Nice lil' images from this device. Look at the clarity or the indoor image of the two girls. Impressive for a relatively low res image- ideal size for general snaps and web sharing.

This review must have been written before Jan 2014 in spite of the May 2014 date.
1) The phone being used does not have the Lumia Black update installed - This update both OS and Nokia FW improves the cameras operation, light balance, focus, and others, as well as adds the option of storing 34mb DNG (RAW) files or 34mb JPG's, along with the 5mp jpg's. The RAW DNG's can be edited in most all of the high end photo editors including Adobe products and Corel's PSP. In addition the CON that optical Zoom has been left out and is included in other smartphones is a bit looney. This phone will take the 34mp photos and allow them to be zoomed in (call it whatever) and still end up with a higher resolution image than the other phones. There is also Burst mode, timer mode, bracketing, and so on. What smartphone has digital zoom? I thought, and I may be wrong but they use digital zoom vs actually move the lens. Oh well, I like all this stuff and try in earnest not to be a fanboy for anyone. There are also mucho other camera apps that all have strengths and weaknesses vs Nokia Camera. Some of the better ones include 'ProShot, which does not do DNG but will allow changes in the format and resolution, currently up to 14mp.
enjoy, "The best camera you can have, is the one with you"
