    That's why I use both the one x and lumia the camera sucks, for the lumia you ha e to be an expert to get it to take decent photos most of us are not

    Just for your info the HTC One X camera its totally bull crap because if enlarge the image do not have image quality at ALL. I just dont understand how you people can be satisfy with such quality. Dont believe me try view your photos on the computer.

    Try taking close up images the image come out dull and full of noise. I just cant stand it

    Here some shots i taken with my HTC one X

    The Lumia carl zeiss optics is stunning even the Nokia Lumia 800 as well. Here some of my work as well

    You know whats the biggest joke? None of this photos are even edited. Its stock from its camera app thats how powerful the carl zeiss optics is. This is my personal experience with all the mobile phones in the market. Android and iphone can never win a mobile phone with a carl zeiss lens.

    Disagree? get them to take the photos i just took without editing and extra lens with their android and iphone

    Want to be amaze how much details the carl zeiss lens can produce try view the image at 1024 X 768 then try view your android capture photos at 1024 X 768 and you will be surprise.

    Have you tried setting the ISO down to 100? I notice that noise is a lot lower at this setting. Also turning down the saturation helps as well for low light sometimes.
    I usually keep the 100 on, will increase a level based on darkness, but 100 is default at this point.

    Ill try the saturation see if that helps.

    The carl zeiss lens is amazing. It's the 900 camera software/code/algorithms that are messed up.

    It seems the L800 and the L900 have the same camera, yet the 800 takes better pictures than the 900.

    When I take pictures with mine it will sometimes strongly illuminate the center of the shot, what ever item it is, and leave everything around it pitch black, even if its not dark.

    For example, this shot was out of focus so the camera did not focus on the object(Kitty) and you can see how light the room is.


    This is the same location, but the focus worked, outside of the kitty, everything looks pitch black, even though the room was well lit.

    Nice pics. Would you mind sharing your tips with us? Did you have to change any of the default settings?

    Thanks.
    No, he's not interested in actually helping anyone take better pics.

    He's rather just keep posting pics he allegedly took from a 900 and gushing about the Carl Zeiss lens and acting like everyone else is an ***** if their pics don't look like his.

    He did imply earlier that if you PM him and kiss his *** as the god of Lumia photography though, he might bless you with some of his magical wisdom.

    Personally, I don't take many pics with my phone anyway, I only do it for reference now, like to remind me of something etc. I've given up actually getting "keeper" pics out of this phone. But I've never really had a phone that took good pictures, so this is nothing new.

    I'm not going to prostrate myself before Windowsphone7 and beg for the magic ISO settings. Clearly Nokia is doing it wrong when the cameras on the top phones on the market take great pics out of the box without any secret tips required.

    I'm patient. I'll stick with my excellent digital camera for now when I need a pic that's actually in focus and that looks good. The next phone I buy will probably have PureView which I'm sure will take excellent pics without a photography course being required.

    No the biggest joke is that you'd rather keep posting the same pics over and over again and jizzing all over Carl Zeiss instead of simply giving people some useful information so they can take better pictures. :lol:

    I don't understand why you keep posting the same photo ? I notice my photos are all different. Try prevent yourself keep posting the same photo that simple or don't post.

    For a smart *** like u the title of this thread is how to fix? Not how to take better photos learn how to read English. Don't simply flame ppl because you have lack of intelligence. I have posted many useful information on my blog and ppl that pm.

    Lastly people condemning the camera and you want me to give tips? Sorry to offend your intelligence does that make sense? If the ppl believe the camera is at fault change the camera you don't need tips to understand that you might right?

    Just for the sake I give you a tip if u feel strongly the camera is at fault change the camera simple?

    Not happy go play with your android and iPhone and brag how you love the cam there.

    Cheers

    In the photo thread he did mention some tips on how he achieved some of his photos.

    reduce/increase Exposure
    Usually i take auto and Exposure depend on the situation

    I've tried it out, and it works to some degree for me. But that still doesn't change the fact of both arguements imo. The hardware is there, the Carl Zeiss stuff works well when the settings are right, leaving it up to MS/Nokia to do something about how the software interprets the photo being taken. I've taken some horrible photos on auto, and really nice ones on auto, and lots of mediocre and sub-par photos on auto and with manual settings. I've also seen other members post some nice photos in the photo thread, and a lot of others that just do the opposite justifying a further need for the software to be tuned.

    The S and the X share the same camera hardware and software. The lumia might have better camera hardware but the software sucks, I can pull my HTC, open the camera app, take a quick photo in less than a second and it will look great where with the lumia it takes around 3 seconds just to focus and still I get a crappy picture unless I play with the camera settings.

    Haha, i am glad somebody else noticed this too. I've seen all these pictures, but no helpful tips. I read through the stickied thread as well and didnt really see any tips besides general suggestions like "adjust this and that". Well ya, how bout more specifics, adjust this for what situation. For some of the pictures, how bout list your settings? Nope, wont do it.

    The tip i did get via PM was to do what somebody else said in the thread which was change the ISO to 100. I guess that is the magical wisdom, obviously, it is not simple as that.

    As i read and see more, i am believing more that this is a marketing person from nokia or something.

    Hahaha you guys are cute. What you focus expands. Now become marketing gimic. Time to grow up if i put watermark someone will said i edit. Now without watermark become marketing gimic see how predictable. I rest my case haha. Ill enjoy taking my photos and do enjoy finding fault with the camera.

    Conclusion if you think that is a problem with the camera change it. Since you think its a marketing gimic do consult android with manufacturer like samsung and HTC on how to market their camera too hahahaha

    I do agree it indeed fast i am using a HTC One X the only issue when you view the photo on the phone it looks alright and view the photos on the computer there is totally no good image quality at all when Lumia 900 isnt that fast but it have the image quality from my opinion.

    Another thing i shot side by side HTC One X and Nokia LUmia 900 the close up of the Lumia 900 is very close when the HTC One X end up blur.

    The hardware is amazing just the software is not that brush up yet. Lets hope windows phone 8 they will fix this

    Everyone said the photos looks great but try look closer you notice the noise visible in the image depends on your level of observation to ppl that marketing for android might not see it.

    If you notice i didnt post any bee of the HTC One X its not because i dont want the camera cant even focus at the bee out of the burst shot not even 1 is clear unlike the ones taken by lumias and n8 it can focus

    These are pretty awesome pictures you took with the NL900. It shows that the device can take some damn good pictures and it's me being impatient with the camera clicks.
