ExecuTech: Nokia Lumia 1020 Closing Gap Between Cameras and Smartphones

Nokia has come up with the best cameraphone on the market

Nokia has come up with the best cameraphone on the market, with the Lumia 1020 packing a powerful 41-megapixel lens (more than many point-and-shoot cameras) that captures sharp photos in 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio in a sleek, well-designed lightweight body (available in white, black or a bright yellow). One downside: The lens is large and protrudes a bit. But the upside far outweighs any visual annoyance that may create.

The Lumia also performs impressively when capturing video, with sharp 1080p HD imagery, backed by clear sound from its built-in microphone.

Images can be edited using the Nokia Pro Cam app, and stored in the phone’s 32GB memory.

As a telephone, there’s also nothing to complain about. The phone and apps function well using the Windows Phone 8 operating system and the handset’s 4.5-inch touchscreen. Keep in mind, however, that there are fewer apps available on Windows-powered devices, although Microsoft promises more are coming. Instagram isn’t available, but Hipstamatic’s Oggl is, for example. Battery life is more than acceptable.

Overall, consider the Lumia a very suitable alternative to Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S4, especially for those interested in capturing images or video on the go. The lines between cameras and smartphones have long been blurring, but with the Lumia 1020, it’s now harder than ever to see a difference between the two.
