Sony Xperia Z1 Clear Zoom vs Lumia 1020 lossless zoom samples
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 01, 2013, 7:22 AM
Sony's oversampling makes an 8 MP image out of the sensor, letting you close on the scene a tad shy of two times, whereas the huge sensor of the Lumia lets you zoom in more, though it results in 5 MP auto-mode photos.
PureView lossless tech of Nokia and the Clear Zoom of Sony, and the results were pretty neck-and-neck when there was enough luminance around.A dedicated blog took identical photos with the Lumia 1020 and the Z1, then zoomed in with the
When the light starts to go down, though, the gigantic sensor, optical image stabilization and Xenon flash of the Lumia 1020 certainly gave it a huge advantage before the Z1, though Sony's phone arguably brings a higher level of photographic prowess to the Android world. Check out the zoom crops compared below, with Lumia 1020 on the left, and the Xperia Z1 on the right.

Lumia 1020 is better in terms of sharpness but lacks natural colors compared to Z1.

little better? The score is 1020 84 points Z1 67 points. Size "Lumia 1020 130.4 x 71.4 x 10.4 mm , 158 g Xperia Z1 144 x 74 x 8.5 mm, 170 g + there is no OIS and No Xenon flash!!" "Yes, no hump, but massive bezels to hide the hump. The Z had big bezels, this is massive. It is only around 6-7 mm shorter than the 6-inch Bandit. It is the biggest 5-inch phone in the world, way bigger than the S4 and even much bigger than the 5.2 inch G2"

The only shot were the Z1's noticably better is the flower shot. Under good light, it seems good to battle with the 1020 but not so much in low light.

You need to adjust your monitor settings if you think Nokia wins. These shots are super saturated on the Nokia 1020 and any photographer would point and laugh at you if you though saturation was better than natural color.

Nokia wins in moses cases, except for the flower in terms of details. Camera image saturation on Iphone is quite high yet it sells well. I prefer natural colours but saturated colours are more eye pleasing. Quite disappointed that Nokia didn't keep the natural colors like on the 808. You can click on the source link there and see that L1020 actually did WIN. He doesn't have to adjust his monitor. no point having natural colours if it can't resolve details.

If you think fully fledged photographers are going to be using a PHONE to take photos you must be in a fairytale land. DSLR cameras are what they use buddy. These phones are not for professionals, they are trying to make people feel AS IF they are professionals. AND MOST people (target audience) prefer over-saturated images that have nice colours than compared to real-life images.

Don´t come to fight with Nokia in cameraphone area. I personally prefer Android, but no one beats Nokia in camera quality, that´s the reason why my next phone will be a 1020. Unfortunately I´ll leave Android. I´d love a Note III with the pureview technology.
