Nokia Camera Grip for Lumia 1020 is official, priced at $79
Just as we expected, Nokia announced a peculiar accessory for its new Lumia 1020 smartphone. It is known as the Nokia Camera Grip and it is more or less the device we expected it to be, given the fact that images of it leaked on the web already

Think of the Nokia Camera Grip as a snap-on shell for the Nokia Lumia 1020, designed in a way to make the handset feel more like a camera when in use. The accessory has its own large button that rests right on top of the 2-stage shutter key, easing the process of focusing and composing each picture. In addition, the Camera Grip holds extra juice - 1020mAh is the exact capacity of the case's built-in rechargeable battery, which we assume would boost the Nokia Lumia 1020's longevity by about 50%. A threaded receptacle on the side of the accessory allows the smartphone to be mounted on a tripod.

The Nokia Camera Grip, available in white, black, and yellow, will be released alongside the Lumia 1020 later this month. $79 is how much you'll have to pay in order to own one of these.

Nice i thought it was just a grip ...good to see battery added in there cause xenon is a big drain and this combo is probably still smaller than the s4 zoom. I'm thinking of switching to this.... (owner of note 2)

instead of switch you can buy a good camera and keep your note 2 (if you have one)

there's not a camera better than this ...maybe at double the price...in that case...switching to the 1020 is a lot better

Are you serious? Try checking out a Sony RX100. If you don't buy on contract, the L1020 is priced a little higher than the RX100. The RX100 is a waaaay better camera than the L1020. Better optical zoom, better max aperture, 60 fps video, and, and, and.

Well i don't want to carry 2 things...that's kinda of the point of having a smartphone with a decent camera if i had a digital camera to carry around then i'd carry the smallest thinnest phone available like razr or something

There's no way you're going back to that screen size (if you own Note 2).

I'm disappointed Nokia didn't make the huge bezels smaller and increase the screen to at least 4.7" res to 1080p, the photos would look even more amazing (when viewing them on the phone).
And I like that they changed to OLED, I wonder how it compares to the S4's AMOLED.

It's such a shame Nokia don't do phones for Android.

If only it has a MicroSD port, too, with hot swapping.
