Windows Phone photography shines in the WPCentral Forums

Photo by Sahkolihaa

The Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X Windows Phones are fitted with some really nice cameras.  While it may be a topic for discussion on which camera is the better of the two, we've got two WPCentral Forums discussions going on that nicely shows off the capabilities of these two Windows Phone cameras.

We have some fantastic shots being shared over in the forums like the one above was taken by Sahkolihaa with the Lumia 920 of a sunrise in England.  You can find the Nokia Lumia 920 photo sharing discussion here and the HTC 8X photo sharing discussion here.  If you have a favorite photo taken with your new Lumia 920 or 8X, head on over to the forums and show them off.  We've got a few more pics after the break.

Windows Phone photography shines in the WPCentral Forums


Ain't it just the best!!! I had doubts about it but it really leaves me breathless. Pictures never looked better from a mobile device!!!

Hi Sam, Do you have a a Lumia 920? If yes, are able to replicate those stunning night shots without having the flash on auto mode? Since i got my Lumia i have not been able to take a picture in a dark room with the Camera on the defaults and with the flash off.
All pictures i take are simply pitch black.

Try Setting the Scene to Night mode, it helps alot. Auto Only does so much on the lumia, thats what I liek about iPhone, its auto setting works amazingly, best out of any smartphone. To bad the iphone though, the Lumia 920 takes better pictures when its set right :p

Ok Thanks. Night mode is kick ass i just tried. However in this vid of the lumia 920, the demo guy from nokia says all the settings are on defaults and the flash is off. Yet the flower pictures comes great. That is where i am a bit confused.

The leaf is just amazing. I'm not going to pay more than a Surface for a Lumia 820 when I already have an HTC Titan ( great device ).


The last picture is at Disney's California Adventure, right at Paradise Pier Bridge.

on 920 you can edit pics with Creative Studio to add sharpness... Its just a software that makes 920's photos look soft at daylight. Though 8X pics are still stunning

Artists images are not showing up in wp 8 Xbox music when a song is played as it used to show up in wp7 zune music :(...
Any Solution??? By the way using Cyan L920 :)

All nice shots, but please don't compare to dslr shots. They don't even come close. On a 4.7 screen you can tell. Blow the picture up on a 23 inch screen....nah...not even close.

I'll settle for missing out on great night shots if the day shots look that amazing! I would rather have the Lumia 920 but since I'm sticking with T-Mobile, I can work with that and I really love the wide angle ffc.

Nope, not me :)
But this guy is hilarious ;)
Look up another video of him unboxing his yellow 920...
Simply EPIC lol :D

the person who did the disney california pic should of took pics of the world of color also, that would of been AMAZING!

I was a bit worried that the camera on the 920 would not live up to the hype. Boy was I wrong! This has to be the best camera I have ever owned on a smart phone..
