What is lossless zoom and how does it work in the Lumia 1020 and Xperia Z1?

Smartphone cameras have been improving at a rapid pace, and while the field owes credit to many, it is Nokia, and as of late -- Sony -- that are at the helm. Every year, we're treated to larger sensors, more and bigger pixels, larger apertures, OIS, and more features than we can count. But one thing has been missing for a long while now, and that's proper zoom...

If I'm not mistaken Sony has used this technology in Cybershot since 2011

Yes, but Nokia was the first to bring it to a smartphone.

My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX150 has that clear image zoom. It's the only thing I don't like about it. The image quality actually drops kinda lot. But it has 10x optical zoom so it doesn't really matter lol.

pretty useless without steady hands or without using a tripod. when zoomed, the blurring effect of slight movements is amplified. it's better to just take a big photo that makes use of all the MP count of the camera and zoom later on.

Agreed.. That's what I did when I had a 1020.

That's where OIS comes in on the L1020. It takes alot of that shake out of the equation. That being said, I agree that it is better to take the big photo... especially when you consider that the L1020 can save the photos uncompressed.
