Gauge your Windows Phone camera performance with CamSpeed


Cool idea but doesn't seem to work very well with the online results, as my Lumia smashed the top time but isn't showing...

Did you publish your result, by tapping the result from list and clicking publish?
And when browsing/finding your result, make sure the correct resolution is selected (same as the one you took your image with).
Online result webpage will be updated soon to be easier to use and to find results :) .. like tomorrow.

No really, the Trophy cam is garbage. Even in outdoor sun where is it best, zooming in shows compression artifacts. In any sort of average light its pretty bad, and the flash pre-fires so brightly that the victims, I mean subjects, eyes will be closed. Forget it in dim light. Also, the time between release to capture can go close to 4 seconds. Worthless for toddler pictures I tell you.

Indeed. There have been times when I thought it was done taking a photo, only to move the phone and have the final image come out blurry. I've only had one picture I didn't despise with the zoom, but it was full of noise.

We're also talking about phones, devices where photo and video recording is a secondary feature. If you want quality photos and video, you need a device where that feature is the primary feature. (Yeah, but... Yeah, but... Yeah, but...)

I can understand digital zoom being terrible, but the Trophy has a lot of noise in regular pictures.  Literally EVERY picture I've taken indoors has a noticable yellow tint (no white balance settings on it). Maybe I was just spoiled with the Focus' camera/settings.
