Nokia Lumia 1020 vs 1520 vs 925 cameras get compared with mixed results

0. phoneArena 03 Feb 2014, 08:27 posted on

While Lumia 1020 had no sharpening used at all, and it presented the most accurate color representation, it was also the slowest among the phones tested. The huge sensor doesn't really help when the photo has to be processed, so Lumia 1020 took its time. We noticed the same thing in our camera comparisons - Nokia's flagship is as quick to focus as the others, but shot-to-shot times are very slow in comparison...

Nokia's Camera is nothing like anything. Best cameras so far.

True, but trying to catch photos real quick aren't ideal. There's con's and pros to everything.

burst mode will capture 2-3seconds of that perfect shot.

I rarely use it on my 925, so for me 'shot to shot' isnt important, perhaps at a sporting event. But if i really needed that kind of speed and other things, i would take my dslr.

Do consumers even bother if their camera is quick to load up/take photos?

It is frustrating if camera slow. You may lose interesting moment.

The picture is taken, they can move, it is not going to hurt the processing.

Also if you are worried, the burst mode is your friend, you can even swap faces remove objects etc. So it is kinda trivial if your loosing the moment because you need to take 5 pics to get the two people to smile. Burst mode takes care of that.

Recently I was playing with my nieces in iluminated - Alice in Wonderland like - labirynth. They were running from me, and I was trying to take photos of them with my 808 camera. Results were awesome. I set Sport setting, that made fixed focus at everything above 1.5 meter, and a Xenon flash. It made photo instantly, when the button was pressed. Xenon flash made everything up to 4-5 meters bright. Sure there is no multiple photos, but with instant photo option, and bright lamp, effect were much better, than with any other photo camera.

My 1520 takes terrific photos, but it captures horrible video...
But, Nokia always gives us plenty of updates to fix these things..

The 925 is probably the prettiest Lumia I've seen.

Yeah, I've tried holding it at a store once. Beats my old HTC One V in terms of feeling and handling
