    I feel that this issue is probably just a setting so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction because it's becoming annoying. Every time I take a picture, I have to hold the phone in place until it's done "processing" (long after the shutter click) or the picture comes out blurry. It can't actually be designed this way. Anyone???

    That's because smart stabilization/low light setting is on. You can turn it off and it will not have to process anything, but shots that are in moderate to low lighting will come out darker.

    See, I knew it had to be a setting. Thanks, that did the trick.

    Hmm. I found in practice, with it on, it will mostly take a focused photo in daylight straight away (ok it decides processing isn't needed then) - but also if I take a twilight / night shot outdoors the processing bar comes up but I am usually moving the phone away after the shot and it's still good.

    ^ Yes, I usually leave it on as well being that in most cases the environment I am in has sufficient lighting and that the camera's processing function isn't needed. I am overall satisfied with the Note 3 camera. I tried other camera applications specifically for its low light capabilities but in the end the built in has always in my case provided the best results.

    Me too. I'll stick with the phones set up for now. I am finally getting some good evening / night shots just on Auto and Smart Stab. I have to try adding HDR as well.

    I agree. I think stock is still the best option overall. I just wish it didn't have to process a fairly lit scene and would only do it under "night" conditions.

    I can live with it but for the record, my previous phone, the Lumia 1020 took the most amazing pictures and it is second to none in low light settings. The room could be almost pitch black and it would still turn out great. Amazing camera phone.

    Yeah but there is a huge difference with the camera/sensor on that phone compared to this one.

    Yes , the smart stabilization is strictly for lowlight shots... and the flash is damn powerful which helps a lot..

    Anyone figured out how to get good macro shots with the stock camera app?

    When the subject is smaller than the focus box i find it is almost impossible to focus on it. ...

    No doubt and I still love my Note 3 more. The Lumia camera is great but the Note gives me more of what I need.
