Lumia 900 sample

Though we're still a few weeks from release with the Lumia 900 on AT&T, that's no reason why we still can't see what the flagship phone can do.

Specifically we're curious about how that Carl-Zeiss 8MP camera performs, especially with the mediocre results from the Lumia 800 (we find the Titan to have the best low light performance). Turns out, Nokia seems to have done a bang up job with the camera as evidenced by some macro-samples found by My Nokia Blog on the forum NeoGAF:

We also managed to get a few sample pics for you guys with low light and flash -- what we consider a crucial test -- and the high ISO performance actually seems quite good. That last photo of the bear is in virtually no light. Sure the ISO is crazy high with heavy noise but considering the horrendous shooting conditions, that's not bad. From all the samples seen, the colors seem quite neutral and natural, which we prefer over the heavy saturation of other cameras e.g. the Focus S.

Looks like those waiting for the Lumia 900 won't be disappointed by the camera (although we are getting a lot of reports that the chrome band around the camera scratches easily, so be warned)
