Scientific imaging companies must be crapping their pants right now. Cause a lot of those cameras and rigs pieces cost upwards of $10000 each (many pieces needed for most sets to work), then you add all the proprietary software...

If this is good enough to replace the science supply racket, labs no longer have to pay 100k for a decent microscope with image capture capabilities.

So, when is well paid ad, the more MP suddenly start to matter??? LOL

"What is even more remarkable is that the Lumia 1020 can be had on a 2-year agreement with AT&T for only $99.
Even at full retail, $610, it is a great deal "

We get it.

The camera on this phone really is in a league of its own. I'm still learning to take better photos on my wife's phone.

DXoMark did the review. They're also the place every one quotes when they say that the pureview has the best camera (along with the 1020).

So, this is a valid (and respected ) source in the tech community.

And WMPoweruser is an un-biased source yes???

I never said wppoweruser was but I'll take the collection of most sites and its pretty common knowledge that the 1020 is the camera to beat.. Unless you are a fandroid and delusional

Furthermore it had the s4 beating the 1020 and that's laughable at best

It was an average of photo quality and video quality, and no offense, but the Nokia Lumia 1020's video...just...kinda...sucks.

To be fair DxOMark look at both photo and video and the 1020's (I've had one since the day it came out) video performance isn't that great. Plus they only rate a device once and the 1020 was tested before the Amber and Black updates vastly improved the photo quality.

If they were to test it again today it'd still be behind on video, but would undoubtedly be top for stills.

Dethroned doesn't means that now 808 will start taking poor photographs!
And you simply cannot measure a sensor's full potential in a LAB!

PS. Don't fight now!

I wish they tested the 1020 with that DIY microscope (that was published here IIRC) that could produce some nice shots.

too bad taking photos is not my hobby. for me, smartphone with an average camera(12mp or 8mp) is enough for me. because i want a smartphone with more powerful or higher specs. not a higher camera pixels.

I'm definitely taking better pictures than I ever have with a smartphone with the Lumia Icon. The Snapdragon 800 combined with a 5 inch 1080p screen certainly helps.
