    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 :-)

    It's not thaaaat bad, I agree it could be a lot better, but the photos are still amazing, but nokia seriously needs to get the work done, 1 year since 920 was launched and they still couldn't find algorithms good enough to take out the most of this powerful camera

    I agree, they're not terrible. Yes, they need improving, or even just putting it back to pre-Amber, but I took a lot of pictures with the 920 on a recent holiday and many came out absolutely great.

    if pictures of the holiday season are really that important to you and you feel the 920 will 'ruin' your moments, use a camera

    This is no way to solve an issue: "If you don't like it, use something else", no, if Nokia is thinking like you do they are going to loose a lot. That ***** who made the new camera processing algorithm should get another pair of glasses or take a second set of photography courses.

    They are focussing on the 1020 and 1520 now.... Oder "PureView" devices are not so important to Nokia anymore.

    I thought the Lumia 920 was 'supposed' to be a camera!

    well this thread http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...our-920-a.html shows there are plenty of users who have taken shots recently who have zero problems with their units so it cannot be a software issue and must be hardware related. if you have faulty hardware, can your units not be returned as faulty under warranty?

    The people who have taken "good" pictures, have not taken comparison pictures i.e a screenshot of the preview then a screenshot of it in the HD Viewer. The pictures look 'kinda' good if you don't compare them with the original. We have 3 920s in our home and all have the same issue.

    i'm trying to understand. why are you getting the 'softening' you mention to your pics that i'm just not seeing in mine? if it was as you say a software issue, wouldn't i get the softening too?

    Nokia Camera updated. Slight tint reduction or placebo?

    Before update:

    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.

    I don't think you are noticing it. Follow these instructions:

    Take a photo and IMMEDIATELY take a screenshot you get this:


    and then click the viewer icon in the top right corner and wait a couple of seconds and take another screenshot you get this:



    From sharp to sh*t. Obviously not caused by hardware or it wouldn't be able to take a nice picture at the beginning. I took those in pitch black with FA light & flash.

    And as has already been discussed 100 times, it's not because it's being viewed on the phone and not a PC, it's the same anywhere you put the picture.

    P.S These are new pictures taken on my new yellow 920, not the old ones taken from early in this thread.

    I think the Lumia Black update may fix this issue, or at least improve the quality, as Black does apparently include new camera processing algorithms. We'll know one way or another within the next couple of months.

    By the way, I just found this article
    Exploring the imaging improvements in Nokia Black for the Lumia 1020
    Its looks like Nokia have acknowledged this image processing issue. Time to celebrate!

    Hopefully black is able to solve this green tint problem. Currently what i do is remove the green tint by using fantasia painter's "rgb colour balance" ( adjust the green colour to a certain minus value ). hope this helps.

    I am also experiencing this camera bug when using Nokia Camera or default built-in camera. The image taken by camera looks amazing but after 2 seconds it became yellowish. I also tried the front camera and it is far worse than my previous nokia N70. I look like a yellowish sick person when using front camera of my lumia 920.

    I don't expect 1020 and 925 customers to look at this post but if they do, has Black fixed the issue?
