Photography with the Nokia Lumia 1020

The zoom on the Nokia Lumia 1020 is unique. Thanks to the relatively large image sensor, the 41 megapixel camera can capture many details, enabling the user to zoom-in after the image is captured. You can rotate, zoom, frame and cut the picture. The image quality of the zoomed pictures remain good, thanks to the high resolution. Also picture settings like focus, exposure and white balance are easy to manually adjust. In addition to the 41 megapixel picture the camera will also record a 5 megapixel photo. A unique oversampling technique ensures that the 5 MP images are still very sharp and well exposed, with little noise. The 5 megapixel pictures are much easier to share with others, due to a smaller file size.
