I go Through the above mentioned thread , and its all about tutorial of photography , and get to know the functions of buttons and settings ,..........

i would like to mention here ,
i am a photographer and have a Nikon DSLR d5100, and used Nokia n97mini, for clicking purpose ....
i m aware all these things abt photography tutorials and settings ....

but the point is abt the 6.1 carl ziess lens of the lumia 720 is not much powerful ,
pictures comes very soft ,grainy and bursting pixles after processing from the camera by default.

Hi
I have a 720 also and I tend to think that the picture quality was better before the amber update. But it is difficult to verify really.
And I had a N97 Mini few years ago (I still have it actually) and yes I also think the pictures came out clearer and sharper.
The Lumia 720 is pretty much a price entry phone while the N97mini was a high end model when it came out and it's very possible that the sensor in the N97mini is bigger than on the 720 (no idea here, just a guess). Maybe it's also a matter of how windows phone process the image compared to Symbian. From what I read Symbian seemed to do a better job here.

I wouldn't completely agree to it. The Lumia 720 has a fantastic camera. I've attached some pics taken from my phone. And yes they were taken after the Amber update.

IMO, the Lumia 720 camera is amazing, was better pre-Amber though. i took amazing pictures specially closeups, now its just meh.

I stopped taking pictures lately, cuz what ever i do, i'm not really satisfied, whats bugging me the most is the post processing of the Nokia Cam Pro.. agggg.

I think your first 2 pics have pretty good IQ for a phone. I don't think I ever got such result with my 720. The last 2 are basically what I have as a result, too noisy and not very sharp to my point of view (not criticizing your pics, just my opinion). But my opinion is probably biased by the fact that I carry my DSLR with me very often so I usually have a better option than my phone to take a photo.

We can't just simply compare the Lumia 720 6.7 MP f1/1.9 cam to a D5100. For its price, its one of the best cam phones around.

Try manual settings in ProCam. Results are much better if you know how to fiddle with the settings.

Sure we cannot compare, that's why I say my opinion is biased here. And yes for the price it's pretty good. Hope they can fix the picture processing issue in pro cam because appart from that pro cam is great and the UI really well done. I will do a test maybe today lunch time with the manual settings see how it goes...

I don't own a dslr yet I can tell that after the GDR2+amber the photos appear even more grainy. I hate when an update creates a problem.

I even more hate it when camera360 slows down like hell.

Uhmmm... I have the same trouble with the smart camera app but not with the nativity cam app. My Lumia 720 takes good photos. Maybe is just opinion, don't know. Post a photo. (sorry if my grammar is bad. English isn't my mother language.)

I hate this
some time ago they confirm double tap2 wake won't be in 720
OK I will accept that

then after Amber Update for 720, problem coming from Camera, battery and else
I just think Microsoft really forget about low-end device and just give nonstable update for us :(

Hi,

Recently i bought Lumia 720. I noticed that the pictures captured from the cam are not sharp. They look too grainy. I have Amber running on my device. How to overcome this. It is very disappointing. how come 6.7 carl Zesiss can produce such dirty images. If the camera is such bad, Lumia 720 is a useless product.

Please guys help me out :confused::unhappysweat:

The camera quality had degraded after Amber. But things will improve after Black goes live and Nokia Camera is available for all devices officially. That said, little grainy pics don't make this phone useless. Check the pics I've posted above. Isn't that bad to crib about.

Hi

I Noticed the quality degraded after updating to amber but if you upgrade to GDR3 you will notice a slight improvement on the picture quality (well that's the feeling i have since i upgraded). Also keep in mind that Carl Zeiss or not it is still a very small sensor so you are very likely to have a decent amount of noise, that is just the way it is with small sensors.
Also I think that because it has a very large aperture F1.9 it will never be suited for landscapes or any photo that has details to be shown on a distant background. For landscapes you need depth of field and a f1.9 simply cannot give you that. On the contrary it performs pretty well for close ups or photos where the background isn't too distant because what you need in this case is shallow depth of field and that's exactly what a f1.9 is good at. If you process the photos in a software like rawtherapee it makes it close to perfect (but it doesn't help for landscapes).

So if you make sure the subject is well lit and that the background isn't too distant then you should have pretty good results. Maybe you can play with the white balance also, it can help.
