Playing Around with the Nokia Lumia 1020

I came across a Nokia Lumia 1020 last week that was being offered at a great price (it is a really old phone as far as phones go after all), and couldn’t pass it up. Like many others I had read about the camera on this phone being somewhat of a ground breaker. It offers 41mp, has a relatively large sensor for a cell phone, it has optical image stabilization and shoots raw files in a handy DNG format.

The one thing I was really looking for was a decent camera to accompany me on my rides, so what you’ll see here are mostly gathered from my rides over the last few days.

I came across these noodles at the end of a long ride and was tempted, but I had plans to meet family and friends at a nearby cafe for lunch.

So far I’m pretty happy with the phone. My biggest complaint is that the yellow channel seems way out of line and needs some work in post and in artificial light the white balance is way off. Fingers are crossed for a firmware update to correct this issues. If not, I still have my iPhone and don’t plan on getting rid of it yet.
