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.
