    Okay, I went through the trouble of connecting my phone to my computer and I've uploaded five test shots (the four below and the previous purple flower) from the nursery to flickr at full resolution. This is the first that I've seen 100% crops, and I've gotta say that I'm pretty impressed (to view full size, follow link to flickr, right-click and select the "Original" size). All EXIF is there for those interested, too.

    Clearly the 928 camera sucks... /sarcasm

    Seriously, those flower pictures are unbelievable for a smartphone.

    I took these shots in our guest bedroom. The first is in total darkness, using only the flash, the second with the (incandescent) ceiling fan light on, without flash, and the third with the light on and the flash on. The actual color is pretty much spot on with the light off and flash on. It looks to me like the white balance shifts to the xenon value whenever you use the xenon flash, so the incandescent color cast shows in the picture. This could be corrected with software, so I wouldn't call the addition of the xenon flash a failure. Let's see what they come up with in coming weeks and months.

    my flash does tend towards yellow in a room with one bulb lit, which tends to have a yellow cast to the room anyway but it does amplify it. I have not tied it yet in other settings

    I am a professional photographer, having picked the Lumia up last week I was excited to play around with it. While I do not believe the day light images to be on par with the iphone 5 camera, the low light camera is simply stunning.

    I can promise anyone that a shot taken with an iphone during similar lighting conditions would have been much, much worse. The noise alone would have made the image unusable. While I wouldn't print the image, or use it for anything commercially, I was more than happy to share it with friends on facebook & twitter.

    For those wondering how much difference there is between the lumia camera, and what I normally take on my travels (sony nex-5r for quick road trips such as this):

    I highly doubt cell phone cameras will ever catch up with a camera with a full DSLR sensor. This was a long exposure on a tripod, something you could not accomplish with the Lumia. I have been pleased with the camera so far, and really look forward to digging into the other options and functions available.

    Just a few seconds of my pastor preaching Sunday while I was running the sound board.

    Thanks.

    I understand the concept behind the stabilizer technology (or perhaps I don't), but when I used the video for the first time, there was a fair amount of shake to it. I tested it out by recording a friend while walking next to me. I have since deleted it, but I'll do another test during lunch, and post it.

    Keep in mind that the intent is to dampen the vibrations of trying to hold the camera still. If you're moving, it's not going to do near as good a job, as the dampening can only move so far to compensate for movement.

    Just uploaded so it might take a while for HQ options to show up.

    And some decent shots:

    Right, that is what I understand. I didn't expect to have "steady-cam" results, but I just want to know if my video is on par with what others have, during similar conditions (recording while walking). Judging from B.sheep's video, it looks like mine. I'll post my video in a few. Just waiting for it to upload.

    Vallos your video is really smooth. How much were you trying to keep the lumia steady? In my vid, I don't think I was trying to very much. I wasn't even looking at the camera half the time, so that's probably why mine is a lot shakier than yours.

    I was holding it with two hands (landscape), but that was more so to keep the phone secure. As you can see, the foot traffic is quite busy. My first video test was in a residential area, held with one hand (portrait) and it came out like yours.

    The other day the rain where I live would have overflowed this in less than 5 hours. We ended up with a couple roads washed out, and for a while one road was six feet under, and even the railroad tracks were submerged.

    I know this thread is for the 928, but I was on the fence about the 925 until I went through this thread. Pretty amazing for a smartphone. I'll be the first in line when T-Mo releases the 925.
