    Both the crappy low light images as well as that annoying purpleness and crappy ViewFinder are the same I have on my 930 and that is also present on the 7 930's I've tested in stores around town.

    I've reached to Juha Alakarhu (Twitter ‏@jalakarhu) about the crappy algorithms that are producing that much noise and grain on the photos in low light.
    And I've reached to Nokia Care (Twitter ‏@NokiaHelps) about the grainy image in low light on the ViewFinder. They've escalated the complaint to the imaging team.

    I suggest you all do the same. The more people complain about the same things, the quicker they'll understand that it's a problem with the way the software is programmed and hopefully fix it.
    i have the same issue on my lumia 720!! i think its a software thing since the black update

    Unless it is a widespread problem (doesn't seem to be given the photos and videos I've seen), call them manufacturing flaws. With the PS4 for example, at least 5% of PS4s manufactured WILL have a flaw in them, and that's something that cannot be controlled, regardless of what software or firmware they have. Similar case for phones.
    Yes, but, if the camera is defective why take very good pictures in day only in night appear this purple flickering (when I move the phone) and in video mode the purple flickering not appear but is darkest. and one person in Nokia forums says that he sent the phone back to Nokia and Nokia said that everything is OK (the phone had the purple flickering too) but, Nokia damaged his phone and returned other phone with the same flickering.

    This is very confusing for me...

    for time lapse use this app
    Timelapse Pro | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (India)
    for a faster opening speed,use ms camera app
    for HDR,use camera360 or proshot

    just thought it might help people looking for these options :)

    The new updates didn't change anything about low light, guess this camera made for a day light only :)
    BTW - if everyone with this camera module (930/929/1520) move their device in very dark place (or outside at night) on camera app they'll see these purple flickering, its releted to every devices (as mention), maybe it would better on manual settings (lower ISO, changing white balance, ...)

    Awesome!
    ISO?
    White Balance?
    Any other settings? With automatic setting you'll never get this great results.
    On low light you must use manual settings.

    BTW - with one shot camera app if you move the device/camera pretty quick did you notice the purple shadow on the screen (Even though the shots took fine)? If you any see this on the original lumia camera?
    (Only on full dark/very very low light - could do it under a blanket or something to get a full dark if its not dark enough outside)
