Nokia has announced the new Nokia Lumia 1020 – a 41 megapixel camera phone with optical image stabilisation, Carl Zeiss f/2.2 lens, full HD video with stereo sound, a new Nokia Pro app to add manual controls, 4.5inch screen, Xenon flash, as well as a camera grip accessory (shown above). More details at ePHOTOzine, Nokia, as well as sample photos from Nokia. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is said to be a noticeable improvement over the Nokia PureView 808, with better image processing, optical image stabilisation, as well as a much slimmer phone body, and runs Windows Phone 8 instead of Symbian.
ePHOTOzine has reviewed the new 8.7 megapixel Nokia Lumia 920, with optical image stabilisation, 4.5inch screen, Windows Phone 8, 32gb storage, and full HD video recording. Here’s what they had to say:
“Features are good with full HD video, reasonable macro performance, optical image stabilisation, wide-angle f/2.0 lens, and sharing straight to the popular social network site such as Facebook and Twitter.”
We’ve published sample photos from the new Nokia PureView 808 – it features a large 41 megapixel sensor with a Carl Zeiss f/2.4 lens. It uses a method of “pixel oversampling” to enable higher quality 5 and 8 megapixel images, as well as “optical zoom” without any image quality loss, without having to have a large zoom lens in the camera phone. You can read a full review of the Nokia PureView 808 (at ePHOTOzine), or view our Nokia PureView 808 sample photos here.
ePHOTOzine has reviewed the Nokia PureView 808 to find out how the 41 megapixel camera phone performed. The Nokia PureView 808 is the high end camera phone from Nokia, and the highest specification camera phone, since the Nokia N8. The PureView 808 featurs a Carl Zeiss lens, a large 41 megapixel sensor, and Xenon flash, as well as a 4inch screen, it runs the latest version of Symbian. The Nokia PureView 808 is available from £479 sim free from Amazon UK.
“The Nokia PureView 808 features a large 41 megapixel sensor. This is not only a much higher resolution than other mobile phones (with others maxing out at 16 megapixels), it’s also vastly higher than compact cameras (max 18.2mp), compact system cameras (max 24.3mp), digital SLRs (max 36.3mp), and is even higher than a number of medium format cameras!”
It’s roughly 18+ months since the Nokia N8 was launched, and also 18+ months since I got the Nokia N8 (I bought it as soon as it was available) – which means I’ve been using the camera on the phone for 18+ months now, and I’m still impressed by the image quality the camera produces, even compared to more modern alternatives.
Nokia N8 Features:
The Nokia N8 made a big splash when it was announced due to it’s 12 megapixel 1/1.83″ (1.75 micron pixels) digital camera sized sensor, and 28mm f/2.8 carl zeiss lens. This is similar in size to those that you’d find in serious compact digital cameras, and is larger than most compacts, such as the Nikon Coolpix P300, (1/2.33″ size), and compared to the more normal small sized mobile phone cameras – even on better ones such as the Sony Exmor R (backlit CMOS) sensors the size is smaller at 1/3.2″ (1.4 micron pixels).
The new Nokia PureView 808 features a large 41 megapixel sensor, Carl Zeiss Tessar f/2.4 lens equivalent to 26/28mm depending on whether you’re shooting in 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio, and a large 4inch screen, 16GB ram, MicroSD slot for expansion and HDMI out. The camera phone is Nokia’s first product to include PureView technology, and this means when shooting 5 megapixel images you can use 3x zoom without any loss in image quality. When recording Full HD video you can also zoom in 4x. ePHOTOzine has posted full size sample photos using the different modes available, including ISO samples from ISO50 to ISO1600.
Just got an interesting email from Nokia PR, with an interesting link to a video sneak peak at a new mobile phone coming from Nokia with a strong emphasis on the image quality of the coming camera. Nokia tend to put a very strong emphasis on image quality on camera phones generally, but like to have a flagship device with the highest image quality of all camera phones, for example the Nokia N8 has a large 12 mp sensor the same size as you find in digital cameras, as well as a proper xenon flash (again the same you find in compact cameras). The rumours are that this new phone will be an update to the twelve month old Nokia N8.
After having the Nokia N8 for 12 months, we’ve uploaded some of the best shots taken with it. RecentlyReviewed.net has a review of the Nokia N8 Camera Phone, including additional sample photos from the 12mp camera – it features a 12mp sensor, 28mm Carl Zeiss Auto Focus lens, Xenon flash, a large 3.5″ touch screen, and all the usual mobile phone features such as MP3 playback, FM Radio, GPS with free navigation, 3.5mm audio out, HDMI, HD video recording 720p, 16gb ram built in, MicroSD slot, Facebook and Twitter support and runs Symbian’s latest operating system Symbian^3.

“The Nokia N8 Camera: One of the greatly anticipated (and hyped) features of the Nokia N8 is the 12 megapixel camera with Xenon flash. Nokia have put in a 12 megapixel sensor that is the same size as you find in your typical compact digital camera from Canon, Panasonic etc, and whilst nowhere near as good as the large sensor you would find in a Digital SLR, it is an improvement over the tiny sensors found in every other camera phone. As proof to how serious Nokia are taking the camera abilities of the N8, they posted 34 questions and answers about JUST the camera on the phone.”
