Prefer the 720 shot. Both shot on auto with WP built-in auto-fix applied to both.

    This is the first pic I posted with my 8X (or any phone for that matter; this is my first smart phone).

    They were free samples being given out at a local bakery; I used my 8X to spread the word.
