    Man today I lined up with an S3 taking some shots. The pics on that phone looks ALOT brighter and cleaner. Everyone else agreed.

    I was embarrassed :(

    I have an S3 and my Lumia 920 takes better pictures. I can post comparison if you are interested. I will say coming from an S3 which is more a point and shoot phone you have to know your Lumia to maximize the picture quality. What was the setting of the pictures?

    Yes, please! I'm very interested with this case. Is it the phone? Is it the man behind the gun? Or is it just a matter of taste? :D

    I did a two week comparison between the S3 & Lumia 920 just on the camera before I made my decision to keep it. I still have my S3 so doing a fresh round of comparison would be fun:) I'm guessing your camera show down took place in some what poor or low lighting?

    Yes it is some what the man or woman behind the camera. Some of my S3 photos looked brighter on the screen but soon as I put them on the PC that's where the real truth was exposed. But indoor settings or low light where the night feature was not quite needed is where I saw the S3 win. That is till someone suggested to me that I put the ISO on 100-200 with everything else on auto and my pictures rock in low light settings! Out door with good lighting most phones now a days take good pictures.

    My GF using S3 and the first moment I saw it's pics, my thought is the same as you have now.
    But when I transfer those pics into my PC, what I found is the real color & sharpness of those pics are quite different from what we saw on S3 screen.

    You can test it yourself, try to get those images and see from your PC.

    The reason is, the SuperAMOLED screen which produced a over saturated color and sharpness.
    You can send the images you took with LM920 to S3, and see the different of your images when they are on SuperAMOLED screen yourself too.

    Anyway, the S3 camera is still one of the good phone camera. But to me, it's not better than Lumia920's and I'm not embarrass at all.

    I've heard that. But a PC was not around at the same time. Here are the shots. Both are with the lumia. Would like to see what his looked like.

    Try lowering the ISO to 200 and the exposure next time, keeps the glare out of the lights

    Try turning your ISO to 200 and you should not have those blurry glares from the light. Also i almost always use camera button to ensure i get a nice focused shot. Did you use auto or night mode?

    I did try ISO 200 for a couple of shots. I was using auto mode. Referring to the photos with the boats... is it normal for such shots to be so blurry. I am getting the feeling that the OIS on the phone is not functioning.

    Your lens was probably dirty. Those vertical glares are too prominent.

    I believe night mode with ISO 200 will give you the best shot. With good focus too of course. Those shots are close to being great!
    But if your getting bad glare still exposure will fix that. I've mastered ISO but I'm still newbie with exposure. Maybe someone that understands exposure could educate us all.

    I think it's rough to get a good exposure without some sort of metering to tell us how much light is making it to the sensor. I've been playing with CameraPro a bit, and still find it rough without metering. I end up taking 2-3 test shots until I finally get the exposure I want.

    I would like to see those same shots in night mode with ISO set to 200 using the camera button to ensure focus is set before capturing. :)

    Those are nice shots except there are some glares, but the detail is good and it's sharp ^ ^.
    Maybe you could try as @gnrthx and @sanders2232 suggested.

    I'm await for your friend photos too ^ ^.

    Just back from a week cruise to Mexico. Shot a crapload of photos and videos with the 920. Overall, very pleased with the results.

    Here's a shot with no post processing - looks like WP Central resamples the images, so I also attached a smaller 100% crop of the image

    So it needs to be in night mode AND ISO set @ 200?

    The blurry ones are taken at very low light. I can tell because shutter speed is at around 1/10 to 1/5 sec even at high ISO. That's very very slow shutter speed for handheld shots even with OIS. Some blurriness is unavoidable at that situation. Be glad you are still getting modestly usable images. With iphones and Samsungs, you will get unusable pictures (either very dark or much more blurry) in the same situation. There are plenty of such side by side comparisons on Internet. Don't listen to a few naysayers on this board. L920 schools the competition in low light.

    What you can do to increase sharpness in that situation:
    - Keep ISO to the max (800). I see ISO of 650 on some of those shots. Increasing ISO will let you increase shutter speed just a tad.
    - If you think the night shots can be a little less brighter, set the exposure bias to -2/3 to -1 EV. By doing this you will get a bit darker image but benefit from 66% to 100% faster shutter speed or lower ISO for less noise.
    - Don't pixel peep. Downsize image dimension to smaller size (e.g. 1024px or even less) and then a little sharpening in post processing. It will look more presentable for facebook and etc.
    - Use a support such as a tripod. Miniature ones are quite portable and will do wonders for ultra low light situations like that. If a support is not an option, learn to keep your hands real steady.
