Lumia 900 Image & Video Samples

So After playing around with my stormtrooper for the better part of a week I decided to take it out, show it the scenes, and most importantly do a camera test (I know a comparison against the Lumia 800 would have been perfect but unfortunately my dad chose a very bad time to require a spare phone; which was of course my 800- so my apologies). The Lumia 900 carries the now trademark Nokia/Carl Zeiss 8 Megapixel camera similar but not the same to that found in the N9/Lumia 800; Nokia have assured us that the 900 does not carry the same camera module; and promised better performance than seen with the Lumia 800; Scroll down to see for yourself.


The Rear Camera on the Lumia 900 has a 8Mp sensor capable of capturing 720p Videos; here’s a sample of the video quality I captured the other day in downtown Chicago (note the auto darkening/lightening to compensate for the direct sunlight):

The Front Facing Camera is nice little 1.3 MP camera that spits out both images and videos; the video quality looks superb when being played back on the screen while filming (the CBD under direct sunlight really helps make the colors “pop”); as usual the quality looks better on the actual device than when you put it on the laptop; yet I found that the quality was quite acceptable:


The Lumia 900 has some noticeable advantages over the the Lumia 800 when it comes to still photos; the focus on the phone is much smoother and doesn’t loose focus when getting too close (in Macro mode); over all the color reproduction is also more accurate with less “white-Balance interference” that had plagued the 800 giving it a bluish tint.

Low Light images are also Quite decent (as is almost unavoidable in all phones blacks tend to turn into Blues when capturing at night – except in the 808 of course).

Daylight Photos are pretty and appealing to the eye without giving off fake colors:



Chicago river got its green swag on.





And this is a 100% crop of the previous image; not 808 quality but quite nice I think:

The following three pictures are samples from the Front Facing Camera; Nothing to write home about but not completely horrible either:
