A purchase-deterring situation for many interested in the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone is that it does not take low-light pictures as well as expected. Originally posted by My Windows Phone Story, there is a quick guide on settings to use when taking pictures in different low-light situations on your Lumia 900.
For low-light photos: Change the ‘ISO’ settings from ‘Auto’ (the default) to a value of either 100 or 200.
For up-close photos: Change the ‘Focus Mode’ setting from ‘Auto’ (the default) to ‘Macro’.
For the best everyday setup: Do steps 1 and 2. Also, change the ‘Exposure’ setting from ’0′ to ’1.0′ for shots that are less dim and turn off Flash unless it’s really dark.
Remember! If you don’t want to fiddle with the settings, after you change them once make sure you tap on ‘Save settings’ in the Camera app so they won’t revert.
Windows Phone Daily came up with a perfect picture comparison between “auto” settings and manual settings based on the guide above. It is a huge difference indeed as they put it, there is no other way to describe it. We have their two sample pictures below.
