    I am excited about the ability to not show all pictures on the live tile.. is that sad? >.<

    Also this looks awesome... maybe with Nokia and MS becoming one, I wont need a separate Nokia Camera app and can just use the default one.

    I hope Windows Phone 8.1 will fix the yellowish and blurry camera algorithm/post processing in Lumia 920.

    It's really important for the MS Camera app to be insanely great. I mean on iOS who uses anything but the Camera app except for using photo-taking apps like Instagram?

    This is already possible in WP8, by adding photos to favorites in the photos hub and using 'shuffle background'. Only the photos you added to favorites will show up on the live tile (you might need to wait for 30 mins for the changes to appear on the tile).

    Right but what I mean is when they join, there would be no reason for nokia's camera app to be separate and not integrated into the OS since they would be 1 company now. So the Microsoft Camera should really be an improved Nokia Camera. So I hope.

    Hdr ?
    +1 pureview cameras NEED hdr! I can't believe Nokia/Microsoft are lagging so much on this. The best thing about pureview is the lowlight performance, the worst part of pureview is the blown out lights in your night time pictures. HDR would perfect this.

    I REAAAALLY hope this ''microsoft camera'' puts an end to the current terrible post processament of the photos, they put a green hue or yellowish sometimes, I hope changes were made..

    The UI seems nice, i'll use it instead of nokia camera if they fix this ''hue'' issue, and all basic functions (flash, for example) are easily visible, while on nokia camera it's such a small icon..

    So, nokia camera for when I need more control on the photo for landscapes or something and daily microsoft camera, fast and simple =), and for CHRIST SAKE, I can't take these hues any longer, it was on the 920 and now even more on the 925

    I should have specified, like oonly Lumia 1520, since the stock camera does not take a high res shot along with the 5mp shot, it would be nice to be able to specify what size shots you wanna take - to take advantage of my 20 mp sensor with the stock camera.

    +1520 , I am still on old Lumia 920 :( , how is the 1520's 20MP when compared to older devices like my 920 ? , I know this a lame question comparing 8.7 MP pure view with 20MP :-p

    I came from a 920 and my wife currently still has hers, though the 920 is a great camera in itself, the 1520 takes amazing photos , in daylight the 1520 is hands down much better, though the low light is more hit or miss. It seems to me the 920 is superior in low light photos with no flash used. Also the video in low light on the 1520 needs some tweaking via firmware as its really grainy.

    Thanks! I am waiting for Lumia 930 , I am not at all comfortable with 6" phones ,4/4.5 is perfect for my hand :)
    I will surely gift my Lumia 920 to my mom , she is using Lumia 520 at moment , she wont' feel a dramatic change since she does not play games or capture images but it will be nice for her to carry Lumia 920 :D (she loved glance feature though)

    This picture was taken on a windy day with the humming bird moving quite a bit, this thing was not staying still.
    Taken with Lumia 928 - WP8, using the Default Camera, not the Nokia Camera.
    I don't think the Nokia Camera App actually does as well.
    I will need to do some more testing though. I will try some low light etc.... and post back.

    Ok,, so you wanted more comparisons, here you go....
    Remember, this is the Default Camera App,,, not the Nokia Camera App

    This first one is with flash in a completely dark room, No other light at all from anywhere.
    I think I shook a little bit just as the shutter snapped.

    wp_20140316_009.jpg

    These next pictures it is hard to tell any real difference in the quality.
    For being as low light as they are, they are not horrible.
    Either App works in this type of lighting.

    This next one is in a dark room with some monitor light, but the Hakko is kinda behind a monitor.
    There is very very little light actually on it.
    Default Camera, no flash, no other settings

    wp_20140316_012.jpg

    This next picture is from the Nokia Camera App, with all settings to default or Auto and no Flash
    wp_20140316_21_56_19_pro.jpg

    I can say though, I have had better results over all with the Default Camera App vs the Nokia Camera App
