Lumia Black update improves color accuracy on the Nokia Lumia 925's camera
posted by Alan F. / Jan 10, 2014, 1:37 PM
A published report on Friday compared pictures taken by a Nokia Lumia 925 before and after the update. And the bottom line is that colors appear to be more accurately reproduced after the update.
We've included some of the comparisons in the slideshow below. Compare the pictures taken before ("Amber") and after ("Black") the installation of the update. Keep in mind that the Nokia Lumia 925 offers a PureView camera and you might not see results like this with all Lumia phones after the update. Whether you have an eye for photography or not, your comments are welcome just the same.

So every phones are controlled by Oem to make the camera to take a sharper better picture... How funny. So Digital and Dslr don't need updates. So isn't there a device where no updates are required, but given a quality camera. Even the 1020 relys on software updates. So you rather better of buying Adobe photoshop, or other apps to make progress.....

The best format of pictures to make them better in graphic apps is RAW. Only Nokia Lumias have currently RAW support.

When we say "digital" cameras, it's important to remember that more goes into the image quality than just the optics. Two cameras with the same sensors and the same lenses can produce different results because one may have a better software process that produces better image files. This is true for professional digital cameras as well, not just smartphones -- that's why you'll see so many people in the enthusiast camera market that care about firmware updates. Smartphone cameras are severely limited in quality by physical limitations, therefore it is in the manufacturer's best interest to at least try to keep improving what they can on the software side. Finally, Photoshop and other apps are what you would call "post-processing," meaning editing that takes place after the image file is created. When you're working with smartphones, you are largely working with JPEG files, which are files that have already been processed and altered by the phone's software. This means that Photoshop does not have the raw data to work with in the first place. You might be able to do a better job with Photoshop if you were working with RAW files, which right now only Nokia provides.

Adobe is much better than RAW? RAW is not a program, it is a format that Adobe supports and loves. From your first post to this one, it is very apparent that you are not fully aware of Digital Photography. Also when you talk about DSLR's, the d is for Digital, it serves info in 0's and 1's. All SOFTWARE.

if an update improve the picture quality than it means they have added some effects which will improve the pic instantly when it is clicked..... so its same thing your choice u do it using a photoshop or your phone do it own self.. after all they cannot change the camrra hardwere by an update its just a change in the effects
