Nokia Goes Big With Revolutionary Lumia 1020 – Details New ‘Pro Camera’ AppJuly 11, 2013 1 Comment
Nokia had a fun time showing off the new Lumia 1020 on stage today. A lot of the fun though was made possible of course to the amazing 41MP camera but also their new Revolutionary ‘Pro Camera’ Application.
The app has tons of options that you bump into in a Pro DSLR camera but without a lot of the hassle. It is really user friendly and touch friendly too.
Reframing and dual capture
Marcus and his colleagues wanted to make it easy for people to get the most of the Lumia 1020 camera and its monster 41-megapixel sensor – it was all about freedom, and removing the stress from capturing the moment.
One of the chief benefits of the huge sensor is the amazing amount of detail that it captures. You can zoom in and zoom in. And zoom in again.
“The Lumia 1020 captures such great amounts of detail that you can shoot without having to think about framing the shot, and then edit the picture afterwards to make it perfect. Thanks to this unique feature called dual capture, you get an easy to share 5-megapixel photo, but it also saves a full resolution image in the background so you can go back to that shot for endless reframing opportunities.”
Instead of deep diving into menus, Nokia Pro Camera uses sliders and clear visual indicators on the display of the Lumia 1020 to let you control the camera settings.
Using Nokia Pro Camera you can control settings such as:
- Shutter speed (1/16000 to 4 seconds)
- EV value
- ISO (100 to 4,000)
- White balance
- Manual focus
“Mobile photographers have never been able to fully control parameters like shutter speed, so if you wanted to take a long exposure shot of a night scene, you had to use a DSLR-camera or similar,” says Marcus.
“However, such cameras don’t have the usability of a big touchscreen with multi-touch, and the ability to do gestures like swipe & two-finger-rotate. You have to use scroll wheels and buttons to navigate long menus, and really know what you’re doing. Now with Pro Camera you get a great user interface and creative control!”
