    Hello,
    I had this issue too on my 920 and my latest 928. The problem comes when you are using Auto settings for ISO, Shutter Speed and white balance. After talking with an expert photographer I played a little with these settings and voila, perfect photos! The thing you must do is manually adjust some settings if auto mode delivers poor quality. For example, a picture taken outside on a sunny day: on auto mode could get either blurry or overexposed (too much brightness). To get it perfect set iso on either 200 or 400, but try with 200. white balance set manually to sunny.leave everything else auto. If the light outside is bright enough you can try with iso 100 first and see the results. I have tried with iso 200 and the resulting photo was awesome. This applies mostly to ProCam or Nokia Camera but should work very well with stock Camera

    Problem's still there, but the app no longer shows you the pre-processed photo so it's something of a trick.

    I'm now disgusted with Nokia after the last update and this not being fixed. In fact it feels like it's worse.

    To prove that settings has nothing to do with it, I set the camera to fluorescent light balance and ISO 800.

    Here are some sample pictures taken with manual settings on my Lumia 928:
    1. Outside, afternoon ISO 200, white balance sunny, shutter speed automatically set by phone at 1/938
    outside.jpg
    2. Inside, iso 200, white balance auto, shutter speed automatically set by phone at 1/13
    inside.jpg
    3. Ouside at Dusk (late afternoon) ISO 400, White balance manual on cloudy, shutter speed automatically set at 1/25. Being a low light photo I was not so steady with my hands so this one could have gotten better.

    If you could take a picture, immediately take a screenshot and then take another screenshot of the picture again but in the HD viewer, that would show whether you're right or not. Until then, I don't believe you.

    Ok,
    The first picture is before it's saved to the phone, unprocessed. Looks sharper but the overall quality is low, looks undefined:
    unprocessed.jpg

    The second pitcture is the one that was actually saved on the phone, processed.
    processed.jpg

    Bear in mind that taking screenshot of the phone screen degrades overall quality. Take a look at the taken picture, below. I have uploaded it directly from the Camera Roll, and not by screenshooting it from HD Photo.

    I haven't played much with the settings for this photo, took it with ISO 200 and Cloudy White Balance.

    If you want you can flash a preamber firmware and get rid of this issue with photos

    The overall thing to bear in mind with this issue and thread, is that it came IN with the Amber update so it will be solved with a simple fix via a software update (think ala proximity sensor issue). All posts are covering the same point and will need the same fix. So patience is needed for either a specific camera fix, or the full GDR3 update.

    I wanted to take a picture with as many of the camera apps I have and they are pretty much all the same. If anyone knows of any other camera apps I will take a look. Smart Shoot and Nokia Smart Cam don't suffer with post-processing but they have no settings or flash capabilities so I don't consider them proper camera apps.

    Nokia has promised "numerous new camera algorithms," coming with black update. That is early 2014, so I don't think we should be expecting any kind of fix before that.

    That's what they said about amber. They said pictures were sharper than ever.

    Ever indicates comparison with what they had on device before. Also they didn't mention white balance.

    There is indeed a difference between photos taken before and after amber update if you take this issue as general for every user.
    As I have said you can flash a pre-amber firmware to your device if you want to solve this problem until Black comes out and hopefully it will fix the post processing algorithm.
    I can get good results with manual settings but I have to play some time with them until I get the picture I want. For outdoor photos it works better, but for indoor photos I have to struggle to get quality.
    I will flash the pre-amber firmware on my 928, because not always I have time to setup the manual settings. For a quick shot, if I am in a hurry I want also to have great quality and with current post processing algorithm taking pictures in Auto mode is a nono

    I may do the same, just a bit annoyed that I've spent so long playing on Street Outlaws and will lose my saves.

    I have found that Camera360 doesn't apply the tint or blur! The only downside is it only takes 2048x1536 res photos (3.14MP)
