    Cyan

    Denim

    Yeah, personal taste LOL.
    If all they did is increase the contrast, then Denim is very dissapointing. Any photographer will tell you what losing details in highlights and shadows is bad, since it's decreasing the dynamic range. But if you prefer contrasty photos, then you can be happy with it

    Anyone can add cotnrast in post production.
    The picture quality is FAR from 'perfect' as you call it.


    Still waiting for my Denim update though...to see for myself.

    The second pic is completely washed out, have incredible blurry edges, the colors are innacurate AT ALL and dark areas have a brown bad tone instead a black tone, it's just awful, just pathetic...

    There's nothing to do with increased level of contrast or loose details on shadows. I don't know what you talking about...

    If you compare pictures you will see that Denim pic is better in absolutely all aspects of photography. Have at least the same details on dark areas, but improved crips edges, better color accuracy, doesn't have the ridiculous brown on dark areas and doesn't looks like a $19 disposable camera (like Lumia Camera Classic alghoritms).

    Perfect? No, only if you pick DNG picture and treat it properly. That's photography rules, not mine. Works for Nokia, Canon, Nikon, etc.

    ps.: Please open these pictures on separated pages (maximized) and you will see how bad the second picture is if compared to first one. I have 100% sure you didn't.

    I am with you Wizake, but Rodrigo seems to think of himself as some sort of expert. Don't try to argue with him, even if you have reasonable arguments and probably a bunch more of proper photography experience... he will just tell you that you are blind and should shut up ;).

    Well no expert here but overall sharpness and colour reproduction is far more better on DENIM with Lumia Camera for me. Can't much talk about other details because i'm not an expert.

    Could be nice if someone really good at it could compare it on Cyan and DENIM.

    But the difference is so huge and so clear that you don't need understand anything about photography to noticed that.

    Denim is so much better that everyone who say otherwise is just blind, crazy or something like that. It's pointless to discuss obvius.

    The Cyan pics on Lumia 930 are like a Galaxy Y or Lumia 530. Denim looks like a real camera. The difference is that big.

    Ok, now you really need to explain which picture is which... Because your post with the picture of the overgrown trailer says the first one is Cyan, so you are thrashing the Denim picture...

    Also... The blurry edges are on both pictures, clean your lens or send it in for warranty, this is not normal.

    Heard that Lumia Camera 5 could do manual focusing DURING video recording. Can someone clarify this? I've seen the demo somewhere on Youtube.

    This is one of my favorite shots.. Getty Villa. Lumia 930. Pre-Denim; Pre-Camera 5. This object was about as big as my thumbnail and the earring looked at first glance like a piece of spiderweb.

    This first image is completely unedited..

    wp_20141221_14_55_39_raw.jpg

    This second image is a result of bringing up shadow areas in Adobe Photoshop Express - done right in the phone..

    adobephotoshopexpress_63a597fe60a142f5a9f69dd1bd1b7b31.jpg

    Lumia Denim & Camera 5 are giving me even better results - almost rivaling what I could do with the 808 2 yrs ago. Almost tempted to go back to the Villa and shoot this again with the update..

    Camera quality has dropped after the Denim update Oversharpened images and unnatural colors.
    The first image is on Cyan and the second on Denim.

    My experience is lot better. Cyan maybe had a little better colour reproduction (but only minor difference) but was blurry and not sharp at all. Denim is far more better for me. Great colour reproduction (in some situation little more saturated) but overall great sharpness (but not really unnatural - plastic like Galaxy S5 from Samsung).

    One more thing, Rich Capture is great assistance, can help you to make your scene perfect on your phone with few clicks.

    It isn't the same time of day, or even the same day. Argument invalid. Anyway, the first picture is completely washed out. The second have huge problems with bad sharpening process.

    Both are very bad. But it is impossible to compare since these pictures have very different ToD.
