Here are the first camera samples taken with 41-megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020, aka Nokia EOS

Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore, the main person behind the Windows Phone project, has uploaded a couple of images from recent trips on Flickr and interestingly the pictures were captured on no other than the... Nokia Lumia 1020


Make no mistake about it - that’s the Nokia camera superphone, the 41-megapixel device that should blow our minds when it appears officially in just a few days. The Nokia Lumia 1020, aka Nokia EOS, aka Nokia Elvis, aka Nokia Lumia 909, looks just like the Lumia 920, but with one huge difference - the camera.

It’s certainly possible to fake Flickr’s EXIF data but we doubt someone like Belfiore would start doing that, so most likely here we have the first camera samples from the Lumia 1020.

Its 41-megapixel shooter should come with lossless zooming capabilities and a huge sensor for pictures unlike that on other smartphones. You can see the amazing clarity of the images right below. Hold your breaths - Nokia will unveil the phone on July 11th in New York and we’d be covering it all live.

Yup, there's the 41 right there. No noise, no blur...just pure detail!

Ummm, daylight pics aren't exactly the format to use to highlight low noise. Low light makes the sensor work harder.

Let's enjoy the clarity of the picture for the time being, shall we? This isn't a show to highlight anything but just a sample taken from the phone. The highlights will surely come, until then, this isn't a bad result even for a day time shot with reference to some point and shoot camera with signs of loudly visible noise even in day time photos.

Yes, the leaking in the run-up to the announcement appears to be in full court press mode. Next will be low light and video samples.

Are you talking about the OIS video? If so, you're pathetic, and I believe you've been corrected several times about it previously. 1) It was not Nokia making that video, it was an ad agency. 2) Nokia apologized for the seeming misleading nature of the video, even though at no point did the video state that the filming was being done with a Nokia device, just what OIS was. 3) OIS works as advertised (surprise! Oh, wait, no, OIS was already on DSLRs before, so, no, no surprise) 4) You claim to own a Nokia, so apparently you weren't THAT betrayed. 5) Go find something better to do with your time and energy.

You can say it, but nobody is likely to believe you. Don't be such a party poop! Let the Nokia fans have their day.

You can say fake on S4 Zoom's article.

Posts: 4744; Member since: Jan 28, 2011

No, you can't. You can call the Zoom a non-phone, but you can't call it a non-camera.

That's not a phone camera. I'm getting this. I can deal with the lack of certain apps/games.

It is good for a smartphone photo, but not as good as DSLR.

Where is the noise? So much detail, I am not used to see this quality from any phone camera.

Anyone noticed the phone near the windscreen of the boat in the second pic? Looks like its wrapped in the multi-purpose case leaked today. Is it another L1020?
