Here are the first camera samples taken with 41-megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020, aka Nokia EOS

Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, the main person behind the Windows Phone project, has uploaded a couple of images from recent trips on Flickr and interestingly the pictures were captured on no other than the... Nokia Lumia 1020


Make no mistake about it - that’s the Nokia camera superphone, the 41-megapixel device that should blow our minds when it appears officially in just a few days. The Nokia Lumia 1020, aka Nokia EOS, aka Nokia Elvis, aka Nokia Lumia 909, looks just like the Lumia 920, but with one huge difference - the camera.

It’s certainly possible to fake Flickr’s EXIF data but we doubt someone like Belfiore would start doing that, so most likely here we have the first camera samples from the Lumia 1020.

Its 41-megapixel shooter should come with lossless zooming capabilities and a huge sensor for pictures unlike that on other smartphones. You can see the amazing clarity of the images right below. Hold your breaths - Nokia will unveil the phone on July 11th in New York and we’d be covering it all live.

Yup, there's the 41 right there.
No noise, no blur...just pure detail!

Ummm, daylight pics aren't exactly the format to use to highlight low noise. Low light makes the sensor work harder.

Let's enjoy the clarity of the picture for the time being, shall we?
This isn't a show to highlight anything but just a sample taken from the phone.
The highlights will surely come, until then, this isn't a bad result even for a day time shot with reference to some point and shoot camera with signs of loudly visible noise even in day time photos.

Yes, the leaking in the run-up to the announcement appears to be in full court press mode. Next will be low light and video samples.

Are you talking about the OIS video? If so, you're pathetic, and I believe you've been corrected several times about it previously.
1) It was not Nokia making that video, it was an ad agency.
2) Nokia apologized for the seeming misleading nature of the video, even though at no point did the video state that the filming was being done with a Nokia device, just what OIS was.
3) OIS works as advertised (surprise! Oh, wait, no, OIS was already on DSLRs before, so, no, no surprise)
4) You claim to own a Nokia, so apparently you weren't THAT betrayed.
5) Go find something better to do with your time and energy.

No, you can't. You can call the Zoom a non-phone, but you can't call it a non-camera.

Anyone noticed the phone near the windscreen of the boat in the second pic?

Looks like its wrapped in the multi-purpose case leaked today. Is it another L1020?

I am totally impressed, but I hope there won't be a fiasco like last time when they used a professional camera to illustrate Lumia 920 prowess

I think they got sufficiently smacked down by the press last year to try that crap again.

Errrrr that's great....but really why is everyone getting so excited its basically a lumia 920 with a better camera stuck on the back....its not that amazing in terms of being a phone which is why you buy a phone in my eyes.....

25. roldefol (Posts: 2984; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)


That's your personal preference. Some people buy a cameraphone because they don't want to have to carry a separate digital camera. This will fit that bill better than 99% of the phones on the market. For those buyers, this is pretty damn exciting!

Judging by the early renders, its more closer to the design of the Lumia 720, which is supposed to be the best in Lumia, in terms of design. I like 820 equally, though

Besides the amazing quality, don't forget the awesome shallow depth of field, which is really uncommon and hard to achieve on phone cameras (for this distance).

epic! im just waiting for the 808 vs this to see how much improvement there is comparitively. im just curioes about the name. it should be named lumia 929, coz 909 would make it sound like a downgrade to 920 and i believe 1020 will be reserved for their future phablet line.

41. roldefol (Posts: 2984; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)


I thought about 929, but the camera is so far ahead of the one on the 928, it's not fair to lump it into the same sequence. 909 does sound like a downgrade. Maybe if this were last year, running WP7.5.

45. roldefol (Posts: 2984; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)


Even then... I wish Nokia the best with the 1020, but I'm waiting for an all-new, compact, well-rounded flagship from them. Something along the lines of a 940 or 950. The 1020 will be a great cameraphone, but it's still an older phone up front.

And stop the AT&T exclusives! Nokia needs all the exposure it can get.

Whoah there. I'm just saying the 1020 is not the be-all end-all of phonedom. A stellar camera alone does not a stellar phone make.

I think that all them can make a better camera. But Nokia screw it up, and put the pureview tech on the air before the others. They were waiting to sell 5...8...13Mpx and so o. Now Nokia open the pandora box, so ... everyone will have to put the cards on the table. Waiting for the Android version, no WP will seduce me. Still waiting

Cameras are evolving all the time, so saying there will be a better camera in the future goes without saying. As for PureView tech, that's something Nokia came up with in-house, so it's impossible to say if any other company could have developed it.
As for an android version, you'll be waiting a long while, if not forever. Try Windows Phone: I switched from android to it and haven't looked back, it is THAT good.
