Nokia Lumia 1020 – Phone for the photographers

What has gotten the Nokia Lumia 1020 is striking. A little over a year first showed PureView technology. Developed for Symbian phones, was too large and cumbersome to integrate it into a contemporary smartphone. Here is today in all its glory in the new company phone with 4.5 inch screen. And, maybe because I'm an amateur photographer mobile, I see in it the way to go for the rest of the industry.

The idea is the same as the 808 PureView. This phone sensor captures 41 million pixels but the result is compressed in a 5 megapixel image. It is possible to zoom and pan the photos more accurately selecting different parts of the image and can even be re-frame and zoom images once taken, all without losing quality finish.

In recent months we have seen several attempts to mix a camera with a phone. Not a bad idea but the result is still a sum of two devices. PureView is, instead, an attempt to find a different solution that does not require complex optical or create a phone too big. As an additional feature, has an accessory that adds a handle with firing button and some extra battery.

Nokia Lumia 1020 is not perfect, of course, but some of the problems are not the fault of Nokia. Windows Phone 8 does not have many apps that would help take advantage of the camera, as the editor Snap seed or a native version of Instagram. The phone can stay somewhat short in memory (32 GB, not expandable, for a phone with clear emphasis on large photographs) and is more expensive, even subsidized, other market offerings. In the USA, goes on sale for $ 299 on contract when it is normal for most high-end phones to stay in $ 199.

But Nokia Lumia 1020 still an interesting twist in the phone market and one of the best products that have come from Finland in the last five years.
