41 Megapixel Camera Phone: Nokia Lumia 1020

Quote:
Nok1a Lumia 1020 has got a feature named Dual Capture. With this feature, the smartphone is capable of taking two shots at single time, one at 38MP resolution, and other at 5MP. As per the company, out of these clicks, one taken at 38MP is perfect for photo-editing, while the other one is meant for social media uploads.
This 41MP Zeiss camera features PureView imaging technology. It features two types of flash - LED and Xenon. While all of these camera features are more than enough to deliver a high-end photography experience, but the stop is not here yet. To further enhance the photo-clicking experience, company has included Rich Recording video capturing technology and Pro Camera app.

Nokia are starting to do some good phones again. My current phone is a next gen Nokia and I am very happy with it - at least the glass can stand up to being sneezed at without cracking.

I'm happy with my Lumia 920. This seems like the photographer's edition of the same phone so I'm not very excited by the concept.

Here's the problem with such a high megapixel resolution, the image files will be very large and heavy. So unless Nokia increases their memory storage by extreme amount how do they manage to save such large files on the phone. I understand the first photo is at 38 mb and the second is taken at 5mb, however the 38mb files are still very large per photo.

I just checked the specs on the Lumia 1020, 32gb internal storage, I don't think that's good enough.


I have a DSLR that has 24 megapixel sensor, and I think that is already large enough. A smartphone pushing it to 41 megapixels sounds bizarre, why would you need such a large resolution?

You obviously haven't read the white papers. The resolution is there to allow lossless zoom (a.k.a. cropping the full-res image/video) as well as downsampling. Every lumia comes with a Skydrive storage (7/25/50GB).
The full resolution images are between 7 and 13Mb so unless you are bent on producing only these, 32GB should last for at least 20000 8Mpix pictures.
You can check the 38Mpix pictures here http://conversations.nokia.com/2013/...llery-zoom-in/.

Okay the seven to thirteen mp wasn't stated in the original source.

Yeah, but I got it unlocked a week ago. The deal with Nokia gave AT&T only six months of exclusivity.

That means only AT&T has the right to the smartphone at the moment. Those who are going to purchase the phones from the sole carrier for that period will also be gaining exclusivity. What a way to go with Nokia plans.

It is looks like the camera is something meant for professional photography.

Sensors these days are of lesser importance even if this is a tiny one. It's all about lenses. Good lenses are big and heavy. You can't put that in a phone.
