    I don't expect 1020 and 925 customers to look at this post but if they do, has Black fixed the issue?
    Yep, it appears it has fixed this tint issue from what I've seen/heard. Take a look at this article and this one as well. In the first article, he actually says the following:

    One of the achilles heels of the Nokia Amber image processing was a slight yellow tint to flash-illuminated photos, but Black seems to have sorted this out.
    The second article has some good Amber to Black comparison shots as well. The true test is obviously getting Black on our 920's and finding out for ourselves, but it certainly sounds positive :)

    It's total bullcrap. iphone 4 takes better pictures. I can see that this issue isn't going to be fixed for 920 users and while 1020 and 1520 users will get RAW as a workaround, it doesn't fix the problem.

    I am going to take a before and after picture so that when EE finally release Black in a few centuries, I will know for sure.

    In fact, looking at the second article from the above post at the top of this page, Black makes the pictures even softer than they were before.

    I use the Thumba Photo Editor 920 with correction settings enabled by default, the problem is that the new photo will be saved in "saved picture", you have to replace the older.

    So updated to Black. Only thing i like (currently) is the multitasking "X". Camera same softens like earlier, i really hoped that we will get some "love" from Nokia. But we got screwed.

    P.S These who say that IP4 has a better camera well dunno what you looking at, my buddy has a IP4s and I still take better pictures then him. But the postprocesing is really killing the L920.

    I have reports from 925 and 920 users that the excessive softening is NOT fixed. The comparison was made with Nokia Camera App,stock Camera App, ProCam and Camera360 which seems to be the only app that is not affected by Nokia's algorithm.
    Both photos taken with Nokia Camera and stock camera came out with great loss of sharpness and detail while those taken with Camera360 came out stunning!
    Tests were made on outdoor photos. This is not ok, users have expected a fix from Nokia but they have failed to deliver.

    :/ maybe they are neglecting Lumia 920, they want to focus only on new phones and upcoming phones.

    Well this is disappointing to hear, especially after hearing early reports of good photos on the 1020 and some on the 925 as well. It appears it's not as good as it initially sounded then, at least with the 925 and our 920's. I'll take some pics with mine just before updating to Black (whevener EE release the update though) and see if I can spot any improvements with mine, but I'm not that confident now.

    920 has been released on September 2012. I have saved money for 6 months to be able to buy my 920 on November 2013. My main issue on the camera of my 920 is the softening and yellowish post processing produced by the default camera or Nokia Camera. I was hoping to get a natural and sharp photo by Black update. I am so disappointed. It seems like 920 has been phased out of their support. Look how you take photos. It is sharp and wonderful bu after 2 seconds it become blurry.

    camera beta is for our 920? i thought it was for other lesser camera centric devices only, so does this supercede/improve on the latest gdr3/lumia black camera app in the 920?

    My thoughts are that Nokia screwed up this algorithm for older devices in purpose, to make users buy latest ones. I cannot find any other reason why, for so long, no one at Nokia was able to detect these problems..
    Please do test with Camera Beta and post the results. Also download the XAP from the store and save it on your PC. Who knows what Nokia might do to it in the next updates. (this in case it really works and provides better results, notable.)

    i assume you own a 920. why not download the nokia camera beta onto your 920 and do the tests you want? surely what you see with your eyes on your own 920 is what matters.

    It would be better for us if more users will post examples. This way we can see if there is a sw update issue and a reflash might fix it, or if it's an algorithm problem which was not fixed by Nokia. Weird thing is why is the stock camera app affected?

    Maybe (but maybe) they don't know how to fix it?
    When we look at it, this bug won't force me to buy a new phone so that ain't their goal, nor its making our devices useless. Maybe its like i am defending them but i don't know, its either they don't know how to solve this bug, or they are sitting in their chairs and thinking these idiots think we care.
