    Don't update!! Amber has f**** up the image processing and you will get horrible results when taking pictures. Try a soft reset, check camera setting to make sure you haven't set anything wrong.

    low light photo means there is a light source but in "low" condition
    but what I see is there is no light source in room you take photo
    so it's normal become completly dark

    with amber you will get higher ISO but yes it will more grainy and noise
    but you can set up slow shutter speed like 2 or 4 seconds and set ISO to 100-200 to get bright and less grainy picture in low light (you need Nokia Camera for better camera setting + update to Amber)

    to update just go to Settings and choose phone update. You need wi-fi connection and some time because it will take 1-2 hours in normal connection speed.

    You will regret updating to Amber, photos look unfocussed, colors washed out, green/yellow tint etc. See these forums for proof.

    well for me Amber update is not too bad, increase performace and stability of OS, sms and call block feature, FM radio, many more. Yes there are some issue with bad camera performance after Amber but if you don't mind about camera then go for Amber. But there are some rumours some country get more update for fix Camera issue in Amber update.

    If you don't want update to Amber, you must wait Black update next year, maybe on February/March. I heard Camera issue will be fix in Black update next year.

    update:
    here is a blog compare about 920 camera performace before/after Amber update:

    Hmm some strange things happened to my 928 yesterday. After being sick of the poor camera performance I've decided to try something, hoping I would be able to fix the issues as someone here on the forums posted some photos with his lumia 920.1 brand new with
    Amber installed, and I must say those photos look perfect.
    I have done these:
    Soft reset phone
    Removed Nokia Camera
    Removed Nokia Glam Me (!!)
    Reinstalled only Nokia Camera and Boom! Photos look way better now. I don't get it. What the heck was the problem? Was the Nokia Glam Me the problem??
    Look at the photo taken with Nokia camera after the steps:
