    Hi, my 1020 is about 3 weeks old now and i love it
    But there is something i don't understand, here are two pictures that i snapped(Screenshot from mobile)

    I take the photo
    Open the image
    This is how it looks for ~2 seconds



    And when the app has been loaded up with all the buttons and stuff does the image get blurred.


    And this is 5mpx image


    Why is the 2 seconds preview alot sharper?

    Yea, I made a thread about this when I got my 1020, comparing the previous Pureview Camera to the new. The blurry and warm images are due to the post-processing of the photo.

    In case someone isn't already working on the solution, I'm adding my "me too" to this.
    It's similar to the issue we saw when the 900 launched, great pictures are reduced in greatness for whatever reason. When I snap a shot, I want it to look exactly as I see it on the screen as I'm shooting it. I'm not sure what it takes to make that happen but that's what I'd think we all expect.

    This is certainly an issue and one that requires a quick and effective fix.

    exact same thing happens on my 920 too, sharp nice tone to preview after shot, then goes blurred and yellow tint in actual save!

    Just curious but has anyone approached Nokia about it and if so what was their response?

    I've posted this along with a green tint problem I have on the Nokia Discussion board. My photos go blurry and green and I can't even fix them with iPhoto.

    Cool that you managed to get a screenshot from this ;-) In my case it's shorter than 2 sec that you see it. But the effect is definitely there. The result is sharper than the preview but not as sharp as the "original"

    In the settings of the new app update, set it to preview the images after each shot taken, and you'll clearly see the post processing still happening. You just can't see it as it happens like the OP did. If Nokia's upcoming update allows RAW photos to be taken, then our problems will be solved.

    Not as bad as before.

    I still have photos that were taken prior to the new update, and the warm and overly-saturated post processing look the same, even after the update. Maybe it's a case of placebo that is taking place here? :P
    The photos always look fuzzy and warm on the phone, but they look much better once they are extracted onto a PC or viewed on a different screen. I think the 1020's screen is more to blame than people think. I've viewed my 1020's images on PC's, iPhone 5's, GS4's and on Macbook Pro's with Retina displays, and the photos always have better colouring and clarity on other screens. That's my #1 disappointment with the 1020. With a super clear camera, we should have a super clear screen.

    Same here, its quite annoying once you notice it happening. Still haven't tested if the new Nokia Camera app fixed this.

    It is fixed somewhat. The Post Processing is not as heavy as before. I couldn't even tell at all if preview mode was off. Before I can tell when preview was off before the update.

    I am guessing you need the firmware update as well, not just the Nokia Camera app update?

    I had the preview gdr3 update since day one and noticed the heavy Post Processing on images before the camera update. The camera update helped but the PP is still there. Just not as heavy as before. I'm guessing it's noise reduction and fixing blown highlights. I just wish Nokia could give us options to do "Off, Low, Medium, and High" auto post processing.

    Gonna test things tomorrow. Haven't taken a single photo since updating.

    Has anyone tested colour saturation with the xenon flash on auto mode?

    Here are some samples from GDR3 Preview with latest Nokia Camera as of 10/22/2013:


    5MP

    From 34MP downsized to 1311 x 740

    Screenshot Preview

    Screenshot Review

    As you can see the two second preview is still sharper and has more contrast but the highlights are a little blown out on the headphones. The preview has more yellow tint on the table. The post processing overall better color and better exposed but not as sharp and has less contrast.
