    If you upload photos or video from the phone to OneDrive they are compressed for uploading unless you change the settings. Copy them directly from your phone to your computer to get full resolution.
    Compression does not add noise, it just lowers overall quality. Noise is caused by increasing the ISO. Increasing the ISO, increases the sensitivity by amplifying the signal. In doing so you increase the signal to noise ratio which creates noise.

    Are there any apps that give you manual control in video? If we could shoot RAW video with full manual control, that would be the best. I think you'd see some amazing quality coming out of the 1520 and Icon. The main issue is the software overcompensating in my opinion. I'd rather have a slightly darker video with low noise and then edit that video in post production.

    However, for me, in a more general photography sense, if I know I'm going to do some serious low light filming and want the best result, I'll just bring along my DSLR with its APS-C sensor and zoom lens - the quality is just so much better than any smartphone could ever be that it's worth the extra hassle depending on the situation. Obviously you can't always plan on having your DSLR along, but for the important events, I would have my best camera with me.
    Unfortunately none that I know of. I searched the WP store and there are not that many dedicated video capture apps. And the ones that I found had very poor ratings.

    or use Pocket File Manager to directly upload the .DNG raw images.

    I have the same problem also, I had a lumia 920 since December 2012. The quality of low light video has went downhill.

    For example,

    This has been a huge disappointment for me coming from the 928, which excelled at low light. I was able to do several second exposures (using a tripod) with admirable results on my 928, even in the dark of night. Forget it with the Icon, even at dusk. Maybe we will eventually get Adobe Photoshop Express with noise reduction on the Icon. I shoot on my cell phone so I can post in real time.

    Oh how I long for the days where I didn't have 50 people holding up cell phones in front of me at a concert....
