    Guys, first of all sorry for so many threads about 920. But I want quick answers so I'm creating threads as my Lumia is new and want to check if my phone is faulty or not, cause I guess in my country I can replace my phone within 7 days of purchase only..
    First I had some overheating bug but after I updated to amber it went away. Now, I'm quite happy with my phone and no worries except for one, low light video recording isn't anywhere close to low light photography and is very grainy in low light and visibly grainy even in moderate light.. I can see the same grainyness in viewfinder of still camera too, but I think post processing removes it in case of pictures. Is this how it is supposed to be or is my camera faulty? Please reply quick!! Thanks!

    From my photographical knowledge, I would say that you cannot compare video to photo in this case. The image enhancement works due to the OIS in the camera. When taking photos, an OIS lets you have a longer shutter speed, which makes "brighter photos". In moving pictures (videos), a longer shutter speed would make no sense, because you have to record in realtime. So in video recording there is "only" the less shaky image and no low light enhancement.

    In other words, it's suppose to be grainy w/o an adequate light source. Though you'll at least get great sound, however.

    Well.. Got what you said.. But in artificial light in the nights when there is enough light, it still appears to be visibly grainy. Is the grainyness visible on all 920's?

    And guys, it stutters a bit here and there. Before Amber, it was silky smooth. Shall I do a reset?
