Nokia Lumia 800 getting update for its camera
The camera on the back of the Nokia Lumia 800 is supposed to be taking great pictures. After all, it has an 8MP sensor and a Carl Zeiss-certified lens. But something is not working out right and Nokia's Damian Dinning sent out a tweet to say that an update is coming although there is no specific date in mind. Last month, when Nokia stated that an update had repaired a problem that the phone was having with the battery, the Finnish based manufacturer admitted that there was an issue with the camera and that it would not be overlooked.

Apparently the problems with the camera are a software issue which is why Nokia is hopeful that this update on the way will allow the camera to reach its full potential. Late last month, word started leaking out about problems that Nokia Lumia 800 users were having with settings to the camera.

Recently we told you about a camera cowboy shootout between the shooters on the Nokia Lumia 800, the Sony Xperia S, the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Apple iPhone 4S. The Lumia 800's camera made a good showing, but finished behind the Sony Xperia S as far as how quickly the camera app took to open on the phone.

But Windows Phones don't have any issues! I mean, isn't that the impression that Ben Rudolph and Microsoft have tried to create with their DroidRage bulls**t?

Whether it's an issue with the OS or the devices, this still flies in the face of the idea that Windows Phones are perfect creations, as they would have you believe.

The main issue being had with windows phones is poor sales and lack of any main public desire for them!

the only camera issue I know about that device is it does not have a front facing camera. I prefer the lumia 900

I'm lovin' my Lumia 800, have had since it came out in France a couple months ago. But yeah, the camera is a BIG let down. Daytime shots are not bad, but once it gets even slightly dark, there's a greenish hue on every picture, even when the flash isn't needed.
