    I just got Black on my 928, and I'm severely disappointed. There's less detail + a ton more noise, the green/yellow tint is still present (possibly worse, though it may just seem that way because I'm so upset), and overall the pictures are just not pleasing to the eye. In the pictures posted by Chris Wayne2 up above, the Amber picture looks WAY better to my eyes. Disappointed is the only word I can use to describe my feelings.

    I think this would be my last windows phone unless they will fix the camera algorithms in the next 8.1 update. They are so hyped about adding a lot of features but they forget to fix the main features of lumia.
    Also for me

    Me 2, my brother just got the 5S and I actually quite like it. Camera is night too, all it needs is optical imagine stabilisation and we are only a winner.

    Now that even 928 pics are worse, and Nokia hasn't addressed this issue the way they normally do, we are left to believe only one thing:
    This is a marketing strategy. Nokia wants us to buy their newer phones if we want better pics.

    Well nokia if this is what you want me to do, I won't.
    I can't keep blowing money on new phones. We in india don't have contracts that every one year/two years we can change handsets for cheap cost.
    Will be upgrading my 920 only after ONE MORE YEAR. Want to use it for at least two years.

    Like I said. The lifespan of their support in a specific phone is 2 years. But I think they want to end it for a year only and they want us to buy a new one. My 920 is my last windows phone unless they going to fix the camera algorithm.

    Way better to your eyes does not reflect all opinions in the world, the second picture had better colors overall, better detail as well, but that's only for low light scenarios, daylight pictures are softer but not as much as how they were when the 920 was launched, I don't know why but something tells me that after 8.1 we could say goodbye to further updates to our first gen Lumias, hope I'm wrong, also if you don't like the results using the stock or Nokia Cam you should check other apps.

    Umm I can't really say about windows phone 9, maybe they require quad core chip (1520) or they will optimize it for current gen lumia (dual core ). Windows phone 8.1 will be elgiable for all current lumia , after 8.1 everyone will get GDR updates by Microsoft to further refine 8.1 experince by new features alon with nokia firmware packages.

    Really genius? You do understand what "to my eyes" means, right?

    Any news or rumor if MicroKia will change any algorithm or perhaps will remove post processing in 8.1 update?

    Just wanted to point out that there are like 4 people complaining about it, I don't think they would change the algorithm for just some random users, have you tried Photoshop to get the results you want?

    it's not 4 people are complaining about, I paid a lot for this ''camera phone'', if you're happy with it, congratulations, I'm not.

    Portico update made the camera awesome, with nice colors (for me), and amber was at the same level, but black ruined, although it has more detail, colors seems washed out..

    Yes, we shall complain for juha to fix it, that's not how 920 was launched, it was a drastically change, if the camera was like THIS, I wouldn't buy it anymore. They should make better what they launched, not making drastically changes and dividing opinions

    Well, I agree with you on that last one, the iPhone does not have this kind of problems, overall they seem pretty ok with the camera, have you tried other cam apps?

    Does anybody tried video recording with Black update? I record a lot of videos of the concerts i go and last one was with Amber and it was good but with all the fuzz going on about camera with Black update i'm concerned about the video quality and sound quality too.

    You have to look in a certain way to be able to notice. If you didn't notice then you would never be aware of the issue in the first place.

    All camera apps except Camera 360 use Nokia's Camera API so they will all come out the same. Look a few post back and posted pictures of every camera app.
