A Month With The Nokia Lumia 1020 41Mp Pureview
4th November 2013
Daily use of the phone and camera has gained more respect for what Nokia and Microsoft has done. This version is running Windows Phone 8 (amber) and the next update will be in the next few weeks to 8.1. The Camera Grip also arrived, and as you see in the photo at the top of this post and others below, the Camera Grip made by Nokia turns the 1020 into a camera. The grip has an extra battery, shutter button and a tripod connection. It just slips on and doesn’t increase the weight that much, but improves the phone to be used as a camera. One of the better accessories for a phone. The other photos have been taken over this month in different levels of light and each is labeled. All the photos below, except the last one have all been captured using the ‘auto’ settings. Click on the photos, have a look and make your own judgement on the quality the Nokia Lumia 1020 can bring.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 takes great photos in good light as you see the two above – the clear morning sun light with shadows from other buildings are captured well.
The photo above was captured by the Smart Cam App, which is now integrated in the Nokia Camera Pro now.
The last photo above is the first one using the Camera Grip and a Tripod with a shutter speed of 1 second, ISO of 100 and Focus at Infinity. This was a quick test to see what it can do, so now in the next couple of weeks will capture some night photos using these new accessories.
