    Yep, not placebo.But the sharpness issue is still there: some parts of the photo look unfocussed

    Nokia tweeted to me "Thanks. The last week update was to the camera application only. No changes to image settings."

    you see, i find this hard to swallow...that there is no change to image settings, as i am now noticing less yellowing of my own photos, and others have posted as such, above.

    They are denying there's a problem so I wonder if they are fixing it on the sneak

    I kicked up a fuss in Phones4u about the phone having a blown speaker so instead of waiting for a 3rd lot of 2-week repairs, they've promised me a replacement. Fingers crossed.

    Please clean your lens before taking shots , just mop it with your shirt or something to get much much clearer photos.

    the lens are not the problem. the pictures are not sharp, too much softening is applied.

    It seemed that my 920 took much better pictures before the Amber update-- I was amazed at the quality--now, not so much, although it's still an improvement, somewhat, over the Lumia 900.

    In a German speaking forum they dont have this problems, It must be production variations. Many of the pics show there are lightyears better than before Amber

    Look for yourself
    Nokia Lumia 920 - Fotoqualität Seite 115 - Nokia Lumia 920 - Windows Phone 8 Forum
    (scroll to the end, there are more examples)

    I would like to ave this quality with a Lumia 925 ...

    well my new white 920.1 simfree arrived a couple of days ago. after reading this thread whilst waiting for it to arrive, i was a little concerned how the camera would be with the latest amber update. to be honest i'm more than happy with the results. all pics were taken with flash off, all else to auto.

    sorry for the bathroom shots but i wanted to see how whites came out and that is pretty much as white as it gets in my flat generally from what i have seen i prefer the nokia camera results vs just the stock camera app.

    Production variations! A few have very very good cameras while the majority have bad units... It's Nokia....

    guess i am pretty lucky so far then. what makes it sweeter is the 920 only cost me £230 simfree & new last week. back it march 13 when i trialled it for a week, it was £500. couldn't justify it then so returned that unit but coudn't resist it again when i saw the prices now.

    Good news:
    Nokia Black firmware solves the issue because there is a review of Nokia 1520 that says:
    " It has the same camera technology as the 4.5-inch Lumia 1020, though a software fix gets rid of the 1020's tendency to make images too yellow. "
    :-)))))

    we are wainting for the nokia black upgrade :-)

    Before i sold my Lumia 920, i can safely say the Amber update caused my 920 to generate poorer picture quality than pre-Amber (which was incredible). The blurriness of pictures was much more frequent, too bad because i loved the camera and got a lot of amazing summer pictures.
