    Please be realistic. How is a smartphone(!) camera, or even any other camera for that matter, supposed to take a photo that looks like it was taken on a bright, sunny day in complete darkness? Through a window! If that was possible, military forces wouldn't have to use infrared technology anymore. ;)

    dKp1977....please shut up! I'm guessing that you've never owned or used a Lumia 1020?
    I own one, and I can vouch for it's great low-light performance...shots that look like they should be dark messages coming out with a good amount of light and detail. The technology that helps here is the Lumia 1020's optical image stabilisation - meaning it can keep it's sensor exposed for longer without camera shake/image distortion. You can set the exposure time up to 4seconds...meaning seemingly pitch-black conditions can yield perfectly usable photos where other, non-OIS devices fail dismally.

    No need to get rude, man. oO I've already admitted I was wrong in the other thread the OP has made. I've owned a 900, a 920 and my daily drivers now are a 1020 and a 1520. So I'm well aware of the capabilities of these devices. Regarding lowlight the 920 outperformed the 1020 and 1520. At least in terms of quality, as most lowlight pictures taken with the latter devices show more noise than those with the 920 did.
    Nevertheless, I've never been able to produce such bright and crisp looking pictures in near complete darkness, which is why I was under the impression the video was faked somehow. But again, I've watched a couple other videos now and it turns out that they are indeed real and my experiences with lowlight conditions were bad because I was obviously not able to use the correct settings.

    I remember taking two photos, one with flash in a almost pitch black room and one with a couple lamps on, they looked pretty similar.

    But without light which is the point, my 920 has taken surprisingly good (although meh quality though, but hey, something's better than nothing) photos in very dark conditions.
    I chalk it up to pretty bad conditions and user-error.

    But that's just from me toying with it.

    I hear that the official update for 8.1 is supposed to make enhancements to the lore light capabilities.i hope so... I just bought a Limits 1520 and I am terribly disappointed 😞. I usually use a 920 that takes low light photos. I like the 1520 but it doesn't compare at all in that regard. No light, bright light, and day light it does fine... But with low light ir anything in between it us just pitiful. Like bed room light dimmer turned to medium, or inside restaurant with low lighting during the day with some day like coming through. Artificial light at work in spaces where the sun doesn't get in much. This is unacceptable. I would honestly rather have my 8mp Lumia 920 with the great camera that does very well in ALL light conditions than these 20 MP that do well in mainly ideal conditions. Hope the official release of 8.1 fixes all of that.
