    Looking good.. EDM is the way.. I really can't stand the mainstream stuff (guetta, aoki, afrojak..) that is popular now, but other than that there is tons of good music out there.

    The Dumbing Down of Electronic Dance Music | By Jim Fusilli - WSJ.com

    and just for reference, couple of pics in similar conditions from PV Phase 1

    http://www.esato.com/phonephotos/cam...2349RFx810.jpg

    This is where the xenon flash rules.. freezing motion
    http://i.imgur.com/UMbSVxr.jpg

    And the sound recording, still better.. since it records at a higher bitrate and in stereo. This is a Funktion 1 sound system... that thing is truly incredible





    daytime pictures are still N95 quality(at best), to be real I didn't expect more anyway
    Its still the same tiny sensor... can't expect anything more than that.

    It doesn't look like the flash fired here, but if it did.. that fan should be "frozen" ... no exif data on any of those pics

    You are correct, the fan picture was taken with a long exposure and no flash to intentionally blur the blades.

    Buffs huh... CPB happen to be our employer?
    Nope, not in CO anymore.

    Impressive, thank you! I would love to see some night photos taken with the flash, if you have any, could you post some?
    Here are some comparisons of pictures in the dark with and without flash: Lumia 928 - Flash Comparison - Imgur

    I see your an EDM fan =P Who's your favorite artist?

    On the phone front, since the 928 is supposed to have the same sensor as the 920, should there be a visible difference in the picture/video quality between the 2? I mean if people claim they can see the difference with the 928 shots, shouldn't a simple software update to the 920 bring up to the same level as the 928?
    Probably Tiesto and Armin. You are correct that the camera setups are very similar so I imagine the potential is very similar (without flash), but I honestly dont know the details on what differences exist in the camera software between the two phones.

    I have same question. Are the mics on 928 different than the ones on 920?

    Again, thanks a ton for the footage. I listened on a decent headset rig and its unbelievable the detail you can hear and the bass is something I've never heard before in a situation like this on handlheld consumer gear.
    I am not sure of the exact mic configuration on the 920 but both phones have mics capable of HAAC so they should be able to record audio with similar quality. A direct comparison to audio recorded at a similar concert with other phones/cameras/gopros shows how good Nokia audio recording really is; you can extract the audio from your clips and make mp3s that sound great.

    xenon recharges is a couple seconds, I have never had an issue where I have had to wait to use the flash.

    Yes, but the size of the capacitors in those phones allows for a very short recharge time since they are small.. I've never had an issue, its fast enough.

    I hope someone like ifixit takes the 928 apart so we can take a look at the capacitor :)

    Been there done that. Took and fully used my 920 at Ultra Music Festival 2013. Amazing audio capture. I <3 HAAC. Literally laughed out loud at everyone with a GS3 or iPhone 5

    Check out the post:

    Ok guys it's not like we need anymore proof of the capability of the 920's recording abilities, but the weekend before the last i went to Ultra Music Festival in Miami and let me tell you that i was more than impressed with my phone's ability to record the various tones and wobbles that are typical at EDM (Electric Dance Music) festivals. I laughed every time i saw someone trying to record video with a GS3 or iPhone, "you're getting nothing but moving pictures, the audio is going to be p00p!" i thought to myself. Sure enough one of my friends recording with a GS3 was quite disappointed with his phone and was amazed at how well the 920 took in audio and HD video.

    Where most phones have trouble with distortion from loud deep bass tones, the 920 puts on a show and struts it's stuff.

    Below you'll find links to video i posted on YouTube. OIS can only do so much, i apologize in advance for not being able to keep still and just hold the phone. Hard not to when the music is so good.

    And also, my Facebook album for the trip. By the way, i had the assistance of the Brando power jacket to get through the 12+ hour days recording vids and pictures. If you haven't been to Ultra, you have to go. I had a blast and am going again next year.

    Enjoy!

    I have same question. Are the mics on 928 different than the ones on 920?.
    Almost everything the same like
    - mono HAAC for recording Video (High Amplitude Audio max = 140 dB)
    - camera + OIS
    - gloves free=supersensitive
    - CPU+GPU+RAM, including speed
    - Battery capacity (2000 mAh)

    Different:
    - Xenon-flash (instead of a short-pulse dual-led)
    - dimensions & weight (longer, narrower, less thick, much lighter ; outside & inside differences)
    - physical display = AMOLED (max brightness 500 nit < 600 nit), real speed unknown (9 ms on 920)
    - Battery model designation (maintenance replaceable on both, e.g. when it gets old)
    - speaker (should be louder)
    - a few other things like initial color options and US distribution, new commercials, etc

    If you find mistakes or omissions on diff, please add!

    It has the same number of mics as the 920.

    These are night videos taken at Disney's California Adventure with the Nokia Lumia 928. The first pic is a pan-through of Paradise Pier while the remaining videos are of tidbits of The World of Color, a water fountain show on steroids. The Lumia 928 has done an excellent job of capturing the vibrant color of the spectacle with excellent audio recording. As for battery life...by the time it was time for the show, I had already gone the entire day making phone calls, sending text messages, and playing games while waiting in line for rides and I still had plenty of juice left.

    I am a big windows phone fan, but to be honest the sharpness of some of those photos aren't really impressive, I am not trying to knock it here, just saying compared to some other high end phones the sharpness seems very muted.

    I wonder when we'll have official press pics from Nokia using this camera. Seems like we have all this media for the 925 immediately but pretty much zilch for the 928.

    You have to remember though, the ones that aren't as sharp as you like are low light photos or photos of something moving (fan). The normal pictures of still objects look incredible in sharpness and color!

    I think Nokia would do well to turn down the post-processing a bit. You can see the blurring when you zoom in on photos from the 920 and 928. It's not terrible, but I don't think they need to be doing that much post-processing to the pictures. I would rather have a sharper, more raw photo that I can then apply filters as needed. There has been word that when the GDR2 update hits, Nokia phones will get some software improvements involving the camera.

    I was talking about the flowers one, there is a very very soft sharpness to it, I am not saying this is a bad camera at all (trust me I cant wait to get my hands on this phone) just wish pictures were a tad sharper.

    Dunno if this was posted already, but in their preview Slashgear has posted some high res test shots they took with the camera. Full screen on my monitor it looks quite good, although zooming to 100% reveals what reminds me of the Paint Daubs filter in photoshop. Ie; some heavy processing:

    It's white. The lighting is reflecting off of it and giving a yellow shade to it.

    Updated the OP to show a new guide to do with photography: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...Bguide%5D.html

    Also, am I wrong in thinking that both the 928 and the 920 have 3 HAAC mics that HTC's new One phone also has, and HTC's version is capable of stereo recording... this is a software thing, right?

    The recordings are really really good here. I wish I'd have been able to go to one of these concerts in person still, though.
