    I was ready to jump to the iPhone 5 when I read wpcentral's latest article about the 920's camera. It's true, post-processing can help a GREAT deal.

    In fact, as a photographer, I make sure I process all of my photos from my DSLR - why not from my phone?

    It's a hassle sometimes, but totally worth it, I think.

    I agree. I've been using the Creative Studio right after I take most pics. Like you said, totally worth it! The main reason I purchased the 920 was for it's camera. I can't seem to put this "cameraphone" down for more than 10 minutes! So glad I got the 920!

    One thing I have noticed is if you change your aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3 you will get better results depending on what you are shooting.

    Let me state up front that I admit - my iPhone 4 over-saturates pictures.

    But when comparing pictures with it and the 920 indoors, the 920 is CLEARLY clearer but the iPhone's colors are CLEARLY better. Like I said, I know it's over-saturating but the 920 under-saturates a TON. I've yet to take any pics out in the bright outdoors yet. I hope this can be fixed with a patch (and soon - I only have so many days to return the phone to AT&T). But the camera is 90% of the reason I got the phone and 90% of Nokia's marketing for this phone.

    My comparison shot between iphone4, 920 @ 4:3 and 920 @ 16:9 aspect ratio. All phones were copied off the respect phone and then manually uploaded to skydrive with no compression.

    This wasn't the best test, but it was a quick one. At original size, the iphone looks better to me than both of the Lumia920 shots.

    The sky in the 920 pictures look better to me - the iPhone is just a glare in the top left corner. Overall though, the 920 pictures aren't significantly better; With the 920 being TWO YEARS NEWER and the "best camera phone" on the market, pictures should be SIGNIFICANTLY better on it.

    Does anyone have both a 920 and an iPhone 5 handy to compare shots?

    Also, in the 920 shots, check out the blur of the tree in the top left corner.

    Here are pics from my 920. The macro(close up) setting on this camera is great!

    Can't believe that these are Lumia pictures. They look much better than everything I could get out of the camera. What did you do to them in post processing? I'm using Lightroom but couldn't find settings matching yours ; (

    Thanks, Arnheim

    for me, if I look just past the car at the grass on the 920 pictures, it looks like someone went crazy with the noise reduction and blur tool. With the iphone, it looks WAY better, like you can actually make out that its grass (and dirt), rather than just a greenish/brownish smudge like in the 920 pics.

    macro pictures are fine on the Lumia. Shots taken relatively close look pretty good, but the shots of say, outdoor scenery, are the worst in my opinion when shot from any considerable distance (more than 20 feet).

    I posted a couple of macro pics a few pages back and I was decently happy with them.

    Its shots like these that give me hope, you can tell that the 920 has a superb camera because of the high dynamic range and IMO great color reproduction, It's just limited by some screwy software at the moment. I hope that Nokia can get this sorted out quickly, if I were them I'd make fixing this priority numero uno! :D

    I used Creative Studio to edit the pics. You can download it from the app store.

    I'm not sure if this has already been said, but even when saving pictures to SkyDrive in the original format, they still look much better on your computer than when viewing in SkyDrive.

    Something is definitely being lost in translation. Pictures look best on my phone (not just because of the screen).. then as pictures/files saved on my computer.. then least as good when viewing directly from SkyDrive. What's going on?

    Also, the mild bluryness I see in the pictures on my computer is NOT present when viewing the pictures on my phone.

    Your pics look great. Do you notice a difference in the quality between being viewed on the phone and on the computer? Mine have bits of blurryness when being viewed on my laptop.

    I'm seeing at least some decent photos on here, but my camera is taking horrible pictures no matter what the lighting situation is. Are others having issues no matter low light or lots of natural light? I double checked that I didn't have protective film on the lens and cleaned any smudges from it. It just won't take a crisp image, text is blurry on objects no matter how close or far and I tried the different settings, let it focus and lighting combinations. I took pictures of my city's landscape today that were blurry, but I knew that was expected with the daylight issue. I'm thinking my camera may be completely faulty. Attached is picture I tried to focus on a candle in front of me (this is one of the worst ones).
