    I'm blown away how good OIS is in this camera. Here is two sample shots with ISO 100 and 200. Other is 1,7s shot and other is 0,7s shot. Both 100% hand held, only slight lean with my left hand to window. You can pull these shots every time if you know how.





    Here's the secret how you can get images this sharp on slow shutter speeds hand held. When you tap to focus don't take shot right away after camera is focused. Let the OIS settle down few seconds. You can see how image stabilises near stand still if you wait few seconds. Then take shot and it comes out perfectly.

    I can take images like i posted every freaking time now that i discovered this. Dunno if it was this way on 920 but 1520 really rocks.

    1 more hand held, 100 ISO, 0,51s exposure. Simply wow i say

    I think 200 ISO for low light shots would be ideal. Noise isn't problem and would give bit more playfield for sharper shots.

    Yup Bangkok... I'm from the states... but i'm here for work.. Which gave me the availability to buy the unlock international version of the 1520... so much better than the ATT version.

    If you are going to have fun (clubs/strip clubs) don't take a wallet and only take the cash in your front pocket on what you plan to spend that night. Leave taxi money hidden in your back pocket.

    Don't accept porn dvd's or buy any. Most are undercover cops and arrest you for buying child pornography...you have to pay big fines etc..

    If you go to pattaya the beach close to bangkok dont rent the water jet skis. 50% of them are scammers. They will say you caused damages and make you pay big bucks. Cops are in it if you try not to pay.



    pm me if you are interested in more info. A lot of scammers and kidnappers.

    Impressive. My 808 can only dream of such performance when hand held... bravo.

    And thanks for the tip about waiting for the image to stabilize.

    This "video" is more just to demonstrate the audio capture of the 1520:



    I uploaded it in HD, so if that option is not available yet, check back later.

    Here are the source files:
    Index of /lumia/1520/20131216soundcheck

    The 10mb one is clearly the mp3 and the half gig one is the video.

    This photo was taken on auto setting using the physical camera button with no adjustments except this crop is approximately 40% of the original photo. With the 1520's 20-megapixel camera the details are still there. I've noticed the photos taken with the 1520 are more consistently in focus and have better color balance than with my 920. The Lumia phones are known for low light photo but I think they do well in sunlight too. I am also glad for the physical camera button because with a phone this large I find it easier to hold the phone still using two hands.

    My first couple of pics taken with the 1520. The flower pic was taken with the plastic over the lens, as I didn't have a case yet. The second is of my cat Nova moving in my direction.

    Nice job! I bet software could clean up the ever so slight shake from the longer exposure. But that isn't even needed until you're looking at a 100% crop.

    Could you upload more low light photos? I'm thinking that 925 is way better in low light with or without flash. Better camera in 925 or just software? Ha! That is a question!

    I think 1520 can do better since OIS is far superior to 925. You can take low ISO long exposure shots with 1520 where 925 OIS can't handle shakiness from hands beyond 1/6 very well. In my experiments with 920 i could do blur free photos only up to 1/10 with some 90% success rate. With 1520 it's 1/2s and whole 1s shots are possible with steady hands.

    Of course 2.0f aperture in 925 makes thinks up and you don't need to shoot so slow shutter speeds with it compared to 1520 to get same exposure, but it still isn't enough against superior OIS in 1520. Also processing is better in 1520 where low light images are cleaner of noise which makes low light shots look much better specially when using ISO values above 800.

    If weather is good to nite i can go to take some more shots. Below is two shots that i took earlier that i haven't posted here.

    https://mavtgw.dm2304.livefilestore....Pro.jpg?psid=1 0.88s ISO-100
    https://mavtgw.dm1.livefilestore.com...Pro.jpg?psid=1 1/2s ISO-100

    This is by the way ISO-2500 shot. Could you believe it https://mavtgw.dm1.livefilestore.com...Pro.jpg?psid=1

    With software update to 1520 it could do even better since there is way too much contrast in processing algorithms in 1520 software and it could produce brighter images with same shutter speed if toned down a bit. Now details are lost in shadowed areas too much. If you compare RAW images to jpegs of 1520 there is details visible in shadowed areas in RAW but in jpegs those details are lost due excessive contrast applied in to them.
