    I usually set to manual, then turn the auto white balance on, set ISO to 200, then adjust the exposure to be -0.3.depending on environment, most of the time I only change exposure after all previous setting set, rarely ISO 100 or 400. However it took time to be familiar between different phone camera. same setting may not applicable to another.

      Correct you are. I like to keep my ev to -0.3 as well when im outdoors but when im indoors, I usually just keep it at +0.6, can edit down after. I rarely play with my ISO but i may just start doing so soon. As for white Balance, that one I do manually adjust. Shame you can’t adjust your K value manually!

    As for point no.2; why not take images in 4:3 and crop later. Lumia 920 and 1020 sample different portions of the sensor to produce 16:9 and 4:3 images, resulting in 16:9 photos having a physically wider field of view than the 4:3 images.

      Thanks for this, I have no doubt about the wider FOV for the 16:9 images, but I just feel that for most instances which are not landscape shots, it looks a little better to shoot at 4:3!

      goes to show no matter how crappy the photo quality was, you will still admire it.

      so it’s not how you take it, but what’s in it.
