Nokia Lumia 800

I had the Nokia Lumia 800 on a trial basis for a few days to check out its 8mp camera. The results of the camera are on my pages from http://365project.org/magiceye/365/2012-06-07 to http://365project.org/magiceye/365/2012-06-18 albeit with a bit of tweaking in crop and contrast.
My opinion - It is good for macros and landscapes. The zoomed pictures are noisy. Does not handle light very well. Not good for low light photography.
Overall impression about the camera - Not impressive at all.

  4. haha. yes, you cannot compare 800's camera with N8's or other flagship devices. not sure why but there is lot of noise. HD videos though look amazing. I had similar issue while testing X7 and N9. Maybe, we need to wait for pureview Windows Phone devices.

  5. I got rid of the first one thinking that the phone was defective with the camera issue on the latest firmware (12070) and also not forgetting to mention I had terrible battery life on the previous firmware (11500) but the camera was fantastic on it.
