Good week for the Nokia 1020. Closeup, middle of the day or night this smartphone camera makes great images.

or Godot.. hopefully the raw update will not take that long. Nokia has done a couple of recent ‘Nokia Camera’ updates in preparation for the new camera app. Apparently the next step is the phone update from Lumia Amber to Lumia Black. The Black update will allow the camera to capture raw images. Additionally the update will bring low energy abilities for Bluetooth 4 and some other goodies. Nokia is working on keeping the Windows Phone owners happy.
In an ongoing effort to get more 1020 images out there.. here is a link to my Instagram postings. A series of images taken with the Nokia Lumina 1020 of veggies and fruit in grocery stores.
Here is another example of an Pro__highres.jpg — 1st image is an uncorrected jpeg – 10 MB, next jpeg has a little sharping, drew down the highlights and bumped the saturation just a little, 12.8 MB and then the crop plus a screen shot to show the crop. Remember all images © Ed Zirkle 2013
So we have seen the ads Nokia and/or ATT have running showing that you can crop and image and still have something reasonable to look at.
A friend of mine, Perry, has a bird that would love to take chunk out of me if I got close enough, but he looks great and is a good subject.
As you may or may not know, the 1020 makes 2 files for each image made. The small image of the bird is 1.32 MB 1728×3072 and the larger image is 6.72 MB 4352×7712 and both are 72 dpi & sRGB; white balance: auto, digital zoom: 1, EXIF version: 0220, flash: auto, metering mode: average, exposure bias: 0, ISO: 100, 1/30 sec. @ f/2.2.
this is the 1.32 MB image
this is the 6.72 MB file
this is the crop on the bird
and what it looks like
very, very slight sharping… all work done with Windows Photo Gallery 2012. Will discuss WPG2012 later.
So how big a print would you like.
One cravat with all of this. The HiRes image is on the phone so a USB link is required and you will find the file name as: WP_20130928_19_41_00_Pro__highres.jpg Year, month, day, time.
The image is also imbedded with a Geotag which provides a sort of journal for me to reference on the images I make with the Nikon’s.
