    I don't expect anyone here to sit and watch all this, but I'll post a link for demonstration. I work in the sound booth at my church, and since I got my Icon, I wanted to see just how good it is at video, and post some sermon videos online for my church. The video isn't as good as it could be, because I had to run it through Handbrake to compress it from more than 13 GB down to under 2 GB to be able to upload it to my church's OneDrive account. What really impresses me is the audio of this thing. If you look around the 25:30 mark, you'll see we're not a quiet church by any stretch of the imagination. We get with the Spirit. And if you're feeling like seeing our kids sing, look around 34:00 for them getting up and singing for Easter Sunday.

    And let me tell you - I work the sound booth and the sound at this part of the video, even upstairs in the sound booth, is just beyond the edge of painful to the ears. This phone handles it VERY well.

    I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I can't even take pictures close to these. Maybe because I don't do a lot of outdoor sunny shots.

    1st, make sure all your settings are on auto.
    2nd, make sure your lens is clean (smudges from your fingers will make images look awful)
    3rd, check your focus assistant light, that can help too.
    4th, experiment with manual settings.

    Also, there are two main camera apps, the main windows phone one and the Nokia camera. if you are using one, try the other.

    If all that fails, maybe to into a Microsoft store if you have one near by and just ask someone, they can most likely see what's going wrong.

    My daughter got a shot of me on the track at Ford Racing school. She used the smart sequence and then used the action shot. I like the motion blur effect:temporary_zps2957caa5.jpg

    Was playing around with Low light slow shutter speed shot from my balcony - no tripod used, just holding the phone. Would probably be much better with a tripod, but it still looks pretty sick. I tried the same type of shot on my wifes iphone 5s - not possible.

    Lumia ICON / 930 has 6 lens camera. How are the low light images? Is it same as 1520 or slightly better because of 6 lens?

    My chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association hosted retired Delta Captain Ron Alexander's 1939 DC-3 at Briscoe Field in Lawrenceville, GA this weekend. I got to fly in this beauty. This shot was taken with HDR Photo Camera. First is the original, and second is with the Enhanced filter in the app. I LOVE how the enhanced copy looks. I should note that I didn't realize that the app had hi-res processing until well after I took this shot. Hi-res processing is now on, but wasn't in the shot.

    And here's a link to the video I shot of it pulling up after one of the flights.

    Something that anyone who has ever shot digital video of an aircraft will notice is that the propellers are correct in the video. Most phones and digital cameras that are not expensive do not properly render a rotating propeller (or other rotating devices) correctly because of the way they capture the image. Instead of looking like they are rotating, you often see what looks like shutters - multiple horizontal lines moving down, rather than rotational motion. The Icon captures it very well. I didn't think to try adjusting the frame rate, to see if I'd get better reproduction of the rotation or not. It would be nice to be able to adjust the "shutter" speed, in order to do this.

    Here are a few. The focus seems to be a bit off even though I thought I had focused correctly.

    Does anyone know how to upload a video to a social network, like Facebook, with the same clarity as when you view it on the phone. Everytime I upload a video, the quality on Facebook looks bad. I tried uploading straight from my phone and from one drive. Will appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

    I am pretty sure any video uploads directly from the phone will be downgraded, just due to the size. If you plug your phone into your computer and just do a copy/paste from the phone to your computer then you will have the original video resolution on your computer and will have a better chance of uploading to social networks.

    Not only will the phone upload a compressed version, but facebook will further compress it. The only way you're going to get the original quality is to host the video somewhere else (Photobucket, Flickr, OneDrive) and put a link to the original on facebook.
