First camera samples from the Nokia Lumia 720

First camera samples from the Nokia Lumia 720
We managed to snap two quick shots with Nokia's newest mid-range Windows Phone 8 warrior, the Lumia 720

The camera on the device is one of its big selling points, as it features a 6.7 MP module on the back with extremely large for a smartphone aperture of f/1.9 that allows more light in, resulting in better low-light performance.

Granted, what we used to shoot those pictures below is a preproduction model and there will be more tweaking before it has shelves, and the lighting conditions at these expos are not favorable to testing cameras, but we are sharing the results anyway with these caveats, so you can have a rough idea about the camera's performance.

dicemoney: my DSLR takes better pictures too, but it also costs a lot more, as do the other smartphones that you have mentioned. Hence, your point is moot*

I don't know what pitures you've been looking at but as far as ALL the comparisons i've seen between iphone 5 and the Lumia 920, the Lumia takes better pictures. Maybe you need to go have your eyes examined.

it would be unfair to compare any camera phone with 808 and the same might even go for 920 typin this from my awesome yellow 920
