Camera quality has dropped after belle update on my n8

The image quality has dropped significantly on my n8 after the belle update. The auto focus is not as precise as it was with anna. I am surprised no one has reported this matter. On a discussion on beta labs D.Dinning said that there's no need to install the previously released camera update for n8 after updating to belle. I am confused now. Please help.

You are right completely. I have not like this update call ''BELLE''. The camera's autofocus function doesn't work as well as Anna. In the dark scene image has to much grainfull and so noisy. This BELLE has a bigbattery life problem. I'd not appreciate this.

I've heard this from several places now. Does anyone have two N8 phones(one anna, one belle) so that we could do a side by side comparison. I hope they did that while they were developing Belle... 

 

I asked Damian on twitter about it, and he said there shouldn't be a difference, but maybe they missed something.

Hi axemanxx
You have correctly pointed out the much grainy images in low light. I have not compared the video quality yet. But i am not too optimistic about it either.
Since i bought n8 primarily for it's camera, i am not satisfied at all with this update.
And I am not facing any battery problems with belle.
Nokia people are not acknowledging the problem with camera quality on n8 and neither there are enough people complaining about it.
I guess it will take huge time for them to bring a camera update for n8(if they do). Otherwise i'll have no choice but to revert back to anna.
Hey D.Dinning, please acknowledge this problem. It's genuine.
And please promise a quick update. Or else where do the proud owners of n8 (the best camera phone in the world) now stand?

Hey vlado3g
Where else have you heard about the same problem?
If you have an n8, you can clearly see the out of focus images it clicks now. After clicking loads of pics through my n8, i can clearly tell that it no longer clicks razor sharp pictures.
I am not present on twitter. i guess you should once again ping Dinning about the problem. Hope he helps.

@euphoric  I've seen complaints on several message boards. Mainly on http://forum.dailymobile.se ..

I did tweet Dinning about it, and here what he said

I feel like he might not be involved with the N8 anymore, I don't think he would allow anything like this to happen if he was.

 

And yes, I do have an N8, and I could see a difference in the way it focuses.. Landscape mode seems to be working fine, but in auto mode things are a little off.

I totally agree since updated the belle camera quality degraded.

It would be easier for us to see the difference if you had taken the same exact picture so that we could look at them side by side

Yes, the easiest way is for some one to do a side by side with pr 1.x/Anna against a Belle phone, and it will be clear, and we would be able to kind of see how big the issue is overall. Hopefully someone has two phones :)

I also noticed on upgrading from Anna to Belle that the image quality on my phone has decreased.

I originally thought that it was just me being overly critical and seeing something that wasn't there, however it is reassuring that other people have picked up on this.

Perhaps someone from Nokia could help to explain the reason for this?

Damn, should I be concerned about that !? Cuz I realy loved the quality of the pictures I have taken so far...

It would be nice if someone who has at least to N8s to take pictures of somethiing from the exact same position, at the exact same time, with the same light etc. with phone standing still so no movement could compromise the image quality and I think that a landscape would do just fine as there are more details to compare, and some night taken photos for comparison;)

I haven't updated cuz belle isn't available for my device, but from what I read so far I'm starting to think that staying on Anna is the best thing to do !
