The end result is the gallery of images that you can check out right below, and it’s a testament to how much mobile phone cameras have grown. The Lumia 1020 is, of course, a prime example, and its brilliant camera application with easy manual dials for shutter speed, ISO and white balance is part of making these images possible. To help achieve steadier shots and have the phone last through the whole game, a Nokia camera grip also came in handy. All in all, it’s the focus on making a great smartphone camera that enables such impressive images.
Some, however, may still object, saying that smartphones do not have the lenses to make for a true camera replacement (and this would certainly be true), but the perspective these photographs give is somewhat different. “Photography is about telling a story and people can do it with their camera phones as well as their big cameras” - this is the one big idea that the photojournalist that took these pictures wants to leave with this photo set. And it’s worth meditating upon, don’t you think?
