    I may as well quote Stephen Elop's "It's an embarrassing device" when it comes to videos. I dare not share or show my videos to my friend because of the sub-par quality. I have been a long time Nokia user and have always trusted their great camera phones (from N8, 808, 920) but this is really embarrassing.

    I will give it a bit longer before I give up on Nokia trying to help with the performance in videos, will move on to a phone/company that can......such a shame.

    Have you guys checked out this review of the 1520 video camera by an amateur cinematographer? I thought it was nice to see how a skilled videographer uses the video camera - much better than most amateur test clips that are out there.

    I found another very good review of this phone's camera capabilities on DP Review.com, a reputable digital photography website, that did a very thorough review. From their samples, I'd say the low-light video quality is exactly what I would expect from the device. No, you're not going to be able to get no noise with horrendous lighting conditions (ie. walking around in a pitch black night) but if you've got some light to work with, the sensor does an admirable job at picking it up. See for yourselves in the samples they post!

    Here's the review - Video: Nokia Lumia 1520 camera review: Connect

    Not sure if this was posted anywhere else but I saw this news item and thought immediately of this thread:

    Better video quality is promised in a "Cyan" update for the 1520 (and Icon/930).
