Check out this advertisement by Nokia for the Lumia 1020.
OK, there is no doubt that the Lumia 1020 has a good camera. But replace the DSLR? No way. I know it has 41 megapixel. But we all know that it is no longer a megapixel game. The quality of the image also depends on the size of the sensor and quality of the lens. There is no way a tiny camera phone sensor can match a DSLR sensor.
I know there is a saying that the best camera is the one that’s with you. But whenever possible, I’ll try to bring my DSLR along because if I have both my DSLR and my camera phone with me, the DSLR is the clear winner. Just because the camera phone is portable and always with you doesn’t mean it can replace your DSLR.
So no matter how good the camera is, there is no way the Lumia 1020 can replace a DSLR. Come on Nokia, surely you can do better than this. And who uses a telephoto lens to shoot portrait shots like this?
