    I also want to use Nokia Camera without these problems but for now it's not possible. I tried Camera 360 which doesn't have this problem as I have seen till now. I will test further.

    Camera 360 is very difficult to test because it only takes low res images unlike all the others which take the full 8mpx

    Guys, this is a green tint, not yellow. Try to use some app for edit image (like Thumba) and lower the green balance. That's it, you will have a perfect photo, identical to the photo before post processing. I've noticed that green tint don't happens all the time. Only in some low light conditions and / or flash on.

    But I haven't noticed any problems with sharpness or noise control. Only this green tint and some conditions, not all.

    So, that's it, green tint, not yellow. Again: Lumia 925 here. But my father have a Lumia 920 and will try to make some tests.

    Thumba is exactly what I use on my 928 (still on Amber, for the record), and it works well for the purpose of fixing the color, but saving the photo reduces the quality. Also, we shouldn't have use third-party apps for this...the purpose of this camera is to point and shoot. I wish that Nokia would leave the post processing to the users instead of trying to force what they think works best.

    You are right. This phone should be point and shoot. At the moment color balance fixes the yellowish pictures using 3rd party app but come on that is hassle. Portico does not have this yellowish and blurry/softening problem.

    Absolutely true... Photo qualities in Portico were way better and sharper than this stupid Black update. I've kind of started disliking Nokia updates. Pheww....

    It started on Amber Update. My front facing camera is now unusable because I look like a Simpson when taking self photo using it. Try it.

    this for windows phone feature suggestion page, you should consider contact nokia about this, since Microsoft have nothing to deal with this, oem (nokia ) seeds these firmware update(black, amber).

    Yep FFC is better on my VGA Lumia 620, while we should have here 1,2MB (according to some reviews i saw that the FFC on Lumia920 is usable for selfies pictures and skype). Seems like all the Lumias (even the low end) get better support then the leader of the gang L920.

    I have the yellowish tint still and blurred images post black update. I used 4Blend HDR for this :) and any idea why the Image file size is in KB....too small :/ 200KB 300KB >:( rarely it hits 2MB once in a blue moon I mean and that too with the Nokia Camera App. This pic was around 800KB (tolerable)

    I think you mean 100% unusable. Damn that post processing! My Old N70 and E72 take better Front facing photo than my 920.
